Justin Simien discusses and signs Dear White People

Book Soup LA

8818 W. Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, 60069


In the satirical tradition of the "New York Times" bestseller "Stuff White People Like" comes this witty companion book to the "incredibly entertaining" ("Indiewire") film of the same name, which "heralds a fresh and funny new voice" ("Variety").
Right out of college, Justin Simien wrote a screenplay about the nuanced experiences of four black students on a predominantly white college campus. The film, "Dear White People," garnered a Sundance Award for "Breakthrough Talent" and has been hailed by critics everywhere. Channeling the sensibility of the film into this book, Simien will keep you laughing with his humorous observations, even if you haven't seen the satiric film.

MATTHEW GAVIN FRANK discusses his book PREPARING THE GHOST, in conversation with DAVID ULIN

Skylight Books

1818 N. Vermont Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90027


Moses Harvey was the eccentric Newfoundland reverend and amateur naturalist who first photographed the near-mythic giant squid in 1874, draping it over a shower curtain rod to display its magnitude. In Preparing the Ghost, what begins as Moses s story becomes much more, as fellow squid-enthusiast Matthew Gavin Frank boldly winds his narrative tentacles around history, creative nonfiction, science, memoir, and meditations about the interrelated nature of them all.

In a full-hearted, lyrical style reminiscent of Geoff Dyer, Frank weaves in playful forays about his research trip to Moses s Newfoundland home, Frank's own childhood and family history, and a catalog of bizarre facts and lists that recall Melville's story of obsession with another deep-sea dwelling leviathan.

Though Frank is armed with impressive research, what he can't know about Harvey he fictionalizes, quite explicitly, as a way of both illuminating the scene and exploring his central theme: the big, beautiful human impulse to obsess.
