Incendiary Girls by Kodi Scheer with This Is Paradise by Kristiana Kahakauwila

Apr 23 2014 7:00 pm
Apr 23 2014 8:00 pm

Highly recommended for fans of Karen Russell or Hannah Tinti, a collection of stories inspired by science, medicine, and the power of healing with a magical twist makes its debut. Incendiary Girls explores our baser instincts with vivid imagination and humor. In these stories, our bodies become strange and unfamiliar terrain, a medium for transformation.


Joining Kodi is author Kristiana Kahakauwila with her new book This Is Paradise : Stories.  A visceral, poignant, and elegantly gritty work of debut fiction set in
Hawaii, in the vein of Junot Diaz's Drown 
Her portrayal of people whose lives have lost their centre of gravity is
acute, often heartbreaking, and suffused with a deeply felt
empathy.With a contemporary edginess, a mature style, and a sense of
history reverberating into the present, This is Paradise is an
incredible debut.

Deadly Echoes by Philip Donlay

Apr 25 2014 6:30 pm
Apr 25 2014 7:30 pm

Donlay demonstrates a fine grasp of action-thriller boilerplate in his fourth Donovan Nash thriller. With his world in tatters and everything he built seemingly destroyed, Donovan is forced to make one last desperate gamble to stop Garrick and silence the man forever--a roll of the dice that may very well cost Nash his life.
