C.D.B. Bryan is a fence straddler on UFOs. Impressed by the sincerity of witnesses, he’d like to believe the far-out tales he records in his book Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind: Alien Abduction, UFOs, and the Conference at M.I.T. But it strains credulity when one woman reports that her E.T. abductors asked to try on her high-heeled shoes. Or when a Roper poll estimates that 3.7 million Americans have, knowingly or not, been beamed aboard flying saucers. Assuming he doesn’t get snatched himself, Byran will read from his book and autograph copies at 7:30 p.m. at Borders, 11301 Rockville Pike, Rockville. FREE. (301) 816-1067. (Greg Kitsock)
