Polarity Theatre Ensemble presents THE AFTERLIFE TRILOGY (Thursday, January 29 at 7pm)
Join Us for THE AFTERLIFE TRILOGY 7 pm Thursday January 29 at The Book Cellar! Polarity Ensemble Theatre introduces a new way to experience theater with The Afterlife Trilogy: two novels to be read before seeing a play. Join us for a free book launch event at The Book Cellar. Actors Rian Jairell, Allison McCorkle, Margo Chervony and Richard Engling perform scenes from the novels adapted and directed by Helen Young and Charles C. Palia Jr. To learn more, visit The Afterlife Trilogy. Why does a beautiful, talented woman take her own life? That's the mystery behind Richard Engling's VISIONS OF ANNA, a novel that takes us to the 1970's Paris of poets and writers, on and off a movie set in Hollywood, and to an epic ritual in the desert of Utah. Part two takes us deeper into the mystery with SHE PLAYS IN DARKNESS, a novel by Fern Chertkow, the author who inspired the character of ANNA. Part three takes us to the ultimate setting with ANNA IN THE AFTERLIFE, a world premiere play by Richard Englingwhich will open in April 2015.

About Visions of Anna: "Matthew Harken's urgent questions about his friend Anna's suicide and his own critical illness compel him to risk a perilous, spiritual quest. Hisheartrending, heart-opening journey through the interwoven worlds of memory, dream, and shamanic magic lead him not only to visions of Anna but to visions of grace. This passionate, poignant novel stands alone strongly and invites us deeper into the mystery of The Afterlife Trilogy." -Elizabeth Cunningham, author of The Maeve Chronicles.

"She Plays in Darkness is an exquisitely beautiful and haunting novel filled with such fully developed characters that readers will not soon forget them. This is a book to cherish, to re-read, the kind of novel that avoids sentimentality so fiercely that readers will give copies to their friends and tell them, 'Read this, this is a how a woman's life truly is.'" -Tony Ardizzone, author of The Whale Chaser

Scott Blackwood "See How Small" (Friday, January 30 at 7pm)
Join us as we welcom author Scott Blackwood in a conversation with Chicago Tribune literary editor Elizabeth Taylor about his new novel, See How Small. One late autumn evening in a Texas town, two strangers walk into an ice cream shop shortly before closing time. They bind up the three teenage girls who are working the counter, set fire to the shop, and disappear. See How Small tells the stories of the survivors--family, witnesses, and suspects--who must endure in the wake of atrocity. Justice remains elusive in their world, human connection tenuous. Hovering above the aftermath of their deaths are the three girls. They watch over the town and make occasional visitations, trying to connect with and prod to life those they left behind. "See How Small a thing it is that keeps us apart," they say. A master of compression and lyrical precision, Scott Blackwood has surpassed himself with this haunting, beautiful, and enormously powerful new novel.

Scott Blackwood is the author of the novels See How Small and We Agreed to Meet Just Here, and the story collection, In the Shadow of Our House. He's the recipient of a Whiting Writers' Award, the AWP Prize for the Novel, and The Texas Institute of Letters Award for his fiction. He's also the Grammy Award-nominated author of The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records, a two-volume narrative about American’s greatest “race record” label and the rise of early jazz and blues, produced by the musician Jack White. A long-time resident of Austin, Texas, Blackwood lives in Evanston.

**OFFSITE** Kelly Leonard @ Virgin Hotel (Wednesday, February 4 at 6:30pm)
Kelly Leonard comes to the Virgin Hotel to talk about his new book Yes, And: How Improvisation Reverses "No, But" Thinking and Improves Creativity and Collaboration--Lessons from The Second City!!

Kelly Leonard has worked at The Second City since 1988 and has overseen productions with such notable performers as Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Adam McKay, Seth Meyers, Rachel Dratch, Amy Poehler, Jason Sudeikis, Keegan Michael Key, Rachel Dratch, Amy Sedaris and a host of others. Mr. Leonard co-founded Second City Theatricals, the division of the company that develops an eclectic array of live entertainment all over the world. Recent productions include “The Second City Guide to the Opera” starring Renee Fleming and Sir Patrick Stewart with Lyric Opera Chicago; “America All Better,” which was nominated for a Helen Hayes Award at The Woolly Mammoth Theatre in Washington, DC; and an upcoming collaboration with Hubbard Street Dance that will premiere at The Harris Theatre in Chicago in October of 2014. Mr. Leonard also brokered the deal that brought The Second City to the high seas where the company maintains full time ensembles aboard a number of Norwegian Cruise Line Ships. He has received many honors, including being named to Crain’s Chicago Business 40 under 40 list and named one of the top 40 cultural figures in Chicago by Time Out Magazine. He recently received an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, Lake Forest College and his first book, “Yes, And,” will be published by Harper Collins in February of 2015. Mr. Leonard lives in Chicago with his wife Anne Libera and their children Nick and Nora.

