Start: 6:00 pm
Actress Dawn Wells will discuss and sign her new book What Would Mary Ann Do?: A Guide to Life ($16.95 Taylor Trade). As the sweet, polite, and thoughtful Mary Ann in the hit series Gilligan’s Island, Wells was often positioned against the glamorous and exotic Ginger Grant, played by Tina Louise, prompting many to ask: Are you a Ginger or a Mary Ann? This book not only helps readers answer that question for themselves but also sends the inspirational message that yes, good girls do finish first. Part self-help, part memoir, and part humor—with a little classic TV nostalgia for good measure—Wells’ book contains twelve chapters on everything from how Mary Ann would respond to changes in today’s culture to addressing issues confronting single women and mothers. This event is a booksigning only, Ms. Wells will not be making remarks or taking questions. A limited number of signing line tickets will be available beginning Tuesday, September 9, at 9:00 am, with the purchase of What Would Mary Ann Do? at any Tattered Cover location. Dawn Wells will sign either one copy of her new book, or one piece of memorabilia per ticketed customer.
Start: 7:00 pm
Please note: This event has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience. Colorado native America Hart directs the MA Creative Writing Program at London Metropolitan University. Hart will read from and sign her debut novel Into the Silence: The Fishing Story ($15.95 Red Hen Press), a genre-bending, time-warping story that weaves together voices and motives, past and present, into a haunting, polyphonic song of striking and original beauty.
