Barry Saunders 

When: Wed., Dec. 9, 7 p.m. 2015


REGULATOR BOOKSHOP—In more than two decades as a columnist for the News & Observer, Barry Saunders has earned a reputation for telling it like it is with equal parts humor and outrage. Like many critics, this snazzy-hatted purveyor of righteous rants can come off as either the voice of reason or a bit of a scold, depending on your point of view. In recent years, he's gone off on Beyoncé for her lack of sartorial modesty and cheekily chided Ben Carson for blinking "unnervingly slowly." His new book, And the Horse You Rode in On, Saunders!, is a compendium of N&O columns from 1999 to 2005. If you're clamoring to relive Saunders' views on the news of the day circa the latter-Clinton and early-Bush administrations, this reading is for you. (But is that a time you really want to remember?) Just make sure to come attired properly, not like "some half-nekkie celebrity." 7 p.m., free, 720 Ninth St., Durham, 919-286-2700, Klein