Yes, And: How Improvisation Reverses "No, But" Thinking and Improves Creativity and Collaboration--Lessons from The Second City:

Executives from The Second City—the world’s premier comedy theater and school of improvisation—reveal improvisational techniques that can help any organization develop innovators, encourage adaptable leaders, and build transformational businesses. For more than fifty years, The Second City comedy theater in Chicago has been a training ground for some of the best comic minds in the industry—including John Belushi, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, Mike Myers, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, and Tina Fey. But it also provides one-of-a-kind leadership training to cutting-edge companies, nonprofits, and public sector organizations—all aimed at increasing creativity, collaboration, and teamwork. The rules for leadership and teamwork have changed, and the skills that got professionals ahead a generation ago don’t work anymore. Now The Second City provides a new toolkit individuals and organizations can use to thrive in a world increasingly shaped by speed, social communication, and decentralization. Based on eight principles of improvisation, Yes, And helps to develop these skills and foster them in high-potential leaders and their teams.

**OFFSITE** Ishmael Beah@the Latin School Library (Thursday, February 5 at 7pm)
Ishmael Beah comes to The Latin School Library to talk about his new book Radiance of Tomorrow! When Ishmael Beah’s A Long Way Gone was published in 2007, it soared to the top of bestseller lists, becoming an instant classic: a harrowing account of Sierra Leone’s civil war and the fate of child soldiers that “everyone in the world should read” (The Washington Post). At the center of Radiance of Tomorrow are Benjamin and Bockarie, two longtime friends who return to their hometown, Imperi, after the civil war. The village is in ruins, the ground covered in bones. As more villagers begin to come back, Benjamin and Bockarie try to forge a new community by taking up their former posts as teachers, but they’re beset by obstacles: a scarcity of food; a rash of murders, thievery, rape, and retaliation; and the depredations of a foreign mining company intent on sullying the town’s water supply and blocking its paths with electric wires. As Benjamin and Bockarie search for a way to restore order, they’re forced to reckon with the uncertainty of their past and future alike. With the gentle lyricism of a dream and the moral clarity of a fable, Radiance of Tomorrow is a powerful novel about preserving what means the most to us, even in uncertain times. Named one of the Christian Science Monitor's best fiction books of 2014 Ishmael Beah was born in Sierra Leone in 1980. He moved to the United States in 1998 and finished his last two years of high school at the United Nations International School in New York. In 2004 he graduated from Oberlin College with a B.A. in political science. He is a member of the Human Rights Watch Children’s Rights Division Advisory Committee and has spoken before the United Nations, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Center for Emerging Threats and Opportunities (CETO) at the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory, and many other NGO panels on children affected by the war. His work has appeared in VespertinePress and LIT magazine. He lives in New York City.

Local Author Night! (Wednesday, February 18 at 7pm)
The Book Cellar hosts its monthly Local Author Night! This month we are pleased to present Greg Hickey (Our Dried Voices)!!

Greg Hickey is a forensic scientist, endurance athlete and writer. His debut novel, Our Dried Voices, is scheduled for publication in November 2014 with Scribe Publishing Company. He is also the writer of the award-winning screenplay, Vita. His blog, KineSophy, analyzes topics in philosophy and fitness. He lives in Chicago with his wife, Lindsay.

About Our Dried Voices: In 2153, cancer was cured. In 2189, AIDS. In 2234, the first genetically-enhanced disease-resistant child was born, and disease was no longer a threat to humankind. Extreme overpopulation resulted, leading to a Fourth World War that devastated sub-Saharan Africa and claimed 289 million lives. Global warming continued despite radical advances in environmentally friendly technology. Faced with a dying planet, space explorations were launched in search of a new home for humanity. A suitable planet, later named Pearl, was discovered 16 light-years from Earth, and in 2235 a massive spacecraft carrying thousands of people was dispatched to begin the first colony on Pearl. Seventeen years into that voyage, the mission lost contact with Earth. This is the story of a new humanity, hundreds of years after the establishment of the colony on Pearl. It is a world in which human needs are provided for with perfect synchronization. Meals are distributed automatically three times a day through machines in great dining halls. The weather is controlled to allow for moderate temperatures with just enough rain. Sleeping halls and toilets are regularly cleaned and maintained. There is no more need for human labor, for struggle, for thought.But then a curious series of incidents arises in this dystpian colony. The food machines break down. It begins to rain incessantly. The doors of the toilets are locked from the inside. And now, for the first time in their lives, the colonists are faced with a real test. Someone must step forward to repair these malfunctions. And, more importantly, that someone must get to the bottom of their occurrence.

Sharon Wright is a business consultant as well as a life coach who works with horses to help people reflect on the life path they create.

About Running to Stay Upright:

Liz Burgess wakes up one morning to realize she is about to lose everything—and it’s all her fault.

Her husband’s love and trust; her daughter’s innocence; her family’s cherished home; and her own sense of safety and control are spinning with alarming speed beyond her reach.

