Need Something To Do Monday?


There may not be many cabins in the city of Boise, but there is one right in the heart of downtown. And it deals more with books than bears. The Cabin regularly brings acclaimed authors and other wordy types to the City of Trees for its Readings and Conversations series.

Scott Simon, a Peabody Award-winning journalist and host of NPR's Weekend Edition, will continue the series today at the Egyptian Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Doors open an hour prior, and ticket prices range from $12 for students to $55 and can be purchased at the Egyptian's box office or via its website.

A pre-reading reception will take place at Beside Bardenay, 612 Grove St., from 6-7 p.m. A no-host bar and light hors d'oeuvres will be served, and reservations can be made by calling 208-331-8000. The cost for the reception is $20, or bring a friend and get two tickets for $30.
