Android's Dream

Androids Dream August 2014 Selection

Join us for a discussion of all things sci-fi, fantasy and horror at the Android's Dream Book Club. This book club meets on the first Thursday of every month, is free to join with no registration necessary. Hope to see you there.

Next Meeting: Thursday, September 4th @ 6:30pm

Discussing: The Princess Bride by William Golding Book Description:

William Goldman's modern fantasy classic is a simple, exceptional story about quests—for riches, revenge, power, and, of course, true love—that's thrilling and timeless.

Anyone who lived through the 1980s may find it impossible—inconceivable, even—to equate The Princess Bride with anything other than the sweet, celluloid romance of Westley and Buttercup, but the film is only a fraction of the ingenious storytelling you'll find in these pages. Rich in character and satire, the novel is set in 1941 and framed cleverly as an “abridged” retelling of a centuries-old tale set in the fabled country of Florin that's home to “Beasts of all natures and descriptions. Pain. Death. Brave men. Coward men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passions.”

Booksigning w/Stephanie Feldman
The Doylestown Bookshop, Saturday, September 6 at 12pm
The Angel of Losses Reading and Signing with Stephanie Feldman Saturday, September 6th 12:00 pm The Tiger's Wife meets A History of Love in this inventive, lushly imagined debut novel that explores the intersections of family secrets, Jewish myths, the legacy of war and history, and the bonds between sisters. When Eli Burke dies, he leaves behind a mysterious notebook full of stories about a magical figure named The White Rebbe, a miracle worker in league with the enigmatic Angel of Losses, protector of things gone astray, and guardian of the lost letter of the alphabet, which completes the secret name of God. When his granddaughter, Marjorie, discovers Eli's notebook, everything she thought she knew about her grandfather--and her family--comes undone. To find the truth about Eli's origins and unlock the secrets he kept, she embarks on an odyssey that takes her deep into the past, from 18th century Europe to Nazi-occupied Lithuania, and back to the present, to New York City and her estranged sister Holly, whom she must save from the consequences of Eli's past. Interweaving history, theology, and both real and imagined Jewish folktales, The Angel of Losses is a family story of what lasts, and of what we can--and cannot--escape. Advance Praise "Stephanie Feldman is one of the smartest and most original young writers at work today. Here she re-imagines the eternally exiled Wandering Jew as a wonderworker, a frightened boy in the Vilna ghetto, a feminist scholar in Coney Island. With a deft understanding of the irreducibility of human relationships, Stephanie leads us through love and loss and back to love again. Watch out for her. She is here to stay." —Sheri Holman, author of Witches on the Road Tonight and The Dress Lodger “This book was amazing. The protagonist, a grad student in literature, uncovers a story scribbled down by her grandfather, and everything starts to unravel. Jewish folklore. Family secrets. Hidden identities. Hidden notebooks. Bitter estrangements. The past–pasts–roaring up to meet the present… It’s beautifully constructed and just plain beautiful. Mark your calendars now, people. Mark them now. ” —BOOKRIOT Named as one of the “Essential Books Coming in 2014” by io9 About the Author I grew up in Philadelphia and studied writing at the University of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Arts, and Barnard College. I lived in New York City for 10 years before returning to the Philadelphia area with my husband and daughter. The Angel of Losses is my first novel.

Ward “Not only the greatest documentarian of the day, but also the most influential filmmaker period” (The Baltimore Sun), Ken Burns has opened the doors of American history for millions of people.

His documentaries include Baseball, Jazz, The Dustbowl, Brooklyn Bridge, and the landmark series The Civil War. His films have won 12 Emmy Awards and have twice been nominated for Oscars. A seven-part program that follows Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt for more than a century, Burns’s new series airs on PBS this fall. Geoffrey C. Ward, Burns’ longtime collaborator, is the principal writer of The Civil War, Jazz, Baseball, and 13 other of the director’s PBS documentaries. For his work he has won seven Emmy Awards. Ward is also author of A First-Class Temperament: The Emergence of Franklin Roosevelt, winner of the 1989 National Book Critics Circle Award for biography, as well as more than a dozen other books whose themes range from East Indian culture to Mark Twain.
