Brentwood- Karen Bender discusses and signs "Refund"
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Sunday, February 1 at 3pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes author Karen Bender to the store to discuss and sign her new collection of short stories, Refund, on Thursday, February 1st at 3pm.

In Refund, Bender creates an award-winning collection of stories that deeply explore the ways in which money and the estimation of value affect the lives of her characters. The stories are filled with swindlers, reality show creators, desperate artists, siblings, parents, all trying to answer the question: What is the real definition of worth? In "Theft," an eighty-year-old swindler boards a cruise ship to see if she can find something of true value: a human connection. In "Anything for Money," the creator of a reality show is thrown into the real world when his estranged granddaughter reenters his life in need of a new heart; and in the title story, young artist parents in downtown Manhattan escape the attack on 9/11 only to face a battle over their subletted apartment with a stranger who might have lost more than only her deposit.

Karen E. Bender is the author of the novels Like Normal People and A Town of Empty Rooms. Her fiction has appeared in numerous literary publications including, The New Yorker, and Granta. Her stories have been anthologized in Best American Short Stories, Best American Mystery Stories, New Stories from the South: The Year's Best, and have won two Pushcart prizes. She has taught creative writing at Antioch University Los Angeles, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and Tunghai University in Taiwan. She lives in North Carolina with her husband, novelist Robert Anthony Siegel, and their two children.

Rebecca Scherm discusses and signs Unbecoming
Vroman's Bookstore, Sunday, February 1 at 4pm
On the dirty outskirts of Paris, Grace restores bric-a-brac and mends teapots. She calls herself Julie, says she's from California, and slips back to a rented room at night. Regularly, she checks her hometown paper on the Internet. Home is Garland, Tennessee, and there, two young men have just been paroled. One she married and the other she's in love with. Both men were jailed for a crime that Grace planned. The heist went bad but not before she was on a plane to Prague with a stolen canvas in her bag. In Paris, a waiting game begins as Grace's web of deception and lies unravel and she becomes another woman entirely. This debut thriller about a daring art heist and a small-town girl's major transformation is sure to attract fans of Gillian Flynn and Donna Tartt. Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted.

Alexandra Fuller discusses and signs Leaving Before the Rains Come
Vroman's Bookstore, Monday, February 2 at 7pm
A child of the Rhodesian wars and a daughter of two deeply complicated parents, Alexandra Fuller is no stranger to pain. But the disintegration of Fuller's own marriage leaves her shattered. Looking to pick up the pieces of her life, she finally faces the tough questions about her past, about the American man she married, and about the family she left behind in Africa. Recalling her unusual courtship in Zambia—elephant attacks on the first date, sick with malaria on the wedding day—Fuller struggles to understand her younger self as she overcomes her current misfortunes. Fuller reveals how, after spending a lifetime fearfully waiting for someone to show up and save her, she discovered that, in the end, we all simply have to save ourselves. Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted.

Jan-Christopher Horak discusses and signs Saul Bass: Anatomy of Film Design
Vroman's Bookstore, Wednesday, February 4 at 7pm
Academy Award winning filmmaker Saul Bass (1920-1996) defined an innovative era in cinema. With title sequences such as Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo (1958) and Billy Wilder's The Seven Year Itch (1955), he introduced the idea that opening credits could tell a story and set the mood for the movie that followed. Bass's stylistic influence can be seen in popular Hollywood franchises from the Pink Panther to James Bond, as well as in more recent works such as television's Mad Men. The first book to examine the life and work of this fascinating figure, Saul Bass: Anatomy of Film Design explores the designer's revolutionary career and his lasting impact on the entertainment and advertising industries.

Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's.
