Editor's note: Astronaut Mark Kelly (STS-108, 121, 124, 134) did not go on a formal tour for his books Mousetronaut and Mousetronaut Goes to Mars but he has and continues to participate in a sporadic book signings.

This topic shares the events and opportunities to obtain autographed copies.

On Wednesday morning (Nov. 14, 2012), I attended a storytelling by shuttle commander Mark Kelly to 60 preschoolers at the National Air and Space Museum. Kelly read his new book, Mousetronaut, to the children who were seated on a carpet in front of the Hubble Telescope display.

After the reading Kelly answered the children's questions. Later, Kelly signed copies of his latest book in front of the museum gift shop.

With thanks to Francis French, Barnes & Noble will hold a two day Black Friday Weekend sale at its stores (stores only, not online) of author-autographed books.

Among the titles is Mark Kelly's original "Mousetronaut."

It is not clear if all the books will be available at all the stores, or if they will be randomly spread across the country, but it might be worth checking your local B&N.

I picked up one of these. After my discount, it was only $16. His signature looks rather quick (as they most likely signed hundreds, thousands of these) but it comes with a little sticker on the cover from Barnes and Noble that says it it signed.

They had several other books that were signed that I thought were quite cool. The wife bought some psychology book; I missed out on the George W. Bush book. Apparently those sold out a lot quicker than Mark Kelly's!

Anyone else pick up Moustronaut?

Yup, I picked up one for my 5-year-old son. Also got a signed copy of the Hillary Clinton book. Lots of good titles in my store. A great idea by B&N.
