Hannah Pittard, "Reunion" and Will Boast, "Epilogue"
The Book Cellar, Wednesday, October 22 at 7pm
Hannah Pittard, author of the acclaimed The Fates Will Find Their Way, visits the Book Cellar to celebrate her second novel, Reunion.

Sitting on a plane five minutes before her flight is set to take off, Kate Pulaski, failed screenwriter and newly failed wife with scarcely a hundred dollars to her name, learns that her estranged father has killed himself. It’s a voicemail, and as she listens to it a second time, more shocked than saddened by the news, she realizes her speakerphone is on and everyone around her has just heard the news as well. With her marriage falling apart, returning to her birthplace along with her many half-siblings and most of her father's five former wives – a striking reminder of his infidelity – is the last thing Kate wants to do. But the one certain thing in her life is Kate’s rock-solid relationship with her siblings, so when they ask her to join them in Atlanta, for a final farewell, she reluctantly agrees. Written with huge heart and bracing wit, Reunion takes place over the following four days, as family secrets are revealed, personal foibles are exposed, and Kate – an inveterate liar looking for a way to come clean – slowly begins to acknowledge the overwhelming similarities between herself and the man she never thought she'd claim as an influence, much less a father. As a thirty-something in a stalled career, wrestling with issues of debt, fidelity, honesty and just starting to come to terms with a future nothing like what she imagined, Kate is a relatable mess. As she reassesses what defines family, Kate starts to see how the certainty of knowing someone completely can blind you to the ways they change over time. Hannah Pittard's "engaging and vigorous" (Chicago Tribune) prose masterfully illuminates the problems that can divide modern families – and the ties that prove impossible to break. Joining Hannah is author Will Boast with his newly released memoir, Epilogue. What looked like the end turned out to be a new beginning. Having already lost his mother and only brother, twenty-four-year-old Will Boast finds himself absolutely alone when his father dies of alcoholism. Numbly sttling the matters of his father's estate, Boast is deep inside his gried when he stumbles upon documents revealing a secret his father had intended to keep: He'd had another family before Will's-a widfe and two sons in England. Moving between the Midwest and England, from scenes of his youth to the tentative discovery of his new family, Boast writes with visceral beauty about grief, memory, and his slow and tender journey toward forgiveness and healing. With the piercing gaze of a novelist, Boast transforms the pain and confusion of his family history into an achingly poignant portrait of resilience, revising the stories he’s inherited to refashion both his British past and his American present. Heartbreaking and luminous, Epilogue is the stunning account of a young man’s struggle to understand all that he has lost and found, and to forge a new life for himself along the way.

Kate Gray with special guest Cin Salach
Women & Children First, Wednesday, October 22 at 7:30pm
7:30 p.m.

Carry the Sky

Reading and Signing

In this debut novel set in 1983 at an elite Delaware boarding school, Kate Gray takes an unblinking look at bullying. Taylor Alta, the new rowing coach, arrives reeling from the death of the woman she loved. Physics teacher Jack Song, the only Asian American on campus, struggles with his personal code of honor when he gets too close to a student. These two young, lonely teachers narrate the story of a strange and brilliant thirteen-year-old boy who draws atomic mushroom clouds on his notebook, pings through the corridors like a pinball, and develops a crush on an older girl with secrets of her own. Named one of 11 Must-Read Books Set in High Schools by Bustle magazine, Carry the Sky sings a brave and honest anthem about what it means to be different. Cin Salach's

name is synonymous with the performance/slam poetry scene in Chicago and around the country. She is the author of the poetry collection Looking for a Soft Place to Land andWhen I Am Yes. Cin and Kate will be in conversation about their work and the process of beginning in poetry and moving onto other forms.

Poetry Reading ~ Michael Autrey & John Tipton ~ Seminary Co-op Bookstore
Seminary Co-op Bookstore, Thursday, October 23 at 6pm
Thursday, October 23, 6 PM Seminary Co-op Bookstore 5751 S. Woodlawn Avenue Phone: 773.752.4381 events@semcoop.com

What do we fear? Hard to say. Or, vaguely, disease, decrepitude, dissipation. Whatever it is, we work to keep fear in abeyance. Or we repress it, suffering the consequence of our anxiety to face it. What to do? Write something. In the elegant poems in Michael Autrey’s first full-length collection, our fear is a mysterious remnant disturbingly augured in fizzling dream fragments, birds’ predatory cunning, and the glorious extravagances of great art. And these limn for us what we fear most, “a future, in which we are scanned like a text.”

