On your radar: Wyclef Jean signing books, and Adam Ant at the Hard Rock

Wyclef Jean Book Signing: The former Fugee will be in Tampa to sign his book Purpose: An Immigrant's Story. The event will feature an interview between the top-selling musician — and former presidential candidate in his native Haiti — and Tampa Bay Times pop critic Sean Daly. You can drop by to see Jean without buying a book, but for a chance to meet him your best bet is to buy the book and have it signed. It's at 7 p.m. at Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church, 3501 San Jose St., Tampa. Free. (813) 253-2638.

Our Town Conversations: Host Carol Mickett leads this monthly series of talks, featuring Beth Houghton and Scott Wagman, married community leaders who have served on the boards of community organizations like Great Explorations, Lawyers for Literacy, American Stage Theater and the Free Clinic. Together they co-founded Scott Therapy Centers of Clearwater. Talk is at 6:30 p.m. at Dali Museum in St. Petersburg. $5, reservations required. (727) 823-3767.

Adam Ant: The indie/new wave rocker formed the punk group Adam and the Ants in the late '70s, then made a comeback in the early '90s on the pop/alternative rock scene. See him at 9 p.m. at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, 5223 N Orient Road, Tampa. $25. (813) 627-7625.

To watch

Series premiere; Last Resort, 8 p.m., ABC A nuclear submarine refuses to bomb Pakistan without confirmed orders, except that sub crews are supposed to follow last-known orders to completion. It's like they made the movie Crimson Tide a series, but without Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman.

Season premiere; The Big Bang Theory, 8 p.m., CBS: We have yet to understand how all these girls put up with the nerdy tics all these guys have. Well, Howard's in space, so he's got those points, but still …

Series premiere; Elementary, 10 p.m., CBS: Sherlock Holmes is a drug addict in New York and Watson is an Asian-American woman. That's actually an inventive spin on this one.
