    Join Matthys Levy for a talk on his new novel, Building Eden.

    Join us for a story time and for a "make your own mini coloring book" activity with author-illustrator Mark Gonyea!

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  A sleep deprived kid creates monsters of his own to banish the ones that are keeping him awake in this fiendishly funny picture book that's the perfect counting and bedtime story. In graphic artist and designer Mark Gonyea's clever counting book, a little boy snuggles in for a nap, but much to his surprise, silly little monsters pop up wherever he looks. First there's one at the window, then two appear when he blinks, and three pop out when one of the monsters sneezes. Before he knows it, there are ten kooky creatures in his room. But will the little boy find a way to outsmart those pesky pests?

  • Berlin

    Thursday, October 18 at 7:00 pm

    Join Jason Lutes for a talk on his new book, Berlin. Twenty years in the making, this sweeping masterpiece charts Berlin through the rise of Nazism.

    ABOUT THE BOOK: During the past two decades, Jason Lutes has quietly created one of the masterworks of the graphic novel golden age. Serialized in twenty-two issues, collected in two volumes, with a third to be released at the same time as this omnibus, Berlin has more than 100,000 copies in print and is one of the high-water marks of the medium: rich in its well-researched historical detail, compassionate in its character studies, and as timely as ever in its depiction of a society slowly awakening to the stranglehold of fascism.

    Berlin is an intricate look at the fall of the Weimar...

They quickly have a suspect, Mick Durocher, and a confession, but not everyone on the team is convinced. Despite Mick’s ready admission, investigators quickly sense there might be more going on than is immediately apparent. At the same time, a large local business is being targeted with escalating acts of vandalism—a warehouse fire, a vandalized truck, a massive cooling system...
