Chabon and Eugenides To Sign Books This Month
Two Pulitzer Prize winners will be in the MidSouth this month to sign books. Michael Chabon, whose Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay won the prestigious award in 2001, and Jeffery Eugenides, winner for Middlesex in 2003, will both be at Square Books in Oxford. Chabon will be signing his works on Tuesday, October 11, at 5pm. Chabon, who does not have a new work out, will be in town to speak as a part of the University of Mississippi's English Department Lecture Series, according to Square Book's website. Eugenides will be here Friday, October 28th to sign his latest novel, The Marriage Plot, which will be released next Tuesday. The author will speak at Bondurant Hall at 4:30, with signing at Off Square Books at 5:30. I have to admit to a giddy excitement to see both of these guys, whose works are some of my favorites. I will give a full report after each event, hopefully with pictures.
