Julene Bair will discuss her Kansas farm life and book The Ogallala Road: A Memoir of Love and Reckoning
Rainy Day Books- Fairway, Thursday, April 24 at 7pm
EVENT OVERVIEW: Julene Bair will discuss her new book The Ogallala Road: A Memoir of Love and Reckoning. This event is co-sponsored by The Kansas Land Trust and Rainy Day Books.

ABOUT JULENE BAIR: Julene Bair is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and the Iowa Nonfiction Writing Program. Her essay collection, One Degree West, won several regional awards and was a finalist for the Mountains and Plains Booksellers Award. She has taught at the University of Wyoming and the University of Iowa. She lives in Longmont, Colorado.

ABOUT The Ogallala Road: A Memoir of Love and Reckoning: In this thoughtful consideration of life at a crossroads, Bair tackles questions about single parenthood, romance, and the monumental task of determining the future of the family farm. Bair grew up steeped deeply in Kansas farming, but her life has taken her far away in more ways than one. A woman facing midlife alone with a teenage son, she finds herself falling into an unexpected love affair at the same time her father's death forces changes to the family farm. In the midst of the more prosaic tasks of land management, she recounts her long concerns with the demands farming places on the land, especially the Ogallala aquifer. Threaded throughout each chapter are her travels along the Ogallala's path as she puzzles out the changes the water table has suffered and challenges old agricultural traditions that continue to persist in defiance of logic. Bair's measured approach to her family's ultimate decision about the farm provides readers in a nonrural setting with a thoughtful look into America's heartland. Book groups will find much to discuss here, from love to family to the big questions we all must face about how we live now.

DATE & TIME: Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 7:00 PM.

LOCATION: Unity Temple on The Plaza, Sanctuary 707 W. 47th Street, Kansas City, MO 64112

Terry Wahls, M.D., will present The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine
Rainy Day Books- Fairway, Monday, April 28 at 7pm
EVENT OVERVIEW: Terry Wahls, M.D., will appear In Conversation with Loren Halifax, Fox 4 Morning Show Host, about Terry's New Book The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine. ABOUT DR. TERRY WAHLS: Terry Wahls M.D., is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City. She has made it her mission to spread the word about The Wahls Protocol through her New Book, her Lectures, her Website, and Food as Medicine Classes. She lives in Iowa City with her wife and daughter. Her son, Zach Wahls, is the Author of The New York Times Bestseller My Two Moms. ABOUT THE WAHLS PROTOCOL: An integrative approach to healing chronic autoimmune conditions by a Doctor, Researcher, and sufferer of Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Like many physicians, Terry Wahls, M.D., focused on treating her patients’ ailments with drugs or surgical procedures, until she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 2000. Within three Years, her back and stomach muscles had weakened to the point where she needed a tilt-recline wheelchair. Conventional medical treatments were failing her, and she feared that she would be bedridden for the rest of her life. Dr. Wahls began studying the latest research on autoimmune disease and brain biology, and decided to get her vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids from the food she ate rather than pills and supplements. Dr. Wahl’s adopted the nutrient-rich paleo diet, gradually refining and integrating it into a regimen of neuromuscular stimulation. First, she walked slowly, then steadily, and then she biked eighteen miles in a single Day. In November 2011, Dr. Wahls shared her remarkable recovery in a TEDx talk that immediately went viral. Now, in The Wahls Protocol, she shares the details of the protocol that allowed her to reverse many of her symptoms, get back to her life, and embark on a new mission: to share The Wahls Protocol with others suffering from the ravages of multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune conditions.

Red Green (How to Do Everything, Red Green's Beginner's Guide to Women, Red Green's Beginner's Guide to Women, The Green Red Green)

Red Green is the leader of Possum Lodge, Chapter 11, a northern Ontario eyesore. He is friendly, inventive, cheap and as honest as the day is long, which means he's the least honest on December 21. When he works on his handyman projects, Red is not stupid, he's impatient. So he uses duct tape to "buy time." Red Green is the star of The Red Green Show, which had first runs in Canada and the US from 1991 until 2006, making it the longest running live-action scripted comedy in the world. It continues to be enormously popular in reruns here and in the States. Red Green is the creation of Canadian comedian and writer Steve Smith. (added from Random House)… (more)

Jordan D. Metzl, MD, will present The Exercise Cure: A Doctor's All-Natural, No-Pill Prescription for Better Health and Longer Life
Rainy Day Books- Fairway, Thursday, May 1 at 7pm
EVENT OVERVIEW: Jordan D. Metzl, MD, will Present his New Book The Exercise Cure: A Doctor's All-Natural, No-Pill Prescription for Better Health and Longer Life. Co-Sponsored by Rainy Day Books and The University of Kansas Medical Center.