Her struggle to heal long-buried fears and rebuild her family’s shattered dreams takes her on a journey of hope and discovery that will touch anyone who has experienced loss and climbed back to a new understanding of what is important in life.

David Treuer, "Prudence" (Thursday, February 19 at 7pm)
David Treuer is an Ojibwe Indian from Leech Lake Reservation in northern Minnesota. He is the recipient of a Pushcart Prize, the 1996 Minnesota Book Award, and fellowships from the NEH, Bush Foundation, and the Guggenheim Foundation. He divides his time between his home on the Leech Lake Reservation and Los Angeles, where he is a Professor of Literature at USC. Treuer graduated from Princeton in 1992 and published his first novel, Little, in 1995. He received his PhD in anthropology and published his second novel, The Hiawatha, in 1999. His third novel The Translation of Dr Apelles and a book of criticism, Native American Fiction; A User's Manual appeared in 2006. The Translation of Dr Apelles was named a Best Book of the Year by the Washington Post, Time Out, and City Pages. He published his first major work of nonfiction, Rez Life, in 2012. His next novel, Prudence, is forthcoming from Riverhead Book. His essays and stories have appeared in Esquire, TriQuarterly, The Washington Post, Lucky Peach, The New York Times, The LA Times, and Slate.com. Prudence: On a sweltering day in August 1942, Frankie Washburn returns to his family's rustic Minnesota resort for one last visit before he joins the war as a bombardier, headed for the darkened skies over Europe. Awaiting him at the Pines are those he's about to leave behind: his hovering mother; the distant father to whom he's been a disappointment; the Indian caretaker who's been more of a father to him than his own; and Billy, the childhood friend who over the years has become something much more intimate. But before the homecoming can be celebrated, the search for a German soldier, escaped from the POW camp across the river, explodes in a shocking act of violence, with consequences that will reverberate years into the future for all of them and that will shape how each of them makes sense of their lives. With Prudence, David Treuer delivers his most ambitious and captivating novel yet. Powerful and wholly original, it's a story of desire and loss and the search for connection in a riven world; of race and class in a supposedly more innocent era. Most profoundly, it's about the secrets we choose to keep, the ones we can't help but tell, and who--and how--we're allowed to love.

Anupy Singla, "Indian for Everyone: The Home Cook's Guide to Traditional Favorites." (Thursday, February 26 at 7pm)
Anupy Singla brings her cooking magic to The Book Cellar to talk about her new cookbook Indian for Everyone: The Home Cook's Guide to Traditional Favorites.

Small bites will be served!!!!! Join us for a taste.

Cookbook author and journalist Anupy Singla is fast becoming one of the country’s foremost authorities on Indian food and cooking. She is the author of three books. Her latest, Indian for Everyone, which was released in October 2014, is a compilation of the most popular Indian recipes outside of India. From Spinach Pakoras to Aloo Gobi, Tandoori Chicken, and even key desserts - it's all in there. The recipes are authentic but then show you how to make them healthier, lighter, and even vegan and Gluten Free (GF). Born in India and raised outside of Philadelphia, Anupy grew up visiting her grandfather's childhood village in Punjab. She first learned to cook traditional, spicy Punjabi-style food from him. It was this passion that compelled her to leave daily reporting to teach her young girls how to appreciate good Indian food and blog about it on indianasapplepie.com - now also the name of her company. Her first two books, The Indian Slow Cooker and Vegan Indian Cooking remain the top-selling Indian cookbooks in North America. In both, she successfully combines her knowledge of Indian cooking and her journalistic style to give you easy recipes that are at once authentic and healthy. Her approach is Indian food from an American point of view - the essence of Indian As Apple Pie. She and her growing food and housewares company, Indian As Apple Pie, have been featured in Food & Wine Manazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, Kiwi Magazine, and she has appeared on television stations across the country and in Canada.

Indian for Everyone is the go-to Indian cookbook that every home cook should own. This is Anupy Singla's most comprehensive cookbook yet, with more than 100 classic recipes, including many with meat and seafood, but written to be adaptable for vegan and vegetarian diets. The majority of the recipes are also safe for gluten-free readers, making Indian for Everyone a flexible, practical resource for almost every reader. Indian for Everyone begins with helpful sections outlining the most useful cooking equipment needed for preparing Indian food and a primer on Indian spices, herbs, and other common ingredients. The book is divided into eight sections: The Basics (spice blends, chutneys, drinks); Street Food and Snacks; Vegetable Stir-Fries; Dal; Vegetable Curries; Poultry, Meat, and Seafood; Bread; and Dessert. From classic favorites like Mattar Paneer (Peas and Homemade Cheese), Tandoori Chicken, and Vegetable Samosas that will be familiar to anyone who frequents Indian restaurants in the US, to less well-known dishes that originated from different regions across India, Indian for Everyone opens up the diverse world of delicious Indian cuisine to home cooks everywhere. This is the one Indian cookbook that every home cook should own.
