Bestselling 'Weird Sisters' author in Charlotte

In the New York Times bestseller "The Weird Sisters," now in paperback (Berkley; $15), we meet the three Andreas sisters, siblings raised by an eccentric Shakespeare professor father whose parental advise was often delivered in iambic pentameter.

When the three return to their childhood home in Ohio to care for their sick mother, they're also attempting to escape their own personal disasters. The Washington Post calls this novel a "family drama, gracefully costumed in academic garb and lit with warm comedy."

Brown will sign books at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17, at Park Road Books, 4139 Park Road.