ABOUT JORDAN D. METZL, MD: Jordan D. Metzl, MD, is a Graduate of Barstow School and the Author of The Athlete’s Book of Home Remedies and a nationally known Sports Medicine Physician at New York City’s Hospital for Special Surgery. He appears regularly on the esteemed New York Magazine’s Top Doctors List. Prior to joining New York City Hospital for Special Surgery, Dr. Metzl completed his Fellowship in Sports Medicine and Dance Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital. He lives in New York City.

ABOUT THE EXERCISE CURE: What if there were a drug to treat every illness, across all body systems, proven potent against heart disease, depression, arthritis, PMS and erectile dysfunction, even in chronic diseases such as asthma, dementia, and certain types of cancer? What if it had no side effects, was completely free, readily available, and worked for everyone? Every single person who took it decreased her risk of premature death and raised his quality of life. Would you want it? In a healthcare system that spends 17% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), roughly $2.7 Trillion, mostly on disease treatment, how do we save money and prevent illness? By increasing the use of the world’s most effective preventive medicine: exercise. Jordan D. Metzl, MD, explains how everyone can maximize their daily dose in his groundbreaking New Book, The Exercise Cure. In The Exercise Cure, Dr. Metzl, nationally renowned Sports Medicine Physician offers malady-specific and well-researched exercise prescriptions to help readers stay healthy, heal disease, drop pounds, increase longevity, and transform their lives. Today’s medical system is largely focused on fixing rather than preventing problems, and many treatments carry significant side effects. Cholesterol-lowering drugs are linked to frequent muscle and joint problems, anti-hypertensive drugs like Beta-blockers cause headaches and diminished energy, and Prozac and other popular anti-depressant medications carry multiple consequences including sexual dysfunction. Dr. Metzl knows that exercise is inexpensive, powerful medicine that has benefits in prevention and treatment of disease without disturbing side effects. Even in older adults, daily exercise has been found to prevent dementia by generating neuron development in the hippocampus, the memory center of the brain. Combining the latest data and his proven motivational skills, Dr. Metzl addresses the common maladies troubling millions. He discusses our cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic, musculoskeletal, neurologic, reproductive, and endocrinologic body systems, with special sections on sleep problems and cancer prevention, presenting the science behind the role of exercise as medicine. Then, he details fun, fat-torching, life-prolonging workouts that can be tailored easily to any fitness level, beginner to advanced, and provides nutritional information, including meal plans for healthy eating and disease prevention, as well.

Chelsea Handler will Autograph "Uganda Be Kidding Me" at Rainy Day Books on Friday, May 2, 2014 at 2:00 PM
Rainy Day Books- Fairway, Friday, May 2 at 2pm
Uganda Be Kidding Me will be for Sale on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 at Rainy Day Books! EVENT OVERVIEW: Chelsea Handler, New York Times Bestselling Author and Host of Chelsea Lately, will meet fans & readers and Autograph * Hardcovers of Uganda Be Kidding Me!

About Chelsea Handler: Chelsea Handler is an accomplished stand-up Comic and Actor, as well as the Bestselling Author of My Horizontal Life, Are You There Vodka? It's Me Chelsea, and Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang. She is the star of her own late-night show on E!, Chelsea Lately; was one of the stars of Girls Behaving Badly; has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with David Letterman; and has starred in her own half-hour Comedy Central special. Chelsea makes regular appearances in comedy clubs across America and she lives in Los Angeles.

About Uganda Be Kidding Me: Wherever Chelsea Handler travels, one thing is certain: she always ends up in the land of the ridiculous. Now, in this uproarious collection, she sneaks her sharp wit through airport security and delivers her most absurd and hilarious stories ever. On safari in Africa, it's anyone's guess as to what's more dangerous: the wildlife or Chelsea. But whether she's fumbling the seduction of a guide by not knowing where tigers live (Asia, duh) or wearing a bathrobe into the bush because her clothes stopped fitting seven margaritas ago, she's always game for the next misadventure. The situation gets down and dirty as she defiles a kayak in the Bahamas, and outright sweaty as she escapes from a German hospital on crutches. When things get truly scary, like finding herself stuck next to a passenger with bad breath, she knows she can rely on her family to make matters even worse. Thank goodness she has the devoted Chunk by her side-except for the time she loses him in Telluride. Complete with answers to the most frequently asked traveler's questions, hot travel trips, and travel etiquette, none of which should be believed, Uganda Be Kidding Me has Chelsea taking on the world, one laugh-out-loud incident at a time.

