Alan Alda Book Reading Tonight

199.jpgThe aftermath of Hurricane Ike is still killing people, the economy is in the toilet and the Los Angeles Times is suing itself. Isn’t it nice to know that Alan Alda still exists? Well, he does. And he’s going to prove it by showing up to Diesel, a bookstore in Brentwood tonight at 7 p.m.

Come hear him talk about his new book, “Things I Overheard While Talking to Myself.”

Or just, you know, wander in, talking to yourself. Either way, you’re in for a nice diversion.
