October  2016

Upcoming Events

The October events listed below may be of particular interest to book clubs. Bring your group to meet an author you've read, or discover new books to add to your reading list.

Thursday, October 6, 7:00 pm, Colfax Avenue

Julia Child is synonymous with French cooking, but her legacy runs much deeper. Now, her great-nephew, bestselling author Alex Prud'homme vividly recounts the myriad ways in which Child profoundly shaped how we eat today.  The French Chef in America: Julia Child's Second Act is a sequel in spirit to My Life in France, following the story of Julia Child as she deals with difficult colleagues and the challenges of fame, ultimately using her newfound celebrity to create what would become a totally new type of food television.
Friday, October 7, 7:00 pm, Colfax Avenue

Soar back to the fearless 1920s with New York Times bestselling writer Laurie Notaro, beloved author of The Idiot Girls Action Adventure Club, in a stunning new historical novel that is based on the true, little-known story of three aviatrixes in a race to be the first woman to fly across the Atlantic. Notaro will discuss and sign  Crossing the Horizon, a story inspired by true events and real people that pulls us back in time as pilots collide, struggle, and literally crash in the chase for fame and a place in aviation history.
Friday, October 14, 7:00 pm, Colfax Avenue

New York Times bestselling author of People of the Book and Caleb's Crossing, Geraldine Brooks will sign the new paperback edition of her acclaimed novel,  The Secret Chord, which takes on one of literature's richest and most enigmatic figures: a man who shimmers between history and legend. Peeling away the myth to bring David to life in Second Iron Age Israel, Brooks traces the arc of his journey from obscurity to fame.
Thursday, October 20, 7:00 pm, Colfax Avenue

Ron Hansen, the award-winning author of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford returns with a new novel about an iconic American criminal of the Old West. In  The Kid, Hansen showcases his masterful research and inimitable style as he breathes life into history, bringing readers back into the late 1800s and into Billy's boyhood as a ranch hand just trying to wrest a fortune from an unforgiving landscape before turning to a life of crime.
Saturday, October 29, 7:00 pm, Colfax Avenue

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.
