Upcoming book signings

April 19, 2017

Come gawk at this weirdo in public!

I’ll be signing copies of The Sauropod Dinosaurs: Life in the Age of Giants at regional events the next two weekends.

This this coming Saturday, April 22, I’ll be at the Inland Empire Science Festival, which will run from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Western Science Center in Hemet, California. There will be a ton of other special exhibits and activities, too. I don’t know all of them off the top of my head, but I know that Brian Engh will have the table next to mine, so come by and get two doses of awesome paleo art.

The following Friday, April 28, I’ll be at Beer N’ Bones 2017, which runs from 7-11 PM at the Arizona Museum of Natural History in Mesa, Arizona. In addition to signing books, I’ll also be in the “Speed Dating a Scientist” thing, where small groups of people get five minutes each at a table with a researcher, to ask whatever they want. Not just paleontologists, but scientists of all stripes. That said, I know of a couple of other local paleontologists who will also be there as guests – Andy Farke and Thierra Nalley. I was at Beer N’ Bones last year and it was a blast. As you might suspect from the name, it is 21-and-over only.

I’ll have books for sale – at a healthy discount – at both events. Hopefully I’ll see you out there.

  1. *sigh* wish I could come! Poor me is stuck in Lufeng, digitizing basal sauropodomorphs


  2. Are you kidding me? The one time you are coming to my museum (the AzMNH) & I can’t go to meet you (not 21 yet). :'(

  3. Matt Wedel Says:

    If it’s any consolation, I’m only one state away and I get to Arizona fairly often, so the chances for our paths to cross in the future are good.

  4. Sadly, I can’t make it to either event. Mark Hallett is one of my favorite artists of all time, and I would love to meet him in person.

    I purchased the sauropod book last year and absolutely loved it. A great general overview of sauropodomorph paleobiology, which introduced me to information I didn’t even know about (like the alleged Aguja Formation alamosaur coprolite). I especially appreciated Mark’s humble tribute to Dougal Dixon in his feathered Pamphagia painting.

    Not sure about some of the skeletal drawing, though; they look adapted from the ones in Greg Paul’s Pearson Guide, which are fraught with Petersian errors. Which is odd, because Mark usually does his own skeletals.
