The latter person is specifically Casey Corine Hutson, a Texas transplant and first-time novelist. Her first story, Kismet, details a late-20-something who finds out her boyfriend is really a domestic terrorist hell-bent on destroying her beloved Portland, Oregon. You can meet with the author and other book lovers at 8 p.m. Friday at Undergrounds Coffeehaus (2743 E. Oakland Park Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). You can also pick up a copy of Kismet and have it signed, chat up Hutson and find out what inspires her, and who knows? it could be worth something some day. Call 954-630-1900.
