Danielle Fishel appears at Book Revue on Wednesday, September 10th, 2014 at 7:00 pm! The actress best known for her role as Topanga Lawrence on Boy Meets World, Danielle Fishel will speak and sign her new memoir, Normally, This Would Be Cause For Concern.
A warm and witty memoir by Danielle Fishel, the beloved star of the ’90s sitcom Boy Meets World and the eagerly anticipated spin-off, Girl Meets World.
Best known for playing Topanga Lawrence on Boy Meets World, Danielle Fishel was many a tween’s first crush and the quintessential girl-next-door for seven years as she joined 10 million viewers in their living rooms every Friday from 1993 to 2000. The real Danielle is just as entertaining and down-to-earth as the character she portrayed on her hit show. But even life for a successful actress can be messy, from disastrous auditions to dating mishaps and awkward red carpet moments.
Normally, This Would Be Cause for Concern is a fun romp through Danielle’s own imperfections and mild neuroses. It’s a book for anyone who, like Danielle, has ever tripped and fallen down a flight of stairs in a room full of people, had a romantic moment with their significant other that was ruined by horrendous gas, or taken a sexy Halloween photo without realizing there was a huge chunk of chocolate-covered strawberry in their teeth. Here is the real, imperfect Danielle, who knows that a good sense of humor and a positive attitude makes life so much more enjoyable. Even when you’ve just face-planted in front of Ben Affleck.
All books signed at Book Revue events must be purchased at Book Revue. If you purchase the book prior to the event please save your receipt. If you have purchased the book from somewhere else you can still get your book signed, we just ask that you make a purchase in our store of equal or greater value to that of the book.

Harvard Book Store welcomes multi-talented actor, writer, and musician JASON SEGEL appears at the First Parish Church on Friday September 12th at 7:00 PM for a reading and signing of his hilariously frightening middle-grade novel Nightmares! Tickets on sale online only at jasonsegel.eventbrite.com.
Nightmares! is the first book in a trilogy about a boy named Charlie and a group of kids who must face their fears to save their town, co-written with New York Times bestselling author Kirsten Miller.
Sleeping has never been so scary. And now waking up is even worse!
Charlie Laird has several problems.
1. His dad married a woman he is sure moonlights as a witch.
2. He had to move into her purple mansion, which is NOT a place you want to find yourself after dark.
3. He can’t remember the last time sleeping wasn’t a nightmarish prospect. Like even a nap.
What Charlie doesn’t know is that his problems are about to get a whole lot more real. Nightmares can ruin a good night’s sleep, but when they start slipping out of your dreams and into the waking world—that’s a line that should never be crossed.
And when your worst nightmares start to come true . . . well, that’s something only Charlie can face. And he’s going to need all the help he can get, or it might just be lights-out for Charlie Laird. For good.
