The reading, set for 7 p.m. Saturday, is part of Port Townsend's monthly Gallery Walk.
It will be held at Wynwoods Gallery & Bead Studio, 940 Water St.
Spam lives in a town like Port Townsend, and his haunts include local businesses with the same names as iconic PT fixtures — such as Elevated Ice Cream and Sea J's Cafe, where he stalks vampires (Spam Vs. the Vampire) and tries to rescue staff members from being turned into zombies (The Tour Bus of Doom).
Scarborough originally wrote Spam Vs. the Vampire as a satirical answer to the popular Twilight books.
“I was telling the girls at Sea J's about the zombie book I was writing, and they all wanted to be zombies, so they are,” Scarborough said.
Both Elevated and Sea J's are carrying The Tour Bus of Doom this summer and have sold out of the first batch.
The third story in the Spam series is Father Christmas, Spam's first Christmas.
All proceeds from Father Christmas, both paper copies and e-books, are being donated to the Jefferson County Humane Society shelter.
Paper copies of the books will be available for sale at the event. All three stories are family-friendly, suitable for both adults and older kids.
Scarborough won the Nebula Award for The Healer's War, published in 1989.
