This week’s best lit events include the works Tina’s Mouth, Distrust That Particular Flavor and The Time of Our Lives.

This Wednesday at The Booksmith, filmmaker Keshni Kashyap presents her graphic novel, Tina’s Mouth: An Existential Comic Diary. Illustrated by Mari Araki, Tina’s Mouth is a smart, comedic story about the trials of teendom at a Southern California prep school.

Thursday, also at The Booksmith, novelist William Gibson reads from his first collection of nonfiction, Distrust That Particular Flavor. Ranging from tech to history, Gibson’s work offers well-presented opinions on and insight to our modern world.

Tom Brokaw makes a trip to the Bay this Sunday to speak at The Dominican University of California in San Rafael. One of our most beloved journalists, Brokaw will present his latest, The Time of Our Lives: A Conversation about America; Who We Are, Where We’ve Been and Where We Need to go Now, to Recapture the American Dream (whew!).
