Deborah Harkness, Book of Life, at the Central & Unser Library
Bookworks, Tuesday, June 9 at 7pm
Bookworks in conjunction with ABC Library features Deborah Harkness on paperback tour for her novel, Book of Life! We are celebrating the new Central & Unser library for this event. The new, state of the art library is located just off of I-40 at Central and Unser. Deborah will be reading and signing books in the community room. A place in the signing line requires a purchase from Bookworks, on site or prior to the event. Entry to the event does require a ticket. Tickets are free and can be reserved online HERE or you can pick one up at Bookworks. About Book of Life: After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches--with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency. In the trilogy's final volume, Harkness deepens her themes of power and passion, family and caring, past deeds and their present consequences. In ancestral homes and university laboratories, using ancient knowledge and modern science, from the hills of the Auvergne to the palaces of Venice and beyond, the couple at last learn what the witches discovered so many centuries ago. Deborah Harkness is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night, the first two volumes in the All Souls Trilogy. She lives in Los Angeles. PRAISE "Weaving an extraordinarily rich story of magic and science, history and fiction, passion and power, secrets and truths, Harkness delivers an unforgettable and spellbinding finale that's not to be missed."--USA Today "Pure escapist summer fun."--Jodi Picoult "Harkness has immersed and spellbound readers with her alternative universe. . . . Her ambitious melding of scientific and historical detail is inventive and brings surprising depth. . . . "The Book of Life" brims with sensuality, intrigue, violence and much-welcome humor."--Los Angeles Times "There is no shortage of action in this sprawling sequel, and nearly every chapter brings a wrinkle to the tale. The storytelling is lively and energetic, and Diana remains an appealing heroine even as her life becomes ever more extraordinary. A delightful wrap-up to the trilogy."--Publishers Weekly "Harkness herself proves to be quite the alchemist as she combines elements of magic, history, romance, and science, transforming them into a compelling journey through time, space, and geography. By bridging the gaps between Harry Potter, Twilight, and Outlander fans, Harkness artfully appeals to a broad range of fantasy lovers."--Booklist "The adventure never lets up. . . . History, science, and the unpredictable actions of paranormal characters with hidden agendas all swirl together to create a not-to-be-missed finale to a stellar series."--Library Journal
