Sarah Erdreich will be in L.A. at Book Soup Thursday, March 21 at 7:00pm to discuss her new book, Generation Roe.
It is about time, forty years after Roe v. Wade, to finally demystify abortion. One-third of all American women will have an abortion by the time they are 45, and most of those women are already mothers. Yet, the topic remains taboo. Even amidst MTV’s 16 & Pregnant, depictions of or even discussion about abortion remains almost nonexistent. In Generation Roe, Sarah Erdreich gives us a new way of thinking about abortion–one based in the reality of women’s lives.Sarah Erdreich Book Launch Thursday, March 21st @ 7:30pm Book Soup 8818 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA

On Wednesday, November 28th, Greg Sumner, author of Unstuck in Time: A Journey Through Kurt Vonnegut’s Life and Novels, will be visiting Book Soup in West Hollywood to discuss and sign his acclaimed book.
In Unstuck in Time, Gregory Sumner guides us, with insight and passion, through a biography of fifteen of Kurt Vonnegut’s best known works, his fourteen novels starting with Player Piano (1952) all the way to an epilogue on his last book, A Man Without a Country(2005), to illustrate the quintessential American writer’s profound engagement with the “American Dream” in its various forms.
“Gregory D. Sumner celebrates what he playfully identifies as the ‘Kurt Vonnegut road show’ with a tribute that is enlightening and entertaining. I read with wonder and delight the biographical sketches so gracefully fused with a montage of Vonnegut stories and the ideas they dramatize. Unstuck in Time is an achievement of scholarship illuminated by a fan’s contagious enthusiasm.” —Sidney Offit, Curator-emeritus George Polk Journalism Awards
