Cory Doctorow Book Signing for Little Brother in Naperville

Cory Doctorow doing a reading from "Little Brother"Last week while perusing the web (no doubt wasting time and/or avoiding something important), I decided to checkout the website of a great little indie bookstore named Anderson’s Bookshop which is located in our town.

They tend to have a good rotation of authors come in for readings and book signings. I was very surprised when I discovered that Cory Doctorow would be in town to do a reading and signing of his newest book, Little Brother (and yes that link will take you to the full version to download for free ~ and yes it’s legal ~ you can buy it or download it).

For those not familiar (and what the hell is wrong with you), Cory is one of my favorite authors and is famous for his activism in the areas or Digital Rights Management and Copyrights (hence being able to download his books for your use) and also co-editing one of the most popular blogs around: BoingBoing.net.

It was nice to meet someone that you’ve read for years and shake their hand. There was a nice sized crowd tonight and Cory made sure to take time to talk to everyone who came to see him. Kinda fun that this all happened less than 5 minutes from my house.

And who said cool things don’t happen in the suburbs? :)

    He needs to come to Portland and do a reading at Powells. I’d totally be there, filming, man-crushing all over him. :-)
