It’s no secret that Central Ohio isn’t the warmest place to be in February, so Thurber House , a nonprofit literary museum and center located in the former home of writer and cartoonist James Thurber, is bringing warmth and sunshine to Columbus through New York Times bestselling author Tim Dorsey .

On Feb. 22, Thurber House’s Evenings with Authors series welcomes Dorsey as he shares from his newest book, Pineapple Grenade, set in sunny Miami, Fla. His fifteenth novel features Serge Storms, the hero of Dorsey’s stories, and the series of events he finds himself in including getting involved with Homeland Security, umbrella drinks, a dictator, murder and madcap adventure. The reading begins at 7:30 p.m. and is at the Columbus Museum of Art . (Click here for more details.)
