Midweek is often a great time for readings and lectures. Some selections:

* Michael Chabon reads from his highly-recommended new essay collection, Manhood for Amateurs: The Pleasures and Regrets of a Husband, Father, and Son, at Harold Washington Library.

* Former Reader staff writer Steve Bogira, who authored a recent cover story on White Sox no-hitters, discusses Courtroom 302: A Year Behind the Scenes in an American Criminal Courthouse at Roosevelt University; here's a great Bogira piece from 2005.

* Reader contributor Kari Lydersen, author of this week's cover story on cabbie-directed violence, discusses Revolt on Goose Island: The Chicago Factory Takeover, and What It Says About the Economic Crisis at 57th Street Books.

* Joe Meno reads and takes part in a discussion at Literacy Chicago.

* New Orleans Times-Picayune columnist Chris Rose chats with fiction-writing chair Randy Albers at Columbia College as part of Creative Nonfiction Week.

* Trib columnist Clarence Page discusses the topic "The Age of Obama and Its Postracial Promise" at Northwestern.

* Novelist Chris Abani reads at Northwestern; more on Abani here.
