Frosty. Forget Rudolph. Forget Santa. The next generation holiday hero is small, dark, and flammable. Now, Lemony Snicket, the bestselling author of A Series of Unfortunate Events is back with The Lump of Coal (HarperCollins, $12.99, all ages), the story of, you guess it, a lump of coal who can think, talk, and move itself around. Will this lump of coal get the holiday miracle he deserves? Or is he just going to get burned? Once again Lemony Snicket has struck gold… er… coal with his newest picture book. Is there a more charming holiday tale to behold? Probably, but Lemony Snicket has not written one. Tickets are required for this event and are available at all Books & Books locations. You will receive one (1) ticket with the purchase of one (1) copy of The Lump of Coal. Tickets are very limited. The courtyard will serve as a holding area for parents who do not wish to attend the talk and signing while their children are in the event. To join the signing line you must have a ticket. With your ticket you are allowed to get one (1) book by Lemony Snicket signed. This book must be new."
Hope to see you all there!
