Authors Discussion & Signing: Alex Buckholder & John Hogan
Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, Sunday, December 21 at 2pm
This will be the second visit from Alex Buckholder and John Hogan to Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore for their latest book Forgotten Fires Of Chicago: The Lake Michigan Inferno and a Century of Flame .

Description:

Chicago's war against cinder, flame and smoke did not end with the Great Fire of 1871. That conflagration was only one engagement in a ceaseless and often unrecognized conflict, fought in the most unlikely places. In 1909, fire ripped through the dynamite room of a staging facility one and a half miles off the Lake Michigan shoreline, transforming the pipe-laying operation into a raging inferno. During the World's Columbian Exposition, thousands of fairgoers watched in horror as twelve firefighters were trapped in a blazing ice warehouse. An operagoer left a smoking bomb under his seat at the Auditorium Theater in 1917, and the newly invented smoke ejector arrived too late to save firemen and laborers cut off in a sewer in 1931. Join John Hogan and Alex Burkholder for the history of these forgotten fires and the heroes who fight them.

Tim Johnston, "Descent"
The Book Cellar, Wednesday, January 14, 2015 at 7pm
Author Tim Johnston stops by The Book Cellar to read from his adult debut book, Descent. While the main plot point of Descent is ripped from the headlines—the mysterious disappearance of a teenage girl out for a morning run—the telling of the story, particularly how the girl’s disappearance affects each family member, is rendered with exquisite psychological depth and in crystalline prose. And the portrait of each of these family member’s trials, as well as the mystery of what happened to Caitlin, the missing girl, is matched by a stunning setting: the Rocky Mountains, which are as menacing as they are awe-inspiring. Tim Johnston is the author of the story collection Irish Girl and the novel Never So Green. Published in 2009, the stories of Irish Girl won an O. Henry Prize, the New Letters Award for Writers, and the Gival Press Short Story Award, while the collection itself won the 2009 Katherine Anne Porter Prize in Short Fiction. He holds degrees from the University of Iowa and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. In 2011-12 he was the Jenny McKean Moore Writer-in-Washington Fellow at The George Washington University, and he currently teaches in the Creative Writing Program at the University of Memphis.
