IAIN S. THOMAS - READING AND SIGNING

Submitted Book Signing Events Moving away from Thomas’ previous themes of love and heartbreak, “Every Word You Cannot Say” explores loss, growth and self-love, and is the first wholly original book of poetry Thomas has written in several years. A hallmark of Thomas’ popular poetry, each poem is written directly to the reader, creating intimacy and space where readers can feel empowered to speak the truths that are hardest to say.  “May this book find the person it needs to,” says Thomas.  “May they find every word they were looking for.” Besides being about Thomas’ own struggles with depression, anxiety and self-doubt, and the things everyone struggles with at some point, “Every Word You Cannot Say” is a response to today’s incredibly divided, isolated world. Thomas believes that we can communicate more and faster than ever before, but we’re talking to each other less than ever, and that makes us feel afraid and alone. He believes that we all, “Compare our behind-the-scenes to everyone else’s highlights reel. This boo… Book(s) Being Signed: Every Word You Cannot Say. Author's Name(s): Iain S. Thomas.

Brian Raftery

Submitted Book Signing Events In 1999, Hollywood as we know it exploded: Fight Club. The Matrix. Office Space. Election. The Blair Witch Project. The Sixth Sense. Being John Malkovich. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. American Beauty. The Virgin Suicides. Boys Don’t Cry. The Best Man. Three Kings. Magnolia. Those are just some of the landmark titles released in a dizzying movie year, one in which a group of daring filmmakers and performers pushed cinema to new limits—and took audiences along for the ride. Freed from the restraints of budget, technology (or even taste), they produced a slew of classics that took on every topic imaginable, from sex to violence to the end of the world. The result was a highly unruly, deeply influential set of films that would not only change filmmaking, but also give us our first glimpse of the coming twenty-first century. It was a watershed moment that also produced The Sopranos; Apple’s Airport; Wi-Fi; and Netflix’s unlimited DVD rentals. , Best. Movie. Year.
