CA – Rose McGowan Signing

Rose McGowan appears at Barnes & Noble in the Grove on Wednesday February 7, 2018 at 7:00 PM to celebrate her memoir Brave – a no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches account of the rise of a millennial icon, fearless activist, and unstoppable force for change who is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantle the concept of fame, shine a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systemic misogyny, and empower people everywhere to wake up.

Rose McGowan was born in one cult and came of age in another, more visible cult: Hollywood. In a strange world where she was continually on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and identity and marketing them for profit.

Hollywood expected Rose to be silent and cooperative and to stay the path. Instead, she rebelled and asserted her true identity and voice. She reemerged unscripted, courageous, victorious, angry, smart, fierce, unapologetic, controversial, and real as f*ck.

This is a wristbanded event. A wristband will be issued on a first come, first serve basis to customers who purchase BRAVE from Barnes & Noble at The Grove beginning February 7th at 9am. Limit 1 wristband per book

CA – Iliza Shlesinger Signing

Press Release:

Meet breakout stand-up comedian Iliza Shlesinger when she joins us on Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 7:00 PM to celebrate her book Girl Logic. There’s logical. There’s illogical. Then there’s Iliza Shlesinger’s “GIRL LOGIC: The Genius and The Absurdity” a subversively funny collection of observations by the star of three Netflix comedy specials.

“Girl Logic” is Iliza’s term for the way women obsess over details and situations that men don’t necessarily even notice. She describes is as a characteristically female way of thinking that appears to be contradictory and circuitous but is actually a complicated and highly evolved way of looking at the world. When confronted with critical decisions about dating, sex, work, even getting dressed in the morning, Iliza argues that women will by nature consider every repercussion of every option before making a move toward what they really want. And that kind of holistic thinking can actually give women an advantage in what is still a male world.

In Iliza’s own words: “Understanding Girl Logic is a way of embracing both our aspirations and our contradictions. GL is the desire to be strong and vulnerable. It’s wanting to be curvy, but rail thin at the same time. It’s striving to kick ass in a man’s world while still being loved by the women around you.”

This is a wristbanded event. A wristband will be issued on a first come, first serve basis to customers who purchase Girl Logic from Barnes & Noble at The Grove beginning December 7th at 9am. Limit 1 wristband per book.

CA – The Grouchy Historian Signing

Television legend Ed Asner, with writer and producer Ed Weinberger, appear at the Grove’s Barnes & Noble on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at 7:00 PM to discuss their new book The Grouchy Historian: An Old-Time Lefty Defends Our Constitution Against Right-Wing Hypocrites and Nutjobs.

Ed Asner, a self-proclaimed dauntless Democrat from the old days, figured that if the right-wing wackos are wrong about voter fraud, Obama’s death panels, and climate change, they are probably just as wrong about what the Constitution says. There’s no way that two hundred-plus years later, the right-wing ideologues know how to interpret the Constitution. On their way home from Philadelphia the people who wrote it couldn’t agree on what it meant. What was the president’s job? Who knew? All they knew was that the president was going to be George Washington and as long as he was in charge, that was good enough. When Hamilton wanted to start a national bank, Madison told him that it was unconstitutional. Both men had been in the room when the Constitution was written. And now today there are politicians and judges who claim that they know the original meaning of the Constitution. Are you kidding?

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar appears at Barnes & Noble in the Grove on Tuesday, December 5th at 7:00 PM to celebrate his long awaited memoir Becoming Kareem: Growing Up On and Off the Court.

At one time, Lew Alcindor was just another kid from New York City with all the usual problems: He struggled with fitting in, with pleasing a strict father, and with overcoming shyness that made him feel socially awkward. But with a talent for basketball, and an unmatched team of supporters, Lew Alcindor was able to transform and to become Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

From a childhood made difficult by racism and prejudice to a record-smashing career on the basketball court as an adult, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s life was packed with “coaches” who taught him right from wrong and led him on the path to greatness. His parents, coaches Jack Donahue and John Wooden, Muhammad Ali, Bruce Lee, and many others played important roles in Abdul-Jabbar’s life and sparked him to become an activist for social change and advancement. The inspiration from those around him, and his drive to find his own path in life, are highlighted in this personal and awe-inspiring journey.

Join Kareem for the launch event for Becoming Kareem: Growing Up On and Off the Court. Kareem will also be signing Coach Wooden and Me: Our 50-Year Friendship On and Off the Court when purchased from this location
