Norman Miller, Boston Beer
Porter Square Books, Wednesday, August 27 at 7pm
Since before Patriots like Paul Revere and Sam Adams fermented a revolution in smoky Beantown taverns, beer has been integral to the history of Boston. The city issued its first brewing license in 1630, and breweries like Haffenreffer Brewery and American Brewing Company quickly sprung up. This heady history took a turn for the worse when the American Temperance Movement championed prohibition, nearly wiping out all of the local breweries. In 1984, the amber liquid was revitalized as Jim Koch introduced Samuel Adams craft brews to the Hub and the nation. Shortly after, Harpoon Brewery emerged and became the largest brewery to make all its beers in New England. From the planning of the Boston Tea Party over a pint at Green Dragon Tavern to the renaissance of the burgeoning craft brewing scene, join author and "Beer Nut" Norman Miller as he savors the sudsy history of brewing in the Hub.

Norman Miller grew up in the birthplace of Johnny Appleseed and plastic pink lawn flamingoes: Leominster, Massachusetts. Despite being a late bloomer as a beer drinker, he has been writing the Beer Nut column for the MetroWest Daily News in Framingham, Massachusetts, and the GateHouse Media family of newspapers since 2006, as well as a blog of the same name.

Currently, Norman lives in his childhood home in Leominster with his dog Foxy, his cats Trouble and Tweak and his prized possession, Beatrice the beer fridge, which is always stocked up with Boston beers.

Teen Book Club
Hudson Public Library, Wednesday, August 27 at 8pm
This month the Teen Book Club is reading "As easy as falling off the face of the earth" by Lynne Rae Perkins. Pick up a copy at the adult circulation desk!
Sixteen-year-old Ry opens a letter enroute to a summer program informing him that camp has been canceled because "a statistically improbable number of things have gone wrong." He hops off the train in Montana to figure out what to do, and his own series of improbable misfortunes begins—the train moves on without him (but with all his stuff), leaving him alone with a dying cell phone in the precise middle of nowhere. At exactly the same time, every member of his family is rendered unreachable by similar twists of fate. Ry strikes out across the country on a riotous journey of misadventures.

Candy Leonard, Beatleness
Porter Square Books, Thursday, August 28 at 7pm
"I love this book! The beautifully written Beatleness will not only bring to life all the excitement for those that weren't living yet during the Beatle years, it will cause major goosebumps, all over again, to those who were there. It's an incredibly hip and astute account of all the Beatles' major happenings that affected so many people around the world who were riveted to their every move. I can't wait to read it again!" -- Will Lee, Grammy Award-winning bass player and studio musician, Late Show with David Letterman and Fab Faux

Beatleness is the story of how the Beatles’ constant presence in the 1960s transformed the childhood and adolescence of millions of American kids and how, through these kids, the Beatles “changed everything.”

Based on hundreds of hours of in-depth fan interviews, Beatleness presents a richly textured account of what it was like to grow up immersed in Beatles—from Ed Sullivan to the Apple rooftop—eagerly awaiting each record and watching their evolution.

Told from the point of view of fans of different ages and genders, the book offers a thoroughly fresh approach to the Beatles’ impact on the fans and the culture, and explains the unique feeling of connection first-generation fans still feel toward the band.

While focusing on the fan experience, Beatleness is also a Beatlecentric cultural history of the 1960s, and paints a detailed picture of young Americans witnessing the events of that transformational decade with the Fab Four by their side.

Beatleness holds a magnifying glass up to the six-year timeline of the fan experience in America and truly allows the reader to experience—or re-experience—what it was like to be a young person during the Beatle years.

Candy Leonard is a Cambridge-based first-generation Beatle fan, intimately familiar with their entire body of work, biography, the commentary on them, and Beatle fan culture. She is also a sociologist with a background in qualitative research, child development, popular culture, and media studies who has written and lectured on the Beatles.

Book Fair to benefit Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research (Andover)
Andover Bookstore, Tuesday, September 2 at 5:30pm
Please Join Us on Tuesday, September 2 from 5:30pm - 7:30pm During which time, 20% of all sales will be donated to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research -

This fall at the Boston Bruins Alumni charity game, all profits are being donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research -- and this year, the Andover Bookstore is hoping to donate as well! From 5:30pm - 7:30pm on Tuesday, September 2, 20% of all in store sales will be donated to the cause! Parkinson's disease is a progressive, neurodegenerative disease that affects the motor system. Those who have PD suffer from difficulties with breathing, balance, movement, and heart function. The disease is caussed by the slow deterioration of the nerve cells in the brain that create dopamine; a natural substance found in the brain that helps control muscle movement throughout the body. There is currently no cure for Parkinson's disease. So please come, buy books, and help support research for Parkinson's, which affects nearly 500,000 people in the United States alone, with an estimated 50,000 Americans newly diagnosed each year.

