Former Saturday Night Live “Weekend Update” host and legendary stand-up Colin Quinn has noticed a trend during his decades on the road; America’s increasing political correctness and sensitivity has us tiptoeing around the subjects of race and ethnicity.

This event will take place at Brookline Booksmith and requires tickets. Tickets are available online now. Tickets are $26 and include one copy of The Coloring Book. A free signing will follow the reading.

Chuck Palahniuk speaks on Tuesday, May 26, 2015 at 7:30 PM! Presented by Books & Books in collaboration with The Center for Writing & Literature at Miami Dade College and Tate’s Comics. RSVP on Facebook!
You must purchase a voucher ($33) at Books & Books to attend this event or online at the link. In exchange for your purchase of this voucher you will receive (1) one autographed copy of MAKE SOMETHING UP: STORIES YOU CAN’T UNREAD plus a signed copy of the first comic edition of FIGHT CLUB 2.
The voucher also serves as your entry for (1) one person to Chuck Palahniuk’s talk on May 26.
Make Something Up will be published on May 26, so this is the launch event! Please plan to claim your copy of the books at the event on May 26. All books will have then been pre-signed by Chuck. There will be no book signing to follow his talk.
You must show your voucher and attached receipt to claim your book and entrance to the event, so if you purchase one in the store please remember to bring it with you that day. Books & Books is NOT responsible for lost or stolen vouchers. For online orders, your voucher will be waiting for you at the event.
Representing work that spans several years, Make Something Up is a compilation of 21 stories and one novella (some previously published, some not) that will disturb and delight. The absurdity of both life and death are on full display; in “Zombies,” the best and brightest of a high school prep school become tragically addicted to the latest drug craze: electric shocks from cardiac defibrillators. In “Knock, Knock,” a son hopes to tell one last off-color joke to a father in his final moments, while in “Tunnel of Love,” a massage therapist runs the curious practice of providing ‘relief’ to dying clients. And in “Expedition,” fans will be thrilled to find to see a side of Tyler Durden never seen before in a precusor story to Fight Club. Funny, caustic, bizarre, poignant; these stories represent everything readers have come to love and expect from Chuck Palahniuk.

Who is Neal Adams? Neal Adams is a towering figure in the world of comic book creation and art. Neal has had legendary ‘runs’ on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, and Deadman. Adams rescued Batman from the campy nostalgia of the television show, and re-fitted him in his present incarnation as an “Avenger of the Night.” When people say ‘modern Batman,’ they mean Neal Adams’ Batman. His run on Batman led directly to the new, more realistic incarnation in “Batman Returns” movie, which featured the character he created, Ra’s Al Ghul. Neal just did an 8 page story in Batman Black & White #1. Don’t miss out on picking one up at the store and having Neal sign it.
Neal is currently working on a Superman Series for DC Comics.
