QUAIL RIDGE BOOKS & MUSIC–Love to serve up fishy dishes? So does local food columnist Fred Thompson. Inspired by the delectable delicacies of the sea, Thompson recently compiled The Big Book of Fish & Shellfish, the ultimate guide to preparing seafood dishes at home. Thompson will showcase his new book, swap recipes and answer questions from the crowd around 7 p.m. No charge for the discussion, but if you want to snag the book it’ll cost you $20. –Kathy Justice
