Boswell Books has a robust lineup of author events in April. Register in advance for the events as many recent talks have been at capacity! For more info on any of these events, visit Boswell’s homepage.

Here’s what’s coming up:

April 18 – Peng Shepherd, author of Cartographers in conversation with Jim Higgins.

In conversation with Cheryl Bailey, Dean of the Nursing School at Mount Mary and cosponsored by ABCD: After Breast Cancer Diagnosis.

April 25 – Jeff Deutsch, author of In Praise of Good Bookstores.

April 29 – Jennifer Close, author of Marrying the Ketchups – A family novel about a restaurant in Oak Park.

In conversation with Lauren Fox – Another staff favorite and a top pick for Spring. Come hear this inspiring delightful story.

May 4 – Michelle Huneven, author of Search

In conversation with Daneil Goldin and Lisa Baudoin of Books & Company. A unique book with an odd premise that’s receiving praise from booksellers and critics across the country.

May 6 – Juneau Black (Sharon Nagel and Jocelyn Cole), authors of Mirror Lake in conversation with Erica Ruth Neubauer.

This is REALLY a Don’t Miss event! This cozy series was conceived at the front desk of Boswells while the two authors were pricing finger puppets. After self-publishing three installments, the series was bought by the Vintage Crime imprint of Penguin Random House. The first book hit several regional bestseller lists. The second book was reviewed in The New York Times. This will be Boswells final event in our 13th anniversary celebration.
