Rick Steves - Broadening Your Global Perspective Through Travel
Brazos Bookstore, Thursday, March 5 at 6pm
Join us for a special presentation by travel expert Rick Steves at the Christ Church Cathedral (Episcopal)! This event is a partnership between Brazos Bookstore and Houston Public Media.

Rick Steves--author of over 50 European travel guidebooks and host of the public television series, Rick Steves' Europe--believes that thoughtful travel expands our world view and shapes how we address the challenges confronting our nation politically. Having spent four months a year overseas for the last 30 years, Rick feels that travel helps us “challenge truths we were raised to think were self-evident and God-given.” His lectures, TV shows, and guidebooks have helped millions of Americans not only enjoy maximum travel thrills per mile, minute and euro…but become better citizens of our planet. Rick shares how the other 96 percent of humanity sees our nation and explores how his social activism has grown naturally out of his travel experiences.

Each $5 ticket admits one person and can be picked up at Brazos Bookstore or at the event. (Doors open at 5 p.m.) Signed copies of Rick Steves' travel as a political act will be available for purchase, but there will be no book signing.

Becky Wallace
Blue Willow Bookshop, Saturday, March 7 at 2pm
What: Becky Wallace will discuss and sign her debut novel THE STORY SPINNER, the first book in THE KEEPER’S CHRONICLES series for young adults. When: Saturday, March 7, 2:00 pm Where: Blue Willow Bookshop, 14532 Memorial Drive, Houston, TX 77079 Admission: In order to go through the signing line and meet Becky Wallace, please purchase THE STORY SPINNER from Blue Willow Bookshop. At the time of your purchase, we will issue a signing line ticket that indicates your place in line. Your book and signing line ticket can be picked up at the event. About the Author: Becky Wallace grew up in house full of stories with people who loved them. Her parents, both school teachers, only took her books away when it was very late at night--and usually pretended not to notice when she read by flashlight. She wrote and directed her first princess-related play in sixth grade, started her first "romance" novel in seventh, and penned a binder full of bad poetry in high school. She's very grateful all those manuscripts have been lost. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Public Relations and worked in minor league baseball as a journalist and in sports marketing. She was lucky enough to find and marry a real-life prince charming. They have four little munchkins and are living out their own happily-ever-after in Houston, Texas. Book: Drama and danger abound in this fantasy realm where dukes play a game for the throne, magical warriors race to find the missing heir, and romance blossoms where it is least expected. In a world where dukes plot their way to the throne, a Performer's life can get tricky. And in Johanna Von Arlo's case, it can be fatal. Expelled from her troupe after her father's death, Johanna is forced to work for the handsome Lord Rafael DeSilva. Too bad they don't get along. But while Johanna's father's death was deemed an accident, the Keepers aren't so sure. The Keepers, a race of people with magical abilities, are on a quest to find the princess--the same princess who is supposed to be dead and whose throne the dukes are fighting over. But they aren't the only ones looking for her. And in the wake of their search, murdered girls keep turning up--girls who look exactly like the princess, and exactly like Johanna. With dukes, Keepers, and a killer all after the princess, Johanna finds herself caught up in political machinations for the throne, threats on her life, and an unexpected romance that could change everything.

Blast from the Past Tour
Blue Willow Bookshop, Tuesday, March 10 at 5pm
What: It’s the Blast from the Past tour – middle grade authors Jo Whittemore (Colonial Madness) and Cory Putnam Oakes (Dinosaur Boy) will meet and greet customers. When: Tuesday, March 10, 5:00 pm Where: Blue Willow Bookshop, 14532 Memorial Drive, Houston, TX 77079 About the Authors: Jo Whittemore loves to make people laugh. Her latest works include the tween humor novels Colonial Madness, D IS FOR DRAMA, ODD GIRL IN, and FRONT PAGE FACE-OFF, as well as the upcoming CONFIDENTIALLY YOURS series. Jo lives and writes in Austin, Texas. Cory Putman Oakes is a children’s book author from Austin, Texas. Her middle grade debut, Dinosaur Boy, comes out in February 2015 with its sequel, Dinosaur Boy SAVES MARS, to follow in February 2016. She is also the author of THE VEIL (a young adult novel). Book: In Colonial Madness, Tori Porter is best friends with her mom, and most of the time it's awesome. Not many girls have a mom who'd take them to a graveyard for hide-and-seek or fill the bathtub with ice cream for the world's biggest sundae. But as much as Tori loves having fun, she sometimes wishes her mom would act a little more her age. Like now. Thanks to her mom's poor financial planning, they are in danger of losing their business and their home. But an unusual opportunity arises in the form of a bizarre type of contest put on by an eccentric relative: Whoever can survive two weeks in the Archibald Family's colonial manor will inherit the property. The catch? Contestants have to live as in colonial times: no modern conveniences, no outside help, and daily tests of their abilities to survive challenges of the time period. Tori thinks it's the perfect answer to their debt problems, but she and her mom aren't the only ones interested. The other family members seem to be much more prepared for the two weeks on the manor--and it doesn't help that Mom doesn't seem to be taking the contest seriously. Do they stand a chance? In Dinosaur Boy, it isn't a complete surprise when Sawyer sprouts spikes and a tail before the start of fifth grade. After all, his grandfather was part stegosaurus. Despite the Principal's Zero Tolerance Policy, Sawyer becomes a bully magnet, befriended only by Elliot aka "Gigantor" and the weird new girl. When the bullies start disappearing, Sawyer is relieved-until he discovers a secret about the principal that's more shocking than Dino DNA. The bullies are in for a galactically horrible fate...and it's up to Sawyer and his friends to rescue the day.
