Author event: Margaret Stohl - Idols (Icons #2) and Brendan Reichs - Exposure (Viral Series #4)
Park Road Books, Wednesday, September 3 at 4:30pm
Idols (Icons #2)

Dol, Ro, Tima, and Lucas are the four Icon Children, the only humans immune to the Icon's power to stop a human heart. Now that Los Angeles has been saved, things are more complicated - and not just because Dol has to choose between Lucas and Ro, the two great loves of her life. As she flees to a resistance outpost hidden beneath a mountain, Dol makes contact with a fifth Icon Child, if only through her visions.

When Dol and the others escape to Southeast Asia in search of this missing child, Dol's dreams, feelings and fears collide in an epic showdown that will change more than just four lives -- and stop one heart forever. In this riveting sequel to "Icons, "filled with nonstop action and compelling romance, bestselling author Margaret Stohl explores what it means to be human and how our greatest weakness can be humanity's strongest chance at survival.

Exposure (Viral Series #4)

The fourth volume in the Virals series is as fast-paced as the previous outings about four teens bound together by special heightened senses after being exposed to a virus carrying wolf DNA. Oddities in their powers—surging and blinking at the worst possible moments—keep them on their toes as they investigate the kidnapping of three Charleston, South Carolina, prep school classmates. The low country atmosphere of historical homes, sand dunes, and magnolia-lined lanes adds great atmosphere, while a twist at the end offers a new plot thread begging to be expanded. Fans will eagerly await the next installment. --Karen Cruze

Author event: Tony Earley - Mr. Tall: A Novella and Stories
Park Road Books, Wednesday, September 3 at 7pm
The highly anticipated return of Tony Earley, celebrated author of "Jim the Boy"

Two decades after his debut collection Here We Are in Paradise (LB, 2/94) heralded Tony Earley as one of the most accomplished writers of his generation, the rueful, bittersweet, and riotous stories of "Mr. Tall "reestablish him as a mythmaker and tale spinner of the first rank. These stories introduce us not only to ordinary people seeking to live extraordinary lives, but also to the skunk ape (a southern variant of Bigfoot), the ghost of Jesse James, and a bone-tired Jack the Giant Killer. Whether it's Appalachia, Nashville, the Carolina Coast, or a make-believe land of talking dogs, each world Earley creates is indelible.

Author event: Larry Rogers - Sword and Scalpel: A Doctor Looks Back on Vietnam
Park Road Books, Thursday, September 4 at 7pm
A fascinating memoir detailing the life and experiences of Dr. Larry Rogers, MD, who volunteered to serve as a medical doctor in Vietnam during the most intense phase of fighting--the days and months leading up to the infamous Tet Offensive. Slogging through streams and jungle, he and his colleagues weathered not only fire fights and rockets attacks but scorpions and deadly snakes. But he also experienced stunning medical triumphs, including returning life to a soldier left for dead in a makeshift morgue and resuscitating another by hastily jerry-rigging a defibrillator from an auxiliary generator and strips of radio-antenna wire. A riveting portrait of survival and healing during a time of war.

Author event/poetry reading: Glenn Proctor - Kicking Bottles, News & Dust
Park Road Books, Saturday, September 6 at 11am
This work - and the two books of the trilogy to follow - is how I write and understand poetry. It represents so many life experiences - success, pride, danger, addiction, love, competition, truth, failure, laughter, disappointment, fun, mystery, hope and the death of so many relatives, friends and Marine and journalism colleagues. Through it all, the Good Brother upstairs was always with me no matter how out of control or successful my life has been. This is my story.

Park Road Books, Saturday, September 6 at 2pm
"Middle School Makeover" is a guide for parents and educators to help the tweens in their lives navigate the socially fraught hallways, gyms, and cafeterias of middle school. The book helps parents, teachers, and other adults in middle school settings to understand the social dilemmas and other issues that kids today face.

Using both recent research and her personal, extensive experience working with middle-school-aged kids and their parents, Icard offers readers concrete and practical advice for guiding children through this chaotic developmental stage while also building their confidence.

