Author Eastin DeVerna: Book Signing

July 7 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm

Main Street Books – 126 S. Main Street

By day, North Carolina resident Eastin DeVerna works in international education, but by night, he is an avid comic book reader and creator. His latest project, Samurai Grandpa, is the culmination of a partnership with cartoonist Shawn Daley and a successful Kickstarter campaign. Meet DeVerna at Main Street Books on Saturday morning to talk samurais, grandpas, and graphic novels.

When Samurai Grandpa begins, protagonist Ojichan has left the blade behind to live out his remaining days with his family in peace. But when a mysterious figure from his past resurfaces and his granddaughter goes missing, he is forced to set out on one last adventure. As he does, he must explore the depths of his own past, face monsters new and old, and question the choices which led to this final mission.

 

Author Kathy Izard: Reading + Signing

July 7 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Main Street Books – 126 S. Main Street

Main Street Books is thrilled to host Charlotte hero and local author Kathy Izard for a reading and signing of her inspirational memoir, The Hundred Story Home. The Hundred Story Home leads readers on an inspirational journey that begins with a question, “Where are the beds?” and ends with over one hundred formerly homeless people living in homes of their own.

Author, Kathy Izard, was enjoying a comfortable existence when she came face to face with the reality that while her dedicated service at the community soup kitchen might be feeding her soul, it would never solve the bigger needs of the homeless population. Confronting the question of where are the beds? Kathy realized that she had been called to take on what seemed like an insurmountable task to build housing for Charlotte’s homeless.

Woven together with this uplifting story of a call to social action is Kathy’s personal struggle with faith, forgiveness and fulfillment. In telling her story, Kathy invites you to consider rewriting your own. What’s calling you? And as crazy at it seems, it may be crazier not to try.
