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.

Larry Ball, Tom Horn in Life and Legend
Bookworks, Sunday, July 27 at 3pm
Some of the legendary gunmen of the Old West were lawmen, but more, like Billy the Kid and Jesse James, were outlaws. Tom Horn (1860-1903) was both. Lawman, soldier, hired gunman, detective, outlaw, and assassin, this darkly enigmatic figure has fascinated Americans ever since his death by hanging the day before his forty-third birthday. In this masterful historical biography, Larry Ball, a distinguished historian of western lawmen and outlaws, presents the definitive account of Horn's career.

Larry Ball is Professor Emeritus of History at Arkansas State University, Jonesboro, and the author of five books, including Desert lawmen: The High Sheriffs of New Mexico and Arizona, 1846-1912 and Elfego Baca: In Life and Legend.

Nell Bernstein, Burning Down the House: The End of Juvenile Prison
Bookworks, Monday, July 28 at 7pm
When teenagers scuffle during a basketball game, they are typically benched. But when Will got into it on the court, he and his rival were sprayed in the face at close range by a chemical similar to Mace, denied a shower for twenty-four hours, and then locked in solitary confinement for a month.

One in three American children will be arrested by the time they are twenty-three, and many will spend time locked inside horrific detention centers that defy everything we know about how to rehabilitate young offenders. In a clear-eyed indictment of the juvenile justice system run amok, award-winning journalist Nell Bernstein shows that there is no right way to lock up a child. The very act of isolation denies delinquent children the thing that is most essential to their growth and rehabilitation: positive relationships with caring adults.

Bernstein introduces us to youth across the nation who have suffered violence and psychological torture at the hands of the state. She presents these youths all as fully realized people, not victims. As they describe in their own voices their fight to maintain their humanity and protect their individuality in environments that would deny both, these young people offer a hopeful alternative to the doomed effort to reform a system that should only be dismantled. Burning Down the House is a clarion call to shut down our nation's brutal and counterproductive juvenile prisons and bring our children home. PRAISE for Nell Bernstein "The White House honors Nell Bernstein for her dedication to the well-being of children of incarcerated parents." --The White House Champions of Change

Praise for "All alone in the world", Bernstein's previous book "An urgent invitation to care for all children as our own." --Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, author of "Random Family"

"Powerful. . . . Highly recommended." --"Choice"

"A moving condemnation of the U.S. penal system and its effect on families." --"Parents Press"

"Meticulously reported and sensitively written." --"Salon"

"Brimming with compelling case studies . . . and recommendations for change." --"Orlando Sentinel"

"Serious, moving, and well organized . . . this book could help galvanize a national will to tackle such problems." --"Library Journal" (starred review)

"Bernstein's book pumps up awareness of the problems and provides a checklist for what needs to be done." --"Publishers Weekly"

Alicia Gaspar de Alba, [Un]Framing the "Bad Woman"
Bookworks, Tuesday, July 29 at 6pm
"What the women I write about have in common is that they are all rebels with a cause, and I see myself represented in their mirror," asserts Alicia Gaspar de Alba. Looking back across a career in which she has written novels, poems, and scholarly works about Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, la Malinche, Coyolxauhqui, the murdered women of Juarez, the Salem witches, and Chicana lesbian feminists, Gaspar de Alba realized that what links these historically and socially diverse figures is that they all fall into the category of "bad women," as defined by their place, culture, and time, and all have been punished as well as remembered for rebelling against the "frames" imposed on them by capitalist patriarchal discourses.

In UnFraming the "Bad Woman," Gaspar de Alba revisits and expands several of her published articles and presents three new essays to analyze how specific brown/female bodies have been framed by racial, social, cultural, sexual, national/regional, historical, and religious discourses of identity--as well as how Chicanas can be liberated from these frames. Employing interdisciplinary methodologies of activist scholarship that draw from art, literature, history, politics, popular culture, and feminist theory, she shows how the "bad women" who interest her are transgressive bodies that refuse to cooperate with patriarchal dictates about what constitutes a "good woman" and that queer/alter the male-centric and heteronormative history, politics, and consciousness of Chicano/Mexicano culture. By "unframing" these bad women and rewriting their stories within a revolutionary frame, Gaspar de Alba offers her "companeras" and fellow "luchadoras" empowering models of struggle, resistance, and rebirth.

Jo-Ann Mapson, Owen's Daughter
Bookworks, Thursday, July 31 at 7pm
"Reuniting cherished characters from Solomon's Oak (2010) and Finding Casey (2012), Mapson introduces yet another fetching cast of fragile yet resilient personalities who warmly work their ways into readers' hearts." --Booklist

"Moving . . . Mapson delves deeply into the messy, complex relationships between characters, while rendering the New Mexico landscape so beautifully that it emerges as an additional member of the cast. She has a particularly strong feel for human-animal bonds, creating four-legged (and in one unfortunate case, three-legged) characters that are as distinctive as the human variety." --Publishers Weekly

Skye Elliot is given a choice after her car accident--jail or rehab--and her ex-husband, a bull rider who introduced her to the party scene, gets custody of their four-year-old daughter Gracie. It takes Skye eight months to get clean, but the day she is released, she has one plan: to be a good mother--better, at least, than Skye's own selfish mother and absent dad. Owen Garret hasn't seen his daughter in ten years. He, too, needs to make amends. Newly out of prison, he picks her up from rehab and together they set off to find Gracie, and to forge a relationship that transcends the hurt and anger that have brewed between them for almost a decade. In the meantime, they find Margaret Yearwood, too--Owen's lost love whom he left when he turned himself in for a long-ago crime. Owen's Daughter is a stand-alone novel that brings back characters from Mapson's treasured novel Blue Rodeo, and introduces them to the beloved cast of Solomon's Oak and Finding Casey. With its father-daughter story and characters who overcome personal failings against great odds, Owen's Daughter is a story of love and family that will enchant Mapson fans both old and new.

