CA – Access All Areas Signing

Scott Ian, founding member of the band Anthrax, appears at Book Soup on Friday, December 15, 2017 at 7:00 PM to present and sign his new book: Access All Areas: Stories from a Hard Rock Life. 

Scott Ian, rhythm guitarist and co-founder of Anthrax and author of I’m the Man, collects all of his craziest hard rock stories into one balls-to-the-wall volume. Access All Areas has tales of humor, excess, fun, debauchery, food, booze, and mayhem from Scott’s many years on the road as well as his encounters with celebrities like Dimebag Darrell, Trent Reznor/NIN, Madonna, Lemmy Kilmister, John Carpenter, Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Slayer, David Lee Roth, and many more.

In recent years, Scott Ian’s “Speaking Words” club tours have drawn a devoted crowd of metal fans who love a good rock story. Ian has perfected his delivery, comic timing, and ability to highlight where the ridiculous meets the sublime. Best of all, Ian seems to lack the ability to be embarrassed, rendering Access All Areas howlingly funny, self-deprecating, and every bit as brash and brazen as one would expect from one of the original architects of speed metal.

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.

CA – Last Fan Standing LIVE

Book Soup and Spaceland are proud to present actor, director, writer, and producer Bruce Campbell at the Regent Theater on Wednesday Oct 25, 2017 at 7:00 PM as he presents his new book Hail to the Chin and hosts Last Fan Standing, a live game show! Tickets available at the link…

Last Fan Standing is a no-holds-barred live game show, and YOU get to participate! Test your ultimate nerd knowledge as the legendary Bruce Campbell hosts. The top four contenders will face off on stage…will you be one of them? For more information on the show, see the Last Fan Standing website. Every ticket includes admission to Last Fan Standing and comes with a copy of Bruce Campbell’s book HAIL TO THE CHIN. VIP tickets also include an exclusive Meet & Greet with Bruce Campbell.

ABOUT THE BOOK :

Hail to the Chin is the new raucous and sardonic memoir from Bruce Campbell, a follow-up to the New York Times bestselling If Chins Could Kill. It’s been 15 years since his first memoir but Bruce is still living the dream as a “B” movie king in an “A” movie world.

Bruce Campbell makes his triumphant return from where he left off in If Chins Could Kill with further hilarious, gut-wrenchingly honest confessions.

Bruce brings us through his life in the decade since his first memoir and his roles as varied as they are numerous- from his roles in the Spider-Man movies to his self-referential My Name is Bruce to his role on #1 show Burn Notice and his new STARZ hit series Ash vs Evil Dead.

Over the last 15 years, Bruce has become a regular on the Wizard World convention circuit, has created his @GroovyBruce twitter account with over 400,000 followers and a Facebook page with almost 250,000 likes. His profile and reach is lightyears beyond where it was for Chins.

Hail to the Chin will be bursting with pictures and the signature humor that Bruce brought to If Chins Could Kill and will be devoured by his legions of fans across the country.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

In 1979 with Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, Campbell filmed the Evil Dead, in which he starred and co-executive produced. Stephen King dubbed it “the most ferociously original horror film of the year.” Bruce has written back-to-back New York Times bestsellers, appeared in all three Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies, and in 2013, he completed a seven-year run on Burn Notice, USA’s #1 show on cable. In a return to his B-movie roots, he completed the second season of the Ash Vs. Evil Dead TV series on Starz in 2016.

CA – America 51 Signing

Corey Taylor, lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour, appears at Book Soup on Saturday, August 12th from noon till 3:00 PM to sign America 51: A Probe Into the Realities That Are Hiding Inside “The Greatest Country in the World.” 

ABOUT AMERICA 51:
A skewering of the American underbelly by the New York Times bestselling author of Seven Deadly Sins and You’re Making Me Hate You.

The always-outspoken hard rock vocalist Corey Taylor begins America 51 with a reflection on what his itinerant youth and frequent worldwide travels with his multi-platinum bands Slipknot and Stone Sour have taught him about what it means to be an American in an increasingly unstable world. He examines the way America sees itself, specifically with regard to the propaganda surrounding America’s origins (like a heavy-metal Howard Zinn), while also celebrating the quirks and behavior that make a true-blue American.

Balancing humor, outrage, and disbelief, Taylor examines the rotting core of America, evaluating everything from politics and race relations to family and “man buns.” By continuing the wave of moral outrage begun in You’re Making Me Hate You, Taylor skewers contemporary America in his own signature style.

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.
