JOHN SCALZI-Lock In (Wednesday, August 27 at 7pm)
Wednesday, August 27 at 7pm BookPeople Presents Hugo Award Winning Author John Scalzi speaking and signing Lock In We are BIG fans of John Scalzi's work and are stoked to welcome him to the store tonight. Red Shirts was our Top Shelf pick a while back and maintains a place of honor on our shelves. Now, we're saving a spot for Lock In, the story of "Haden's syndrome", a highly contagious virus that locks people in their bodies, unable to move or respond to stimuli. When a Haden-related murder is committe at the Watergate Hotel, two FBI agents team up to investigate, unraveling the threads of a mystery and crime bigger than anyone could have imagined. About Lock In: Not too long from today, a new, highly contagious virus makes its way across the globe. Most who get sick experience nothing worse than flu, fever and headaches. But for the unlucky one percent – and nearly five million souls in the United States alone – the disease causes "Lock In": Victims fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus. The disease affects young, old, rich, poor, people of every color and creed. The world changes to meet the challenge. A quarter of a century later, in a world shaped by what’s now known as "Haden’s syndrome," rookie FBI agent Chris Shane is paired with veteran agent Leslie Vann. The two of them are assigned what appears to be a Haden-related murder at the Watergate Hotel, with a suspect who is an "integrator" – someone who can let the locked in borrow their bodies for a time. If the Integrator was carrying a Haden client, then naming the suspect for the murder becomes that much more complicated. But "complicated" doesn’t begin to describe it. As Shane and Vann began to unravel the threads of the murder, it becomes clear that the real mystery – and the real crime – is bigger than anyone could have imagined. The world of the locked in is changing, and with the change comes opportunities that the ambitious will seize at any cost. The investigation that began as a murder case takes Shane and Vann from the halls of corporate power to the virtual spaces of the locked in, and to the very heart of an emerging, surprising new human culture. It’s nothing you could have expected. John Scalzi is one of the most popular and acclaimed SF authors to emerge in the last decade. His massively successful debut Old Man’s War won him science fiction’s John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. His New York Times bestsellers include The Last Colony, Fuzzy Nation, and Redshirts; which won 2013’s Hugo Award for Best Novel. Material from his widely read blog The Whatever (whatever.scalzi.com) has also earned him two other Hugo Awards. He lives in Ohio with his wife and daughter. In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event. Thank you for supporting John Scalzi & your local independent bookstore!

About Graham Nash and Wild Tales

Graham Nash's songs defined a generation and helped shape the history of rock and roll-- he’s written over 200 songs, including such classic hits as "Carrie Anne," “On A Carousel,” "Simple Man," "Our House," “Marrakesh Express,” and "Teach Your Children." From the opening salvos of the British Rock Revolution to the last shudders of Woodstock, he has rocked and rolled wherever music mattered. Now Graham is ready to tell his story: his youth in post-war England, his early days in the British Invasion group The Hollies; becoming the lover and muse of Joni Mitchell during the halcyon years, when both produced their most introspective and important work; meeting Stephen Stills and David Crosby and reaching superstardom with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; and his enduring career as a solo musician and political activist. From London to Laurel Canyon and beyond, Wild Tales is a revealing look back at an extraordinary life--with all the highs and the lows; the love, the sex, and the jealousy; the politics; the drugs; and the insanity of a magical era of music. Thank you for supporting your local independent bookstore! It's thanks to book lovers like YOU that we're able to bring awesome authors like Graham Nash to Austin.

