KY – Dresden Files: Brief Cases Signing

Author Jim Butcher appears at Joseph-Beth Booksellers on Thursday, June 7th at 7:00 PM to sign the latest Dresden Files book BRIEF CASES.

The world of Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard, is rife with intrigue–and creatures of all supernatural stripes. And you’ll make their intimate acquaintance as Harry delves into the dark side of truth, justice, and the American way in this must-have short story collection.

From the Wild West to the bleachers at Wrigley Field, humans, zombies, incubi, and even fey royalty appear, ready to blur the line between friend and foe. In the never-before-published “Zoo Day,” Harry treads new ground as a dad, while fan-favorite characters Molly Carpenter, his onetime apprentice, White Council Warden Anastasia Luccio, and even Bigfoot stalk through the pages of more classic tales.

With twelve stories in all, Brief Cases offers both longtime fans and first-time readers tantalizing glimpses into Harry’s funny, gritty, and unforgettable realm, whetting their appetites for more to come from the wizard with a heart of gold.

KY – Mighty Jack Signing

000000000000000_bhatke_mighty-jackBen Hatke (Zita the Spacegirl, Little Robot) appears at Louisville Free Public Library on Monday, September 26, 2016 at 6:30 PM to present MIGHTY JACK! RSVP here…

Jack might be the only kid in the world who’s dreading summer. But he’s got a good reason: Summer is when his single mom takes a second job and leaves him at home to watch his autistic kid sister, Maddy. It’s a lot of responsibility, and it’s boring, too, because Maddy doesn’t talk. Ever.

But then, one day, she does talk. Maddy tells Jack in no uncertain terms to trade their mom’s car for a box of magic beans. It’s the best mistake Jack has ever made. The little garden behind his house is about to become home to tiny onion babies running amok, dangerous biting cabbages, and, in a fiery cliff-hanger at the end of this first volume: a dragon.

Ben Hatke is the author and illustrator of the New York Times-bestselling Zita the Spacegirl trilogy, the picture books Julia’s House for Lost Creatures and Nobody Likes a Goblin, and the graphic novel Little Robot. He lives and works in the Shenandoah Valley with his wife and their boisterous pack of daughters. benhatke.com
