DC – Big Mushy Happy Lump Signing

Cartoonist Sarah Andersen, creator of the webcomic Sarah’s Scribbles, appears at Barnes & Noble on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at 7:00 PM to sign her latest collection Big Mushy Happy Lump!

Sarah Andersen’s hugely popular, world-famous Sarah’s Scribbles comics are for those of us who boast bookstore-ready bodies and Netflix-ready hair, who are always down for all-night reading-in-bed parties and extremely exclusive after-hour one-person music festivals.

In addition to the most recent Sarah’s Scribbles fan favorites and dozens of all-new comics, this volume contains illustrated personal essays on Sarah’s real-life experiences with anxiety, career, relationships and other adulthood challenges that will remind readers of Allie Brosh’s Hyperbole and a Half and Jenny Lawson’s Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. The same uniquely frank, real, yet humorous and uplifting tone that makes Sarah’s Scribbles so relatable blooms beautifully in this new longer form.

Authors Eoin Colfer and Jonathan Stroud appear at the Takoma Park Library on Monday, November 7, 2016 at 7:00 PM!

In Colfer’s Marvel adventure, Tony Stark, also known as Iron Man, is on his way to a party one night when he notices a supposedly missing US gunboat in the waters off an uninhabited Irish island. Upon investigating this strange occurrence, he uncovers a plot to sow mayhem at an ecology conference happening nearby. Does he even have a chance of saving the day without his fellow Avengers by his side?

In Stroud’s latest Lockwood & Co. installment, Lucy has been finding work as a freelance operative. Nevertheless, she is thrilled when Lockwood appears and asks for her help; her former coworkers are not, however, equally pleased with her return. Lucy must not only find the Source of the infamous Brixton Cannibal; she must see if she can make broken friendships whole again as well.

DC – Moonglow Signing

000-moonglow-chabon

Author Michael Chabon presents his new novel MOONGLOW at Sixth & I on Tuesday December 6, 2016 at 7:00 PM. Tickets and books available from Politics & Prose…

In MOONGLOW, Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Chabon turns his own family history into fiction as he imagines the murky origins and murkier fate of Chabon Scientific Company, a mail-order novelty business.  This expansive narrative unfolds as an old man’s deathbed confession to his grandson; over the course of his final week, the man leaves a dizzying legacy of half-revealed secrets and shocking revelations as he looks back over a tumultuous century and relives scenes from an impoverished childhood in south Philadelphia, wartime Europe, a prison in upstate New York, and the American space program.

About this author:
Michael Chabon is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay — an epic novel that charts 16 years in the lives of Sammy Clay and Joe Kavalier, two Jewish cousins who create a popular series of comic books in the early 1940s, the years leading up to the U.S. entry into World War II. In addition to novels, including the now-classic Wonder Boys, Chabon has also produced short stories, screenplays, children’s books, comics, and newspaper serials.

DC – An Evening with Trevor Noah

0000_bac_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.

DC – Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Double Down Signing

0000_dwk_double-down_jeff-kinney

Bestselling author Jeff Kinney appears at the Avalon Theatre Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at 6:30 p.m.

Double the laughter. Double the trouble. Double the fun. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Double Down

Attend the North American launch of the newest book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series!

In Greg Heffley’s latest adventure, he is fighting the good fight against his mom’s mission to get him to stop playing video games and explore his creative side. That may be the biggest scare of Greg’s Halloween season, but the traditional creepy elements of the holiday also abound and create a constant threat of more frights. A tastier side of Halloween—a bag of gummy worms—may just provide the inspiration to solve all Greg’s problems. Would making a movie show his mom that he can be creative and a dedicated gamer at the same time?

1 book and 1 ticket: $19.75
1 book and 2 tickets: $24.75
1 book and 3 tickets: $29.75
