Lauren Conrad is Coming for a Signing at Boswell. Yes, Boswell! Mark Your Calendars for Wednesday, June 12, 7 pm.

We've still got plenty of spring events to go, but I'm already booking summer and fall. For summer, the touring authors are in place, and we're filling things in with locals, and folks heading over from Chicago, Milwaukee, and sometimes Minneapolis and St. Paul. But we're particularly excited about some of the folks who are leaving us a bit starry eyed. I've already written about David Sedaris (coming Sunday, May 26, 2 pm) and I'll be writing shortly about Jim Gaffigan (Saturday, June 15, 7 pm, the best Father's Day present ever), but today I'm writing for the gals. Yes, Lauren Conrad is coming to Boswell for a signing on Wednesday, June 12, at 7 pm for her novel Infamous, which goes on sale June 11.

Let's get to all the details you want to know. The $20 ticket includes a copy of her new novel Infamous.. That's the price with tax for Wisconsin residents, so the ticket will be listed online at $18.94.

You can buy your ticket here.

We are co-sponsoring this event with Kohls, who features Lauren Conrad's "LC Lauren Conrad for Kohls" collection at their stores.Here's what the folks at Kohls have to say about the line.

"LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s delivers a contemporary, feminine collection of clothing, shoes and accessories for the fashion-conscious young woman. LC Lauren Conrad clothing is inspired by both breezy, beach looks and style staples. The collection incorporates delicate details like lace and ruffles with tailored, updated classics to offer you an entire wardrobe of fun and flirty pieces for any occasion."

Though a lot of readers outside the Milwaukee market don't know this, Kohl's is based in metro Milwaukee, headquarted in nearby Menomonee Falls.

In addition, we are donating $2 of every ticket to a charity that is dear to both Kohl's and Boswell's heart, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

Here's a little more about Infamous:
"Filming for season two of The Fame Game has begun, and star Madison Parker is doing something she never thought she’d do: avoiding the PopTV cameras. She knows Trevor will come groveling, and that she’ll go back to the show eventually—but on her terms. Fame can turn a girl into a pawn, and Madison knows that’s not the life she wants. Fame can turn a girl into a target, too, something her Fame Game costars are quickly learning. Up-and-coming actress Carmen is trying to figure out who’s feeding gossip about her to the press, and all signs point to someone from her inner circle.

"Meanwhile, the tabloids have dubbed Kate 'The Boring One,' but if she’s so boring, why is she the one with the boyfriend and a stalker? Help comes from an unexpected place as Madison gives Kate pointers about how to work the reality-TV system. But will Kate take the advice too far? As the girls’ careers heat up, so do their love lives, and they each discover that chasing their dreams almost always comes at a price."

And here is some more information about Lauren Conrad:
