NYMBC Presents MAGGIE STIEFVATER at the Alameda Free Library
Books Inc. in Alameda, Wednesday, July 23 at 7:30pm
The Alameda Free Library and Not Your Mother's Book Club™ present Michael L. Printz-Honoree and #1 New York Times-bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater sharing book four in her Shiver series, Sinner.

Maggie’s new book, Sinner, is another in the Wolves of Mercy Falls universe, but is meant to be read as a stand-alone from the series. Following Cole St. Clair and Isabel Culpeper, this neon-pink, sun-kissed love story is impossibly hot. It seems to us at NYMBC that Maggie only gets better with each book she writes. Come kick it with her before she gets too fancy and famous to ever visit us again.

The Intel Trinity: How Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore, and Andy Grove Built the World’s Most Important Company

Computer History Museum, 1401 Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View

On a warm September morning in 1957 seven key employees of Shockley Transistor of Mountain View, California decided to quit their jobs and strike out on their own, marking the beginning of what would become Silicon Valley. These men would go on to form Fairchild Semiconductor and revolutionize the way we work and live.

Drawing on unprecedented access to the Intel archives and on interviews and oral histories from its earliest days through the present, Malone reveals how each member of the founding Intel trio brought different things at different times. Noyce was the charismatic leader and the most respected high-tech figure of his generation. Gordon Moore set the law that accelerated the pace of innovation—the biennial doubling of computer chip performance. Andy Grove was the greatest and most ferocious businessman of his generation. Together, these three achieved Intel’s historic success.

Novel Society: Adults Read Teen Lit~ July 24
Hicklebee's, Thursday, July 24 at 7pm
We'll be discussing Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass by Meg Medina, Thursday July 24 @ 7:00.

Winner of the 2014 Pura Belpré Author Award

In Meg Medina’s compelling new novel, a Latina teen is targeted by a bully at her new school — and must discover resources she never knew she had.

One morning before school, some girl tells Piddy Sanchez that Yaqui Delgado hates her and wants to kick her ass. Piddy doesn’t even know who Yaqui is, never mind what she’s done to piss her off. Word is that Yaqui thinks Piddy is stuck-up, shakes her stuff when she walks, and isn’t Latin enough with her white skin, good grades, and no accent. And Yaqui isn’t kidding around, so Piddy better watch her back. At first Piddy is more concerned with trying to find out more about the father she’s never met and how to balance honors courses with her weekend job at the neighborhood hair salon. But as the harassment escalates, avoiding Yaqui and her gang starts to take over Piddy’s life. Is there any way for Piddy to survive without closing herself off or running away? In an all-too-realistic novel, Meg Medina portrays a sympathetic heroine who is forced to decide who she really is.

The Gurkha's Daughter

A number one bestseller in India and a shortlisted nomination for the Dylan Thomas Prize, The Gurkha’s Daughter is a distinctive debut from a rising star in South Asian literature. This collection of stories captures the textures and sounds of the Nepalese diaspora through eight intimate, nuanced portraits, taking us from the hillside city of Darjeeling, India to a tucked away Nepalese restaurant in New York City.

Prajwal Parajuly, the son of an Indian father and a Nepalese mother, divides his time between New York and Oxford, England, but disappears to Gangtok, his hometown in the Indian Himalayas, at every opportunity.

This event is co-sponsored by

whose goal is to provide education and a family environment for underprivileged Nepali kids at a children's home in Kathmandu.

The Care and Management of Lies: A Novel of the Great War

The New York Times bestselling author of the Maisie Dobbs series turns her prodigious talents to this World War I standalone novel, a lyrical drama of love struggling to survive in a damaged, fractured world.

By July 1914, the ties between Kezia Marchant and Thea Brissenden, friends since girlhood, have become strained--by Thea's passionate embrace of women's suffrage, and by the imminent marriage of Kezia to Thea's brother, Tom, who runs the family farm. When Kezia and Tom wed just a month before war is declared between Britain and Germany, Thea's gift to Kezia is a book on household management--a veiled criticism of the bride's prosaic life to come.

Yet when Tom enlists to fight for his country and Thea is drawn reluctantly onto the battlefield, the farm becomes Kezia's responsibility. Each must find a way to endure the ensuing cataclysm and turmoil. As Tom marches to the front lines, and Kezia battles to keep her ordered life from unraveling, they hide their despair in letters and cards filled with stories woven to bring comfort. Even Tom's fellow soldiers in the trenches enter and find solace in the dream world of Kezia's mouth-watering, albeit imaginary meals. But will well-intended lies and self-deception be of use when they come face to face with the enemy?

"There is power in subtlety. This one is a stunner."--Martin Cruz Smith, author of Tatiana and Gorky Park
