Lucy Lippard, Undermining: A Wild Ride in Words and Images Through Land Use Politics in the Changing West
Bookworks, Thursday, July 10 at 6pm
Award-winning author, curator, and activist Lucy R. Lippard is one of America's most influential writers on contemporary art, a pioneer in the fields of cultural geography, conceptualism, and feminist art. Hailed for "the breadth of her reading and the comprehensiveness with which she considers the things that define place" (The New York Times), Lippard now turns her keen eye to the politics of land use and art in an evolving New West. Working from her own lived experience in a New Mexico village and inspired by gravel pits in the landscape, Lippard weaves a number of fascinating themes--among them fracking, mining, land art, adobe buildings, ruins, Indian land rights, the Old West, tourism, photography, and water--into a tapestry that illuminates the relationship between culture and the land. From threatened Native American sacred sites to the history of uranium mining, she offers a skeptical examination of the "subterranean economy." Featuring more than two hundred gorgeous color images, Undermining is a must-read for anyone eager to explore a new way of understanding the relationship between art and place in a rapidly shifting society.

Lucy R. Lippard is an internationally known writer, activist, and curator. She has authored twenty-two books, has curated more than fifty major exhibitions, and holds nine honorary degrees. Lippard is the recipient of numerous awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and two National Endowment for the Arts grants. She lives in New Mexico.

Jenny Ruden, Camp Utopia and the Forgiveness Diet, at the Jewish Community Center pool
Bookworks, Saturday, July 12 at 4pm
Sixteen-year-old Baltimore teen Bethany Stern knows the only way out of spending her summer at Camp Utopia, a fat camp in Northern California, is weight-loss. Desperate, she tries The Forgiveness Diet, the latest fad whose infomercial promises that all she has to do is forgive her deadbeat dad, her scandalous sister, and the teenage magician next door and (unrequited) love of her life. But when the diet fails and her camp nemesis delivers the ultimate blow, Bee bids sayonara to Camp-not-Utopian-at-all to begin what she believes will be her "real" summer adventure, only to learn that running away isn't as easy--or as healing--as it seems.

Her wry and honest voice bring humor and poignancy for anyone, fat or thin, tired of hearing "you'd be so pretty if...insert unwelcome judgment about your appearance from loved one or perfect stranger."

The party will be poolside, with free swimming. Jenny will also be serving cake and ice cream. More info: kids@bkwrks.com.

Pamela Windo, Him through me: Making love and music in the Sixties & Seventies
Bookworks, Saturday, July 12 at 5pm
In the fall of 1969, two months after the Woodstock festival, a young man leaves America and returns home to England. He knocks at the door of a girl he’d known in school. Gary has paid his dues as a saxophone player in New York City’s jazz clubs and sets his sights on rousing the British music scene. Pam has traveled in Europe and North Africa, has two young sons, and has just left her marriage in suburbia. Gary lives life in a major key and as his own career soars, he encourages Pam to play piano, and brings her to perform and record alongside him, in the company of musicians that included Nick Mason (Pink Floyd), Robert Wyatt (Soft Machine), and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones. The book boldly evokes the energy and innocence of that ground-breaking and freedom-loving era of “making love not war,” in which music played the major role.

Pamela Windo was born in Brighton. She left school at 16 to travel, first to Paris and Berlin, then on to North Africa where she lived with a young Tunisian and his family, and worked as radio operator on a dam-building site. Back in England, after a first marriage and divorce, and with two young boys in tow, she married childhood friend Gary Windo, a gifted saxophone player, and soon found herself alongside musicians like Nick Mason, with whom she recorded and played her first gig on keyboards, and with Robert Wyatt of Soft Machine.

When the couple immigrated to Woodstock in upstate New York, Pam joined The Gary Windo Quartet along with bass player Steve Swallow, and then started her own band, Pam Windo & the Shades, gaining the attention of Albert Grossman who signed her to his Bearsville label. When the music business got too heavy, Pam began to write and escaped to Morocco where she lived and traveled for the next seven years, turning her hand to English tutor and to location assistant for Martin Scorsese’s movie, “Kundun,” shot entirely in Morocco.

