To kick off the holiday season, she is bringin her award winning red velvet cupcakes (mmmmm) and we'll all just hang out and celebrate! Michael will be here to sign some marvelous books about Chanukah and dogs, (but not dogs celebrating Chanukah because that would be silly). Among the titles are the bestelling Pop-up Chanukah Lights which he did with paper engineer Robert Sabuda. He has also done other great books including My Dog!: A Kids' Guide to Keeping a Happy & Healthy Pet which would be a great gift too! To order autographed copies of any of these books, put "AUTOGRAPHED" in your subject line at checkout with any special instructions. Cupcakes! Yay!

MICHAEL ROSEN will discuss and sign WHAT ELSE BUT HOME: SEVEN BOYS AND AN AMERICAN JOURNEY BETWEEN THE PROJECTS AND THE PENTHOUSE, the remarkable story of a very special family. In the aftermath of 9/11, Rosen’s business destroyed but his family safe, he and his wife began the slow, unexpected process of taking in young boys from a nearby project, one after another. Rosen writes of the lessons learned, about mutual responsibility, and the need to reach out and care for those around you. Honest, painful, and funny, What Else But Home was described by one critic as "a valentine to America's diversity - and indeed to every enterprise of courage, chaos, and love that results in magic". Rosen was a real estate investor and CEO of a Wall Street firm and holds degrees in anthropology and business. (booksense)… (mer)
