Debra Gorson Zaslow presents Bringing Bubbe Home
Annie Bloom's Books, Thursday, July 31 at 7pm
Debra Zaslow was humming along on baby-boomer autopilot, immersed in her life as a professional storyteller, wife of a Rabbi, and mother of two teenagers when she felt compelled to bring her 103-year-old grandmother, Bubbe, who was dying alone in a nursing facility, home to live and die with her family. Zaslow had no idea if she would have the emotional stamina to midwife Bubbe to the other side.

Bringing Bubbe Home is the story of their time together in Bubbe's last months, mingled with scenes from the past that reveal how her grandmother's stories of abuse, tenacity, and survival have played out through the generations of women in the family. Debra watches her expectations of a perfect death dissolve in the midst of queen-size diapers, hormonal teenagers and volatile caregivers, while the two women sit soul-to-soul in the place between life and death. As she holds her grandmother's gnarled hand and traces the lines of her face, Debra sees her own search for mothering reflected in her grandmother's eyes. When Bubbe finally dies, something in Debra is born: the possibility to move into the future without the chains of the past. Facebook Google Reddit Twitter

Portland Novelists Dan Berne & Jared John Smith
Annie Bloom's Books, Thursday, August 7 at 7pm
In Dan Berne's novel The Gods of Second Chances, family means everything to Alaskan fisherman Ray Bancroft, raising his granddaughter while battling storms, invasive species, and lawsuit-happy tourists. To navigate, and to catch enough crab to feed her college fund, Ray seeks help from a multitude of gods and goddesses—not to mention ad-libbed rituals performed at sea by his half-Tlingit best friend. But kitchen counter statues and otter bone ceremonies aren’t enough when his estranged daughter returns from prison, swearing she’s clean and sober. Her search for a safe harbor threatens everything Ray holds sacred. Set against a backdrop of ice and mud and loss, Dan Berne’s gripping debut novel explores the unpredictable fissures of memory, and how families can break apart even in the midst of healing.

Jared John Smith's Rabbit is about J, a male American folklorist, aged twenty-seven, collecting ghost stories across states for freelance pieces. Along the halfway point of a 4,000 mile road trip through humid forestry and dry canyons, J meets with his homeless, mentally-ill father for the first time since age five. There are musings on sizes of stars and fragile creatures, the deaths of rabbits; mostly, it is a frantic hunt for family and its definition. Facebook Google Reddit Twitter

Edan Lepucki
Powell's City of Books (Portland), Wednesday, August 13 at 7:30pm
The world Cal and Frida have always known is gone, and they've left the crumbling city of Los Angeles far behind them. They now live in a shack in the wilderness, working side by side to make their days tolerable in the face of hardship and isolation. Mourning a past they can't reclaim, they seek solace in each other. But the tentative existence they've built for themselves is thrown into doubt when Frida finds out she's pregnant. Terrified of the unknown and unsure of their ability to raise a child alone, Cal and Frida set out for the nearest settlement, a guarded and paranoid community with dark secrets. These people can offer them security, but Cal and Frida soon realize this community poses dangers of its own. In this unfamiliar world, where everything and everyone can be perceived as a threat, the couple must quickly decide whom to trust. A gripping and provocative debut novel by a stunning new talent, Edan Lepucki's California (Little, Brown and Company) imagines a frighteningly realistic near future, in which clashes between mankind's dark nature and deep-seated resilience force us to question how far we will go to protect the ones we love. http://www.powells.com/events?utm_source=google&utm_medium=calendar&utm_...

Malcolm Brooks in Conversation with Smith Henderson
Powell's City of Books (Portland), Thursday, August 14 at 7:30pm
In the mid-1950s, America was flush with prosperity and saw an unbroken line of progress clear to the horizon, while the West was still very much wild. Painted Horses (Grove Press), Malcolm Brooks's ambitious, incandescent debut, animates that time and untamed landscape in a tale of the modern and the ancient, of love and fate, and of heritage threatened by progress. Catherine Lemay is a young archaeologist on her way to Montana. Working ahead of a major dam project, she has one summer to prove nothing of historical value will be lost in the flood. From the moment she arrives, nothing is familiar — the vastness of the canyon itself mocks the contained, artifact-rich digs in post-Blitz London where she cut her teeth. Painted Horses sends a dauntless young woman on a heroic quest, sings a love song to the horseman's vanishing way of life, and reminds us that love and ambition, tradition and the future, often make strange bedfellows. Brooks will be joined in conversation by Smith Henderson, author of Fourth of July Creek. http://www.powells.com/events?utm_source=google&utm_medium=calendar&utm_... (added from Powell's)… (more)

James Rollins
Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, Monday, August 18 at 7pm
In The 6th Extinction: A Sigma Force Novel (William Morrow), a masterful epic of timeless mystery and ripped-from-the-headlines scientific intrigue, James Rollins takes mankind to its endpoint, to a fate written in rock and ice. A remote military research station broadcasts a frantic distress call that ends with a chilling message: kill us all. When soldiers arrive to investigate, they discover everyone in the lab is dead — and not just the scientists. Every living thing for 50 square miles is annihilated: every animal, plant, and insect, even bacteria. The land is completely sterile, and the blight is spreading. To prevent the inevitable, Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma must decipher a threat that rises out of the distant past, a time when Antarctica was green and Earth's life balanced on a knife edge. From millennia-old secrets out of the frozen past to mysteries buried deep in the darkest jungles of today, Sigma will face its greatest challenge yet: stopping the coming extinction of mankind. http://www.powells.com/events?utm_source=google&utm_medium=calendar&utm_...

Dana Haynes
Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, Tuesday, August 19 at 7pm
In Gun Metal Heart (Minotaur) by Dana Haynes, Daria Gibron, a freelance operative with a long and deadly history, has been slowly recovering from the injuries sustained from her last case. Hiding out in a town in rural Italy, she has been staying as far off the map as she can — until she's tracked down by an old colleague. Diego had been a bodyguard in Florence, protecting an engineer and her invention, when they were attacked by a highly trained paramilitary group. Diego alone escaped and the White Scorpions, a Serbian mercenary group known for their indiscriminate violence, are now after him. Well, after him and Daria, now that he's dragged her into the picture. With several highly trained teams out to get her, a partner withholding critical information, and a missing invention around which everything turns, Daria is in the worst danger of her life. And she couldn't be having more fun. http://www.powells.com/events?utm_source=google&utm_medium=calendar&utm_... (added from Powell's)… (more)

William Deresiewicz
Powell's City of Books (Portland), Tuesday, August 19 at 7:30pm
As a professor at Yale, William Deresiewicz saw something that troubled him deeply. His students, some of the nation's brightest minds, were adrift when it came to the big questions: How do you think critically and creatively? How do you find a sense of purpose? Excellent Sheep: The Miseducation of the American Elite and the Way to a Meaningful Life (Free Press) takes a sharp look at the high-pressure conveyor belt that begins with parents and counselors who demand perfect grades and culminates in the skewed applications Deresiewicz saw firsthand as a member of Yale's admissions committee. Deresiewicz explains how college should be a time for self-discovery, when students can establish their own values and measures of success, so they can forge their own path. http://www.powells.com/events?utm_source=google&utm_medium=calendar&utm_...
