Three author events next weekend

We will be hosing three separate signings this coming weekend. We hope to see you here!

Michelle Markel will be signing copies of Tyrannosaurus Math on Saturday, Sept. 12th from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Who can add an entire herd of triceratops, multiply the legs of a group of ankylosaurs, and estimate the distance to the next tasty meal? Tyrannosaurus Math! He's a number crunching dinosaur who chews on math problems as easily as he thunders through the trees. When his little sister is in terrible danger, T-Math even saves the day by using his measurable math skills. Is there anything he can't figure?

Co-authors David Hamlin and Brett Arena will be signing copies of Los Angeles's Original Farmer's Market on Sunday, Sept. 13th, from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

The original Farmers Market at Third Street and Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles has been at the center of the city’s history for 75 years. Farmers Market led Los Angeles out of the Great Depression, drew tourists from around the world, and became the most popular attraction in Southern California. It is Los Angeles’s beloved grocery store, its town square, its favorite dining room and den, Hollywood’s best friend, and one of the city’s most delightfully eccentric citizens. From its uniquely quirky beginnings to its contemporary stature as the coolest place in town, Farmers Market has a history rich in stories and is alive with character, integrity, and tradition.

Dani Klein Modisett will be signing copies of Afterbirth: Stories You Won't Find in a Parenting Magazine on Sunday, Sept. 13th, from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Afterbirth is about what parenting is really like: full of inappropriate impulses, unbelievable frustrations, and idiotic situations. It’s about how life for some parents changes for the worse after their kids are born. Or so it feels. It’s about how not every threeyear- old is charming and delightful and about how sometimes when your kid is having a tantrum, you have to stifle the impulse to round-house him. And Afterbirth is funny—the participants are some of the best comic writers and performers today, turning their attention very close to home and sparing no one, particularly themselves.
