Audrey Niffenegger, the New York Times bestselling author of The Time Traveler’s Wife, reads from and signs her new book, The Night Bookmobile, her first graphic novel.

The Night Bookmobile tells the story of a wistful woman who one night encounters a mysterious disappearing library on wheels that contains every book she has ever read. Seeing her history and most intimate self in this library, she embarks on a search for the bookmobile.

The Night Bookmobile is a haunting tale of both transcendence and the passion for books, and features Niffenegger’s evocative full-color pen-and-ink work.