THE MILLERS - Where Have All the Storks Gone? (Wednesday, September 3 at 7pm)
Wednesday, September 3 at 7PM BookPeople Presents Texas Authors CHRIS & MICHELLE MILLER speaking & signing Where Have All the Storks Gone? Join us as husband and wife Chris and Michelle Miller discuss the ups and downs of fertility treatments, pregnancy, and parenthood. Reflective, funny, and insightful, their new book shares one couple's experience with infertility through a he said/she said story. Meant to be shared with the millions of couples who struggle with infertility, as well as their friends and family, Where Have All the Storks Gone? is a touching book from a couple who has gone through it all. About Where Have All the Storks Gone?:

Infertility affects one in six couples. In the midst of the frustration though, there is hope. Where Have All the Storks Gone? offers a funny, yet touching view of infertility through the voice of a couple who has gone through it all. Moments of hysterical laughter and poignant reflection mingle with appointments, drug regimens and exhaustion. After facing nearly every struggle and setback on the journey through fertility treatments, we gatheed our reflections and anecdotes together into a he said/she said story. It is our intent to give hopeful couples in any stage of treatment, and their well-meaing family member and friends, an informative and insightful picture of infertility.

About The Millers:

Chris and Michelle Miller met at a dorm room at the University of Texas in the summer of 1991. After a long, long, long courtship, they were married in 2002 and decided they were ready to expand their family in 2005. But as it usually does, life threw a curveball and neither of them won the bet of how long it would take them to get pregnant (Chris bet on 2 months, Michelle guessed 8 months). A year later, officially branded “fertility challenged,” they experienced nearly every trial and tribulation on the road to pregnancy. In 2009, they began writing their story to share with the millions of couples who struggle with infertility. Chris and Michelle live in Austin, Texas with their three children, Sydney (5), Sabrina (3) and Luke (2). In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.

CATHERINE MUSEMECHE - Small: Life and Death on the Front Lines of Pediatric Surgery (Thursday, September 4 at 7pm)
Thursday, September 4 at 7PM BookPeople Presents Pediatric Surgeon & Author Catherine Musemeche speaking & signing Small: Life and Death on the Front Lines of Pediatric Surgery We are excited to welcome pediatric surgeon Catherine Musemeche to the store! In her book, Small, we are allowed to peer over her shoulder while in the operating room as she operates on the smallest of human beings, manipulates organs the size of walnuts, and uses sutures as thin as hairs to resolve matters of life or death. Mixing personal narrative with history and surgical anatomy, Musemeche's book gives us an intimate and detailed view into the profession of saving small and precious lives. Join us as she shares her moving story! About Small: Life and Death on the Front Lines of Pediatric Surgery: As a pediatric surgeon, Catherine Musemeche operates on the smallest of human beings, manipulates organs the size of walnuts, and uses sutures as thin as hairs to resolve matters of life or death. Working in the small space of a premature infant's chest or abdomen allows no margin for error. It is a world rife with emotion and risk. Small takes readers inside this rarefied world of pediatric medicine, where children and newborns undergo surgery to resolve congenital defects or correct the damages caused by accidents and disease. It is an incredibly high-stakes endeavor, nerve-wracking and fascinating. Small: Life and Death on the Front Lines of Pediatric Surgery is a gripping story about a still little-known frontier. In writing about patients and their families, Musemeche recounts the history of the developing field of pediatric surgery--so like adult medicine in many ways, but at the same time utterly different. This is a field guide to the state of the art and science of operating on the smallest human beings, the hurts and maladies that afflict them, and the changing nature of medicine in America today, told by an exceptionally gifted surgeon and writer.

Catherine Musemeche has been an associate professor of surgery at major medical schools and hospitals and has cared for thousands of critically ill and injured children from newborns to teenagers. She has also been a guest contributor to the New York Times Motherlode column. She is a technical consultant for the forthcoming The Sensitives by documentary filmmaker Drew Xanthopoulos. In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.

LOCAL AUTHOR NIGHT: Jamie Amelio - Michael Glasscock - Christine Warren (Friday, September 5 at 7pm)
Friday, September 5 at 7PM We love our local authors here at BookPeople and tonight we're happy to welcome some of the best to the store to present their new work. Join us as Jamie Amelio, author of Graced With Orange; Michael Glasscock, author of The Life and Times of Jamie Lee Coleman; and Christine Warren, author of Honky Tonk Debutante discuss and read from their latest! About the authors:

Jamie Amelio: Texas native Jamie C. Amelio is the founder and CEO of Caring for Cambodia. While vacationing in Cambodia in 2003 she expected to be wowed by the temples of Angkor Wat. Instead, it was a little girl panhandling for a few dollars who would change her life. A few weeks later Jamie established Caring for Cambodia, which now supports 6,400 students in sixteen schools in Siem Reap. In 2005, 2010, and 2012 Jamie was awarded the prestigious Golden Hand Service Award by the Cambodian government. After living in Asia for ten years, Jamie, her husband Bill, and their six children now live in Austin, Texas.

