John Connolly will Present his Hardcover Novel ~ He ~ at a Special Preview Event!

EVENT OVERVIEW:  John Connolly, Internationally Bestselling Author will join us for a Special Preview Book Event for his New Hardcover Novel He, including a Screening of Laurel & Hardy Short Films followed by an Author Q&A and Author Meet & Greet Booksigning!  This Event is Co-Presented by Rainy Day Books & Glenwood Arts Theatre (Fine Arts Group).

ABOUT THE NOVEL HE:  John Connolly recreates the Golden Age of Hollywood in this moving, literary portrait of two men who found their true selves in a comedic partnership.  When Stan Laurel was paired with Oliver Hardy, affectionately known as Babe, the history of comedy--not to mention their personal and professional lives--would be altered forever. Laurel followed in the wake of Charlie Chaplin, who blazed a trail from the vaudeville stages of England to the dynamic, if often seedy and highly volatile, movie studios of Los Angeles in the early 20th century.  Awed like everyone else by Chaplin's genius (and ambition and cruelty), Laurel despaired of ever finding his own path to success--or happiness.  But success and happiness did find Laurel, following the inspired decision by impresario Hal Roach to put him and Oliver Hardy together on screen.  Initially a calculated marriage of opposites in an era of highly disposable short films, the partnership bloomed into a professional and personal relationship of lifelong depth.

ABOUT JOHN CONNOLLY: John Connolly is the Author of the Charlie Parker Mysteries, The Book of Lost Things, the Samuel Johnson Novels for Young Adults and, with his partner, Jennifer Ridyard, the Co-Author of the Chronicles of the Invaders.  His Debut, Every Dead Thing, swiftly launched him into the top rank of thriller writers, and all his subsequent novels have been Sunday Times Bestsellers.  He was the first non-American Writer to win the US Shamus Award, and the first Irish Writer to be awarded the Edgar by the Mystery Writers of America.
