Author Event: David Oakley - Why Is Your Name Upside Down?
Park Road Books, Wednesday, April 1 at 7pm
Don't do things that people will remember. Do things that people will never forget. Like eating a fishing worm to make a point. Why is Your Name Upside Down? is a collection of hilariously entertaining stories from award-winning creative director David Oakley's adventures in advertising. For over 25 years, David has been creating provocative brand stories and experiences that people want to share. From starting his own agency with the biggest presidential campaign blunder in history to smashing a car with a giant muffin, David's stories are a rollicking good read. These stories go well beyond advice to the young advertising professional. Even people who hate advertising will love learning how to make peace with the "Celine Dion curse," how a ping-pong table bought from a drug dealer can cure your writer's block, and how to deal with a celebrity spokesman who insists on destroying your client's product. If for nothing else, you should read, Why is Your Name Upside Down? just to find out why Oakley is upside down in the BooneOakley logo. At least once a week, someone comes to the front door of the agency to tell us that our sign is upside down. And they want to know why. So David tells them the story. The advertising business is a story telling business. Every day, our job is to tell brand stories. In the form of TV commercials, radio spots, digital content and even billboards. The ads we create are often a story themselves. But behind these ads are a lot more stories. Relationship stories. Sad stories. Happy stories. Funny stories. Dumb stories. This book is a collection of stories that David loves telling. And it's his way of sharing some of the lessons these stories have taught him. So why is his name upside down? Because it gets noticed, it's memorable and people talk about it. At least that's what he tells people. It certainly makes a good story.

Author Event: Mary Kratt - Watch Where You Walk
Park Road Books, Thursday, April 9 at 7pm
The masterful and delicate way Mary Kratt guides a reader through the many worlds that come to bloom in her poems takes your breath. These poems pulse with people, their loves and losses, dreams and failures, joys, pleasures, hardscrabble work, all told in compelling narratives. Landscape and history are everywhere with description casting its spell, creating evocative moods and tone. The poet leads us down paths and roads that are both scarred and sacred to a fine wholeness in this collection which also has a subtle and robust humor in all the right places. If Kratt's father is her Waterman, she is his river-keeper—of lives, of words, of verses flowing smoothly and effortlessly as water finding its path to the sea. —Diana Pinckney, author of Green Daughters and Fishing With Tall Women

Author Event: Robin Moore - In Search Of Lost Frogs
Park Road Books, Thursday, April 16 at 7pm
The book's first half covers what frogs do for the health of the planet, the slippery slope of extinction, what is being done to monitor frog populations and find lost species, the Lazarus project (which aims to "revive" lost species) and the author's career-long resolve to find the Mesopotamia Beaked Toad.

The second half of the book is about the searches. Moore describes the struggles, victories and dangers as well as the science. He takes readers along as his team trudge through rainforest, climb mountains and paddle rivers in search of the lost frogs, some not seen for more than a century. He tells a story of perseverance, disappointment, rediscovery, resilience, but ultimately of hope, written with passion and illustrated with superb photographs. And a surprise ending: they found 15 lost frogs.

They include: In Ecuador, the Rio Pescado Stubfoot Toad, not seen since 1995 In Haiti, six rediscoveries, including the Ventriloquial Frog and Mozart's Frog, both lost for 20 years In India, the Dehradun Stream Frog, last seen (and only once) in 1985; the Elegant Tree Frog (1937); the Chalazodes Bubble Nest Frog (1874); the Anamalai Dot-Frog (1938) In Democratic Republic of Congo, the Omaniundu Reed Frog (1979) In Ivory Coast, the Mount Nimba Reed Frog (1967).

Naturalists, lovers of all things frog, schools and interested general readers will enjoy the stunning photographs, the science and the adventurous stories of discovery.

Author Event: David Baldacci - Memory Man
Park Road Books, Friday, April 24 at 7pm
Amos Decker's life changed forever--twice. The first time was on the gridiron. A big, towering athlete, he was the only person from his hometown of Burlington ever to go pro. But his career ended before it had a chance to begin. On his very first play, a violent helmet-to-helmet collision knocked him off the field for good, and left him with an improbable side effect--he can never forget anything. The second time was at home nearly two decades later. Now a police detective, Decker returned from a stakeout one evening and entered a nightmare--his wife, young daughter, and brother-in-law had been murdered.His family destroyed, their killer's identity as mysterious as the motive behind the crime, and unable to forget a single detail from that horrible night, Decker finds his world collapsing around him. He leaves the police force, loses his home, and winds up on the street, taking piecemeal jobs as a private investigator when he can. But over a year later, a man turns himself in to the police and confesses to the murders. At the same time a horrific event nearly brings Burlington to its knees, and Decker is called back in to help with this investigation. Decker also seizes his chance to learn what really happened to his family that night. To uncover the stunning truth, he must use his remarkable gifts and confront the burdens that go along with them. He must endure the memories he would much rather forget. And he may have to make the ultimate sacrifice. MEMORY MAN will stay with you long after the turn of the final page.

Wish You Well Foundation, the family foundation of David and Michelle Baldacci would like to incorporate its “Feeding Body & Mind” program into David’s appearance at our store on Friday, April 24, 2015. Please see details below. One in four people in a soup kitchen line is a child and there is no question that a strong association exists between malnutrition early in life and late manifestations of intellectual impairment. Obviously there is a clear correlation between poverty and low-literacy skills. While food can keep one alive, it cannot, by itself, lift one from poverty. However, increased literacy skills can; thus the Feeding Body & Mind program. Through Feeding Body & Mind new and gently used books are collected and distributed through Feeding America’s nationwide network of food banks. By providing books along side food, Feeding Body & Mind recognizes the direct and substantial link between nutrition and learning, and hopes to end the cycle of physical and intellectual undernourishment.

Here’s how it works: When you attend a book signing by your favorite author, look for our donation box – it’s a large white box with the Feeding Body & Mind logo Simply place your new or gently used book(s) in the box – that’s it! Once the Feeding Body & Mind donation box is full, it is shipped directly to your community food bank, ensuring that your generous donation stays within your community and benefits those families living closest to you.

Feeding Body & Mind provides a very easy, practical and significant way to make an impact on our nation’s children and families. To learn more about the program visitwww.feedingbodyandmind.com
