AZ – Gene Simmons Signs

az-simmonsLegendary KISS co-founder Gene Simmons visits Changing Hands Bookstore on Monday October 27th at 7:00 PM to sign his manifesto for business success, based on both lucrative outside ventures and his experiences in one of the most successful rock groups of all time.

Long before he first took the stage, Gene Simmons had a clear-cut operating plan for the business of KISS. Over the past forty years, KISS has sold more than 100 million CDs and DVDs worldwide and manages 5,000 licensed merchandise items — from comic books and coffins to action figures and video games. Simmons’s lucrative ventures also include two hit reality shows, a professional sports team, a restaurant chain, and a record label. In Me, Inc., Simmons gives aspiring entrepreneurs the critical tools they need to succeed. He discusses how to build a solid business strategy, harness the countless tools available in the digital age, educate yourself, and be the architect for the business entity that is you. Inspired by The Art of War, Me, Inc. is organized around thirteen specific, easy-to-understand principles for success — “The Art of More” — drawn from Simmons’s own triumphs and failures. From finding the confidence necessary to get started, to surrounding yourself with the right people, to knowing when to pull the plug and when to double-down, these principles can help you attain the freedom and wealth of your dreams.

MA – WORDLESS!

ica

Art Spiegelman and Phillip Johnston appear at the ICA to perform WORDLESS! on Sunday, October 26th at 3:00 PM and 8:00 PM!

Press Release:

Art Spiegelman radically changed the public perception of comics with his Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece MAUS, earning the designation “father of the graphic novel.” In WORDLESS!—a genre-bending performance he calls a “hybrid slide talk, standup routine, academic lecture, and full-scale concert by Philip Johnston”—he takes viewers on a punchy personal tour of wordless novels by early-20th-century masters Frans Masereel, Lynd Ward, and Milt Gross. Accompanied by Johnston’s score of “rollicking, klezmer-inflected, vaudeville jazz” (Paris Review), WORDLESS! also features “Shaping Thought,” a new work Spiegelman drew specifically for the project.

CA – Archibald’s Next Big Thing Signing

thale

Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) appears at Vroman’s Bookstore to present and sign Archibald’s Next Big Thing on Sunday October 26, 2014 at 1:00 PM!

Press Release:

Archibald’s Next Big Thing is the extraordinary adventure of an extra-ordinary chicken named Archibald Struer. His three brothers and one sister have each found their “Big Thing” (including a brother chicken who impressively grows human hair) and the only Big Thing Archibald has planned is what he’s eating for lunch. This all changes when he receives a mysterious blue card that reads “YOUR BIG THING IS HERE!” So, accompanied by a friendly bee named BEE, Archibald takes the card and heads out on a fantastic journey in hopes of finding his NEXT BIG THING. It’s a story that reminds us that, while looking for the next big thing isn’t a bad thing, we should always remember that big and beautiful things are all around us…right NOW.

About Tony Hale:

Actor/author Tony Hale is best known for his role as Gary Walsh, the downtrodden personal aide to Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s Vice President Selina Meyers on HBO’s Emmy nominated political comedy, Veep. In 2013, Hale won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and was nominated again in 2014 for his performance.

Hale has appeared in a wide variety of critically acclaimed television programs and films throughout his career. Prior to Veep, he co-starred as the socially awkward Buster Bluth on the ground-breaking, Emmy Award-winning series Arrested Development, which aired on Fox from 2003 – 2006 and was later picked up for an additional season on Netflix in 2013.
