Event

Denis Leary at Anderson's Bookshop
Join Anderson's Bookshops for a special event with Denis Leary and his new book, "Why We Don't Suck!" This will be a presentation and Q&A event only; there will be no signing or photo line.  Your book will be pre-signed.

From the author of the bestselling "Why We Suck" comes a searing comic look at these divisive times, skewering liberals and conservatives alike with a signature dose of sarcasm and common sense.

Your ticket includes one copy of the new book and admission for one or two people, depending on the type you choose.  You will receive your book when you arrive at the event.  They will NOT be available for pick up before that time.  

Here's what you get with each ticket:
Admittance for one person (two if you purchase that package)
A pre-signed copy of the new book, "Why We Don't Suck" handed to you when you arrive
A presentation
Audience Q&A

Here's what you shouldn't expect:
A personalization (your name in the book)
An autograph in the book that you bought elsewhere
The opportunity to meet Denis
A photo of you and Denis

Seating is first come, first served. Please carefully note the event start time and plan to arrive before that time.  We cannot guarantee the length of time that any author will be with us.

Tickets are non-refundable. If you miss the event, in order to receive your book you will need to contact us within 30 days of the event.

PLEASE NOTE that this event follows the author's and publisher's wishes and may mean limits on photos and the number of signed or personalized books.  Anderson's Bookshop is not responsible for changes made by the author to the guidelines prior to or during the event.  Your understanding is appreciated.

Denis Leary is a five-time loser at the Emmy Awards. And the Golden Globes. He hopes to one day also lose an Oscar, a Grammy, and a Tony. His first literary foray Why We Suck: A Feel Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy and Stupid was a New York Times bestseller but not nominated for the National Book Award. In his long and storied entertainment career, Leary has also never won The Stanley Cup, The Nobel Peace Prize, or an argument with his wife. He looks forward to playing Kellyanne Conway in the President Trump biopic.

More about the book:  
In an America so gluten-free that a box of jelly donuts is now a bigger threat than Vladimir Putin, where college kids are more afraid of Ann Coulter than HIV, its time for someone to stand up and make us all smell the covfefe. Dr. Denis Leary is that guy.

With WHY WE DONT SUCK, Denis is on a devoted mission to #MakeAmericaLaughAgain. Using the clamorous political atmosphere as a starting point, hes taking a bipartisan look at the topics we all hold so dear to our patriotic heartsincluding family, freedom, and the seemingly endless search for fame and diet vodka. Denis will answer important questions like: When will Hillary blame herself? Why does Beyoncé think hes Bryan Adams? And why doesnt Denis follow the millennial lead and post pictures of his food on social media? (Spoiler alert: Hes too busy actually eating it.) Not that he has anything against millennials: When it comes to science, math, and technological advances, this generation has done more in three and a half decades than any other age group in history. What did my generation do? Cocaine and quaaludes mostly. With a side order of really stupid haircuts. Dr. Leary is here to remind us of what truly makes America great, even though were #7 on the most recent list of Best Countries To Live In. Which may sound bad but means we still make the playoffs.
