One of my favorite parts about working in a bookstore is meeting authors, especially when they come in to sign stock. On paper, stock signings sound boring: an author, a Sharpie, and putting signed stickers on books.  In reality, stock signings are the best, especially when it's with an author whose work you admire. It's usually just the two of you, and it's a bit overwhelming sometimes!

Today, I got to meet Hervé Tullet as he signed his new book, I Am Blop, in addition to several of his other titles.  He charmed our entire store, sitting down at our children's table, taking out his pack of markers, and delving into a really colorful signing.
Booksellers were peeking around the corner because Hervé's signatures required space to dry and perhaps an events director with spatial reasoning skills (hello!).

So cool.  Get them now, before this becomes the bookseller covet-and-must-have book of the week!
