On October 7, Reading Under the Influence will celebrate Spike Jonze’s upcoming film adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s 1963 classic “Where the Wild Things Are,” plus this month’s release of “The Wild Things,” a novelization of the film by Dave Eggers. At RUI’s traditional Sheffield’s Wine and Beer Garden home, readings will be done by Columbia College professor Devon Polderman, local writer John Flaherty and RUI regulars Rob Duffer and Jesse Jordan. “What happens is two rounds of people reading original work, followed by two more readings from ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ and ‘The Wild Things’ novelization, then more original work and trivia,” says Julia Borcherts, co-founder and co-host of RUI. “We all read it [Where the Wild Things Are] as a kid,” she continues. “It’s a point of reference for us.”
