NC – Behold the Dinosaurs Launch Party

dh-hahtf

Dustin Harbin celebrates the release of “Behold the Dinosaurs” at Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find on Saturday, November 29th from 2:00 - 4:00 PM!

They will have copies of the book on hand. This event is free and suitable for all ages! Bring your entire Dino-loving family!

More info on the book from publisher Nobrow here.

Introducing a brand new large format Leporello from American artist Dustin Harbin.

Can you name over 100 Dinosaurs off the top of your head? Do you know which of them came first? Which were the tallest and longest and which were the smallest and shortest? Which of them travelled by land and sea, or sky? Well if you don’t know, Behold! the Dinosaurs! will get you well on your way there, with over 100 of the most awe-inspiring dinos and a handful of other prehistoric creatures that leap, crawl, run, fly, swim and slither from one side of this 4 metre concertina to the other, right up to the point where… well, you know.

Dustin Harbin is well known in the alternative comics scene for his Diary Comics series published by Koyama Press. Dustin’s work has also appeared in Casanova, Seconds and the Hic & Hoc Illustrated Journal of Humor. He lives in North Carolina in the United States, just east of the region formed when the Ur-continents of Baltica and Laurentia collided, throwing up the Appalachian Mountains near the beginning of the Devonian Period. His favourite dinosaur is – of course – the Stegosaurus.

NC – An Evening with Tony Hale

hale-anbtActor Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) makes an exclusive Raleigh engagement on Saturday, November 8th from 6:00 – 9:00 pm. Co-sponsored by Quail Ridge Books & Music and the NC State University Department of Social Work

Raleigh is excited to welcome Emmy-award winning actor Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) for an exclusive engagement at the Hunt Library on Centennial Campus at North Carolina State University. The event will be held on Saturday, November 8th, from 6:30-8:30pm, with Hale discussing his acting career and his new children’s book, Archibald’s Next Big Thing. Prior to the event there will be a VIP reception, proceeds from which will benefit the NC State Social Work Enhancement fund. Books will be sold at the event.

Released by Boxing Clever Publishing, Archibald’s Next Big Thing is the extraordinary adventure of an extra-ordinary chicken named Archibald Strutter as he takes off on a fantastic journey in hopes of finding his NEXT BIG THING. Through new friends and experiences, the wide-eyed, semi-bald chicken finally discovers that, while looking for the next big thing isn’t a bad thing, we should always remember that big and beautiful things are all around us…right NOW.

Regarding the inspiration for the book, Hale said, “The thoughts of an actor aren’t very different from Archibald’s. I always find myself looking ahead to the next big role, the next big opportunity, obsessed with the question, “What’s next, what’s next, WHAT’S NEXT!?’ But embracing and enjoying the PRESENT is a message I want both my daughter and myself to remember. Every. Single. Day.”

Follow Archibald on his amazing adventures at adventuresofarchibald.com, Twitter: @MrTonyHale, or Instagram: @theadventuresofarchibald.
