Music, literature and politics converge this week, so engage your intellectual side at these events.

  • See New York Times columnist Paul Krugman at Politics and Prose at a book signing event Wednesday. Krugman will discuss his novel “End This Depression Now!” The free 7 p.m. event is open to the public.