Timothy Gager, The Thursday Appointments of Bill Sloan
Porter Square Books, Tuesday, September 2 at 7pm
"As the son of two psychoanalysts, I feel qualified in diagnosing Timothy Gager as a very sick human being and a fearless writer. His prose is odd, mordant, and disobedient. Read him at your peril." -- Steve Almond, author of God Bless America: Stories

"Timothy Gager's The Thursday Appointments of Bill Sloan is a gangbusters novel, its characters sharply defined against a backdrop both tense and funny. Bill Sloan is the therapist no one wants, especially since you might say he needs therapy more than his patients. This is a great read." -- Rusty Barnes, co-founder, Night Train Magazine, author of Reckoning

"Timothy Gager blasts another beauty of twisted humanity at its best in The Thursday Appointments of Bill Sloan. Gager steers us 'like a bird without wings' through this hilarious and strangely familiar brood of characters, accelerating and diving down into the intricacies and mania of our own inner pathos. Get a copy!" – Meg Tuite, author of Bound By Blue

Timothy Gager is the author of eleven books of short fiction and poetry. His latest, The Thursday Appointments of Bill Sloan, (Big Table Publishing) is his first novel. He hosts the successful Dire Literary Series in Cambridge, Massachusetts for over thirteen years and is the co-founder of Somerville News Writers Festival. His work appears in over 300 journals, of which nine have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. His work has been read on National Public Radio.

Louisa starts to hope she can find happiness again, but neither of them can outrun his violent past.

Peter May, The Lewis Man
Porter Square Books, Wednesday, September 3 at 7pm
Marilyn Stasio in The New York Times raved: "Peter May is a writer I'd follow to the ends of the earth." Among the many honors received, The Blackhouse, the first novel in May’s acclaimed Lewis trilogy, won the Barry and Crime Thriller Hound awards.

In The Lewis Man, the second book of the trilogy, Fin Macleod has returned to the Isle of Lewis, the storm-tossed, wind-scoured outer Hebridean island where he was born and raised. Having left behind his adult life in Edinburgh—including his wife and his career in the police force—the former Detective Inspector is intent on repairing past relationships and restoring his parents' derelict cottage. His plans are interrupted when an unidentified corpse is recovered from a Lewis peat bog. The only clue to its identity is a DNA match to a local farmer, the now-senile Tormod Macdonald—the father of Fin's childhood sweetheart, Marsaili—a man who has claimed throughout his life to be an only child, practically an orphan. Reluctantly drawn into the investigation, Fin uncovers deep family secrets even as he draws closer to the killer who wishes to keep them hidden.

Already an international bestseller and winner of numerous awards, including France's Prix des Lecteurs du Télégramme, The Lewis Man has the lyrical verve of Ian Rankin and the gutsy risk-taking of Benjamin Black. As fascinating and forbidding as the Hebridean landscape, the book (according to The Times) "throbs with past and present passions, jealousies, suspicions and regrets; the emotional secrets of the bleak island are even deeper than its peat bog."

Peter May is the multi award-winning author of the internationally best-selling Lewis Trilogy set in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland; the China Thrillers, featuring Beijing detective Li Yan and American forensic pathologist Margaret Campbell; the critically-acclaimed Enzo Files, featuring Scottish forensic scientist Enzo MacLeod, which is set in France; and Entry Island. One of Scotland's most prolific television dramatists, he garnered more than a thousand credits in fifteen years as scriptwriter and script editor on prime-time British television drama. He is the creator of three major television drama series and presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland before quitting television to concentrate on his first love, writing novels.

