Nasario Garcia, Hoe, Heaven, and Hell
Bookworks, Saturday, May 23 at 1pm
When Nasario Garcia was a boy in Ojo del Padre, a village in the Rio Puerco Valley northwest of Albuquerque, he grew up the way rural New Mexicans had for generations. His parents built their own adobe house, raised their own food, hauled their water from the river, and brought up their children to respect the old ways. In this account of his boyhood Garcia writes unforgettably about his family's village life, telling story after story, all of them true, and fascinating everyone interested in New Mexico history and culture.

Folklorist and native New Mexican Nasario Garcia has published numerous books about Hispanic folklore and the oral history of northern New Mexico, including Grandma's Santo on Its Head / El santo patas arriba de mi abuelita: Stories of Days Gone By in Hispanic Villages of New Mexico / Cuentos de dias gloriosos en pueblitos hispanos de Nuevo Mexico and Grandpa Lolo's Navajo Saddle Blanket: La tilma de Abuelito Lolo (UNM Press). He currently lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Rachel Preston Prinz, Hacking the Earthship: In Search of an Earth-Shelter that Works for Every Body
Bookworks, Tuesday, May 26 at 7pm
Author Rachel Preston Prinz and contributing authors discuss the history, research, design issues, and evolution of Earthships, drawing on the knowledge of thousands of builders, craftsmen, and designers who have mastered the art of earth sheltering. Then, they walk readers step by step through design, offering a wealth of resources that can inspire, inform, and educate. Within, readers will find the tools needed to understand their place's culture, architecture, and climate... and the ideal building methods for their climate, personality, values, and budget.

THE NEW GENERATION OF EARTHSHIP ENTHUSIASTS:

• Does not want to cart questionable building materials long distances and call it “green”.

• Wants to build locally and naturally... and they want to build it themselves.

• Wants their buildings to be cool in summer, warm in winter, the humidity to be predictable and regular; and they want to minimize pests and allergens.

• Wants to be able to get a permit and insurance, and resell their homes if they want to; or pass them on if they can.

• They want a smaller home that is “just right”... for their budget, time, ability, energy use, and maintenance.

• They want to make their home easy to manage, maintain, and get around in, even if they are in a walker or wheelchair.

• They want their home to feel like it is made from and relating to the earth: in views, in light, in fresh air, in the ability to grow food, and in a beautiful landscape that supports the home.

Rachel Preston Prinz is an architecturally-trained American author, designer, and preservationist working in sustainability and architectural engagement. She graduated with a Master’s of Architecture and Certificate in Historic Preservation from Texas A&M in 1998. After working in traditional architectural firms for more than 10 years, Rachel started Archinia in 2007 so that she could live her dream of promoting the craft of architecture and the Genius Loci, or Spirit of Place, especially pertaining to U.S. Southern, Mountain, and Southwest indigenous, vernacular, and modern design.

Jann Arrington-Wolcott, Deathmark
Bookworks, Sunday, May 31 at 3pm
Santa Fe artist Callahan O'Connor feels her life is finally under control. She's divorced her abusive husband, her adult son is confidently navigating his own career, a wise shaman guides her spiritual journey, and a faithful Great Dane provides protection and companionship. Her paintings of 18th-century Lakota Indians are in demand around the country, though people would never imagine that she's creating her compositions from images that haunt her dreams. And lately those dreams have become more intense, more distressing, even bleeding into her waking life.

Traveling to San Francisco to attend a showing of her latest work, Callahan meets Luke, a mysterious, sexy, and much-younger man who makes her question her own identity and the hidden meaning of her art. In spite of her confusion, Callahan is passionately drawn to Luke. But he has a dangerous secret, and what she doesn't know could kill her.... Jann Arrington-Wolcott is the author of the stunning debut novel Brujo that became the TV movie Seduced by Evil. In this, her second book, she has again crafted a compelling thriller that immerses the reader in Callahan's life and mind as the artist begins struggles separate reality from her dreams.

"Deathmark sizzles with sexual tension, supernatural intrigue, and the glittering world of professional art. Jann Arrington-Wolcott's new thriller takes the reader on a wild ride filled with deception, murder, jealousy, shamanism and fact-based Native American history from the time of the buffalo. I couldn't put it down!"--Anne Hillerman, author of Spider Woman's Daughter

Deborah Harkness, Book of Life, at the Central & Unser Library
Bookworks, Tuesday, June 9 at 7pm
Bookworks in conjunction with ABC Library features Deborah Harkness on paperback tour for her novel, Book of Life! We are celebrating the new Central & Unser library for this event. The new, state of the art library is located just off of I-40 at Central and Unser. Deborah will be reading and signing books in the community room. A place in the signing line requires a purchase from Bookworks, on site or prior to the event. Entry to the event does require a ticket. Tickets are free and can be reserved online HERE or you can pick one up at Bookworks. About Book of Life: After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches--with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency. In the trilogy's final volume, Harkness deepens her themes of power and passion, family and caring, past deeds and their present consequences. In ancestral homes and university laboratories, using ancient knowledge and modern science, from the hills of the Auvergne to the palaces of Venice and beyond, the couple at last learn what the witches discovered so many centuries ago. Deborah Harkness is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night, the first two volumes in the All Souls Trilogy. She lives in Los Angeles. PRAISE "Weaving an extraordinarily rich story of magic and science, history and fiction, passion and power, secrets and truths, Harkness delivers an unforgettable and spellbinding finale that's not to be missed."--USA Today "Pure escapist summer fun."--Jodi Picoult "Harkness has immersed and spellbound readers with her alternative universe. . . . Her ambitious melding of scientific and historical detail is inventive and brings surprising depth. . . . "The Book of Life" brims with sensuality, intrigue, violence and much-welcome humor."--Los Angeles Times "There is no shortage of action in this sprawling sequel, and nearly every chapter brings a wrinkle to the tale. The storytelling is lively and energetic, and Diana remains an appealing heroine even as her life becomes ever more extraordinary. A delightful wrap-up to the trilogy."--Publishers Weekly "Harkness herself proves to be quite the alchemist as she combines elements of magic, history, romance, and science, transforming them into a compelling journey through time, space, and geography. By bridging the gaps between Harry Potter, Twilight, and Outlander fans, Harkness artfully appeals to a broad range of fantasy lovers."--Booklist "The adventure never lets up. . . . History, science, and the unpredictable actions of paranormal characters with hidden agendas all swirl together to create a not-to-be-missed finale to a stellar series."--Library Journal
