Author Alert

Dear Reader,
Here is an excerpt from an email that I received from the Wellesley Booksmith about some upcoming author events at their store and at the Wellesley Library. It looks like there are going to be some pretty fantastic authors making appearances, I am having a hard time trying to figure out how I am going to get there to see all of them. I have attended several events sponsored by the Wellesley Booksmith and have always had a great time. Getting to meet real authors is such an exciting experience, I hope you can make it there for at least one event. Here is the email:
