Goin' Down to Dallas
This weekend is the American Library Association's Midwinter Meetup and we're gearing up for a dusty road trip east, through the sprawling heart of Texas, to Dallas. We'll be in booth #1645, and we're giving away free copies of Joe Hayes' classic tall tall, The Lovesick Skunk to anyone who makes a purchase! Authors at our booth this year include Choctaw storyteller Tim Tingle and the lucha libre lovin' author/illustrator Xavier Garza. Plus, we're spotlighting James Carlos Blake's newest novel, Country of the Bad Wolfes—a new historical novel about Mexico and Texas during the Díaz Regime. It’s already been well received by the Texas Observer and will be the lead review in the January Texas Monthly.
Here are all the details:
Friday, January 20 | 5:30p-7:30p: Choctaw author Tim Tingle, author of Crossing Bok Chitto and Saltypie, will be in our booth.
Saturday, January 21: Meet Xavier Garza, author of Lucha Libre - The Man in the Silver Mask. He'll be signing copies of his latest book, a bilingual lucha libre thriller, Maximilian & the Mystery of the Guardian Angel, a book sure to please the young adult patrons at your libraries—especially the boys.
Sunday, January 22: Tim Tingle returns to hang out in our booth!
Remember to stop by booth #1645 and say "hi." We're looking forward to seeing you!
