January Title and Special Author Event Announcementt

Robin Sloan, author of Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore to appear

CapRadio Reads is  excited to announce a Special Author Event !  Our January title will be Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, and to herald the official launch of CapRadio Reads, the book's author, Robin Sloan, will be in our Community Room to discuss his book with our Morning Edition host Donna Apidone. Our first Authors Evening will be held Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 6:30 PM. 
"In a time when actual books are filling up tag-sale dollar boxes, along with VHS tapes and old beepers, Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore reminds us that there is an intimate, adventurous joy in the palpable papery things called novels, and in the warm little secret societies we used to call 'bookstores'.  Robin Sloan's novel is delightfully funny, provacative, deft and even thrilling. And for reasons more than just nostalgia, I could not stop turning the actual pages"  - John Hodgman
