Liberty Tales - Book Launch
2015 marked the 800th anniversary of the first Magna Carta, and Liberty Tales is a collection of stories and poems that take a wide-ranging collection of responses to the issues of liberty, both personal and legal. Some relate to specific clauses of the original document, while others are more concerned with how we experience and search after freedom in the 21st century. This launch event will feature stories from Katy Darby, Alison Lock, Cherry Potts, Anna Fodorova (read by Carrie Cohen) and David Guy (read by Cliff Chapman), along with poems from Bernie Howley and Jeremy Dixon.

Book Release Party: "The Tao of Chip Kelly"
The official book release of my book about the new coach of the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles (and former coach of the Oregon Ducks) will be at Theatre Exile before the 8pm showing of "The Philly Fan," a one-man show about sports. This is not a biography or Xs and Os book, but rather a look at the philosophy and innovative management strategies underlying Kelly's success at Oregon (46-7 over 4 years, a BCS bowl every year). The Tao of the title is not glib; I argue that -- wittingly or not -- Kelly's football programs are near-perfect implementations of Taoist principles such as The Uncarved Block, tzu-jan, minimizing ego and emotion, and the pursuit of spontaneity and flexibility through long experience and focused, humble observation. Book signing and reading at 7, plus a Q&A after the play.
