John Warley, A Southern Girl, & James Magruder, Let Me See It
Porter Square Books, Tuesday, July 22 at 7pm
"John Warley's marvelous novel A Southern Girl is the best book I've ever read about Charleston's mysterious and glittering high society. Its affirmation of the enduring power of parental love vying against that enigmatic realm is reverential and stunningly original, as stylish as a novel by John Irving and as tightly written as one by John Grisham. I wish I'd written this book." — Pat Conroy

"John Warley's novel A Southern Girl takes us on a fascinating and powerful emotional journey that proves itself to be a richly rewarding story of life and family. It's simply unforgettable. Congratulations, Mr. Warley!" — Dorothea Benton Frank

Set against the exquisite, historical backdrop of Charleston's insular South of Broad neighborhood, A Southern Girl is a tale of international adoption and of families lost, then found anew through revelations, courage, and the perseverance of a love without bounds. With two biological sons and a promising career, Coleman Carter seems set to fulfill his promise as a resourceful trial lawyer, devoted husband, and dutiful father until his wife, Elizabeth, champions their adoption of a Korean orphan. This seemingly altruistic mission estranges Coleman's conservative parents and demands that he now embrace the unknown as fully as he has always entrenched himself in the familiar.

James Magruder's stories have appeared in The Gettysburg Review, New England Review, Subtropics, Bloom, The Normal School, the anthologies Boy Crazy and New Stories from the Midwest, and elsewhere. His début novel, Sugarless, (University of Wisconsin Press, 2009) was a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award, and shortlisted for the 2010 William Saroyan International Writing Prize and the VCU Cabell First Novelists Award.

Publishers Weekly gave his new collection, Let Me See It, a starred review, calling it "a perfect, acrid portrait of theater life."

Laurie Faria Stolarz, "Welcome to the Dark House" (Marblehead)
Spirit of '76 Bookstore, Wednesday, July 23 at 6pm
What's your worst nightmare?

For Ivy Jensen, it's the eyes of a killer that haunt her nights. For Parker Bradley, it's bloodthirsty sea serpents that slither in his dreams.

And for seven essay contestants, it's their worst nightmares that win them an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at director Justin Blake's latest, confidential project. Ivy doesn't even like scary movies, but she's ready to face her real-world fears. Parker's sympathetic words and perfect smile help keep her spirits up. . . at least for now.

Not everyone is so charming, though. Horror-film fanatic Garth Vader wants to stir up trouble. It's bad enough he has to stay in the middle of nowhere with this group-the girl who locks herself in her room; the know-it-all roommate; "Mister Sensitive"; and the one who's too cheery for her own good. Someone has to make things interesting.

Except, things are already a little weird. The hostess is a serial-killer look-alike, the dream-stealing Nightmare Elf is lurking about, and the seventh member of the group is missing.

Patricia Nolan-Brown, Idea to Invention
Porter Square Books, Wednesday, July 23 at 7pm
You don't have to be a mechanical genius to be an inventor. Anyone can invent -- a parent wrestling with a baby sling . . . a coach frustrated with slick-soled running shoes . . . an office worker determined to keep the computer cords untangled. Inventing is simply finding clever solutions to everyday challenges. Author and inventor Patricia Nolan-Brown has turned common annoyances into ingenious and money-making products. She shares the tricks of her trade in Idea to Invention, a practical guide that helps ordinary people look at their world with the eyes of an inventor.

Patricia Nolan-Brown, inventor of the original Rear-Facing Carseat Mirror (selling worldwide) has been inventing and marketing problem-solving products for over 20 years. Patricia has extensive experience in all stages required to turn an idea into a successful product, including licensing. She holds 5 patents and several trademarks.

July 23rd at 7pm, Kathleen Downey presents "Legendary Locals of Newburyport"
Jabberwocky Bookshop, Wednesday, July 23 at 7pm
Newburyport resident Kathleen M. Downey will discuss and sign copies of her new book, Legendary Locals of Newburyport. Downey’s tome of townie lore is the most recent book in Arcadia Publishing’s Legendary Locals series (this spring saw the release of Amesbury’s). This lively, engaging book offers lovely portraits and simple but elegant capsule biographies of assorted notable residents of the past and present. It is also full of interesting facts and anecdotes about the history of our city, including a brief history of the mysteriously exclamatory “Yeat!”

