You’re going to read this one twice: The Weatherspoon Art Musem is screening How to Cook Your Life at 7 p.m., a film about “a disarming Zen priest and vegetarian chef.” Somehow it’s rated PG-13.

Still, the best event tonight may be novelist and former News & Record columnist Bill Morris speaking at Scuppernong Books at 7 p.m. Details here.
