PREMIER EVENT: TIM SHRIVER
Kepler's Books, Wednesday, December 3 at 7:30pm
Premier Event: Tim Shriver

Wednesday, December 3, 7:30 p.m.

Fully Alive: Discovering What Matters Most Tickets are available at Kepler's and online at Brown Paper Tickets

Remember when you believed you could actually change the world? Perhaps you imagined, as Timothy Shriver did, that the world could be changed “into a place of love and mystery and eternity.” The son of Eunice Kennedy and Sargent Shriver, founder of the Special Olympics, and nephew of John, Robert and Ted Kennedy, Timothy was born to families who have spent their lives advocating for people on the margins, inspired largely by Tim’s aunt Rosemary who was born with intellectual disabilities. Join us for an evening with Tim as he reveals how his meetings with world icons and cultural leaders such as Nelson Mandela, and through his own work with the Special Olympics, he changed his life from one focused on power, to a life of humility and vulnerability.

Tim Shriver’s new book, Fully Alive: Discovering What Matters Most, is at once a memoir and a roadmap for a life that is radically different and inspiring. This new life is inspired by the time he has dedicated to people with intellectual disabilities as chairman of the Special Olympics and co-founder of the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), the leading research organization in the United States in the field of social and emotional learning. Is disability to be feared or welcomed, pitied or purged? Shriver argues that we all have different abilities and challenges we should embrace. Here we see how those who appear powerless have turned this seeming shortcoming into a power of their own, and we learn that we are all totally vulnerable and valuable at the same time.

Support the Special Olympics by buying a Premier Ticket; Tim is donating all of his proceeds from the book to the organization.

Pull on your PJs and bring your teddy bear to the bookstore! Author Jon Agee will be here to read you a bedtime story. Get cozy in front of the fireplace, listen to a story or two, have some milk and cookies, get your books signed, and then head home for bed.Everyone knows Santa Claus: his merry laugh, his fashionable winterwear, his penchant for milk and cookies, his teams of elves and reindeer who assist him in his mammoth, once-a-year task. But what we don't know is how Santa became Santa. For example, did you know about his siblings: Larry, Mary, Willy, Millie, Joey, and Zoe? Or that his unique method of entry, chimney-sliding, is because it's fun? Just in time for the holiday season, Jon Agee's delightful new book shows us what Santa was like as a child. Jon Agee is the creator of many acclaimed books for children, including the New York Times Best Illustrated Book Terrific, and ALA Notable Books Milo's Hat Trick and The Incredible Painting of Felix Clousseau. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, Audrey, and their Havanese puppy, Charlotte.

RICHARD FORD

Richard Ford

Friday, December 5, 7:30 p.m.

Let Me Be Frank With You

A brilliant new work that returns Richard Ford to the hallowed territory that sealed his reputation as an American master: the world of Frank Bascombe, and the landscape of his celebrated novels The Sportswriter, the Pulitzer Prize and PEN/Faulkner winning Independence Day, and The Lay of the Land.

In his trio of world-acclaimed novels portraying the life of an entire American generation, Richard Ford has imagined one of the most indelible and widely discussed characters in modern literature, Frank Bascombe. Through Bascombe—protean, funny, profane, wise, often inappropriate—we’ve witnessed the aspirations, sorrows, longings, achievements and failings of an American life in the twilight of the twentieth century.

Now, in Let Me Be Frank With You, Ford reinvents Bascombe in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. In four richly luminous narratives, Bascombe (and Ford) attempts to reconcile, interpret and console a world undone by calamity. It is a moving and wondrous and extremely funny odyssey through the America we live in at this moment. Ford is here again working with the maturity and brilliance of a writer at the absolute height of his powers.

Time reborn: From the Crisis in Physics to the Future of the Universe by Lee Smolin

"If you are looking for a bracing alternative vision of physics built from the ground up, Smolin's "Time reborn" will take you to the mountaintop." -- NPR.

