Writers on the Spit, a Sequim and Dungeness writers' organization, will host the free event at Rainshadow Coffee Roasting Co., 157 W. Cedar St.
Scarborough won the Nebula award for science fiction for her 1989 novel The Healer's War and has since penned nearly 40 other books, including 16 novels with the late Irish writer Anne McCaffrey.
Among their collaborations are Catalyst: A Tale of the Barque Cats and Changelings, one in the Petaybee science fiction series.
Tour of Doom, starring a heroic cat named Spam, is part of a whole new series that also includes the novel Spam Vs. the Vampire and Nine Tales O'Cats.
All three will be available at the 6:30 p.m. reading.
Listeners are invited to come at 6 p.m. for good seats and hot drinks.
After Scarborough's reading, local writers can take part in an open-mic section.
Writers of fiction, memoir and poetry are invited to put in their names to be drawn for five-minute readings.
“No political or risque content, please,” writes organizer Ruth Marcus.
