DC – Judah Friedlander Signs

00judah_Freidlander

Judah Friedlander appears at Politics & Prose on Monday, November 30, 2015 at 7:00 PM to sign his new book of cartoons!

A stand-up comic and actor, Friedlander appeared in American Splendor and is best known for his work in 30 Rock. But he’s not just a multi-talented performer—Friedlander has written the karate primer, How to Beat Up Anybody, and he’s been drawing since he was a child. This collection of artwork and cartoons showcases the visual side of Friedlander’s wit and humor as he takes subjects both serious and silly to new heights of absurdity.

DC – Jesse Eisenberg Signs

00lex

Jesse Eisenberg appears at Politics & Prose to sign his new book BREAM GIVES ME HICCUPS on Friday, November 20, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.

To accomplishments that include writing and acting in plays—most recently with Vanessa Redgrave—publishing in The New Yorker, and being nominated for an Academy Award for his role in The Social Network, Eisenberg now adds a lively collection of short fiction. As likely to take place in a college dorm as in ancient Pompeii, the stories feature a diverse cast of characters and their miscommunications, from Alexander Graham Bell frustrated in reaching someone by phone, to a couple whose email exchange is hijacked by a relative obsessed with Bosnia.

DC – Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Signs

Mycroft-Holmes

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar signs at Politics and Prose on Saturday, October 31, 2015 at 11:00 am.

In his first novel for adults, the NBA-legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, author of On the Shoulders of Giants and, not-incidentally, a long-time fan of the Holmes mysteries, focuses on Sherlock’s older, smarter but, according to Arthur Conan Doyle, less industrious, brother. In 1870, however, Mycroft is working hard at the War Office in London and already showing a distinct knack for international diplomacy. When news of strange deaths in Trinidad sends him overseas to investigate, he’s drawn into a puzzle that may involve supernatural beings.

The line for this signing will form outside the bookstore beginning at 10 a.m..

No posed photos will be allowed, but customers may take photos as they move through the signing line.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar will be signing books only, no memorabilia.

00wpierce

Actor Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Treme, Ray Donovan) signs his new book THE WIND IN THE REEDS at Politics & Prose on Monday, October 5, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.

Pierce, star of The Wire and an Emmy-award-winning producer, was born in New Orleans, where his family still lives in the Pontchartrain Park area. His book, co-written with Rod Dreher, a columnist, critic, and author of Crunchy Cons, is a heartfelt memoir that both mourns the losses of Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent civil chaos, and celebrates the spirit that has sustained his family and many others as they’ve worked steadily over the last ten years to rebuild their devastated neighborhoods.

DC – March: Book 2 Signing

March-Book-Two

Congressman John Lewis and co-writer Andrew Aydin appear at Politics & Prose on Sunday, June 7, 2015 at noon to sign MARCH: BOOK 2.

In the eagerly-awaited second volume of his civil rights trilogy, Congressman John Lewis again collaborates with writer Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell to put historic events into the immediate context of a graphic memoir. Recounting his personal and political coming-of-age in the segregated South, Lewis picks up the story after the heady days of the Nashville sit-ins, recounting the more dangerous challenges he faced with the Freedom Riders as the group’s nonviolent actions were met with beatings and imprisonment. Courage triumphed over brutality, and the book ends as the twenty-three-year-old Lewis is elected to lead the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and prepares for the 1963 March on Washington.