In 2004, a retrospective CD of Gary and Pam’s music was released, and chosen by the BBC as Jazz Album of the Week. In April 2014, the paperback memoir, “Him through Me – Making love and music in the Sixties & Seventies,” was released. Windo lives and writes in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Sharleen Daugherty, Double Doll: Turning Myself Upside Down
Bookworks, Sunday, July 13 at 3pm
"A breathtaking tale of risk, vision, and wisdom, Sharleen Daugherty's Double Doll leads us from the pressure cooker of Wall Street to the big skies of the Navajo Nation. Like the Navajo weavings the book celebrates, Daugherty intertwines issues of race, class, and gender against a backdrop of heartbreaking beauty."--Robert Wilder, author of Daddy Needs a Drink

"My relationship with Ms. Daugherty has gone on for over one hundred years. From writer's coach to deep friend, we have traveled together ... Her cross-culture journey, and her insistence on finding the core of that adventure, are recorded in this trilogy. Hers is the Beauty Way of a strong woman willing to dare."--Michael Thunder, writer's coach

"Writing a memoir requires the ability to face the truth and to share it with a strong voice that tells the story with heart and dignity. Sharleen Daugherty has done this and more in the first book of her memoir trilogy, Double Doll. Her story brings both the beauty of the Southwest and the complexity of its people to life. Wonderfully written, this book should not be missed!"--Marcia Rosen, author of My Memoir Workbook

Celeste Yacoboni, How Do You Pray
Bookworks, Wednesday, July 16 at 7pm
As we evolve, so do our prayers; as our prayers evolve, so do we. This is the evolution of illumination, the collective voice of the soul of the world.

How Do You Pray? was born from a vision in which Celeste Yacoboni was told to ask the world, "How Do You Pray?" She reached out to leading spiritual, shamanic, scientific teachers, guides, and activists and asked for their response. Culled from those responses is an original and deeply personal collection of essays. Talking intimately and candidly about how they pray, these personalities encourage the reader to contemplate the intention of prayer in their own life.

This collection speaks to the reader's heart and asks "What is your soul's expression? How do you dance in ecstasy, bare your soul to the divine? Bow in gratitude? Merge with nature? Cry out for guidance? How Do You Pray?"

This groundbreaking and moving book gathers responses from leaders of diverse spiritual and religious traditions ranging from Buddhism to Islam to Christianity, as well as those who do not claim one or any particular walk of faith. Contributors include Brother David Steindl-Rast, Matthew Fox, James O'Dea, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Tessa Bielecki, Lama Surya Das, Hank Wesselman, Father Bede Griffiths, Byron Katie, Joan Halifax, Normandi Ellis, Andrew Harvey, Dan Millman, Kristena Prater, Nicki Scully, Mirabai Starr, and more.

This book is a beautiful gift package with matte laminate cover and red ribbon.

Celeste Yacoboni is a Minister of Walking Prayer, ordained by the Center for Sacred Studies in Sonora, California. Her work focuses on guiding and supporting people through transitions by creating a space of awareness, presence and inspiration which integrates body, mind, spirit and emotions. She maintains a thriving private practice in Santa Fe, NM in which she facilitates healing and wholeness through Massage Therapy, Chi Nei Tsang, Qigong, Women's Breast Health, Plant Essences, the Hawaiian practice of Ho'oponopono, and the inquiry How Do You Pray? Celeste leads How Do You Pray? workshops in which people share and experience different ways of prayer and connecting to Source. On her Ho'oponopono CD, Celeste sings a Hawaiian healing practice which creates a space of love, compassion, forgiveness and gratitude. Celeste lives in New Mexico.

