Top 5 “Literary” Events in November

1. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

November 4 at Rollins College
One of Time Magazine’s “Heroes for the Planet,” Kennedy will discuss “Green Gold Rush: A Vision for Energy Independence, Jobs and National Wealth.” Sounds like an important discussion to us!

Yes, he’s one of the Kennedys and, yes, he’s pretty passionate about doing good in the world. This is a must-see ticket!

2. James Robert Smith: The Flock

November 14 at Barnes and Noble, Colonial
Author of more than 60 short stories, comic strips published by Marvel, and is the co-editor of Evermore, The Flock is his first novel…sounds fascinating!

So, if you need a little escape from reality, a little action and adventure, perhaps The Flock and its author are just what you need!

3. Anthony Flint

November 3 at Rollins College
Calling all builders and planners: Flint will discuss the story of his book Wrestling with Moses: How Jane Jacobs Took on New York’s Master Builder and Transformed the American City holds lessons for the 21st Century City.

Don’t believe in the power of the “little guy” anymore? Well, hear about how a common housewife took on the Yale-educated and Oxford Phd power elite to help shape the New York City we know and love today.

4. Orville Schell: Climate Change and the Melting Glaciers of Himalayas – Why It Matters

November 11 at Rollins College
Schell is a journalist who specializes in US-China relations and has been a contributor on PBS, NBC, CBS, and had a 60 Minutes program win an Emmy. He will shed light on how the other side of the world (and the top of the world) can have far-reaching consequences.

Schell will also hold a second lecture at Rollins College on November 12 entitled: What’s Happening in China and Why It Matters: Q & A with Orville Schell

5. Timothy Michael Carson: When the Truth Lies

November 11 at Barnes and Noble, Colonial
Come out to support Orlando resident and author in his debut novel!

From the book’s description: “When the Truth Lies is an intricate urban tale of love lost and found through the intertwining lives of four engaging characters all in pursuit of love, happiness and success.”

Now how’s that for a debut novel!?
