In advance of bestselling author Jasper Fforde’s appearance at the Plaza Branch on March 17, 2011, the Kansas City Public Library is giving away two first-edition hardback copies of his new book, One of Our Thursdays Is Missing, the latest installment in the Thursday Next series. The Library will give away both books via a random drawing facilitated by Twitter.
Both books will be available for pick-up by the winners at the event on March 17 (starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St.), during which time Mr. Fforde will autograph them.