Author event: Jennifer Murphy - I Love You More
Park Road Books, Sunday, September 7 at 2pm
One man, three wives, the perfect murder. A scintillating novel of betrayal and conspiracy.

Picasso Lane is twelve years old when her father, Oliver, is murdered at their summer beach house. Her mother, Diana, is the primary suspect--until the police discover his second wife, and then his third. The women say they have never met--but Picasso knows otherwise. Picasso remembers the morning beautiful Jewels showed up at their house, carrying the same purse as her mother, and a family portrait featuring her father with two strange boys. Picasso remembers lifting the phone, listening to late night calls with Bert, a woman heavily pregnant with Oliver's fourth child.

As the police circle and a detective named Kyle Kennedy becomes a regular fixture in their home, Picasso tries to make sense of her father's death, the depth of his deceit, and the secrets that bind these three women. Cunningly paced and plotted, "I Love You More" is a riveting novel of misplaced loyalty, jealousy, and revenge.

Author event: Peggy Savage Baumgardner - Andersons Survive the Civil War Then Seal It with a Kiss
Park Road Books, Saturday, September 13 at 2pm
Andersons Survive the Civil War takes the reader on a fascinating journey of one Irish family's relocation from New York to New Orleans right as the Civil War was about to erupt. The Anderson family survived not only the long wagon ride south, but also the tense years of conflict that saw Union soldiers take over the city of New Orleans in hostile fashion. The book, thankfully, does not stop there. You will go up and down the Mississippi River on a riverboat with Michael Anderson, "The World's Greatest Magician," as he performs nightly in the trade his parents taught him. You will also follow the paths of Mr. and Mrs. Anderson and all of their children as they spread across the country and make a good living in the careers they choose, or have chosen for them. You will also see how love can persist over many years and thousands of miles, against all odds.

Author event: Millie West - Catherine's Cross
Park Road Books, Saturday, September 20 at 2pm
When Jenks Ellington experiences a sudden, alarming sense of panic about her identical twin sister Gigi, she has to wait until nearly midnight before learning the reason for her unease: Gigi has drowned while diving for artifacts in a Low Country river near Beaufort, South Carolina. Although Beaufort County detective Seth Mason is suspicious of Gigi's diving partner, there is no evidence of foul play. But, when Gigi's Port Royal home is broken into and ransacked, Jenks discovers two clues--one of which leads her to the home of a local Gullah medium.

In a painstaking search for answers, Jenks delves more deeply into her twin's life. Along the way, her bond with Detective Mason reaches unexpected depths. And what secrets could medium Meta Jane be holding? Was Gigi's death really an accident?

Author event: Howard Hoover - Travels Through a Toxic Shock Nightmare
Park Road Books, Sunday, September 21 at 2pm
In the prime of his life, Howard Hoover was suddenly struck down by an illness. It blindsided him and his family. It came out of nowhere, and all the prior trivialities that took up his thoughts and energy melted away in the face of a life-and-death drama: toxic shock syndrome. The aptly named illness was both toxic and shocking. Hoover recounts his battle in "Travels through a Toxic Shock Nightmare." His remarkable ability to recall details during this level of critical illness is rare-unheard of, in fact. Thankfully, Hoover did remember most of his journey, and his path to health put a lot of things in his life into proper perspective. Hoover shares the life lessons that only a sweeping tragedy can create. His perspective is personal, and he shares his story through a lens of sorrow, grief, fear, humor, and faith.

Hoover's sudden illness was extreme and dangerous. He was on the brink of death and it was not certain that a positive outcome was on the horizon. He fought a courageous battle for weeks, and in the end his life was forever changed. Hoover fell victim to the number-one killer in hospitals today: sepsis. This killer disease that was once mostly dangerous to the very young, very ill, or very old is now reaching out to affect healthy adults. Strong people who were never thought to be at risk are now very much in danger, and Hoover wants everyone from critical care providers to patients and families to understand this very dangerous, prevalent menace. Hoover's book offers a complete picture from the patient's viewpoint of how the disease can take hold and how it progresses. Readers will be struck dumb by the tremendous devastation that can be unleashed in mere days-even hours-once the patient's immune system overreacts to fight the tenacious infection, leaving terrible damage and all too often death in its wake.
