Michael Connelly to sign books in Tampa

When author Michael Connelly appeared at the Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading in November, he spoke before an enthusiastic, standing-room-only crowd — one of the biggest he's ever had, he said.

The downside of that: Copies of his terrific new novel, The Wrong Side of Goodbye, sold out so fast that many fans who had hoped to have him sign the book weren't able to buy one.

Connelly's books are bestsellers around the globe, but he lives in Tampa and wants his local fans to have another chance to meet him. So he'll be discussing and signing The Wrong Side of Goodbye, the latest book about detective Harry Bosch, starting at 2 p.m. Saturday at Barnes & Noble Tampa, 213 N Dale Mabry Highway. For admission to the signing line, a receipt for purchase of the novel from Barnes & Noble is required. For information, call (813) 871-2228.
