    Richard Kramer's new novel These Things Happen is set in Manhattan and told through a cast of familiar, sympathetic voices. It's the story of Wesley, a bright, sensitive and self-conscious teenager who moves from his mother and step-father's home to live with his gay and hitherto elusive father. When Wesley and his best friend Theo become victims of random violence, the fragile structure of his family is shattered and they are forced to confront their real feelings. Trauma makes them authentic.

    Literary BFFs is a series hosted by David Gutkowski, aka Largehearted Boy, where authors are paired up with the people who know them all too well — their best friends.

    Bonobos: They’re just like us, except they’re apes. In Eliot Schrefer’s Endangered, a girl with no fondness for these clever monkeys is forced to travel to the Congo to a bonobo sanctuary when revolution breaks out. Girl, and apes, must escape into the jungle and rely on each other to survive.

    Schrefer will be in conversation with his friend David Levithan, editor at Scholastic, and author of many books, most recently, Every Day. Levithan will grill Schrefer about his book, and perhaps also uncover some humiliating details only a best friend would know.

    Join 2 renowned authors for an evening of conversation, readings and author Q & A to celebrate the publication of Dark Pool of Light: Reality and Consciousness: Volume Three.

    In books such as Embyogenesis and Embryos, Galaxies, and Sentient Beings, Richard Grossinger brought together the subjects of biological embryology and consciousness as an embodied experience ("The embryo is the universe writing itself on its own body"). In Dark Pool of Light, a three volume series, Grossinger weaves neuroscience-based behaviorism and the phenomenology of "being" and reality together with psychological and psychospiritual views of "that single thing which is most difficult to understand or vindicate: our own existence." All three volumes of the book will be available at the talk and signing.
