CANCELLED --- Jason Heller -- "Strange Stars"


Jason Heller will speak about and sign his new book, Strange Stars: David Bowie, Pop Music, and the Decade Sci-Fi Exploded, on Thursday, December 6th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
As the 1960s drew to a close, old conventions gave way to a new freedom that celebrated sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll. Science fiction rarely gets credit for its catalyzing effect on this revolution. In Strange Stars, Jason Heller recasts sci-fi and pop music as parallel cultural forces that expanded the horizons of books, music, and out-of-this-world imagery. And of course, the whole scene was led by David Bowie, who hid in the balcony of a movie theater to watch 2001: A Space Odyssey, and came out a changed man.

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased now at the store, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
