BJ Novak reads from and signs Book With No Pictures (Saturday, October 25 at 1pm)
Award-winning comedian and author, BJ Novak, will turn anyone into a comedian with his new book. A book without pictures doesn't sound very exciting, but when the reader has to read every word on every page out loud, you might think twice! Especially when some of the words are “BLORK” or “Glibbity Globbity.” Who needs pictures when you can have just as much fun reciting the pages of this book. Cleverly silly, and laugh out loud hilarious, children will beg their parents to read it to them again and again!

Event Guidelines:

- For every copy of The Book with No Pictures purchased, B.J. will sign one copy of One More Thing.

- BJ Novak will personalize The Book with No Pictures.

- No memorabilia, photos, etc.

- Photos from the line. No posed photos.

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. Save your Vroman's receipt; it will be checked when you enter the signing line.

Participants will have the opportunity to create their own four-page mini comics! Steve will break down the creative and mechanical processes used by many comics professionals. Steve will also answer questions regarding the history of comics, the industry, and some of the many opportunities young people have to distribute their masterpieces to the masses. During his 25 years as a Vroman's bookseller, Steven Ross (aka "Mr." Steve) has moonlighted as a comic book writer. He has over a dozen published works to his credit, including contributions to Ninja High School, Zetraman, and MangaZine.

This event is geared for ages 8-12 and is FREE but RSVP's are recommended as space is limited: call 626-449-5320 x200 to reserve your space!

Tony Hale presents and signs Archibald's Next Big Thing (Sunday, October 26 at 1pm)
Archibald's Next Big Thing is the extraordinary adventure of an extra-ordinary chicken named Archibald Struer. His three brothers and one sister have each found their "Big Thing" (including a brother chicken who impressively grows human hair) and the only Big Thing Archibald has planned is what he’s eating for lunch. This all changes when he receives a mysterious blue card that reads “YOUR BIG THING IS HERE!” So, accompanied by a friendly bee named BEE, Archibald takes the card and heads out on a fantastic journey in hopes of finding his NEXT BIG THING. It’s a story that reminds us that, while looking for the next big thing isn't a bad thing, we should always remember that big and beautiful things are all around us...right NOW.

    Rob & Kristen Bell discuss and sign The Zimzum of Love: A New Way to Understand Marriage (Thursday, October 30 at 7pm)
    “As he revolutionized traditional teaching on hell in the phenomenal New York Times bestseller Love Wins, Rob Bell now transforms how we understand and practice marriage in The Zimzum of Love, co-written with his wife, Kristen. Despite the divorce statistics, people are still committing to each other, instinctively believing and hoping that theirs is a sacred union that will last forever. Yet when these couples encounter problems, they often lack the resources that keep them connected to this greater mystery surrounding marriage. In The Zimzum of Love, Rob and Kristin Bell introduce a startling new way of looking at marriage. Zimzum is a Hebrew term where God, in order to have a relationship with the world, contracts, creating space for the creation to exist. In marriage, zimzum is the dynamic energy field between two partners, in which each person contracts to allow the other to flourish. With their down-to-earth charm, a dose of whimsy, and memorable stories, Rob and his wife Kristen change how we consider marriage, providing insight that can help all of us create satisfying and sacred unions of our own.” (HarperOne)

    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.
