The world’s leading organization for the protection of bats -- the winged, nocturnal kind -- will be a beneficiary of an unusual event at Wellesley Booksmith this Friday.

Brian Lies (cq), author of an illustrated children’s book, "Bats at the Beach," will arrive at the Washington Street bookstore at 1 p.m. in his eye-catching “batsmobile,” with its 12-foot wingspan.

Lies will be signing books, reading excerpts, and leading games. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of books will go to the Bats Conservation International, a 25-year-old Texas-based organization.