Wendy Foxworth, Co-Creating Good, Healthy Relationships
Bookworks, Thursday, July 17 at 7pm
Co-creating Good, Healthy Relationships: Living Life The WeWay With Everyone, Every Day shows us that choosing to make a shift in how we interact in our relationships can help solve the critical challenges facing humanity today. Practical steps and templates are provided to show us how to collectively transform from competitive relationships (MeWay) to collaborative relationships (WeWay) where partners experience increased levels of care, understanding, connectivity, and respect. When we make the shift to the WeWay, we learn what it means to truly love (our neighbor, our partner, our family, yes, even our boss). A unique how-to, this innovative book helps people form value-based agreements, which increase connection and trust in any relationship. Showing readers how to honor the core values of their agreement, the tools presented help ensure meaningful growth in personal and professional relationships for the long haul by drastically reducing the amount of destructive conflict and negative drama. When we agree together what the relationship path looks like for us before we begin, it makes it so much easier to remain on the path and to "walk our talk.." When we agree together on the script in advance, it makes the dialogue and interactions between the actors easier. Doing relationships the WeWay also saves thousands of dollars spent in later years on therapy and relationship-repair seminars to deal with MeWay power struggles. A seminal text on relationships, Co-creating Good, Healthy Relationships guides readers to a better understanding of the theory and practice inherent to relating in the WeWay. Readers around the world will see the value of improving all their relationships by embracing the WeWay. Coaxed by her own personal experience of total relational devastation, author Wendy Foxworth wrote Co-creating Good, Healthy Relationships and developed the WeWay Relational Development System, after her life as a "MeWay" Christian minister nearly cost her everything. Losing her spouse, home, job, friends, family, and reputation, Wendy found new life and purpose as a spiritual teacher and relationship coach by embracing her journey and living now, the WeWay.

Wendy J. Foxworth has spent twenty-five years as a spiritual teacher and a relationship coach studying the evolution of human behavior. She has worked as a public school teacher, executive director of nonprofit organizations, minister of a large church, business manager, organizational development consultant, and the owner of a relationship coaching business. After a painful experience as a Christian minister in a growing three hundred-member church, learning that the MeWay traditional command, control, and blaming relationship model doesn't foster long-term, peaceful, and productive relationships, Foxworth discovered the WeWay methodology. Since graduating with her Master's in Managerial Leadership from John F. Kennedy University, Foxworth has shared the WeWay with people from all walks of life. She currently works as owner of Foxworth Coaching and Consulting Services and as the director of the Center for Consciousness Education in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Malcolm Ebright presents Four Square Leagues
Bookworks, Saturday, July 19 at 3pm
This long-awaited book is the most detailed and up-to-date account of the complex history of Pueblo Indian land in New Mexico, beginning in the late seventeenth century and continuing to the present day by our state's best-versed researcher on land grants, Malcolm Ebright.

This long-awaited book is the most detailed and up-to-date account of the complex history of Pueblo Indian land in New Mexico, beginning in the late seventeenth century and continuing to the present day. The authors have scoured documents and legal decisions to trace the rise of the mysterious Pueblo League between 1700 and 1821 as the basis of Pueblo land under Spanish rule. They have also provided a detailed analysis of Pueblo lands after 1821 to determine how the Pueblos and their non-Indian neighbors reacted to the change from Spanish to Mexican and then to U.S. sovereignty.

Characterized by success stories of protection of Pueblo land as well as by centuries of encroachment by non-American Indians on Pueblo lands and resources, this is a uniquely New Mexican history that also reflects issues of indigenous land tenure that vex contested territories all over the world.

Malcolm Ebright is a historian, an attorney, and the director of the Center for Land Grant Studies. His most recent book, written in collaboration with Rick Hendricks and Richard W. Hughes, is Four Square Leagues: Pueblo Indian Land in New Mexico (UNM Press).

Rick Hendricks is an historical consultant to the Rio Grande Historical Collections at New Mexico State University. He is also the author of The Navajos in 1705: Roque Madrid's Campaign Journal and was an editor of the six-volume Vargas Project (both UNM Press).

Richard W. Hughes is an attorney in Santa Fe specializing in Indian law. He is a partner in the Rothstein law firm.

Betsy Chasse, creator of What the Bleep Do We Know!?, presents a memoir, Tipping Sacred Cows
Bookworks, Sunday, July 20 at 3pm
Wife, mother, and award-winning producer of the sleeper hit What the Bleep Do We Know!? Betsy Chasse thought she had it all figured out...until she realized she didn't. She didn't know anything about happiness, love, spirituality, or herself...nothing, nada, zilch.

In a book that's anything but quiet, Chasse takes readers on a playful romp through the muddy fields of life and spirituality. Witty, yet unflinching, Chasse exposes her own experience Tipping Sacred Cows and dissects the fragile beliefs we all hold so dear. Because the truth is, we each have a choice to believe the stories we tell ourselves or create new ones.

A candid, no-nonsense confession, Chasse's story gives readers the freedom to break free from their old patterns and gleefully frolic through fields, cow tipping at will and in the process, create a new reality for themselves.