Michael Glasscock: For the first eight years of his life Michael E. Glasscock III lived on his grandfather's cattle ranch a few miles south of the small community of Utopia, Texas. At the beginning of World War II, he moved to a small town in Tennessee not unlike the mythical Round Rock portrayed in his fiction series. Michael decided to study medicine, and he graduated from the University of Tennessee Medical School at age twenty-four. Nashville, Tennessee, was the site of his otology/neurotology practice, where he was associated with Vanderbilt University as a clinical professor, and where he continues to be part of the faculty as an adjunct professor. He retired from full-time clinical practice in 1997 and moved back to Texas where he continues to work as a consultant for three major medical device companies. He currently resides in Austin, Texas.

Christine Warren: CHRISTINE WARREN grew up in Texas and Tennessee before attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she studied Creative Writing and graduated with a degree in English. The richly layered cultures of the South and Southwest, both of which she loves and knows intimately, have profoundly shaped her as a storyteller. After working for fourteen years in marketing and consulting, Warren left corporate life in order to focus on her writing full-time. Her first book, PADDLEFISH, was published in 2011. Her second book, HONKY TONK DEBUTANTE, was released in February 2014. With her husband and teenage daughter, Christine Warren splits time between Austin, Texas and Mobile, Alabama.

All books signed at BookPeople events must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book in advance of the event, please save your BookPeople receipt and present it at the event. Thank you for supporting local authors and your local independent bookstore!

MARI MANCUSI - Shattered (Saturday, September 6 at 4pm)
Saturday, September 6th at 4pm

BookPeople Presents

Austin Author

Mari Mancusi

speaking and signing

Shattered Austin author Mari Mancusi comes to BookPeople with her latest from her Scorched series. Shattered follows Trinity, Connor, and Caleb has they try to keep their baby dragon from being discovered. If you love dragons or great books or both, no matter what this is an event you don't want to miss! About Shattered: Trinity, Connor, and Caleb are trying to stay under the radar, holed up in an abandoned West Texas farmhouse. Their only problem is Emmy: a baby dragon that's growing like crazy. When Emmy is caught on tape and the video goes viral, they find themselves on the run again. Their only hope comes from an old map leading to a man who has come from the future to help them. But with the government hot on their heels and Caleb's growing addiction to spending time in the Nether world, will they be able to reach him in time? And will keeping Emmy safe end up being too high a price for Trinity to pay?

Mari Mancusi always wanted a dragon as a pet. Unfortunately the fire insurance premiums proved a bit too large and her house a bit too small? So she chose to write about them instead. Today she works as an award-winning young adult author and freelance television producer, for which she has won two Emmys. When not writing, Mari enjoys goth clubbing, cosplay, watching cheesy (and scary) horror movies, and her favorite guilty pleasure, videogames. A graduate of Boston University, she lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and young daughter. In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.

Packed with more than 100 photographs, The Everyday Art of Gluten-Free empowers its readers to make virtually any recipe into a delicious, gluten-free version.

Karen Morgan is the "Big Bird" at Blackbird Bakery and the blogger behind blackbird-bakery.com.

Refreshments will be provided, courtesy of Saint Arnold Brewing Company and the New Writers Project.

