William White, The Apparition and Other Stories
Bookworks, Saturday, January 3, 2015 at 3pm
This is the eighth book by William White and like the rest of his books, it is an excellent read-one you will have trouble putting down. For those who love ghost stories this book contains an excellent account of a newly deceased young man and his desperate attempts to communicate with his family members. It happened less than two years before the publication of this book. It is truly an amazing story and one that will give you an insight into the other side. This book also contains some amazing stories of life and death struggles in remote places as well as stranded travelers finding the means to reach their homes when marooned without any resources for continuing their journey. For those of you who love short stories, this book is for you; however, the author saved the best story for last. It is a story about a young man in the early sixties of the twentieth century who was a bare-knuckle fighter. He fought at cock-fights around the country as an added feature by the promoters of the cock-fighting venues. He took on all comers regardless of their weight or height advantages and remained undefeated. He weighed no more than one hundred and sixty pounds during this time period.

Adam James Jones, The Vendetta of Felipe Espinosa
Bookworks, Sunday, January 4, 2015 at 3pm
The year was 1863. As the Civil War raged and goldfields beckoned, a gunman stalked the territories on a mission to kill American settlers. He would elude governors and armies, bounty hunters and posses, until his demise at the climax of a fierce high-country manhunt. By then, Felipe Espinosa had claimed more than thirty lives to quietly become one of the nation's first serial killers and foreign terrorists.

A sweeping historical epic, The Vendetta of Felipe Espinosa is a saga of Confederate guerrillas, marauding Indians, a severe religious order, vigilante miners, and one migrant family looking for peace in a violent country.

Paul Grabhorn, Seeking Light
Bookworks, Tuesday, January 6, 2015 at 7pm
A profoundly moving collection of unforgettable photographs from conflict zones around the world.

Paul Grabhorn's stunning four-color photographs tell an amazing, essential story--one of hope in the face of violence and deplorable conditions, of dignity in the midst of degradation, of light in the darkness of war and suffering. Taken on his travels with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Grabhorn's captivating images allow readers to witness the activities that occur every day in places that the rest of the world has forgotten or has chosen to ignore. In war-torn countries such as Chechnya, Bosnia, Croatia, and Somalia, the humanitarian work Grabhorn documents is a testament to human compassion and community. Here are the helpers, quietly working day to day to alleviate the suffering of those caught up in conflict wherever it erupts. In many parts of the world, hope may sometimes seem in short supply. Grabhorn's photographs are an inspiring reminder of the resiliency and the unlimited capacity of the human spirit.

Paula Amar Schwartz, Unfolding Universe
Bookworks, Wednesday, January 7, 2015 at 7pm
Unfolding Universe is a celebration of life unfolding into time and space. There are landscapes of the mind, alongside snapshots of intimate everyday dimensions: mountain vistas, seascapes, local and exotic scenes, and meditations. I offer it to you to share some insights from a life well lived: a birdsong call heard in early dawn or darkest night and the fluted sounds of mindful observation of a world of beauty, passion, and yes, the irony of tears and pain. Our world is not a perfect place; yet viewed with wit and dashes of charm, it opens new ways to see an expanding universe: acrid, sweet, and salty, zesty, crunchy, soft textured and hard - seasoned by time, basted by ever expanding space.

Paula Amar Schwartz, Ph.D., is a retired psychologist living in Albuquerque, NM. She taught at Jefferson Medical College and developed a clinical practice in Ambler, PA. She and her husband, Melvin J. Schwartz, travel extensively, primarily enjoying adventure travel to remote places in the world. They both ski and enjoy a vigorous outdoor life. They also enjoy spending time with their children and grandchildren. Paula is a lifelong meditator who teaches and has conducted research in meditation. She views meditation as the path that opened her voice as a poet, and is a participant and leader in several meditation groups. Her poetry has been published nationally and internationally.

Lynne Hinton, Sister Eve, Private Eye
Bookworks, Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 3pm
Sister Eve knows God moves in mysterious ways. And Eve adores a good mystery. Especially a murder.

Two decades into her calling at a New Mexico monastery, Sister Evangeline Divine breaks her daily routine when a police officer appears, carrying a message from her father. Sister Eve is no stranger to the law, having grown up with a police captain turned private detective. She's seen her fair share of crime--and knows a thing or two about solving mysteries.

But when Captain Jackson Divine needs her to return home and help him recover from surgery, Sister Eve finds herself taking on his latest case.

A Hollywood director has disappeared, and the sultry starlet he's been running around with isn't talking. When the missing man turns up dead, Captain Divine's case escalates into a full-blown murder case, and Sister Eve's crime-solving instincts kick in with an almost God-given grace.

Soon Sister Eve finds herself soul-searching every step of the way: How can she choose between the vocation in her heart and the job in her blood?

Lynne Hinton is the New York Times best-selling author of Friendship Cake and Pie Town. She received an undergraduate degree from UNC Greensboro and a Masters of Divinity from Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley. She has served as a hospice chaplain and church pastor. Lynne is a regular columnist with The Charlotte Observer. She lives with her husband in Albuquerque, NM. Visit her website at www.lynnehinton.com Facebook: Lynne-Hinton-Books

Vamos a Leer Book Club
Bookworks, Monday, January 12, 2015 at 5pm
The Vamos a Leer book group began in February 2012. Every month, educators, teachers, librarians, and community members from all over Albuquerque come together at our wonderful local bookstore.

The book group is held on the first Monday of each month (with a few exceptions due to holidays) during the academic year. We meet at Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande Blvd NW Albuquerque, NM 87107 | 505.344.8139) from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. If you can’t find us at Bookworks, it’s because we’ve wandered right next door to the Flying Star to indulge in coffee and pastries.

