I was raised in Santa Barbara, CA, where, in seventh grade, I was dumped into my first trash can. So begins the biography of Teddy Steinkellner.

Co-Creator of The Daily Show at Vroman’s

Have you ever heard of Lizz Winstead? Neither had I, until poking around the upcoming Vroman’s events and seeing that Mizz Winstead will be there this Thursday promoting her new essay collection, Lizz Free or Die, and that she’s a co-creator of The Daily Show. Poke around a little more and it turns out she was […]

Connie Rice at Vroman’s

If you’re a young whippersnapper like me, maybe the first you heard of Connie Rice was on KCRW earlier this week, talking about suing the LAPD into reform and meeting child assassins in housing projects. If you’re not a whippersnapper, and you’ve paid attention to the recent history of law enforcement and civil rights in […]

Red Hen Press (!) at Vroman’s

As attentive readers are probably aware, yours truly works a day job at Red Hen Press, a non-profit, independent publisher of fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction.

Jane Lynch at Vroman’s

Jane Lynch wrote a book. She’s probably best known for Glee these days, and has been getting an absolute ton of work for the past few years—Party Down is a recent favorite—and, jeez, Best in Show was ten years ago? And now she has a book. And this is probably the wrong thing to say […]
