Author Signing and Discussion: UN/MASKED

  • Beginnings Restaurant

Join us as the author of UN/MASKED: Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour talks about strong women while we pour strong drinks.

UN/MASKED follows the surprising 25-year journey of a young, New York City actress swept off her feet by the rising movie star, William Hurt, who carries her to Malibu and back for a three-plus year love affair that is both fantastical and physically dangerous.  As a GuerrillaGirl, Aphra Behn creates comedic art and theater that blasts the blatant sexism of the theater world while proving feminists are funny at the same time.

This is the memoir of a woman-turned-survivor-turned-radical-feminist who takes off her mask and, by merging her identities, reveals all.

Author Signing: The Mommy Shorts Guide to Remarkably Average Parenting

  • Beginnings

Ilana Wiles is not a good mother. She’s not a bad mother either. Like most of us, she’s normal. From the creator of the wildly popular blog Mommy Shorts comes Ilana Wiles’s first humor book on remarkably average parenting. If you want solid advice about raising kids, this book is not for you. If you want to wallow in your own misery about how having kids is AWFUL, this book is not for you. This book pays homage to the every-parent and suggests that they are the people having the best child-rearing experience of all. Using Wiles’s signature infographics and photographs to illustrate her personal and hilarious essays on motherhood, the book is an honest guide that celebrates the fun of being a mom.

Ilana joins us for a reading and signing. If you're also a remarkably average mom or dad join us for a hilarious evening and some great drink specials. Because we all know the little ones can make you need a cocktail (or two).

Author Event: The Fortress

We are delighted to have best selling author Danielle Trussoni with us as part of our "Featured Read" series for a reading and signing of The Fortress: A Love Story, her riveting account of moving to a 13th century stone castle in the village of Aubais with hope to save her failing marriage. To say it didn't work isn't giving anything away. TO say how spectacularly it didn't work is a breathtaking, and beautifully told, story that readers will never forget. 

Trussoni is the author of the critically acclaimed memoir Falling Through the Earth, selected as one of the Ten Best Books of the year  by the New York Times Book Review. She is also the author of the internationally bestselling novels Angelology and Angelopolis. 

Copies will be available for purchase at the Beginnings bar starting October 1st. Please also ask about our Fortress cocktail available during the month of October. 

Reservations or a two drink bar minimum are required to attend this event.
