Author event: Yvette Araujo - Origin & Loathing
Park Road Books, Saturday, July 26 at 11pm
Zane watched as Morningstar's beauty transformed into The Red Beast. Eyes that once glowed with brilliance, turned black and hollow and devoid of the light. Morningstar disappeared and was immediately delivered on his knees before Him. Morningstar tried to stand but could not rise. In a language only known to the angels, Morningstar was told that the name Morningstar would never be spoken again, and would be forgotten by all. Morningstar, once an angel of amazing beauty, became a stone figure that fell to ash.

Seven, who live as humans unaware of their true identities, suffer shocking fates and are thrust into the battle between good and evil. The fate of mankind rests in their hands but they have forgotten their centuries of knowledge and skills. They resent the re-training they must endure and the responsibility for the fate of the world that they did not ask for.

Author event: Karon Luddy - Bewilderment of Boys
Park Road Books, Wednesday, August 6 at 7pm
A drought has besieged Red Clover, South Carolina and the heart of seventeen-year-old Karlene Bridges. Her big sister, Gloria Jean, is pregnant, and everyone carries on as if she were incubating the Light of this World--but Karlene feels hysterical at becoming an aunt at such a young age. Her best friend, Lucinda, is leaving for college soon. Billy Ray Jenkins, former heartthrob, joined the United States Navy six months ago, and Karlene has been incommunicado ever since. To soothe her jangled nerves, she has taken up songwriting--and she is terrible at it--truly terrible. And now, Spencer, her songwriting buddy, might get drafted and end up in Vietnam, sloshing around in rice paddies, which agonizes Karlene because she knows that peace of any kind is unobtainable on this whirling blue planet.

Bewilderment of Boys is the sequel to Karon Luddy's award-winning debut novel Spelldown, heralded by Publisher's Weekly as a resonant, applause-worthy work of fiction.Through the eyes of its sharp-witted, big-hearted protagonist, Luddy delivers a powerfully intimate story about a young woman who dives into the deep end of her own life and attempts to solve the riddle of Life itself with grace and aplomb.

Author event: Sarah Creech - Season of the Dragonflies
Park Road Books, Thursday, August 14 at 7pm
For generations, the Lenore women have manufactured a fragrance unlike any other. Hidden in the quiet rolling hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, their perfumery guards unique and mysterious ingredients. A secret known only to a select clientele of movie stars, politicians, artists, and CEOs, the Lenores' signature elixir is the key to success for the world's most powerful women.

Willow, the coolly elegant matriarch, is the brains behind the operation. Her gorgeous golden-haired daughter, Mya, is its heart. Like her foremothers, Mya can "read" scents and envision their power to influence events. But Willow's younger daughter, dark-haired, soulful Lucia, claims no magical touch; wanting no part of the family business, she has left the mountains to make her own way in New York City.

When a divorce leaves Lucia at loose ends, she returns to the Blue Ridge Mountains for an uncomfortable family reunion and discovers trouble brewing. Willow is experiencing strange spells of forgetfulness. Mya is romancing a younger man and plotting to take the reins of the business. A client is threatening blackmail. And most ominously, the strange, magical plants that provide the perfume's secret ingredient seem to be dying.

With the Lenore empire at stake, the sister who can save their lucrative scent stands to inherit when Willow steps down. Though Mya schemes, Lucia has suddenly begun to show signs of possessing her own special abilities. And her return to the mountains--heralded by a swarm of blue dragonflies--may be the answer they all need. Capturing the essence of sisterhood with the sweetness of flowers, Season of the dragonflies is a beguiling tale of practical magic, old secrets, and new love.

Author event: Jenny Milchman - Ruin Falls
Park Road Books, Tuesday, August 19 at 7pm
Liz Daniels has every reason to be happy about setting off on a rare family vacation, leaving their remote home in the Adirondack Mountains behind for a while. Instead, she feels uneasy. Her children, eight-year-old Reid and six-year-old Ally, have only met their paternal grandparents a handful of times. But Liz's husband, Paul, has decided that, despite a strained relationship with his mother and father, they should visit the farm in western New York where he spent his childhood. On their way to the farm, the family stops at a hotel for the night. In the morning, when Liz checks on her sleeping children, all of her anxiety from the day before comes roaring back to life: Ally and Reid are nowhere to be found. Blind panic slides into ice-cold terror as the hours tick by without anyone finding a trace of her kids.

Author event/poetry reading: Grace Ocasio - Speed of our Lives
Park Road Books, Friday, August 22 at 6pm
Grace Ocasio’s poems embrace their subjects with a photographic clarity and a chic sense of style. Whether she is mining “the unmistakable depth” of Garbo’s face, or musing in wonder at Angela Davis’ hair, “more lavish/ than a Carmen Miranda headpiece,” she taps into the iconic power of her images in order to draw strength from them and offer it to us. These bracing poems celebrate everything from nature to history, to the family, to the famous – and in each, she discovers the music and meaning that lets them bloom in all their strangeness and surprise. —Elaine Equi

Grace Ocasio is a new and exciting voice in American poetry, and one that deserves a wide and appreciative audience. In this collection from BlazeVOX we are treated to a view of just how wide-ranging and powerful Ocasio’s work is. —Jesse Glass

These are wonderously wrought and craftwise poems!—but “crafty” too. Grace Ocasio’s new collection, THE SPEED OF OUR LIVES, is cleverly disguised in the formal and biographical. Within, you’ll hear Holiday’s voice, Garland’s, but, most of all, listen for Grace Ocasio’s marked song of rugged spoken-out-ness. I warn you: these are smart poems, but the facts ain’t always the truth, so watch out for this poet’s storied, brave, slant-light. —Kate Knapp Johnson

Author event: Ace Atkins - The Forsaken
Park Road Books, Wednesday, August 27 at 7pm
The extraordinary new novel in "New York Times"-bestselling author Ace Atkins' acclaimed series about the real Deep South--"a joy ride into the heart of darkness" ("The Washington Post").

Thirty-six years ago, a nameless black man wandered into Jericho, Mississippi, with nothing but the clothes on his back and a pair of paratrooper boots. Less than two days later, he was accused of rape and murder, hunted down by a self-appointed posse, and lynched.

Now evidence has surfaced of his innocence, and county sheriff Quinn Colson sets out not only to identify the stranger's remains, but to charge those responsible for the lynching. As he starts to uncover old lies and dirty secrets, though, he runs up against fierce opposition from those with the most to lose--and they can play dirty themselves. Soon Colson will find himself accused of terrible crimes, and the worst part is, the accusations just might stick. As the two investigations come to a head, it is anybody's guess who will prevail--or even come out of it alive.

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.
