Vroman’s keeps bringing big authors to town. At the book signings, you get to see the authors in person, hear them describe the reason and purpose behind their books, and get your own copies signed.
This upcoming Tuesday, Feb. 13, for example, the bookstore has arranged an evening with Deepak Chopra, who is the author of more than 85 books that have been translated into over 43 languages, including multiple New York Times bestsellers. Chopra will be introducing and signing his new book The Healing Self, described as “a revolutionary new plan to supercharge your immunity and stay well for life.” Vroman’s must be expecting lots of people, because they scheduled this event at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre (4401 West 8th St., in Los Angeles 90005). It will be held from 7 to 8:30 pm. General admission tickets (including the book) are $36 plus fees and tax, and general admission for two (also with a copy of the book) is $44 plus fees and tax.

A second book signing that we suspect will be enormously popular is Chelsea Clinton’s visit on Wednesday, Mar. 21, from 6 to 7:30 pm, this time at Vroman’s (695 East Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena 91101). She will be signing her book She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History. The event is described as “signing only,” so sounds like she won’t be doing much talking, but one ticket will admit up to four family members (and only one member is required to purchase the book). This release is the companion to Chelsea’s prior bestseller, She Persisted. Like it, this new book is perfect for all the girls and women out there that are ready to change the world. Tickets are $17.99 plus fees and tax and can be purchased by following this link.
We are sure these events will sell out, and they’re only two out of many planned by the bookstore. You can see a complete list of events on their calendar.
