Author Brené Brown might live and work in Houston, where she is a research professor at the University of Houston, but she clearly has a love for Austin. In particular, like many of us, she holds a deep appreciation for the one and only BookPeople.

She was in town recently and stopped by the store to pick up some cards — but she ended up doing much more than that. 

In a tweet she posted late on Monday, she noted that she decided to stick around for a bit and sign copies of her books with avid fans. "Doing my part to keep Austin weird," she said in the tweet, which drew more than 500 likes.
