The Dust Jacket: The Weekly List, January 19th to January 24th

Belated happy long weekend to y’all!

It’s a slow-ish week for author events in the city, but the Mysterious Book Shop seems to have thrown itself out of hibernation with three events in one week! (And, of course, there are two chances to see Greer McAllister, if one doesn’t work for you… I keep seeing that cover for The Magician’s Lie everywhere)