EVENT FORMAT: Chelsea Handler will meet fans & readers and she will Autograph * Hardcovers of Uganda Be Kidding Me that are purchased from Rainy Day Books, on our Website and / or at our Author Event, that are accompanied by a Stamped Autographing Admission Ticket.

ABOUT BETH HOFFMAN: Beth Hoffman is also the Author of The New York Times Bestseller, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt. She was the President and Co-Owner of an interior design studio in Cincinnati before becoming a full-time Writer. She lives with her husband and two cats in northern Kentucky.

Now her flair for evocative settings and richly drawn Southern personalities shines again in her compelling second novel, Looking for Me. Teddi Overman found her life’s passion in turning other people’s castoffs into beautifully restored antiques.

Ruth Reichl, Legendary Food Writer, will celebrate her Debut Novel, Delicious!
Rainy Day Books- Fairway, Wednesday, May 14 at 11:30am
EVENT OVERVIEW: Ruth Reichl, Legndary Food Writer, will present her Debut Novel Delicious! This Event is Co-Sponsored by Rainy Day Books and the Friends of the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired (CCVI).

ABOUT RUTH REICHL: Ruth Reichl was born and raised in Greenwich Village. She wrote her first cookbook at 21, and went on to be the restaurant critic of both the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times. She was Editor-in-Chief of Gourmet Magazine for ten years. She now lives with her husband in upstate New York. She is the author of several books including the highly acclaimed, national bestselling memoir Tender at the Bone.

ABOUT DELICIOUS!: A NOVEL: At the heart of this book is an unforgettable character—Billie Breslin—who leaves California for New York to start a new job at a food magazine and to begin a new life, leaving behind her family, and a heartbreaking mystery about her beloved sister. Reichl carries the reader to the colorful world of downtown New York restaurateurs and artisanal purveyors, and from the bustling food shop in Little Italy where Billie works on weekends to a hidden room in the magazine’s library where she discovers intriguing letters written by a girl in Ohio to James Beard over 50 years ago. Little does Billy know that these letters will soon change her life forever. Weaving together a love story, a family tragedy, and the search to uncover secrets from the past and the present, DELICIOUS! explores themes of reinvention, identity, and independence. Ruth Reichl has given us a beautiful coming of age story and has proven once again that food defines us and brings us together. It is an exciting and fun novel, even as it eloquently makes the case that it is those closest to us who most often elude us.

Alex Grecian, Author of The Devil's Workshop and Will Thomas, Author of Fatal Enquiry
Rainy Day Books- Fairway, Wednesday, May 28 at 7pm
EVENT OVERVIEW: An Evening of Mystery featuring two Bestselling Authors: Alex Grecian, author of The Devil’s Workshop, and Will Thomas, author of Fatal enquiry. ABOUT ALEX GRECIAN: Alex Grecian is the Author of the New York Times Bestselling Scotland Yard mysteries The Yard and The Black Country, as well as the long-running and critically acclaimed graphic novel series Proof. He lives in the Midwest with his wife and son. ABOUT THE DEVIL’S WORKSHOP: London, 1890. Four vicious murderers have escaped from prison, part of a plan gone terribly wrong, and now it is up to Walter Day, Nevil Hammersmith, and the rest of Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad to hunt down the convicts before the men can resume their bloody spree. But they might already be too late. The killers have retribution in mind, and one of them is heading straight toward a member of the Murder Squad, and his family. And that isn’t even the worst of it. During the escape, the killers have stumbled upon the location of another notorious murderer, one thought gone for good but now prepared to join forces with them. Jack the Ripper is loose in London once more. ABOUT Will Thomas: Will Thomas is the author of Some Danger Involved, the first novel featuring Cyrus Barker and Thomas Llewelyn, and now a Barry and Shamus Award nominee. He lives with his family in Oklahoma. ABOUT Fatal enquiry: Brimming with wit, atmosphere, and unforgettable characters, Fatal enquiry reintroduces private enquiry agent Cyrus Barker and his assistant, Thomas Llewellyn, and their unforgettable world of Victorian London. Some years ago, Cyrus Barker matched wits with Sebastian Nightwine, an aristocrat and sociopath, and in exposing his evil, sent Nightwine fleeing to hide from justice somewhere in the far corners of the earth. The last thing Barker ever expected was to encounter Nightwine again—but the British government, believing they need Nightwine’s help, has granted him immunity for his past crimes, and brought him back to London. Nightwine, however, has more on his mind than redemption—and as Barker and Llewellyn set out to uncover and thwart Nightwine’s real scheme, they find themselves in the gravest danger of their lives.
