Join children's author Mo Willems for a special reading and signing event. To ensure that everyone has the opportunity to have their books autographed in an orderly fashion, we will be distributing signing line numbers and calling attendees to line up in small groups. Line numbers will be distributed at the book purchasing table at the event, but if you purchase or preorder a Mo Willems book in-store or through our website prior to the event, you can receive your line number early!
If you waited in line for his mobbed appearance at the Southern Festival of Books, don't take that as an idle threat. And by the way, the coming events roster over the next few months at Parnassus looks insane. How's this for a list of visiting authors (some in conjunction with Humanities Tennessee's Salon@615 series): Adriana Trigiani, RJ Smith, Alice Randall, Delia Ephron, Holly Tucker, Gregg Allman, Sissy Spacek (!), Colin Powell (!!), Richard Ford (!!!) — and in November, Room author Emma Donoghue? Watch Country Life for details about these and other events.
