Jim Knows

Dallas Observer columnist Jim Schutze will speak Wednesday at the Lakewood Library on "Pictures I have of Laura Miller that could get her in a whole lot of trouble." Schutze lied to the Lakewood Library Friends, hosts of the event, and said he would be speaking on the Dallas mayoral race, because he knew if he told them about the pictures they wouldn't let him in. That's why you may see a sign in front of the library advertising a different topic. Schutze will be speaking (really, not a joke) at 7 p.m. The library is at 6121 Worth St. at Abrams Road. Lakewood Library Friends can get in for $10 and non-members for $15, which means that Schutze will probably be speaking to himself. Hors d'oeuvres at 6 p.m., if you can believe that. Fancy! For more information, call 214-670-1376. If he chickens out on the photos, he will talk about the mayoral candidates. You have been warned.
Wed., April 18, 7 p.m.
