Checked Out centers on a public library and its acquisition of a wealthy gentleman's many books, donated to the institution after his death. The catch: The donor stashed a watercolor inside one of his books, and that painting is worth a cool million. But which book? You'll have to buy Checked Out to enjoy the plot twists, but at the same time you can help out some needy animals. Tonight at 7 p.m. at Left Bank Books (399 North Euclid Avenue; 314-367-6731 or, meet the author at An Evening With Elaine Viets: Checked Out. You get face time with Viets, a copy of her new mystery -- and a portion of all proceeds benefits Animal House Cat Rescue and Adoption Center.
