Joseph Fox Bookshop, Tuesday, September 23 at 7:30pm
Event: A Philosophical Journey Through A Concept Slavoj Zizek “The most dangerous philosopher in the West” (The New Republic), Slovenian Slavoj Zizek is a towering figure in Marxist ideology, psychoanalysis, and social theory. The author of dozens of books and articles and the subject of a score of interviews and documentaries, his best known volumes in English include The Sublime Object of Ideology and First as Tragedy, Then as Farce. “The Elvis of cultural theory” (Chronicle of Higher Education), Zizek adopts a radical style in his newspaper op-eds and academic works, which has earned him an international following and relevancy. His new book asks fundamental questions about what is really happening when an Event occurs, whether Events are interconnected, and if we are really agents of our own fates. Parkway Central Library 1901 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA 19103 (between 19th and 20th Streets on the Parkway) This is a FREE Event; no tickets or reservations are required.

Local Author Spotlight
The Doylestown Bookshop, Saturday, September 27 at 00am
Local Author Spotlight Saturday, September 27th J. F. Althouse 12:00 pm Jordan Wright, former Navy Seal turned architect, has made the discovery of a lifetime. An ancient carving on a sea cliff in Peru points the way to Egypt, where a buried chamber may be hidden beneath the Pyramids of Giza. Legend claims the chamber contains the priceless artifacts and history of mankind dating back to the dawn of time. Joined by a team of archeologists and funded by a mysterious benefactor, Jordan travels to Egypt, where he discovers more than he bargained for: a portal to a long forgotten time. He is marooned in the Second Age of Man - the Age of Atlantis. Hailed as a prophet, he is thrown into the midst of a brutal war of epic proportions. There he must not only fight for the lives of his companions, but quite possibly the survival of the human race. About the Author Jack grew up in Central Bucks Country, graduated from Central Bucks West Highschool. He is a practicing architect with an active firm in Northern Montgomery County serving clients nationwide and in other countries. He has traveled extensively and twice with George Erikson (In Search of Atlantis Discovery Channel and National Geographic). His contributions to archeology include theories on the location of the ancient library of Egypt, underwater exploration of ancient sites in the British Virgin Islands, and an analysis of universal pyramid architecture and the possibility they were built to provide safe shelter and higher ground during frequent tidal waves, earthquake, and fallout impacts from distant meteorite strikes. He continues work on his seven book series. Second Sight and Second Birth are the first two novels in the series. Jack speaks fluent German and has been invited to the Nurmburger Museum to discuss his discovery of advanced knowledge of Antartica on an early globe in the museum, depicting the continent 250 years before it was discovered and accurately showing it ice free as it looked 8000 years ago. For more information pleae visit: http://jfalthouse.com/ Karen Polis 12:00pm Ten miracles tell the story of a Polish Jewish boy who survived the horror of the Holocaust and went on to create a life for himself in America. Arthur Neigut was a normal, happy 13-year-old boy living in Kraków Poland in 1939 when Nazi soldiers herded him onto a truck with the rest of his family and sent him to a Jewish ghetto. For the next six years, Arthur lived inside a nightmare. While building airplanes for the Nazis, he endured the life of a concentration camp inmate. This is his story, not just of his miraculous survival, but also of how he was left after the war with a surprisingly happy and optimistic outlook on life that is with him to this day. About the Author Karen Polis has been writing since childhood, but this is her first full-length published work. Karen is Arthur Neigut’s niece. For more information please visit http://moseswaswatchingoverme.com/ Nicole Maddalo Dixon 2:00pm Precocious, spirited, bored, and outspoken, sixteen year old Elucia (Lucy) Grey Alexis Howard, is both out-of-place in and a prisoner of her wealthy life amongst the highest of New York's social elite and her father's ambitious pursuit of greater prosperity. Sent out west in 1877 to Lincoln County, New Mexico, to marry her pre-contracted fiance, John H. Tunstall, Lucy is inconsolable at the prospect of a loveless marriage when she meets and falls in love with pistoleer, Billy Bonney, a young, vivacious firebrand hired by John to work his land and provide protection from the dangers posed by John's nefarious competitor, J. J. Dolan and the entire Santa Fe Ring. When John pays the ultimate price and is murdered, refusing to succumb to the opposition and intimidation of his rivals, Lucy's own life is then in jeopardy. As a result of John's death, Billy and the other men working in John's employment are deputized to combat the tyranny of Dolan and the Ring. Fearing for Lucy, the newly deputized Lincoln County Regulators take her into their protective guard and into the hellfire of what becomes known as the Lincoln County War, the catalyst that inspires Lucy to wage her own personal war for freedom from her oppressive life and a desperate attempt to stay close to the man she loves, the boy about to become known to history as the incendiary notorious outlaw, Billy the Kid. Includes Readers Guide. About the Author Nicole was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and now lives with her husband in Bucks County, PA. For more information please visit www.nicolemdixonauthor.com Michael-Patrick Harrington 2:00pm Welcome to Mondauk County, where the past is never truly past. Sweater Girl and Other Tales of Mondauk County is a collection of novellas and stories that explore the condition of morbid nostalgia: being so bound to the past that it poisons the present and chokes the future. In the novella “Sweater Girl,” a man combs through the ashes of a teenage party that took place forty years ago, looking for clues to what had transpired, including arson, an amputation, and the death of his father, while obsessing on the party’s catalyst, an enthralling young sweater girl. Plus…a retired romance novelist faces her fears of intimacy in a most radical fashion…a cult member becomes consumed with an underage girl…a loner signs up for a spelling bee to impress a popular girl on the eve of an assault on the school…as a weary detective hunts the Red Ribbon Killer, a grandmother confronts the secret in her shed…an ex-boxer squares off against a mob capo when his wife disappears…a man finds a radio broadcasting from his past in the abandoned Divine Lorraine Hotel…and after his hand gets stuck to a girl’s hair with paste, a giant of a boy is hunted by a vengeful mob. About the Author My childhood was fraught with terror, being forced to play outside by my mother ("sun's out, you're out"), made to stay up way past bed time to watch old movies by my grandmother, and being told to "eat it or wear it" by my Aunt El at dinnertime. My mother lessened the blows by buying me my first 45 records—and giving me a typewriter. I wrote my first short story in 2nd grade, got a black eye from my sister in 3rd grade, grew peach fuzz on my upper lip in 5th grade, kissed a girl in 10th grade, but never broke any bones. I was hijacked in grade school by Twain and Tolkien, and in college I was knocked out by Woolf, Hemingway, and Faulkner. I never recovered. I have multiple sclerosis, and although the disease has enabled me to appreciate the very color of the sky and the sound of Chuck Berry's guitar and the way a good book smells, I'm not really happy about the whole thing.

