Few people possess a charming candor like Academy Award-nominated actress Anna Kendrick in her new collection of autobiographical essays, Scrappy Little Nobody. Sharing her observations of pop culture and stories from her life, including reviewing a binder full of butt doubles and her dual life as a middle-school student and Broadway performer, the star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect creates a picture of idiosyncratic Hollywood moments and captivatingly ordinary tales of a quirky girl. Experience Kendrick’s sharp wit in person at an author book discussion.
Born and raised in Portland, Maine, ANNA KENDRICK made her Broadway debut at the age of twelve for her Tony-nominated performance in the musical “High Society.” Since her Academy Award-nominated role as Natalie Keener in “Up in the Air,” she has made numerous theatrical appearances, including starring roles in Into the Woods and “The Twilight Saga” and “Pitch Perfect” film franchises. In 2013, she achieved musical success with the #2 Billboard hit song, “Cups (When I’m Gone),” featured in “Pitch Perfect.” Kendrick stars in “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates,” in theaters now, and in upcoming films including “The Accountant,” “Trolls,” and “The Hollars.” She will reprise her role as Beca in “Pitch Perfect 3,” coming in 2017.

Fantagraphics Bookstore welcomes back Seattle native Charles Burns, one of the founders of the alternative comix movement, on Saturday October 8th at 6:00 PM to discuss his masterpiece Black Hole and other seminal works as part of Fantagraphics 40th anniversary festivities. A small selection of rare Burns prints and posters will be displayed. RSVP on Facebook!
The artist will also appear at Town Hall on Monday, October 10th at 7:30 PM to present his new collection Last Look. RSVP on Facebook!
Seattle-raised cartoonist Charles Burns has been described as as “one of the most talented and compelling cartoonists of his generation.” During his 30-plus year career, he has published his distinctively dark idiosyncratic comics in a variety of magazines and graphic novels, including his Harvey Award-winning series “Black Hole.” He has also illustrated covers for Time, The New Yorker, and The New York Times Sunday Magazine, and is the cover artist for The Believer. Now he releases his award-winning epic trilogy—”X’ed Out,” “The Hive,” and “Sugar Skull”—all in one volume. Taking inspiration from the classic Franco-Belgian Tintin series, the trilogy tells the story of Doug, a troubled young man on a long, strange, mind-bending trip. A Publisher’s Weekly review of Hive praises “Burns’s power to shine a light on the darker side of human nature” and says, “the result will stick with readers long after being absorbed.”

We can all be heroes. That’s the inspiring message of this New York Times bestselling picture book biography series from historian and author Brad Meltzer, illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos.. Each picture book in this series is a biography of a significant historical figure, told in a simple, conversational, vivacious way, and always focusing on a character trait that makes the person a role model for kids. The heroes are depicted as children throughout, telling their life stories in first-person present tense, which keeps the books playful and accessible to young children. And each book ends with a line of encouragement, a direct quote, photos, a timeline, and a source list.
The illustrator is touring in support of the two newest releases, I Am Jane Goodall and I Am George Washington.
Christopher Eliopoulos began his illustration career as a letterer for Marvel, and has worked on thousands of comics, including”Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius,” “Pet Avengers,” and “Cow Boy,” all of which he wrote and illustrated. He lives in New Jersey with his wife and their identical twin sons.”
