May 2011 Bookstore Events

Jimmy Fallon – Thank You Notes
Jimmy Fallon - Thank You Notes

May is truly a star studded month at our local bookstores, but not a huge one if you’re looking for high brow literature. With scheduled appearances by Brian Johnson, Shania Twain, Scott Weiland, Steve Earle, and Nikki Sixx, it might be also be a record month for musical memoirs. Here’s a list of May 2011 bookstore events that I found interesting for one reason or another.
