Family Bookstore is pleased to host the launch of two new books by Mcsweeneys:
There Are Many of Us by Spike Jonze & It Is Right to Draw Their Fur by Dave Eggers. Eggers will conduct a live Q&A with Jonze, followed by audience questions. Both will be signing books afterward. Also, Co-composer of the soundtrack to Jonze's film I'm Here, Aska, will perform an acoustic live set to begin the evening filled with gorgeous photography, behind-the-scenes ephemera, and funny, inspiring interviews, There Are Many of Us celebrates the uniquely spontaneous making of Spike Jonze's new movie I'm Here, a boy-meets-girl love story, set in LA, experienced by robots. The book includes an original CD soundtrack as well as a DVD of the thirty-minute movie I'm Here, with special bonus content.
It Is Right to Draw Their Fur is Dave Eggers's first collection of drawings. Most of these works are of unusual mammals, most often accompanied by slogans with ancient, heroic, or just plain odd overtones. This full-color package will be a combination of 26 large-sized prints and an accompanying booklet.
