Author Peter Johnson signs his new book The Amazing Adventures of John Smith, Jr. AKA Houdini at Friendly Neighborhood Comics on Saturday Feb. 4th, from Noon until 2pm.

Houdini chronicles his life as he and his friends start a leaf-raking business, befriend Old Man Jackson, a Vietnam War veteran with a seriously intimidating dog, and get even with the neighborhood bully, Angel.

No matter what, Houdini and his friends rely on one another to figure out how to do the right thing. And Houdini discovers that writing and thinking about his friends and family lets him get to know them in completely new ways.

Peter Johnson is the critically acclaimed author of several collections of poetry, short stories, and novels, including two young adult novels: Loserville and What Happened, a Paterson Prize winner that ALA Booklist called the “most gorgeously written YA of 2007.” Johnson is the recipient of two creative writing awards from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts and a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. He teaches creative writing and children’s literature at Providence College.
