A Discussion with Sandra Moran
Giovanni's Room, Thursday, July 31 at 5:30pm
Join us as we host acclaimed author Sandra Moran to discuss the making of her new award-winning book Letters Never Sent.

"The story unfolds like a flower; the impact of it on each person is profound. It’s a spectacular offering of love gained, lost, and struggled with over a lifetime—a poignant tale with a marvelous reveal at the end." —Anna Furtado, Lambda Literary Review

"Letters Never Sent is a crisp, well-written story that is chock full of strong imagery, indelible characters, and conflict that almost any woman can relate to in one way or another. Her transitions between the past and present work seamlessly, and she is able to capture the floodwaters of joy, love, heartbreak, and sorrow with unhurried profundity." -- Salem West, The Rainbow Reader

Letters Never Sent is the winner of the 2013 Rainbow Award for Best Lesbian Historical Fiction and the 2013 Rainbow Award for Best Lesbian Debut Novel. It was also a runner-up for the Best Lesbian Novel. Letters Never Sent is a finalist for the Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction in the 26th Annual Triangle Awards.

Sandra will give a reading from the book and discuss the research that went into the book, including a study of the political atmosphere of the 1930s, '40s, and '50s.

Letters Never Sent is available in paperback for $16.95 here:http://www.queerbooks.com/book/9781939562104

Also available in eBook format for $8.95 here: http://www.queerbooks.com/ebook/9781939562111

Over the course of the week, in five morning sessions, children will: Use professional-grade canvases and acrylic paints to create back-paintings and final pieces. Learn to translate poetry and fiction into artistic works Be introduced to the major schools of painting. Have the opportunity to write original poems and to paint some of their favorite literary characters. Session 1—July 7-11, 9:30 am—12:00 pm Session 2—August 4-9, 9:30 am—12:00 pm Each child will leave class with four original canvases for display.

Next Meeting: Thursday, August 7th @ 6:30pm

Discussing: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Phillip K. Dick Book Description:

THE INSPIRATION FOR Bladerunner. . .

Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? was published in 1968. Grim and foreboding, even today it is a masterpiece ahead of its time.

By 2021, the World War had killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remained coveted any living creature, and for people who couldn't afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacrae: horses, birds, cats, sheep. . . They even built humans.

Emigrées to Mars received androids so sophisticated it was impossible to tell them from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans could wreak, the government banned them from Earth. But when androids didn't want to be identified, they just blended in.

Rick Deckard was an officially sanctioned bounty hunter whose job was to find rogue androids, and to retire them. But cornered, androids tended to fight back, with deadly results.

James Patterson Party

Middle School: Save Rafe

Saturday, August 9th @ 11:00 am The fun begins at 11:00 AM More details to come... James Patterson's hilarious story of perseverance and courage shows everyone's favorite troublemaker, Rafe Khatchadorian, the star of the Middle School series, learning to become a leader at long last. After a rough summer, Rafe is heading back to the dreaded Hills Village Middle School, the site of the very worst years of his life. And as if that's not bad enough, he's learned that he's going to be held back a year unless he can prove himself on an outdoor survival excursion--complete with dangerous white-water rafting, dizzying rock climbing, and fanatical counselors. Rafe and the rest of the pack of "delinquent" trainees are forced to cooperate as they prepare for the final test: a solo excursion in the deep woods. Can Rafe come out of the experience in one piece? And if he does, he go home as the same insecure kid? All our in-store events are free and open to the public.
