GOOD Magazine and Paramount Vantage Films are hosting an advanced screening of Son of Rambow. It’s a British comedy about a boy living in seclusion among a religious sect that doesn’t allow movies or TV. But when the kid sees his first movie – a pirated copy of Rambo: First Blood, his imagination is blown wide open. Seating is first come, first-served and you must RSVP by 5:30 pm today.

An event at the Mark Taper Forum tonight caught our eye: “Who Speaks for Islam? What a Billion Muslims Really Think.” Author Dalia Mogahed will present the findings on a book she co-authored with John Esposito of Georgetown University – basically a Gallup poll of the Muslim world. It’s being billed as “the first-ever data-based analysis of the points of view of more than 90% of the global Muslim community, spanning 40 countries."

7:30 pm // Mark Taper Forum @ the Los Angeles Public Library // South Flower and West Fifth streets // Free with reservations.

Author Rory Freedman has ways to make you skinny, and she wrote them down in her cookbook, Skinny Bitch in the Kitch.. Her book talk and signing are sponsored by PETA and Bruins for Animals, so it’s no wonder her press release reads, [her book] “makes no bones about the fact that meat is responsible for causing extreme animal suffering and making humans fat and sick.” Tal Ronnen of VegAdvantage will be whipping up vegan fare from Freedman’s book

7 pm // The Grand Salon @ Kerckhoff Hall // UCLA // Free.
