Life in New York: How I Learned to Love Squeegee Men, Token Suckers, Trash Twisters and Subway Sharks ~
Laura Pedersen, author of bestseller Play Money and award-winning Buffalo Gal, serves up a hilarious memoir about three decades of city life. Originally from Buffalo, New York, friends thought the seventeen-year-old was suffering from blizzard delirium when she left for Manhattan. Pedersen experiences her adopted city in the best and worst of times while becoming the youngest person to have a seat on the stock exchange, performing stand-up comedy, and writing a column in the New York Times. Neighborhoods that feature chai bars, Pilates studios, and Gymboree were once drug dens, ganglands, and shantytowns. A trip to Central Park often ended in Central Booking, identifying a perp in a lineup.
New Yorkers are as diverse as the city they so colorfully inhabit, cautious but generous, brash but welcoming. Both are captured through the comedic eye of Pedersen. Enjoy an uproarious romp down memory lane as the city emerges as the modern metropolis we know today.
Laura Pedersen is an author, humorist, and playwright. She was also the youngest person at age twenty to have a seat on the American Stock Exchange, while earning a finance degree at New York University's Stern School of Business. She wrote for The New York Times and is the author of Play Money, Beginner's Luck (chosen as a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection), Planes Trains, and Auto-Rickshaws, Buffalo Gal and Buffalo Unbound.

Author B.R. Sanders joins me to talk about their book Ariah and more.
Ariah's magical training has been interrupted. Forced to rely on a mentor, Dirva, who is not who he claims to be, and a teacher who is foreign and powerful, Ariah is drawn into a culture wholly different from the elven one that raised him. As his friendship with Dirva's brother blossoms into a surprising romance, and he slowly learns how to control the dangerous magic in his blood, life finally appears to be coming together for Ariah—but love and security are cut short by a tyrannical military empire bent on expanding its borders. War, betrayal, passion, and confusion follow Ariah as his perilous journey leads him beyond the walls of the Empire, and into unfamiliar territory within himself. Along the way, he’ll discover just how much he’s willing to give up to find his place in the world, and he’ll learn what it means to sacrifice himself for freedom—and for love.

Mary Monroe has dyed black hair, pale face, and Goth makeup. She works at a trendy restaurant, but is not enamored of the celebrity lifestyle. Soon after her 25th birthday Mary meets with her mother’s lawyer and is shocked to learn she's been left millions. As she leaves his office he hands her a letter from her mother and a key to a secret storage space. When she opens the storage space she finds furniture, suitcases, and dresses all belonging to the legendary Marilyn Monroe.
Buying a new home with her new found wealth she furnishes it with the items from the storage space. But what happens next is nothing short of a miracle - or a nightmare. Mary finds herself blacking out and when she awakes she has a new hairstyle, clothes, and most intriguing and frightening of all...letters written to her by Marilyn Monroe. Plunged into a world she doesn’t remember, Mary tries to keep her sanity as she appears to be living the double life of a legend.
Follow Mary Monroe as she moves back and forth in time not sure she if she will lose herself or find another.

Due to an emercency, Bub Smith will not be with us this evening.
Hosts, Deb DeRousse and Jonathn Lento are excited to spend the evening with Bub Smith, founder of Slack Jaw Punks. Deb met Bub at the Michigan Paracon in 2014 and was instantly drawn to his smile, intelligence, soft heart, and his deep love of Horror films, Comic Books, and Video Games. Bub is also a bass player and a Hospice Nurse. Slack Jaw Punks was founded in 2012 when Bub placed an ad on craigs list: “Overly aggressive horror nerd with excessive amount of body hair seeks fellow horror nerd to form a lifetime partnership of telling people what they think about Horror movies, comic books, video games and T.V. Shows. Also I enjoy the HBO show Deadwood.” In the short 2 years since it was founded Slackjawpunks.com has showcased the premiere talent in the genre: From Eduardo Sanchez to Henry Rollins. Featuring interviews, reviews, podcasts and even junk food reviews (thanks to SJP’s resident chef/paranormal expert Patrick), it’s easy to see that SJP was founded by horror movie junkies for horror movie junkies. http://slackjawpunks.com/
