Edan Lepucki is starting her extensive tour for her debut novel California next week. Here’s a list of all the stores where you can catch her (and her California-shaped necklace).

Look at this nifty thing that my publisher made!  Come see me talk about this book.  I’ll wear lipstick, I’ll hug you, I’ll sign your book, and we can discuss gender and sex in dystopian fiction.

I know we’re posting a lot about Edan Lepucki, but I promise that her visit to Athens on 7/27 will be totally worth the hype.  Check this out! We are only 3 weeks away (squee). The book goes on sale 7/8/14—we have a ton of preorders thanks to y’all!

How to Be Happy
by Eleanor Davis

http://www.fantagraphics.com/howtobehappy

152-page color/b&w 7.75” x 10.125” hardcover • $24.99

ISBN: 978-1-60699-740-6

Write a story. A story about yourself. A story about your life.

Now, believe it.

This is Eleanor Davis's first collection of observational, graphic short stories.

Tinged with science fiction and fantasy, these stories are grounded in contemporary life: middle management goes searching for Eden; two sisters, inside environmental suits, say goodbye to their father; people try to fill inner voids with babies and yoga and gluten-free bread.

Davis has been honored by the Eisner Awards, and has won a Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators.

How to Be Happy is due out in just a few measly weeks! Better pre-order your copy now — this is one highly anticipated book!

We love supporting our local artists & authors! We have a TON of copies of this coming to Avid as soon as the book is released. Preorder here if you wish (no matter where you live):  http://avidbookshop.com/book/9781606997406

I’m reading fiction all summer. I also, for some reason, can’t stop listening to “Wendell Gee,” by R.E.M. even though it’s something like thirty years old.

I’m an evangelist for the massive A Moment in the Sun by John Sayles, which came out in 2011, but I adore it. Sayles worked some kind of…

We love Jessica Handler and Acapella Books!