Liza Ketchum, Out of Left Field
Porter Square Books, Thursday, September 4 at 7pm
The summer of 2004 is full of promise for Brandon McGinnis. He has a job, a spot on the varsity swim team, loving parents, and loyal friends. Brandon and his dad, ardent Red Sox fans, wonder: could this be the year the Sox finally win the World Series? Then Brandon’s father dies suddenly. His will, signed just before his death, reveals a secret kept for thirty years. As shadows of the Vietnam War bleed into the escalating War in Iraq, Brandon sets out to solve the mystery his father left behind. His journey takes him to Canada’s Cape Breton Island, where he uncovers bittersweet truths about the past, and a family facing their own hidden demons. Brandon’s courageous search throws him into life’s game with its devastating losses, unexpected curve balls, and thrills as wondrous as a home run on an autumn night.

Liza Ketchum is the author of many books for young readers, including Where the Great Hawk Flies, winner of the Massachusetts Book Award for Children's Literature, and Newsgirl. She enjoys writing nonfiction and contemporary novels as well as stories about the past. She teaches in the MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Hamline University and divides her time between Massachusetts and Vermont.

Thursday, September 4 at 7pm - Jeff Clements presents "Corporations Are Not People: Reclaiming Democracy from Big Money and Global Corporations "
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, September 4 at 7pm
Join us as we kick off our Fall 2014 Author Events series with Jeff Clements and the updated and expanded Second Edition of "Corporations are not people."

Since the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling that the rights of things - money and corporations - matter more than the rights of people, America has faced a crisis of democracy. In this timely and thoroughly updated second edition, Jeff Clements describes the strange history of this bizarre ruling, its ongoing destructive effects, and the growing movement to reverse it. He includes a new chapter, "Do Something!," showing how - state by state and community by community - Americans are using creative strategies and tools to renew democracy and curb unbalanced corporate power. Since the first edition, 16 states, 160 members of Congress, and 500 cities and towns have called for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United, and the list is growing. This is a fight we can win! Jeff Clements is a cofounder of Free Speech for People, a nonpartisan campaign to reverse Citizens United, work for equal citizenship for all Americans, and reform corporate law. An attorney, Jeff has represented and advocated for people, businesses, and the public interest since 1988.

Richard Flanagan, The Narrow Road to the Deep North
Porter Square Books, Friday, September 5 at 7pm
From the winner of Australia's National Fiction Prize, author of the hugely acclaimed Gould's Book of Fish, a magisterial, Rashomon-like novel of love and war that traces the life of one man from World War II to the present.

In the despair of a Japanese POW camp on the Thai-Burma Death Railway in 1943, Australian surgeon Dorrigo Evans is haunted by his love affair with his uncle's young wife two years earlier. His life is a daily struggle to save the men under his command from starvation, from cholera, from pitiless beatings. Until he receives a letter that will change him forever. Moving deftly from the POW camp to contemporary Australia, from the experiences of Dorrigo and his comrades to those of the Japanese guards, this savagely beautiful novel tells a story of death, love, and family; exploring the many forms of good and evil, war and truth, guilt and transcendence, as one man comes of age, prospers, only to discover all that he has lost.

Richard Flanagan is the author of five previous novels—Death of a River Guide, The Sound of One Hand Clapping, Gould’s Book of Fish, The Unknown Terrorist, and Wanting—which have received numerous honors and have been published in twenty-six countries. He lives in Tasmania.

Milford - LORRIE THOMSON presents her new novel, What's Left Behind.
Toadstool Bookshop - Milford, Saturday, September 6 at 11am
Please join us in welcoming back local author LORRIE THOMSON. She'll be talking about the writing of her new novel What's Left Behind, and later signing copies for you.

When the person you’ve built your whole life around is gone, what do you do? It’s not the first time Abby Stone has faced the question. At eighteen, she envisioned a future with her childhood sweetheart, Charlie, only to have him go off to school and leave a pregnant Abby behind. But that pales beside a second loss, when her eighteen-year-old son, Luke, falls to his death from his third-floor dorm.

Abby throws herself into running her thriving B&B on the coast of Maine. With the help of Rob, a local landscape architect, she plans a backyard labyrinth as a memorial to Luke—a place to find peace and solace. Even as Charlie begins hanging around again, looking for a chance to do right by her, Abby resolves to look forward, not back. And then Luke’s girlfriend arrives on Abby’s doorstep—pregnant, as alone as Abby once was—bringing with her the unexpected gift of a new beginning, one that celebrates the past.

Rich in emotion and insight, this beautifully written novel explores the depth of a mother’s bond, resilience after unimaginable loss, and the way love’s memory can fill the gaps in a shattered heart.

