Eat My Words bookstore has scooped up a tour stop from multi-(creative) Robert Hunter, whose transition from alt-Country singing to writing has resulted in a debut novel equal parts romp and reflection. Inspired by his wife’s battle with cancer (she joins him on the tour in celebration), Relapse: A Love Story follows an almost-novelist and almost-husband suffering from writer’s block, the complexity of wedding planning, and a poor sense of moonshine tolerance. A set of music from Hunter’s two LPs follows the reading. Saturday, 7-9 p.m. Free. —Isabelle Wattenberg
