Skylight Books Presents Cory Doctorow and Jen Wang, 10/15Skylight Books Presents Cory Doctorow and Jen Wang, 10/15
by BWW News Desk - Oct 8, 2014

Skylight Books (1818 N. Vermont in Los Feliz) presents Cory Doctorow and Jen Wang on Wednesday, October 15 at 7:30pm. Skylight Books is thrilled to welcome acclaimed writer and activist Cory Doctorow and illustrator Jen Wang to present their new graphic novel, In Real Life. The story is about Anda who loves Coarsegold Online, the massively-multiplayer role playing game that she spends most of her free time on. It's a place where she can be a leader, a fighter, a hero. It's a place where she can meet people from all over the world, and make friends. Gaming is, for Anda, entirely a good thing. But things become a lot more complicated when Anda befriends a gold farmer - a poor Chinese kid whose avatar in the game illegally collects valuable objects and then sells them to players from developed countries with money to burn. This behavior is strictly against the rules in Coarsegold, but Anda soon comes to realize that questions of right and wrong are a lot less straightforward when a real person's real livelihood is at stake. From acclaimed teen author Cory Doctorow and rising star cartoonist Jen Wang, In Real Life is a sensitive, thoughtful look at adolescence, gaming, poverty, and culture-clash. Cory Doctorow is a co-editor of Boing Boing and a columnist for multiple publications including the Guardian, Locus, and Publishers Weekly. He was named one of the Web's twenty-five influencers by Forbes magazine and a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. His award-winning novel Little Brother was a New York Times bestseller. He lives in London with his wife and daughter. Jen Wang is an cartoonist and illustrator currently living in Los Angeles. Her works have appeared in the Adventure Time comics and LA Magazine. Her graphic novel Koko Be Good was published by First Second. In Real Life is her second book. The event takes place on October 15 at 7:30pm. Skylight Books is located at 1818 N. Vermont in Los Feliz (cross is Franklin). 323-660-1175. Skylight Books is a general bookstore serving the historic Los Angeles neighborhoods of Hollywood, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park, and Downtown. Skylight Books was named One of the Best Bookstores in America by USA Today. (more...)

At the beginning of the NASHVILLE episode we're left with a lot of questions (though I'm sure I say this every week…it being a high-intensity drama, and all). Gunnar and Scarlett have some sexual-tension-filled-quasi-romance going on, that Zoe is slowly but surely becoming more aware and jealous of, Avery is seconds away from an obvious alcohol binge-turned-addiction, Juliette is in search of an adoption agency, and Jeff Fordham shows up at Maddie and Daphne's school with a questionable $25,000 donation and a silent auction bid to golf with the mayor. The only question we don't have is whether we will see Ms. Broadway Baby Laura Benanti (Rayna's request to meet with Sadie Stone in the first scene of the evening solidifies this…thank goodness!).

by Pat Cerasaro - Nov 11, 2014

Today we are talking to one of the most powerful directors on Broadway, in the West End and in Hollywood all about the breathtaking screen-to-stage-to-screen adaptation of his Tony Award- and Olivier Award-winning Best Musical BILLY ELLIOT: THE MUSICAL, coming to Fathom movie theaters nationwide this week, the affable and gifted Stephen Daldry. Discussing originally adapting the hit British indie alongside composer Elton John and screenwriter/lyricist Lee Hall into the worldwide sensation that the musical eventually became, Daldry reflects on how many iconic elements of the original production came to be as well as comments on the enduring impact of the musical since its debut more than 10 years ago. Additionally, Daldry sheds considerable light on how the Fathom filming of BILLY ELLIOT was designed to showcase the exceptional entertainment value of the enterprise and its incredible cast of actors, as well as overseeing the unforgettable finale staged especially for this special 10th anniversary performance, including an awe-inspiring dance sequence involving 26 actors who have notably essayed the title role over the course of the show's run on Broadway, in the West End and around the world since its debut. Additionally, Daldry also touches upon his other two recent Fathom Events seen in movie theaters worldwide, SKYLIGHT and THE AUDIENCE, both of which will also be arriving on Broadway later this season in new productions. Plus, Daldry comments for the very first time on the feature film adaptation of stage sensation WICKED and working with Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman on bringing it to the screen, as well as offers his thoughts on the importance of properties such as BILLY ELLIOT and WICKED targeting the youth demographic in general. All of that, his early career success directing Caryl Churchill's remarkably prescient and powerful A NUMBER and FAR AWAY as well as an update on his new Peter Morgan TV series collaboration created especially for Netflix titled THE CROWN and much, much more in this quick yet compelling chat with one of the industry's best!
