This should come as a surprise to no one, but Mr. Night is a big ol' Dungeons & Dragons kinda nerd. He's super-stoked about Major Tony Clunn's visit to the Borders Books & Music Brentwood location (1519 South Brentwood Boulevard; 314-918-8189), because Clunn's nonfiction book The Quest for the Lost Roman Legions has everything Mr. Night loves. Clunn spent years trying to discover the location of an important battle that took place in 9 A.D. between the invading Roman legions and the native defenders of what was then Germania. Through sheer determination, an understanding of tactics and good fortune, Clunn found the site in the late '80s; now a museum sits on the site, and the German people have an important moment in their national history preserved forever. Roman legions, Germania, a history mystery and ancient artifacts are Mr. Night's meat and potatoes. Clunn discusses and signs copies of his book at 7 p.m., and there's no admission fee. Germania rules!
