Author Reading: Brandy Liên Worrall: WHAT DOESN'T KILL US
Women & Children First, Wednesday, April 22 at 7:30pm
What Doesn’t Kill Us chronicles Brandy Liên Worrall’s journey with an aggressive, rare breast cancer at the age of thirty-one. The book reflects on the parallels between her experiences with cancer and her American father’s and Vietnamese mother’s trauma and survival during and after the Vietnam War. The book crosses borders, from rural, Amish-country Pennsylvania, where Brandy had grown up, to Vancouver, where she lived with her parents, husband, and two young children while enduring aggressive chemotherapy, radiation, and a double mastectomy. With surprising humor, the memoir also explores the enduring legacy of chemical warfare on three generations. Brandy Liên Worrall is the author of eight collections of poetry and has served as editor of numerous magazines, journals, and anthologies. She is the owner and editor of Rabbit Fool Press, a small family-owned-and-operated publishing company based in Vancouver. She holds an MA in Asian American Studies from UCLA and an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia

The Book Cellar, Thursday, April 23 at 6:30pm
Haki Madhubuti will introduce a reading by Kelly Norman Ellis, Calvin Forbes, Angela Jackson, and Roger Reeves. The event, which will include music and a reception, is co-presented by the independent biannual literary magazine Fifth Wednesday Journal. Kelly Norman Ellis, author of Tougaloo Blues and Offerings of Desire, is an associate professor of English and creative writing and chairperson of the Department of English, Foreign Languages and Literatures at Chicago State University.

She is a recipient of a Kentucky Foundation for Women writer’s grant and is a Cave Canem fellow and founding member of the Affrilachian Poets. Calvin Forbes teaches writing, literature, and jazz history at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Blues and jazz inform both the rhythm and content of his poetry. Forbes often uses ballads to tell stories of family or the ups and downs of romance but updates the tradition with surreal techniques, epigrammatic humor, and changing voices. His first book, Blue Monday, appeared in 1974, and his most recent, The Shine Poems, a book that resurrects the African American folk character, was issued in 2001. Angela Jackson was born in Greenville, Mississippi, and spent her early life there before moving with her family to Chicago’s South Side. She is the author of numerous collections of poetry, including Voo Doo/Love Magic (1974); Dark Legs and Silk Kisses (1993), which won the Carl Sandburg Award; and And All These Roads Be Luminous (1998), which was nominated for the National Book Award. Jackson’s honors include a Pushcart Prize, TriQuarterly’s Daniel Curley Award, the Poetry Society of America’s Shelley Memorial Award, the Academy of American Poets Prize, and the American Book Award for her novel Where I Must Go. She lives in Chicago. Roger Reeves, author of King Me, is an assistant professor of poetry at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He has received a 2014–15 Hodder Fellowship from Princeton University, a 2014 Pushcart Prize, a 2013 National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellowship, and a 2008 Ruth Lilly Fellowship. His poemsSS1 have appeared or are forthcoming in Best American Poetry, Poetry, Ploughshares, American Poetry Review, Boston Review, and Tin House, among other publications. King Me, his first book of poems, has been awarded the 2014 Larry Levis Reading Prize by the creative writing program at Virginia Commonwealth University and the PEN Oakland/Josephine Miles Literary Award.

A member of the Black Arts Movement, Haki Madhubuti has published more than 20 books of poetry, nonfiction, and critical essays. Madhubuti co-founded the quarterly Black Books Bulletin with Larry Neal, the Institute of Positive Education (1969), the New Concept School (1972), the Betty Shabazz International Charter School (Chicago, 1998), the International Literary Hall of Fame for Writers of African Descent, and the National Black Writers Retreat. Madhubuti's many honors include an American Book Award and the Kuumba Workshop Black Liberation Award.

Megan Kruse shares "Call Me Home"
The Book Cellar, Friday, April 24 at 7pm
The Book Cellar welcomes Megan Kruse as she shares her debut novel, Call Me Home.

Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) says of Megan and her book:

Megan Kruse is a young writer of raw and fearless talent and Call Me Home showcases all she can do. She writes here of harrowing lives — of a family bent and broken by violence, where each person is desperately trying to somehow grow toward light and liberation. In the process, she offers a most unlikely tale of hardness and hustle, of grace and loss, of painful love and tough breaks and the unimaginable paths we must all eventually take toward survival.

Join us for what's sure to be a wonderful literary evening!

Author Discussion & Signing with Judy Lee Burke
Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, Saturday, April 25 at 2pm
First time author & new member of The Mystery Writers of America, Judy Lee Burke will be visiting Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore to discuss her first novel, BLACKROCK set in Michigan and Ireland.

Laine Sullivan, a former NOVAS undercover operative and internationally known architectural designer, comes out of retirement to take an assignment in Ireland riddled with secrets-money laundering, murder, hidden agendas, and false identities. Laine takes action when she accepts Miles Bourke’s invitation to design a party room in his lighthouse tower on Blackrock Island. As she embarks on a promising new relationship with Bourke, her new boss, she struggles with her past-and her quest for the truth in a covert world of espionage. Burke’s “Blackrock” is a masterful work of psychological intricacy bringing to life a modern heroine who is thwarted by people who are prepared to kill, and kill again. Readers will not forget a memorable character enmeshed in a world of power, greed, and passion. The unexpected complication echoes suspense in this gripping thriller.
