Author Luncheon with Julia Keller at Aspen Drive Library

Julia Keller, author of Summer of the Dead

(Minotaur Books $25.99, due August 26)

Thursday August 28 at 12:00 p.m.

Register online at Aspen Drive Library

An optional lunch from the Picnic Basket can be ordered for $6.00 and must be paid for by Tuesday, August 26 at Cook Park Library or Aspen Drive Library.

Julia was born and raised in Huntington, West Virginia. She is an essayist for The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer on PBS. In 2005, she won the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing. She lives in a high-rise in Chicago and a stone cottage on a lake in rural Ohio.

High summer in Acker's Gap, West Virginia--but no one's enjoying the rugged natural landscape. Not while a killer stalks the small town and its hard-luck inhabitants. County prosecutor Bell Elkins and Sheriff Nick Fogelsong are stymied by a murderer who seems to come and go like smoke on the mountain. At the same time, Bell must deal with the return from prison of her sister, Shirley--who, like Bell, carries the indelible scars of a savage past. In "Summer of the Dead," the third Julia Keller mystery chronicling the journey of Bell Elkins and her return to her Appalachian hometown, we also meet Lindy Crabtree--a coal miner's daughter with dark secrets of her own, secrets that threaten to explode into even more violence. Acker's Gap is a place of loveliness and brutality, of isolation and fierce attachments--a place where the dead rub shoulders with the living, and demand their due.

There will be a book signing following the program with books provided by Lake Forest Book Store.

Debut YA Novelist: Rachel Wilson with "Don't Touch"
The Book Cellar, Friday, September 5 at 7pm
We are thrilled to host Chicago novelist, Rachel Wilson, as she celebrates the release of her debut YA book, Don't Touch.

Don't Touch is the story of Caddie. Caddie has a history of magical thinking—of playing games in her head to cope with her surroundings—but it's never been this bad before. When her parents split up, Don't Touch becomes Caddie's mantra. Maybe if she keeps from touching another person's skin, Dad will come home. She knows it doesn't make sense, but her games have never been logical. Soon, despite Alabama's humidity, she's covering every inch of her skin and wearing evening gloves to school. And that's where things get tricky. Even though Caddie's the new girl, it's hard to pass off her compulsions as artistic quirks. Friends notice things. Her drama class is all about interacting with her scene partners, especially Peter, who's auditioning for the role of Hamlet. Caddie desperately wants to play Ophelia, but if she does, she'll have to touch Peter and kiss him. Part of Caddie would love nothing more than to kiss Peter—but the other part isn't sure she's brave enough to let herself fall. Rachel M. Wilson studied theater at Northwestern University and received her MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Originally from Alabama, Rachel currently writes, acts, and teaches in Chicago, IL. Don't Touch is her first novel.