About Remember me like this

Four years have passed since Justin Campbell’s disappearance, a tragedy that rocked the small town of Southport, Texas. Did he run away? Was he kidnapped? Did he drown in the bay? As the Campbells search for answers, they struggle to hold what’s left of their family together. Then, one afternoon, the impossible happens. The police call to report that Justin has been found only miles away, in the neighboring town, and, most important, he appears to be fine. Though the reunion is a miracle, Justin’s homecoming exposes the deep rifts that have diminished his family, the wounds they all carry that may never fully heal. Trying to return to normal, his parents do their best to ease Justin back into his old life. But as thick summer heat takes hold, violent storms churn in the Gulf and in the Campbells’ hearts. When a reversal of fortune lays bare the family’s greatest fears—and offers perhaps the only hope for recovery—each of them must fight to keep the ties that bind them from permanently tearing apart.

MARGARET FURSE - The Hawkins Ranch in Texas (Wednesday, September 10 at 7pm)
Wednesday, September 10 at 7PM BookPeople Presents Acclaimed Author MARGARET LEWIS FURSE speaking & signing The Hawkins Ranch in Texas: From Plantation Times to the Present Margaret Lewis Furse, a great-granddaughter of James B. and Ariella Hawkins and an active partner in today's Hawkins Ranch, has mined public records, family archives, and her own childhood memories to compose this sweeping portrait of more than 160 years of plantation, ranch, and small-town life. Join us this evening as Fuse gives us a glimpse of old time Texas through the lens of her personal family history. About The Hawkins Ranch in Texas: From Plantation Times to the Present:

Margaret Lewis Furse, a great-granddaughter of James B. and Ariella Hawkins and an active partner in today's Hawkins Ranch, has mined public records, family archives, and her own childhood memories to compose this sweeping portrait of more than 160 years of plantation, ranch, and small-town life. Letters sent by the Hawkinses from the Texas plantation to their North Carolina family in the mid-nineteenth century describe sugar making, the perils of cholera and fevers, the activities of children, and the "management" of slaves. Public records and personal papers reveal the experience of the Hawkins family during the Civil War, when J. B. Hawkins sold goods to the Confederacy and helped with Confederate coastal defenses near his plantation. In the 1930s, the death of their parents left the ranch in the hands of four sisters, at a time when few women owned and ran cattle operations. The Hawkins Ranch in Texas: From Plantation Times to the Present offers a panoramic view of agrarian lifeways and how they must adapt to changing times.

Margaret Lewis Furse now lives in Austin. She is a graduate of the University of Texas and holds a Ph.D. in philosophy of religion from Columbia University. She has taught in the Rice University's religious studies department and in the American studies program at the University of Texas at Austin. Furse is currently a general and managing partner of Hawkins Ranch Ltd. In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople.

MysteryPeople Presents: MINERVA KOENIG - Nine Days: A Mystery (Friday, September 12 at 7pm)
Friday, September 12 at 7PM MysteryPeople Presents Debut Author MINERVA KOENIG speaking & signing Nine Days: A Mystery About Nine Days:

She's short, round, and pushing forty, but Julia Kalas is a damned good criminal. For 17 years she renovated historic California buildings as a laundry front for her husband's illegal arms business. Then the Aryan Brotherhood made her a widow, and witness protection shipped her off to the tiny town of Azula, Texas. Also known as the Middle of Nowhere.

The Lone Star sticks are lousy with vintage architecture begging to be rehabbed. Julia figures she'll pick up where she left off, but she's got a federal watchdog now: police chief Teresa Hallstedt, who is none too happy to have another felon in her jurisdiction. Teresa wants Julia where she can keep an eye on her, which turns out to be behind the bar at the local watering hole. The bar's owner, Hector Guerra, catches Julia's eye, so she takes the job. But before she can get to know him as well as she'd like, they find a dead body on the bar's roof. Nine Days, Koenig's debut, is atmospheric, gutsy and fun, and Julia Kalas is an intriguing new heroine in crime fiction. MINERVA KOENIG is a licensed architect running her own one-woman practice. When not architecting or writing, she likes to sew, read, play chess, do yoga, dance, wrangle cats, and fight the patriarchy. Koenig lives in Austin, Texas. Nine Days is her first novel. In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.