Jo-Ann Mapson, a third generation Californian, grew up in Fullerton as a middle child with four siblings. She dropped out of college to marry, but later finished a creative writing degree at California State University, Long Beach. Following her son's birth in 1978, Mapson worked an assortment of odd jobs teaching horseback riding, cleaning houses, typing resumes, and working retail. After earning a graduate degree from Vermont College's low residency program, she taught at Orange Coast College for six years before turning to full-time writing in 1996.Jo-Ann Mapson is the author of eleven previous novels, including the beloved Finding Casey, Solomon's Oak, Hank & Chloe, Blue Rodeo (CBS TV movie), and the Los Angeles Times bestsellers The Wilder Sisters and Bad Girl Creek. She lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with her husband and their three dogs. Visit her website at www.joannmapson.com.

Bookworks, Saturday, August 2 at 10:30am
We have a special two-author event. Kimberley Griffiths Little and Nikki Loftin will be here to talk about and sign their books. Kimberley’s latest is The Time of the Fireflies. Nikki’s is Nightingale’s Nest. Both books are wonderful choices for 9 to 12 year olds. Teachers: this will be a fun opportunity to consider possible book titles for classrooms.

About Forbidden: A sweeping, epic saga of romance and hardship, set against the dramatic backdrop of ancient Mesopotamia--perfect for fans of Cleopatra's Moon or the adult bestseller The Red Tent.

In the unforgiving Mesopotamian desert where Jayden's tribe lives, betrothal celebrations abound, and tonight it is Jayden's turn to be honored. But while this union with Horeb, the son of her tribe's leader, will bring a life of riches and restore her family's position within the tribe, it will come at the price of Jayden's heart.

Then a shadowy boy from the Southern Lands appears. Handsome and mysterious, Kadesh fills Jayden's heart with a passion she never knew possible. But with Horeb's increasingly violent threats haunting Jayden's every move, she knows she must find a way to escape--or die trying.

With a Forbidden romance blossoming in her heart and her family's survival on the line, Jayden must finish the deadly journey to save the ones she loves--and find true love for herself.

About Nightingale's Nest

A powerful novel about friendship and family that calls to mind "Bridge to Terabithia"

Twelve-year-old John Fischer Jr., or "Little John" as he's always been known, is spending his summer helping his father with his tree removal business, clearing brush for Mr. King, the wealthy owner of a chain of Texas dollar stores, when he hears a beautiful song that transfixes him. He follows the melody and finds, not a bird, but a young girl sitting in the branches of a tall sycamore tree.

There's something magical about this girl, Gayle, especially her soaring singing voice, and Little John's friendship with Gayle quickly becomes the one bright spot in his life, for his home is dominated by sorrow over his sister's death and his parents' ever-tightening financial difficulties. But then Mr. King draws Little John into an impossible choice--forced to choose between his family's survival and a betrayal of Gayle that puts her future in jeopardy.

Inspired by a Hans Christian Andersen story, "Nightingale's Nest" is an unforgettable novel about a boy with the weight of the world on his shoulders and a girl with the gift of healing in her voice.

Livia King Blackburne, Midnight Thief
Bookworks, Tuesday, August 5 at 7pm
Growing up on Forge's streets has taught Kyra how to stretch a coin. And when that's not enough, her uncanny ability to scale walls and bypass guards helps her take what she needs.

But when the leader of the Assassins Guild offers Kyra a lucrative job, she hesitates. She knows how to get by on her own, and she's not sure she wants to play by his rules. But he is persistent-and darkly attractive-and Kyra can't quite resist his pull.

Tristam of Brancel is a young Palace knight on a mission. After his best friend is brutally murdered by the Demon Riders, a clan of vicious warriors who ride bloodthirsty wildcats, Tristam vows to take them down. But as his investigation deepens, he finds his efforts thwarted by a talented thief, one who sneaks past Palace defenses with uncanny ease.

When a fateful raid throws Kyra and Tristam together, the two enemies realize that their best chance at survival-and vengeance-might be to join forces. And as their loyalties are tested to the breaking point, they learn a startling secret about Kyra's past that threatens to reshape both their lives. In her arresting debut novel, Livia Blackburne creates a captivating world where intrigue prowls around every corner-and danger is a way of life.

Steve Fox, Odyssey: Love & Terror in Greece
Bookworks, Thursday, August 7 at 7pm
Steve Fox had just started his second semester of graduate English study at the University of Texas in January, 1967, when he was drafted to serve in the voracious Vietnam War. But Fox, 23, kept his eyes open and learned how to adapt, resist, and avoid the war in Asia with timely help from a string of angels he meets. He got himself assigned to Athens Air Base in Athens, Greece, where Greek and American friends reveal the terrors of the dictators-known as The Colonels-running the country. In 1969 an ex-Greenwich Village folksinger and Steve's mentor in Athens, Allan Wenger, makes Steve part of the Greek Resistance to the Colonels. Steve and his smart and sassy American girlfriend drink deep of Greek ruins and lore, set a headlong course of self-reinvention as they return to the U.S. and Mexico, and explore the tangled path of love in revolutionary times.

Steve Fox was born in Washington, D.C. to two University of Maryland students-his dad a student in his grad student mom's Spanish class. They moved to Texas where Steve attended public schools. Steve's higher education was interrupted by the draft for the Vietnam War. His first book is Toxic Work: Women Workers at GTE-Lenkurt (Temple U. Press). He is a journalist, photographer, and has taught American Studies at the University of New Mexico and as a Fulbright Lecturer at the Universities of Frankfurt and Hamburg, Germany.
