I may have sold myself a little too well

My event at Books & Books in Miami is now officially listed on their Web site:

Winston Breen finds puzzles everywhere, even on pizzas, and solving them is what he does best. But when his sister uncovers mysterious wooden strips with words and letters that even Winston can’t figure out, the entire family is obsessed. It turns out the strips are part of a scavenger hunt that a town patriarch set up for his children. If all four sets are put together, they will lead to a ring worth thousands of dollars. Chock full of puzzles to solve, The Puzzling World of Winston Breen (Putnam, $16.99, 9-12 years) by puzzling master Eric Berlin will keep readers challenged right to the end.

This morning, Eric, who creates puzzles for all ages, from kids (Nickelodeon’s Fun Puzzles and Games) to adults (his crosswords appear often in the New York Times) will be creating the puzzling event of the century in honor of Books & Books 25th anniversary. Join us a test your puzzling skills.

I guess I have some work to do.

    The first clue in your puzzling event involves the missing “for” in the last line of their description, right?

    Well, the century is young yet.

    Darn, need to book flights to Miami urgently if I am not to miss that!

    I thought the one at Eureka was going to be the puzzling event of the century. Now I’m not sure if it’s even worth going. :-)