Smolin's groundbreaking theory postulates that physical laws can evolve over time and the future is not yet determined. Newton's fundamental laws may not remain so fundamental." Time reborn" serves as a popular primer and investigation of time, both what it is and how the true nature of it impacts our world.

"One of the essential books of the twenty-first century . . . Smolin provides a much-needed dose of clarity about time, with implications that go far beyond physics to economics, politics, and personal philosophy." -- Jaron Lanier, author of You Are Not a Gadget.

Frank Portman
Book Passage, Monday, December 15 at 6pm
Frank Portman (Andromeda Klein, King Dork, King Dork Approximately)

“Why did you decide to write a Young Adult Novel?” That's usually the first question you get when someone learns you have written a book like King Dork. One way to respond is to say: "I've only written the one book. But I've read… several." Said in the right way, it can be pretty funny. You pause, make your eyes go a bit wry, yet serious, and slightly emphasize the word "several." See, "several" sounds like too few books to have read when you're going around saying you're an author. But of course, the questioner thinks, he could be kidding. Couldn't he? If things go according to plan, the next question will be: "What is your favorite book you've ever read?" You can answer with a question of your own: "you mean all the way through?" Then look a bit stumped. With any luck, the original question will have been forgotten by then, and you can go back to whatever you were doing.But I'm going to break with my usual policy here and be perfectly honest: the reason for trying to wriggle out of that question by acting like an idiot is that I don't know the answer. It's not like I "decided" to write a YA novel. The way it happened was, I had misspent pretty much my entire life writing songs for my punk rock band. I had a cult following. One former cult member became a literary agent when he grew up (they do that sometimes - grow up, I mean) and he had the idea that the sort of characters, themes, and turns of phrase that pop up in my songs of arrested adolescent angst might make a pretty good book. I was skeptical but I said I'd give it a shot. I procrastinated for a long, long time. Then one day I started typing and, somehow, through a process I neither understand nor even really remember all that well, the stuff I was typing turned into a novel about a teenager. And, voilà, (if, voilà is the right word), I became a YA novelist. Actually, voilà is definitely not the right word, because it took almost two years in the end, and it was kind of hard. It was like watching grass grow while hitting your head against a rock.To continue the unfamiliar technique of being perfectly honest, I'll admit something else: I have, in fact, read a lot more than several YA novels. Like many kids with no friends, I spent a whole lot of time reading. I mean, books were my friends, and I would commune with them in the hallowed halls of my Imagination. Not really - that was a kind of joke. But I had a lot of time on my hands, and what else are you going to do when there's nothing on TV? Like most people, I began flirting with the YA genre by reading the sexy books that I was supposed to be too young for, particularly the ones about girls (there weren't actually all that many sexy ones concerning boys) as a kind of research project for a potential future career as a Great Lover of Women. Most of what I imagined I learned about girls and human relationships from these books, admittedly, turned out to be almost wholly inaccurate, but never mind. Then, when I was the age you're supposed to be when you read teen lit, I tended to avoid it and read "adult books" and "classics" instead. Then as an older teenager, I worked at the local public library. That job was, once again, like being a kid with no friends, in that I tended to have a lot of time on my hands. So, for something to do in the down time, I assigned myself a little project of reading every book in the Children's Fiction section, from beginning to end, in alphabetical order. I didn't love them all, but I loved a lot of them. (My favorites were darker, psychological studies like those of Robert Cormier, or ultra-wacky stuff like Ellen Raskin—but I gave everything a shot.) I continued to read YA books through my alleged adulthood. And now I read them not only for enjoyment and what I think they call "enrichment," but also out of professional interest, i.e., checking out the competition. I have been too young, too old, then way too old, but in a lifetime of doing things I'm technically not supposed to do, few forbidden experiences have been as powerful, as inspiring, or as cool as this habit of always reading the wrong books. And now I'm writing them, too. Long live age-inappropriateness. (added from Random House)… (more)
