Beer and po-boys are a matchless combination, and so, it would seem, are books about both.

On Wednesday at 6 p.m. Maple Street Book Shop hosts a book signing replete with local sustenance, both edible and intellectual, with Michael Murphy on hand to sign and discuss Eat Dat, a guide to New Orleans food culture, and Jeremy Labadie and Argyle Wolf-Knapp around to talk about their new book, New Orleans Beer: A Hoppy History of Big Easy Brewing.

The book shop will serve Killer Poboys and beer from local breweries to get the conversation going. The event is free at the shop.

Then, next Tuesday, head to Octavia Books for more local culinary reveling, when Sam Irwin reads and signs Louisiana Crawfish: A Succulent History of the Cajun Crustacean (an awesome subject, a possibly more awesome subtitle) at 6 p.m. There's no boiled crawfish at the event, but it's likely an hour-long conversation about the salty bugs will inspire you to go out and fetch your own.
