Donal Ryan ~ The Thing About December ~ 57th Street Books
Seminary Co-op Bookstore, Wednesday, October 1 at 6pm
Wednesday, October 1, 6 PM 57th Street Books 1301 E. 57th Street fiftysev@semcoop.com

While the Celtic Tiger rages, and greed becomes the norm, Johnsey Cunliffe desperately tries to hold on to the familiar, even as he loses those who all his life have protected him from a harsh world. Following the deaths first of his father and then his mother, Johnsey inherits the family farm, and a healthy bank account, both of which he proves incapable of managing on his own. Village bullies and scheming land-grabbers stand in his way, no matter where he turns. Though companionship, and the promise of love, enter his life as a result of a hospital stay following a brutal beating, Johnsey remains a lonely man struggling to keep up with a world that moves faster than he does.

Set over the course of one year of Johnsey Cunliffe's life, The Thing About December breathes with Johnsey's bewilderment, humor and agonizing self-doubt. Readers will fall in love with Johnsey in a bittersweet tale that serves as a poignant reminder that we are surrounded in life by simple souls who are nonetheless more insightful and wise than we realize, or can even imagine.

Donal Ryan is from Nenagh in County Tipperary. His first novel, The Spinning Heart, garnered major acclaim and won Book of the Year at the Irish Book Awards and was long-listed for the Man Booker Prize. He lives with his wife Anne Marie and their two children just outside Limerick City. The author lives in Limerick, Ireland.

Elaine Soloway
Women & Children First, Wednesday, October 1 at 7pm
Wednesday, Oct. 1st at 7 p.m. Elaine Soloway Green Nails and Other Acts of Rebellion: Life After Loss Book Launch Early in 2009, after more than a decade of marriage, Elaine Soloway's husband, Tommy, began to change—exhibiting inappropriate behaviors at times, becoming inexplicably weepy at others. Soon, Tommy’s doctors discovered that he had frontotemporal degeneration—a diagnosis that transformed Soloway from irritated wife to unflappable, devoted caregiver in one fell swoop. In this charming and frank memoir, Soloway documents Tommy’s deteriorating health and eventual death, shedding light on the day-to-day realities of caregivers and wry humor. Elaine Soloway is the author of the memoir The Division Street Princess, the novel She's Not The Type, and a contributor to the anthology Ask Me About My Divorce. She also blogs at The Rookie Widow, The Rookie Caregiver, and Too Old To Talk Tech. Before launching her consulting business, she was a press aide to Chicago Mayor Jane Byrne. Soloway is a writing coach, a tech tutor, and a lifelong Chicagoan.

Eula Biss
Women & Children First, Thursday, October 2 at 7:30pm
Thursday, Oct. 2nd at 7:30 p.m. Eula Biss On Immunity: An Inoculation Book Launch In this bold, fascinating book, Eula Biss addresses our fear of the government, the medical establishment, and what may be in our children’s air, food, mattresses, medicines, and vaccines. Reflecting on her own experience as a new mother, she suggests that we cannot immunize our children, or ourselves, against the world. As she explores the metaphors surrounding immunity, Biss extends her conversations with other mothers to meditations on the myth of Achilles, Voltaire’s Candide, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, Susan Sontag’s AIDS and Its Metaphors, and beyond. On Immunity is an inoculation against our fear and a moving account of how we are all interconnected—our bodies and our fates. Eula Biss is the author of Notes from No Man’s Land, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for criticism, and The Balloonists. Her essays have appeared in the Believer and Harper’s. She teaches at Northwestern University and lives in Chicago.

Debut Author Dual Reading: Peyton Marshall & Marcus Burke ~ 57th Street Books ~ Co-sponsored with "The Committee on Creative Writing"
Seminary Co-op Bookstore, Monday, October 6 at 6pm
Monday, October 6th, 6 PM 57th Street Books 1301 E. 57th St. Phone: 773.684.1300 fiftysev@semcoop.com

Join us as Petyon Marshall, author of Goodhouse, and Marcus Burke, author of Team Seven, read from and discuss their debut novels. This event is co-sponsored with The Committee on Creative Writing at the University of Chicago.

About Goodhouse:

At the end of the twenty-first century—in a transformed America—the families of convicted felons are tested for a set of genetic markers. Boys who test positive become compulsory wards of the state—removed from their homes and raised on "Goodhouse" campuses, where they learn to reform their darkest thoughts and impulses. Goodhouse is a feral place—part prison, part boarding school—and now a radical religious group, the Holy Redeemer’s Church of Purity, is intent on destroying each campus and purifying every child with fire. We see all this through the eyes of James, a transfer student who watched as the radicals set fire to his old Goodhouse and everyone he’d ever known.

About Team Seven:

As Andre Battel, a native of Milton, a town south of Boston, ages from age eight through his teenage years, he grows away from his Jamaican family, discovers genuine prowess on the basketball court, and eventually falls into dealing drugs for the local street gang, Team Seven. But when Andre and his crew fall behind on payments, dire and violent consequences await. The story is told primarily through Andre's voice, but we also see the point of view of his mother, Ruby, a hardworking medical secretary; his older sister, Nina; his mostly-not-there and typically drunk-and-high father, Eddy, a halfhearted reggae musician; and Reggie and Smoke, the kingpin of competing drug crews.

What emerges is a rich portrait of a black family, a black community, and one young man poised between youthful innocence and ambiguous experience.
