Andrew Shaffer discussing and signing Hope Rides Again: An Obama Biden Mystery
Joseph-Beth Booksellers - Cincinnati, Tuesday, July 23 at 7pm
Following a long but successful book tour, Joe Biden has one more stop before he can return home: Chicago. His old pal Barack Obama has invited him to meet a wealthy benefactor whose endorsement could turn the tide for Joe if he decides to run for president. The two friends barely have time to catch up before another mystery lands in their laps: Obama's prized Blackberry is stolen. When their number-one suspect winds up full of lead on the South Side, the police are content to write it off as just another gangland shooting. But Joe and Obama smell a rat...Set against the backdrop of a raucous city on St. Patrick's Day, Joe and Obama race to find the shooter, only to uncover a vast conspiracy that goes deeper than the waters of Lake Michigan—which is exactly where they'll spend the rest of their retirement if they're not careful.

John Kachuba discussing and signing Shapeshifters: A History
Joseph-Beth Booksellers - Cincinnati, Wednesday, July 24 at 7pm
Real or imaginary, shapeshifters lurk deep in our psyches and remain formidable cultural icons. The myths, magic, and meaning surrounding shapeshifters are brought vividly to life in John B. Kachuba's compelling and original cultural history. Rituals in early cultures worldwide seemingly allowed shamans, sorcerers, witches, and wizards to transform at will into animals and back again. Featuring a fantastic and ghoulish array of examples from history, literature, film, TV, and computer games, "Shapeshifters" explores our secret desire to become something other than human.

An Evening with Jasmine Guillory & Kerry Winfrey
Joseph-Beth Booksellers - Cincinnati, Friday, July 26 at 7pm
Join us for an evening with Jasmine Guillory, bestselling author of "The Proposal" and the new book "The Wedding Party", and Kerry Winfrey, acclaimed author of "Waiting for Tom Hanks"!

In "The Wedding Party", Maddie and Theo have two things in common: 1. Alexa is their best friend. 2. They hate each other. After an "oops, we made a mistake" night together, neither one can stop thinking about the other. While helping Alexa plan her wedding, they decide to have their own secret affair, but just until the wedding. Because two people this different can't possibly have a connection other than the purely physical—right?

In "Waiting for Tom Hanks", rom-com-obsessed Annie spends her days writing internet content, rewatching "Sleepless in Seattle", and waiting for her own Tom Hanks—a man who's sweet, sensitive, and possibly owns a houseboat. When a movie starts filming in her neighborhood, Annie meets the lead actor, Drew Danforth, a cocky prankster who couldn't be less like Tom Hanks if he tried. Their meet-cute is more of a meet annoying, but soon Annie finds herself sharing some classic rom-com moments with Drew. Her Tom Hanks can't be an actor who's leaving town in a matter of days...can he? (archaism)

Tony Saldahna discussing and signing Why Digital Transformations Fail: The Surprising Disciplines of How to Take Off and Stay Ahead
Joseph-Beth Booksellers - Cincinnati, Saturday, July 27 at 6pm
Digital transformation is more important than ever now that we're in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, where the lines between the physical, digital, and biological worlds are becoming ever more blurred. But fully 70 percent of digital transformations fail. Why? Tony Saldanha, a globally awarded industry thought-leader who led operations around the world and major digital changes at Procter & Gamble, discovered it's not due to innovation or technological problems. Rather, the devil is in the details: a lack of clear goals and a disciplined process for achieving them. In this book, Saldanha lays out a five-stage process for moving from digitally automating processes here and there to making digital technology the very backbone of your company. For each of these five stages, Saldanha describes two associated disciplines vital to the success of that stage and a checklist of questions to keep you on track. (archaism)… (more)

Casey Cep discussing and signing Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee
Joseph-Beth Booksellers - Cincinnati, Monday, August 5 at 7pm
Willie Maxwell was a Baptist reverend in Alabama; he also happened to be a serial killer. With the help of a savvy lawyer, Maxwell escaped justice for years - until, at the funeral of one of his victims, the victim's uncle shot the Reverend dead in a church full of witnesses and was subsequently acquitted of the murder, thanks to the same savvy lawyer who had represented the Reverend for all those years. Sitting in the audience during the trial was Harper Lee, who had traveled from New York to her native Alabama with an idea of writing a book about the case. Now, Casey Cep brings this nearly inconceivable, gripping story to life on the page: a vividly told, elegiac account of Harper Lee's quest to write a second book after "To Kill a Mockingbird", and a deeply moving portrait of this beloved writer's struggle with fame, success, and the mysteries of artistic creativity.

With prosecutor Mabel Walker Willebrandt and investigator Franklin Dodge determined to bring him down, Remus is imprisoned for violating the Volstead Act. Her husband behind bars, Imogene begins an affair with Dodge.

Nestled in the mountain shadows of Alabama lies the little town of Wicklow. Anna Kate has returned to bury her beloved Granny Zee, owner of the Blackbird Café. It was supposed to be a quick trip to close the café and settle her grandmother's estate, but despite her best intentions to avoid forming ties or even getting to know her father's side of the family, Anna Kate finds herself inexplicably drawn to the quirky Southern town her mother ran away from so many years ago, and the mysterious blackbird pie everybody can't stop talking about. As the truth about her past slowly becomes clear, Anna Kate will need to decide if this lone blackbird will finally be able to take her broken wings and fly. (archaism)… (more)

Dann Woellert discussing and signing Cincinnati Goetta: A Delectable History
Joseph-Beth Booksellers - Cincinnati, Thursday, August 15 at 7pm
Cincinnati loves goetta. Since its arrival with nineteenth-century Germanic immigrants, this humble dish has evolved from peasant staple to ubiquitous delicacy. Once upon a time, Cincinnatians found goetta mostly in neighborhood butcher shops, in Over-the-Rhine's so-called Goetta Alley and through Sander Packing, its first commercial producer. Now hungry locals scarf it down at diners and white-linen establishments alike and in everything from egg rolls to Reuben sandwiches. Tracing goetta from its Germanic origins and its first stop in Greater Cincinnati to its largest commercial producers, Queen City Sausage and Gliers, food etymologist and "Goettevangelist" Dann Woellert explores goetta's history in the city that made it regionally famous.

Join us for an evening with Joe Sacksteder! Readers of his award-winning first book "Make/Shift" will find themselves confronting moments in which status and ceremony are shown to be destabilized, contingent—sorting through the suddenly unfamiliar contents of a time capsule, hanging poolside with parents while their hockey player sons devastate a hotel, and wandering the memory palace of a traumatized valedictorian during a commencement address—all while flash vignettes based on corporate slogans saturate the story collection with greater and greater frequency, like the commercials of a TV movie.
