The Moneymaker Effect -The Moment that Changed Poker w/Eric Raskin
The Doylestown Bookshop, Saturday, July 26 at 5pm
THE MOMENT THAT CHANGED POKER - FOREVER!

Book Signing with

Eric Raskin

Saturday, July 26th @ 5:00pm Chris Moneymaker, a 27-year-old amateur poker player with a name no one could believe was real, defied the odds at every turn to win the World Series of Poker Main Event, at the precise moment the twin inventions of online poker and the hole-card camera combined to revolutionize the game. One of history's greatest underdog stories lit the fuse. Millions of people around the world couldn't look away. Poker exploded. More than a decade later, the Moneymaker story continues to reverberate and the poker community still can't stop talking about it. Those who were there and had their lives changed by the 2003 World Series tell the story best and in The Moneymaker Effect, more than 30 of them--poker pros, television executives, producers, journalists, publicists, an inventor, a screenwriter, a sports handicapper, and of course, the champion himself--bring back the memories of the Moneymaker miracle. About the author Eric Raskin Though this is Eric Raskin’s first book, he’s no stranger to covering poker: He has been the editor-in-chief of ALL IN magazine and its website allinmag.com since 2005. He has been to the World Series of Poker five times as a member of the media, and though he has never bought into an actual WSOP event, he did eliminate Anthony Michael Hall on the very first hand of the WSOP media/celebrity charity tournament in 2006. He is also comfortably in the black as a small-stakes online-poker player. Eric is a contributing writer to countless magazines and websites, including Grantland.com, Playboy, ESPN The Magazine, ESPN.com, and HBO.com. When he’s not writing or editing poker articles, the majority of his work focuses on boxing. He is a six-time Boxing Writers Association of America award winner. All our in-store events are free and open to the public. There is parking available in the lot behind the store and in the surrounding neighborhood.Click here for parking information http://www.doylestownborough.net/visitors/parking.

Discussing: The Strange And Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavander by Leslye Walton Description:

Magical realism, lyrical prose, and the pain and passion of human love haunt this hypnotic generational saga. Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava — in all other ways a normal girl — is born with the wings of a bird. In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naive to the twisted motives of others. Others like the pious Nathaniel Sorrows, who mistakes Ava for an angel and whose obsession with her grows until the night of the summer solstice celebration. That night, the skies open up, rain and feathers fill the air, and Ava’s quest and her family’s saga build to a devastating crescendo. First-time author Leslye Walton has constructed a layered and unforgettable mythology of what it means to be born with hearts that are tragically, exquisitely human.

A Discussion with Sandra Moran
Giovanni's Room, Thursday, July 31 at 5:30pm
Join us as we host acclaimed author Sandra Moran to discuss the making of her new award-winning book Letters Never Sent.

"The story unfolds like a flower; the impact of it on each person is profound. It’s a spectacular offering of love gained, lost, and struggled with over a lifetime—a poignant tale with a marvelous reveal at the end." —Anna Furtado, Lambda Literary Review

"Letters Never Sent is a crisp, well-written story that is chock full of strong imagery, indelible characters, and conflict that almost any woman can relate to in one way or another. Her transitions between the past and present work seamlessly, and she is able to capture the floodwaters of joy, love, heartbreak, and sorrow with unhurried profundity." -- Salem West, The Rainbow Reader

Letters Never Sent is the winner of the 2013 Rainbow Award for Best Lesbian Historical Fiction and the 2013 Rainbow Award for Best Lesbian Debut Novel. It was also a runner-up for the Best Lesbian Novel. Letters Never Sent is a finalist for the Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction in the 26th Annual Triangle Awards.

Sandra will give a reading from the book and discuss the research that went into the book, including a study of the political atmosphere of the 1930s, '40s, and '50s.

Letters Never Sent is available in paperback for $16.95 here:http://www.queerbooks.com/book/9781939562104

Discussing: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Phillip K. Dick Book Description:

THE INSPIRATION FOR Bladerunner. . .

Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? was published in 1968. Grim and foreboding, even today it is a masterpiece ahead of its time.

By 2021, the World War had killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remained coveted any living creature, and for people who couldn't afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacrae: horses, birds, cats, sheep. . . They even built humans.

Emigrées to Mars received androids so sophisticated it was impossible to tell them from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans could wreak, the government banned them from Earth. But when androids didn't want to be identified, they just blended in.

Rick Deckard was an officially sanctioned bounty hunter whose job was to find rogue androids, and to retire them. But cornered, androids tended to fight back, with deadly results.
