Marcus was only three years old when he, his mother, and his sister who were all battling tuberculosis walked seventy-five miles to a hospital in Ethiopia. His mother died, but Marcus and his sister recovered, and one year later they were adopted by a white family in Sweden. It was there that Marcus’s new grandmother sparked in him a lifelong passion for cooking. Markus went on to study in Europe and eventually ended up in New York City where his talent and ambition earned him rave reviews, awards and a place on Top Chef Masters. This story gives the readers a view into the European culinary schooling and the issues of race not only in the kitchen but in the community at large. - Cindy

RESCHEDULED – 6PM & 7PM THURSDAY, DECEMBER 6 MEET LEGENDARY FOUNDING KISS DRUMMER Peter Criss: Makeup to Breakup
Legendary founding KISS drummer Peter "Catman" Criss signs his memoir Makeup to Breakup: My Life In and Out of KISS.
Criss has lived an incredible life in music, from the streets of Brooklyn to the ultimate heights of rock 'n' roll success and excess. He conquered the rock world—composing and singing his band's all-time biggest hit, "Beth" (1976)—but he also faced the perils of stardom and his own mortality, including drug abuse, treatment in 1982, near-suicides, two broken marriages, and a hard-won battle with male breast cancer. Makeup to Breakup is the definitive account of one of rock's most iconic figures.
Booksigning ticket is free when you purchase Makeup to Breakup at Changing Hands Bookstore.
Ticket indicates your assigned signing line time and group. If ordering online, please indicate whether you prefer 6pm or 7pm entry in the "order comments" field.
This is a booksigning only. Criss will not sign memorabilia (records, CDs, posters, drum heads, and so forth).
No flash photography or video recording.
Due to time constraints, Peter will personalize books with first names only on request and cannot pose for photos.
