Alexai Galaviz-Budziszewski In Conversation with Adam Levin
The Book Cellar is very excited to host Alexai Galaviz-Budziszewski, in conversation with Adam Levin (The Instructions, Hot Pink). Alexai will also read from his new book, Painted Cities, published by McSweeney's! To those outside it, Pilsen is a vast barrio on the south side of Chicago. To Alexai Galaviz-Budziszewski, it is a world of violence and decay and beauty, of nuance and pure chance. It is a place where the smell of cooking frijoles is washed away by that of dead fish in the river, where vendettas are a daily routine, and where a fifteen-year-old son of immigrants might hold the ability to bring people back from the dead. Simultaneously tough and tender, PAINTED CITIES marks the debut of a writer poised to represent his city's literature for decades to come. Alexai Galaviz-Budziszewski grew up in the Pilsen neighborhood on the south side of Chicago. He has taught in the Chicago public school system and is currently a high school counselor for students with disabilities. In his spare time he builds and repairs motorcycles.

Joanne Fluke, "Blackberry Pie Murder"
Readers keep coming back for another helping of New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Joanne Fluke
’s cozy mysteries, featuring Minnesota bake shop owner Hannah Swensen and her delicious original recipes. In March 2014, Fluke and Hannah return with Blackberry Pie Murder
, a hardcover caper with over 22 recipes interspersed throughout, including Tio Tito’s Sublime Lime Bars, Treasure Chest Cookies, Elsa’s Buttermilk Pie, Caramallow Bar Cookies and, of course, Fresh Blackberry Pie. Joanne Fluke never fails to cook up culinary mysteries that are just as famous for their scrumptious excess of calories as for their eccentric characters and unexpected endings. In Blackberry Pie Murder, the series’ sleuth suddenly finds herself going from baking cookie bars to behind prison bars after she accidentally hits a man with her cookie truck while driving down a winding country road. Hannah is wracked with guilt, until Doc Knight’s autopsy reveals the victim -more- was dead before Hannah even hit him, his shirt covered in stains that could come from one thing: Blackberry Pie. Now Hannah’s on the trail of a pie baker with a penchant for murder. And it’s going to take more than sugar and spice to catch this killer… Fluke’s Cherry Cheesecake Murder marked her debut onto The New York Times bestseller list in March 2006, and she followed up that success again a year later in March 2007 with the New York Times bestseller, Key Lime Pie Murder. Most recently, her 2013 hardcover, Red Velvet Cupcake Murder hit the list at #6.

**OFFSITE** Ben Tanzer Release Party for "Lost in Space" @ Public Hotel
Book Cellar favorite Ben Tanzer has written another book! This time, we're celebrating the release of essay collection, Lost in Space, at Public Hotel (1301 North State Parkway). It's a pretty snazzy venue.
Joining Ben for a reading are authors Christine Sneed, Megan Stielstra, Patrick Wensink, and more to be announced!
Lost in Space is a sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always lively essay collection about fathers and sons, and their relationship to not only one another, but pop culture, death, and sex—because sex sells, even if you're otherwise focused on parenting and the generation spanning cultural impact of Star Wars. The essays in Lost in Space are focused on an array of child-rearing topics including sleep, discipline, first haircuts, deceased parents/grandparents and illness, and the inherent challenges and humor that coincide with, and are intrinsically tied-into, these stages of life. The essays also recognize the ongoing presence of the author's dead father in his life even as he seeks to parent without his father's guidance or advice.

**OFFSITE** Carmel Harrington @ Sulzer Library
Bestselling Irish author Carmel Harrington makes a trip across the pond to share her first novel, Beyond Grace's Rainbow, with American readers.
The book tells the story of Grace, a single mother recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. Her only hope for survival is to receive a bone marrow transplant from a compatible family member. One would think this simple enough to bring about, but there's a caveat: Grace was adopted. With the help of a loyal group of friends, Grace journeys from one side of Ireland to the next, uncovering decades old deceits and revisiting forgotten heartbreaks, in search of her biological family and a donor to save her life.
