About NAPOLEON DYNAMITE:
From the rural town of Preston, Idaho, comes Napoleon Dynamite (Jon Heder). With a red ‘fro, his moon boots, and illegal government ninja moves, he is a new kind of hero. His family consists of fragile brother Kip (Aaron Ruell), who’s seeking his soul-mate in online chat rooms; Uncle Rico (Jon Gries), who is stuck in his “glory” days of high school football; and Grandma (Sandy Martin), who enjoys going out to the dunes on her quad-runner.

Napoleon spends his days drawing magical beasts, working on his computer hacking skills to impress the chicks, and begrudgingly feeding his Grandma’s pet llama. When his friend Pedro (Efren Ramirez) decides to run for class president, it is Napoleon to the rescue to help him triumph over adversity.

About Jon Heder:
Jonathan Joseph “Jon” Heder is an American actor and producer. His feature film debut came as the title character of the comedy film Napoleon Dynamite (2004), which quickly became a cult favorite. He has also acted in the films The Benchwarmers (2006), School for Scoundrels (2006), Blades of Glory (2007), Mama’s Boy (2007), When in Rome (2010), and Walt Before Mickey (2015).

CA – Jenna Fischer Signing

Jenna Fischer appears at Book Soup on Friday, November 17th at 7:00 PM discuss and sign The Actor’s Life: A Survival Guide.

Jenna Fischer’s Hollywood journey began at the age of 22 when she moved to Los Angeles from her hometown of St. Louis. With a theater degree in hand, she was determined, she was confident, she was ready to work hard. So, what could go wrong? Uh, basically everything. The path to being a professional actor was so much more vast and competitive than she’d imagined. It would be eight long years before she landed her iconic role on The Office, nearly a decade of frustration, struggle, rejection and doubt.

If only she’d had a handbook for the aspiring actor. Or, better yet, someone to show her the way–an established actor who could educate her about the business, manage her expectations, and reassure her in those moments of despair. Jenna wants to be that person for you.

Event Guidelines:

  • A copy of The Actor’s Life from Book Soup is required to attend this event. Save your receipt as it will be checked in line.
  • We open at 9am. Please do not line up before then. Please be respectful of neighboring businesses. The first 60 people in line (with The Actor’s Life purchased from Book Soup) will be admitted into the store for the talk. An overflow line will be held outside if needed.

CA – William Daniels Signing

Actor William Daniels (Boy Meets World, Knight Rider, 1776) appears at Book Soup on Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at 7:00 PM to sign his new memoir There I Go Again.

There I Go Again is a celebrity memoir like no other, revealing the life of a man whose acting career has been so rich that millions of Americans know his face even while they might not recognize his name.

William Daniels is an enigma a rare chameleon who has enjoyed massive success both in Hollywood and on Broadway, embraced by fans of successive generations. Few of his peers inspire the fervor with which buffs celebrate his most iconic roles, among them George Feeny on Boy Meets World, KITT on Knight Rider, Dr. Mark Craig on St. Elsewhere, and John Adams in the play and film 1776.

Daniels guides readers through some of Hollywood s most cherished productions, offering recollections of entertainment legends including Lauren Bacall, Warren Beatty, Kirk Douglas, Michael Douglas, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Mike Nichols, Jason Robards, Barbra Streisand, and many more.

Looking back on his seventy-five-plus-year career, Daniels realizes that although he never had the courage to say no to being an actor, he backed into stardom. With his wife, actress Bonnie Bartlett, by his side, he came to realize that he wound up exactly where he was supposed to be on the screen and stage.
