The biggest name on the list of upcoming author events at Wellesley Booksmith is Philip Roth, who is launching a new book called Indignation (his 29th book). But alas, Roth isn’t slated to show up in person. He’ll be coming to the store on Sept. 16 via a Web broadcast at 8pm.
Then again, maybe Roth will show up a few days later dressed as a dragon or knight. The Booksmith has a midnight release event in the works for Sept. 19 to unveil Christopher Paolini’s Brisingr, and such events often inspire book fans to come outfitted in character. Brisingr is the latest in the young author’s popular series of dragon-themed books that includes Eragon and Eldest.
