One ends and another begins: Nancy Pearl (in conversation with Kathleen Dunn) event tonight and Donald Driver signing tickets on sale this week.

1. Tonight is our event with Nancy Pearl in conversation with Kathleen Dunn for Pearl's first novel, George & Lizzie. Tickets are available on Brown Paper Tickets through 4 pm. Walk-up tickets will be available. Boswell closes to the general public at 6 pm. We originally advertised that the store would close at 5:30, but the crowd is manageable enough to add another half hour on. Note that on a Saturday evening, most people coming to the store are not paying attention to our posted hours, but instead are going to or coming from a restaurant or movie on the block.

Mary Cadden has a great review in USA Today: "Many fictional romances have a rom-com quality in which the characters, particularly the protagonist, are keenly self-aware. Their thoughts and dialogue are pitch perfect, reasoned and well-thought-out. Often, these stories are the first be-all, end-all true love for the destined couple. George & Lizzie is not one of those fictional romances, and that is what makes it so lovely and, in some ways, superior. George and Lizzie’s love affair, if you could call it that, is messy and, more importantly, human."

It's going to be a great event!

2. Tickets went on sale this week for Donald Driver and his new book The 3D Body Revolution. Donald Driver is the beloved receiver for the Green Bay Packers NFL franchise, where he played from 1999 until 2012. He holds the all-time team record for receptions and receiving yards. After his storied career, he also went on to win his season of Dancing with the Stars. Now, following his bestselling memoir, Driven, he presents The 3D Body Revolution: The Ultimate Workout + Nutrition Blueprint to Get Healthy and LeanTickets to this signing are $30.00 and include a copy of The 3D Body Revolution, all taxes and fees, and admission to the signing line.
