7pm | TEMPE | TODD MILLER | STORMING THE WALL: CLIMATE CHANGE, MIGRATION, AND HOMELAND SECURITY | Droughts last longer, floods rise higher, and super-storms become more frequent as global warming accelerates. With increasing numbers of people on the move as a result, the business of containing them—border fortification—is booming. Tonight, Todd Miller discusses and signs his book Storming the Wall, which connects the dots between climate-ravaged communities, the corporations cashing in on border militarization, and emerging movements for environmental justice and sustainability. Reporting from the flashpoints of climate clashes, and from likely sites of future battles, Miller chronicles a growing system of militarized divisions between the rich and the poor, the environmentally secure and the environmentally exposed.

6pm | TEMPE | ANNE RICE & CHRISTOPHER RICE | RAMSES THE DAMNED: THE PASSION OF CLEOPATRA | New York Times bestsellers Anne Rice and Christopher Rice return to Changing Hands with their new novel, a mesmerizing, glamorous tale of ancient feuds and modern passions. Ramses the Great, former pharaoh of Egypt, is reawakened by the elixir of life in Edwardian England. Now immortal with his bride-to-be, he is swept up in a fierce and deadly battle of wills and psyches against the once-great Queen Cleopatra. Ramses has reawakened Cleopatra with the same perilous elixir whose unworldly force brings the dead back to life. But as these ancient rulers defy one another in their quest to understand the powers of the strange elixir, they are haunted by a mysterious presence even older and more powerful than they, a figure drawn forth from the mists of history who possesses spectacular magical potions and tonics eight millennia old. This is a figure who ruled over an ancient kingdom stretching from the once-fertile earth of the Sahara to the far corners of the world, a queen with a supreme knowledge of the deepest origins of the elixir of life. She may be the only one who can make known to Ramses and Cleopatra the key to their immortality—and the secrets of the miraculous, unknowable, endless expanse of the universe. More »

2pm | OFFSITE | KHIZR KHAN | AN AMERICAN FAMILY: A MEMOIR OF HOPE AND SACRIFICE | Muslim American Gold Star father and captivating DNC speaker Khizr Khan shares his memoir, a story of one family's pursuit of the American dream. In this urgent and timeless immigrant story, we learn that Khizr Khan has been many things. He was the oldest of ten children born to farmers in Pakistan, and a curious and thoughtful boy who listened rapt as his grandfather recited Rumi beneath the moonlight. He was a university student who read the Declaration of Independence and was awestruck by what might be possible in life. He was a hopeful suitor, awkwardly but earnestly trying to win the heart of a woman far out of his league. He was a brilliant and diligent young family man who worked two jobs to save enough money to put himself through Harvard Law School. He was a loving father who, having instilled in his children the ideals that brought him and his wife to America—the sense of shared dignity and mutual responsibility—tragically lost his son, an Army captain killed while protecting his base camp in Iraq. He was and is a patriot, and a fierce advocate for the rights, dignities, and values enshrined in the American system. An American Family shows us who Khizr Khan and millions of other American immigrants are, and why—especially in these tumultuous times—we must not be afraid to step forward for what we believe in when it matters most. Location: Central High School Auditorium 4525 N Central Ave, Phoenix 85012. More »

7pm | TEMPE | JAY MARK AND RONALD L. PETERS | BUCKHORN MINERAL BATHS & WILDLIFE MUSEUM | Local historian Jay Mark and preservation architect Ronald L. Peters present their book about the iconic local resort. From fire to empire, the story of the Buckhorn baths is a rags-to-riches tale. After a disastrous 1935 Christmas Eve fire destroyed their small country gas station/taxidermy business, a new, unimagined door opened for Ted and Alice Sliger. In 1936, the Sligers began turning tragedy into triumph, transforming a dusty patch of scrub-covered desert eight miles east of Mesa into a legendary roadside oasis. Their chance discovery of mineral-laden hot springs led to the valley's first therapeutic spa. With the New York Giants' initial attraction to Buckhorn's mineral baths, a decades-long association with Major League Baseball helped pave the way to Cactus League baseball. By the time it closed in 1999, the Sligers had built the Buckhorn into an iconic, quintessential roadside business along the route of four federal highways. It was renowned for its celebrity guests, eclectic architecture, colorful neon, mineral spa, retreat for baseball players, wildlife museum, and wide-ranging collection of memorabilia. More »

Pete Souza
souza package
dream big dreams
Talk and Slideshow Presentation with former Chief Official White House Photographer Pete Souza.

Changing Hands is proud to present Pete Souza with Obama: An Intimate Portrait, his visual biography of Barack Obama's historic presidency, presented in an oversize, 12"x10" exquisitely produced format, and featuring a foreword from the President himself.



LOCATION: Mesa Arts Center (Ikeda Theater)
1 E Main St, Mesa, AZ 85201


Pete Souza served as Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama's full two terms. He was with the President during more crucial moments than anyone else--and he photographed them all. Souza took nearly two million photographs of President Obama, capturing moments both highly classified and disarmingly candid.

Souza's photographs, with the behind-the-scenes captions and stories that accompany them, communicate the pace and power of our nation's highest office. They also reveal the spirit of the extraordinary man who became our President. We see President Obama lead our nation through monumental challenges, comfort us in calamity and loss, share in hard-won victories, and set a singular example to "be kind and be useful," as he would instruct his daughters.

The Ministry of Utmost Happiness

by Arundhati Roy | Hardcover, $28.95 »

The Ministry of Utmost Happiness "After twenty years, Arundhati Roy marks her return to fiction with a complex and riveting tale peopled with an incredibly diverse cast of characters -- Anjum born with both male and female genitalia, Tilotamma who finds herself caught up in dangerous movement for independence, and everyone that touches their lives - all struggling to find the place of their most sincere happiness, regardless of the constraints of gender, ethnicity, or religion. Roy uses her supreme gift of storytelling to conjure a storyline that moves like a flowing river. Even after two readings, I think there is still more to be found beneath the surface. "  —Scott

Homesick for Another World hits all the right notes."  —Heather
