Book Buzz
Lemont Public Library, Tuesday, September 23 at 8pm
Book Buzz -- Discover new books, broaden your horizons, and share your insights.
1984, by George Orwell
1984 is the year in which it happens. The world is divided into three great powers. Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia, each perpetually at war with the other. Throughout Oceania, 'The Party' rules by the agency of four ministries, whose power is absolute -- the Ministry of Peace, which deals with war, the Ministry of Love (headquarters of the dreaded Thought Police), which deals with law and order, the Ministry of Plenty, which deals in scarcities, and the Ministry of Truth which deals with propaganda. The authorities keep a check on every action, word, gesture or thought.
Discussion will be led by Youth Services Librarian Mary Inman. Copies of the book are available one month in advance at the Circulation Desk. Refreshments will be served. All are welcome. (added from Eventkeeper)

Kinded Spirits Book Club: The Sun and Other Stars Discussion
Evergreen Park Public Library, Wednesday, September 24 at 7pm
By Chicago author, Brigid Pasulka. In the seaside village of San Benedetto, a resort town on the Italian Riviera, twenty-two year old Etto finds himself adrift. Within the past year, Etto has not only lost both his twin brother and his mother, but in his grief has become estranged from his father, the local butcher. While his father passes the time with the men of the town in the fine tradition of Italian men everywhere—a reverential obsession with soccer—Etto retreats ever further from his day-to-day life, seeking out solace in the hills above the town.

But when Yuri Fil, a scandalized Ukrainian soccer star, takes refuge in the town along with his captivating younger sister, Zhuki, they sweep Etto into their universe of faith, hope, love and humor. Accompanied on his journey by the modern incarnations from Dante's Divine Comedy who populate his town, Etto starts to reconstruct his relationship with his father, learns to stop playing defense, and once again opens himself up to the world.

Author Discussion & Signing with D.E. Ireland
Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, Saturday, September 27 at 2pm
Author Discussion & Signing with D.E. Ireland Title: Wouldn't It Be Deadly: An Eliza Doolittle & Henry Higgins Mystery (The First in the series.) Following her successful appearance at an Embassy Ball—where Eliza Doolittle won Professor Henry Higgins’ bet that he could pass off a Cockney flower girl as a duchess—Eliza becomes an assistant to his chief rival Emil Nepommuck. After Nepommuck publicly takes credit for transforming Eliza into a lady, an enraged Higgins submits proof to a London newspaper that Nepommuck is a fraud. When Nepommuck is found with a dagger in his back, Henry Higgins becomes Scotland Yard’s prime suspect. However, Eliza learns that most of Nepommuck’s pupils had a reason to murder their blackmailing teacher. As another suspect turn up dead and evidence goes missing, Eliza and Higgins realize the only way to clear the Professor’s name is to discover which of Nepommuck’s many enemies is the real killer. When all the suspects attend a performance of Hamlet at Drury Lane, Eliza and Higgins don their theatre best and race to upstage a murderer.

Eliza and Higgins make a surprising and charming pair of detectives in D.E. Ireland's delightfully hilarious series debut, which transports readers to Edwardian London, from the aristocratic environs of Mayfair to the dangerous back alleys of the East End. Wouldn't It Be Deadly boasts a cunning mystery, no shortage of interesting suspects, and some of the most memorable characters of English literature.

About the Author

D.E. IRELAND is a writing team of two authors who met as undergraduates in an anthropology class and have remained friends ever since. Both are married to computer geeks, and each has one beautiful and brilliant daughter. Lifelong book lovers and history buffs, they have authored several novels on their own. Ireland lives in Michigan.

Praise for Wouldn't It Be Deadly: An Eliza Doolittle & Henry Higgins Mystery…

“In this exciting new novel, Eliza and Higgins are still nursing their grievances against each other when a murder forces them to work together. Join them in this delightful romp through early 20th century London as they try to find a killer and clear Higgins’ name.”—Victoria Thompson, national bestselling author of Murder in Chelsea

“The charming and feisty Eliza Doolittle, the masterful Henry Higgins, a Hungarian upstart, a Sanskrit scholar—all are brought together in an intriguing plot. D.E. Ireland gives us a fascinating look into a bygone world.”—Susan Wittig Albert, national bestselling author of The Darling Dahlias and the Texas Star

“When I first heard that D.E. Ireland was writing Wouldn’t It Be Deadly, a mystery featuring Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolittle, I could have danced all night. We've only been waiting a century for another glimpse of this wonderful duo, and there is no better format than a juicy Edwardian murder. Higgins is his irascible, aristocratic self, while Eliza grows and evolves quickly in a world of society intrigue and danger. They make a wonderful pair of sleuths. Having now read Ireland's work I can safely say, ‘By George, I think she's got it!’"—Will Thomas, author of Fatal Enquiry
