bestselling author of The Mysterious Benedict Society
series. He comes to Houston to read from his newest book in the series,The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict

review, “gives readers a reason to fall in love with the series all over again…[with] adventures, danger, cleverness, dry wit, and good-hearted characters at the center of the action. . . . Two hundred years after Dickens’ birth, this orphan story plays notes in a familiar key but creates its own memorable tune.”
