MEMOIR OF MOM

The death of Susan Sontag in 2004 from a particularly lethal form of leukemia is the subject of a new book, “Swimming in a Sea of Death,” penned by the sphinx-like intellectual heavyweight’s solitary offspring, journalist David Rieff. He will discuss his quietly devastating memoir with Los Angeles Times columnist Tim Rutten as part of the Aloud at Central Library series. 7 p.m. Tue. Central Library. (213) 228-7025; www.aloudla.org
