Tom Angleberger is one of our very favorite authors, and we can't wait to see him back in Austin. The problem is... we need your help preparing a proper welcome. You see, his latest book stars a Heidelberg Handlebar Number Seven (a very hairy and very expensive real-hair fake mustache). That's why we thought it would only be appropriate to collectively celebrate this hirsute wonder with a little mustache madness of our own.
So come one come all toBookPeople at 6PM on Wednesday, April 18th in your mustachioed best to greet Tom and hear all about his wacky and hilarious new book called Fake Mustache: How Jackie O'Rodeo and Her Wonder Horse (and Some Nerdy Guy) Saved the World.
If you couldn't make it to Tom's last visit to celebrate the release of Darth Paper Strikes Back, here's a little look back at what you missed:
What: Party to celebrate the release of the movie and of course, the books When: Friday, March 23 Time: All Lunches & Advisories Who: Anyone can sign up to attend (ONE session only) How: go to goo.gl/nMCTG to register for a session Happenings: Green screen photo booth, trivia, costume contest, Peeta's Bakery, Capital Beauty Parlor, Archery, and much, much more! Extra: Come in costume and you will be registered to win a prize!

Pandemonium, the second in the Delirium Trilogy, releases on February 28! Yeay!
If you haven't read Delirium by Lauren Oliver, you must read it NOW!
Delirium is the first book in a dystopian trilogy. "Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy. But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love." - Good Reads
If you liked The Hunger Games, you'll definitely like Delirium.
