John Gierach -- "All Fishermen Are Liars"
Boulder Book Store, Wednesday, April 16 at 7:30pm
John Gierach will speak about and sign his new book, All Fishermen Are Liars, on Wednesday, April 16th at 7:30pm.

About the Book: "I have to go fishing; it's my job." John Gierach can say that and mean it. But fishing is only part of his job. The other part is writing about his fishing adventures. In All Fishermen Are Liars, Gierach travels across North America from the Pacific Northwest to the Canadian Maritimes to seek out quintessential fishing experiences. Gierach may occasionally lose a fish, but he never loses his passion for fishing or his sense of humor. All Fishermen Are Liars proves yet again that life's most valuable lessons—and some of its best experiences—can be found while fly-fishing.

This is a FREE event, open to everyone!

Mary Roach -- "Gulp"
Boulder Book Store, Tuesday, April 22 at 7:30pm
Mary Roach will speak about and sign her new book, Gulp, on Tuesday, April 22nd at 7:30pm.

About the Book: The alimentary canal is classic Mary Roach terrain: the questions explored in Gulp are as taboo, in their way, as the cadavers in Stiff and as surreal as the universe of zero gravity in Packing for Mars. Why is crunchy food so appealing? Why is it so hard to find words for flavors and smells? Why doesn't the stomach digest itself? How much can you eat before your stomach bursts? In Gulp we meet scientists who tackle the questions no one else thinks of or has the courage to ask. Like all of Roach’s books, Gulp is as much about human beings as it is about human bodies.

In Preparing to Die, Andrew Holecek presents a wide array of resources to help the reader address this unfinished business. Part 1 shows how to prepare one's mind and how to help others, before, during, and after death. Part 2 addresses the practical issues that surround death.

Dalton Conley -- "Parentology"
Boulder Book Store, Friday, April 25 at 7:30pm
Dalton Conley will speak about and sign his new book, Parentology, on Friday, April 25th at 7:30pm.

About the Book: All parenting is about experimenting. Now comes a book from a real scientist who has taken that experimentation further and deployed every last piece of data on his own kids so that the rest of us can benefit from the results. Emboldened by cutting-edge research, Dalton Conley makes a series of unorthodox parenting moves. Parentology hilariously reports the results of Conley's experiments as a father, demonstrating that, ultimately, what matters most is love and engagement. He teaches you everything you need to know about the latest literature on parenting.

Ann Brashares
Ann Brashares (3 Willows, Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood, GIRLS IN PANTS, GIRLS IN PANTS: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood, The Second Summer of the Sisterhood, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Sisterhood Everlasting (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants), The Here and Now, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Complete Collection, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants--3-book boxed set)

