Reading Roundup: This Week's Top Literary Events

Each week, we offer a roundup of the best literary events in the city. All events are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted. Want to submit an upcoming event for consideration? Go here.

Nicole Daedone (Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm)

Tuesday, July 26th, 6 pm, at Book Passage SF (1 Ferry Building)

Daedone, founder of the SOMA collective OneTaste, is committed to helping women achieve better orgasms through a practice known as orgasmic meditation, or OM. She recently hosted a pop-up space on Sutter St. to promote her new book on the subject, from which she'll read on Tuesday at Book Passage. Though the pop-up shuttered on July 18th, potential converts are encouraged to pick up the book or stop into OneTaste's regular digs at 1080 Folsom St.

Marcia Clark (Guilt by Association)

Friday, July 22nd, 7:30 pm, at Book Passage Corte Madera (51 Tamal Vista Blvd.)

Clark, the former prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson trial, has taken on a curious second act: mystery writer. And with blurbs from the likes of James Ellroy and snaps from Publisher's Weekly, it appears that she's the rare celebrity novelist who's actually delivered on her fame. The story centers around a Clark-like Los Angeles D.A. investigating the mysterious death of a colleague, and reviews frequently mention the book's humor as one of its strong points.

Reading Roundup: This Week's Top Literary Events

San Francisco plays host to visiting authors of all stripes, not to mention a bevy of homegrown literary talent.

Writers with Drinks

Saturday, July 9th, 7:30-9:30 pm, at Make-Out Room (3225 22nd St.)

This monthly event brings together a diverse group of writers (including a number of out-of-towners) to read short excerpts of their work. Featured readers for the July edition include Los Angeles-based Charles Yu, poet/novelist Jesse Ball, retro career-advice guru Lynn Peril, and novelist Anna North (more on several of these authors below). Admission is a $5-10 sliding scale, and true to the event's name, drinks are available at the bar.
