Milford - GAYLE LAURADUNN reads from her debut book of poetry.
Toadstool Bookshop - Milford, Sunday, March 8 at 1pm
Please join us for a reading and signing from visiting poet GAYLE LAURADUNN of Albuquerque, NM. Her debut book is titled Reaching For Air.

Reaching For Air tells the story of a childhood spent in a landscape full of beauty, hardship, and violence. In their restless yearning and relentless motion, these poems feel completely American. Intersperced with the voice of the child is that of an adult woman, as both an extension of the child and as a counterpoint to the child's experience. Each poem stands alone, yet is a piece of the whole. This is poetic storytelling at its finest.

Gayle's poems have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies. She was co-organizer of the first National Women's Poetry Festival held in 1974, and part of the collective that published Chomo-Uri: A Women's Literary and Arts Journal. After earning a B.A. in English literature at the University of California Berkeley, she became a feature writer for a weekly newspaper, and over the next 20 years worked as a free-lance journalist. Her west Texas childhood is the atmosphere in which she first learned about human behavior and how people deal with difficult odds. She is currently working on a book-length narrative poem about a historical figure from 18th century Colonal America.

That Marie Curie is still the only person to have won the Nobel Prize in both physics and chemistry--and the only winner whose daughter also won a Nobel Prize?

Susan Levin, "Unlocked" (Andover)
Andover Bookstore, Friday, April 17 at 6:30pm
Unlocked begins with a vivid depiction of the author’s life with her autistic son, Ben. Feelings of isolation, self-hate, and even moments of hatred toward her own child in response to his behaviors, as well as the impact on her marriage and younger daughter, impel her to seek solutions for his condition. Through years of trial and error, Susan eventually discovers methods that bring about radical improvement in Ben.

The story, however, is not just about Ben, but also addresses Susan’s own spiritual and psychological struggles—and ultimate transformation—as she and her husband watch Ben go in and out of autism. Through years of intermittent progress and frustrating “steps backwards,” Susan learns that loving Ben means embracing him as he is, day by day, rather than waiting to love him fully “one day when he is cured.”

Told largely through anecdote, Unlocked is, by turns, heart-wrenching and joyful, hopeful and doubt-laden. As we follow young Ben’s exploits into a new social world, our own hearts break as he stumbles, but finally soar as he achieves his dream: genuine, caring, and reciprocal relationships with his peers.

In the end, Unlocked is a story about family, commitment, and the power of embracing, nonjudgmental love.

Laura Van Den Berg, "Find Me" (Andover)
Andover Bookstore, Friday, April 24 at 6:30pm
After two acclaimed story collections, Laura van den Berg brings us Find me, her highly anticipated debut novel—a gripping, imaginative, darkly funny tale of a young woman struggling to find her place in the world. Joy has no one. She spends her days working the graveyard shift at a grocery store outside Boston and nursing an addiction to cough syrup, an attempt to suppress her troubled past. But when a sickness that begins with memory loss and ends with death sweeps the country, Joy, for the first time in her life, seems to have an advantage: she is immune. When Joy’s immunity gains her admittance to a hospital in rural Kansas, she sees a chance to escape her bleak existence. There she submits to peculiar treatments and follows seemingly arbitrary rules, forming cautious bonds with other patients—including her roommate, whom she turns to in the night for comfort, and twin boys who are digging a secret tunnel. As winter descends, the hospital’s fragile order breaks down and Joy breaks free, embarking on a journey from Kansas to Florida, where she believes she can find her birth mother, the woman who abandoned her as a child. On the road in a devastated America, she encounters mysterious companions, cities turned strange, and one very eerie house. As Joy closes in on Florida, she must confront her own damaged memory and the secrets she has been keeping from herself.

Michaela MacColl presents "The Revelations of Louisa May"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, April 26 at 3pm
Join us on Sunday, April 26th at 3pm for an author presentation by Michaela MacColl, with her new novel for Young Adults.

Louisa May Alcott can't believe it—her mother is leaving for the summer to earn money for the family and Louisa is to be in charge of the household.

How will she find the time to write her stories, much less have any adventures of her own?

But before long, Louisa finds herself juggling her temperamental father, a mysterious murder, a fugitive seeking refuge along the Underground Railroad, and blossoming love.

Intertwining fact, fiction, and quotes from Little Women, Michaela MacColl has crafted another spunky heroine whose story will keep readers turning pages until the very end.

Michaela MacColl studied multidisciplinary history at Vassar College and Yale University, which turns out to be the perfect degree for writing historical fiction. She lives with her husband and two daughters in Connecticut. (TooFondOfBooks)

Moira Linehan & Mary Pinard, An evening of Poetry (Andover)
Andover Bookstore, Thursday, May 14 at 6:30pm
Moira Linehan, INCARNATE GRACE

In her collection Incarnate Grace, poet Moira Linehan explores, questions, and ultimately celebrates her attempt to live in the temple of the present.

After learning she has breast cancer, the poet struggles to live an examined life. Alienated and estranged from her own body, she turns her cancer into “these binoculars, / this new way of looking,” and uses it as a way of fixing herself firmly within the moment. As she travels Ireland and the Pacific Northwest, her busy mind moves from the knot in her breast to the knots in her knitting to the illuminated knots of The Book of Kells to the tossing, knotted surface of the sea; from the margins of her surgery—clean but not ideal—to the margins of illuminated manuscripts. She links the mundane to the mythic, intertwining connections between scripture and nature, storms and loss, winter and light, breast cancer and embroidery. As she returns to her home on a small pond in Massachusetts, she takes with her the fruits of her travels: the incarnate grace of the ordinary.

Mary Pinard, PORTAL

Opening into a story of familial loss and its environmental echo, Portal traces the salvaging of what remains. At the center of Mary Pinard's lyrical and formally expansive collection is a brother lost at sea in a freak tugboat accident, with the subsequent search for cause and comfort rippling throughout. Mary Pinard teaches poetry and literature at Babson College. Her poems have appeared in Prairie Schooner, Iowa Review, Georgia Review, Boston Review, and Salamander, among others. She has published essays on poets Lorine Niedecker and Alice Oswald. She was born and raised in Seattle, and now lives in Massachusetts.

Nancy Thayer, "The Guest Cottage" (Billerica)
Andover Bookstore, Friday, May 15 at 7pm
Sensible thirty-six-year-old Sophie Anderson has always known what to do. She knows her role in life: the supportive wife of a successful architect and calm, capable mother of two. But on a warm summer night, as the house grows quiet around her and her children fall asleep, she wonders what’s missing from her life. When her husband echoes that lonely question, announcing that he’s leaving her for another woman, Sophie realizes she has no idea what’s next. Impulsively renting a guest cottage on Nantucket from her friend Susie Swenson, Sophie rounds up her kids, Jonah and Lacey, and leaves Boston for a quiet family vacation, minus one. Also minus one is single parent Trevor Black, a software entrepreneur who has recently lost his wife. Trevor is the last person he would think could raise a little boy like Leo by himself at any age, much less at thirty. Leo’s a sweet, smart boy, but he grapples constantly with his mother’s death, growing more and more closed off. Hoping a quiet summer on the Nantucket coast will help him reconnect with Leo, Trevor rents a guest house on the beautiful island from his friend Ivan Swenson. But best-laid plans run awry when Sophie and Trevor realize they’ve accidentally rented the same house. Determined to make this a summer their kids will always remember, the two agree to share the Swensons’ Nantucket house. But as the summer unfolds and the families grow close, Sophie and Trevor must ask themselves if The Guest Cottage is all they want to share.
