Cushing Memorial Library and Archives at Texas A&M University will host science fiction author George R.R.

Fans are invited to a book-signing from 4-6 p.m. on March 22 at Cushing Memorial Library, followed by a free lecture from Martin at 6:30 p.m. at Rudder Auditorium on the Texas A&M campus.

The library’s exhibit titled “Deeper than Swords” will run from March 22 through December 2013 and is free to the public. It will feature objects, editions and manuscripts from Martin’s career, including early letters and stories to his most recent writings.
