It's supposed to be a chance for her to pull herself together again, but when she discovers that her brother's even-more-annoying best friend is also coming on the trip, she can't imagine how it will be anything other than a disaster. Thus begins the strangest adventure of Helen's well-behaved life: three weeks in the remotest wilderness of a mountain range in Wyoming where she will survive mosquito infestations, a surprise summer blizzard, and a group of sorority girls. Yet, despite everything, the vast wilderness has a way of making Helen's own little life seem bigger, too. And, somehow the people who annoy her the most start teaching her the very things she needs to learn. Like how to stand up for herself. And how being scared can make you brave.

Book: Shortly after her sixteenth birthday, Sunshine Griffith and her mother Kat move from sunny Austin, Texas, to the rain-drenched town of Ridgemont, Washington. Though Sunshine is adopted, she and her mother have always been close, sharing a special bond filled with laughter and inside jokes. But from the moment they arrive, Sunshine feels her world darken with an eeriness she cannot place. And even if Kat doesn't recognize it, Sunshine knows that something about their new house is just ... creepy. In the days that follow, things only get stranger. Sunshine is followed around the house by an icy breeze, phantom wind slams her bedroom door shut, and eventually, the laughter Sunshine hears on her first night evolves into sobs.

UNFOLD: HOUSTON REVEALED
Brazos Bookstore, Monday, April 13 at 7pm
Brazos Bookstore will host a publication launch party for UNFOLD: HOUSTON REVEALED. UNFOLD is a product of a new Interdisciplinary Arts course at UH, taught last Fall for the first time by Associate Professor of Graphic Design Cheryl Beckett and English/Creative Writing Professor Peter Turchi, made possible by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts, and bringing together graduate and undergraduate students in Graphic Design, Creative Writing, and Art.

UNFOLD is an atlas of nine surprising and original maps meant both to reveal parts of Houston and to inspire further exploration. "Triskaidekaphobia" depicts 13 of the buildings in the Medical Center dedicated to science yet succumbing to superstition: none of them have a floor numbered 13. "Signal2Noise" charts the invisible yet highly trafficked wireless networks in four Houston neighborhoods, with names that range from mundane to comic, from vulgar to political. "Hol(e)y City" combines a visual representation of potholes surrounding Lakewood Church with quotations from scripture, sermons, and city documents speaking as if with one voice about flooding, upheaval, and the need for maintenance.

UNFOLD: HOUSTON REVEALED is published in a limited edition of 300. Copies will be available at the launch party, with proceeds benefiting Houston Habitat for Humanity.

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: Chris Cander is a novelist, children’s book author, freelance writer, and teacher for Houston-based Writers in the Schools. Her novel 11 STORIES, published by a small press in Houston, was included in Kirkus’s best indie general fiction of 2013. Book: In 1916 in Verra, an immigrant, industrial community tucked away in a West Virginia hollow, the young Myrthen Bergmann is playing tug-of-war with her twin when tragedy strikes. Wracked with guilt, Myrthen commences a twisted, haunted life dedicated to the Catholic Church and God. Meanwhile, her neighbor Alta Krol longs to be an artist, even as her days are taken up caring for her widowed father and siblings. Everything changes when Myrthen marries John, the man Alta loves. As thirty-four years go by, Myrthen is unable to cope with her conflicting roles of wife and pious believer; and Alta is unable to tear herself away from a passionate love affair with John. Desperate for a divorce that the church refuses to grant, Myrthen decides to take drastic action. The result is an unthinkable disaster that tears at the fabric of the town and marks both Myrthen and Alta forever. Fourteen years later in 1964, we meet Lidia, a teenage girl who carries a shameful secret, and her precocious son Gabriel. When Gabriel starts telling eerily prescient stories that hint at Verra’s long-buried past, the townspeople begin to suspect that the boy harbors evil spirits—an irresistible circumstance for Myrthen and her obsession with salvation. Alta, who has become an entrusted friend to Lidia, once again finds her life entangled with Myrthen’s. As the three women’s stories intertwine, each is forced to make decisions that challenge their moral convictions and ultimately alter the course of their lives. Ordering: A limited number of autographed copies of this book will be available for purchase after the event.
