Author Sarah Kuhn appears in conversation with Amber Benson and Seanan McGuire at Powell’s City of Books on Tuesday, July 12, 2016 at 7:00 PM!

Press Release:

Being a superheroine is hard. Working for one is even harder. Evie Tanaka is the put-upon personal assistant to Aveda Jupiter, her childhood best friend and San Francisco’s most beloved superheroine. She’s great at her job: blending into the background, handling her boss’s epic diva tantrums, and getting demon blood out of leather pants. Unfortunately, she’s not nearly as together when it comes to running her own life or standing up for herself. But everything changes when Evie’s forced to pose as her glamorous boss for one night, and her darkest secret comes out: she has powers, too.

Sarah Kuhn’s Heroine Complex (Daw) is the first book in a new trilogy that takes the superhero mythos and turns it on its ear. Kuhn will be joined for a panel discussion by Amber Benson, author of The Last Dream Keeper, and Seanan McGuire, author of Every Heart a Doorway.

OR – I Can’t Guess Release Party

000000000000-I Cant Guess

Daria Tessler and Dylan Jones appear at Floating World Comics on Thursday July 7, 2016 from 6-9pm for the I Can’t Guess art show and release party!

Press Release:

In addition to their recently published books, Daria Tessler & Dylan Jones are making a collaborative art zine out of a vast assortment of bits and pieces.

Dylan also will have a new zine called I Can’t Guess made for the show, in addition to his new book The Longer You Stare the Fatter I’m Guilty, published last month by Gridlords. Dylan Jones has led a shoe mouth face floppy dagger dinger across an array of pages with his dextrous limbs’ pinwheel pineal dialogue. His new book will no doubt leave a zipper-length void in midmouth just as you grew wanting.

Daria Tessler’s most recent book, Three Magical Recipes from the Book of Secrets of Albertus Magnus, was published by Perfectly Acceptable Press. Dig out your parents’ glassen vessel and catch thyself a rearmouse – Daria Tessler illuminates three recipes from Alchemist-in-Chief Albertus Magnus’s Book of Secrets… One spell-binding four-color Risograph booklet.

Dylan Jones is an artist originally hailing from New Hampshire. Jones probably draws for more hours, makes more art and animates more objects than anyone alive or dead. It’s hard to imagine Jones sleeping ever, and his work makes one believe that he likely only loosely does something resembling sleeping, with eyes agape at all times. A meditative existence, so to speak. His work is methodical, pulling at all of the items in view, all of our mundane surroundings, and showing us how people can inhabit these the way Jones will inhabit your psyche. Jones’s work is the field of fantasies for persons who have seen too much, and it is the nightmares of the blissfully ignorant.

Born in Finland, Daria Tessler has been popping out of a jack-in-the-box at the cranking of dawn’s sunburned hand to the music of unknown worlds. A master silkscreener and master artist, Tessler has pulled as many visions she has screens. Her expert use of color will make you believe you are seeing hues that your eyes couldn’t previously register. Her linework and patterning is the most pleasant waft of wispy air, filled with pollen and pines, brushing over you. Each inhabitant of Tessler’s work wears on them a blissful quality of anxiety, a state of mind. You are doing yourself the greatest favor by stepping out of your body and into her body of work. Her book Music of Changes will be out soon from Latvian publisher kus! as part of their mini kus! line.

OR – Mary-Louise Parker Signing

0000-Mary-Louise-Parker

Actress Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds, Red, Fried Green Tomatoes) signs her book Dear Mr. You at Powell’s City of Books on Saturday, June 25 at 2:00 PM.

Dear Mr. You (Scribner) is the bestselling, wonderfully unconventional, “warmly conspiratorial… seriously good” (The New York Times) literary memoir from award-winning actress Mary-Louise Parker. An extraordinary literary work, Dear Mr. You renders the singular arc of a woman’s life through letters Parker composes to the men, real and hypothetical, who have informed the person she is today. Beginning with the grandfather she never knew, the letters range from a missive to the beloved priest from her childhood, to remembrances of former lovers, to an homage to a firefighter she encountered, to a heartfelt communication with the uncle of the infant daughter she adopted. Readers will be amazed by the depth and style of Parker’s letters, which reveal the complexity and power to be found in relationships both loving and fraught.
