Collectors Book Salon: Mark Edlund

Book-lovers and collectors meet at Weller Book Works Collectors' Book Salons on the last Friday of each month, January through October. Serious and frivolous bibliophiles meet in our Rare Book Department for friendship conversation, edification and bibliolust. We start at 6:30 pm and at 7:15, an invited bibliophile leads the Collectors' Chat about a topic of her or his particular knowledge and passion. And at each salon there is also a special deal on rare books. The Collector’s Chat in our July Collectors’ Book Salon will feature Mark J. Edlund, Doctor of Psychiatry. In 2015 Mark spoke to our guests about uncommon bibliographies regarding the Mormon Church and the West, and showed us some of his collection of association copies of books pertaining to Mormon and Western Americana. We are happy that he has agreed to return for another chat, Bedrock Western Americana: The Arthur H Clark Company and the Lakeside Classics. Few publishers of Western history have reputations and catalogs as impressive as Clark and Lakeside. For over a century Arthur H. Clark has laid wide fields of first-hand source documents before the eyes of readers. Alternately, the Lakeside Press has reprinted important Americana in high quality diminutive “handy” editions. Both companies have high production values. When I encounter a book published by either, i know it will be worthy content in a good package. Join us and Mark Edlund on July 27th.

An Evening with Randall Munroe

How thrilled are we? Weller Book Works gets to host Randall Munroe in a Q&A about his forthcoming book, How To: Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Real World Problems, due out in September.

We're selling books & tickets online at https://www.wellerbookworks.com for an evening with Munroe on the 14th.

The Book: For any task you might want to do, there's a right way, a wrong way, and a way so monumentally complex, excessive, and inadvisable that no one would ever try it. How To is a guide to the third kind of approach. It's full of highly impractical advice for everything from landing a plane to digging a hole. Bestselling author and cartoonist Randall Munroe explains how to predict the weather by analyzing the pixels of your Facebook photos. He teaches you how to tell if you're a baby boomer or a 90's kid by measuring the radioactivity of your teeth. He offers tips for taking a selfie with a telescope, crossing a river by boiling it, and powering your house by destroying the fabric of space-time. And if you want to get rid of the book once you're done with it, he walks you through your options for proper disposal, including dissolving it in the ocean, converting it to a vapor, using tectonic plates to subduct it into the Earth's mantle, or launching it into the Sun. By exploring the most complicated ways to do simple tasks, Munroe doesn't just make things difficult for himself and his readers. As he did so brilliantly in What If?, Munroe invites us to explore the most absurd reaches of the possible. Full of clever infographics and amusing illustrations, How To is a delightfully mind-bending way to better understand the science and technology underlying the things we do every day. Randall Munroe is the author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers What If? and Thing Explainer, the science question-and-answer blog What If, and the popular webcomic xkcd. A former NASA roboticist, he left the agency in 2006 to draw comics on the internet full-time. He lives in Massachusetts.
