APRIL 4

‘Professionals’ makes its debut

Schuler Books & Music gives readers the chance to meet author Owen Laukkanen tonight. An alumnus of the University of British Columbia's Creative Writing BFA program, Laukkanen spent three years reporting for a poker website, traveling from plush casinos to seedy cardrooms. Laukkanen will be discussing his work and signing copies of his book, “The Professionals,” the story of four recent college graduates plotting the ultimate kidnapping. To deal with their frustration with a collapsing economy and a bad job market, the group decides to target stockbrokers, hedge fund managers and bank vice presidents. Thomas Perry, author of “The Butcher’s Boy” and “The Informant,” called it “a spectacular debut novel written with intelligence, toughness, and heart. Owen Laukkanen is a writer to watch.” 7 p.m. FREE. Schuler Books & Music, 1982 Grand River Ave., Okemos. (517) 349-8840. www.schulerbooks.com.

A birthday party for the Bard

When thinking of April, most might immediately relate the month to spring and gardening. However, the Old Town Poets could not overlook poet and playwright William Shakespeare, who was baptized on April 26, 1564. On Wednesday, April 11, the Old Town Poets host Shakespeare's Birthday Party, an evening of tasty "bites and bits" of Shakespearian poetry and prose. The celebration is an open mic, limited to the first 14 participants to sign up. Those interested in performing — either as an actor or a poet — must sign up to identify which speech, sonnet or scene he or she wishes to present. There will be free refreshments and parking on the street and in the lot at the intersection of Turner St. and Grand River Ave. 7:30 p.m. Suggested donation: $5, $3 for students. Creole Gallery, 1218 Turner St., Old Town Lansing. (517) 267-0410. stokesly@msu.edu.
