OR – The Order of Things Signing


Reid Psaltis appears at Floating World Comics to present The Order of Things book release & art exhibit on Thursday November 3rd from 6:00 – 9:00 PM.

Press Release:

The Order of Things, from rising star Reid Psaltis, is a subversive spin on the medieval bestiaries and animal encyclopedias that have fired the imaginations of children for centuries. Take a trip back in time through the natural world, but don’t let those breathtaking paintings distract you from the Order of Things. Psaltis’ humor is dry as those dinosaur bones.

A field guide to spotting and identifying mystery fauna, this fancifully illustrated work illuminates a menagerie of creatures, from the possibly extinct Ivory-Billed Woodpecker to the impossibly ubiquitous Jackalope.

Reid Psaltis majored in oil painting at Western Washington University and completed the science illustration graduate program at California State University, Monterey Bay. He interned in the Exhibitions Department at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, participating in the creation of the museum’s world famous dioramas.

His work as an illustrator has been featured online at the Rumpus, and in print in Science Notes, Scout Books’ Good Ink series, and in Dan Berne’s novel the Gods of Second Chances. His comics have appeared online and in eBooks from Top Shelf 2.0, Study Group Comics, Trip City and Alternative Comics. The Order of Things is Psaltis’ first book in print.

DC – An Evening with Trevor Noah


Comedian Trevor Noah appears at Sixth & I on Saturday, November 19th at 7:30 PM to present his new memoir BORN A  CRIME! Tickets available from Politics & Prose.

Host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah gained an international audience at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe with his furiously energetic and hilarious one-man show, The Racist. Now he looks back over the experiences that have fueled his career, charting his coming-of-age in South Africa. Born to a white, Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother, Noah was, under apartheid, illegal; after apartheid, as the country came to grips with its past and the chaos of its future, he developed a keen eye for the absurdities of politics, race, and nationalism. If survival is the theme of his book, his mother, the consummate survivor, is its heart, and Noah’s depictions of her fierce Christianity, her savvy hustling, and her determination are as moving as they are funny.

This event will not include a public signing; all books will be pre-signed by Noah.

RSVP on Facebook!
