Thanks, Marisha

This past Monday, Marisha Pessl read from Special Topics in Calamity Physics at our Shorewood shop. Not only is her first novel critically acclaimed (The New York Times named it one of the Ten Best of 2006), it's one of our bookseller favorites, too. Marisha gave a wonderful and dramatic reading, explained her writing process and the genesis of her first novel, and answered a slew of questions from anxious and appreciative readers.

She was also kind enough to sign books for everyone in attendance, as well as some extra copies for our customers who couldn't make it. There are only a limited quantity of these signed paperbacks. If you haven't read it yet, stop into our Mequon shop and talk with Patti or with Jim at Shorewood--their excitement will be enough to convince you to read this inventive, witty prep-school mystery. (And their great comments will help, too.)
