DC – Judah Friedlander Signs

00judah_Freidlander

Judah Friedlander appears at Politics & Prose on Monday, November 30, 2015 at 7:00 PM to sign his new book of cartoons!

A stand-up comic and actor, Friedlander appeared in American Splendor and is best known for his work in 30 Rock. But he’s not just a multi-talented performer—Friedlander has written the karate primer, How to Beat Up Anybody, and he’s been drawing since he was a child. This collection of artwork and cartoons showcases the visual side of Friedlander’s wit and humor as he takes subjects both serious and silly to new heights of absurdity.

DC – Jesse Eisenberg Signs

00lex

Jesse Eisenberg appears at Politics & Prose to sign his new book BREAM GIVES ME HICCUPS on Friday, November 20, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.

To accomplishments that include writing and acting in plays—most recently with Vanessa Redgrave—publishing in The New Yorker, and being nominated for an Academy Award for his role in The Social Network, Eisenberg now adds a lively collection of short fiction. As likely to take place in a college dorm as in ancient Pompeii, the stories feature a diverse cast of characters and their miscommunications, from Alexander Graham Bell frustrated in reaching someone by phone, to a couple whose email exchange is hijacked by a relative obsessed with Bosnia.

DC – Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Signs

Mycroft-Holmes

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar signs at Politics and Prose on Saturday, October 31, 2015 at 11:00 am.

In his first novel for adults, the NBA-legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, author of On the Shoulders of Giants and, not-incidentally, a long-time fan of the Holmes mysteries, focuses on Sherlock’s older, smarter but, according to Arthur Conan Doyle, less industrious, brother. In 1870, however, Mycroft is working hard at the War Office in London and already showing a distinct knack for international diplomacy. When news of strange deaths in Trinidad sends him overseas to investigate, he’s drawn into a puzzle that may involve supernatural beings.

The line for this signing will form outside the bookstore beginning at 10 a.m..

No posed photos will be allowed, but customers may take photos as they move through the signing line.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar will be signing books only, no memorabilia.

DC – Cartoons for Victory Signing

00cfv

Warren Bernard signs CARTOONS FOR VICTORY on Monday, October 19, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.

World War II needed heroes on the home front as well as on the battlefields abroad, and many comic artists provided just that. Bernard, executive director of Small Press Expo, whose vast collection and vaster knowledge of comic art has made him a frequent speaker on and contributor to books on the history of comics, has marshalled the work of figures including Milton Caniff, Chester Gould, Al Capp, Harold Gray, Charles Addams, Herblock, Peter Arno, Will Eisner, and Harvey Kurtzman for a comprehensive view of what the comics did in the war.
