    sf-mulgrew

    Actress Kate Mulgrew appears in conversation with Michelle Richmond on Sunday April 19, 2015 at 4:00 PM! Tickets ($40) are available at the link… Presented by Books Inc.

    Press Release:

    Spend Sunday Afternoon at The Chapel with Golden Globe and EMMY nominated actress Kate Mulgrew discussing her memoir, Born with Teeth, with Michelle Richmond, New York Times-bestselling author of Golden State.

    We know Kate Mulgrew for the strong women she’s played–Captain Janeway on Star Trek; the tough-as-nails “Red” on Orange is the New Black. Now, we meet the most inspiring and memorable character of all: herself. By turns irreverent and soulful, laugh-out-loud funny and heart-piercingly sad, Born with Teeth is the breathtaking memoir of a woman who dares to live life to the fullest, on her own terms.

    Golden Globe and EMMY nominee, Kate Mulgrew is an acclaimed fan-favorite actress whose performances span across television, film and stage.

    Mulgrew can currently be seen on Netflix’s engrossing hit series, Orange is the New Black. On the comedic drama about a woman imprisoned for transporting drug money Mulgrew stars as “Galina ‘Red’ Reznikov” who runs the prison’s kitchen. The series was renewed for a second season and is based on author Piper Kerman’s memoir Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison about her real life experiences.

    Mulgrew is internationally recognized for her famous portrayal of “Captain Janeway,” in which she made Star Trek franchise history as the first female captain in a leading role. She starred on Star Trek: Voyager for seven seasons and earned three Saturn Awards and one Satellite Award for her role. Mulgrew also went on to voice the character of Janeway in the PS2 and PC game Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force and Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force 2.

    Mulgrew received a Golden Globe nomination when she starred in Mrs. Columbo, the spin-off of the popular detective series. Previously, she had received recognition for her portrayal of “Mary Ryan” on the ABC soap Ryan’s Hope and on the ABC sitcom Heartbeat, which earned the People’s Choice Award for “Best New Drama.” Other notable television performances include Cheers, Murphy Brown, St. Elsewhere, NTSF: SD: SUV for Adult Swim, The Black Donnellys, Mercy, and Warehouse 13. Her film appearances include Star Trek: Nemesis, Throw Momma from the Train, A Stranger is Watching, and Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins.

    A classically trained theatre actress, Mulgrew toured throughout the United States as “Katharine Hepburn” in her one-woman stage play, Tea at Five, for which she was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle and Lucille Lortel Award.

    In 2008, Mulgrew was awarded with an Obie for her performance as “Clytemnestra” in Iphigenia 2.0, an exuberant and modern retelling of Iphigenia. Her other theatre credits include Equus, The American Dream, The Sandbox, Our Leading Lady, Black Comedy, Titus Andronicus, The Exonerated, The Royal Family, The Film Society, What the Butler Saw, Hedda Gabler, Measure for Measure, The Real Thing, Another Part of the Forest, Major Barbara, Antony and Cleopatra, and Somewhere Fun.

    About Michelle Richmond: Michelle Richmond is the author of Golden State, the New York Times bestseller The Year of Fog, the novels No One You Know and Dream of the Blue Room, the award-winning story collection The Girl in the Fall-Away Dress, and most recently the story collection Hum.

    Michelle has received the Catherine Doctorow Innovative Fiction Prize (2012), the Hillsdale Award for Fiction from the Fellowship of Southern Writers (2009), the Associated Writing Programs Award, and the Mississippi Review Fiction Prize.

    PA – Puppet Master #1 Signings

    PuppetMaster_1Press Release:

    Action Lab Entertainment is about to launch their brand new series, CHARLES BAND’S PUPPET MASTER, based on the film series of the same name. In the spirit of brotherhood and camaraderie that built the City of Champions, the Pittsburgh based publisher is teaming up with popular Pittsburgh based comic chain NEW DIMENSION COMICS for a massive two day signing event.

    New Dimension Comics will host Puppet Master Writer Shawn Gabborin, and cover artist Scott Hedlund will be on hand to sign the limited edition store exclusive cover of the brand new series. Gabborin and Hedlund will appear at their stores in Cranberry, PA from 2-4 pm and at the Century III Mall in West Mifflin, PA from 6-8pm on Friday, April 3rd . On Saturday, April 4th Shawn Gabborin will appear at New Dimension stores at Clearview Mall in Butler, PA from 2-4 pm and Pittsburgh Mills in Tarentum, PA from 6-8pm.

    Puppet Master is the story Andre Toulon, an elderly puppet maker who discovers an ancient Egyptian potion and uses it to bring his creations to life. At the height of World War II, Andre fled to America, pursued by Nazis. In a last ditch effort to protect his secrets, the master packs the dolls away and takes his own life. Years later a rogue psychic revives the dolls, leaving his associates to face off against the monstrous marionettes. Decades (and a handful of “masters”) later, the puppets are still raising hell in their own unique way.

    The Puppet Master film series has enjoyed a worldwide cult following since 1989 and spawned nine sequels including the most recent, Puppet Master X: Axis Rising.

    PUPPET MASTER #1 Written by Shawn Gabborin, with art by Michela Da Sacco and Yann Perrelet hits comic shops nationwide in April.
