D. Foy, Made to Break
Porter Square Books, Wednesday, April 16 at 7pm
"Reading D. Foy's prose is like watching Robert Stone and Wallace Stevens drag race across a frozen lake at midnight." Anthony Swofford Two days before New Years, a pack of five friends--three men and two women--head to a remote cabin near Lake Tahoe to celebrate the holidays. They've been buddies forever, banded together by scrapes and squalor, their relationships defined by these wild times. After a car accident leaves one friend sick and dying, and severe weather traps them at the cabin, there is nowhere to go, forcing them to finally and ultimately take stock and confront their past transgressions, considering what they mean to one another and to themselves. With some of the most luminous and purple prose flexed in recent memory, D. Foy is an incendiary new voice and "Made to Break," a grand, episodic debut, redolent of the stark conscience of Denis Johnson and the spellbinding vision of Roberto Bolano. D. Foy has had work published or forthcoming in BOMB, Post Road, the Literary Review, the Georgia Review, Forty Stories: New Writing from Harper Perennial, and Laundromat, an homage to photographs of laundromats throughout New York City.

Barbara Ehrenreich, Living with a Wild God at the Cambridge Public Library, in conversation with John Summers
Porter Square Books, Thursday, April 17 at 6:30pm
Join Porter Square Books at the Cambridge Public Library for Barbara Ehrenreich in conversation with John Summers. In middle age, Ehrenreich came across the journal she had kept during her tumultuous adolescence and set out to reconstruct that quest, which had taken her to the study of science and through a cataclysmic series of uncanny-or as she later learned to call them, "mystical"-experiences. A staunch atheist and rationalist, she is profoundly shaken by the implications of her life-long search. Part memoir, part philosophical and spiritual inquiry, Living with a Wild God brings an older woman's wry and erudite perspective to a young girl's uninhibited musings on the questions that, at one point or another, torment us all. Ehrenreich's most personal book ever will spark a lively and heated conversation about religion and spirituality, science and morality, and the "meaning of life." Living with a Wild God combines intellectual rigor with a frank account of the inexplicable, in Ehrenreich's singular voice, to produce a true literary achievement. Barbara Ehrenreich is the author of fourteen books, including the bestselling Nickel and Dimed and Bait and Switch. She lives in Virginia. John Summers is the editor in chief of The Baffler and founder and president of the Baffler Foundation. He’s the author of an essay collection, Every Fury on Earth, and editor of three collections of cultural criticism: The Politics of Truth: Selected Writings of C. Wright Mills, Dwight Macdonald’s Masscult and Midcult, and James Agee’s Cotton Tenants. He received his PhD in intellectual history from the University of Rochester in 2006. From 2000 to 2007 he taught social studies at Harvard University. He still lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Please Note: This is an offsite event at the Cambridge Public Library.

Judith Nies, Unreal City: Las Vegas, Black Mesa, and the Fate of the West
Porter Square Books, Thursday, April 17 at 7pm
An epic struggle over land, water, and power is erupting in the American West and the halls of Washington, DC. It began when a 4,000-square-mile area of Arizona desert called Black Mesa was divided between the Hopi and Navajo tribes. To the outside world, it was a land struggle between two fractious Indian tribes; to political insiders and energy corporations, it was a divide-and-conquer play for the 21 billion tons of coal beneath Black Mesa. Today, that coal powers cheap electricity for Los Angeles, a new water aqueduct into Phoenix, and the neon dazzle of Las Vegas. Journalist and historian Judith Nies has been tracking this story for nearly four decades. She follows the money and tells us the true story of wealth and water, mendacity, and corruption at the highest levels of business and government. Amid the backdrop of the breathtaking desert landscape, "Unreal City" shows five cultures colliding--Hopi, Navajo, global energy corporations, Mormons, and US government agencies--resulting in a battle over resources and the future of the West. Las Vegas has much to teach us in an era of climate change. The desert city may still attract 39 million visitors a year, but tourists don’t see a city with the highest rates of foreclosure, unemployment, or suicide in the nation. They don’t see the astonishing drop in the water level of Lake Mead, or follow the route of “the new Chinatown,” a multi-billion dollar water-pipeline into a mountain aquifer 200-miles north. The same mining and construction companies operate globally and are spending millions to convince us that climate change isn’t happening and coal can be “clean.” But for Las Vegas, and for the United States, the mirage of limitless supply and limitless wealth. Judith Nies is the award-winning author of three nonfiction books- The Girl I Left Behind: A Personal History of the 1960s, Nine women: Portraits from the American Radical Tradition, and Native American history: A Chronology, which won the Phi Alpha Theta prize in international history. Nies’s journalism, book reviews, and essays have appeared in the New York Times, The Boston Globe, Orion, Harvard Review, Women’s Review of Books, and American Voice. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Kristin Bair O'Keeffe, "The Art of Floating (Andover)
Andover Bookstore, Thursday, April 17 at 7pm
When her beloved husband Jackson disappeared without a trace, popular novelist Sia Dane stopped writing, closed down her house, stuffed her heart into a cage, and started floating. It wasn’t the normal response to heartache, but Sia rarely did things the normal way.

