Martha McManamy, The Big Trip
Porter Square Books, Tuesday, July 7 at 7pm
Taking a year off from the rat race is an idle dream for many, but the McManamy family, including their three teenagers, decided to make it happen. The Big Trip: A Family Gap Year tells how they put high school, college and work on hold while they learned Spanish in Spain and volunteered in Bolivia, Guatemala, and Kenya. Choosing home stays and local transportation over hotels and rental cars, they undertook a deeply immersive journey of "slow travel," living simply and experiencing life as the locals do. The teenagers contributed their own creative poems and stories to The Big Trip. A vivid account full of adventures and lively observations, the story also offers a template for anyone yearning to undertake an intellectual, emotional and spiritual journey of discovery. It is possible for families to take a Big Trip and enrich their lives without breaking the bank, losing a job, or falling behind in school. This compelling travel memoir motivates us all to follow even the wildest of our dreams.

Martha McManamy is a multi-lingual Quaker activist with a serious travel bug and a desire to make a difference in this troubled world. She planned and carried out the Big Trip, bringing to life a long-held dream. Martha lives with her husband and children in Newburyport, Massachusetts.

August Cole, Ghost Fleet
Porter Square Books, Wednesday, July 8 at 7pm
What will the next global conflict look like? Find out in this ripping, near-futuristic thriller.

The United States, China, and Russia eye each other across a twenty-first century version of the Cold War, which suddenly heats up at sea, on land, in the air, in outer space, and in cyberspace. The fighting involves everything from stealthy robotic-drone strikes to old warships from the navy's "Ghost Fleet." Fighter pilots unleash a Pearl Harbor-style attack; American veterans become low-tech insurgents; teenage hackers battle in digital playgrounds; Silicon Valley billionaires mobilize for cyber-war; and a serial killer carries out her own vendetta.

Ultimately, victory will depend on blending the lessons of the past with the weapons of the future. Ghost Fleet is a page-turning speculative thriller in the spirit of The Hunt for Red October. The debut novel by two leading experts on the cutting edge of national security, it is unique in that every trend and technology featured in the novel -- no matter how sci-fi it may seem -- is real, or could be soon.

August Cole is a writer, analyst and consultant specializing in national security issues.

Gabriel Squailia, Dead Boys
Porter Square Books, Thursday, July 9 at 7pm
In the decade since his untimely death, Jacob Campbell has carved out his niche as Dead City's most successful preservationist, keeping his fellow corpses looking lifelike for as long as the unstoppable entropy of the afterlife will allow. But there's little to do in the Land of the Dead except drink, thieve, and gamble eternity away, and the monotony of such an existence will drive Jacob to abandon his home for a chance to find the Living Man.

According to legend, the Living Man was the only person to cross into the underworld without dying first. It's rumored that he met his end somewhere in the labyrinth of pubs beneath Dead City's streets, disappearing without a trace. Now Jacob's vow to find the Living Man, and trace his path back to the world of the living, will send him on a perilous journey through an underworld where the only certainty is decay.

Accompanying him are the boy Remington, an innocent with mysterious powers over the bones of the dead, and the hanged man Leopold l'Eclair, a flamboyant rogue whose criminal ambitions spark the undesired attention of the shadowy ruler known as the Magnate.

An ambitious debut that mingles the fantastic with the philosophical, Dead Boys twists the well-worn epic quest into a compelling, one-of-a-kind work of weird fiction that transcends genre, recalling the novels of contemporary authors China Mieville and Neil Gaiman.

Gabriel Squailia is a professional DJ from Rochester, New York. An alumnus of the Friends World Program, a college emphasizing experiential education and social change, he studied storytelling and literature in India, Europe, and the Middle East. He settled in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, where he’s also known as DJ BFG, spinning for dance floors around the county, including Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival. Dead Boys is his first novel.

Laura Pritchett, Red Lightning
Porter Square Books, Monday, July 13 at 7pm
Ten years ago, Tess Cross left her newborn daughter with her sister and hightailed it out of what she called NoWhere, Colorado. Now she returns to the eastern plains of Colorado, full of raw rage at herself and at the universe, yearning for the life she never lead and the daughter she left behind. As a levantona who has been running drugs and illegal immigrants once they're beyond the US-Mexico border, she's knowingly and even defiantly entered into a harsh and dangerous world. But suddenly her world has become darker than she can bear: The largest wildfire in Colorado history is blazing. Immigrants are dead. She's haunted by the memory of a Mexican woman she couldn't save and a lost Mexican girl she did. Traffickers -- of both immigrants and drugs -- are now hunting her down. But most of all, Tess is at the mercy of her own traumatized soul, and the weight of it is cracking her apart.

In the act of coming home, Tess must now face her dying mother, her sister, and her daughter, and most importantly, herself.

Laura Pritchett is the author of Hell’s Bottom, Colorado, which received the Milkweed National Fiction Prize and a PEN USA Award for Fiction. For Sky Bridge, she received the WILLA Fiction Award and was a Finalist for the Colorado Book Award. Her work has appeared in numerous magazines including The Sun, Orion, High Country News, Salon, Desert Journal and others. Pritchett lives with her family in the foothills of northern Colorado.
