What a series of fortunate events! Neil Patrick Harris could be coming to a city near you!

The Tony-winning actor is embarking on a four-city tour to promote his upcoming book, ‘The Magic Misfits.’ Harris will make stops in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, and Woodridge, Illinois. At one special event, he’ll take part in a conversation with fellow author Lemony Snicket, who wrote ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events.’ Harris stars in the TV adaptation of Snicket’s series.

‘The Magic Misfits’ is the first in a new series written by Harris. The story is centered around Carter, a street magician who runs away to a New England town and teams up with a group of like-minded illusionists, discovering adventure and friendship while fending off greedy carnies who will steal anything in sight along the way. While Harris previously published a best-selling autobiography, this is his first venture into young adult fiction.

Harris will be launching his tour in early December, and ‘The Magic Misfits’ hits bookstores on November 21.
