Barnes & Noble Book Signing

When: Wed., April 27, 7 p.m. 2011

James Joyce set his stories in Dublin; Mark Twain had an affinity for the Mighty Mississip'; and Tim Sandlin draws from his years in Wyoming for his acclaimed GroVont novels. At 7 tonight, he'll be signing the newest of the "four-book trilogy," Lydia, at Barnes & Noble (795 Citadel Drive East, bn.com). He says he returned to literature with "a fresh set of problems" that he cathartically worked out in penning Lydia; this, after writing 11 Hollywood movie scripts that resulted in two screenplay credits and a Drew Barrymore friendship. Don't be surprised if Sandlin's inscription inside your book tonight is complimentary, as he formerly wrote for the New York Times Book Review but was fired for "excessive praise." — Eric Calder
