"Does that piano work?" Jason wondered. This impromptu performance of "Dracula's Lament" followed, at the First Parish Church in Harvard Square on September 12, 2014. Harvard Book Store and 826 Boston were thrilled to host the evening's program with multitalented actor, writer, and musician Jason Segel and 826 Boston program coordinator Karen Sama for a reading, discussion, and signing of Segel's hilariously frightening middle-grade novel Nightmares!

Details

Nightmares! is the first book in a trilogy about a boy named Charlie and a group of kids who must face their fears to save their town, co-written with New York Times bestselling author Kirsten Miller.
 
Sleeping has never been so scary. And now waking up is even worse!
 
Charlie Laird has several problems.
 
1. His dad married a woman he is sure moonlights as a witch.
2. He had to move into her purple mansion, which is NOT a place you want to find yourself after dark.
3. He can’t remember the last time sleeping wasn’t a nightmarish prospect. Like even a nap.
 
What Charlie doesn’t know is that his problems are about to get a whole lot more real. Nightmares can ruin a good night’s sleep, but when they start slipping out of your dreams and into the waking world—that’s a line that should never be crossed.
 
And when your worst nightmares start to come true . . . well, that’s something only Charlie can face. And he’s going to need all the help he can get, or it might just be lights-out for Charlie Laird. For good.

About Author(s)

Jason Segel used to have nightmares just like Charlie, and just like Charlie, he's learned that the things we're most afraid of are the things that can make us strong... if we're brave enough to face them. Jason likes acting, writing, making music, and hanging out with his friends. Sometimes he writes movies. Sometimes he writes songs for movies. Sometimes he stars in those movies and sings those songs. You might know him from The Muppets and Despicable Me. Your parents might know him from other stuff. Nightmares! is his first novel.
