Kidliterate: A book club by Laurel Snyder and Rebekah Goode-Peoples
Charis Books and More, Tuesday, July 29 at 7pm
In July, Laurel Snyder, Rebekah Goode-Peoples and Charis Books and More/Charis Circle will be hosting the inaugural meeting of a new kind of book club. Join us for a wide-ranging conversation. We'll be reading one book a month (children's or young adult fiction). Titles will be very carefully selected. We'll seek out books that push the boundaries of what kidlit is "supposed to do." Preference will be give to stories that some might call "edgy" or "controversial." Books that offer exposure to the world our kids are growing up in, as well as imaginary landscapes. These will be books that might scare other parents. Books with "language" and "mature content." They may be "upsetting" books. The kind of books that "give kids ideas." We like ideas. We believe that books are the very best place for kids to encounter scary things and foreign concepts. We believe that books can help prepare kids to engage with the world around them. We believe kids are smart and resilient, great at asking tough questions. We believe they should. But we also just like reading kids' books. So come if you like amazingly good books! Come if you'd like to be introduced to titles you might not otherwise read! Come if you think books should stir the pot. Come for a new an way to screen your child's summer reading! Come if you want to argue with us! Just come. This is a Charis Circle Whole Children, Strong Families Program. The suggested donation is $5. July's book is The Riverman by Aaron Starmer. About the book: Alistair Cleary is the kid who everyone trusts. Fiona Loomis is not the typical girl next door. Alistair hasn't really thought of her since they were little kids until she shows up at his doorstep with a proposition: she wants him to write her biography. What begins as an odd vanity project gradually turns into a frightening glimpse into the mind of a potentially troubled girl. Fiona says that in her basement, there’s a portal that leads to a magical world where a creature called The Riverman is stealing the souls of children. And Fiona’s soul could be next. If Fiona really believes what she’s saying, Alistair fears she may be crazy. But if it’s true, her life could be at risk. In this novel from Aaron Starmer, it’s up to Alistair to separate fact from fiction, fantasy from reality.

Bill Morris, Motor City Burning
A Cappella Books, Thursday, July 31 at 7pm
In Bill Morris's 1992 debut, Motor City, the veteran journalist and staff writer at The Millions skillfully explored the city at the height of the automobile's Golden Age. Michiko Kakutani compared him to Updike, and Frank Rich praised the novel's recapturing of the "clean, voluptuous pleasure" of the ‘50s—the "first American decade that could be caricatured by the brand names of its material goods."

In Motor City Burning, Morris catches up with Detroit as that idyll is just starting to crumble. Straddling the race riots of 1967 and Opening Day of the Tigers' 1968 season, Motor City Burning evokes the turmoil and the triumph of the time, with a keen eye toward a city that has become, in the contemporary imagination, analogous with the tragedy of shifting values.

Morris is touring the southeast in a vintage American woody, and he's bringing Motor City Burning and its Motown soundtrack to Atlanta. On Thursday, July 31st, at 7:00 p.m., Morris reads from and discusses Motor City Burning at The Reading Room, A Cappella's new event space, adjacent to the store.

About Motor City Burning:

Willie Bledsoe, once an idealistic young black activist, is now a burnt-out case. After leaving a snug berth at Tuskegee Institute to join the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, he has become bitterly disillusioned with the civil rights movement and its leaders. He returns home to Alabama to try to write a memoir about his time in the cultural whirlwind, but the words fail to come.

The surprise return of his Vietnam veteran brother in the spring of 1967 gives Willie a chance to drive a load of smuggled guns to the Motor City – and make enough money to jump-start his stalled dream of writing his movement memoir. There, at Tiger Stadium on Opening Day of the 1968 baseball season – postponed two days in deference to the funeral of Martin Luther King, Jr. – Willie learns some terrifying news: the Detroit police are still investigating the last unsolved murder from the bloody, apocalyptic riot of the previous summer, and a white cop named Frank Doyle will not rest until the case is solved. And Willie is his prime suspect.

Bill Morris's rich and thrilling new novel sets Doyle's hunt amid the history of one of America's most tortured and fascinating cities, as Doyle and Willie struggle with Detroit's deep racial divide, with revenge and forgiveness – and with the realization that justice is rarely attainable, and rarely just.

Advance Praise:

“A jarring, challenging book that breaks a lot of rules from a writer already excitingly and powerfully in command of his craft.” --Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“A wonderfully atmospheric novel that captures time and place, an illumination of a pivotal point in history. Bill Morris is an exceptionally gifted and savvy writer. The comparison to Graham Greene is fully merited.” --Nelson DeMille

Pearl Cleage at Stonecrest Library: Things I Should Have Told My Daughter: Lies, Lessons & Love Affairs
Charis Books and More, Monday, August 11 at 7pm
Pearl Cleage visits the Stonecrest Library to read and sign books provided by Charis.

