Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket) and Maira Kalman

You must have all heard of Daniel Handler and Maira Kalman's fabulous new book, Why We Broke Up. And that they are on tour. Well, they will be at Kepler's on Thursday, February 2, at 7:00 p.m.

Yes, it was originally scheduled to be held at the Menlo Park Council Chambers, but it has been changed and I just want everyone to know that it will now be held in-store. So, for anyone who has ever been heartbroken, join us. Share your stories on our board (see left). Hear their stories and join us for an unforgettable evening.

I'm telling you why we broke up, Ed. I'm writing it in this letter, the whole truth of why it happened.

Min Green and Ed Slaterton are breaking up, so Min is writing Ed a letter and giving him a box. Inside the box is why they broke up. Two bottle caps, a movie ticket, a folded note, a box of matches, a protractor, books, a toy truck, a pair of ugly earrings, a comb from a motel room, and every other item collected over the course of a giddy, intimate, heartbreaking relationship. Item after item is illustrated and accounted for, and then the box, like a girlfriend, will be dumped.

And even better: we are giving out signing line tickets with every copy of the book you buy from us. And these tickets will be numbered. So the earlier you buy the book, the less time you will spend in line waiting to meet and get your book signed by Daniel and Maira. Can’t get better than that!

And if you come on Thursday, stop me and introduce yourself. Always a pleasure to meet you
