Author Event: Sat. August 12, 2017 from 11am to 2pm

Please join us on Saturday, August 12, 2017 from 11am to 2pm for Reap 23 by J.J. Perry.

Future nations, surviving a devastating pandemic, collaborate in the Repopulation, Expansion, and Annexation Program (REAP) designed to send one-way missions to twenty-five potentially habitable moons or planets within five thousand light-years from Earth. Four couples staff each mission with two critical goals: populating the new planet and sending a message back that the orb is habitable. REAP 23, the twenty-third and longest mission, takes eight months of gravitational acceleration to achieve 70 percent of the speed of light. Despite extensive psychological screening and years of training, the stress of pending hibernation ending in finding a planet that is unsuitable results in conflicts on many levels. Insanity, sabotage, mutiny, violence, adultery, and death mar the ideological journey before entering ultrahibernation under the care of robots for thousands of years.

Please join us on Saturday, July 8, 2017 from 11am to 3pm for The Low Road by Martin McCaw.

The night Mark Roundtree's mother dies, he's told she had a lover who was murdered. Memories from 44 years ago take on new meaning: erased tracks in the snow, a hushed conversation in the church's cloakroom, his father sitting on a bed reading old letters, and a child nobody will talk about. Returning to his childhood home in search of the truth triggers other memories and a troubling question: how did a naive, churchgoing farm boy become such a con man?

Please join us on Friday, June 16, 2017 from 11am to 3pm for The Stuff of Family Life by Michelle Janning

Like an archaeologist studying ancient civilizations through the things they left behind, Janning excavates contemporary life through our houses and possessions, from childhood stuffed animals and security blankets to retirement homes and senior living centers.

What does where you store old love letters say about their significance? Why do adults feel out of place in their childhood bedrooms? Janning takes readers through the stages of life – from dating and marriage to parenting and aging – that are usually kept behind closed doors. From online valentines to the growing popularity of “man caves,” The Stuff of Family Life looks not only at what large demographic studies say about family dynamics but also what our lives—and the stuff in them—say about how we relate to each other.

Please join us on Sat. May 27, 2017 from 11am to 3pm for Villain's Assistant by Carley Hibbert.

Also, special performance by Carson Schmidt at 12pm.

My name is Carley Hibbert and I released my debut novel Villain’s Assistant February 2017. This young adult fantasy is a story about a young man who is about to set out to accomplish his one ambition: to be the best villain’s assistant the world has ever known. But what if he stumbles on a better choice? I would love to send you a copy of my exciting new book for review. 

About the Book:
Secret designs and dark ambition have split the kingdom of Lam in half. Benjamin Black, raised among exiled villains and traitors on the Thieves’ Plain, learned enough nasty tricks to claw his way to valedictorian at the Villains’ Academy. Now he's set off on a quest to gain his rightful position as villain’s assistant to the newest archvillain. Benjamin’s dark future seems assured.

After sabotage cuts his employment goals short, a surprising new opportunity rises from the ashes. His choice may lead to something even more ambitious: reuniting a shattered kingdom—a task that will take all of Benjamin's evil genius to survive.

A gripping page-turner, Villain’s Assistant will keep you guessing until the last diabolical page.
