Harvard Book Store welcomes multi-talented actor, writer, and musician JASON SEGEL appears at the First Parish Church on Friday September 12th at 7:00 PM for a reading and signing of his hilariously frightening middle-grade novel Nightmares! Tickets on sale online only at jasonsegel.eventbrite.com.
Nightmares! is the first book in a trilogy about a boy named Charlie and a group of kids who must face their fears to save their town, co-written with New York Times bestselling author Kirsten Miller.
Sleeping has never been so scary. And now waking up is even worse!
Charlie Laird has several problems.
1. His dad married a woman he is sure moonlights as a witch.
2. He had to move into her purple mansion, which is NOT a place you want to find yourself after dark.
3. He can’t remember the last time sleeping wasn’t a nightmarish prospect. Like even a nap.
What Charlie doesn’t know is that his problems are about to get a whole lot more real. Nightmares can ruin a good night’s sleep, but when they start slipping out of your dreams and into the waking world—that’s a line that should never be crossed.
And when your worst nightmares start to come true . . . well, that’s something only Charlie can face. And he’s going to need all the help he can get, or it might just be lights-out for Charlie Laird. For good.

James Franco appears at The Strand for a very special evening with Frank Bidart on Friday August 9th from 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Academy Award Nominated Actor James Franco plays with the concept of memoir in his new book A California Childhood, through personal snapshots, sketches, paintings, poems, and stories.
An actor treads the line between reality and fiction every time he plays a part, and
for James Franco, that exploration isn’t limited to the screen—he’s also a visual artist with several exhibitions under his belt as well as the author of the widely praised story collection Palo Alto.
On the evening of August 9th, James will join us in the store for a special conversation and signing with legendary poet and academic Frank Bidart. Aside from the achievement of his many collections, Frank’s 2002 chapbook, Music Like Dirt, is the only chapbook to ever be nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. James and Frank will be speaking on memoir, California, and their own approaches to their written and visual creative endeavors.