The locals featured represent native sons and daughters as well as loyal transplants. There are chapters on “Public Servants,” “Business Owners,” “Athletes” and more. Among the well over a hundred profiles of both historic and contemporary men and women are entries for William Lloyd Garrison, Anna Jacques, and self-styled “Lord” Timothy Dexter. The incomparable Dexter’s creatively spelled and unpunctuated tracts garnered the bemused admiration of Oliver Wendell Holmes, who wrote, “I am afraid that Mr. Emerson and Mr. Whitman must yield claim of declaring American literary independence to Lord Timothy Dexter.” Of Downey’s contemporary entries, the passages devoted to 1st Lt. Derek Hines, who gave his life in 2005 while serving his country in Afghanistan, stand out as a heartfelt tribute to a man and his beliefs.

In two chapters, Downey represents Newburyport’s contemporary arts community with many familiar and beloved faces, including Alan Bull, Anna Smulowitz and Fontaine Dubus (who owns the Dance Place, Jabberwocky’s neighbor in the Tannery!). Famous authors such as J.P. Marquand and Rhina Espaillat receive plenty of space, and Nicole Beckwith, Ariele Ebacher and others serve as representatives of a multi-talented younger generation. Even Newburyport’s notable animals get their due, with Mickey, the feral cat mascot for the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society, and Atticus M. Finch, the miniature schnauzer who graciously shares his profile with his hiking companion, former muckraker and memoirist Tom Ryan. (It should be noted here that there is also an entry for Sue Little, the owner of Jabberwocky Bookshop and host of this event!)

Kathleen M. Downey is the former features editor for Newburyport Today. She moved to Newburyport in 1992, drawn to the city’s charming downtown, the quietude of Plum Island’s Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, the stately woods of Maudslay State Park and, of course, the city’s colorful citizens—many of whom made it into this volume.

Livia Blackburne, Midnight Thief
Porter Square Books, Thursday, July 24 at 7pm
Celebrate the launch of a new YA fantasy series from debut author Livia Blackburne!

Growing up on Forge’s streets has taught Kyra how to stretch a coin. And when that’s not enough, her uncanny ability to scale walls and bypass guards helps her take what she needs. But when the leader of the Assassins Guild offers Kyra a lucrative job, she hesitates. She knows how to get by on her own, and she’s not sure she wants to play by his rules. But he’s persistent—and darkly attractive—and Kyra can’t quite resist his pull.

Tristam of Brancel is a young Palace knight on a mission. After his best friend is brutally murdered by Demon Riders, a clan of vicious warriors who ride bloodthirsty wildcats, Tristam vows to take them down. But as his investigation deepens, he finds his efforts thwarted by a talented thief, one who sneaks past Palace defenses with uncanny ease.

When a fateful raid throws Kyra and Tristam together, the two enemies realize that their best chance at survival — and vengeance — might be to join forces. And as their loyalties are tested to the breaking point, they learn a startling secret about Kyra’s past that threatens to reshape both their lives. In her arresting debut novel, Livia Blackburne creates a captivating world where intrigue prowls around every corner — and danger is a way of life.

Livia Blackburne has a PhD in neuroscience from MIT, where she conducted research on the neural correlates of reading. She still blogs on the intersection of writing and brain science. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband. This is her debut novel.

Roger Roffman, Marijuana Nation
Porter Square Books, Friday, July 25 at 7pm
"When it comes to the war on marijuana, it’s easy to be passionately pro or con. Roger Roffman goes much deeper. For 40 years he’s been passionate about actually understanding America’s fascinating and painful relationship with this drug and what policy is best for our society when it comes to pot. In Marijuana Nation, Roger shares a unique perspective from the trenches of Vietnam to the halls of academia to the eventual legalization of pot in two states. The story he tells is a page-turner for anyone curious about the social and historical context of America’s war on pot." – Rick Steves

Roger Roffman first discovered marijuana while serving as a US Army officer in Vietnam. From these seemingly innocuous beginnings, Roffman has been fascinated by marijuana, as a researcher, scholar, therapist, activist, and user. Ever since America's youth first marched in opposition to the war in Vietnam, pot's popularity has periodically ebbed and surged. Calls for greater, fewer, or no marijuana penalties also have swung on their own pendulum. From lobbying in Washington, to talking to doctors and nurses in oncology wards, and watching his brother struggle with addiction, Roffman has experienced the layered and complex relationship Americans have with marijuana first-hand.

