A Reading with Kelly Cogswell
Giovanni's Room, Thursday, April 24 at 5:30pm
Join us as activist and journalist Kelly Cogswell gives a reading from her new memoir, Eating Fire: My Life as a Lesbian Avenger.

At once streetwise and wistful, "Eating Fire" is a witty and urgent coming-of-age memoir spanning two decades, from the Culture War of the early 1990s to the War on Terror. Cogswell's story is an engaging blend of picaresque adventure, how-to activist handbook, and rigorous inquiry into questions of identity, resistance, and citizenship. It is also a compelling, personal recollection of friendships and fallings-out and of finding true love--several times over. After the Lesbian Avengers imploded, Cogswell describes how she became a pioneering citizen journalist, cofounding the "Gully" online magazine with the groundbreaking goal of offering "queer views on everything." The first in-depth account of the influential Lesbian Avengers, "Eating Fire" reveals the group's relationship to the queer art and activist scene in early '90s New York and establishes the media-savvy Avengers as an important precursor to groups such as Occupy Wall Street and La Barbe, in France. A rare insider's look at the process and perils of street activism, Kelly Cogswell's memoir is an uncompromising and ultimately empowering story of creative resistance against hatred and injustice.

Free Library of Philadelphia - Amartya Sen - An Uncertain Glory: India and its Contradictions
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Thursday, April 24 at 7:30pm
An uncertain glory: India and its Contradictions Amartya Sen Esteemed economist Amartya Sen received the Nobel Prize for his work on social choice theory, welfare economics, development economics, moral and political philosophy, and the economics of peace and war. With an impeccable record of advocacy for tolerance, pluralism, and harmony, he is credited with reintroducing ethics into economic discourse. A Professor at Harvard, Dr. Sen is the recipient of many honors, including the Bharat Ratna—the highest honor awarded by the President of India; the Eisenhower Medal; the French Legion of Honor; and the National Humanities Medal. His new book is “an urgent, passionate, political work” (New York Times Book Review), coauthored with longtime collaborator Jean Drèze, that makes clear the case that India—despite rapid economic growth—cannot move forward without making a significant investment in the essential needs of the people. Parkway Central Library 1901 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA 19103 (between 19th and 20th Streets on the Parkway) This is a TICKETED event; $15 General Admission, $7 Students.

Book Signing w/Lori Clipner Hynson & Gospel Choir Performance
The Doylestown Bookshop, Friday, April 25 at 6:30pm
SuperGal vs. GOD Friday, April 25th at 6:30pm Book Signing with Lori Clipner Hynson with a gospel performance by The Second Baptist Church of Doylestown Mass Choir and The Back Bench Boys Secrets of a Recovering SuperGal Revealed New book for those women who know they can do anything, but feel the need to do everything! One woman’s page-turning, epic journey from SuperGal to surrender and redemption SuperGal—dynamo, achiever, well-organized, a community leader, and supremely independent. A fixer, she spent thirty-one years trying to hold together her teenage marriage and two kids, attempting to be all things to all people and trying to pursue her dreams. She was SuperGal to the world; a Shadow Face at home. Now, alone for the first time in her life, she cherished her newfound freedom from emotional bondage. 2 parts memoir, 1 part fiction, a jigger of love story and dollop of humor, SuperGal vs. GOD (Broken Shoe Press, July 2013) by Lori Hynson is the story of a woman who thought she could handle her own life, and the rest of the world, all by herself. Hynson wasn’t looking for love until the moment she was surprised by a gift of love she never saw coming. From a sweet man who began to paint for her the canvas of how love should look. She had no idea. Slowly, her icy fears melted away. But within weeks, joy turned to despair when he fell desperately ill. Then he got worse, then even worse and stayed that way. In typical SuperGal fashion, she rolled up her sleeves and went to work. She would fix this, too. She simply had to, and she would do it all on her own. She couldn’t bear to lose him now, not after waiting her whole life. God wanted her to turn to Him for help and to trust Him. But she wouldn’t and couldn’t. She hardly knew Him because he was only a Sunday Acquaintance. This SuperGal could handle anything that life threw her way. Until she couldn’t. Until she utterly failed. Until finally, God had her right where He wanted her. Through rage, despair, messengers, and miracles, SuperGal learned the hard way that Someone had a better plan. Someone was knocking who had the answer she needed and she only had to open the door. Taking on immense responsibility, organizing major events and working herself ragged was a regular occurrence for Hynson. That is, until her "super powers" failed, and she realized it wasn’t her job to run this planet. With this realization, and giving her life to God, came a major release. Through her own profound experience and "recovery," Hynson helps other SuperGals make this realization as well—that they needn’t feel responsible for the whole world because in the end even SuperGals can’t control life’s events. They can learn to ditch their own bootstraps and reach for God’s hand instead. "I have a strong desire to reach women, just like me, who are struggling to hold all the pieces of their lives in place and are overburdened and overwhelmed by everyday life," says Hynson. "I want to help them drop the ball-and-chain of guilt over circumstances they can’t control, and decrease the worry and fear in their lives. She wants to help women travel from stressed to blessed - one surrender at a time! About the Author Lori Hynson, "SuperGal Stress Whisperer – From Stressed to Blessed" is a first-time author of SuperGal vs. GOD. As a Recovering SuperGalaholic, she is an expert in recognizing how futile it all is. She speaks into the heart of the woman who knows she can do anything, but feels the pressure to do everything! A former marketing executive, Lori knows the ropes to help women climb out of the chasm of control and self-reliance, and to learn to trust God instead. Fueled by her passion to inspire women who struggle to do too much, Lori shares her SuperGal Recovery secrets. With humor, song, bare-it-all-honesty, and a sincere love for Jesus Christ, Lori reaches out to hurting and overburdened women to encourage them to surrender to God. She wants to help them realize IT'S NOT THEIR JOB TO RUN THIS PLANET! Lori is a wife, mother, Nana and retired business owner. Not to mention singer, ballet teacher and university cheerleading coach. Oh, and (deep breath) major event planner, local politician, community leader and inexhaustible go-getter. She is still most of these things. But first and foremost, she's a huge fan of Jesus Christ! Lori and and her husband have five grown children and eleven grandchildren, and live in Pennsylvania.

