I told a Seminary Co-op employee about LT local and also about the bookstore integration program. She turned out to be an LT user too & said she'd pass on the info to the relevant people!

Walidah Imarisha - "Octavia's Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements" - 57th Street Books (Monday, March 30 at 6pm)
Walidah Imarisha discusses her latest book, Octavia's Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements

At 57th Street Books

RSVP HERE

About the book: Whenever we envision a world without war, without prisons, without capitalism, we are producing speculative fiction. Organizers and activists envision, and try to create, such worlds all the time. Walidah Imarisha and adrienne maree brown have brought twenty of them together in the first anthology of short stories to explore the connections between radical speculative fiction and movements for social change. The visionary tales of Octavia’s Brood span genres—sci-fi, fantasy, horror, magical realism—but all are united by an attempt to inject a healthy dose of imagination and innovation into our political practice and to try on new ways of understanding ourselves, the world around us, and all the selves and worlds that could be. The collection is rounded off with essays by Tananarive Due and Mumia Abu-Jamal, and a preface by Sheree Renée Thomas.

About the author: Walidah Imarisha is a writer, organizer, educator and spoken word artist. She is the author of the collection of poetry Scars/Stars, and one of the co-editors of the upcoming anthology Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements. Imarisha has taught in Portland State University’s Black Studies Department, Oregon State University’s Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies Department and Southern New Hampshire University’s English Department. She has also facilitated writing workshops, for students in third grade to twelfth, in community centers, youth detention facilities, and women’s prisons. As a public scholar with Oregon Humanities’ Conversation Project for 5 years, Imarisha has toured Oregon with programs on Oregon Black history, alternatives to incarceration and the history of hip hop. She also filmed and codirected Finding Common Ground in New Orleans, a documentary about Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath.

Blue Balliett BOOK LAUNCH - "Pieces and Players" (Saturday, April 4 at 3pm)
Award-winning author in Hyde Park celebrates the release of her latest title, Pieces and Players

At 57th Street Books

RSVP HERE

About the book: THE PIECES: Thirteen extremely valuable pieces of art have been stolen from one of the most secretive museums in the world. A Vermeer has vanished. A Manet is missing. And nobody has any idea where they and the other eleven artworks might be . . . or who might have stolen them. THE PLAYERS: Calder, Petra, and Tommy are no strangers to heists and puzzles. Now they've been matched with two new sleuths -- Zoomy, a very small boy with very thick glasses, and Early, a girl who treasures words . . . and has a word or two to say about the missing treasure. The kids have been drawn in by the very mysterious Mrs. Sharpe, who may be playing her own kind of game with the clues. And it's not just Mrs. Sharpe who's acting suspiciously -- there's a ghost who mingles with the guards in the museum, a cat who acts like a spy, and bystanders in black jackets who keep popping up.

About the author: Balliett has won the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Juvenile Novel, Chicago Tribune Prize for Young Adult Fiction, Chicago Public Library Foundation’s 21st Century Award, Book Sense Book of the Year Award, Great Lakes Book Award, Friends of American Writers Award, Agatha Award for Best YA Novel, Chicago Tribune’s Chicagoan of the Year for Literature, 2010, and a place in the official White House library as The Danger Box was handed to President Obama in January 2011 as a gift from the American Booksellers Association.

David Krugler - "1919, The Year of Racial Violence" - with Margaret Storey (Monday, April 6 at 6pm)
At the Co-op

RSVP HERE

About the book: 1919, the year of racial violence recounts African Americans' brave stand against a cascade of mob attacks in the United States after World War I. The emerging New Negro identity, which prized unflinching resistance to second-class citizenship, further inspired veterans and their fellow black citizens. In city after city – Washington, DC; Chicago; Charleston; and elsewhere – black men and women took up arms to repel mobs that used lynching, assaults, and other forms of violence to protect white supremacy; yet, authorities blamed blacks for the violence, leading to mass arrests and misleading news coverage. Refusing to yield, African Americans sought accuracy and fairness in the courts of public opinion and the law. This is the first account of this three-front fight – in the streets, in the press, and in the courts – against mob violence during one of the worst years of racial conflict in U.S. history.

About the author: David F. Krugler is Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin, Platteville.

