The Dust Jacket: The Weekly List, March 2nd – March 8th

Another week’s worth of author events… A few that stuck out for us: My wife is excited to join the Sound of Music Fandom on Monday, and I’ve seen Dave Barry speak previously, and he was as funny in person as I had hoped from his columns. Data and Goliath, also, appeals to the strong paranoia in me!
