Poetry Reading with Author Elisabeth King

Upon the death of her mother in October, 2013, Elisabeth King began relieving her journey through grief with writing. Each expression represents a day in the life of the healing process; some are joyful while others still weigh heavy on a weary soul. This book is a representation of raw emotion, reflection, motherhood, childhood and the belief that through darkness comes light. Through sadness comes solace. Through life comes all things and the process should be acknowledged and honored.

A Book Launch party for Thom Ring's "Henry Hits the Ball"

Henry Brademeier can hit a baseball better than anyone who's ever played the game. He just can't play baseball. For that matter, he can't tie his own shoes.  Everyone in his hometown is aware that Henry can hit anything thrown at him, and baseballs are in particular danger. But Henry actually playing baseball? The idea is good for a laugh. Why, he's as dumb as a stump. Everybody in town knows it. Then a big-league scout discovers Henry taking cuts with the local high school team. The scout's employer, the Chicago White Sox, sign Henry to a minor-league contract, beginning a great adventure for the intellectually-challenged young man, who's never even been away from home. Henry's assigned to the club's lowest-level rookie team. His own aspirations don't extend beyond just getting more chances to hit a ball. This proves tough to accept by the young men around him who have dedicated their lives to becoming ballplayers. His new teammates mock the overweight, poorly-coordinated and easily-befuddled young man  until the first time he takes batting practice.

Reading and Book Signing with Michael Fine

Julia is an American medical doctor fleeing her own privileged background to find a new life delivering health care to African villages, where her skills can make a difference. Carl is also an American, whose very different experiences as a black man in the United States have driven him into exile in West Africa, where he is an international NGO expat. The two come together as colleagues (and then more) as Liberia is gripped in a brutal civil war. Child soldiers kidnap Julia on a remote jungle road, and Carl is evacuated against his will by U.S. Marines. Back in the United States he finds Julia’s mentor, Levin, a Rhode Island MD whose Sixties idealism has been hijacked by history. Then they meet the thief. Then they meet the smuggler. And the dangerous work of finding and rescuing Julia begins.

 

An unforgettable thriller grounded in real events.

“A powerful first novel—an epic stretching from the civil wars of Liberia to the streets of Rhode Island. A joy to read!”
—Paul J. Stekler, Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker

"Code Name Lily"

Code Name Lily takes you on an unforgettable journey from Belgium, into France, and over the Pyrenees Mountains into Spain. An extremely clever and persuasive young Belgian nurse outsmarts the Nazis time and again, risking her life if she is caught, but protecting every airman she successfully aids to evade the Germans.

 

Code Name Lily is based on the true story of Micheline “Michou” Dumon-Ugeux, a legend in the Comet Line escape network from 1940–1944 who went only by the name of Lily. You, too, will fall in love with Lily.

Presentation and Book Signing with Guntis Guncarovs

1864: The Federal blockade was strangling Charleston into submission. The Confederacy was struggling to maintain existence. General Pierre T. Beauregard listened as President Jefferson Davis promised the people of Charleston they would never fall. On the dock on the Cooper River sat Beauregard’s only hope — a submarine that had already taken thirteen sailors to a watery grave. Beauregard needed to find eight brave men to take the vessel into battle.

Convergence of Valor is the story of how the lives of those brave men converged in Charleston to make their mark in history on the night of February 17, 1864.
