Monday’s event pick: Sarah Vowell at BookPeople

If you’ve never enjoyed history, you’ve never read Sarah Vowell. Author and “This American Life” contributor, Vowell is giving a lesson on Revolutionary War hero Marquis de Lafayette in her newest book, “Lafayette in the Somewhat United States.”

She’ll provide an insightful and hilarious portrait of a nation’s idealism and its reality. Although the speaking portion of the event is free, you’ll need tickets for the signing of “Lafayette.”

Details: 7 p.m. Monday. Free. 603 N. Lamar Blvd. 512-472-5050, bookpeople.com.
