LAUNCH: Sabaa Tahir

Tuesday, April 28, 7:00 p.m.

An ember in the ashes

Please join us as we host a very special launch party for local author, Sabaa Tahir.

"I was so engrossed with this book that I missed a connecting flight. If that doesn't convince you to read An ember in the ashes, I don't know what will. An explosive, heartbreaking, epic debut that will keep you glued to the pages." –Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of Legend

Set in a terrifyingly brutal Rome-like world, An ember in the ashes is an epic fantasy debut about an orphan fighting for her family and a soldier fighting for his freedom. It’s a story that’s literally burning to be told.

Laia is a Scholar living under the iron-fisted rule of the Martial Empire. When her brother is arrested for treason, Laia goes undercover as a slave at the empire’s greatest military academy in exchange for assistance from rebel Scholars who claim that they will help to save her brother from execution. Elias is the academy’s finest soldier— and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias is considering deserting the military, but before he can, he’s ordered to participate in a ruthless contest to choose the next Martial emperor. When their paths cross at the academy, they find that their destinies are more intertwined than either could have imagined and that their choices will change the future of the empire itself. Sabaa will be in conversation with Evelyn Skye.

A Dangerous Place: A Maisie Dobbs Novel Tickets are available at Kepler's and online at Brown Paper Tickets

When Jacqueline visited us in July of 2014, she announced the upcoming publication of the newest book in the Maisie Dobbs series. We are so pleased to announce that we will be celebrating the release of it with a reading by Jacqueline only two days after the publication date.

Spring 1937. In the four years since she left England, Maisie Dobbs has experienced love, contentment, stability and the deepest tragedy a woman can endure. Now, all she wants is the peace she believes she might find by returning to India. But her sojourn is cut short when her stepmother summons her home to England; her aging father Frankie Dobbs is not getting any younger.

But on a ship bound for England, Maisie realizes she isn't ready to return, so she disembarks in Gibraltar. Days after Maisie's arrival, a photographer and member of Gibraltar's Sephardic Jewish community, Sebastian Babayoff, is murdered, and Maisie becomes entangled in the case, drawing the attention of the British Secret Service. Under the suspicious eye of a British agent, Maisie is pulled deeper into political intrigue and renews an uneasy acquaintance in the process. At a crossroads between her past and her future, Maisie must choose a direction, knowing that England is, for her, an equally dangerous place, but in quite a different way.

Jacqueline has won numerous awards, including the Agatha Award for Best Novel, and since An Incomplete Revenge was published in 2008, each of her novels has been an instant New York Times and National Bestseller.

The Wolf and the Watchman by Scott Johnson

Growing up, Scott C. Johnson always suspected that his father was different. Only as a teenager did he discover the truth: his father was a spy, one of the CIA s most trusted officers. At first the secret was thrilling. But over time Scott began to have doubts. How could a man so rigorously trained to deceive and manipulate simply turn off those skills at home? His father had been living a double life for so long that his lies were hard to separate from the truth.

Early Warning

Pulitzer Prize winning author Jane Smiley brings us the second volume in The Last Hundred Years trilogy, which started with Some luck, long-listed for the National Book award. Come help us celebrate the publication of Early Warning, the book that chronicles the Langdon's family journey through mid-century America.

Early Warning opens in 1953 with the Langdons at a crossroads. Without spoiling it for those of you who haven't read Some luck, the five Langdon children are left looking to the future. One remains to work the Iowa farm, while the others scatter to Washington, DC, California, and everywhere in between.

The Langdon children then have children of their own: twin boys who are best friends and vicious rivals; a girl whose rebellious spirit takes her to the notorious Peoples Temple in San Francisco; and a golden boy who drops out of college to fight in Vietnam—leaving behind a secret legacy that will send shockwaves through the Langdon family into the next generation.

The book captures an indelible period in America - the Cold War, the social and sexual revolutions of the 1960s and '70s, and the unprecedented wealth of the early '80s - through the lens of richly drawn characters we come to know and love.

Jane Smiley is the author of numerous novels, including A Thousand Acres, which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. A member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, she has also received the PEN USA Lifetime Achievement Award for Literature.

In the tradition of The Power of Habit and Thinking, Fast and Slow comes a practical, playful, and endlessly fascinating guide to what we really know about learning and memory today—and how we can apply it to our own lives.

“This book is a revelation. I feel as if I’ve owned a brain for fifty-four years and only now discovered the operating manual.”—Mary Roach, bestselling author of Stiff and Gulp