Feel free to drop in for any of our meetings! No need to have read the entire book or even a chapter…we welcome conversation about a single page, the book’s theme or setting, your classroom endeavors, and whatever other related musings you care to share.

January's selection is Caminar by Skila Brown.

Sofia grows up in the close-knit community of the barrio in McAllen, Texas, then finds that her experiences as a scholarship student at an Episcopal boarding school in Austin only strengthen her ties to family and her "comrades."

Maggie Hall, The Conspiracy of Us
Bookworks, Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 7pm
A fast-paced international escapade, laced with adrenaline, glamour, and romance--perfect for fans of Ally Carter.

Avery West's newfound family can shut down Prada when they want to shop in peace, and can just as easily order a bombing when they want to start a war. Part of a powerful and dangerous secret society called the Circle, they believe Avery is the key to an ancient prophecy. Some want to use her as a pawn. Some want her dead.

To unravel the mystery putting her life in danger, Avery must follow a trail of clues from the monuments of Paris to the back alleys of Istanbul with two boys who work for the Circle--beautiful, volatile Stellan and mysterious, magnetic Jack. But as the clues expose a stunning conspiracy that might plunge the world into World War 3, she discovers that both boys are hiding secrets of their own. Now she will have to choose not only between freedom and family--but between the boy who might help her save the world, and the one she's falling in love with.

Maggie Hall indulges her obsession with distant lands and far-flung adventures as often as she can. She has played with baby tigers in Thailand, learned to make homemade pasta in Italy, and taken thousands of miles of trains through the vibrant countryside of India. In her past life, she was a bookstore events coordinator and marketing manager, and when she's not on the other side of the world, she lives with her husband and their cats in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she watches USC football, dabbles in graphic design, and blogs about young adult literature for YA Misfits.

WC Bauers, Unbreakable
Bookworks, Friday, January 16, 2015 at 7pm
The colonists of the planet Montana are accustomed to being ignored. Situated in the buffer zone between two rival human empires, their world is a backwater: remote, provincial, independently minded. Even as a provisional member of the Republic of Aligned Worlds, Montana merits little consideration--until it becomes the flashpoint in an impending interstellar war.

When pirate raids threaten to destabilize the region, the RAW deploys its mechanized armored infantry to deal with the situation. Leading the assault is Marine Corps Lieutenant and Montanan expatriate Promise Paen of Victor Company. Years earlier, Promise was driven to join the Marines after her father was killed by such a raid. Payback is sweet, but it comes at a tremendous and devastating cost. And Promise is in no way happy to be back on her birthworld, not even when she is hailed as a hero by the planet's populace, including its colorful president. Making matters even worse: Promise is persistently haunted by the voice of her dead mother. Meanwhile, the RAW's most bitter rival, the Lusitanian Empire, has been watching events unfold in the Montana system with interest. Their forces have been awaiting the right moment to gain a beachhead in Republic territory, and with Promise's Marines decimated, they believe the time to strike is now.

Unbreakable by W.C. Bauers is character driven, military science in the tradition of John Scalzi's "Old Man's War."

W. C. Bauers has worked on the sales side of publishing for more than thirteen years. Unbreakable is his first novel. His interests include Taekwondo, reading and writing military science fiction, toting gear for his Alpha Unit, and French press brewing. He lives in the Rocky Mountains with his wife and three boys.

Susan Nunn, Song of the Earth
Bookworks, Saturday, January 17, 2015 at 3pm
Place is as elusive as the dawn. It doesn't have an edge, but lifts gradually and infuses us with light. We can see a town or a landscape, but until we open ourselves to its light--letting its rays seep down into our consciousness--we don't really see it, nor do we know it. When I first arrived on the border in the late 1990s, I was too eager to jump to conclusions, and as the poverty of Agua Prieta sidled up against our fence, I sat down to write: Poverty gnaws like a rat at Mexico's very foundation. Cardboard shacks, dirt floors, no running water, wood-burning stoves backed up to paper walls just waiting to ignite. Outside toilets, windows made of plastic, sealing the little hovels off like tombs. A bonfire burning in the streets . . . men dragging broken pieces of furniture . . . children in wet diapers and no shirts, running to the warmth. People begging. A woman, with a child tugging at her breast. Her well is dry . . . child sucking up emptiness . . . a ragged paper cup, a pitiful extension of her soul...old men clinging to the image, hoping for a glance of the soft brown nipple . . . pulling them into mother's breast...that mother who reassures against hunger and torment. Clinging to a dream--blisters, snakes and mountain lions, just trudging and carrying those less fortunate, just walking--just running into tomorrow . . . I don't need to go on. I, like so many writers, assumed what I saw was all there was, and I was wrong. This rugged landscape, known as the 'borderlands, ' teems with diversity. On both sides of the border, I had missed the rich texture of place and its culture. I'm not sure when the knowing started nudging at my senses. Had I fallen off 'the shelf of indifference' or was I dragged? Whatever happened, as I opened up and let this land and its people absorb me, I was able to see and the story was born. I hope you enjoy it.

Susan Nunn holds an MFA, with a dual concentration in Fiction and Creative Non-fiction, from Antioch University Los Angeles. She also is a Certified Creative Writing Instructor. She has had several pieces published through the years, most recently in Pilgrimage, a literary magazine, and in High Country News. With the publication of this novel, she is now devoting her time to a memoir, Trudging Through Chaos: A Spiritual Journey Within, and also a new novel. Susan's dedication to and tireless advocacy for human rights was sparked by her twelve years as an innkeeper on the U.S.-Mexican border. She has spent a lifetime studying 'place.' She lives in Joplin, Missouri with her father. Her black Labrador, Harry, is always at her side.