Betsy Chasse is an internationally known author, filmmaker, and speaker. She is the co-creator of the film What The Bleep Do We Know?! and the author of three books, including Tipping Sacred Cows, Metanoia: A Transformative Change of Heart, and the companion book to BLEEP, Discovering the Endless Possibilities for Altering Your Everyday Reality. She also enjoys blogging for Huff Post, Intent.com, and other sites. Chasse continues to make provocative films exploring human potential and the nature of reality or whatever it is we humans are hanging out in.

Mira Jacob, The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing
Bookworks, Tuesday, July 22 at 7pm
For fans of J. Courtney Sullivan, Meg Wolitzer, Mona Simpson, and Jhumpa Lahiri comes a winning, irreverent debut novel about a family wrestling with its future and its past.

With depth, heart, and agility, debut novelist Mira Jacob takes us on a deftly plotted journey that ranges from 1970s India to suburban 1980s New Mexico to Seattle during the dot.com boom. "The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing "is an epic, irreverent testimony to the bonds of love, the pull of hope, and the power of making peace with life's uncertainties.

Celebrated brain surgeon Thomas Eapen has been sitting on his porch, talking to dead relatives. At least that is the story his wife, Kamala, prone to exaggeration, tells their daughter, Amina, a photographer living in Seattle. Reluctantly Amina returns home and finds a situation that is far more complicated than her mother let on, with roots in a trip the family, including Amina's rebellious brother Akhil, took to India twenty years earlier. Confronted by Thomas's unwillingness to explain himself, strange looks from the hospital staff, and a series of puzzling items buried in her mother's garden, Amina soon realizes that the only way she can help her father is by coming to terms with her family's painful past. In doing so, she must reckon with the ghosts that haunt all of the Eapens.

Advance praise for The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing

"An emotionally bountiful debut . . . The author has a wonderful flair for recreating the messy sprawl of family life, with all its joy, sadness, frustration, and anger."--Publishers Weekly

"Punchy, clever, and stuffed with delicious chapatis, Mira Jacob's first novel jumps effortlessly from India to the States, creating a vibrant portrait of a world in flux."--Gary Shteyngart, author of Little Failure

Mira Jacob is the founder of Pete's Reading Series in New York City and has an MFA from the New School for Social Research. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and son. The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing is her first novel.

Samuel Young, Chef Fritz and His City
Bookworks, Wednesday, July 23 at 7pm
It was the first visit to Philadelphia's Deux Cheminees restaurant for Samuel Young and his wife, Risa, and after the meal, Chef Fritz Blank came grumbling by to join them for a few minutes. Despite his rant, though, his eyes were merry, and he left the table with a joke about the tears of the city's chefs. After that engaging introduction, it was hard not to say oui when the mail brought an announcement that a class with Blank would be introducing students to the preparation of three simple French meals, followed by a sumptuous lunch at Deux Cheminees.

That was the start of a personal and culinary odyssey over the years that took Young through kitchens and cooking schools, dining rooms and classrooms, and-most important-into a rich and abiding friendship with the great chef himself. Now Young's new book takes us all along the path that brought such a full menu of varied experiences, fascinating people, and immersion into the entertaining, warmly human story of the highly creative and talented Fritz Blank.

Albuquerque transplant Samuel Young shares his story.

Anne Hillerman, Spider Woman's Daughter
Bookworks, Thursday, July 24 at 7pm
We welcome Anne Hillerman to Bookworks upon the release of the mass market paperback of Spider woman's daughter this summer.

Anne Hillerman, the talented daughter of bestselling author Tony Hillerman, continues his popular Leaphorn and Chee series with Spider woman's daughter, a Navajo Country mystery, filled with captivating lore, startling suspense, bold new characters, vivid color, and rich Southwestern atmosphere.

Navajo Nation Police Officer Bernadette Manualito witnesses the cold-blooded shooting of someone very close to her. With the victim fighting for his life, the entire squad and the local FBI office are hell-bent on catching the gunman. Bernie, too, wants in on the investigation, despite regulations forbidding eyewitness involvement. But that doesn't mean she's going to sit idly by, especially when her husband, Sergeant Jim Chee, is in charge of finding the shooter.

Bernie and Chee discover that a cold case involving his former boss and partner, retired Inspector Joe Leaphorn, may hold the key. Digging into the old investigation, husband and wife find themselves inching closer to the truth...and closer to a killer determined to prevent justice from taking its course.
