POLITICAL CARTOONIST TED RALL TO INTRODUCE NEW BOOK AT BOOKS&CO.

Wednesday, September 9 at 7 pm

Ted Rall, award-wining political cartoonist, will introduce Snowden, his graphic novel about “notorious whistleblower” Edward Snowden, on Wednesday, September 9 at 7 pm at Books & Co. at The Greene, 4453 Walnut Street, Beavercreek.
As many as ¼ million U.S. citizens with security clearances saw some or all of the same documents revealed by Edward Snowden. Why did he, and no one else, decide to step forward and take on the risk associated with becoming a whistleblower and then a fugitive? In Snowden, Rall delves into Snowden’s early life and work experience, his personality, and the larger issues of privacy, new surveillance technologies, and the recent history of government intrusion.
Rall describes Snowden’ political vision and hopes for the future. In a way, the book tells two stories; Snowden’s and a larger one that describes all of us on the threshold of tremendous technological upheaval and political change.
Rall is a nationally syndicated political cartoonist, opinion columnist, graphic novelist, and occasional war correspondent. He is twice the winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award and a Pulitzer Prize finalist. He was raised in Kettering, Ohio.

IAN DOESCHER INTRODUCES NEW STAR WARS BOOK @ BOOKS & CO

IAN DOESCHER will introduce William Shakespeare’s Tragedy of the Sith’s Revenge: Star Wars, Part the Third, on Saturday, September 19 at 1 pm at Books & Co. at The Greene, 4453 Walnut Street, Beavercreek.
The curtain rises once again on that star-crossed galaxy far, far away – this time, to chronicle a once-heroic knight’s transformation into the darkest of villains. Passionate but misguided, young Anakin will fall prey to an insidious plot and ruthlessly betray his Jedi brethren.
Witness the decline of a hero and the harrowing events that will change the fate of the galaxy forever! Heartbreak and destruction abound in this climactic conclusion to the fall of the House of Skywalker. It’s filled with masterful meter, stirring soliloquies, inside jokes, and Elizabethan illustrations. Boing Boing says, “Not a campy or goofy parody but a surprisingly well done tribute.”
Other books in the series are: William Shakespeare’s Star Wars; William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back; William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return; William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace; and William Shakespeare’s The Clone Army Attacketh.

Every year in Quill 13-year-olds are sorted into categories: the strong, intelligent Wanteds go to university and the artistic, creative Unwanteds are sent to their graves. Aaron and Alex Stowe are identical twins. Aaron is hopeful of becoming a Wanted and Alex knows his chances are slim, since he has been caught drawing with a stick in the sand, and therefore considered artistic.
As the story progresses the twins are separated. Aaron’s work in Quill has crumbled and he has fallen from power and influence, while Alex, how in Artime, abandons his search for Aaron and focuses on the terrifying power of a new ene4my who has taken control of Quill.
Kirkus Reviews refers to this exciting middle grade series as; “The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter.”
Lisa McMann is the author of the Wake trilogy, Cryer’s Cross, Dead to You, and the Visions series. You can read more about her at LisaMcMann.com.
