Free and Easy

By Fritz Hahn

Every Monday, the Going Out Gurus suggest ways to spend time in Washington without spending any money. Have an idea for us? Send it to events@washingtonpost.com.

Monday
Naomi Wolf at the Arlington County Public Library
Feminist author Naomi Wolf reads from her new book, "The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot," at a public library in Shirlington, followed by a book-signing and reception.

Tuesday
Trawick Prize Winners at the Creative Partners Gallery
Works by the winners of the Trawick Prize, a juried competition for local visual artists, are on display in Bethesda until Friday. The gallery is open until 6, so you can stop by after work.

Wednesday
Bobby Parker at Woodrow Wilson Plaza
Blues guitarist Bobby Parker has been rocking the D.C. area for more than four decades, and has toured with Bo Diddley, Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry.

Thursday
Davy Rothbart at the Fall for the Book Festival
Davy Rothbart is the founder and publisher of Found magazine, a publication of letters, drawings and stories discovered in the street or saved from the trashman. As part of the week-long Fall for the Book Festival, Rothbart hosts a special "Found" exhibition at George Mason University.

Friday
The Great Punch-Out at The Library of Congress's Mary Pickford Theater
Watch rare footage of the most famous pugilists in history, including Joe Louis, Jack Dempsey, Rocky Marciano, Gene Tunney, Joe Frazier and, of course, the Greatest of All Time: Muhammad Ali.

Saturday
Walkingtown D.C.
Get to know Washington's neighborhoods, history, culture and secrets on one of 45 free walking and cycling tours. Topics include animal sculptures, the story of slavery in Adams Morgan, Congressional Cemetery and the architecture of Embassy Row.

(If you're more in the mood for a fall festival, check out the community celebrations in Clarendon, Barracks Row, Fairfax or Anacostia.)

Sunday
Crafty Bastards at Marie Reed Recreation Center
Arts and craft vendors sell everything from punk rock baby clothes to eco-friendly outfits to handmade jewelry at this annual fair.
