Chloe Caldwell in Conversation with Jay Ponteri

Friday, December 9 @ 7:30 PM

Powell's City of Books

Chloe Caldwell’s I’ll Tell You in Person (Coffee House Press) offers disarmingly frank essays on sexuality, celebrity, T.J.Maxx, acne, off-brand chocolate, almost-little-sisters, Craigslist, wanting to write, and the eternal what-should-I-do-with-my-life. Flailing in jobs, failing at love, getting addicted and unaddicted to people, food, and drugs – I'll Tell You in Person is a disarmingly frank account of attempts at adulthood and all the less-than-perfect ways we get there. Caldwell has an unsparing knack for looking within and reporting back what's really there, rather than what she'd like you to see. Caldwell will be joined in conversation by Jay Ponteri, author of Wedlocked: A Memoir.

Today, author and illustrator Bob Shea joins us to read from his new book, The Happiest Book Ever (Disney-Hyperion). What could be happier than a book with a dancing cake, a candy parade, and a hug monster? A book with all those things (and more) plus YOU! Your happy, happy thoughts will make this book super happy happy! In his most interactive book yet, Shea proves that happiness is more than just a piece of chocolate cake. (Though that comes pretty close!)

Bill Ayers

In an era defined by mass incarceration, endless war, economic crisis, catastrophic environmental destruction, and a political system offering more of the same, radical social transformation has never been more urgent – or seemed more remote. A manifesto for movement-makers in extraordinary times, Bill Ayers’s Demand the Impossible! (Haymarket) urges us to imagine a world beyond what this rotten system would have us believe is possible. In critiquing the world around us, the insurgent educator, activist, and author of Fugitive Days uncovers cracks in that system, raising the horizons for radical change and envisioning strategies for building the movement we need to make a world worth living in.
