City Abandoned: Charting the Loss of Civic Institutions in Philadelphia Vincent Feldman Lifelong Philadelphia resident Vincent Feldman has spent the last three decades photographing the city’s architectural character. As some of our most significant structures began to crumble, Feldman’s photos increasingly focused on the conflicts and difficulties of historical preservation. A Master Lecturer in photography at the University of the Arts and recipient of a 2001 Pew Fellowship, Feldman has displayed his work at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and sold his work to patrons across the world. More than a photo collection, City Abandoned makes a passionate argument for preservation and renovation of some of Philadelphia’s most important but neglected buildings.

Joseph Fox Bookshop, Saturday, April 19 at 7:30pm
Hemp Bound: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Cannabis Economy Doug Fine Investigative journalist and muckraking author of the “eye-opening and persuasive” (The New York Times Book Review) best-seller Too High to Fail: Cannabis and the New Green Economic Revolution, Doug Fine peeks into dank corners to find the straight dope on the burgeoning American hemp industry. In Hemp Bound: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Cannabis Economy, Fine takes a road trip across North America to investigate the misunderstood plant’s pioneering 21st century uses—from powering cars to insulating houses to healing damaged farmland—and posits that its decriminalization would bring in more taxable income than its smokable cousin. Fine is also the author of Farewell, My Subaru: An Epic Adventure in Local Living and Not Really an Alaskan Mountain Man.

A Reading with Kelly Cogswell
Giovanni's Room, Thursday, April 24 at 5:30pm
Join us as activist and journalist Kelly Cogswell gives a reading from her new memoir, Eating Fire: My Life as a Lesbian Avenger.

At once streetwise and wistful, "Eating Fire" is a witty and urgent coming-of-age memoir spanning two decades, from the Culture War of the early 1990s to the War on Terror. Cogswell's story is an engaging blend of picaresque adventure, how-to activist handbook, and rigorous inquiry into questions of identity, resistance, and citizenship. It is also a compelling, personal recollection of friendships and fallings-out and of finding true love--several times over. After the Lesbian Avengers imploded, Cogswell describes how she became a pioneering citizen journalist, cofounding the "Gully" online magazine with the groundbreaking goal of offering "queer views on everything." The first in-depth account of the influential Lesbian Avengers, "Eating Fire" reveals the group's relationship to the queer art and activist scene in early '90s New York and establishes the media-savvy Avengers as an important precursor to groups such as Occupy Wall Street and La Barbe, in France. A rare insider's look at the process and perils of street activism, Kelly Cogswell's memoir is an uncompromising and ultimately empowering story of creative resistance against hatred and injustice.

Free Library of Philadelphia - Amartya Sen - An Uncertain Glory: India and its Contradictions
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Thursday, April 24 at 7:30pm
An uncertain glory: India and its Contradictions Amartya Sen Esteemed economist Amartya Sen received the Nobel Prize for his work on social choice theory, welfare economics, development economics, moral and political philosophy, and the economics of peace and war. With an impeccable record of advocacy for tolerance, pluralism, and harmony, he is credited with reintroducing ethics into economic discourse. A Professor at Harvard, Dr. Sen is the recipient of many honors, including the Bharat Ratna—the highest honor awarded by the President of India; the Eisenhower Medal; the French Legion of Honor; and the National Humanities Medal. His new book is “an urgent, passionate, political work” (New York Times Book Review), coauthored with longtime collaborator Jean Drèze, that makes clear the case that India—despite rapid economic growth—cannot move forward without making a significant investment in the essential needs of the people.

Book Signing w/Lori Clipner Hynson & Gospel Choir Performance
The Doylestown Bookshop, Friday, April 25 at 6:30pm
SuperGal vs. GOD Friday, April 25th at 6:30pm Book Signing with Lori Clipner Hynson with a gospel performance by The Second Baptist Church of Doylestown Mass Choir and The Back Bench Boys Secrets of a Recovering SuperGal Revealed New book for those women who know they can do anything, but feel the need to do everything! One woman’s page-turning, epic journey from SuperGal to surrender and redemption SuperGal—dynamo, achiever, well-organized, a community leader, and supremely independent. A fixer, she spent thirty-one years trying to hold together her teenage marriage and two kids, attempting to be all things to all people and trying to pursue her dreams. She was SuperGal to the world; a Shadow Face at home. Now, alone for the first time in her life, she cherished her newfound freedom from emotional bondage. 2 parts memoir, 1 part fiction, a jigger of love story and dollop of humor, SuperGal vs. GOD (Broken Shoe Press, July 2013) by Lori Hynson is the story of a woman who thought she could handle her own life, and the rest of the world, all by herself. Hynson wasn’t looking for love until the moment she was surprised by a gift of love she never saw coming. From a sweet man who began to paint for her the canvas of how love should look. She had no idea. Slowly, her icy fears melted away. But within weeks, joy turned to despair when he fell desperately ill. Then he got worse, then even worse and stayed that way. In typical SuperGal fashion, she rolled up her sleeves and went to work. She would fix this, too. She simply had to, and she would do it all on her own. She couldn’t bear to lose him now, not after waiting her whole life. God wanted her to turn to Him for help and to trust Him. But she wouldn’t and couldn’t. She hardly knew Him because he was only a Sunday Acquaintance. This SuperGal could handle anything that life threw her way. Until she couldn’t. Until she utterly failed. Until finally, God had her right where He wanted her. Through rage, despair, messengers, and miracles, SuperGal learned the hard way that Someone had a better plan. Someone was knocking who had the answer she needed and she only had to open the door. Taking on immense responsibility, organizing major events and working herself ragged was a regular occurrence for Hynson. That is, until her "super powers" failed, and she realized it wasn’t her job to run this planet. With this realization, and giving her life to God, came a major release. Through her own profound experience and "recovery," Hynson helps other SuperGals make this realization as well—that they needn’t feel responsible for the whole world because in the end even SuperGals can’t control life’s events. They can learn to ditch their own bootstraps and reach for God’s hand instead. "I have a strong desire to reach women, just like me, who are struggling to hold all the pieces of their lives in place and are overburdened and overwhelmed by everyday life," says Hynson. "I want to help them drop the ball-and-chain of guilt over circumstances they can’t control, and decrease the worry and fear in their lives. She wants to help women travel from stressed to blessed - one surrender at a time! About the Author Lori Hynson, "SuperGal Stress Whisperer – From Stressed to Blessed" is a first-time author of SuperGal vs. GOD. As a Recovering SuperGalaholic, she is an expert in recognizing how futile it all is. She speaks into the heart of the woman who knows she can do anything, but feels the pressure to do everything! A former marketing executive, Lori knows the ropes to help women climb out of the chasm of control and self-reliance, and to learn to trust God instead. Fueled by her passion to inspire women who struggle to do too much, Lori shares her SuperGal Recovery secrets. With humor, song, bare-it-all-honesty, and a sincere love for Jesus Christ, Lori reaches out to hurting and overburdened women to encourage them to surrender to God. She wants to help them realize IT'S NOT THEIR JOB TO RUN THIS PLANET! Lori is a wife, mother, Nana and retired business owner. Not to mention singer, ballet teacher and university cheerleading coach. Oh, and (deep breath) major event planner, local politician, community leader and inexhaustible go-getter. She is still most of these things. But first and foremost, she's a huge fan of Jesus Christ! Lori and and her husband have five grown children and eleven grandchildren, and live in Pennsylvania.
