Carrie Patel Signs in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Saturday, March 7 at 2pm
Debut cross-genre author Carrie Patel hones her writing skills in her job as a narrative designer for video games at Obsidian Entertainment. Publishers Weekly’s review of The Buried Life notes: “With Regency-era sensibilities and Agatha Christie’s flair for the subtle conundrum, Patel’s debut novel introduces readers to a subterranean city of the future, centuries after what is dubbed “The Catastrophe,” and beautifully manages the delicate balance between entertainment and social commentary… The subtly fantastical story is resplendent with surprisingly deep villains, political corruption, and a gripping whodunit feel.”

T. GERONIMO JOHNSON BOOKSIGNING (WELCOME TO BRAGGSVILLE: a novel)
Eso Won Books, Monday, March 9 at 7pm
From the PEN/Faulkner finalist and critically acclaimed author of Hold It 'Til It Hurts comes a dark and socially provocative Southern-fried comedy about four UC Berkeley students who stage a dramatic protest during a Civil War reenactment--a fierce, funny, tragic work from a bold new writer.

Welcome to Braggsville. The City that Love Built in the Heart of Georgia. Population 712

Born and raised in the heart of old Dixie, D'aron Davenport finds himself in unfamiliar territory his freshman year at UC Berkeley. Two thousand miles and a world away from his childhood, he is a small-town fish floundering in the depths of a large, hyper-liberal pond. Caught between the prosaic values of his rural hometown and the intellectualized multicultural cosmopolitanism of Berzerkeley, the nineteen-year-old white kid is uncertain about his place until one disastrous party brings him three idiosyncratic best friends: Louis, a "kung-fu comedian" from California; Candice, an earnest do-gooder claiming Native roots from Iowa; and Charlie, an introspective inner-city black teen from Chicago. They dub themselves the "4 Little Indians."

But everything changes in the group's alternative history class, when D'aron lets slip that his hometown hosts an annual Civil War reenactment, recently rebranded "Patriot Days." His announcement is met with righteous indignation, and inspires Candice to suggest a "performative intervention" to protest the reenactment. Armed with youthful self-importance, makeshift slave costumes, righteous zeal, and their own misguided ideas about the South, the 4 Little Indians descend on Braggsville. Their journey through backwoods churches, backroom politics, Waffle Houses, and drunken family barbecues is uproarious to start, but will have devastating consequences.

With the keen wit of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk and the deft argot of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, T. Geronimo Johnson has written an astonishing, razor-sharp satire. Using a panoply of styles and tones, from tragicomic to Southern Gothic, he skewers issues of class, race, intellectual and political chauvinism, Obamaism, social media, and much more. A literary coming-of-age novel for a new generation, written with tremendous social insight and a unique, generous heart, Welcome to Braggsville reminds us of the promise and perils of youthful exuberance, while painting an indelible portrait of contemporary America. Come early and enjoy the evening

Meet the Author: Mona Simpson
Crowell Public Library, Thursday, March 12 at 7pm
The Friends of Crowell Public Library’s Meet the Authors series continues with Mona Simpson whose powerful new novel, Casebook, is a witty, perceptive story of family life, part coming-of-age story and part detective yarn. The acclaimed and award-winning author of Anywhere But Here and My Hollywood, Simpson’s latest is about a young boy’s quest to uncover the mysteries of his unraveling family. What he discovers turns out to be what he least wants to know: the inner workings of his parents’ lives. And even then he can’t stop searching.

The boy’s amateur detective work starts innocently but quickly takes him to the far reaches of adult privacy as he acquires knowledge that will affect the family’s well-being, prosperity, and sanity. Casebook reveals an American family both coming apart at the seams and, simultaneously, reconstituting itself to sustain its members through their ultimate trial. Mona Simpson gives the reader a boy hero for our times whose story remains long after the novel is over.

Mona Simpson moved to Los Angeles as a young teenager and attended UC Berkeley, where she studied poetry. She worked as a journalist before moving to New York to attend Columbia's MFA program. During graduate school, she published her first short stories in Ploughshares, The Iowa Review and Mademoiselle. She stayed in New York and worked as an editor at The Paris Review for five years while finishing her first novel. Anywhere But Here. After that, she wrote The Lost Father, A Regular Guy and Off Keck Road.

Her work has been awarded the Whiting Prize, a Guggenheim, an NEA grant, a Hodder Fellowship from Princeton University, the Lila Wallace Readers Digest Prize, Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize, Pen Faulkner finalist, and most recently the Literature Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
