National Public Radio and Publishers Weekly, among others, named Zapruders latest book, Come On All You Ghosts, as a top release of 2010. Hes also had gigs at top-tier writing programs such as the University of Houston, University of Massachusetts Amherst and University of California Berkeley. He reads today as part of the Poison Pen Reading Series, our local convocation of drunks and smart people who like to drink. 8:30 p.m. Poison Girl, 1641 Westheimer.