Wallis Wilde-Menozzi - The Other Side of the Tiber (Friday, April 10 at 6pm)
Cosponsored by the Italian Cultural Institute

RSVP HERE

About The Other Side of the Tiber:

A fresh, nuanced perspective on a profoundly perplexing country: this is what Wallis Wilde-Menozzi’s unique, captivating narrative promises—and delivers. The Other Side of the Tiber brings Italy to life in an entirely new way, treating the peninsula as a series of distinct places, subjects, histories, and geographies bound together by a shared sense of life. A multifaceted image of Italy emerges—in beautiful black-and-white photographs, many taken by Wilde-Menozzi herself—as does a portrait of the author. Wilde-Menozzi, who has written about Italy for nearly forty years, offers unexpected conclusions about one of the most complex and best-loved countries in the world. Beginning her story with a hitchhiking trip to Rome when she was a student in England, she illuminates a passionate, creative, and vocal people who are often confined to stereotypes. Earthquakes and volcanoes; a hundred-year-old man; Siena as a walled city; Keats in Rome; the refugee camp of Manduria; the Slow Food movement; realism in Caravaggio; the concept of good and evil; Mary the Madonna as a subject—from these varied angles, Wilde-Menozzi traces a society skeptical about competition and tolerant of contradiction. Bringing them together in the present, she suggests the compensations of the Italians’ long view of time. Like the country, this book will inspire discussion and revisiting.

About the author:

Wallis Wilde-Menozzi lives in Parma, Italy, where for decades she has observed Italian life and participated in its dialogues. Her memoir, Mother Tongue: An American Life in Italy, was published in 1997 by North Point Press to critical acclaim.

Global Voices: Chigozie Obioma - "The Fishermen" - with Brady Smith (Thursday, April 16 at 6pm)
Co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture, the Committee on Creative Writing and International House at the University of Chicago

At the International House, Home Room.

RSVP HERE.

About The Fishermen:

Seamlessly interweaving the everyday and the elemental, Obioma’s strange, imaginative debut—the translation rights to which have been sold in 12 countries—probes the nature of belief and the power of family bonds. Set in 1990s Nigeria, it is narrated by Benjamin Agwu, who is nine when his father departs for a distant banking job, leaving his wife and six children behind in the village of Akure. Despite stern admonitions, the four oldest brothers soon test their mother’s discipline. Their worst transgression is to fish in the Omi-Ala, a once-pure river that has become dirty and dangerous. There they encounter a mentally ill man named Abulu, who is locally believed to have powers of prophecy. Inexplicably, Abulu knows the eldest Agwu brother, Ikenna, by name. In a trance, he foretells the teenager’s death in detail, adding that it will be at “the hands of a fisherman.” Convinced that one of his brothers will kill him, Ikenna is enraged and destructive, isolating himself and throwing his home into chaos; ultimately, not just Ikenna but the whole family will be transformed by the power of Abulu’s words. Obioma excels at juxtaposing sharp observation, rich images of the natural world, and motifs from biblical and tribal lore; his novel succeeds as a convincing modern narrative and as a majestic reimagining of timeless folklore.

About Chigozie Obioma: Chigozie Obioma was born in Nigeria. He has lived in Cyprus, Turkey and now the United States where he is a Helen Zell fellow at the University of Michigan. A recipient of Hopwood Awards in fiction and poetry, his fiction has appeared in Virginia Quarterly Review and Transition. His novel, The Fishermen, will be published originally in English by ONE/Pushkin Press (UK), Little, Brown (US/Canada), Scribe (Australia/NZ), and in 8 languages beginning from Spring 2015. Go to 'International Editions' section of the website for a list of editions and publishers' pages.

About Brady Smith: Brady Smith received his PhD in English from the University of Chicago in March 2015. He teaches and writes about African literature, environmental humanities, and the Lusophone Atlantic world.

Katha Pollitt - "PRO: Reclaiming Abortion Rights" (Thursday, April 16 at 6:30pm)
Co-sponsored by the University of Chicago Law Students for Reproductive Justice

At the Co-op

RSVP HERE

About the book: In this urgent, controversial book, Katha Pollitt reframes abortion as a common part of a woman's reproductive life, one that should be accepted as a moral right with positive social implications. In Pro, Pollitt takes on the personhood argument, reaffirms the priority of a woman's life and health, and discusses why terminating a pregnancy can be a force for good for women, families, and society. It is time, Pollitt argues, that we reclaim the lives and the rights of women and mothers.

About the author: Polemicist, poet, feminist. Writer of the "Subject to Debate" column for The Nation. Author of books including Learning to Drive, The Mind-Body Problem, Virginity or Death!: And Other Social and Political Issues of Our Time, and Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights.

