Clint Hill
Barnes & Noble Booksellers - 82nd & Broadway, Wednesday, November 26 at 7pm
Clint Hill is a retired United States Secret Service agent who will forever be remembered for his courageous actions in the presidential motorcade during the John F. Kennedy assassination. Assigned to protect Jacqueline Kennedy, Hill remained with Mrs. Kennedy and the children for one year after the tragedy. Proudly and humbly serving five presidents—Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford—Hill rose through the ranks of the most elite protective force in the world, during the tumultuous time that encompassed the Vietnam War, the assassinations of JFK, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy, and Watergate. He retired in 1975 as Assistant Director, United States Secret Service, responsible for all protective forces. In 2012, he penned his remarkable memoir, Mrs. Kennedy and Me, which became a #1 New York Times bestseller. (added from Simon & Schuster)… (more)

A woman of the Left who garners praise from Noam Chomsky and Greg Palast at the same time as she is quoted respectfully in Forbes and the Wall Street Journal, economist Loretta Napoleoni has been an advisor to national governments while being one of the harshest of critics of the underlying principles and policies of the current world banking system. Napoleoni’s books, including Rogue economics: Capitalism's New Reality (a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2008) and Terror Incorporated: Tracing the Money Behind Global Terrorism, have been international bestsellers and are translated into eighteen foreign languages. A longtime activist, a former Fulbright Scholar at Johns Hopkins’ Paul H. Nitze School, a Rotary Scholar at the London School of Economics, and chair of the Club de Madrid countering terrorism financing group, Napoleoni has traveled widely in the Middle East and around the world. Her essays and columns have appeared in the Chicago Tribune, La Stampa, La Repubblica, El País, and Le Monde.

The Drama Book Shop, Thursday, December 4 at 6pm
Thursday December 4th, 2014, at 6:00 p.m. Playwright and screenwriter Laura Eason: Discussion and Book Signing (FREE) Event Description: Laura Eason will talk about her theatre career, her transition from playwriting to TV writing and her play Sex with Strangers recently produced at Second Stage in New York.

Laura Eason is the author of twenty plays (original work and adaptation), a musical book writer and a screenwriter. Her play THE UNDENIABLE SOUND OF RIGHT NOW will be produced in NYC in March 2015 in a Rattlestick Playwrights Theater and Women’s Project Theater co-production. Recent productions include: SEX WITH STRANGERS (2ST, NYC; Steppenwolf Theatre, Chicago; Sydney Theatre, AU; Signature Theatre, DC; published by Overlook Press); THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER (Hartford Stage, CT; New Victory, NYC; People’s Light, PA; Actor’s Theatre, KY; KC Rep; St. Louis Rep; Denver Center, published by DPS), AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS (New Vic and Royal Exchange, UK; Lookingglass Theatre; Baltimore Centerstage; published by Broadway Play Publishing) and the musical DAYS LIKE TODAY, music and lyrics by Alan Schmuckler (Writers Theatre, Chicago). As a screenwriter, Laura was on the writing staff of season two and three of the Emmy nominated Netflix drama HOUSE OF CARDS. She is an Ensemble Member and former Artistic Director of Chicago’s Lookingglass Theatre (2011 Regional Tony Award) where, in addition to playwriting, she’s worked extensively as an actor and director. In New York, she is a member of Rising Phoenix Rep, New Georges, and a Women’s Project Playwright’s Lab alumna. Originally from Chicago, she now lives in Brooklyn, NY. More information available at lauraeason.com or @LeasonNYC on twitter.

About the Book: How far will you go to get what you want? Will you be the same person if you finally do? When twenty-something star sex blogger and memoirist Ethan tracks down his idol, the gifted but obscure 40ish novelist Olivia, he finds they each crave what the other possesses. As attraction turns to sex, and they inch closer to getting what they want, both must confront the dark side of ambition and the trouble of reinventing oneself when the past is only a click away.

Sex with Strangers had its world premiere at Steppenwolf Theatre Company and its New York premiere at Second Stage Theatre in June 2014, directed by David Schwimmer starring Anna Gunn and Billy Magnussen.

“A twisty and timely play by Laura Eason…about lust, love and the complex nature of identity in our digital-dominated era.”-New York Times

"Sexy, smart, intimate, unpretentious." —Variety

“Sexually and intellectually provocative and A HELL OF A LOT OF FUN!” - The Hollywood Reporter

"...Sex With Strangers is yet another provocative and timely play to emerge from Steppenwolf. Arresting, involving and shrewdly self-aware." –Chicago Tribune

“Laura Eason’s wry, wise and wonderfully humorous Sex With Strangers poses some provocative, winningly entertaining answers with a drama that crackles with erotic tension and literary smarts.” –Examiner

“Lives up to its titillating title with a pitch-perfect story.” – Chicago Sun Times
