Nashville's favorite bookstore-opening hero/award-winning novelist Ann Patchett will bump up her satirical cred on tonight's episode of The Colbert Report
. She'll be the first guest on the show since it went on a brief unexpected hiatus last Wednesday. (News that Colbert's mother was ill followed with speculation that he had returned home to help care for her, and Comedy Central aired reruns on Wednesday and Thursday.)
The show airs on Comedy Central at 10:30 tonight, but just in case you miss it — or if you'd like to celebrate in a more literary fashion — Parnassus Books will be hosting a watching party for tomorrow's re-airing of Patchett's appearance at 1 p.m. Can't wait!
