One thing that every person who enjoys literature should make it a point to do at least once is attend a book signing. Having the chance to look and speak directly with an author about their journey through prose is an insightful and interesting experience. And Dallasites have the opportunity to see exactly what I am talking about (and agree with me) when novelist Mary Alice Monroe stops at the Barnes and Noble Lincoln Park on Saturday at 2 p.m. This New York Times best-selling author will be on hand to discuss and sign copies of her most recent book, The Butterflys Daughter. This book chronicles the story of four very different women as they embark on a journey that follows the great migration of Monarch butterflies as the move across the United States into Mexico. If nothing else, it should make for one interesting read. For more information, call 214-739-1124.
