The telling room: A Tale of Love, Betrayal, Revenge, and the World's Greatest Piece of Cheese by Michael Paterniti

This meeting will take place in a private home. If you're interested in attending, please email sina.keplers@gmail.com.

While working in a deli owned by a larger-than-life foodie, a young Michael Paterniti encounters what was then considered the finest cheese in the world - Paramo de Guzman. Too poor at the time to buy a taste, Paterniti instead vows to one day meet this fascinating, magical cheese again. Years later, Paterniti, with family in tow, makes good on his vow by traveling to the rustic Spanish village where the cheese is produced.

Zavalita y el zambo Ambrosio conversan en La Catedral. Estamos en Peru, durante el ochenio dictatorial del general Manuel A. Odria. Unas cuantas cervezas y un rio de palabras en libertad para responder a la palabra amordazada por la dictadura.Los personajes, las historias que estos cuentan, los fragmentos que van encajando, conforman la descripcion minuciosa de un envilecimiento colectivo, el repaso de todos los caminos que hacen desembocar a un pueblo entero en la frustracion.

Amy Bloom

Thursday, August 7, 7:30 p.m.

Lucky us

“My father’s wife died. My mother said we should drive down to his place and see what might be in it for us.”

So begins this remarkable novel by Amy Bloom, whose critically acclaimed away was called “a literary triumph” (The New York Times). Lucky us is a brilliantly written, deeply moving, fantastically funny novel of love, heartbreak, and luck.

Disappointed by their families, Iris, the hopeful star and Eva the sidekick, journey through 1940s America in search of fame and fortune.

Lucky us indeed—another Amy Bloom book. And, if it’s possible, even more powerful and affecting than her last novel, Away. This is a poignant book that manages to be funny, an unflinching portrait that manages to be tender, a tough story that manages to also have jazz and grace. Bloom is a great writer who keeps stepping into new territory, entirely unafraid. She is one of America’s unique and most gifted literary voices.”—Colum McCann

"...At its core, this is a novel of resilience, with the war serving as both a life-changing event and no more than the background noise of an impoverished existence. Full of intriguing characters and lots of surprises…readers of literary fiction and 20th-century historical, as well as fans of wacky humor, will find it an excellent choice.” —*STARRED REVIEW* Library Journal

Amy Bloom is the author of away, a novel, and two collections of prize-winning stories: Come to Me and A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You. She is a psychotherapist and teaches creative writing at Yale, where she is a Fellow of Calhoun College.

GENE LUEN YANG at Books Inc. Mountain View
Books Inc. in Mountain View, Friday, August 8 at 7pm
Author and illustrator of American Born Chinese, the first graphic novel to be nominated for a National Book Award and the first to win the American Library Association’s Printz Award; winner of the Eisner Award for his collaborative project, The Eternal Smile; and creator of the popular Nickelodeon series, Avatar: The Last Airbender, the über talented Gene Luen Yang shares his latest gorgeous, funny comics adventure for teens, The Shadow Hero. About The Shadow Hero: In the comics boom of the 1940s, a legend was born: the Green Turtle. He solved crimes and fought injustice just like the other comics characters. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity... The Green Turtle was the first Asian American super hero. The comic had a short run before lapsing into obscurity, but the acclaimed author of "American Born Chinese," Gene Luen Yang, has finally revived this character in "Shadow Hero," a new graphic novel that creates an origin story for the Green Turtle. With artwork by Sonny Liew, this gorgeous, funny comics adventure for teens is a new spin on the long, rich tradition of American comics lore. Click here to watch the awesome animated trailer for The Shadow Hero! Click here to read Gene's interview with Shelf Awareness!

In today’s job market, landing a great employment opportunity can seem brutal. However, no matter what the current economy may indicate, the chance of becoming employed is well within your reach. That is, if you have a effective plan in motion. Now, seasoned senior executive, Bob Braham, draws from decades of experience in both the hiring and job hunting process to give you the roadmap that will lead to a highly desirable position.

No-nonsense and results-driven, this book will give you the information and inspiration you need to become the master of your own destiny and the architect of your own resume. It’s required reading for anyone who is committed to creating a gratifying career, one plum job at a time.

This workshop highlights one of the critical chapters of the book. "Networking to Uncover the Hidden Job Market" covers several aspects of how to network to get started and find terrific jobs that generally are not posted for public consumption. This eliminates most of the competition and positions the candidate in the best light. Topics include preparing a "tool kit' for networking, preparing a networking plan, and a script to show that anyone can have great networking discussions. It's a fun and highly interactive session which gives participants new confidence about their job search process.

Soul Rebel: An Intimate Portrait of Bob Marley

In 1976, while on assignment in Jamaica for Time magazine, David Burnett photographed Bob Marley for the first time, and Burnett became so entranced by Marley’s charisma that he continued to document the reggae king throughout his groundbreaking European “Exodus” tour. Burnett’s vision, coupled with Marley’s larger-than-life charisma, resulted in an amazing collection of images, only a handful of which appeared in the Time article. The other photos — more than 200 in all — appear for the first time in Soul Rebel.

This stunning visual biography offers a rare look at Marley’s personal life in Jamaica, as well as the exodus from his home country that culminated in his tragic death in 1981.

David Burnett launched his photographic career at Time Magazine in 1967. He covered the Vietnam War as a staff photographer for Life Magazine. In 1975, he co-founded Contact Press Images in New York. Traveling to more than 75 countries, Burnett has produced photographic essays for Time, Life, Fortune, The New Yorker, and The New York Times Sunday Magazine.