“I don’t really write with the idea of trying to teach any lessons. I want to tell a story as truthfully and engagingly as I can, and then let the chips fall where they may.”—Ann Brashares Ann Brashares grew up in Chevy Chase, Maryland, with three brothers and attended a Quaker school in the D.C. area called Sidwell Friends. She studied Philosophy at Barnard College, part of Columbia University in New York City. Expecting to continue studying philosophy in graduate school, Ann took a year off after college to work as an editor, hoping to save money for school. Loving her job, she never went to graduate school, and instead, remained in New York City and worked as an editor for many years. Ann made the transition from editor to full-time writer to write her first novel, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.ABOUT THE AUTHORAnn Brashares ON The Second Summer of the SisterhoodThe Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, your debut novel, received much critical praise, awards, and adoration from readers of all ages. What are your thoughts on its success and why do you think it resonated so heavily with readers? Its success has been a wonderful surprise each step of the way. From the outset I tried to keep my expectations very low. I know how hard it is to get a book published let alone have it succeed. I’ve read many excellent books that did not succeed commercially. Here I give credit to the publisher, Random House, and to the booksellers. They supported the book wholeheartedly. To the extent that it has resonated with readers, I am grateful for it. I sense that they have responded, more than anything else, to the unconditional love and loyalty that the Sisterhood represents. Has the success changed your writing process and expectations for the The Second Summer of the Sisterhood? I tried not to let the success change anything, but it kept creeping into my consciousness anyway. I worried that I wouldn’t live up to the hopes of my readers. I worried that I would forget how to write. I worried that I never knew how to write in the first place. I worried a lot and I wrote very little. When I finally forced myself back to my computer, I worried I had fallen out of touch with my characters. They felt to me like friends with whom I'd been intensely close, but hadn't seen in a long time. It's painful, in a way, to have to ask clunky, anonymous questions of people you used to know in an intimate, hour-by-hour way. Luckily, though, when I started to spend real time with Carmen and Bee and Tibby and Lena, I relaxed. I grew close to them again and enjoyed being with them so much, I forgot all the things I was worrying about. As for expectations, I still try to keep them in check. But I do allow myself to hope. I hope that readers who liked the first book will like the second one, too. Did you plan for the girls’ relationships with their mothers to play a stronger role in The Second Summer of the Sisterhood? Does your relationship with your own mother resemble any from the book?It didn’t start out that way exactly. As I was working out stories for each of the girls, I realized that most of them involved their mothers to some degree. So I just went with it. The mother-daughter bond is about as rich a subject as any I know. And I felt those relationships could give a center of gravity to a book that otherwise ran the risk of going in too many directions at once. My relationship with my mother doesn’t resemble any of the ones in the book precisely. There are some thematic similarities to Carmen, though, in that my parents were divorced and I had to come to terms with my mom having a romantic life of her own. As the mother of three young children, do you find that you relate more to the girls or their mothers? Even though I’m closer to the age of the mothers, I related more to the daughters. I think that’s because I wrote the book from the girls’ points of view. Although I tried really hard to imagine how the mothers would feel, I didn’t actually spend my days thinking their thoughts the way I do when I’ m writing in a character’s point of view. Also, my daughter is not a teenager yet. When she gets to be a teenager, then I’ll really understand what those mothers go through. Female friendship remains a central theme in the second book, do you have your own Sisterhood? In your writing, you seem to have a real understanding of the importance of those bonds, how have you come to know that?I have a few very good old friends from childhood and some more recent friends whom I love dearly. But truthfully, I think the Sisterhood is more fantasy than reality for me. I grew up in a house full of boys (wonderful boys, I should mention), and always dreamed about sisters. Do you have a sense of where the girls will be “next summer”? How do you see their growth continuing? Next summer will be the girls’ last before they split up to go to college. That’s going to be a big deal for them. I suspect Tibby is going to fall in love for the first time. I have a feeling Bridget might encounter Eric, the soccer coach, again. I have a few other plans up my sleeve, but I think I better keep them secret. What do you hope readers will take away from this second book? I don’t really write with the idea of trying to teach any lessons. I want to tell a story as truthfully and engagingly as I can, and then let the chips fall where they may. But I realize when I get to the end of the story, I care very much that my characters evolve and grow. In spite of their torments and their selfish impulses, I care that they are guided by a spirit of goodness. I want them to set a high standard for compassion and for friendship. Ann Brashares ON THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS How did you come up with the book’s unique central concept? Why traveling pants? The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was born in an unusual way. I was working as an editor at the time, chatting in the office with a colleague and friend who told me about a summer when she and some girl friends shared a pair of pants. She told me the pants had sadly been lost in Borneo. My mind was immediately filled with all sorts of wonderful possibilities. I think pants have unique qualities, especially in a woman’s life. Whatever bodily insecurities we have, we seem to take out on our pants. In high school, my friends would have their skinny pants and their fat pants. I like pants that allow women not to judge their bodies. The Traveling Pants are the kind of pants that always love you. They fit my characters’ bodies in a non-restrictive way. Describe your favorite pair of pants. What makes them your favorite? At the moment, my favorite pair of pants are bright red. They are cropped, slightly flared summer pants. Like a good friend, they are flexible, forgiving, and boost my confidence even on really off days. They are low maintenance pants–never requiring dry cleaning or even ironing. The waistline