Downtown Culver City is celebrating tonight with an Oktoberfest block party to mark "the end of summer" (gloomy weather and all). Music, free goodies, the chance to roam in shops and galleries, and wine and food tastings are on tap tonight from 5-9 PM.

Author Leslie Marmon Silko is onstage via ALOUD tonight at the Central Library in conversation with novelist Judith Freeman. Silko will be talking about her latest publication, The Turquoise Ledge, which ALOUD describes: "One of the most gifted and best known Native American writers today offers this highly original self-portrait, steeped in Native American storytelling traditions, that weaves together family/personal memoir with an accounting of the creatures and landscapes that inform her vision of the world." Read Silko's interview with Seattlest from yesterday, ahead of her appearance there. 7PM.
