Bookish Happenings In and Around Philadelphia: March 24 – March 30

March 24, 2014 Uncategorized 0

Fingers crossed that Tuesday does not bring yet more snow despite the current forecasts.

Even if it does snow don’t let the weather stop you from checking out some of the great author events coming up this week.

Among this week’s doings are three chances for you to catch Tom Angleberger, author of the bestselling Origami Yoda series — I only mention this since this is the first time since I started putting together this weekly listing in January that a single author has made this many multiple appearances in the region!
