April 19 (Tuesday) 7 pm -- Flyleaf Books hosts Ready Player One author Ernest Cline for the paperback tour of his novel Armada. "Zack Lightman has spent his life dreaming. Dreaming that the real world could be a little more like the countless science-fiction books, movies, and videogames he's spent his life consuming. Dreaming that one day, some fantastic, world-altering event will shatter the monotony of his humdrum existence and whisk him off on some grand space-faring adventure. But hey, there's nothing wrong with a little escapism, right? After all, Zack tells himself, he knows the difference between fantasy and reality. He knows that here in the real world, aimless teenage gamers with anger issues don t get chosen to save the universe. And then he sees the flying saucer."
April 27 (Wednesday) 6 pm -- Flyleaf Books presents (at Cat's Cradle, 300 E Main St, Carrboro) NY Times bestseller Felicia Day with her memoir You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost). Co-Sponsored by NC Comicon.
