NYC – Brooklyn Gladiator Signing

Dan Fogler (Balls of Fury, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) will be returning to Forbidden Planet NYC to sign comics on Wednesday April 11th! Premiering his new book Brooklyn Gladiator, Dan will be on hand for TWO signing sessions; one starting at 12pm and later that evening at 5pm.

Brooklyn Gladiator is set in the year 2033, in a despoiled America where New Yorkers survive on scraps. John Miller is an action hero for the ages, a rough and ready badass who could drink Han Solo, Jack Burton, and John McClane under the table. Brooklyn Gladiator is a tribute to the comics, films, and experiences that have inspired author Dan Fogler. With artwork from Glen Fabry, Tom Hodges, and Darrick Robertson, a panoramic creative vision, and a bloodthirsty, snarling sense of humor, this a comic sure to leave mind-blown readers in its wake!

NYC – Reel Pieces w/ Rachel Weisz

Academy-Award winning actress Rachel Weisz appears at the 92nd St Y on Monday, April 23, 2018 at 8:00 PM to present precede the April 27 release of her latest film Disobedience (which Weisz also produced).

Reel Pieces moderator Annette Insdorf will interview her about a career that spans 25 years and dozens of terrific films. Among the clips to be shown, a few will be from Disobedience (which will have its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival).

Rachel Weisz has starred in both mainstream successes like The Bourne Legacy, Runaway Jury, and The Mummy and independent prize-winners such as Michael Winterbottom’s I Want You, Fernando Meirelles’s The Constant Gardener (for which she won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress) and Adam Brooks’s Definitely, Maybe. Among her most impressive work is Alejandro Amenabar’s Agora — a historical drama of 2009 in which she plays a philosopher and teacher in 4th Century Alexandria — and The Whistleblower, Larysa Kondracki’s 2011 drama based on the real experiences of a Nebraska policeman who served as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia and confronted the UN for covering up a sex scandal. In recent years, Weisz has played both real figures (such as Deborah Lipstadt in Denial) and imaginative creations (as in Joshua Marston’s Complete Unknown). She has also worked onstage, notably in Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, the Broadway revival directed by Mike Nichols (and co-starring her husband Daniel Craig) in 2013.

Disobedience is directed by Sebastian Lelio, whose Chilean drama A Fantastic Woman just won the Academy Award for Best Foreign-Language Film. He co-wrote the screenplay with Rebecca Lenkiewicz (the co-writer of the acclaimed Polish drama Ida), adapted from Naomi Alderman’s novel. Set in London’s Orthodox Jewish community, the film has splendid performances by Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams and Alessandro Nivola.

NY – Failure Is An Option Signing

Actor H. Jon Benjamin appears at the Fisher Center on Wednesday May 2, 2018 at 8:00 PM to present and sign his new book Failure is an Option.

Press Release:

Oblong Books in association with The Fisher Center presents comedian H. Jon Benjamin—the lead voice behind Archer and Bob’s Burgers—who will help us all feel a little better about our own failures by sharing his own in a hilarious memoir-ish chronicle of failure.

Most people would consider H. Jon Benjamin a comedy show business success. But he’d like to remind everyone that as great as success can be, failure is also an option. And maybe the best option. In this book, he tells stories from his own life, from his early days (“wherein I’m unable to deliver a sizzling fajita”) to his romantic life (“how I failed to quantify a threesome”) to family (“wherein a trip to P.F. Chang’s fractures a family”) to career (“how I failed at launching a kid’s show”). As Jon himself says, breaking down one’s natural ability to succeed is not an easy task, but also not an insurmountable one.

Tickets available at the link!

NYC – Failure is an Option Launch Party

Actor H. Jon Benjamin appears at the Strand Book Store on Tuesday May 1, 2018 at 7:00 PM to sign his new book Failure is an Option.

H. Jon Benjamin is widely considered a comedy show success, but he’d like to remind everyone that as great as success can be, failure is also an option. And maybe the best option.

Breaking down one’s natural ability to succeed is not an easy task, but also not an impossible one. Society as we know it is, unfortunately, opposes failure. If failure became more accepted it would make the world a different place, a kinder, gentler place, where gardens are overgrown and most people stay home with their pets. A vision of failure, but also a vision of freedom.

With stories, examples of artistic and literary failure, and a powerful can’t-do attitude, Failure Is an Option is the book the world doesn’t need right now but will get regardless.

H. Jon Benjamin is an actor, voice actor and stand-up comedian, best known for voicing characters, including Sterling Archer in Archer, Bob Belcher in Bob’s Burgers, Dr. Katz in Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, Coach McGuirk and Jason in Home Movies, and a can of mixed vegetable in the film Wet Hot American Summer.

Admission Options: Buy a copy of Failure is an Option or a $15 gift card to attend this event. Please note that payment is required for all online event orders at the time of checkout. The event will be located in the Strand’s 3rd floor Rare Book Room at our store at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.
