UK – Goblins! Signing


BRIAN FROUD signs GOBLINS! at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 3rd December from 6:00 – 7:00 PM!

The bestselling team of artist Brian Froud and scholar Ari Berk have continued their exploration of the goblin realm, with a new and noxious version of the world-famous Goblins. For the uninformed, goblins are those maleficent creatures who cause all manner of havoc in the human realm. Now, thanks largely to Froud’s and Berk’s continuing carelessness, the viscid and largely nonsensical NEW volume has been unleashed on an unsuspecting public.

Among its pages are new letters of apologies and disclaimers complete with new, never-before-seen goblin art; a list of Gargle’s new titles, grants, entitlements, and responsibilities; and, sadly, much more! Also included is an envelope containing a new talisman that is guaranteed to ward off goblins.

Brian Froud is an award-winning illustrator, author, and faery authority. With his wife, Wendy, he has written Brian Froud’s Faeries’ Tales and Trolls. He is also the author of The World of the Dark Crystal and The Goblins of Labyrinth. He lives in Devon, England.

CA – Rules for a Knight Signing


Actor/writer Ethan Hawke appears at Barnes & Noble on Tuesday, November 17, 2015 at 7:00 PM to sign his new book RULES FOR A KNIGHT!

A knight, fearing he may not return from battle, writes a letter to his children in an attempt to leave a record of all he knows. In a series of ruminations on solitude, humility, forgiveness, honesty, courage, grace, pride, and patience, he draws on the ancient teachings of Eastern and Western philosophy, and on the great spiritual and political writings of our time. His intent: to give his children a compass for a journey they will have to make alone, a short guide to what gives life meaning and beauty.

This is a wristbanded event.

A wristband will be issued to customers who purchase
RULES FOR A KNIGHT at Barnes & Noble at The Grove beginning November 17th at 9am

Limit 1 wristband per book

RSVP on Facebook!
