Here are some events from the next two weeks.

Thursday, December 4 – 7:30 PM
Marcus Ewert, Rex Ray – Ten Thousand Dresses “Every evening Bailey dreams of wearing magical dresses — dresses made of flowers, and mirrors, and more — but his family tells him that boys shouldn’t think about dresses at all. Find out how Bailey triumphs in this touching book about being true to yourself.” At Books Inc. – The Castro, 2275 Market Street, San Francisco

Thursday, December 4 – 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Susan Urquhart-Brown, Elisa Kleven, Marissa Moss, and Daniel San Souci – signing books during the Montclair Village Holiday Stroll at A Great Good Place for Books, 6120 LaSalle Avenue, Oakland.

Friday, December 5 – 7:30 PM
Dan Piraro (aka the cartoonist Bizarro) – talk, slideshow & booksigning for Bizarro Buccaneers: Nuttin’ But Pirate Cartoons. It’s just that – a collection for both wannabe plunderers and scurvy walkin’ plankwalkers! Brilliant and in full color, as well as a perfect stocking stuffer (hint-hint), its captain is one Bizarro, a cartoonist whose work we’ve spied in that local broadsheet, the San Francisco Chronicle. Don’t miss this special event, in which Bizarro will screen lantern slides, deliver a rogue-ish speech, and sign his name on the spot. . . . Sail ho me squiffy men! At The Booksmith

Saturday, December 6 – 2:00 PM
Dan Piraro – Bizarro Buccaneers. Argh, matey! The creator of “Bizarro,” voted Best Single-Panel Cartoon by the National Cartoonists Society 3 years in a row!

Saturday, December 6 – 10:00 AM
Ben Boos – Swords: An Artist’s Devotion A “meet and greet” signing, just in time for the holidays! Swords is the perfect gift for all of the young knights in your lives.

Saturday, December 6 – 3:00 PM
Ben Boos – Swords: An Artist’s Devotion By the afternoon Ben has moved on to Sebastopol, but check with the stores as the Copperfield’s Books web site doesn’t say which Sebastopol store!