Cradles To Crayons Donation Drive 2014
The Doylestown Bookshop, Saturday, September 27 at 12pm
Cradles to Crayons Donation Drive Saturday, September 27th 12:00-3:00pm Now in its seventh year, Shire’s BIG GIVE is a massive collection drive that benefits Cradles to Crayons, a non-profit organization in West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania that connects communities that have with communities that need. Shire’s BIG GIVE on September 26 and 27 is a wide-spread regional effort with coordinated collection drives in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties in southeastern Pennsylvania. The generosity and support of both Shire employees and our community residents make successful drives possible. Who – You and other caring folks: families, friends, schools, sports teams, businesses, community groups – all are invited. Spread the word! What – Bring new and nearly new children’s books, clothing, coats, shoes, toys, baby equipment, batteries, and school supplies for children aged 0-12. Where – Donations will be collected across the Greater Philadelphia region at convenient drop off locations near you – see the collection sites listed below. How - You bring the donations. We collect, sort, and distribute these basic essentials, free of charge, to thousands of area kids who need them most. Cradles to Crayons is dedicated to serving poor and/or low-income children with essential items they need to thrive. Since its inception in 2008, the BIG GIVE has collected enough items to help 27,000 children in need through Cradles to Crayons. “We definitely see the need growing in the suburbs,” said Michal Smith, Executive Director of Cradles to Crayons. “Poverty among children is the highest it has been in 50 years. In the suburbs, poverty is increasing twice as fast as it is in Philadelphia.” Shire’s special goal this year is to collect children’s picture and literature books to give 3,000 children the pride of having a book of their own and hopefully instill a love of reading in these youngsters for whom books are a luxury. The collection is especially targeting books suitable for children age 3 and younger or between ages 9 and 12, two age groups in which the need is especially high. “We rely on Shire’s BIG GIVE to provide us with much-needed items in our high-demand fall and winter months, and this year, we expect the results to be bigger and better than ever,” says Smith. “This is a fantastic opportunity to show what can happen when an entire region comes together for a great cause.” BIG GIVE Collection Sites across Greater Philadelphia Main Collection Center – Friday 12-7pm and Saturday 10-4pm Wayne, Chester County: Wilson Farm Park (Chesterbrook exit off Rt. 202) Sites collecting on Saturday: West Chester, Chester County: Chester County Government Service Building Lot (601 Westtown Road, Westtown, PA 19382) Ft.

Free Library of Philadelphia - Charles Blow - Fire Shut Up in My Bones
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Tuesday, September 30 at 7:30pm
Fire shut up in my bones Charles Blow New York Times columnist Charles Blow is renowned for his visual arguments that feature charts and essays as a unique form of opinion journalism. He is also a regular commentator on CNN, MSNBC, and the BBC, among other networks. The Root magazine recently named him the 11th most influential African American in the world. A departure from his usual style and subject matter, Fire shut up in my bones is a memoir of Blow’s difficult childhood in a small Louisiana town. Though he eventually escaped his hometown, he found it more difficult to escape the deeper legacy of slavery, family demons, and violence.
