Get Lit for the Holidays at Book Signings This Week
It's definitely too early to start putting up Christmas decorations, but it's not too early to start stocking up on presents for the holidays. And although this may just be me, a signed book is always a fantastic gift to open up on Christmas Day or after singing Ma'oz Tzur or however your family rolls during the winter festivities.
This week, there are four different book signings from four very different authors to choose from, starting tonight:
Erin Hicks Miller will be signing copies of her new book, Houston Classic Seafood, on Wednesday, November 9, at Danton's. It's the third in Miller's series on Houston classics, after Houston Classic Mexican Recipes and Houston Classic Desserts. The signing will take place from 5 to 8 p.m., and will feature happy hour pricing from Danton's bar.
