Join us for a book signing with Eric Monsky on Sunday, August 17th from 2-4pm. The author will be signing copies of his new book, Aversion.
"Adam Lange is consumed by resentment and anger and has been since the day his father died painfully in hospice. Desperate for a cure to end his grief, Adam hatches a plan: abandon his home and couch surf to save as much money as possible before quitting his job then travel the world indefinitely. This choice quakes the already turbulent relationship with his mother and brother, kicking up the misery of their collective past. As his journey to escape becomes tougher than ever thought imaginable; it strips what little resolve and restraint Adam has unleashing his rage. Eric Monsky describes Adam’s inner life with frightful honesty and intimacy. His shocking, funny and depraved portrait of a man refusing to feel his suffering is a disturbing exploration of human nature and its desperate need for distraction and avoidance in the face of tragedy."

"Endorsed by Earhart' is a well-researched project which encompasses the endorsements Amelia made while alive, those which financed her flying. It is not another biography. There are over 150 images, color and black/white, in the book to illustrate the various commitments she made. The project started out to document her luggage and trunks but soon turned in to so much more. Amelia's endorsements include airlines, automobiles, fashion, collector cards, the Longines watch, chocolate bars, malted milk, tomato juice, etc. There is also a section of all the first day covers she sold and signed commemorating her record flights courtesy of the National Postal Museum. The history of her luggage includes that produced by the Orenstein Trunk Company of New Jersey. The chronology of manufacturer is supplemented by labels and a comparison to Baltimore Luggage which purchased the Earhart line from Orenstein in 1962. The appendix presents an assortment of other companies of the same manufacturing era. Jacqueline Cochran luggage is also documented."

Join us for a book signing with James Oliver Goldsborough on Sunday, July 27th from 2-4pm. The author will be signing copies of his new book The Paris Herald.
"A story that is as evocative of Americans in Paris as Hemingway's A Moveable Feast
The Paris Herald tells the story of the world’s most famous newspaper, focusing on the key years when the fates of the newspaper and the regime of Charles de Gaulle became curiously intertwined. The story centers on intrigue and rivalry among the New York Herald Tribune, New York Times and Washington Post. When the Herald Tribune ceased operations in New York in 1966, the Times, which had started its own European Edition in 1960, expected the Paris Herald to close, too, giving the Times victory in Paris as well as New York. But Herald Tribune owner Jock Whitney wouldn’t sell to the Times, preferring to join with Katharine Graham and the upstart Washington Post. Within months, the Timescame, hat-in-hand, seeking a minority interest in the new Herald/Post partnership. The Times neither forgave nor forgot its humiliation.
The Paris Herald the most entertaining story of Americans in Paris since Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast, is riveting historical drama, as relevant today as yesterday."
