The Dust Jacket: The Weekly List, October 6th to October 12th

Once, more, I look with regret at all of the many cool things I won’t get to do! (and it’s only my third week in, and I’ve already gotten lazy with the formatting!)

If I had my druthers, I’d not only get into the Alan Cummings talk and signing , I would also catch True Lies: Ripped from the Headlines! Inspired by Real Events! Scandal! Intrigue! Murder!Reading | A Night of Pen and Ink, and several of those “Special Super Week”s Events that Barnes and Noble is throwing.

Hope you, reader, have better luck than I will, catching what you would like to hear!
