From a celebrated decor artiste to a titillating tabloid survivor, there's an interesting array of literary choices to consume in the city this week.

Nate Berkus will sign his beautiful coffee table book “The Things That Matter” at 6 p.m. Thursday at the J. Glenn store in Boca Park, 750 S. Rampart. Blvd. The celebrity designer has created a 336-page tome that takes a peek inside his closets and what has shaped his personal style as well as 12 other homes, from balconies to bathrooms, to explore the backbone of good taste at home.

Also on Thursday, young reader biography writer Kathleen Krull will discuss her body of work, including “The Boy on Fairfield Street: How Ted Geisel Grew Up to Become Dr. Seuss.” She will begin at 4:30 p.m. inside Enterprise Library at 25 E. Shelbourne Ave. Get there early for the book sale and signing. Call 702-507-3760 for more info.

If that doesn’t satiate your Dr. Seuss cravings, or if it stimulates your need for more of the prosaic author, Barnes & Noble located at 2191 N. Rainbow Blvd., will have a birthday party in his honor Saturday morning. Celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday with a “Hats Off to You, Dr. Seuss,” with stories, treats, crafts, games, and of course a reading or two from his works beginning at 11 a.m. Call 702-631-1775 for more info.

Across town on Saturday, gunshot survivor and tabloid target Mary Jo Buttafuoco will sign her book “Getting It Through My Thick Skull” at 1 p.m. inside the Barnes & Noble located at 2191 N. Rainbow Blvd. She allegedly came to forgive the shootist, her husband Joey’s teenage lover Amy Fisher, who spent many years in prison and followed that stint with a foray into the porn industry. Should be a fun afternoon.