Ronald Rosbottom - "When Paris Went Dark: The City of Light Under German Occupation 1940–1944" (Friday, April 17 at 6pm)
At the Co-op

RSVP HERE

About the book:

When paris went dark: The City of Light Under German Occupation 1940–1944, weaves a rich tapestry of stories to rediscover from the pavement up the texture of daily life in a city that looked the same but had lost much of its panache. Over the four years of the Occupation, an eerie sense of normalcy would settle over Paris as the occupiers and the occupied struggled to coexist. Using a vast range of sources—memoirs, diaries, personal letters, archives, interviews, unpublished personal histories, newspaper articles, histories, fiction, photographs, and films—Rosbottom forges an unforgettable history of both the important and minor challenges of day-to-day life under Nazi occupation, and of the myriad forms of resistance that took shape during that period. This expansive narrative will fascinate readers who are interested in the history and continuing legacy of World War II, Jewish history, the role of the arts in a repressive environment, and novels and films of that period, and, or course, lovers of France.

About the author: Ronald C. Rosbottom is the Winifred L. Arms Professor in the Arts and Humanities and Professor of French and European Studies at Amherst College.

Liesl Shurtliff BOOK LAUNCH - "Jack: The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk" (Saturday, April 18 at 4:30pm)
Join us for a release party for Jack, the new novel by Hyde Park resident & kids' author Liesl Shurtliff!

RSVP HERE.

About Jack: Fans of Adam Gidwitz and Chris Colfer will give a GIANT cheer for this funny fairytale retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk!

All work and no play makes Jack extremely bored. And when Jack gets bored, he makes mischief. It’s not that he’s bad; he just longs for adventure—and there’s nothing adventurous about toiling day and night to grow yucky green stuff. Adventure finally arrives one day in the form of giants, and soon Jack is chasing them to a land beyond the clouds, with his little sister, Annabella, in tow. The kingdom of giants is full of slugs the size of sheep, venomous pixies as tall as grown men, and a chatty cook with the biggest mouth Jack has ever seen. There’s giant fun to be had, too: puddings to swim in, spoons to use as catapults, monster toads to carry off pesky little sisters. . . . But Jack and Annabella are on a mission. The king of the giants has taken something that belongs to them, and they’ll do anything—even dive into a smelly tureen of green bean soup—to get it back.

About Liesl: Liesl Shurtliff was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. Just like Jack, she was made to do lots of yard work, pulling weeds and growing green stuff she did not want to eat. Now she lives with her family in Chicago, where it is very hard to grow things in her elf-sized yard. She dearly loves the local farmers’ market and always makes her kids eat the green stuff. Before she became a writer, Liesl graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in music, dance, and theater. Her first book, Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin, won over kids and critics alike, earning an IRA Award, a Texas Bluebonnet nomination, a Whitney nomination, and a starred review from Kirkus, proclaiming it “as good as gold.” Her next book will be a fractured retelling of “Little Red Riding Hood.”

About the author: Jennifer Morales is a poet, fiction writer, and performance artist whose work focuses on questions of identity, complicity, gender, and harm. She earned her MFA in Creative Writing from Antioch University-Los Angeles in 2011, and is a board member of the Council for Wisconsin Writers and the Driftless Writing Center.

Kate Brown - "Dispatches From Dystopia: Histories of Places Not Yet Forgotten" - CEERES (Monday, April 20 at 6pm)
Co-sponsored by the Center for Eastern European and Russian / Eurasian Studies (CEERES)

At the Co-op

RSVP HERE

About the book: “Why are Kazakhstan and Montana the same place?” asks one chapter of Kate Brown’s surprising and unusual journey into the histories of places on the margins, overlooked or erased. It turns out that a ruined mining town in Kazakhstan and Butte, Montana—America’s largest environmental Superfund site—have much more in common than one would think thanks to similarities in climate, hucksterism, and the perseverance of their few hardy inhabitants. Taking readers to these and other unlikely locales, Dispatches from Dystopia delves into the very human and sometimes very fraught ways we come to understand a particular place, its people, and its history.

About the author: Kate Brown is professor of history at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. She is also the author of Biography of No Place: From Ethnic Borderland to Soviet Heartland and Plutopia: Nuclear Families, Atomic Cities, and the Great Soviet and American Plutonium Disasters.
