We’re nerdy enough that out of the dozens and dozens of really fun things to do this weekend, we’re maybe most looking forward to hearing ultra-talented local authors like John Jodzio and Brad Zellar—in addition to Neal Karlan and Julie Schumacher, who was just a finalist for the Thurber Prize for humor(!)—engage in a wide-ranging discussion about their writing craft and what other art inspires them. And face it, you’re that nerdy, too. See you there. Saturday, 4 PM. $5 suggested donation. —Tracy Oxford
