CA – There I Go Again Signing

William Daniels, acclaimed for such roles as Mr. Feeny on Boy Meets World and KITT in Knight Rider, will be at Warwick’s Books on Thursday, September 7, 2017 at 7:30 PM signing copies of his book There I Go Again, a celebrity memoir like no other, revealing the life of a man whose acting career has been so rich that millions of Americans know his face even while they might not recognize his name.

William Daniels is an enigma–a rare chameleon who has enjoyed massive success both in Hollywood and on Broadway and been embraced by fans of successive generations. Few of his peers inspire the fervor with which buffs celebrate his most iconic roles, among them George Feeny in Boy Meets World, KITT in Knight Rider, Dr. Mark Craig in St. Elsewhere, and John Adams in the play and film 1776. Daniels guides readers through some of Hollywood’s most cherished productions, offering recollections of entertainment legends including Lauren Bacall, Warren Beatty, Kirk Douglas, Michael Douglas, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Mike Nichols, Jason Robards, Barbra Streisand, and many more. Looking back on his seventy-five-plus-year career, Daniels realizes that although he never had the courage to say “no” to being an actor, he backed into stardom. With his wife, actress Bonnie Bartlett, by his side, he came to realize that he wound up exactly where he was supposed to be: on the screen and stage.

She soon discovers her place as she begins to nanny a young girl named Adele, but that is upended when she falls for the girl’s father, Rochester, a sardonic man of power, wealth, and unexpected charm.

CA – Dark Night: A True Batman Story Signing

Meet writer and producer Paul Dini when he appears at the Grove’s Barnes & Noble on Saturday, September 23rd at 5:00 PM to discuss a Batman story like no other-the harrowing and eloquent autobiographical tale of his courageous struggle to overcome a desperate situation.

Legendary writer Paul Dini is best known as a producer and writer for several Warner Bros. Pictures Animation and DC Comics animated series, including Tiny Toon Adventures, Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, and Batman Beyond. Dini is also the creator of Jingle Belle and co-creator of Harley Quinn.

Walking home one evening, Dini was jumped and viciously beaten within an inch of his life. His recovery process was arduous, hampered by the imagined antics of the villains he was writing for television including the Joker, Harley Quinn and the Penguin. But despite how bleak his circumstances were, or perhaps because of it, Dini also always imagined the Batman at his side, chivvying him along during his darkest moments. A gripping graphic memoir of one writer’s traumatic experience and his deep connection with his creative material, DARK NIGHT: A TRUE BATMAN STORY is an original graphic novel that will resonate profoundly with fans

Join Paul Dini for this Very Special Discussion and signing of Dark Knight: A True Batman Story on Batman Day.
