Oregon Young Adult Authors Kate Scott & Francesca Varela
Annie Bloom's Books, Monday, January 12, 2015 at 7pm
Kate Scott's The Evolution of Emily:

Emily Charles knows how to run away. Away from her overprotective, agoraphobic mother. Away from her biology-obsessed, autistic sister. Away from her quiet sheltered claustrophobic homeschooled life. When Emily's escape plan involves starting her junior year at Kennedy High School, she realizes she's no longer running away. Now she's running towards. Towards her quiet thoughtful cross-country teammate, August. Towards her zany enthusiastic lab partner, Miles. Towards friendship, love, independence, and life. Thanks to her sister's special interest in biology, Emily knows all about the birds and the bees. Boys are a lot more confusing. Readers who enjoyed Counting to D won't want to miss Scott's second novel, also set at Kennedy High School.

Francesca Varela's Call of the Sun Child:

Sempra has lived all of her sixteen years in an enclosed dome called the Circadia Stable Living Facility. It is structured, sustainable, and windowless. After the sun grew in intensity, causing society to become nocturnal, it was the only safe place to go. No one remembers the outside world. For 150 years the government has warned them about the deadly sun, and savage, vengeful outsiders. There is only one punishment for any crime: to be exiled from the facility. But Sempra is curious. Beyond those walls, what is there to see? When she and her childhood friend, Alden, discover a forbidden book, she begins to question the facility, and, with it, everything she has ever known.

Deborah Lincoln presents Agnes Cannon's War
Annie Bloom's Books, Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at 7pm
Agnes Canon is tired of being a spectator in life, a small-town schoolmarm and an invisible daughter among seven sisters, meat for the marriage market. The rivers of her Pennsylvania countryside flow west, and she yearns to flow with them, explore new lands, know the independence that is the usual sphere of men. This is a story of a woman's quest for freedom, both social and intellectual, and her education on the journey to freedom. She learns that freedom can be the scent and sound of unsettled prairies, the glimpse of a cougar, the call of a hawk. The struggle for freedom can test the chains of power, poverty, gender, or the legalized horror of slavery. And to her surprise, she discovers it can be found within a marriage, a relationship between a man and a woman who are equals in everything that matters. It's also the story of Jabez Robinson, a man who has traveled across the continent and seen the beauty of the country and the ghastliness of war, as he watches his nation barrel toward disaster. Faced with deep-seated social institutions and hard-headed intransigence, he finds himself helpless to intervene. Jabez's story is an indictment of war in any century or country, and an admission that common sense and reasoned negotiation continue to fail us. As Agnes and Jabez struggle to keep their community and their lives from crumbling about them, they must face the stark reality that whether it's the freedom of an African from servitude, of the South from the North, or of a woman from the demands of social convention, the cost is measured in chaos and blood. This eloquent work of historical fiction chronicles the building of a marriage against the background of a civilization growing - and dying - in the run-up to civil war.

Cindy Brown presents Macdeath
Annie Bloom's Books, Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 7pm
Like every actor, Ivy Meadows knows that Macbeth is cursed. But she’s finally scored her big break, cast as an acrobatic witch in a circus-themed production of Macbeth in Phoenix, Arizona. And though it may not be Broadway, nothing can dampen her enthusiasm—not her flying cauldron, too-tight leotard, or carrot-wielding dictator of a director. But when one of the cast dies on opening night, Ivy is sure the seeming accident is “murder most foul” and that she’s the perfect person to solve the crime (after all, she does work part-time in her uncle’s detective agency). Undeterred by a poisoned Big Gulp, the threat of being blackballed, and the suddenly too-real curse, Ivy pursues the truth at the risk of her hard-won career—and her life.

Luna Jaffe presents Wild Money
Annie Bloom's Books, Monday, January 26, 2015 at 7pm
Over the past ten years I have developed an innovative financial planning process that elegantly combines creativity and psychology, right brain and left brain, body and soul. I want to know what you feel about money, what experiences you've had with investing, what your fears are, what you strive for. Your values matter. Your dreams count. Your voice will be heard. I particularly love to work with women who find themselves with "sudden money"--an inheritance, divorce settlement, company buyout, business sale. There is emotional complexity when large sums of money come into your life, and taking the time to understand and prepare for the changes that will occur often results in feeling more secure, confident and financially savvy. My life's work is to inspire you to transform your relationship with money, build your net worth and feel confident being at the helm of your financial ship. Facebook Google Reddit Twitter

Marilyn Sewell presents Raw Faith
Annie Bloom's Books, Thursday, January 29, 2015 at 7pm
Marilyn writes about a universal longing—the longing for love and acceptance, the longing for home. The origin of her own angst is mother loss. Marilyn loses her mother at age 9 when her father snatches her and takes her to live with his parents in a small town in North Louisiana. She doesn’t get reacquainted with her mother until she is 33, when her mother is dying of cancer. Having grown up with no real home, she looks for home in the arms of men, in schools and churches, and in marriage. These places serve as a temporary refuge, but for the most part, home eludes her. She is sustained throughout her journey by her faith and her understanding that she is held by something larger than herself. Her wandering teaches her at last that home is not a place, not even with people she loves and who love her, but is rather a condition of the spirit. Home is always available, as she puts it, "if I can quiet my scared heart." Facebook Google Reddit Twitter

Poetry Reading: Frances Payne Adler, Donna Prinzmetal, Willa Schneberg
Annie Bloom's Books, Tuesday, February 3, 2015 at 7pm
Portland poet Frances Payne Adler is the author of five books: two poetry collections, Making of a Matriot (Red Hen Press) and Raising the Tents (Calyx Books); and three collaborative poetry-photography books and exhibitions that have shown in galleries and state capitol buildings across the country, and in the U.S. Senate in Washington, D.C. Adler also co-edited Fire and Ink: An Anthology of Social Action Writing, (University of Arizona Press), which won the ForeWord Book of the Year Award for Anthologies. Adler's current work is Dare I Call You Cousin, about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a collaboration with Israeli artists.

Portland poet Donna Prinzmetal's Snow White, When No One Was Looking is a collection of persona poetry, re-visions the original fairy tale. The poems are written in a multiplicity of voices and from a variety of perspectives. The diction is often contemporary; some poems attempt to deal with Snow White in popular culture; some rely on a more literal interpretation of the Grimm's fairy tale. Still others explore multicultural variations on the story. The poems investigate the relationship between Snow White's inner and outer world as she reflects on her journey and tells us her secrets.

Portland poet Willa Schneberg's Rending the Garment is a series of linked poems designed to explore the life and times of one Jewish American family. It is a narrative more of emotional truths than of facts. The facts are: Schneberg's parents were born and raised in Brooklyn, and after the death of her father, Portland became her mother's home. Her father suffered from agoraphobia, and her mother survived larynx cancer. Afterward, unable to speak, her mother "spoke" through writing in notebooks that were always with her. Rending the Garment is a narrative tapestry encompassing persona poems, prose poems, flash fiction, imagined meetings with historical figures, ancestral appearances, and ephemera.
