Town Center is going to be fan central this week with a line up which includes four best selling, beloved authors. It won't be quite as crowded as when they booked Hillary Clinton and the signing line extended to the street, but it might get close.

Harlan Coben, J.A. Jance, Dave Berry, Mary Daheim. See our previous articles by clicking the link on the author's name.

Coben and Berry are ticketed events - and you get tickets by buying their book from Third Place Books. Sorry - audio books don't count; neither do copies purchased elsewhere. If you don't plan to get your copy autographed, there's no charge to attend the event.
