Jeffrey Shaffer presents Who Am I Today?
Annie Bloom's Books, Thursday, October 2 at 7pm
Jeffrey Shaffer writes about everyday life with a combination of observation and invention. In his mind thoughts emerge spontaneously, in all sizes, traveling at different speeds and often changing direction without warning. This book is a sampling of thoughts captured on paper that cover a wide range of subjects including the aging process, parenting techniques, telephone etiquette, a job interview with a two-headed applicant, the politically correct treatment of ants and much more. Don't be surprised to find the boundary lines separating fiction from reality bending, blurring or disappearing altogether. Facebook Google Reddit Twitter

Portland Authors Samuel Snoek-Brown and Eva Hunter
Annie Bloom's Books, Monday, October 6 at 7pm
From Samuel Snoek-Brown's Hagridden:

“What we do we do to survive and they ain’t no sin in that. But lust? Whoo girl, you got to look out for that they lust. Worst sin they is. Sinners what lusted after the flesh in this world, they turn to animals in the next. Crawl around on all fours rutting like dogs and the brimstone burning off they knees, the skin of they palms. Some say the rougarous is lusters coughed up from Hell to walk the earth.” As the Civil War winds violently down, fears of the South’s uncertain future fuse with its unraveling traditions. Against the backdrop of this post-apocalyptic landscape, so littered with corpses and mythology and desperation, two women, stranded and alone in the Louisiana bayou, fight to survive.

Eva Hunter is the author of the memoir A Little Mormon Girl and the novella The Council of Women.

In A Little Mormon Girl, Hunter writes of growing up in a strict Mormon household in the idyllic "perfect" town of Boulder City, Nevada--a town created and run by the US Federal government as a model city. She is the third child of four. Her mother is cold and punishing, and her sisters resent the interloper she is to them. The only warmth in the family is her flawed, yet charming father, who becomes one of the town's leading citizens. He is a child sexual abuser, and his actions affect every member of her family, and generation after generation that follows. This is the story of her flight to freedom and a new understanding of the world--from an oppressive, anti-female religion, a cold, punishing mother, and the horror of her father's advances.

Julie Hasson presents Vegan Casseroles
Annie Bloom's Books, Thursday, October 9 at 7pm
When it comes to traditional comfort food, most of the key ingredients are off-limits to health-conscious vegans. But giving up shepherd's pie, eggplant parm, and cheesy rice casserole was not an option for Julie Hasson, who took on the challenge to recreate flavors she loved, but without the cheese, eggs, butter, and cholesterol. The focus is on whole-food ingredients crafted into healthier takes on old favorites. The results are a mix of retro flavors--with nacho cheesy sauces and a lighter cream of mushroom soup for that creamy goodness--and fresh, veggie-forward dishes like cabbage rolls and creamed greens. Make your own casserole creations by pairing any of the super-simple sauces with your favorite veggies and rice or pasta. Dig in! Facebook Google Reddit Twitter

Alison Hawthorne Deming presents Zoologies
Annie Bloom's Books, Wednesday, October 15 at 7pm
Since the dawn of civilization, other animals have served as our adversaries and our companions, our helpers and our gods. Today, the inexorable rise of our own species has been accompanied by the large-scale extinction of others. And yet while much attention has been given to this alarming phenomenon, little attention has been given to a fascinating question: What does the disappearance of animals mean for the human imagination?

Ranging from the Serengeti to Madrid to her own backyard, Alison Hawthorne Deming helps us see the creatures around us with fresh eyes. Along her journey, Deming uncovers what hyenas can tell us about human bloodlust, how the art of leaf-cutter ants complicates our own artistic endeavors, what elephants can teach us about the deep reverberations of war and peace in our communities, and more. Moving beyond the grief and anxiety that so often surrounds any consideration of species extinction, these artful and incisive essays illuminate the mystery and wonder of our shared earthly experience.
