Liz Prince - Tomboy: A Graphic Memoir
Green Apple Books on the Park, Friday, October 3 at 7pm
Please join Green Apple Books on Clement street on Friday, October 3rd at 7:00 p.m. as we host Liz Prince, who will be reading from her new young adult graphic novel Tomboy: A Graphic Memoir!

Facebook RSVP requested but not required

Growing up, Liz Prince wasn’t a girly girl, but she wasn’t exactly one of the guys either (as she learned when her little league baseball coach exiled her to the distant outfield). She was somewhere in between. But with the forces of middle school, high school, parents, friendship, and romance pulling her this way and that, the middle wasn’t exactly an easy place to be. Tomboy follows award-winning author and artist Liz Prince through her early years and explores—with humor, honesty, and poignancy—what it means to “be a girl.”

From staunchly refuting ”girliness” to the point of misogyny, to discovering through the punk community that your identity is whatever you make of it, Tomboy offers a sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking account of self-discovery in modern America.

"If you strip everything away, Tomboy is a classic coming-of-age-story. It's a story of figuring out not only who you are, but who you aren't. What gives Tomboy its utterly unique and enchanting charm is that the story centers around something more than just a prosaic recounting of Prince transitioning from girl to woman. While Prince is the central character in this autobiographical comic, the real main character is actually gender itself, as formed by contemporary American society." —Ray Suburbia (Maximum Rock N Roll)

✳“Prince explores what it means to be a Tomboy in a magnificently evocative graphic memoir….Simple, line-based art provides a perfect complement to her keen narration, giving this an indie, intimate feel and leaving readers feeling like they really know her. Liz’s story, captured with wry humor and a deft, visceral eye, is a must-read for fans who fell for Raina Telgemeier’s work in middle school. Spectacular; a book to make anyone think seriously about society’s preordained gender roles.” —Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

Oakland- Dennis McNally discusses and signs "On Highway 61"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Tuesday, October 7 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes author Dennis McNally to the store to discuss and sign his new book, On Highway 61, on Tuesday, October 7th at 7pm. On Highway 61 searches for the deeper roots of American cultural and musical evolution for the past 150 years by studying what Western European culture learned from African American culture in a historical progression that reaches from the minstrel era to Bob Dylan.

On Highway 61 starts with America's first great social critic, Henry David Thoreau, and his fundamental source of social philosophy: his profound commitment to freedom, to abolitionism, and to African-American culture. As the first post-Civil War generation of black Americans came of age, they introduced into the national culture a trio of musical forms that would dominate popular music to this day: ragtime, blues, and jazz Dennis McNally received his Ph.D. in American History from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1977 for a biography of Jack Kerouac titled Desolate Angel: Jack Kerouac, the Beat Generation, and America. He became the Grateful Dead's authorized biographer in 1980 and the band's publicist in 1984. In 2002, he published A Long Strange Trip/The Inside History of the Grateful Dead which made the New York Times bestseller list.
