Nick Offerman appears at Joseph-Beth Booksellers to discuss and sign his new book Gumption: Relighting the Torch of Freedom with America’s Gutsiest Troublemakers on Sunday, May 31, 2015 at 4:00 pm!
From George Washington to Willie Nelson, Offerman describes twenty-one heroic figures and why they inspire in him such great meaning. He’ll combine both serious history with light-hearted humor – comparing, say, George Washington’s wooden teeth to his own experience as a woodworker. The subject matter will also allow Offerman to expound upon his favorite topics, which readers love to hear – areas such as religion, politics, woodworking and handcrafting, agriculture, creativity, philosophy, fashion, and, of course, meat.
Ticket includes a copy of Gumption: Relighting the Torch of Freedom with America’s Gutsiest Troublemakers By Nick Offerman and a line ticket for the book signing. You will receive your copy of the book and line ticket when you arrive the afternoon of the event. Books and line tickets may not be picked up prior to the event. There will be no signed memorabilia.

Legendary cartoonist Jules Feiffer appears in conversation with author Neil Gaiman at the 92nd Street Y on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at 7:00 pm!
Everyone knows a Feiffer illustration when they see one: His characters leap across the page, each line belying humor and psychological insight.
Over Jules Feiffer’s prolific 70-year career, his nimble and singular imagination has given us new perspectives as well as biting satires on politics, love, marriage and religion—alternating with stories imbued with the playful anarchy of a child. Feiffer’s varied output includes children’s books (The Phantom Tollbooth and Bark, George), plays (Little Murders), movies (Carnal Knowledge and Popeye), comic strips (most notably in his Pulitzer Prize–winning Village Voice comic strip of 42 years) and graphic novels (The New York Times bestseller Kill My Mother).
Join him as he talks with author Neil Gaiman about his life, his work and his new book, Out of Line.
Jules Feiffer will sign copies of Out of Line after the event.

Greg Proops appears at the Moravian Book Shop on Sunday May 10th at 2:00 pm!
Greg Proops is an internationally renowned comedian, best known for starring on the hit improv comedy show Whose Line Is It Anyway? and for his popular award-winning podcast, “The Smartest Man in the World,” which Rolling Stone called “some of the boldest comedy on the podcasting frontier right now.” But Proops is also a fountain of historical knowledge, a wealth of pop culture trivia, and a generally charming know-it-all.
The Smartest Book in the World is based on Proops’s sensational, iTunes Top 10 podcast that has been downloaded more than nine million times, in which his “bold, never-boring voice takes center stage” (The New York Times). The book is a rollicking reference guide to the most essential areas of knowledge in Proops’s universe, from the noteworthy names of the ancient world and baseball, to the movies you must see and the albums you must hear.
Join us for a day of laughs starting with a Whose Line is it Anyway? style pre-show at 1:00pm with the Lehigh Valley’s own renowned improv comedy troop, The Associated Mess.
For additional details and to reserve your copy of The Smartest Book in the World call 610-866-5481.
