    Julie Hasson presents Vegan Casseroles
    Annie Bloom's Books, Monday, October 27 at 7pm
    NEW DATE! This event was originally scheduled for October 9. Come meet Julie on Monday the 27th!

    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

    Annie Bloom's Books, Wednesday, October 29 at 7pm
    In 1938, nineteen-year-old ranch hand Bud Frazer sets out for Hollywood. His little sister has been gone a couple of years now, his parents are finding ranch work and comfort for their loss where they can, but for Bud, Echol Creek, where he grew up and first learned to ride, is a place he can no longer call home. So he sets his sights on becoming a stunt rider in the movies -- and rubbing shoulders with the great screen cowboys of his youth.

    On the long bus ride south, Bud meets a young woman who also harbors dreams of making it in the movies, though not as a starlet but as a writer, a "real" writer. Lily Shaw is bold and outspoken, confident in ways out of proportion with her small frame and bookish looks. But the two strike up an unlikely kinship that will carry them through their tumultuous days in Hollywood -- and, as it happens, for the rest of their lives.

    Acutely observed, Falling from Horses charts what was to be a glittering year in the movie business through the wide eyes and lofty dreams of two people trying to make their mark on the world, or at least make their way in it. Molly Gloss weaves a remarkable tale of humans and horses, hope and heartbreak, narrated by one of the most winning narrators ever to walk off the page.

    David Shafer presents Whiskey Tango Foxtrot
    Annie Bloom's Books, Thursday, October 30 at 7pm
    The Committee, an international cabal of industrialists and media barons, is on the verge of privatizing all information. Dear Diary, an idealistic online Underground, stands in the way of that takeover, using radical politics, classic spycraft, and technology that makes Big Data look like dial-up. Into this secret battle stumbles an unlikely trio: Leila Majnoun, a disillusioned non-profit worker; Leo Crane, an unhinged trustafarian; and Mark Deveraux, a phony self-betterment guru who works for the Committee.

    Leo and Mark were best friends in college, but early adulthood has set them on diverging paths. Growing increasingly disdainful of Mark's platitudes, Leo publishes a withering takedown of his ideas online. But the Committee is reading--and erasing--Leo's words. On the other side of the world, Leila's discoveries about the Committee's far-reaching ambitions threaten to ruin those who are closest to her.

    In the spirit of William Gibson and Chuck Palahniuk, Whiskey tango foxtrot is both a suspenseful global thriller and an emotionally truthful novel about the struggle to change the world in- and outside your head. Facebook Google Reddit Twitter

    Jon Derek Croteau presents My Thinning Years
    Annie Bloom's Books, Monday, November 3 at 7pm
    As a child, Jon tried desperately to be his father's version of the all-American boy, denying his gayness in a futile attempt to earn the love and respect of an abusive man. With this he built a deep, internalized homophobia that made him want to disappear rather than live with the truth about himself. That denial played out in the forms of anorexia, bulimia, and obsessive running, which consumed him as an adolescent and young adult.

    It wasn't until a grueling yet transformative Outward Bound experience that Jon began to face his sexual identity. This exploration continued as he entered college and started the serious work of sorting through years of repressed anger to separate from his father's control and condemnation.

    My Thinning Years is an inspiring story of courage, creativity, and the will to live--and of recreating the definition of family to include friends, relatives, and teachers who support you in realizing your true self. Facebook Google Reddit Twitter

    Susan Winkler presents Portrait of a Woman in White
    Annie Bloom's Books, Tuesday, November 4 at 7pm
    1940, France: The eccentric Rosenswig-Assouline family is immersed in a belle-epoque lifestyle filled with art and antiques in their splendid chateau, Le Paradis, and the Matisse portrait of Lili's mother hangs in their Paris salon. The day before ardent young lovers Lili and her distant cousin Paul plan to marry, the Nazi's invade Paris and they are irrevocably thrust into the pressure cooker of war. The family flees toward Lisbon, but at the border Paul is detained and compelled to join the French army, while Lili is forced ahead to America. As their fortunes fall, Lili and Paul and the others scramble to do what they must to survive while trying to adapt to the emotional devastation. When the beloved Matisse portrait is looted by top Nazi Hermann Goring, their fate is ultimately interwoven with that of their portrait. This is their search for lost love and lost art, set to romance and mystery, inspired by history.

    The search for lost family, lost love and lost art was inspired by the Portland author's family history, and while the Rosenswig family is fictitious, other key players and events include the historic, from Matisse and Goring to French museum spy Rose Valland. Facebook Google Reddit Twitter

    Kate Gray, Stevan Allred and Joanna Rose
    Annie Bloom's Books, Wednesday, November 5 at 7pm
    Join us for this trio of local authors, each of whom will read from works containing "simplified maps."

    Kate Gray takes an unblinking look at bullying in her debut novel, Carry the Sky. It’s 1983 at an elite Delaware boarding school. 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. Carry the Sky sings a brave and honest anthem about what it means to be different in a world of uniformity.

    Fifteen linked stories chart a true course through the lives of families, farmers, loggers, former classmates, and the occasional stripper. In the richly imagined town of Renata, Oregon, a man watches his neighbor’s big-screen TV through binoculars. An errant son paints himself silver. Mysterious electrical humming emanates from an enormous barn. A secret abortion from three decades ago gets a public airing. In A Simplified Map of the Real World, intimate boundaries are loosened by divorce and death in a rural community where even an old pickle crock has an unsettling history—and high above the strife and the hope and the often hilarious, geese seek the perfect tailwind. Stevan Allred’s stunning debut deftly navigates the stubborn geography of the human heart.

    Portland writing instructor and author of the novel Little Miss Strange, Joanna Rose will read from a work in progress that includes a "simplified map." Facebook Google Reddit Twitter