Philadelphia Area Highly Sensitive Persons Group
The Doylestown Bookshop, Saturday, April 26 at 11am
Philadelphia Area Highly Sensitive Persons Group

Saturday, April 26th at 11:00 AM One of the members of this meetup, Damian, attended a weekend seminar for HSPs put on by Elaine Aron. One of the topics she covered was the latest research on the HSP trait. Damian has offered to pass on to us what he learned at that presentation. Come join us at our monthly meeting to discuss the trait of High Sensitivity. Based on Elaine Aron's book, "The Highly Sensitive Person", we'll delve into the gifts and challenges of the Highly Sensitive Person. Since the group is based on the work of Elaine Aron, to participate in this group we require that you take the HSP quiz located in Elaine Aron's book , "The Highly Sensitive Person" or on her website hsperson.com. We also require that you read "The Highly Sensitive Person" before being approved as a member of this group. Elaine is known for saying that at least once in your life you should have the experience of being in "a room full of us". Typically HSPs do not look forward to going to social events, especially when the people and the space is unknown. However most HSP's who find their way to our meetup are very grateful to be with us. There is a sense of quiet, deep respect and unspoken connection which is palpable. Being together in one place helps us to feel the exquisiteness of our trait of sensitivity and therefore we can recognize it within ourselves as a gift and do the self-care which we need to do to accommodate for the challenging situations we often find ourselves in.

Julia "Jules" Ordway - Book Signing "Goodbye Jesse"
The Doylestown Bookshop, Saturday, April 26 at 1pm
Book Signing with

Julia Ordway

Goodbye Jesse Saturday, April 26th 1:00pm The author, Julia "Jules" Ordway, is 12 years old and the daughter of Jules Thin Crust creators and owners John & Jan Ordway. Julia wrote the book entirely by herself and published it through Lulu's Self Publishing website. Proceeds from this event will benefit Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Goodbye Jesse is about a 12 year old girl who loses her best friend to cancer. The book is based on the loss of Julia's dog, Jessie to cancer. The JULES story was born out of a passion for good food, family and a love of community. John and Jan Ordway, finding a scarcity of restaurants to take their young girls, decided to open their own place. A spacious, modern and comfortable space where healthy, organic food would be paramount, community involvement important and where employees would have a fun and positive place to work… and unlike anything you have come to expect in the world of fast food.

And it’s a story told with pizza – one hot, thin, crispy crust, topped with locally-sourced, organic products, at a time.