Brigid Pasulka in Conversation with Julia Glass
Porter Square Books, Monday, July 28 at 7pm
This is a wondrous novel that radiates with poignant, witty insights on love, loss, loyalty, and sacrifice. Pasulka's sharp, engaging prose transports readers to a seaside Italian village and immerses them in community gossip, family dramas, and personal discoveries spurred by an obsession with soccer. It is a delightfully consuming story that will leave readers satiated and smiling. -- Anderson McKean, Page & Palette, Fairhope, AL

"How in the world did I just lose my heart to the entire village of San Benedetto, to its butchers and playboys and slackers and, most of all, its large population of swaggering elderly (mea culpa) soccer fans? Or maybe the question is this: How can a story about unbearable grief be so funny, so bawdy, so vibrant with the earthy joys of ordinary life? To that one, I know the answer: when it is told by someone with the uncommon wit of the fearless, tender, wise Brigid Pasulka. The Sun and Other Stars is, as its title promises, a wondrous and radiant novel." -- Julia Glass

Brigid Pasulka spent the summer of 1998 as an au pair for a family in Alassio, Italy, where she was first introduced to small town Riviera life, the Italian obsession with soccer, and the butcher shop that features in her second novel, The Sun and Other Stars. Her debut novel, A Long, Long Time Ago and Essentially True, won the 2010 Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award and was a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection. Pasulka currently lives in Chicago with her husband and runs the writing center at a public high school. Visit her website at BrigidPasulka.com.

Julia Glass is the author of Three Junes, winner of the 2002 National Book Award for Fiction; The Whole World Over; I See You Everywhere, winner of the 2009 Binghamton University John Gardner Book Award; and The Widower’s Tale. Her essays have been widely anthologized. A recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Glass also teaches fiction writing, most frequently at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. She lives with her family in Marblehead, Massachusetts.

Rebecca Gordon, Mainstreaming Torture
Porter Square Books, Tuesday, July 29 at 7pm
The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 reopened what many people in America had long assumed was a settled ethical question: Is torture ever morally permissible? Within days, some began to suggest that, in these new circumstances, the new answer was "yes." Rebecca Gordon argues that September 11 did not, as some have said, "change everything," and that institutionalized state torture remains as wrong today as it was on the day before those terrible attacks. Furthermore, U.S. practices during the "war on terror" are rooted in a history that began long before September 11, a history that includes both support for torture regimes abroad and the use of torture in American jails and prisons.

Rebecca Gordon received her B.A. from Reed College and her M.Div. and Ph.D. in Ethics and Social Theory from Graduate Theological Union. She teaches in the Philosophy department at the University of San Francisco and for the university’s Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good. Previous publications include Letters From Nicaragua and Cruel and Usual: How Welfare "Reform" Punishes Poor People .

Nell Bernstein, Burning Down the House
Porter Square Books, Friday, August 1 at 7pm
"Meticulously reported and sensitively written, Bernstein’s book draws upon a decade of research and astounding personal interviews. Rather than abstracting the issue, she lets her child narrators lead readers through each stage of the criminal justice system..."—Salon.com

One in three American children will be arrested by the time they are twenty-three, and many will spend time locked inside horrific detention centers that defy everything we know about how to rehabilitate young offenders. In a clear-eyed indictment of the juvenile justice system run amok, award-winning journalist Nell Bernstein shows that there is no right way to lock up a child. The very act of isolation denies delinquent children the thing that is most essential to their growth and rehabilitation: positive relationships with caring adults.

Bernstein introduces us to youth across the nation who have suffered violence and psychological torture at the hands of the state. She presents these youths all as fully realized people, not victims. As they describe in their own voices their fight to maintain their humanity and protect their individuality in environments that would deny both, these young people offer a hopeful alternative to the doomed effort to reform a system that should only be dismantled.

Nell Bernstein discusses her research on children in the justice system with Lisa Thurau, executive director of Strategies for Youth.

Nell Bernstein’s All Alone in the World was a Newsweek "Book of the Week." She is a former Soros Justice Media Fellow in New York, and winner of a White House Champion of Change award. Her articles have appeared in Newsday, Salon, Mother Jones, and the Washington Post, among other publications. She lives outside of Berkeley, California.

John Dean, The Nixon Defense
Porter Square Books, Monday, August 4 at 6:30pm
Based on Nixon’s overlooked recordings, New York Times bestselling author John W. Dean connects the dots between what we’ve come to believe about Watergate and what actually happened.

Former White House Counsel John W. Dean, one of the last major surviving figures of Watergate, draws on his own transcripts of almost a thousand conversations, a wealth of Nixon’s secretly recorded information, and more than 150,000 pages of documents in the National Archives and the Nixon Library to provide the definitive answer to the question: What did President Nixon know and when did he know it?

John Dean was White House legal counsel to President Nixon for a thousand days. Dean also served as chief minority counsel for the House Judiciary Committee and as an associate deputy attorney general in the U.S. Department of Justice.

This event takes place at Cambridge Public Library.
