Visit us at Booth 326 on Friday to meet two new authors and their books:



Dianna E. Anderson’s incisive Problematic: How Toxic Callout Culture Is Destroying Feminism (Potomac Books, 2018) takes on the stereotype of the perpetually dissatisfied feminist. Anderson will be participating in the Moveable Feast from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 4. Her signing will be on Friday, October 5 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.

On her way to a soccer game with a fellow teammate on August 1, 2007, Kimberly J. Brown experienced the collapse of the I-35W Bridge Collapse firsthand, falling 114 feet in her teammate’s car to the Mississippi River. Although terrified, injured, and in shock, she survived. In this sobering memoir and exposé, Brown recounts her harrowing experience in The I-35W Bridge Collapse: A Survivor’s Account of America’s Crumbling Infrastructure (Potomac Books, 2018). Her signing will be on Friday, October 5 from 11:00 a.m. to noon.
