JACK BENDER with JASON RITTER at Books Inc. Opera Plaza

A producer and director on projects such as Lost, The Sopranos, and Game of Thrones, JACK BENDER shares his brilliant debut book, Elephant in the Room.

If ever there was a children's book for adults only, this is the one: sweet and surreal, playfully Picasso, and full of cockeyed wisdom. I was charmed, and I'm giving the damn thing to everyone. I think you ll do the same. My advice is grab a copy immediately. Yesterday, if possible. -Stephen King 
The Elephant in the Room, is a collection of stories told through his art, a lyrical interweaving of abstraction, rich color and texture, and surreal dreaminess. With themes of morality, identity, love, loss, death, and birth, these stories are tender and intimate, but cut with Bender's biting humor and a master storyteller's sense of irony.

A slideshow presentation will also be featured AND Jack will be interviewed by JASON RITTER, from NBC’s Parenthood, Comedy Central’s Drunk History and Another Period, and Shoshanna’s love interest on HBO’s Girls.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we are so excited to begin reintroducing the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In addition to meet-and-greet author events and standard author talks, we are also continuting virtual author events.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