Happy @ Work - Book Launch with Jim Donovan
The Doylestown Bookshop, Saturday, April 26 at 6pm
Happy @ Work: 60 Simple Ways to Stay Engaged and Be Successful

Book Launch with

Jim Donovan

Saturday, April 26th

6:00 - 8:00pm Even in a tight economy, job satisfaction shouldn’t be considered a luxury; fulfilled, happy employees are productive, innovative, and loyal. And because employed Americans work more hours than those in most industrialized countries, workplace fulfillment spills over into families and communities. Jim Donovan, a small business owner, consultant, and speaker, has worked with employees and employers for 25 years. In that time he has tested and honed these shift-producing strategies. From managing time, making decisions, and marking milestones to breaking patterns, bouncing back, and becoming exceptional, each tip’s method and rationale is clearly explained and illustrated by a real workplace vignette. Each tool empowers with the knowledge that no matter the circumstance, employees can think, act, and feel in ways that create purpose, success, and, yes, happiness. About the Author Jim Donovan speaks regularly to employees and executives at small business and large corporations. He is a frequent media guest and expert source on personal development, business success, and the spiritual laws that develop both. He lives in Buckingham, PA. http://www.jimdonovan.com/ All our in-store events are free and open to the public.

The Teen Book Club April Selection

Next Meeting: Sunday, April 27th @ 2:00pm

Discussing: More Than This by Patrick Ness Book Description:

From two-time Carnegie Medal winner Patrick Ness comes an enthralling and provocative new novel chronicling the life — or perhaps afterlife — of a teen trapped in a crumbling, abandoned world.

A boy named Seth drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments, losing his life as the pounding sea claims him. But then he wakes. He is naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. How is that possible? He remembers dying, his bones breaking, his skull dashed upon the rocks. So how is he here? And where is this place? It looks like the suburban English town where he lived as a child, before an unthinkable tragedy happened and his family moved to America. But the neighborhood around his old house is overgrown, covered in dust, and completely abandoned. What’s going on? And why is it that whenever he closes his eyes, he falls prey to vivid, agonizing memories that seem more real than the world around him? Seth begins a search for answers, hoping that he might not be alone, that this might not be the hell he fears it to be, that there might be more than just this. . . .

An evening of listening to stories from Giovanni's Room and the Trans Oral History Project and discussing the importance and practice of radical archiving
Giovanni's Room, Monday, April 28 at 7:30pm
Join us for an evening of listening to stories from Giovanni's Room and the Trans Oral History Project and discussing the importance and practice of radical archiving.

The Trans Oral History Project is a community based effort to collect and distribute the diverse stories of Transgender people. With a national network and local community cores in Philadelphia and Chicago the TOHP has collected over 50 stories in 12 states. The TOHP believes that trans folks telling the stories of our own communities is crucial to re-framing the stereotypes and misconceptions that exist about the trans community. The TOHP distributes stories though an online story bank, a zine distro, community workshops and most recently, a youth educators toolkit, I Live for Trans Education. Stories from our archives are available online at

Free Library of Philadelphia - Ralph Nader - Unstoppable: The Emerging Right-Left Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Tuesday, April 29 at 7:30pm
Unstoppable: The Emerging Right Left Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State Ralph Nader Ralph Nader “singlehandedly sparked a new era of citizen-driven political and consumer activism (Publishers Weekly) and is largely responsible for major federal consumer protection laws such as the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, and the Freedom of Information Act. His scathing critique of the American auto industry, Unsafe at Any Speed, was instrumental in the passage of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Nader has written a score of popular books and has been a five-time third-party Presidential candidate. His new book calls for bipartisan grassroots activism in the face of corporate influence in American politics.

A Reading with H.L. Sudler
Giovanni's Room, Saturday, May 3 at 1pm
Join us as H.L. Sudler reads from his forthcoming release, Summerville.

"It's summertime in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and everything is beautiful. The town, the weather, the ocean, the people. For four months this seaside community becomes a playground for vacationers seeking to soak up all the fun the town has to offer. But this summer will be different, when devastating secrets threaten to destroy a family and nearly everyone they will come to know. A fugitive murderer, a wayward socialite, a deceptive med student, and a destructive sociopath all set the stage for a combustive summer. One filled with sex, lies, secrets, betrayals, vendettas, and a revenge that will scandalize this town beyond anyone's imagination. From Miami Beach to Rehoboth Beach and from Cinco de Mayo to Labor Day, a trail of blood and destruction will snake its way through the lives of a select group of individuals who will become forever connected by the depth of hatred and the stain of murder."

Summerville is available in paperback and eBook at Giovanni's Room and online April 3, 2014.
