Louis Bayard

When: Sat., Nov. 19, 7-9 p.m. 2011

Elizabethan England and modern Washington, DC are the twin chronological suns revolving around School of Night, the latest historical fiction by Louis Bayard. In the past, an intellectual known as "England's Galileo" ponders gravity, theology, politics, and magic; in the present, a disgraced scholar and a mysterious woman unravel the legacy of a lost love letter and a modern-day murder plot. Bayard appears on Saturday, Nov. 19, at Books Inc. (1344 Park St., Alameda). 7 p.m., free. 510-522-2226 or
