Author Event: Anung's Journey: An Ancient Ojibway Legend as Told by Steve Fobister - Carl Nordgren
Park Road Books, Saturday, January 3, 2015 at 2pm
When the orphaned Anung sets out on his vision quest, he sees clearly that his purpose in life is to find the greatest chief of all and tell him of the many acts of kindness the mothers and fathers of the village have given to Anung. When the people of his village learn of the vision, they are proud of him. For every man of the village loves Anung as his son. Every woman is his mother. They believe Gitche Manitou, the great creator, has chosen their son for a special journey. In his quest to find the greatest chief, Anung travels through the 13 tribes of the First Nations, across forests, plains, water, and desert. Along the way, he is accompanied by Turtle, the interpreter of all languages. He finds friends in the most unlikely of places-a squirrel's nest, a mother bear's den, and a city filled with people from every tribe. At each stop, Anung and his drum sing of his mothers and fathers and his quest to meet the greatest chief. What Anung finds at the end of his journey will both surprise and thrill readers of all ages. This ancient legend, told in the beautifully poetic style of Carl Nordgren, begs to be read aloud and savored.

Author Event: Little Book Of Do - Kel Landis
Park Road Books, Thursday, January 8, 2015 at 7pm
Author Kel Landis has spent 30 years in banking and private equity, and a lifetime as a community leader. An insightful observer of humanity, he's learned why some people struggle to find success, purpose, and fulfillment, while others seem to have it all.

In The Little Book of Do, Kel reveals that it's not the achievement of goals that makes life rich and fulfilling, but the journey in pursuit of those goals it's the doing part that counts. Moreover, it demonstrates that do is the key driver of success in becoming an action-oriented contributor in your family, workplace, and community. Citing real people in real-life situations, he illustrates a central premise: by doing, we become.

Kel identifies the impediments to a life of doing and offers a practical methodology for deciding which pursuits should be delayed, which should be dismissed, and which should be pursued as if your life depends on it

Author Event: Before I Go - Colleen Oakley
Park Road Books, Friday, January 9, 2015 at 7pm
A heart-wrenching debut novel in the bestselling tradition of P.S. I Love You about a young woman with breast cancer who undertakes a mission to find a new wife for her husband before she passes away.

Twenty-seven-year-old Daisy already beat breast cancer three years ago. How can this be happening to her again?

On the eve of what was supposed to be a triumphant “Cancerversary” with her husband Jack to celebrate three years of being cancer-free, Daisy suffers a devastating blow: her doctor tells her that the cancer is back, but this time it’s an aggressive stage four diagnosis. She may have as few as four months left to live. Death is a frightening prospect—but not because she’s afraid for herself. She’s terrified of what will happen to her brilliant but otherwise charmingly helpless husband when she’s no longer there to take care of him. It’s this fear that keeps her up at night, until she stumbles on the solution: she has to find him another wife.

With a singular determination, Daisy scouts local parks and coffee shops and online dating sites looking for Jack’s perfect match. But the further she gets on her quest, the more she questions the sanity of her plan. As the thought of her husband with another woman becomes all too real, Daisy’s forced to decide what’s more important in the short amount of time she has left: her husband’s happiness—or her own?

Author Event: The Mussorgsky Riddle - Darin Kennedy
Park Road Books, Saturday, January 10, 2015 at 2pm
Psychic Mira Tejedor possesses unique talents that enable her to find anything and anyone, but now she must find a comatose boy wandering lost inside the labyrinth of his own mind. Thirteen-year-old Anthony Faircloth hasn’t spoken a word in almost a month and with each passing day, his near catatonic state worsens. No doctor, test, or scan can tell Anthony’s distraught mother what has happened to her already troubled son. In desperation, she turns to Mira for answers, hoping her unique abilities might succeed where science has failed.

At their first encounter, Mira is pulled into Anthony’s mind and finds the child’s psyche shattered into the various movements of Modest Mussorgsky’s classical music suite, Pictures at an Exhibition. As she navigates this magical dreamscape drawn from Anthony’s twin loves of Russian composers and classical mythology, Mira must contend with gnomes, troubadours, and witches in her search for the truth behind Anthony’s mysterious malady.

The real world, however, holds its own dangers. The onset of Anthony’s condition coincides with the disappearance of his older brother’s girlfriend, a missing persons case that threatens to tear the city apart. Mira discovers that in order to save Anthony, she will have to catch a murderer who will stop at nothing to keep the secrets contained in Anthony’s unique mind from ever seeing the light.

Author Event: The Secret Of Magic - Deborah Johnson
Park Road Books, Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at 7pm
In 1946 Regina Robinchard is a rarity. A young New York civil rights lawyer, working for Thurgood Marshall, Reggie stumbles across a letter asking her boss to investigate the case of a young black soldier whose body had been found floating in the river in Mississippi. It fires her zeal. For Reggie, justice is not the only draw to this case. The letter is signed by the reclusive M.P. Calhoun, author of one of the most banned books in the country, a book Regie loved as a child, about the friendship between three children, black and white, a magical forest - and a murder. Regie has just three weeks in the South to investigate. But once down in Mississippi, amid the intoxicating landscape of cotton fields and lush plantations, Reggie not only finds herself further away from New York that she had ever imagined, but walking directly into M.P. Calhoun's book, a place where more than one type of justice exists.

The slaughter of the Spartan Three Hundred at Thermopylae, Greece 480 BCE-when King Leonidas tried to stop the Persian army with only his elite guard-is well known. But just what did King Xerxes do after he defeated the Greeks? Fifteen-year-old Thaleia is haunted by visions: roofs dripping blood, Athens burning. She tries to convince her best friend and all the villagers that she's not crazy. The gods do speak to her. And the gods have plans for this girl. When Xerxes' army of a million Persians marches straight to the mountain village Delphi to claim the Temple of Apollo's treasures and sacred power, Thaleia's gift may be her people's last line of defense. Her destiny may be to save Greece... but is one girl strong enough to stop an entire army?
