Nina MacLaughlin reads from Hammer Head: The Making of a Carpenter
Charis Books and More, Tuesday, April 7 at 7:30pm
Nina MacLaughlin spent her twenties working at a Boston newspaper, sitting behind a desk and staring at a screen. Yearning for more tangible work, she applied for a job she saw on Craigslist Carpenter s Assistant: Women strongly encouraged to apply despite being a Classics major who couldn't tell a Phillips from a flathead screwdriver. She got the job, and in Hammer head she tells the rich and entertaining story of becoming a carpenter. Writing with infectious curiosity, MacLaughlin describes the joys and frustrations of making things by hand, reveals the challenges of working as a woman in an occupation that is 99 percent male, and explains how manual labor changed the way she sees the world. We meet her unflappable mentor, Mary, a petite but tough carpenter-sage ( Be smarter than the tools ), as well as wild demo dudes, foul-mouthed plumbers, grizzled hardware store clerks, and the colorful clients whose homes she and Mary work in. Whisking her readers from job to job building a wall, remodeling a kitchen, gut-renovating a house MacLaughlin examines the history of the tools she uses and the virtues and varieties of wood. Throughout, she draws on the wisdom of Ovid, Annie Dillard, Studs Terkel, and Mary Oliver to illuminate her experience of work. And, in a deeply moving climax, MacLaughlin strikes out on her own for the first time to build bookshelves for her own father. Hammer head is a passionate book full of sweat, swearing, bashed thumbs, and a deep sense of finding real meaning in work and life." This is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Event. The suggested donation is $5. Listen to the NPR interview with Nina MacLaughlin http://www.npr.org/2015/03/21/393599207/thanks-to-chance-and-craigslist-a-writer...

Robin Oliveira reads from I Always Loved You at Georgia Center for the Book
Charis Books and More, Wednesday, April 8 at 7:15pm
Paris, 1926. An aging Mary Cassatt, eyesight failing, searches through the clutter of her art studio for a bundle of lost letters. The sight of them—bound in silk ribbon, fading and difficult to make out—takes her back to her fateful introduction to Edgar Degas and to the love and heartbreak that followed. In her novel, I ALWAYS LOVED YOU, Robin Oliveira, author of the New York Times bestselling My Name Is Mary Sutter, tells of the tumultuous and passionate relationship between these two celebrated artists of the Impressionist movement. Forty-nine years earlier, after the Civil War, a young Mary Cassatt moves from Philadelphia to Paris to pursue a life as an artist. It proves difficult: along with her father’s outspoken disapproval of her way of life, Mary struggles to support herself with her meager earnings from painting and suffers the shame of rejection from the Paris Salon, where all of France’s most prominent artists exhibit. Then one day, a friend introduces Mary to the artist Edgar Degas, and her art—and life—are changed forever. Edgar proves to be mercurial and temperamental; he is, in turns, charming and insolent, prone to selfishness and wounding remarks, but also charismatic, captivating, and inspiring. As artistic collaborators, friends, antagonists, and, presumably, lovers, Mary and Edgar forge an impassioned relationship that deeply impacts the nature of their art and defines both of their lives. I ALWAYS LOVED YOU brilliantly recreates the irresistible world of Belle Époque Paris, capturing the golden age of Impressionism and peopled with many prominent figures of the movement including Édouard Manet and Berthe Morisot (the only other prominent female artist working in Paris at that time) whose own romantic relationship is also the subject of gossip and scandal. Robin Oliveira writes with grace and uncommon insight into the lives of artists and the passions and foibles of the human heart. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Robin Oliveira holds a BA in Russian and studied at the Pushkin Language Institute in Moscow. She received an MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts and is also a registered nurse, specializing in critical care. She lives in Seattle, Washington.

"Empire Valley: The Arrival" Book Release Party with Ellie Collins
Charis Books and More, Thursday, April 9 at 7:30pm
We are so excited to welcome local author Ellie Collins to celebrate the publication of Empire Valley, the first book in her new series which readers are describing as "Sleepy Hollow" meets "Once Upon A Time".

After the government is forced to accept the existence of supernatural creatures, they are rounded up, imprisoned and shipped off to an island to live out the rest of their days, forbidden to leave or to ever have contact with humanity again. As seemingly random acts of violence break out across the island, the seeds of rebellion begin to take route.

Sophia Desai, a Shapeshifter, is an officer on the island, processing new arrivals and pushing papers. When she begins the investigation of a strange murder, she begins to see the true dark side of their home, and of the people who put them there. This is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Literary Event. The suggested donation is $5.