Exactly one year, one month, and six days after Jackson’s disappearance, Sia discovers a mysterious man on the beach. He’s mute, unresponsive, and looks as if he has just walked out of the sea. It’s the sort of situation Jackson would have solved with a simple call to the police. But Jackson is gone. As unreal as he seems, Sia is determined to help this man. Perhaps she can return him to his place in the world—to whoever lost him and loves him. Perhaps she can answer their questions the way no one could answer hers. But as her friends and family help her winnow her way to the truth, Sia comes to realize that the unfathomable leap between sorrow and healing begins with a single step. Kristin Bair O’Keeffe is the author of the novel Thirsty, as well as numerous essays about China, bears, and off-the-plot expats. She lives in Andover, Massachusetts, with her husband and daughter and travels to anywhere as often as she can.

Steven Cohen, The Practical Negotiator
Porter Square Books, Tuesday, April 22 at 7pm
“Steven Cohen’s book, The Practical Negotiator is a well-written practical guide to the art and science of negotiation. Reflecting the voice of a highly skilled negotiation trainer and mentor, this “hands on” primer offers a nuanced understanding of the benefits and opportunities resulting from an interest-based approach to negotiations. I found the author’s practical advice, offered in a concise Q and A format, to be pure gold.” Bennett G. Picker, Esquire, author of Mediation Practice Guide “A treasure trove filled with golden nuggets, based on sound, practical advice and deep understanding of how best to handle negotiations. Cohen’s extensive international experience shines through, and the wide range of real-life situations covered, makes this a book to refer back to again and again.” Brian Gosschalk, Head of Presidents’ Office, Ipsos Steven P. Cohen’s careers in government and politics, in real estate development and management, and as a negotiation consultant for many of the largest businesses in the world have given him ample opportunity to hone both his own negotiating skills and those of his clients and students. In addition to his private sector consulting, he has been a professor since the mid-1990s at Groupe HEC (Paris) and Brandeis University’s International Business School (Boston), as well as a visiting professor at other business schools in the United States and several European countries.

Frannie Lindsay and Gwen Jensen, Our Vanishing and Birthright
Porter Square Books, Wednesday, April 23 at 7pm
“Endlessly inventive and packed with small surprises, these poems turn the ordinary inside-out. Their quiet elegance belies their urgency, always underlying and makes the language all the more powerful for its restraint…Frannie Lindsay is among the very best of her generation, and Our vanishing is one of the most honest, moving books I’ve read in years.” Chase Twitchell "Birthright is a collection of poetry begs to be read again and again, with the poet's masterful use of rhythm and form, of repetition..." Comstock Review Frannie Lindsay’s previous volumes of poetry are Mayweed, Lamb, and Where She Always Was. Her awards include the Washington Prize, the Perugia Award, the May Swensen Award, and The Missouri Review Prize. Her work has been featured in Ted Kooser’s column “American Life in Poetry,” and on Writer’s Almanac and Poetry Daily. She has held fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and has received several Pushcart nominations. Gwendolyn Jensen’s first book of poetry is Birthright. Her poems have been widely published in both electronic and print journals, including The Beloit Poetry Journal, The Harvard Review, Tears in the fence, The Malahat Review, Measure, Salamander, and Sanskrit Literary Arts Magazine. She serves as a board member of Off the Grid Press. Her second book, As if toward beauty, will be published some time next year.
