Midweek Picks: Robert Earl Keen Rides Into LFK and Read Across Lawrence Goes To Church

Well, it's a boring midweek in LFK.  Fat Tuesday revelry has passed and many of you have no doubt given up PBR for Lent (joke). 

Perhaps a Wednesday night visit to the Granada to see Mr. Robert Earl Keen is in order?  Don't get him confused with some of those country posers that pass through there on a regular basis.  Robert Earl's a real-deal songwriter.  Our pals from Biemer's will be in there slinging barbecue.  This picture says we're going (though we're probably not really going unless someone gives us a ticket).

And Read Across Lawrence reaches its main event on Thursday with a 7:00 visit from Marilynne Robinson, author of this year's selection, Housekeeping.  She's speaking at Plymouth Congregational Church. It seems unlikely that beer will be part of this event, but otherwise it should be a nice evening.  Details here via LPL.

Now it's truth telling time. How many of you scenesters read it?