LORRIE makes her home in southern New Hampshire with her husband and children. When she's not writing or hunting for collectibles, the family lets her tag along for camping adventures, paddles, and hikes up 4000 footers. Her website is lorrie-thomson.com.

Middle Grade Mavens: Dana Alison Levy, Jen Malone, Anna Staniszewski, Jennifer Ann Mann
Porter Square Books, Saturday, September 6 at 3pm
Four Massachusetts authors join forces to share their new books for readers between 8 and 12: Dana Alison Levy, The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher Jen Malone, At Your Service Anna Staniszewski, The Prank List Jennifer Ann Mann, Sunny Sweet Is So Dead Meat

Meet the Fletchers. Their year will be filled with new schools, old friends, a grouchy neighbor, hungry skunks, leaking ice rinks, school plays, wet cats, and scary tales told in the dark! There’s Sam, age twelve, who’s mostly interested in soccer, food, and his phone; Jax, age ten, who’s psyched for fourth grade and thinks the new neighbor stinks, and not just because of the skunk; Eli, age ten (but younger than Jax), who’s thrilled to be starting this year at the Pinnacle School, where everyone’s the smart kid; and Frog (not his real name), age six, who wants everyone in kindergarten to save a seat for his invisible cheetah. Also Dad and Papa. The Family Fletcher is fun to know.

Dana Alison Levy was raised by pirates but escaped at a young age and went on to earn a degree in aeronautics and puppetry. Actually, that’s not true—she just likes to make things up. That’s why she always wanted to write books. She was born and raised in New England and studied English literature before going to graduate school for business. While there is value in all learning, had she known she would end up writing for a living, she might not have struggled through all those statistics and finance classes. The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher is her first published novel, but she has a trunk full of other attempts, which vary in degrees of awfulness.

Thirteen-year-old Chloe Turner wants nothing more than to follow in Dad’s footsteps as a respected concierge in a posh NYC hotel. After all, living at a hotel is heaven, and perks like free concert tickets and all-access passes to boutiques, restaurants, and attractions aren’t too shabby either.

When the spoiled brat child of an important guest is only placated by some quick thinking on Chloe’s part, Chloe is awarded the role of Junior Concierge. But she might be in over her head when tasked with tending to the every whim of three royal guests: a twelve-year-old princess who can’t stand Chloe, a cute fourteen-year-old prince(!), and their ten-year-old sister, who has a nasty knack for getting herself lost. After the youngest princess slips Chloe’s care, Chloe and the remaining royals must embark on an event-filled hunt for her through NYC’s best tourist spots.

Jen Malone's debut At Your Service publishes with Simon & Schuster/Aladdin Mix in August 2014 and a new co-written series, RSVP, will follow with book one launching in 2015. Her debut young adult novel Wanderlost will publish with HarperCollins in 2016. Jen lives north of Boston with her husband, her identical twin sons and their little sister, teaches at Boston University, and has a slight obsession with hedgehogs. Please visit her website at www.jenmalonewrites.com. If you spot a hedgehog, click on it to see something extra cool!

Rachel never thought she'd fight for the right to clean toilets, but she has to save her mom's business. Nothing can distract her from her mission - except maybe Whit, the cute new guy in cooking class. Then she discovers something about Whit that could change everything. After destroying her Dirt Diary, Rachel thought she was done with secrets, but to save her family's business, Rachel's going to have to get her hands dirty. Again.

Anna Staniszewski lives and works in the Boston area. She's the author of the My Very UnFairy Tale Life series and the Dirt Diary series–-both published by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky–-as well as the occasional dinosaur/robot picture book. You can visit Anna at www.annastan.com or follow her on Twitter at www.twitter.com/annastanisz.

When a bottle of ketchup explodes all over Masha Sweet, she thinks it’s an accident. She’s trying to be kinder to her little sister, Sunny, so she shouldn’t jump to conclusions…or should she? Turns out Sunny has devised a special science experiment that requires Masha to look totally weird all day. But Masha is not having it. If it kills her (or Sunny!) she will figure out how to get them home from the science fair without causing a scene. But add in a pair of little brothers who take Masha on a wild goose chase through the school, a short detour through a cemetery, and a run-in with a cute boy and this whole day is one big scene. Which just might be what Sunny had in mind...she is so dead meat!

Jennifer Ann Mann lives in Brookline with a houseful of friends and family and writes funny chapter books for kindergarten through 3rd graders. Sunny Sweet is So Not Sweet published in 2013.
