Mary Sarotte, The Collapse
Porter Square Books, Monday, November 24 at 7pm
"A lucid, compelling account that illuminates the most astonishing event of the late twentieth century. With verve and impeccable scholarship, Mary Elise Sarotte tells a tale no novelist could have invented—the decline and fall of the Berlin Wall." -- Rick Atkinson

On the night of November 9, 1989, massive crowds surged toward the Berlin Wall, drawn by an announcement that caught the world by surprise: East Germans could now move freely to the West. The Wall--infamous symbol of divided Cold War Europe--seemed to be falling. But the opening of the gates that night was not planned by the East German ruling regime--nor was it the result of a bargain between either Ronald Reagan or George H.W. Bush and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev.

It was an accident.

In The collapse, prize-winning historian Mary Elise Sarotte reveals how a perfect storm of decisions made by daring underground revolutionaries, disgruntled Stasi officers, and dictatorial party bosses sparked an unexpected series of events culminating in the chaotic fall of the Wall. With a novelist's eye for character and detail, she brings to vivid life a story that sweeps across Budapest, Prague, Dresden, and Leipzig and up to the armed checkpoints in Berlin.

We meet the revolutionaries Roland Jahn, Aram Radomski, and Siggi Schefke, risking it all to smuggle the truth across the Iron Curtain; the hapless Politburo member Gunter Schabowski, mistakenly suggesting that the Wall is open to a press conference full of foreign journalists, including NBC's Tom Brokaw; and Stasi officer Harald Jager, holding the fort at the crucial border crossing that night. Soon, Brokaw starts broadcasting live from Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, where the crowds are exulting in the euphoria of newfound freedom--and the dictators are plotting to restore control.

Drawing on new archival sources and dozens of interviews, The collapse offers the definitive account of the night that brought down the Berlin Wall.

Mary Sarotte is a visiting professor in both the government and history departments at Harvard.

Head-Banging, Dice-Rolling, and Summoning Demons: A Talk about Rock, Dungeons & Dragons, the Occult, and Philosophy
Pandemonium Books and Games, Tuesday, November 25 at 7pm
How does Led Zeppelin connect to Gary Gygax? Can rock and roll be a religion? Is the Dungeon Master's guide a holy text? Other than that weird kid who taught you how to play D&D in middle school, is anyone actually chaotic evil? Join three writers and gamers -- Christopher Robichaud (http://www.hks.harvard.edu/about/faculty-staff-directory/christopher-robichaud), editor of Dungeons and Dragons and Philosophy; Peter Bebergal (mysterytheater.blogspot.com), author ofSeason of the Witch: How the Occult Saved Rock and Roll; and Ethan Gilsdorf (ethangilsdorf.com) author of Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks -- for a free-ranging discussion about rock, D&D, the occult, philosophy, dungeonmastery, morality, soul craft, and spiritually. We'll probably talk about the Satan Panic of the 1980s, too, and try to decode that mysterious art on Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy. Followed by a Q&A and book signing with the authors.

Gregory Maguire, Egg & Spoon
Porter Square Books, Sunday, December 7 at 5pm
"Like the matryoshka doll Elena carries, there are a lot of layers to Maguire's story. Rich, descriptive language will reward readers who like to sink their teeth into a meaty story." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Elena Rudina lives in the impoverished Russian countryside. Her father has been dead for years. One of her brothers has been conscripted into the Tsar's army, the other taken as a servant in the house of the local landowner. Her mother is dying, slowly, in their tiny cabin. And there is no food. But then a train arrives in the village, a train carrying untold wealth, a cornucopia of food, and a noble family destined to visit the Tsar in Saint Petersburg — a family that includes Ekaterina, a girl of Elena’s age. When the two girls' lives collide, an adventure is set in motion, an escapade that includes mistaken identity, a monk locked in a tower, a prince traveling incognito, and — in a starring role only Gregory Maguire could have conjured — Baba Yaga, witch of Russian folklore, in her ambulatory house perched on chicken legs.

Gregory Maguire is the author of the incredibly popular books in the Wicked Years series, including Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, which inspired the musical. He is also the author of several books for children, including What-the-Dickens, a New York Times bestseller. Gregory Maguire lives outside Boston.
