PREMIER EVENT: Michael Shermer

Monday, February 2, 7:30 p.m.

The moral arc: How Science and Reason Lead Humanity Toward Truth, Justice, and Freedom Tickets are available at Kepler's and online at Brown Paper Tickets

In The moral arc, Shermer shows us how science and reason move humanity toward a more just world. This provocative and compelling book has been praised by Jared Diamond, Steven Pinker, and Lawrence M. Krauss as an important work of skepticism, science, and reason, both thrilling and fascinating, which will forever change your view of the history and destiny of humankind. This ambitious and thoroughly researched tome is a remarkably accessible work of scholarship that explains that the fabric of modern morality derives not from religion, but in large part from secular notions of rational empiricism.

The Age of Reason and the Enlightenment led theorists to apply scientific reasoning to the non-scientific disciplines of politics, economics, and moral philosophy. Instead of relying on the woodcuts of dissected bodies in old medical texts, physicians opened bodies themselves to see what was there; instead of divining truth through the authority of an ancient holy book or philosophical treatise, people began to explore the book of nature for themselves through travel and exploration; instead of the supernatural belief in the divine right of kings, people employed a natural belief in the right of democracy.

Learn how abstract reasoning, rationality, empiricism, skepticism--scientific ways of thinking--have profoundly changed the way we perceive morality and, indeed, move us ever closer to a more just world.

Dr. Michael Shermer is the Founding Publisher of Skeptic magazine, a monthly columnist for Scientific American, a regular contributor to Time.com, and Presidential Fellow at Chapman University. He is also the author of The Believing Brain: From Ghosts and Gods to Politics and Conspiracies; The Mind of the Market, on evolutionary economics, and Why Darwin Matters: Evolution and the Case Against Intelligent Design. He has been a college professor since 1979.

PREMIER EVENT: Marissa Meyer

Tuesday, February 3, 7:00 p.m.

Fairest Tickets are available at Kepler's and online at Brown Paper Tickets

You're cordially invited to join Marissa Meyer for a very special Lunar Ball to celebrate the release of Fairest: Levana’s Story, the prequel to her New York Times bestselling Lunar Chronicles (Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress).

We'll have a talk and booksigning with the author, light refreshments, a costume contest, activities, giveaways, and more!

Fans of The Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her "glamour" to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story — a story that has never been told... until now. Marissa Meyer spins yet another unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death. This book includes full-color art and an excerpt from Winter, the next book in The Lunar Chronicles series.

Sandip Roy in conversation with Richard Rodriguez

Wednesday, February 4, 7:30 p.m.

Don't Let Him Know

Roy’s mesmerizing debut explores the inner lives of a family of Indian immigrants who can never reveal their secrets. Booklist calls Don't Let Him Know “poignant, resonant…Told in 12 discrete chapters, each having the integrity of a short story, Roy’s is a quiet but piercing tale of immigrant domestic life…Roy’s is a warm, articulate voice speaking authentically about family influence on how we carry out our own lives.”

When Romola Mitra, a young Indian bride in the United States, stumbles upon a letter she was not meant to open, it changes her life. Decades later, her son, Amit, finds that letter among Romola’s possessions and thinks he has discovered a secret about her.

Traveling back and forth in time, crisscrossing between India and the United States, the stories follow Romola, her husband Avinash, and their son Amit, immigrants twice over, from childhood to adulthood to old age—through their struggles to bridge the chasms of geography, generation, and culture.

Sandip Roy was born in India, spent many years in San Francisco, and writes for mainstream and ethnic media outlets in both the U.S. and India, including regularly for The Huffington Post. He is the culture editor at Firstpost.com, a contributor to New American Media, and a commentator for Morning Edition on NPR. He has also been a radio host on KALW San Francisco.

Richard Rodriguez, the print and television journalist over many years, is the author of four collections of literary essays. His most recent, Darling: A Spiritual Autobiography, is concerned with “the desert religions” of the Middle East after September 11th. It ranges in its appraisal of religion from Jerusalem to Las Vegas, from Liberace to Mother Teresa.

Shutter

Micheline Helsing can see the auras of the undead in a prismatic spectrum. As one of the last descendants of the Van Helsing lineage, she has trained since childhood to destroy monsters both corporeal and spiritual: the corporeal undead go down by the bullet; the spiritual undead by the lens.

With an analog SLR camera as her best weapon, Micheline exorcises ghosts by capturing their spiritual energy on film. She's aided by her crew. When a routine ghost hunt goes awry, Micheline and the boys are infected with a curse known as a soulchain. As the ghostly chains spread through their bodies, Micheline learns that if she doesn't exorcise her entity in seven days or less, she and her friends will die.

Now pursued as a renegade agent by her monster-hunting father, she must track and destroy an entity more powerful than anything she's faced before - or die trying. Lock, stock, and lens, she’s in for one hell of a week.

Unwanteds 5: The Island of Shipwrecks A risky decision endangers both Artimé and Quill in book five of the New York Times bestselling Unwanteds series, which Kirkus Reviews called “The Hunger Games meets Harry Potter.” Alex and his friends from Artimé are stranded on a newly discovered island after barely surviving a storm that destroys their ship. And it turns out they’re not alone… Back in Quill, Aaron’s power base grows as he aligns himself with an unlikely ally. Together, the two enact a drastic, risky plan to finally conquer Artimé—a plan that could ultimately leave everyone in both Artimé and Quill in far more danger than Aaron realizes.

The Short History of Nearly Everything By Bill Bryson

In this book Bryson confronts his greatest challenge: to understand—and, if possible, answer—the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Taking as territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us.

Cien años de soledad by Gabriel García Márquez

Con estas palabras empieza una novela ya legendaria en los anales de la literatura universal, una de las aventuras literarias más fascinantes del siglo xx. Millones de ejemplares de Cien años de soledad leídos en todas las lenguas y el Premio Nobel de Literatura coronando una obra que se había abierto paso a “boca a boca” —como gusta decir el escritor— son la más palpable demostración de que la aventura fabulosa de la familia Buendía-Iguarán, con sus milagros, fantasías, obsesiones, tragedias, incestos, adulterios, rebeldías, descubrimientos y condenas, representaba al mismo tiempo el mito y la historia, la tragedia y el amor del mundo entero.

Michael Northrup kicks off a new epic Egyptian Adventure from the team that brought you The 39 Clues and Spirit Animals.

Tombquest# 1: Book of the Dead

Nothing can save Alex Sennefer's life. That's what all the doctors say, but his mother knows it's not true. She knows that the Lost Spells of the Egyptian Book of the Dead can crack open a door to the afterlife and pull her son back from the brink. But when she uses the spells, five evil ancients--the Death Walkers--are also brought back to life.

An ancient evil has been unleashed. Mummies are awakening. New York is overrun with scorpions. And worst of all for Alex, his mom and the Lost Spells have both disappeared. He and his best friend, Ren, will do anything to find his mom and save the world . . . even if that means going head-to-head with a Death Walker who has been plotting his revenge for 3,000 years.

Read the book, then continue the adventure online! Build an Egyptian tomb of your own, hide treasure and protect it with traps, then challenge your friends to play through!

Meet the author at Hicklebee's February 10 at 3:00 (presentation at 3:30)
