Charles Soule Signing Curse Words #1
JHU Comic Books, Wednesday, January 18 at 6pm
Charles Soule is a busy man. He writes more than any mortal human should be able to, while still doing an excellent job... and yet, here he is, doing some insane new book with Ryan Browne for Image Comics that is sure to set the world, your face and your pants on fire.

I know we said "world" first which should include your face and your pants, but this book is mindbending so the normal rules do NOT apply!

Anyhow, come out and meet Charles Soule (Inhumans, She-Hulk, Letter 44) and have a great signing with us!

Oh, and we're going to have a raffle for a rare, signed Ashcan Edition of Curse Words #1, so come out and enter! (each copy of Curse Words #1 purchased gets you an entry into the raffle!)

So come out and join us for this fun, crazy signing!

*Purchase of Curse Words #1 required to participate in signing event.

He is actually an EVIL WIZARD, and EVIL THINGS are on the way. CURSE WORDS is a gonzo modern fantasy, full of darkness, light...and MAGIC. (lampbane)

January's book is Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo.
Two-time Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo returns to her roots with a moving, masterful story of an unforgettable summer friendship.
Raymie Clarke has come to realize that everything, absolutely everything, depends on her, and she has a plan. If Raymie can win the Little Miss Central Florida Tire competition, then her father, who left town two days ago with a dental hygenist, will see Raymie's picture in the paper and maybe come home. To win, not only does Raymie have to do good deeds and learn how to twirl a baton; she also has to contend with the wispy, frequently fainting Louisiana Elefante, who has a show-business background, and the fiery stubborn Beverly Tabinski, who's determined to sabotage the contest. But as the competition approaches, loneliness, loss, and unanswerable questions draw the three girls into an unlikely friendship-- and challenge each of them to come to the rescue in unexpected ways.

Noah Lederman Author Talk A World Erased: A Grandson’s Search for His Family’s Holocaust Secrets
Great Neck Library, Sunday, January 22 at 2pm
This poignant memoir by Noah Lederman, the grandson of Holocaust survivors, transports readers from his grandparents' kitchen table in Brooklyn to World War II Poland. Together, Noah and his grandmother explore the memories— of Auschwitz and a half-dozen other camps, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and the displaced persons camps—that his grandmother had buried for decades. I was left with the stories—the ones that had been hidden, the ones that offered catharsis, the ones that gave me a second hero, the ones that resurrected a family, the ones that survived even death. Their shared journey profoundly illuminates the transformative power of never forgetting.
Noah Lederman has written for The Economist, The Boston Globe, Miami Herald, The Washington Post, Slate, The New Republic, Chicago Sun-Times, BBC Travel, Salon, The Philadelphia Inquirer, San Francisco Chronicle, Tablet Magazine, The Jerusalem Post Magazine, Tikkun, Long Island Pulse, and Writer's Digest.
Noah Lederman will sign books available for purchase at the program. This is a pre-publication event. (added from Eventkeeper)

Annual Meeting of the Rye Free Reading Room
Rye Free Reading Room, Sunday, January 22 at unknown time
Join us for the Annual Meeting of Members of the Rye Free Reading Room followed by guest speaker Sam Weinman. Elections for Board Officers and Trustees will be held during the meeting, and all Members are encouraged to attend.
Sam Weinman is Golf Digest's digital editor. He previously covered professional golf and the NHL for Gannett Newspapers. Weinman enjoys playing golf with his two young sons since they are currently the only people he can outdrive. His first book, Win at Losing: How Our Biggest Setbacks Can Lead to Our Greatest Gains was released December 2016.
Advance Praise:
"Weinman engages his readers with a light, humorous tone while sharing stories from the likes of soap opera actress Susan Lucci and former presidential nominee Michael Dukakis about managing setbacks and emerging winners...Readers (especially sports fans) interested in the subject of failure will enjoy this thought-provoking analysis of beneficial losses." ~Publishers Weekly (added from Eventkeeper)
