Description:
“As a child I loved hearing my grandpa sing while playing his old cracked ukulele. I learned to play by watching at his feet. The music was bound together with his stories of being in the war and of his huge family, all of whom were larger than life characters. To me, the stories and the songs became inseparable.” Born with a profound love of music and a knack for weaving his own stories into his witty compositions- sometimes darkly comic and other times heartrendingly beautiful- Jesse Daniel Edwards began composing his own music with his six brothers and sisters at the age of 7. His first composition was an ode to his mother's mashed potatoes, arranging harmonies and recording his earliest efforts in his family’s coal cellar. Leaving home at 17 to busk around the US and abroad in Europe, he eventually found his way to Music City and began to cut his teeth as a songwriter in Nashville in 2008. It was there that he was mentored by Al Bunetta, (John Prine) a childhood hero of Jesse's. As he has grown in years and artistic maturity, he has continued to put forth his brand of honest and heartfelt songwriting. And his rootsy style has persisted: “The rich traditions of towns like Nashville and Dublin affected me very strongly when I was traveling, not just the DIY sound of folk music, but also the candid stories,” Jesse says of his inspiration and sound. Since that period, JDE has performed full-time on the college and music festival circuits both solo and with his 5-piece band. He has songs featured in radio, television, and independent films and his music may be heard on Netflix, Apple Music, and Spotify (featured artist). His latest album “Un / Becoming” releases throughout 2018.

Fans of Colleen Hoover, rejoice! She is coming to the store to see you, answer your questions, take photos with you, and sign your books. Each ticket comes with a copy of ALL YOUR PERFECTS. Signing line: For every book purchased at Malaprop's, fans are permitted to bring up to 2 additional books from home for autographing. The store and author reserve the right to limit the signing of additional items in the interest of time and making sure all fans are able to meet Colleen. About ALL YOUR PERFECTS: Quinn and Graham have a perfect love story, but their unique connection is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart, day by heartbreaking day. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair. So do they risk it? Is their history worth saving? All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple struggling with a relatable issue - infertility - whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. In Colleen Hoover's inimitable style and brilliant narrative voice, this heartbreaking page-turner asks: Can a resounding love with a fairytale beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people? About Colleen Hoover: When Colleen Hoover self-published her first book, SLAMMED, she was living in a single trailer with her husband and three children, making $9/hour. She had to unplug the microwave to use the air conditioning. Then her book hit the New York Times bestseller list in July of 2012 and continued to climb the list, ultimately peaking at #8. She signed a book deal with Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, and moved into her first house at the end of that year. PAYING IT FORWARD: In February of 2015, Colleen launched The Bookworm Box, a subscription service for signed books, with all proceeds going to a different charity every month. As of December 2017, BWB has donated over $1 million to various charities in the US.

What happens when a story unfolds like a letter—or a police blotter—or a contract—or a sermon? What happens when you write an essay in the form of a prayer—or epitaph—or craigslist ad? Do you feel compelled to write but don’t know where to start? Do you have an idea for a story but don’t know what shape it should take? Does the idea of structure throw you for a loop? In this lively and generative workshop, author Matthew Vollmer will give you imaginative strategies for seeing the content of your work anew by encouraging you to consider the various and particular forms and genre that writing can take. This workshop will invigorate your writing and provide new avenues for creative expression.   Cost: $35 if you register before August 10, 2018, $45 after.   A FREE staged reading of essays from Matthew's new book, Permanent Exhibit, will follow the class on Saturday evening; time and venue TBA.

You will be registered when we receive your payment, space permitting. Read your Eventbrite confirmation email for information you will need for the class.  Matthew Vollmer is the author of two collections of short stories, Future Missionaries of America and Gateway to Paradise, as well as inscriptions for headstones, a collection of one-sentence essays, each unfolding in the form of an epitaph. He is, with David Shields, the co-editor of Fakes: An Anthology of Pseudo-Interviews, Faux Lectures, Quasi-Letters, “Found” Documents, and Other Fraudulent Artifacts. He also edited A Book of Uncommon Prayer, an anthology of everyday invocations from over 60 authors. A winner of a Pushcart Prize and a fellowship from the National Endowment of the Arts, his latest book, Permanent Exhibit, a collection of short essays, will be published in September 2018 by BOA Editions, LTD.
