Check two of your holiday to-do’s (cookie swap and book shopping) off your list tonight at local indie literary publisher Coffee House Press’s cookie swap/book sale event. You bring cookies, you get to take some home, and they’ll wrap your book buys for free, too. Plus this year there’s a cookie contest and for every book sold they’ll donate $5 to Voices For Racial Justice5-8 PM. Free.Dominic Rothinger
