B&N and Borders June 2010 Events (Blue Rodeo, Lewis Black, Bret Easton Ellis)

The Facebook Effect Imperial Bedrooms - Bret Easton Ellis

Except for a few big releases from Nelson Demille, Bret Easton Ellis and (to a lesser extent) Anthony Bourdain, June is a pretty slow month for blockbuster book tours. A couple of the more interesting “sleeper” events include tonight’s (June 3) performance and signing from Blue Rodeo at Lincoln Triangle, the Upstairs at The Square event with The Growlers and Gavin McInnes on June 10 and Lewis Black‘s DVD signing on June 17. Here are a couple more June 2010 author events that I found interesting for one reason or another:

    LEWIS BLACK – run out and get the DVD, I love him he is my favorite comedian and this comedy special is the best yet 🙂

  2. Geena says:

    Aww I would kill to get my Stark Raving Black DVD signed by Lewis Black. It was hilarious and he never fails to make me laugh!

  3. Jason Glickman says:

    Lewis Black is better than ever in Stark Raving Black. His gruff, pissed off delivery is hard to find these days in some of the softer comedians, and you really get a fresh perspective on Lewis. Good Stuff!
