LIT*
Stacy O’Brien was working as a biologist at Caltech when an injured baby barn owl was brought in. The little owl would never be strong enough to survive in the wild alone, so O’Brien takes the owl in, giving her an opportunity to study the animal in-depth. But Wesley the owl teaches the biologist a few things about life and living, too. O’Brien discusses and signs Wesley the Owl: The Remarkable Love Story of an Owl and His Girl at Vroman’s in Pasadena tonight at 7 pm.

FILM
The 1973 drive-in classic ’Gator Bait screens at The Billy Wilder Theater in Westwood tonight at 7:30. Directed by Beverly Sebastian, it’s a story of revenge, when a redneck clan is out to get a sexy swamp thing who they think killed one of their kin. The rednecks are driven deep in to the bayou and soon become the hunted. How can you go wrong with a subtitle like this: “Untamed and deadly, she ruled the swamp with a blazing gun and a luscious smile.”

SWING DANCE
Debra Watson & Her Smokin’ Aces play a free concert for shoppers and diners from 7-10 pm tonight at the Sherman Oaks Galleria. There will be free dance lessons, too, for those who can’t swing but want to give it a whirl.
