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)

Premier Event: Vikram Chandra in conversation with Nick Taylor

Friday, October 3, 7:30 p.m.

Geek Sublime: The Beauty of Code, the Code of Beauty Tickets are available at Kepler's and online at Brown Paper Tickets.

"Computing has transformed all our lives, but the processes and culture which produce software remain largely opaque, alien, unknown...Whenever I tell one of my fellow authors that I supported myself through the writing of my first novel by working as a programmer and a computer consultant, I evoke a response that mixes bemusement, bafflement, and a touch of awe, as if I'd just said that I could levitate...Many programmers, on the other hand, regard themselves as artists." - Vikram Chandra

We’re thrilled to see Vikram Chandra’s Geek Sublime getting so much positive news coverage from The New York Times Sunday Book Review, The Guardian, the San Francisco Chronicle, and more!! This book truly has something for everyone: it offers a textured history of the tech industry both in the United States and India tracing the evolution of modern programming and corresponding social and cultural politics. He ponders many questions including: How do we approach computer code as an aesthetic object? What makes beautiful code? How is code similar to poetry? What ideological work is performed by the tech industry? How did programming become gendered male in the U.S.? And his prose, stunning and accessible!!!

Vikram Chandra is the author of three works of fiction, most recently Sacred Games, which won the Hutch Crossword Award for English Fiction for 2006 and a Salon Book Award for 2007; it was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction, was included on numerous “Best of the Year” lists and received lavish critical acclaim. He is the co-writer of the well-known film "Mission Kashmir", and the New Yorker named him one of "India's leading novelists." His novels have been translated into nineteen languages. Vikram worked with John Barth at Johns Hopkins and with Donald Barthelme at the University of Houston. Chandra currently divides his time between Mumbai and Berkeley, California, where he teaches creative writing at the University of California.

Nick Taylor is the author of the historical novels The Disagreement and Father Junípero's Confessor. He has also published a thriller, The Setup Man, under the pseudonym T.T. Monday.

Here are some great reviews of Geek Sublime as well as an interview with Vikram Chandra!

The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma

Renowned trauma expert Bessel van der Kolk has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, he transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain’s wiring—and how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, mindfulness techniques, play, yoga, and other therapies. Based on Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score offers proven alternatives to drugs and talk therapy—and a way to reclaim lives.

Bessel A. van der Kolk, M.D. has been active as a clinician, researcher and teacher in the area of posttraumatic stress and related phenomena since the 1970s. He is the founder and medical director of the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts, and director of the National Complex Trauma Treatment Network.

Lazarillo De Tormes by Anónimo

La vida del Lazarillo De Tormes, y de sus fortunas y adversidades, se pública por primera vez en 1554 cuando España era un imperio bajo la monarquía de Carlos V. El humorismo, la ironía, el chiste, la burla y la parodia constituyen en su conjunto la clave de esta historia. Considerada una de las joyas de la literatura española, esta obra nos cuenta la vida y las aventuras de un pícaro: El Lazarillo De Tormes. La moraleja en la vida, fortunas y adversidades del Lazarillo es que no hay que tomarse en serio el poder político independientemente de su origen profano o sagrado.
