Emotional Intelligence Daniel Goleman's book about the importance of, for instance, empathy, has been on the New York Times bestseller list for nearly a year -- a welcome sign that Stephen King is not the only thing people read and that there is some interest in what we can do with our brains besides get into good schools because of good test scores. Smarts, in Goleman's view, are as much about understanding yourself and those around you as they are about spatial relationships. Hear what he has to say. 7 p.m. River Oaks Baptist School, 2300 Willowick. Reservations are required; for more information, call Judy Adams, 627-3687. $25.
