New York, NY

Emma Straub’s Modern Lovers, a New York Times Bestseller, tells the story of three young friends becoming old enough to watch their own children come of age. According to The New York Times, Straub “captures the jagged highs and lows of adolescence with freshness and precision, and the decades-long relationships of old college friends with a wry understanding of how time has both changed (and not changed) old dynamics.” Emma Straub has written for Tin House, The Paris Review Daily, The New York Times, and Rookie, and is the author of two previous novels, Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures and the New York Times Bestseller The Vacationers. Lorrie Moore says, “Emma Straub is a magician, full of brilliance and surprise.”

She will be joined by Stuart Nadler, for the New York launch of his new novel The Inseparables, an account of three generations of women dealing with unwanted disclosures, discoveries of secrets, and catastrophic relationships. Stuart Nadler is previously the author of the novel Wise Men and the short story collection The Book of Life, as well as a recipient of the 5 Under 35 Award from the National Book Foundation. “Stuart Nadler’s savage wit and incendiary insights mix in this brilliant, funny and deeply moving novel to give us a glimpse into the generational moment we’re all living in,” says Alexander Chee. “This is a novel about how our culture treats sex, and the lives—and rights—of women of any age.”

July 5th: 7:00pm

Word Bookstore Brooklyn location

Comedians Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld never thought anyone would watch their silly little sitcom about a New York comedian sitting around talking to his friends. NBC executives didn’t think anyone would watch either, but they bought it anyway, hiding it away in the TV dead zone of summer. But against all odds, viewers began to watch, first a few and then many, until nine years later nearly 40 million Americans were tuning in weekly.

Seinfeldia celebrates the creators and fans of this American television phenomenon, bringing readers behind the scenes of the show while it was on the air and into the world of devotees for whom it never stopped being relevant, a world where where the Soup Nazi still spends his days saying “No soup for you!”, Joe Davola gets questioned every day about his sanity, Kenny Kramer makes his living giving tours of New York sites from the show, and fans dress up in Jerry’s famous puffy shirt, dance like Elaine, and imagine plotlines for Seinfeld if it were still on TV.

THINK OLIO: THE OTHER SIDE OF GENIUS: INTERDISCIPLINARY ARTISTS IN THE JAZZ AGE

GENIUS (1)1.thumbnailJuly 6: 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Strand’s 3rd floor Rare Book Room at store at 828 Broadway at 12th Street

Lucky young Americans in Paris during the 1920s, including Hemingway, Fitzgerald and Gershwin, measured themselves against monumental figures of the time: Joyce, Picasso, Stravinsky. Powerful personal connections link the works that grew from near-daily contact with other geniuses. What has been obscured by the halo of their success is that many were audaciously trying media with which they had little experience. Writers and composers painted up a storm, artists turned into poets, and the theater gathered dream teams of talent. Hemingway was a connoisseur of contemporary art, Gershwin and cummings exhibited paintings, Leger made films, Pound wrote an opera, and Picasso was spending more time backstage at the Ballets Russes than in the studio. This is a celebration of the courage to go beyond one’s specialty to experiment.

Buy a $20 ticket to attend this event— admission will include 1 drink, courtesy of Jenny & Francois. Please note that payment is required for all online event orders at the time of checkout.

selfish

The premiere issue of Taylor Yates‘s feminist zine was subtitled “Second Button Gap,” reminding us that not even women’s shirts are made with women in mind — one very literal example of the demand to squeeze and tug and deform our bodies to fit a world so emphatically Not For Us. It’s about time we got Selfish. Join the magazine’s staff and contributors tonight for the launch of the latest issue, “Good Girl,”which examines the inherent fallacy of that label through memoirs, poetry, stories, visual art, photography, and just about any experimental medium that can be translated into print.

Revel in readings by Sable Elyse Smith, Giorgia Sage, Annie Frame, Darcie Wilder, and Alys Velazquez while browsing artwork by Gabi Pérez, Erin Shipley, Devika Sen, Rachel Cabitt, and Grace Mateo. Beer, snacks, and zines are available.

Time: 7:00 pm

ways_to_disappearIf New Directions’ reissue of Clarice Lispector’s The Complete Stories left you wanting more mysterious Brazilian lady-writers, Idra Novey’s debut novel is here for you. Already a prolific poet-translator who has written for NPR’s All Things Considered, the New York TimesPoetry, and the Paris Review, Novey is garnering high praise for her first novel — a starred review from Publishers Weekly calls it a “fun Brazilian noir” and an “eloquent meditation on the art and anxiety of translation.” Ways to Disappear tells the story of a legendary Brazilian novelist, deep in gambling debt, who disappears, suitcase and cigar in hand — and the American translator who sets out from Pittsburgh to Rio to find her. Novey will here be in conversation with novelist Nell Freudenberger to discuss the book that Kirkus Reviewshas deemed a “tour de force.”

February 15th- William Shatner on Leonard Nimoy

Barnes & Noble Union Square
33 E. 17th St. 
New York, NY 10003

Time: 7:00 pm

0000000147762William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy were the Lennon & McCartney, or possibly the Martin & Lewis, of science fiction. Their competitive natures brought out the best in each other on the original Star Trek, an alchemy never again achieved by what followed in the Seventies. But unlike those other famous pairs, Shatner and Nimoy were able not only to successfully reunite in later years and continue doing good work, but to forge a lasting friendship — try to watch the 2001 documentary Mind Meld: Secrets Behind the Voyage of a Lifetime, which is just them hanging out in Nimoy’s backyard and reminiscing, without getting a little teary. Following Nimoy’s death last year, Shatner has written Leonard: My Fifty-Year Friendship With a Remarkable Man, which delves into the ups and downs of their decades-long relationship. He’ll be reading from the book tonight, and whether you’re a Trek fan or not, it’s a safe bet that there won’t be a dry eye in the house.

February 16th-Book Launch: Why the Grateful Dead Matter by Michael Benson

February 16th- THE NARROW DOOR with Paul Lisicky, Fiona McCrae, and Meghan Daum

Housing Works Bookstore
126 Crosby Street
New York, NY 10012

Time: 7:00 pm

16_Narrow_DoorPaul Lisicky presents his new acclaimed memoir, The Narrow Door (Graywolf) with Fiona McCrae, publisher and director of Graywolf Press, and Meghan Daum (The Unspeakable).

In The Narrow Door, Paul Lisicky creates a compelling collage of scenes and images drawn from two long-term relationships, one with a woman novelist and the other with his ex-husband, a poet. The contours of these relationships shift constantly. Denise and Paul, stretched by the demands of their writing lives, drift apart, and Paul’s romance begins to falter. And the world around them is frail: environmental catastrophes like the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, natural disasters like the earthquake in Haiti, and local disturbances make an unsettling backdrop to the pressing concerns of Denise’s cancer diagnosis and Paul’s impending breakup. Lisicky’s compassionate heart and resilience seem all the stronger in the face of such searing losses. His survival—hard-won, unsentimental, authentic—proves that in turning toward loss, we embrace life.
