WILMINGTON -- Bartleby’s Books, 17 West Main St., is hosting two well-known authors on Thanksgiving Weekend.

Author and dog expert Jon Katz returns to Bartleby’s on Friday at 1 p.m., to support his first collection of short stories, "Dancing Dog."

No one brings to life the remarkable bond between humans and their dogs like New York Times bestselling author Katz. He has warmed spirits with enchanting tales and keen observations of his animal menagerie-the dogs, sheep, chickens and other residents of Bedlam Farm. Now, Katz is back with what he does best in his first collection of short stories, "Dancing Dogs."

The creatures in "Dancing Dogs" are genuinely inspiring and utterly memorable. Katz will be on-hand to share the latest news from his home base at Bedlam Farm and swap dog stories with friends and fans.

Then, Archer Mayor comes to Bartleby’s on Saturday at 3 p.m., armed with copies of his latest Joe Gunther mystery, "Paradise City."

In "Paradise City," detective Joe Gunther and his team at the Vermont Bureau of Investigation are on the trail of a crime ring that leads them from Vermont to Boston and Northampton, Mass, and back again.
