GA – An Evening with Wallace Shawn

Wallace Shawn (The Princess Bride, My Dinner with Andre, Toy Story) appears in conversation with local playwright and professor Margaret Baldwin at Horizon Theatre on Thursday, August 31st at 7:00 PM to read and discuss Night Thoughts. This is a ticketed event. Tickets include a signed copy of the book from A Cappella Books.

Although he is guided and inspired by the people he respects, and despite the insufficiency of his knowledge and experience—an insufficiency shared by most (or all) other humans, Wallace Shawn can’t see any real alternative to trying to figure out his own answers to the most essential questions about the world he lives in.

Having recently passed the age of seventy, before which he found it difficult to piece together more than a few fragments of understanding, Shawn would like to pass on anything he’s learned before death or dementia close down the brief window available to him, but he may not be ready yet.

MI – Darryl “DMC” McDaniels Signing

Darryl “DMC” McDaniels from the iconic Rap group Run-DMC visits Source Booksellers on Friday, August 25, 2017 at 6:00 PM to discuss his new book “Ten Ways Not to Commit Suicide.”

Darryl “DMC” McDaniels had it all—public adulation, the respect of his peers, money, and celebrity status. But, it all imploded when, overwhelmed by such success at a young age, he sank into a world of depression, alcoholism, and regular thoughts of suicide. In his brutally frank memoir, TEN WAYS NOT TO COMMIT SUICIDE, McDaniels recounts his slide into emotional darkness and the ways he worked to rise out of his depression and embrace the gift of life. McDaniels’s story has particular resonance in our time, with a rising epidemic of suicide among black men. Indeed, suicide is the #3 leading cause of death among African Americans.

This event is free and open to the public.

Friday the 13th Stars Appear at Rock & Shock 2017

August 22, 2017 by  
Filed under Convention News, Horror, Massachusetts, Movies

Press Release:

Rock and Shock family, it’s time for more guest announcements! With Rock and Shock starting on a Friday the 13th, you know we had to celebrate by bringing in some fan favorite friends and fiends from the film franchise.

First up is one of our most requested campers, someone who is coming to Rock and Shock for the very first time, AMY STEEL! As Ginny in Friday the 13th Part 2, Amy played the first character to survive the wrath of Jason Voorhees. She is exceptionally kind and welcoming to her fans, and we’re very excited to give you a chance to meet her.

Speaking of fan friendly, we’re happy to welcome back DEREK MEARS! Memorable for his work with fellow Rock and Shock attendee Adam Green as well as his many characters played under heavy prosthetics in Sleepy Hollow, Mears first endeared himself to horror fans when he took up the hockey mask in a very well received performance as Jason in the 2009 Friday the 13th reboot.

Of course, when we’re talking about Jason, KANE HODDER is the most popular man to ever play the Crystal Lake killer, and this year he is going to be participating in a very special professional photo op, brought to you by our friends at MAD MONSTER. Kane will be donning a replica of his Jason costume and makeup from Friday the 13th part VII: The New Blood! You will have the rare opportunity to have your picture taken with Kane in full costume, complete with a film accurate backdrop, printed out on 8×10 photo paper! What’s even better is that the replica has been crafted from the original specs by another Rock and Shock 2017 attendee and the director and special effects creator of part VII, the one and only JOHN CARL BUECHLER! The photo op will happen, appropriately enough, on Friday, October 13th, and tickets are limited to just 100 so you might want to get one quick when they go on sale Tuesday, August 22nd (Note: each ticket is $160, which includes admission to the convention–but not the concerts–on Friday, and you can have up to two people in the photo). This will be a Friday the 13th weekend for the history books, and we hope you’ll be here to share it with us!
