  • CA – Sabrina the Teenage Witch Signing

    mxiaMelissa Joan Hart signs at Book Soup on Wednesday November 6, 2013 at 7:00 pm!

    Press Release:

    Melissa Joan Hart explained it all–from dating to bullies–in her groundbreaking role as Clarissa Darling on “Clarissa Explains It All.” She cast a spell on millions more viewers as “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.” Now, in Melissa Explains It All, Melissa tells the frank and funny behind-the-scenes stories from her extraordinary past and her refreshingly normal present.  Melissa has been entertaining audiences most of her life; when there were no girls named Melissa on her favorite show, the forceful four year old decided she’d get on TV her way. From that moment on, Melissa has shown a singular determination and focus–whether it’s for booking three national commercials so her dad would build her a tree house or for nailing the audition for “Clarissa.”  From her first commercial to her current starring role in ABC Family’s hit “Melissa and Joey,” Hart never let fame go to her head. She always had one foot in Hollywood and one foot in reality–and still does.  Melissa Joan Hart explains all that she’s learned along the way–what’s kept her grounded, normal and working when others have not been so fortunate–and that she’s the approachable, hilarious girl-next-door her fans have always thought she’d be.

    Nick Offerman appears at the New Beverly Cinema on Saturday October 5th at 6:00 pm to present and sign his new book Paddle Your Own Canoe!

    Press Release:

    Growing a perfect moustache, grilling red meat, wooing a woman–who better to deliver this tutelage than the always charming, always manly Nick Offerman, best known as Parks and Recreation’s Ron Swanson. Combining his trademark comic voice and very real expertise in woodworking–he runs his own woodshop–Paddle Your Own Canoe features tales from Offerman’s childhood in small-town Minooka, Illinois–“I grew up literally in the middle of a cornfield”–to his theater days in Chicago, beginnings as a carpenter/actor and the hilarious and magnificent seduction of his now-wife Megan Mullally.

A mix of amusing anecdotes, opinionated lessons and rants, sprinkled with offbeat gaiety, Paddle Your Own Canoe will not only tickle readers pink but may also rouse them to put down their smart phones, study a few sycamore leaves, and maybe even hand craft (and paddle) their own canoes.

    This is event will be held at the New Beverly Cinema located at 7165 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036.

    Admission: $31.95 (+tax) per person and includes a copy of Paddle Your Own Canoe (to be picked up the night of the event at the box office)

    About the book:

Riotous, revealing, and wonderfully relatable, Aisha Tyler’s Self-Inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation is about the power of calamity to shape life, learning, and success

    Claudia Christian discusses and signs her new memoir at Book Soup on Tuesday January 15, 2013 at 7:00 pm.

    When actress Claudia Christian flees a troubled childhood and moves to Hollywood at age 17, she steps through the looking glass into another world. From the set of “Dallas” to her starring role on the sci-fi series “Babylon 5,” Claudia’s affairs with billionaires, supermodels, rock stars, and celebrities are mixed with shootings, stalking, heartbreak, and betrayal. Onset and off, drama follows Claudia–an alcohol-fueled coke run and makeout session with a bridesmaid on her wedding day; her tempestuous, love-hate relationship with actor Angus Macfadyen; the conspiracy theories surrounding her ex-husband’s death; and a 20-year on-and-off relationship with billionaire Dodi Fayed before he dated Princess Diana. Hollywood life takes its toll on Claudia as she descends into alcohol addiction and a desperate battle to reclaim her life. Rehab, alternative treatments, and even hypnotism can’t break the cycle of alcohol abuse that threatens to destroy Claudia. Close to despair she discovers The Sinclair Method, a treatment that saves her life. Sometimes shocking, often humorous, always captivating — Babylon Confidential is a story of hope that will inspire and enlighten you.

    CA – Any Similarity Signing

    Comments Off on CA – Any Similarity Signing

    Drew Friedman speaks in conversation with Leonard Maltin at Book Soup on Saturday May 19, 2012 at 4:00pm.

    Finally back in print, Any Similarity is a collection of Drew Friedman’s earliest comic strips and illustrations, featuring his most obsessively stippled black-and-white panels and his most hilarious wise-guy takes on the stars and demi-stars and never-quite-stars of that swamp we like to call showbiz.

    In these strips, many of them written by his brother Josh Alan Friedman (both are sons of the legendary Bruce Jay Friedman: humor genes will tell!), the artist works out his obsession with such celebrities as Jim Nabors, Frank Sinatra Jr., Joe Franklin, Bob Hope, Andy Griffith, and Ed Wood, Jr. film star Tor Johnson, whom Friedman actually catapulted back into some sort of semi-fame when these strips were first published in the 1980s.

    Friedman is the kind of pop-culture aficionado whose Three Stooges worship is focused not on Moe, Larry or Curly but on Shemp (whose unmistakable mug graces the new cover of this edition), and whose teasing adoration can often be mistaken for mockery or contempt. But who but a worshipful fan would lavish quite so many dots on the loving delineation of these greats’ every pimple and wrinkle?

    About the Author
    Drew Friedman’s work has appeared in Raw, Weirdo, SPY, The New York Times, MAD, The New Yorker, BLAB!, The New York Observer, Rolling Stone, Field & Stream, appears regularly in Entertainment Weekly and many other magazines. His collection of portraits Drew Friedman’s Sideshow Freaks was published by Blast books in 2011. He resides in Pennsylvania with his wife and collaborator, Kathy Bidus and their two beagles.