is zippered and definite, so it doesn't have that subtly defeated quality of elastic. And these pants manage to make me feel loved even through major body transitions (like having a baby!). This story should resonate with young women because sharing clothes is such an integral part of many female friendships. Did you have a clothes-sharing experience that helped to shape the book? The concept of The Pants is directly related to my experience with my wedding dress. Before I had chosen a wedding dress, I had a picture in my mind of what mine would look like. One day, my mom and I were touring wedding venues in the Washington, DC area where I grew up. Our guide showed us some wedding photographs, and one of them showed a bride wearing a dress just like the one I had imagined. The tour guide invited me to take the picture home, so I did, and I left it in my drawer. A few months later, the sister of a friend, a young woman named Hope, asked if I had picked my wedding dress. I hadn't. Hope’s recent wedding hadn’t worked out. She wasn't broken-hearted about the groom, but she was broken-hearted about her beautiful, amazing dress not being worn. She asked me if I would consider wearing it at my wedding. I didn't know Hope very well, so I politely declined a few times. Yet she was strangely insistent and later arrived at our friend's apartment with a huge box. Through the clear plastic front I could see that the dress inside was remarkably familiar. It was exactly the same as the dress in the photograph I had put in my drawer. I was ecstatic. I tried to give the dress back to Hope, after I had worn it in my wedding, but she didn't want it. So I decided, in the spirit of her generosity, that it was a fortuitous, serendipitous kind of dress, and needed to be shared some more. Since then, it has been worn beautifully by my older brother's wife, my middle brother's wife, and my lifelong best friend. These are probably the three women I am closest to in my life–my own sisterhood. I'm hoping it will be worn again. In fact, I am imagining that instead of the next bride throwing the bouquet at the end of the wedding, she can ball up my wedding dress and throw that. Much of the novel takes place in Baja and Greece. Did travel play an influential role in your childhood or teenage years? I love to travel and have taken a lot of trips, but have never actually been to either Baja or Greece. I did a lot of reading and imagining for those stories. They existed more in my imagination than any place else. I love islands. I loved that Oia, the town where Lena’s grandparents lived, was stuck in time and had this geological drama in the background. I grew up in Chevy Chase, Maryland, which was very Plain Jane. When I was a kid, I had a scrapbook that I used to write letters in from places I wished I could have gone. I would imagine being in Argentina and then write about all the incredible things I was seeing there. This book is almost like a continuation of those imaginary years. How old were you when you first fell in love? Who was he? Where were you? I first fell in love when I was 14 or 15, but it wasn’t immediate falling in love, it was a slow… slow fall. The person I fell in love with immediately was my husband. He is an artist and we met during my freshman year at Barnard. He sat across from me and drew a picture of me in the Columbia University Philosophy Reading Room. I hadn’t even noticed him, but a friend of mine saw what he was doing and told me. As soon as I went out with him, that was it. It was the first time I felt like I loved someone instantly. We’ve been together ever since. You’ve written about four very different girls. Are the characters in this book based on people you know or wish you had known? Oddly enough, they aren’t. They are composites of different people. I based Lena's story on the Greek myth of Artemis, the proud, boy-hating goddess of the hunt who, when spotted bathing by a suitor, turns the poor guy into a stag. I wanted my Lena to be less pleased with herself, though, and for her suitor to be more formidable. The story of Tibby and Bailey I based on the great, great movie It's a Wonderful Life. Bailey started out more like an angel than a person. I imagined her as an angel who revealed the cynical little prejudices and presumptions that I remember finding so seductive when I was fifteen. Carmen was the girl who said things I could never say and Bridget was the girl who did things I would never do. Who are you most like: Carmen, Tibby, Bridget or Lena? There’s a little bit of me in each of them. I would say I have more in common with Lena and Carmen than the other two. I have some life experience in common with Carmen, but we are considerably different too. I am a little like Carmen in that I sometimes feel as if I lose myself when I'm out of context. Also, I have dealt with issues of divorce and step families. For the protection of the innocent, though, I must say that my own family circumstances were completely different than hers. As for Lena, I guess I know what it is to feel awkward and inward sometimes, and romantically, to feel like a big chicken. Sometimes the girls provided me with an escape or a fantasy. Why did you choose Carmen to set up the story? Carmen struck me as the person who was most conscious–who recognized the importance of the girls’ friendship. She didn’t just live it, she knew it inside and out. I think she’s the most introspective of the four. What do you think are the most important aspects of female relationships? Loyalty and love. And I mean the kind of love that parents have–unconditional. So often, relationships become competitive or marked by pettiness or envy. For relationships to really transcend the negative stuff in life, they need to be without judgement. I wanted to create a story about a rare bunch of girls who didn't succumb to malice or jealousy and, instead, learned to grow alongside each other and in support of each other. I like the idea in this book, particularly for Carmen, that they are just going to love each other whole-heartedly, no matter what. Do you think those things change as people get older? I think that relationships do change over time. And that’s another reason why Carmen has the role she does. She has an awareness that the relationship is fragile and that so many other priorities, like boyfriends or distance, can get in the way. People’s lives inevitably go in different directions as they get older, when they stop having so much in common. They have to work not to let it go. What do you hope teens will take away from reading The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants? Honestly, I mostly hope they'll enjoy it and take pleasure away. I want it to be the kind of book that will stick with them a bit, the way books I liked when I was that age stuck with me. If there's a message, I guess it's just this: love yourself and your friends unconditionally. (added from Random House)… (more)

