Alan M. Ehrlich signs "Plunket in Wonderland"

Alan M. Ehrlich will be signing copies of his book Plunket in Wonderland: A Hollywood Tale on Sunday, March 4th, from 12 - 2 pm.

"...a Hollywood insider's hilarious tale of tinsel town betrayal turned sweet revenge... A studio reader falls through the rabbit hole to Wonderland, where he encounters agents, power brokers, and A-list stars... First-time novelist Alan Ehrlich delivers a tale at once fabulous and painfully accurate, and his subject -- the great Hollywood folly called 'development' -- has never been treated with such precision and wicked humor. Everyone who loves the movies will love Plunket in Wonderland." - Caitlin Flanagan, Author of "To Hell With All That" and "Girl Land"

Hollywood is a place. Hollywood is also a style, a goal, a sign, a dream. Hollywood is an industry. It is also a Bowl, a boulevard, a walk of fame, a wax museum. But most of all Hollywood is a vision -- a celluloid wonderland that unspools somewhere, over the rainbow, on the far side of the looking glass.

An overworked, underemployed reader for a grade B studio reads a steady stream of scripts in a cubicle that might overlook Hollywood, if it had any windows. Instead, its walls close in from six coffin-like directions. The only fresh air comes from his family -- a loving wife living in the aftermath of dissertation hell, and six-year-old triplets who refuse to learn how to read.

Then, from deep within flickers a light -- a singular light that just might shine through. Only one thing blocks its way -- the system.

Book Signing with Molly Brandenburg

Molly Brandenburg will be signing copies of her new book The Truth About Cats on Saturday February 18th from 1-3 pm.

Get ready, get set, MEOW! Are you ready for the truth? Can you even handle the TRUTH? For cat cartoon enthusiasts, the truth has arrived, in cartoonist Molly Brandenburg’s The Truth About Cats.

The Truth About Cats is a random series of cat cartoons that explores the major issues of the kitty universe, including theological concerns, sleeping in piles of other cats, and the real question of who exactly has first dibs on the kibble bowl. The book also introduces Frankie the cat, the loveably soulful cat with his eyes on a Hollywood career. In a series of lively line drawings, Frankie’s story is revealed, as this weight-challenged black and white cat finds his status on the home front threatened when a tabby kitten moves in and takes over his special place on the bed. Small issues, perhaps, to humankind, but to a feline, finding the right place on the owner’s bed is big time stuff, to be sure!

The Truth About Cats reveals all this and more. It’s sure to be the cat’s meow for cat lovers of every age.

The truth is out there. And it’s sure to have a lot of fleas.
