Heed Her Warning

Local wordsmith Perla Sarabia Johnson isn't messing around with her dangerous, morphing, epidemic-involving sci-fi so don't pass off this former media maven for a softie. In fact, Johnson even sets her thriller, Global Warning, in both her home city of Miami and her current dispatch--Big D. Can protag Dustin Jones save the world...and few humans to boot? You'll have to read the book to find out, but for an extra bonus, dish a bit with Johnson herself from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Richardson Public Library, 900 Civic Center Drive. The event is free; books will be available for purchase ($20).
Sat., May 16, 2-4 p.m., 2009
