This week at brookline booksmith

On Friday, October 17 from 7-9pm, Neil Patrick Harris will be here at the store, signing copies of his upcoming book Choose Your Own Autobiography. Purchase of the book from Brookline Booksmith is required to enter the signing line, so please click that link, give us a call at 617 566 6660, or just drop in anytime to reserve your book and a spot in line to meet one of the premier entertainers of our time.  We are preparing a Booksmith song and dance routine for him to perform.  His agent tells us not to get our hopes up, but it's too late for that.

The Boston Book Festival is just over a month away!  The biggest literary event of the year will  embrace Copley Square October 23-25, and while the full schedule of events hasn't been released, there are already some tickets on sale. We are honored to be invited once again this year, so make sure to stop by our pop-up Booksmith to say hello and do some open-air browsing!

Around TownThe Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo, or MICE, is coming back for its fifth year!  MICE was established in 2010 to create a showcase space for artists and writers in the greater Boston area working in the field of comics.  The event is a joint project between the Boston Comics Roundtable, an independent arts collective, and the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University.  Unlike traditional comics shows, which emphasize commerce and memorabilia, MICE puts a focus on the art of making comics, with a number of workshops for children and adults, as well as panel discussions on the craft and relevance of the comics form. MICE is for anyone who wants to discover new comics, learn more about the medium of comics, or is interested in making their own. Sunday is Kids Day, featuring workshops for the young cartoonist! MICE will take place October 4 – 5 2014 at University Hall, 1815 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA. It is free and open to the public.
