The war on terror is coming to the DoubleTree Hotel. Well, sort of: Dr. Reza Aslan, at 7 pm tonight, will set forth his view that the international approach to Islamic fundamentalism has been fundamentally flawed. Ante up $20 to get into the discussion.

Or maybe your idea of a literary event involves watching movies. In which case you should be at the Magic Lantern tonight from 6:30-9 pm for two flicks ($10): The Last Storyteller, about preserving Irish folklore, and Rebel Frontier, about unrest in Butte-area mines circa World War I. (It's based on Dashiell Hammett's Red Harvest. Hammett, once upon a time, lived in the Davenport Hotel. And then Sam Shepard played him in that movie about Hammett and Lillian Hellman. And Sam Shepard is cool. So you should watch this movie — in which, we're pretty sure, "red" implies "Commie agitator."

A panel for every campus. Seriously, on Friday, there are discussion panels at all three local community colleges (SCC, SFCC, NIC in CdA) and at Gonzaga, Eastern and in the U-District. So check out for details. 

Live fiction, live poetry. Friday night's big event includes the live recording of three short stories at the Bing ("Selected Shorts," 7 pm, $25) followed by the late-night poetry salon at the Hotel Lusso (free). But more on that tomorrow. And read our coverage in this week's issue. (It's on the cover. You can't miss it.)
