TX – Jane Two Signing

00000000-SPF-jane-two

Actor, director and writer SEAN PATRICK FLANERY appears at BookPeople to discuss and sign his debut novel Jane Two on Friday, April 22, 2016 at 7:00 PM!

Press Release:

We are proud to have Sean Patrick Flanery, accomplished actor (Boondock Saints, Young Indiana Jones, etc.), director and writer in our store this evening as he introduces his debut novel, Jane Two. Join us here at BookPeople as he explores that powerful first taste of love that sets the bar for something that we’ll chase, usually unsuccessfully, for the rest of our lives.

ABOUT JANE TWO

A young Mickey navigates through the dense Texas humidity of the 70s and out onto the porch every single time his Granddaddy calls him, where he’s presented with the heirloom recipe for life, love, and manhood. But all the logic and insight in the world cannot prepare him to operate correctly in the presence of a wonderfully beautiful little girl who moves in just behind his rear fence. How will this magical moment divide Mickey’s life into a “before and after” and permanently change his motion and direct it down the unpaved road to which only a lucky few are granted access?

ABOUT SEAN PATRICK FLANERY

Sean Patrick Flanery is an American actor who was raised in a small town outside Houston, Texas. He has appeared in over 100 movies and television shows, some of which he hopes you’ve seen and some of which he hopes you haven’t. He lives in Los Angeles, California, with his family, where he works in the entertainment industry, writes, and owns and operates a martial arts academy.

TX – Armada Signing

0000000000-armadaERNEST CLINE, best-selling author of Ready Player One, appears at BookPeople on Tuesday, April 12 at 7:00 PM to sign ARMADA!

A line ticket is required to join the signing line at this event. Tickets are available with the purchase of Armada from BookPeople on Tuesday, April 12th, starting at 9:00 AM.

Press Release:

BookPeople booksellers and book lovers alike are thrilled to welcome back one of our favorite local authors when he joins us for the paperback release of his bestselling novel and follow up to Ready Player One. Ernest Cline always gives an amazing presentation and reading filled with humor, insight, and downright out of this universe answers during Q&A.

ABOUT ARMADA

It’s just another day of high school for Zack Lightman. He’s daydreaming through another boring math class, with just one more month to go until graduation and freedom—if he can make it that long without getting suspended again.

Then he glances out his classroom window and spots the flying saucer.

At first, Zack thinks he’s going crazy.

A minute later, he’s sure of it. Because the UFO he’s staring at is straight out of the videogame he plays every night, a hugely popular online flight simulator called Armada—in which gamers just happen to be protecting the earth from alien invaders.

But what Zack’s seeing is all too real. And his skills—as well as those of millions of gamers across the world—are going to be needed to save the earth from what’s about to befall it.

Yet even as he and his new comrades scramble to prepare for the alien onslaught, Zack can’t help thinking of all the science-fiction books, TV shows, and movies he grew up reading and watching, and wonder: Doesn’t something about this scenario seem a little too… familiar?

Armada is at once a rollicking, surprising thriller, a classic coming of age adventure, and an alien-invasion tale like nothing you’ve ever read before—one whose every page is infused with author Ernest Cline’s trademark pop-culture savvy.

ABOUT ERNEST CLINE

Ernest Cline is a novelist, screenwriter, father, and full-time geek. His first novel, Ready Player One, was a New York Times and USA Today bestseller and appeared on numerous “best of the year” lists. Ernie lives in Austin, Texas, with his family, a time-traveling DeLorean, and a large collection of classic video games.
