Leah Eskin, "Slices of Life"
The Book Cellar, Thursday, April 24 at 7pm
Leah Eskin visits the Book Cellar to share her new book, Slices of Life: A Food Writer Cooks through Many a Conundrum. Food tasting included!

Bad Haircut Kale Chips. Post-ER Roast Chicken. New Baby Risotto. Frantic Dinner-Party Calming Soup. These are some of the dishes that food writer Leah Eskin has turned out during her years of raising two children, enduring one dog, and tending her marriage. She's also nurtured her ten-year-old food column, "Home on the Range," providing a recipe and accompanying vignette in the "Chicago Tribune " every week. "Slices of Life " transforms those columns into a memoir that readers can savor in small or large bites. It's a compilation of more than 200 recipes, with a generous helping of the life stories that happened along the way: moving-day potatoes, summer-vacation apricot pie, dead-microwave ratatouille, sullen-child oatmeal squares. Whether preparing recipes for disaster or delight, Leah Eskin has made it all delicious!

Local Writers ~ Joseph G. Peterson, Bill Hillmann, Ben Tanzer & Alexai Galaviz-Budziszewski ~ Seminary Co-op Bookstore
Seminary Co-op Bookstore, Friday, April 25 at 5:30pm
FRIDAY, APRIL 25, 5:30 PM SEMINARY CO-OP BOOKSTORE 5751 S. WOODLAWN AVENUE PHONE: 773.752.4381

In coordination with Switchgrass Books, Curbside Splendor Publishing, and McSweeney's Books, the Seminary Co-op Bookstore presents four local authors with their latest releases. Please come to the bookstore to listen and support the talent Chicago has to offer us.

The novels of Joseph G. Peterson have run a literary gauntlet from searing prose to lyrical poetry; from noir style to full character-driven plots, and his work has drawn comparisons to Gertrude Stein and Ernest Hemingway. An incredible eye for detail and taut, lean prose are what readers have come to expect from a Peterson effort, and in this new book they will not be disappointed.

The Old Neighborhood" is the story of teenager Joe Walsh, the youngest in a large, mixed-race family living in Chicago. After Joe witnesses his older brother commit a gangland murder, his friends and family drag him down into a pit of violence that reaches a bloody impasse when his elder sister begins dating a rival gang member.

The essays in "Lost in Space" are focused on an array of child-rearing topics including sleep, discipline, first haircuts, deceased parents/grandparents and illness, and the inherent challenges and humor that coincide with, and are intrinsically tied-into, these stages of life. The essays also recognize the ongoing presence of the author's dead father in his life even as he seeks to parent without his father's guidance or advice.

To those outside it, Pilsen is a vast barrio on the south side of Chicago. To Alexai Galaviz-Budziszewski, it is a world of violence and decay and beauty, of nuance and pure chance. It is a place where the smell of cooking frijoles is washed away by that of dead fish in the river, where vendettas are a daily routine, and where a fourteen-year-old immigrant might hold the ability bring people back from the dead.

Michael Boatman (Last God Standing) with Bartholomew Daniels (Rotten at the Heart)
The Book Cellar, Friday, April 25 at 7pm
Michael Boatman and Bartholomew Daniels visit The Book Cellar to share their books, Last God Standing and Rotten at the Heart.

Michael Boatman's Last God Standing: When God decides to quit and join the human race to see what all the fuss is about, all Hell breaks loose. Sensing his abdication, the other defunct gods of Earth's vanquished pantheons want a piece of the action He abandoned. Meanwhile, the newly-humanised deity must discover the whereabouts and intentions of the similarly reincarnated Lucifer, and block the ascension of a murderous new God. How is he ever going to make it as a stand-up comedian with all of this going on…?

Bartholomew Daniels's Rotten at the Heart: With their patron's mysterious death and their Puritan landlord's sudden determination to evict them, William Shakespeare and the Lord Chamberlain's Men teeter on the brink of ruin. So when the new Baron Carey--son of their late sponsor--reveals to Shakespeare his suspicions that his father was murdered, and demands that Shakespeare use his own powers of observation to ferret out the killer in exchange for Carey's continued patronage, Will has little choice but to agree.

