First Ever Drive-Through Book Signing and Breakfast on the Square

At 7am on the east side of the square in front of City Hall and Square Books Jr. we'll have tents so drivers can get a biscuit and coffee to go along with a personally inscribed copy of Big Bad Breakfast from John Currence himself.  John and his Big Bad Breakfast crew are teaming up with Square Books to start your day off right.  The most important signing of the day.

Help Square Books welcome three winning authors beginning with Jay McInerney on August 18 with his newest work Bright Precious Days. The next day we have Jacqueline Woodson (author of Brown Girl Dreaming) returning to the adult novel for the first time in 20 years with Another Brooklyn. Then on Sunday August 21st at 1pm at the Powerhouse we will host Kate DiCamillo with Raymie Nightingale.