About the Book: Collapsing Consciously is a refreshing take on the perilous present and the grim prospects for our future.

An Afternoon with Local Authors
Boulder Book Store, Sunday, May 4 at 2pm
Join us for an afternoon of readings and discussion with local authors Karen Gallob, author of The Sumbally Fallacy, Fred Wolf, author of High Summits, Dawn Kairns, author of Final Years, and Jeff Bailey, author of The Yoga Mind, on Sunday, May 4th at *2:00pm*

Karen Gallob, author of The Sumbally Fallacy Everyone faces certain questions in life, such as where to work, whether to marry... what to kill.... For modern Neanderthal, resolving life's questions is particularly difficult. Hidden in plain sight, they have evolved the unique characteristics and cultural values necessary to protect their secret existence. To say that this four-volume adult novel is about Neanderthal would be like saying the Olympics are about running around in circles. The Sumbally Fallacy challenges as it entertains.

Fred Wolf, author of High Summits This is a rich and compelling history of mountaineering at your fingertips. High Summits is the result of over 30 years of research into the fascinating world of international mountaineering. An essential guide to mountaineering history, this year-by-year account spans all seven continents and dates from 450 B.C. though 2011.

Dawn Kairns, author of Final Years “I would recommend this book to anyone who has aging parents and/or anyone whose parents have died. Both my parents are now deceased. However, reading Dawn's book made me realize, even more than I intellectually knew, that some of the "crazy" things that happened when my parents were aging and/or dying were not unique to me, my parents, or my siblings.” ~Sally Schneider, attorney

Jeff Bailey, author of The Yoga Mind The Yoga Sutras teach the restraint of the modifications of the mind, while A Course in Miracles asks us to find and remove the barriers to truth. The Yoga Mind combines these two messages and shows you how to recognize and remove the limitations that block your mind’s power of true choice. Once you reveal this inner potential, your life will unfold in ways you never thought possible.

This is a FREE event, open to everyone!

Judith Orloff -- "The Ecstasy of Surrender"
Boulder Book Store, Tuesday, May 6 at 7:30pm
Judith Orloff will speak about and sign her new book, The Ecstasy of Surrender, on Tuesday, May 6th at 7:30pm.

About the Book: Are you longing for your life to be easier with more fun and less drama? Would you like to stop pushing, so you can relax? What if you could enjoy what you have instead of always wanting “more?” If you answer “yes” to these questions, prepare to experience The Ecstasy of Surrender. But isn’t surrender about giving up?

Morris Hoffman -- "The Punisher's Brain"
Boulder Book Store, Wednesday, May 7 at 7:30pm
Morris Hoffman will speak about and sign his new book, The Punisher's Brain, on Wednesday, May 7th at 7:30pm.

About the Book: Why do we punish, and why do we forgive? Are these learned behaviors, or is there something deeper going on? The Punisher’s Brain argues that there is indeed something deeper going on, and that our essential response to the killers, rapists, and other wrongdoers among us has been programmed into our brains by evolution. Using evidence and arguments from neuroscience and evolutionary psychology, Morris B. Hoffman traces the development of our innate drives to punish and to forgive throughout human history. He describes how these innate drives became codified into our present legal systems.

This is a FREE event, and the first 20 people to attend will get a $5 giftcard to use on the day of the event!

Kate Fagan -- "The Reappearing Act"
Boulder Book Store, Thursday, May 8 at 7:30pm
Kate Fagan will speak about and sign her new book, The Reappearing Act: Coming Out as Gay on a College Basketball Team Led by Born-Again Christians, on Thursday, May 8th at 7:30pm.

About the Book: It's hard enough coming out, but playing basketball for a nationally ranked school and trying to figure out your sexual identity in the closeted and paranoid world of big-time college sports—that's a challenge. Kate Fagan's love for basketball and for her religious teammates at the CU Boulder was tested by the gut-wrenching realization that she could no longer ignore her feelings of otherness. In The Reappearing Act, she brings the reader along for the ride as she accepts her new reality and takes the first steps toward embracing her true self.

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased in advance, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.

Red Green is the leader of Possum Lodge, Chapter 11, a northern Ontario eyesore. He is friendly, inventive, cheap and as honest as the day is long, which means he's the least honest on December 21. When he works on his handyman projects, Red is not stupid, he's impatient. So he uses duct tape to "buy time." Red Green is the star of The Red Green Show, which had first runs in Canada and the US from 1991 until 2006, making it the longest running live-action scripted comedy in the world. It continues to be enormously popular in reruns here and in the States. Red Green is the creation of Canadian comedian and writer Steve Smith. (added from Random House)… (more)
