Launch Party with CAROL RUTH SILVER at Books Inc. Opera Plaza

Retired lawyer, activist, and former elected official Carol Ruth Silver celebrates the launch of Freedom Rider Diary: Smuggled Notes from Parchman Prison, her moving story of being one of the first white women to be jailed in the Freedom Rides of 1961 in Mississippi. Chronicling the events of her arrest, and time in prison, on scraps of paper she was amazingly able to smuggle out, this is a raw look at a tumultuous time in our nation's history that waited unread for more than fifty years.

Book Signing with CHELSEA HANDLER at Books Inc. Opera Plaza

Share this

Books Inc. Opera Plaza proudly presents a book signing with the star of E!'s Chelsea Lately and #1 New York Times-bestselling author Chelsea Handler, celebrating the release of her latest uproarious collection of musings, Uganda Be Kidding Me.

Wherever Chelsea Handler travels, one thing is certain: she always ends up in the land of the ridiculous. Now, in this uproarious collection, she sneaks her sharp wit through airport security and delivers her most absurd and hilarious stories ever. On safari in Africa, it's anyone's guess as to what's more dangerous: the wildlife or Chelsea. But whether she's fumbling the seduction of a guide by not knowing where tigers live (Asia, duh) or wearing a bathrobe into the bush because her clothes stopped fitting seven margaritas ago, she's always game for the next misadventure. The situation gets down and dirty as she defiles a kayak in the Bahamas, and outright sweaty as she escapes from a German hospital on crutches. When things get truly scary, like finding herself stuck next to a passenger with bad breath, she knows she can rely on her family to make matters even worse. Thank goodness she has the devoted Chunk by her side-except for the time she loses him in Telluride. Complete with answers to the most frequently asked traveler's questions, hot travel trips, and travel etiquette, none of which should be believed, UGANDA BE KIDDING ME has Chelsea taking on the world, one laugh-out-loud incident at a time.

*This event is a signing only. A Books Inc. receipt for Uganda Be Kidding Me is required for a place in the signing line.*

 Signing Guidelines:

-Line forms at noon.

-Chelsea will sign and personalize copies of Uganda Be Kidding Me and backlist titles.

-Chelsea will not sign memoribilia.

-Due to time constraints, Chelsea will not be posing for photos and no candid photos may be taken.
