Looking for a Christmas gift for that sportsy bookworm on your list? Two authors have scheduled signings this week at non-traditional locales, i.e. not Barnes & Noble.
David Blewett will sign and discuss The Pony Trap: Escaping the 1987 SMU Football Death Penalty from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Holiday Inn formerly known as a Radisson. I’m told Blewett, who played for the Mustangs, will be joined by some of his former teammates. This is a free event, but RSVPs are requested via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meanwhile, Joe Nick Patoski will scrawl his autograph on The Dallas Cowboys: The Outrageous History of the Biggest, Loudest, Most Hated, Best Loved Football Team in America from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday at Commonwealth Couture, the vintage clothing store at 6729 Hillcrest Ave.
