GA – Spinning Signing

Cartoonist Tillie Walden appears at Little Shop of Stories on Friday, September 22nd at 7:00 PM to sign her graphic novel Spinning from First Second Books.

About Spinning:
Figure skating was Tillie Walden’s life. She woke before dawn for morning lessons, went straight to group practice after school, and spent weekends competing in glitter and tights. It was a central piece of her identity, her safe haven from the stress of school, bullies, and family. But as Tillie’s interests evolve, from her growing passion for art to a first love realized with a new girlfriend, she begins to question how the close-minded world of figure skating fits in. Poignant and captivating, this powerful graphic memoir captures what it’s like to come of age, come out, and come to terms with leaving behind everything you used to know.

This event is free and open to the public! Attendees must purchase a copy of the book from us to earn a place in the signing line.

RSVP on Facebook!

GA – An Evening with Wallace Shawn

Wallace Shawn (The Princess Bride, My Dinner with Andre, Toy Story) appears in conversation with local playwright and professor Margaret Baldwin at Horizon Theatre on Thursday, August 31st at 7:00 PM to read and discuss Night Thoughts. This is a ticketed event. Tickets include a signed copy of the book from A Cappella Books.

Although he is guided and inspired by the people he respects, and despite the insufficiency of his knowledge and experience—an insufficiency shared by most (or all) other humans, Wallace Shawn can’t see any real alternative to trying to figure out his own answers to the most essential questions about the world he lives in.

Having recently passed the age of seventy, before which he found it difficult to piece together more than a few fragments of understanding, Shawn would like to pass on anything he’s learned before death or dementia close down the brief window available to him, but he may not be ready yet.

RSVP on Facebook!
