BookPeople quietly informs you that we are hosting a secret event with LEMONY SNICKET
(PSSSST! This event is a SECRET. Tell no one!)
This much-anticipated new series is, frankly, none of your business. Nor are the details of this event, which will include a secret game for which winners will receive prizes we cannot mention, a candy tree which we cannot tell you about, and a mysterious dark drink. It's also none of your business that Lemony Snicket will be here this afternoon to share his new book with us.
The speaking portion of this event is free and open to the public. Wristbands are required for the signing portion of the event and are avaiable only with the purchase of a copy of Who Could That Be at This Hour? from BookPeople. We will distribute wristbands on our second floor beginning at 3pm the day of the event.
Not that you need to know, but in a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket began his apprenticeship in an organization nobody knows about. He started by asking questions that shouldn't have been on his mind. Now he has written an account that should not be published, in four volumes that shouldn't be read.
Lemony Snicket had an unusual education and a perplexing youth and now endures a despondent adulthood. His previous accounts and research have been collected and published as books, including those in A Series of Unfortunate Events, 13 Words, and The Composer Is Dead. "Who Could That Be at This Hour?" is the first title in his new, four-volume series, All the Wrong Questions.
Big thanks to Big Top Candy Shop for sprouting the sweet seeds of our candy tree!
In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.
Thank you for supporting Lemony Snicket and your local independent bookstore!
