I love your store. I\'m a children\'s picture book author from Sacramento. I was wondering if you would be able to sell my book at your store?

Thanks!

Author Event - Aurora with Kim Stanley Robinson (Friday, July 17 at 7:30pm)
The Avid Reader is happy to present local author Kim Stanley Robinson for the launch of his newest science-fiction novel, Aurora on July 17th from 7:30pm to 8:30pm.

A major new novel from one of science fiction's most powerful voices, Aurora tells the incredible story of our first voyage beyond the solar system.

Freya and her parents live aboard a starship that has traveled for generations and will soon reach Tau Ceti, a star about 12 light years from Earth’s solar system. Freya’s mother, Devi, is the de facto chief engineer, struggling to keep the ship’s environment balanced until they reach a new world and, they hope, survive on it. But ecologies are delicate, resources are limited, and the laws of physics are immutable.

Over the course of Freya’s life, her community faces genuinely surprising struggles for survival, leading Freya to wonder whether it is too late to reconsider a question initially decided millions of miles away and centuries ago: should this ship have been launched in the first place?

About the Author: Kim Stanley Robinson is a New York Times bestseller and winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus awards. He is the author of more than twenty books, including the bestselling Mars trilogy and the critically acclaimed Forty Signs of Rain, The Years of Rice and Salt and 2312. In 2008, he was named a "Hero of the Environment" by Time magazine, and he works with the Sierra Nevada Research Institute. He lives in Davis, California.

Author Event - The Child Garden with Catriona McPherson (Friday, September 11 at 7:30pm)
The Avid Reader is thrilled to welcome back prolific local author Catriona McPherson for a reading, discussion, and signing of her latest book, the first hardback printed by Midnight Ink Press in celebration of their 10th anniversary, The child garden.

Eden was its name. “An alternative school for happy children.” But it closed in disgrace after a student’s suicide. Now it’s a care home, its grounds neglected and overgrown, and its only neighbor Gloria Harkness. Her son lives there, lighting up her life and breaking her heart each day.

When Gloria’s childhood friend turns up at her door, she doesn’t hesitate before asking him in. A girl from Eden is stalking him, has goaded him into meeting her at the site of the suicide. Only when the dead begin to speak, it’s murder they say.

Local and New York Times bestselling author John Lescroart says The child garden is "deeply resonant, utterly original, compelling, and satisfying, Catriona McPherson's The child garden is the work of a master—of character, tone, setting, and plot—writing at the thriller-most top of her form."

About the Author: Catriona McPherson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland and is the author of the Anthony Award-winning As She Left It, which was also included in Kirkus Reviews’ Best Fiction Books of 2013. She also wrote the Edgar Award-nominee The Day She Died and the Dandy Gilver historical mystery series. McPherson is the president of Sisters in Crime and a member of Mystery Writers of America. She lives in Winters.
