Cartoonists Jeffrey Brown and Judd Winick appear at the Takoma Park Library on Monday, September 26, 2016 at 7:30 PM!

Press Release:

Join us Monday, Sept. 26, at 7:30 p.m. when two kids’ comics creators present their latest books. Jeffrey Brown, known for books like Jedi Academy and Vader’s Little Princess, now turns his attention to the cave age with his new book, Lucy & Andy Neanderthal. Judd Winick, meanwhile, continues the adventures of his popular robot named HiLo in “HiLo 2: Saving the Whole Wide World.” Politics & Prose will sell books by Brown and Winick at our event, but the program is free and no purchase is required to attend.

Andy and Lucy may live 40,000 years in the past, but these Neanderthal siblings have problems—crushes, squabbles, and baby brothers— that persist today. Brown tells their story alongside nonfiction sections that serve to dispel misinformation about these human relatives.

In Winick’s sequel to Hilo, the titular heroic alien robot unexpectedly returns to Earth and human friends DJ and Gina. Then, mysterious portals pop up all over town and disgorge one terrifying creature after another. An enormous mutant chicken and a million killer vegetables are only some of the foes that Hilo, DJ, and Gina must confront in order to save their community.

MA – An Evening with Alan Cumming

000000000000000-Acumming_You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams

Press Release:

Harvard Book Store welcomes memoirist and Tony Award–winning actor ALAN CUMMING on Sunday, September 25th at 6:00 PM to discuss his latest book, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams: My Life in Stories and Pictures—a magical concoction of his mischievous, tender, whimsical, and debauched real-life adventures, told in his own words and pictures. Mr. Cumming will be joined in-conversation by WGBH’s JARED BOWEN.

About You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams:

Described by the New York Times as “a bawdy countercultural sprite” and named one of the most fun people in show business by Time magazine, Alan Cumming is a genuine quadruple threat—an internationally acclaimed, award-winning star of stage, television, and film, as well as a New York Times best-selling author whose real-life vivacity, wit, and charm shine through every page of his third book, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams. In these forty-five picture essays, Cumming recounts his real-life adventures (and often, misadventures), illustrated by his own equally entertaining photographs. From an awkward bonding session with Elizabeth Taylor to poignant stories about his family and friends to some harsh words of wisdom imparted by Oprah that make up the title of this collection, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams is as eclectic, enchanting, and alive as its author.

Tickets are available now at the link…
