My last author event of 2011 is this Tuesday night at the George and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Library in The Woodlands, Texas. So if you know anyone who lives in that part of the world, please let ’em know!

I’ll be giving a presentation called — that is, I’ll be telling a bunch of stories that I collectively call — “My Books Go Into Libraries (But They Come From There, Too).” If you’re the kind of person who thinks that sufficiently funding libraries should be a bipartisan no-brainer, I think you’ll like it. (And if you’re not, I’d welcome the opportunity to try to change your mind.)

I’ll also read a profile from Can I See Your I.D.?, answer questions, sign books, and — with the most minimal of arm-twisting — read Shark Vs. Train. You don’t even have to go “GRRRRR!” and “CHUGRRR-CHUG!” along with the kids, but you’ll probably want to.
