The Getty Center hosts a conversation with Frederic Tuten and Steve Martin tonight at 7 pm. Novelist Tuten will read from his new book of interrelated short stories, Self Portraits: Fictions and actor and author Steve Martin will read from his new novel, An Object of Beauty. The event is free, but reservations are needed.

Book Soup welcomes psychiatrist and author Gary Small as he discusses and signs his book The Naked Lady Who Stood on Her Head: A Psychiatrist’s Stories of His Most Bizarre Cases. It’s an inside look at some of his more interesting cases, including patients who did naked headstands, suffered from hysterical blindness to fainting schoolgirls and self-amputations. We don’t know how he got around the patient-confidentiality thing, but it sounds like an interesting read. 7 pm.
