Did you know jovial weatherman Al Roker has co-authored two murder mysteries? Neither did I. Cookbooks, sure; murder mysteries, not so much. Nonetheless, he’ll be at the Borders at Preston and Royal at 7 o’clock this evening to sign copies of and read from The Midnight Show Murders, which is a sequel to The Morning Show Murders.
What’s got me more excited is the news that ESPN’s Bill “The Sports Guy” Simmons will be at the same store on Dec. 11 to sign copies of The Book of Basketball. If you’ve never heard of Simmons, just know that he has a rabid fan base devoted to his blend of sports writing and pop-culture commentary. The crowds will be huge that day; you’ve been warned.
