The Dust Jacket: NYC Author Events the Week of April 20th

This week has some fun things I can’t resist from noting, like the book launch of the fifth book in the Incorrigible Children series, a series that, thus far, promises to be up there with the Series of Unfortunate Events, and Bryant Park’s Birthday Bash for William Shakespeare. Hope you guys can find the right event for you from the list!
