**OFFSITE** RESCHEDULED** Tuna the Dog @ PAWS Chicago Lincoln Park Adoption Center Community Room
The Book Cellar, Wednesday, April 1 at 6pm
Join The Book Cellar and PAWS Chicago on April 1 as they team up to host the Tuna Melts My Heart book signing tour! All tickets include admission to the event, a donation to PAWS, and a copy of Tuna Melts My Heart: The Underdog with the Overbite.

TICKETS and BOOKS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PICK UP AT THE EVENT LOCATION: Lincoln Park Adoption Center Community Room, 1997 Clybourn Ave.

FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA CASTAWAY TO HOLLYWOOD HEARTBREAKER, TUNA THE CHIWEENIE HAS WON THE ADORATION OF MILLIONS. Now, this charming and unconventional pooch has his own book, filled with more than a hundred all-new photographs and witty commentary to give fans an intimate and hilarious look at the Internet’s most prized pup. Tuna’s cartoonish looks—with an exaggerated overbite, a recessed jawline, and a wrinkly neck—are truly one of a kind. And yet his quirky appearance is no match for his unique perspective on life, overcoming his proclivity for staying in bed all day to keep his eye on the (bacon-flavored) prize. Teaming up with his owner, Courtney Dasher, Tuna shares a behind-the-scenes look at his daily exploits, which include sleeping, sunbathing, wearing bow ties, playing with toys, and melting hearts.

About Tuna:

Tuna is a 4 year-old Chiweenie with an exaggerated overbite, recessed jawline and a magnificent wrinkly neck (a.k.a shrivelneck). He was rescued by Courtney Dasher in December of 2010 at a Farmers Market in LA when he was a four-month old puppy. A year into their friendship, Courtney created an Instagram account dedicated to Tuna’s photos. At the end of 2012, Tuna’s notoriety grew on Instagram when they featured a picture of him on their personal page, unbeknownst to her. He now has over a million followers on Instagram.

Courtney never anticipated the kind of response that she has received from people’s adoration for Tuna. In fact, when she created his account, she had no agenda to garner a large following, but she did recognize that Instagram could be a catalyst to bring people joy through Tuna’s pictures that showcased his cartoonish looks and his charming personality. That has proven to be true because Courtney receives countless comments and emails daily about the impact that Tuna is making on their lives. Since Tuna is the epitome of the underdog, most people advocate for him and adore him for his endearing qualities. His loyal followers embrace his physical differences, have fallen in love with his charm and connect to his message; that true beauty comes in all forms and radiates from within. Furthermore, he is an ambassador for animal rescue, since he too was once rescued, and it has become a part of Courtney’s mission to raise awareness for rescue groups through this platform.

Dina Elenbogen, "Drawn From Water: An American Poet, An Ethiopian Family, an Israeli Story"
The Book Cellar, Thursday, April 2 at 7pm
Dina Elenbogen visits The Book Cellar to share her new memoir Drawn From Water: An American Poet, An Ethiopian Family, An Israeli Story.

In Drawn From Water, Dina explores her thirty-year friendship with Ethiopian Jewish immigrants in Israel as they struggle in a new country while dealing with her own desire to join them there. Thirty years ago, Operation Moses airlifted thousands of Ethiopian Jews to Israel, where today they, immigrants from other years, and descendants form a community over 100,000 strong. Through the stories of the children Osnat, Elad, and their siblings Dina raises questions about religion, assimilation, and cultural identity. The author's poetic voice examines immigration in all its forms, success and failure, adaptation and resistance. Black Ethiopians suffer discrimination, and are hindered by cultural and language difficulties, yet the children eventually attend college, marry, and have families of their own. Dina's personal journey parallels theirs, but poetry and the arts give her a bridge between her life in America and her desire for Israel.

Dina is an award-winning poet and author of the collection Apples of the Earth. Her essays have appeared in magazines including Tikkun, Chicago Reader, New City, Midstream, Chicago Jewish News and the anthology Word by Word: The Iowa Writer's Workshop 75 Years. Dina received a MFA in poetry from the Iowa Writer’s Workshop, and a BA with honors in English and a certificate in Jewish studies from Indiana University. She teaches creative writing at the University of Chicago Graham School where she received the 2012 excellence in teaching award and gives poetry and prose readings, leads workshops and lectures at numerous venues including universities, libraries, and cultural centers.

Authors Discussion and Signing with Adam Selzer & Michael Glover Smith
Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, Saturday, April 4 at 2pm
Authors, Adam Selzer and Michael Glover Smith will discuss and sign their latest book, Flickering Empire: How Chicago Invented the U.S. Film Industry. This is the latest and most extensive volume on the almost forgotten history of movie making in Chicago in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It will be enlightening and entertaining with new stories and photos you may have not seen before. Come with questions about the early days film production in Chicago and those stories your older or deceased relatives told you about seeing Charlie Chaplin, Gloria Swanson and the Gish sisters on the sidewalks of Chicago.

Flickering Empire: How Chicago Invented the U.S. Film Industry tells the fascinating but too little known story of how Chicago served as the unlikely capital of film production in America in the years prior to the rise of Hollywood (1907-1913). As entertaining as it is informative, the book straddles the worlds of academia and popular non-fiction alike in its vivid illustration of the rise and fall of the major Chicago movie studios in the mid-silent era (principally Essanay and Selig Polyscope). Colorful, larger-than-life historical figures like Thomas Edison, Charlie Chaplin, Oscar Micheaux and Orson Welles are major players in Flickering Empire - in addition to important but forgotten industry giants like 'Colonel' William Selig, George Spoor and Gilbert 'Broncho Billy' Anderson.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS

Michael Glover Smith is an independent filmmaker who teaches film history at several Chicago-area colleges. Adam Selzer is a tour guide, and the author of several books on Chicago history and folklore.
