Peter Heller, the bestselling, critically acclaimed Colorado author of The Painter and The Dog Stars, will read from and sign his highly anticipated new book Celine ($25.95 Knopf). Combining the exquisite plotting and gorgeous evocation of nature that have become his hallmarks, Peter Heller gives us a luminous, masterful novel of suspense -- the story of Celine, an elegant, aristocratic private eye who specializes in reuniting families while trying to make amends for a loss in her own past.

Wednesday, March 8, 7:00 pm, Colfax Avenue

Lydia Peelle, author of the Whiting Award-winning story collection Reasons for and Advantages of Breathing, will read from and sign her enchanting debut novel The Midnight Cool ($26.99 HarperCollins). Set in 1916 Tennessee, this is a rich and rewarding tale of two flawed yet endearing grifters who pursue women, wealth, and a surprisingly valuable commodity for the troops in Europe -- mules. Populated by spirited, memorable characters, The Midnight Cool is a startlingly profound tale of aspiration, loyalty, and love -- and the eternal search for something lasting in a transitory world.

Sunday, March 19, 2:00 pm, Colfax Avenue

Book clubs and all lovers of literary fiction are invited to join us for Afternoon Tea and a special reading and signing with Christina Baker Kline, the New York Times bestselling author of the smash bestseller Orphan Train. Kline will read from and sign her new novel A Piece of the World ($27.99 William Morrow), a stunning and atmospheric novel of friendship, passion, and art, inspired by Andrew Wyeth's mysterious and iconic painting Christina's World. Told in evocative and lucid prose, A Piece of the World is a story about the burdens and blessings of family history, and how artist and muse can come together to forge a new and timeless legacy.

Saturday, March 25, 6:00 pm, Colfax Avenue

Jeff P. Jones was born and raised in Denver, and his paternal ancestors were sharecroppers in East Texas. He's a MacDowell Fellow, and his fiction has won several awards, including the A. David Schwartz, Hackney, Wabash, and Meridian Editors' prizes. Jones will read from and sign his debut novel Love Give Us One Death: Bonnie and Clyde in the Last Days ($18.95 Texas Review). 

Tuesday, March 28, 7:00 pm, Colfax Avenue

Jim Shepard, the critically-acclaimed author of seven novels and four previous story collections, will read from and sign The World to Come: Stories ($25.95 Knopf). Shepard delivers a new collection that spans borders and centuries with unrivaled mastery. In each story the personal is the political as Shepard's characters face everything from the emotional pitfalls of everyday life to historic catastrophes on a global scale. In this collection, Shepard makes each of these wildly various worlds his own, and never before has he delineated anything like them so powerfully.

Wednesday, March 29, 7:00 pm, Colfax Avenue

Nickolas Butler, the bestselling author of the indie bookstore favorite Shotgun Lovesongs, will read from and sign his new book The Hearts of Men ($26.99 Ecco Press), an epic novel of intertwining friendships and families set in the Northwoods of Wisconsin at a beloved Boy Scout summer camp. The Hearts of Men is a sweeping, panoramic novel about the slippery definitions of good and evil, family and fidelity, the challenges and rewards of lifelong friendships, the bounds of morality -- and redemption.

Every now and then we encounter a new book that we're so excited about we want to shout it from the rooftops, so we have this special designation to distinguish it from the rest: TC V.I.B. (very impressive book)! That means it's a true stand-out in a season of many excellent and compelling new books.