Michael Autrey was raised in Oregon, attended schools in France, Greece and his home town of Portland. He is a graduate of the University of Chicago. He has lived and worked in Prague, Geneva, New York, Washington D.C., rural Paraguay and south India. He resides in Chicago. -- John Tipton's Surfaces (2004) and his translation of Sophocles' Ajax (2008) were both published by Flood Edtions. A new collection, Paramnesia, and a translation of Aeschylus' Seven Against Thebes are forthcoming from Flood.

Seven Against Thebes: Three Choral Passages: An Excerpt

Whom did gods so admire at their altars? Who more honored in assemblies than this Oedipus, who freed Thebes of the Sphinx? That sound mind lost its bearing in deviant marriage, in wrong thoughts. Such appalling acts-- gouged his eyes with his own patricidal hand. To his children he fed malignance, the bitter tang of binding curse: Take in hand what you inherit. Fast Furies will finish it.

http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Seven+Against+Thebes%3A+Three+Choral+Passa...

John Tipton is the founder and director of Chicago Poetry Project. His poems have appeared in LVNG, Poetry New York, Nedge, and elsewhere. His “52 Surfaces” was published as a broadside in the LVNG Supplementals series, and Cello Entry Chapbooks published clause automata. His books Surfaces and Ajax are available from Flood Editions. He is the publisher of Verge Books and lives in Chicago.

David Bell, "Forgotten Girl"
The Book Cellar, Friday, October 24 at 7pm
David Bell drops by the Book Cellar to share his thriller The Forgotten Girl. Jason Danvers intensely remembers the important people who have left his life. His best friend from high school, Logan Shaw, left town and never came back after fighting with Jason on the eve of their graduation 27 years ago. And his sister, Hayden, lost contact with their family years later as her life spiraled out of control with alcohol addiction.

But now, in The Forgotten Girl, Hayden suddenly reappears on Jason’s doorstep, clean and sober but desperate. She explains she has important personal business to attend to and implores Jason and his wife to temporarily take in her teenage daughter, Sierra. But Hayden doesn’t come back for the girl in 48 hours, as promised, and everyone worries that she has relapsed. Eventually her car is located—full of bloodstains—causing Jason to fear the worst. Little does he know how bad things will get.

When a body is discovered in the woods, the mysteries of his sister’s life—and possible death—deepen. And one by one these events will shatter every expectation Jason has ever had about families, about the awful truths that bind them and the secrets that should be taken to the grave. David Bell has crafted another smart, suspenseful novel that proves why Suspense Magazine has called him “One of the brightest and best crime fiction writers of our time.”

David Nirenberg ~ Neighboring Faiths: Christianity, Islam, and Judaism in the Middle Ages and Today ~ Seminary Co-op Bookstore

Saturday, October 25, 3 PM Seminary Co-op Bookstore 5751 S. Woodlawn Avenue Phone: 773.752.4381 events@semcoop.com

Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are usually treated as autonomous religions, but in fact across the long course of their histories the three religions have developed in interaction with one another. In Neighboring Faiths, David Nirenberg examines how Muslims, Christians, and Jews lived with and thought about each other during the Middle Ages and what the medieval past can tell us about how they do so today.

There have been countless scripture-based studies of the three “religions of the book,” but Nirenberg goes beyond those to pay close attention to how the three religious neighbors loved, tolerated, massacred, and expelled each other—all in the name of God—in periods and places both long ago and far away. Nirenberg argues that the three religions need to be studied in terms of how each affected the development of the others over time, their proximity of religious and philosophical thought as well as their overlapping geographies, and how the three “neighbors” define—and continue to define—themselves and their place in terms of one another. From dangerous attractions leading to interfaith marriage; to interreligious conflicts leading to segregation, violence, and sometimes extermination; to strategies for bridging the interfaith gap through language, vocabulary, and poetry, Nirenberg aims to understand the intertwined past of the three faiths as a way for their heirs to produce the future—together.

David Nirenberg is the Deborah R. and Edgar D. Jannotta Professor of Medieval History and Social Thought and the Roman Family Director of the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, both at the University of Chicago. His most recent book is Anti-Judaism: The Western Tradition.

She has enjoyed feature performances of her poetry and comedic writings at Steppenwolf, Ravinia, Curious Theatre Branch, the Green Mill, the Art Institute, and the Chicago Cultural Center and on Oprah and National Public Radio.
