Austin Kleon Signs Steal Like an Artist at Changing Hands Bookstore Tonight

The Internet has changed a lot of the ways we do business. You can pay bills online, buy cars online, meet friends online, and maybe, if you're lucky, live out your dream job online.

Author and artist Austin Kleon believes he owes his career to the web. Across blogs and social media, he's found his calling, a following, a few new jobs, and two book deals.

Kleon will be at Changing Hands Bookstore tonight, Thursday, April 26, signing his most recent release Steal Like an Artist, as well as Newspaper Blackout, his poetry-turned-visual art collection.

We spoke with Kleon midway through his first big book tour, "Steal Across America."
