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.

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.

00wpierce

Actor Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Treme, Ray Donovan) signs his new book THE WIND IN THE REEDS at Politics & Prose on Monday, October 5, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.

Pierce, star of The Wire and an Emmy-award-winning producer, was born in New Orleans, where his family still lives in the Pontchartrain Park area. His book, co-written with Rod Dreher, a columnist, critic, and author of Crunchy Cons, is a heartfelt memoir that both mourns the losses of Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent civil chaos, and celebrates the spirit that has sustained his family and many others as they’ve worked steadily over the last ten years to rebuild their devastated neighborhoods.