Elizabeth Heineman
Women & Children First, Friday, April 25 at 7:30pm
Ghostbelly is Elizabeth Heineman’s personal account of a home birth that goes tragically wrong-ending in a stillbirth-and the harrowing process of grief and questioning that follows. Before the burial, Heineman brings the baby home for overnight stays. Does this sound unsettling? Of course--we’re not supposed to hold and caress dead bodies. But then again, babies aren’t supposed to die. In this courageous and deeply intimate memoir, Heineman examines the home-birth and maternal healthcare industry, the isolation of midwives, and the scripting of her own grief. With no resolution to sadness, Heineman and her partner learn to live in a new world, a world in which they face each day with the understanding of the fragility of the present. Elizabeth Heineman is a professor of history and of gender, women's, and sexuality studies at the University of Iowa. Her published works include Before Porn was Legal, Sexual Violence in Conflict Zones, and What Difference Does a Husband Make? She lives in Iowa City.

Seminary Co-op Bookstore, Saturday, April 26 at 3pm
SATURDAY, APRIL 26, 3 PM SEMINARY CO-OP BOOKSTORE 5751 S. WOODLAWN AVENUE PHONE: 773.752.4381

Imagine: Living in a Socialist U.S.A., edited by Francis Goldin, Debby Smith, and Michael Steven Smith, is at once an indictment of American capitalism as the root cause of our spreading dystopia and a cri de coeur for what life could be like in the United States if we had economic as well as a real political democracy.

Michael Steven Smith is an author and a New York City attorney with the firm Michael Steven Smith and Associates. His firm has for twenty years successfully represented victims in suits against insurance companies in cases of medical malpractice and other accidents.

Ariel Gore
Women & Children First, Saturday, April 26 at 6pm
The End of Eve

At age 39, Ariel Gore has everything she’s always wanted: a successful writing career, two children and a long-term partnership, and a beautiful (if tiny) home. Ariel doesn’t want to take care of her crazy dying mother, but she agrees to anyway, thinking it’s the right thing to do (and it can’t go on forever, can it???). Ariel’s partner, Sol, agrees to come along, too, but with certain conditions—namely that they all move into a bigger house, one that happens to be a thousand miles away. Amidst the chaos of moving, plus clowns and hospice workers, pie and too much whiskey, Ariel’s 10-year relationship with Sol begins to unravel, forcing her to reconsider the meaning of family and everything she’s ever been taught to call “love.” Ariel Gore is a journalist, novelist, nonfiction author, and teacher. She is the founding editor/publisher of Hip Mama, an Alternative Press Award–winning publication covering the culture and politics of motherhood.

Violet S. Law discusses Voices from Tibet: Selected Essays and Reportage ~ Seminary Co-op Bookstore
Seminary Co-op Bookstore, Sunday, April 27 at 12:30pm
Sunday, April 27th, 12:30 PM Seminary Co-op Bookstore 5751 S. Woodlawn Avenue Phone: 773.752.4381

Join Violet S. Law, translator and editor of Voices from Tibet: Selected Essays and Reportage, who will discuss Woeser's and Wang's writings and the situation in Tibet.

Peter Carroll of The Department of History at Northwestern University will moderate the discussion. Peter J. Carroll (PhD Yale, 1998) specializes in the social and cultural history of 19th and 20th century China.

Tsering Woeser and Wang Lixiong are widely regarded as the most lucid, insightful writers on contemporary Tibet. Their reportage on the economic exploitation, environmental degradation, cultural destruction and political subjugation that plague the increasingly Han Chinese-dominated Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) is as powerful as it is profound, ardent and analytical in equal measure, and not in the least bit ideological.

Voices from Tibet assembles essays and reportage in translation that capture many facets of the upheavals wrought by a rising China upon a sacred land and its pious people. With the TAR in a virtual lockdown after the 2008 unrest, this book sheds important light on the simmering frustrations that touched off the unrest and Beijing's relentless control tactics in its wake. The authors also interrogate long-standing assumptions about the Tibetans' political future.
