MO – Good Clean Fun Signing


Press Release:

Left Bank Books and Maryville Talks Books present actor, author, and woodworker Nick Offerman, appear on Thursday, October 20, 2016 at 7:00 PM sign and discuss his new book, Good Clean Fun: Misadventures in Sawdust at Offerman Workshop.

Ticket Information: $39 ticket admits ONE person and includes ONE copy of Good Clean Fun. $44 ticket admits TWO people and includes ONE copy of Good Clean Fun. Tickets available at the link.

Signing Guidelines

– Nick will sign and personalize copies of Good Clean Fun, Gumption, and Paddle Your Own Canoe.

– Nick will not sign memorabilia.

– Photos are permitted of the stage during the event. However, in order to keep the line moving, photos taken from the signing line and posed photos will not be permitted.

After two New York Times bestsellers, Nick Offerman returns with the subject for which he’s known best—his incredible real-life woodshop. Nestled among the glitz and glitter of Tinseltown is a testament to American elbow grease and an honest-to-god hard day’s work: Offerman Woodshop. Captained by hirsute woodworker, actor, comedian, and writer Nick Offerman, the shop produces not only fine handcrafted furniture, but also fun stuff—kazoos, baseball bats, ukuleles, even mustache combs. Now Nick and his ragtag crew of champions want to share their experiences of working at the Woodshop, tell you all about their passion for the discipline of woodworking, and teach you how to make a handful of their most popular projects along the way.

MO – Mighty Jack Signing

000000000000000_bhatke_mighty-jackPress Release:

Left Bank Books presents bestselling Zita the Spacegirl author Ben Hatke on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 4:00 PM, who will sign and discuss his graphic novel retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk, Mighty Jack.

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase from Left Bank Books of any of Ben Hatke’s titles will be required to enter the signing line.

Jack might be the only kid in the world who’s dreading summer. But he’s got a good reason: summer is when his single mom takes a second job and leaves him at home to watch his autistic kid sister, Maddy. It’s a lot of responsibility, and it’s boring, too, because Maddy doesn’t talk. Ever. But then, one day at the flea market, Maddy does talk to tell Jack to trade their mom’s car for a box of mysterious seeds. It’s the best mistake Jack has ever made.
