Author Event - Remedies for Hunger with Anara Guard
Avid Reader, Saturday, January 31 at 7:30pm
This new collection of short stories by Anara Guard focuses on moments in life when something turns, a choice is made, a promise is kept or broken. With vivid and precise details, these quiet tales introduce you to characters whose inner lives are both troubled and eloquent. You smell the permeating odors in a rundown Chicago apartment building, touch the texture of a bear’s thick fur, feel your feet scraping against the coils of a hairy rope ladder in the bathtub. These twelve compressed observant tales provide a remedy to readers hungry for stories that will resonate long after the last page is turned.

“Anara Guard picks out secret jewels of the hardscrabble life where the domestic scene reveals the larger landscape. Her subject is the mystery of childhood, the certainty of death, and the shining light somewhere in between with all its startling beauty.”

Lisa Page, Acting Director of Creative Writing, George Washington University

Author Event-Finn Fancy Necromancy with Randy Henderson
Avid Reader, Saturday, February 21 at 7:30pm
Meet the Gramaraye family:

Mort runs the family Necromancy business with help from Pete, his not-so-little brother who believes he’s a werewolf.

Their sister is allergic to magic, they have a father who’s out of his mind, and their mother’s ghost will remind you to wipe your feet.

And Finn. Twenty-five years ago Finn Gramaraye was framed for the crime of dark necromancy and at the age of fifteen exiled to the Other Realms. As soon as he gets back things start going wrong – and he finds himself once more accused of a crime he isn’t guilty of. Now he has three days to prove he’s (mostly) innocent to the Arcane Enforcers. He’s got just his family to help, with Zeke, a former enforcer and fellow exile, and Dawn, his zany neighbor who doesn’t know magic is real.

Finn has to fend off witches, fight a sasquatch, haggle with gnomes, find a date for his brother, and figure out who in his family is lying to him. Faced with enemies who don’t respond to sarcasm and snark, Finn will have to draw on his talent for speaking to the dead – when all he really wants to do is catch up on twenty-five years of music and pop culture. And movies. He can’t wait to see Star Trek IV.

Debut author Randy Henderson creates a layer of improbable magic and hilarious family drama underneath the veneer of a quiet, charming small town in the American Northwest. Winner of the 2014 Golden Pen grand prize for Writers of the Future and writer in Penumbra, Realms of Fantasy, and the podcast Escape Pod, Henderson has spun a tale brimming with humor, horror, and dangerous dilemmas.

Author Event-The Uncallused Hand with Walker Abel
Avid Reader, Saturday, February 28 at 7:30pm
This is poetry kindled by weeks in wilderness. Its muse is nature, which encompasses both the wild beauty of earth and the mystery of self and its sometimes erotic, sometimes mystical, relationship with the other. The poems are lyrical, tonal, evocative–enamored in a sensual way of being, but also drawn at times toward the counterpart of non-being. The palpable world of natural detail is brought forth, yet the poems also echo with nuance, innuendo, archetype, and both meditative as well as enraptured levels of realization

Advance Praise

“I am confident that Walker Abel’s hands are as calloused as those of any master craftsman. His grip on the pen is gentle, yet powerful. Wanting, yet not demanding. Show up here and surrender to his touch. This is courtship.”

—Jamie K. Reaser, author of Wild Life

About the Author: Walker Abel lives in a remote home in the Yolla Bolly Mountains of northern California. As an undergraduate at University of California, Santa Cruz, in the mid-70’s, he participated in an environmental studies field program called Sierra Institute. Twelve years later, after completing a graduate program with ecopsychology pioneer Robert Greenway, he came back to teach for Sierra Institute, which he has done now for 26 years, while also taking on the role of director since 2003.
