Christian Kiefer reads from his novel The Infinite Tides ($26.00), the story of an astronaut aboard the International Space Station who one day receives word that his sixteen-year-old daughter has died in a car accident, and that his wife has left him. Returning to earth, he is alone with the ghosts, memories and feelings of the past. Kiefer's band will provide musical accompaniment; refreshments, including TANG, will also be served.
