David Derrick presents and signs Play With Your Food
Vroman's Bookstore, Saturday, November 1 at 10:30am
We all know the rule. Don't Play with your Food, eat it! Well, in this beautifully illustrated picture book, things are a little bit different. When a small dinosaur finds himself on the menu of a larger dinosaur, he advises the prehistoric creature to play with his meal instead of eating it. David Derrick's third book is surely one that families will love to read over and over again!

Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted.

Brentwood- Kimberly Brooks, Tiffany Shlain and Jordan Shlain discuss "Leonardo's Brain"
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Sunday, November 2 at 3pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Kimberly Brooks, Tiffany Shlain and Jordan Shlain to the store to celebrate and discuss Leonard Shlain's posthumously published book, Leonardo's Brain: Understanding Da Vinci's Creative Genius on Sunday, November 2nd at 3pm. No other person in human history has excelled in as many different areas as Leonardo da Vinci, from art to science, psychology to military strategy. In Leonardo's Brain, Leonard Shlain asserts that Leonardo's genius came from a unique creative ability and employs state of the art left-right brain scientific research to explore it. Delving as well into current and historical research on human creativity, Shlain speculates as to whether Leonardo's unique qualities presage the evolution of the human species. Leonard Shlain was a San Francisco surgeon and the author of three bestselling books: Art & Physics; Alphabet vs. The Goddess; and Sex, Time, and Power. He delivered talks at Harvard, The New York Museum of Modern Art, CERN, Los Alamos, The Florence Academy of Art and the European Council of Ministers, among many others. Shlain died in May 2009 at the age of 71. His children, who helped publish Shlain's final book, are: Kimberly Brooks, artist and founding editor of the Arts and Science Section of the Huffington Post; Jordan Shlain, doctor and founder of Healthloop.com; and Tiffany Shlain, filmmaker, founder of The Webby Awards, and director of the Sundance documentary, Connected, about the ideas in Leonardo's Brain, as well as Leonard Shlain's final year.

Bob Odenkirk discusses and signs A Load of Hooey (Odenkirk Memorial Library)
Vroman's Bookstore, Sunday, November 2 at 4pm
Emmy winner and Breaking Bad star Bob Odenkirk has already proven himself a master of comedy writing through his stints on Saturday Night Live and Mr. Show. But now he's given us a new book full of his musings. From absurdist monologues ("Martin Luther King, Jr's Worst Speech Ever") to intentionally bad theater ("Hitler Dinner Party: A Play"), these pages will surely hold something for everyone.

Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted.

Helping Hands for Hand-Held Devices
Crowell Public Library, Monday, November 3 at 6pm
Monday, November 3, 6:00 p.m.
or
Saturday, November 8, 2:00 pm

Electronically savvy students from San Marino High School will be available on Monday night, November 3 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and again on Saturday afternoon, November 8 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM at Crowell Public Library’s Thornton Room to help people figure out how to use their hand-held devices. People can sign up for either of the free sessions. Many people have iPods, Androids, tablets, iPhones, and other gadgets these days, but can’t figure out all of the features. The teen volunteers are familiar with many of the concepts behind these devices, so even if they haven’t used a particular device, they may be able to help a person figure out what to do. The Los Angeles Times covered a previous session earlier this year and posted a story about it at http://lat.ms/1sODdVg.
If you are frustrated with online and telephone support options, come to Crowell Library and work with a living, breathing techie that will help you “bond” with your device. There’s nothing like one-on-one assistance to help solve problems and tackle sticky widgets. Crowell Library thanks Alice Computerworks, a store offering computer sales and services in San Marino, for providing light refreshments to fuel the young volunteers and provide a friendly environment for those attending.
To reserve your spot for this program and spend time getting a better understanding of your device, please call 626-300-0777, extension 579 as soon as possible. There are a limited number of teen volunteers, so slots will fill quickly. (notparoo)

author Susan Rosvall: Silence is Broken
Crowell Public Library, Wednesday, November 5 at 7pm
Wednesday November 5th 7:00 p.m.

The Friends of Crowell Public Library’s Meet the Authors series continues with Susan Rosvall, whose first novel, Silence is Broken, is about a naïve young private on a howitzer crew at Phu Loi base camp, Vietnam circa 1966. There he encounters an illiterate Klansman from rural Alabama who launches a series of increasingly homicidal attacks against him. The Private gains respect among the men when he confronts his nemesis and emerges a true hero during an attack where he saves the lives of eighty men. Swirling with local color and hard facts, the novel reveals a compelling story of survival, growth, and heroism, grounded in the history of the times. Silence is Broken is about self-reliance and personal courage, the metamorphic qualities of war and the healing power of empathy. At the broadest and most universal level, it’s about informed citizenship and the just use of deadly force. Learn some fascinating insights into this amazing story direct from the author on Wednesday November 5th at 7:00 p.m. in the Library’s Barth Community Room.

Since 1998, Susan Rosvall has taught English Composition at California State University, Los Angeles. Over the past several years, she has developed a theme-based course on just war theory. Recently, she has traveled to Vietnam and the Southern United States, where she researched the Vietnam Conflict and the American Civil Rights Movement, respectively. Ms. Rosvall received a B.A. in English from the University of California at Los Angeles, an M.S. in Education from the University of Southern California, and an M.A. in TESOL (linguistics) from California State University, Los Angeles. She is the mother of three and resides in San Marino with her husband.

This event is free and open to all. Light refreshments will be served. With wonderful Friends like these, the authors keep coming at Crowell Public Library! (notparoo)