In this inspiring memoir, the award-winning playwright and bestselling author of "What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day" reminisces on the art of juggling marriage, motherhood, and politics while working to become a successful writer. In addition to being one of the most popular living playwrights in America, Pearl Cleage is a bestselling author with an Oprah Book Club pick and multiple awards to her credit. But there was a time when such stellar success seemed like a dream. In this revelatory and deeply personal work, Cleage takes readers back to the 1970s and '80s, retracing her struggles to hone her craft amidst personal and professional tumult. Though born and raised in Detroit, it was in Atlanta that Cleage encountered the forces that would most shape her experience. Married to Michael Lomax, now head of the United Negro College Fund, she worked with Maynard Jackson, Atlanta's first African-American mayor. "Lies, Lessons & Love Affairs" charts not only the political fights, but also the pull she began to feel to focus on her own passions, including writing--a pull that led her away from Lomax as she grappled with ideas of feminism and self-fulfillment. This fascinating memoir follows her journey from a columnist for a local weekly (bought by Larry Flynt) to a playwright and Hollywood script writer, an artist at the crossroads of culture and politics whose circle came to include luminaries like Richard Pryor, Avery Brooks, Phylicia Rashad, Shirley Franklin, and Jesse Jackson. By the time Oprah Winfrey picked "What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day" as a favorite, Cleage had long since arrived as a writer of renown.

This is a Georgia Center for the Book Event. It is free and open to the public.

Rare Book Showcase
A Cappella Books, Thursday, August 14 at 6:30pm
When we opened in 1989, and for much of our history, A Cappella was exclusively a used, out-of-print, and rare book store. Having apprenticed in the trade in San Francisco, we were classic antiquarian dealers with a West Coast vibe, further shaped by our Southern heritage and funky intown-Atlanta environs.

Like almost everything else about the book business, A Cappella has changed enormously over the past couple of decades. Now, bright, dust jacketed new books from all major publishers dominate the shelves of our tiny shop, obscuring to many shoppers the fact that we even still deal in old and collectible volumes.

We do. Though it may no longer pay the rent, the antiquarian trade is too much in our DNA for us to ever leave it entirely behind.

On a Throwback Thursday, August 14 from 6:30 until 9 p.m. we’ll be back to our old selves like we haven’t been in years. The most prominent of Atlanta’s antiquarian book dealers are taking over our store for our first ever “Rare Book Showcase.”

Participating dealers are:

-- Cliff Graubart, whose Old New York Bookshop set the standard for a generation in the Atlanta rare book scene,

-- David McCord, the preeminent dealer in Atlanta historical ephemera,

-- David Hamilton, of Americana Books, specializing in Civil War, Southern and general U.S. history,

-- Kenneth Mallory, former A Cappella manager, whose rare book business these days shines a spotlight on “where the fringes of art and culture meet in a visually interesting context.”

Each of these dealers will have on display, and for sale, a special selection from their collections in “The Reading Room,” the new events space adjacent to A Cappella.

As space is limited, we’ll host a wine and cheese reception, with live music, on our patio throughout the evening, as our guests take turns viewing books, documents, ephemera and other antiquarian items that are rarely on display or for sale outside of antiquarian book fairs.

Attendance is free. A Cappella’s main space will remain open late for this special evening, and our guest dealers will have items priced from $25 to $25,000. (jasbro)

Workshop with Award-Winning Atlanta Memoirist and Writing Instructor Jessica Handler
A Cappella Books, Wednesday, August 20 at 7pm
Writing the Tough Stuff

Everyone experiences personal difficulty at some point in their lives. We may find that we want to write about loss, grief, or trauma with the notion that getting it down on paper will be cathartic. In this workshop we'll explore strategies for strong literary writing, discuss cross-disciplinary research in creating trauma narratives, and start some writing exercises of our own. Open to writers of all levels.

Jessica Handler is the author of Invisible Sisters: A Memoir which was named one of the “Twenty Five Books All Georgians Should Read” and Atlanta magazine’s “Best Memoir of 2009.” Her latest book is Braving the Fire: A Guide to Writing About Grief. Her writing has appeared in Tin House, Newsweek, The Washington Post, and More Magazine. She conducts writing workshops across the country.

Space for this workshop is very limited. The cost per person is $30, which includes tax and a copy of Braving the Fire, or $20 without the book. We are taking reservations at the store, by phone (404) 681-5128, and online through the Event webpage below. (jasbro)
