Update on our Upcoming Events
Here's a quick update on the events at the Regulator for the next week.
It's spring! When a young/middle age/older man's fancy turns to....planting tomatoes! Tomorrow night we host the author of the best book on growing 'maters I've ever seen. And he's bringing seedlings that you can buy as well.
If your spring fancies turn toward other subjects, you'll definitely want to come to Courtney Maum's event next Tuesday, and see her interview Monti founder Jeff Polish and Chapel Hill writer Daniel Wallace about the love lessons they have learned over the years!

Lori Horvitz grew up ashamed of her Eastern European Jewish roots, confused about her sexuality, and idolizing the "shiksa in her living room," a blonde all-American girl whose photo came in a double frame and was displayed next to a family photo from a bar mitzvah. Unable to join the "happy blonde families," she becomes a "hippie chick" who travels the world in search of ... something. The Girls of Usually chronicles each trip, each romance, each experiment in reinventing herself that draws her closer to discovering the secret door through which she can escape from deep-rooted patterns and accept her own cultural, ethnic, and sexual identity. The author will be in the store to read and sign books.
YA BOOK CLUB
Friday, April 17, 5 p.m.
Come one, come all to the greatest book club of all! Do you love YA? Are you interested in discussing or starting to read YA? The we'd love to have you! This is a book club for all ages, the only requirement is that you are interested in the young adult genre. (This is to discuss the book alone, not a writer's group).

I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You: A Novel tells the story of thirty-four-year-old British artist Richard Haddon who is too busy mourning the loss of his American mistress to a famous cutlery designer to appreciate his fortune. But after Richard discovers that a painting he originally made for his wife, Anne-when they were first married and deeply in love-has sold, it shocks him back to reality and he resolves to reinvest wholeheartedly in his family life...just in time for his wife to learn the extent of his affair. Rudderless and remorseful, Richard embarks on a series of misguided attempts to win Anne back while focusing his creative energy on a provocative art piece to prove that he's still the man she once loved. Courtney Maum will be in the store to read and sign books.
Inspired by a memorable passage in her book-in which the protagonist films his parents as they answer questions about their marriage of 40 years-Courtney is enlisting volunteers to be interviewed live at her events about love lessons (the good, the bad, the ugly) learned over the years. The two people she'll be interviewing at The Regulator are author Daniel Wallace and The Monti founder, Jeff Polish.Throughout her book tour, she will share images, impressions, and more-tagged #lovenotes on social media.
