Here’s the deal, loyal bookworms: Joseph-Beth is working to get over its recent Chapter 11 filing. They’ve been a great bookstore for the literary community in Lexington, but they also deserve our love with all they’ve done for Louisville authors. Fantasy veteran Michael Williams has just started a regional tour for his new novel, and he’ll be reading and signing at Joseph-Beth on Tuesday night. “Trajan’s Arch” deals in metafiction, and it touches as much on the character of fantasy writers as on their worlds of wonder. If you don’t want to head east for this particular evening, there’ll be other, closer stops to catch up with this contributor to the “Dragonlance” series, including U of L’s Ekstrom Library (Dec. 7), Destination Booksellers (Dec. 8) and A Reader’s Corner (Dec. 9). —T.E.
