ABOUT THE BOOK: When Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray met at church bingo in 1963, it was love at first sight. Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men and had families. Decades later, now in their mid-’60s, Hazel and Mari reunite again at a church bingo hall. Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage.

Monster Mania Con celebrates the 40th Anniversary of Halloween

Join us at MONSTER-MANIA CON 40 as we continue to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN!

We are VERY happy to announce that NICK CASTLE will be returning to CHERRY HILL, NJ for MONSTER-MANIA CON 40 which will be held the weekend of AUGUST 17-19th!

HALLOWEEN fans know that NICK essentially defined the role of MICHAEL MYERS in John Carpenter’s original 1978 horror classic. Many have tried to imitate the mannerisms of THE SHAPE as portrayed by NICK in the film. Now, 40 years after the original film NICK will reprise the role in the new HALLOWEEN 2018 film which will be released in October of this year.

After the release of HALLOWEEN NICK moved behind the camera, taking on the role of director. NICK directed over 13 different projects including films such as 1984’s THE LAST STARFIGHTER, 1986’s THE BOY WHO COULD FLY, 1993’s DENNIS THE MENACE and the 1995 comedy MAJOR PAYNE. NICK also co-wrote ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK with John Carpenter.

Please join us in welcoming NICK CASTLE back to MONSTER-MANIA CON 40 in Cherry Hill, NJ!

NJ – There I Go Again Signing

Actor William Daniels (star of Boy Meets World, Girl Meets World, St. Elsewhere, and the Voice of KITT on Knight Rider) appears at Bookends on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at 2:00 PM to sign his memoir There I Go Again.

There I Go Again is 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.
