7pm | TEMPE | ANDREA AVERY | SONATA: A MEMOIR OF PAIN AND THE PIANO | Local author Andrea Avery shares her memoir that weaves chronic illness and classical music into a raw, inspiring tale of grace and determination. Andrea, already a promising and ambitious classical pianist at twelve, was diagnosed with a severe case of rheumatoid arthritis that threatened not just her musical aspirations but her ability to live a normal life. As Andrea navigates the pain and frustration of coping with RA alongside the usual travails of puberty, college, sex, and just growing up, she turns to music—specifically Franz Schubert's sonata in B-flat D960, and the one-armed pianist Paul Wittgenstein—for strength and inspiration. The heartbreaking story of this mysterious sonata is the soundtrack of Andrea's story. More »

7pm | PHOENIX | KARIN TIDBECK | AMATKA | Swedish author Karin Tidbeck presents her novel about freedom, love, and artistic creation set in a world shaped by language in the tradition of Margaret Atwood and Ursula K. Le Guin. Vanja, an information assistant, is sent from her home city of Essre to the austere, wintry colony of Amatka with an assignment to collect intelligence for the government. Immediately she feels that something strange is going on: people act oddly in Amatka, and citizens are monitored for signs of subversion. Intending to stay just a short while, Vanja falls in love with her housemate, Nina, and prolongs her visit. But when she stumbles on evidence of a growing threat to the colony, and a cover-up by its administration, she embarks on an investigation that puts her at tremendous risk. In Karin Tidbeck's world, everyone is suspect, no one is safe, and nothing—not even language, nor the very fabric of reality—can be taken for granted. More »

Hunger by Roxane Gay

PHOENIX | 7PM WEDNESDAY, JULY 26

Barbara Vanderburg Join us at First Draft Book Bar (the wine and beer bar inside Changing Hands Phoenix) for a discussion of this month's pick, Roxane Gay's Hunger, a searingly honest memoir of food, weight, self-image, and learning how to feed your hunger while taking care of yourself.

HungerABOUT THE BOOK | From the New York Times best-selling author of Bad Feminist, a searingly honest memoir of food, weight, self-image, and learning how to feed your hunger while taking care of yourself.

"I ate and ate and ate in the hopes that if I made myself big, my body would be safe. I buried the girl I was because she ran into all kinds of trouble. I tried to erase every memory of her, but she is still there, somewhere. . . . I was trapped in my body, one that I barely recognized or understood, but at least I was safe."

New York Times bestselling author Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and bodies, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. As a woman who describes her own body as "wildly undisciplined," Roxane understands the tension between desire and denial, between self-comfort and self-care. In Hunger, she casts an insightful and critical eye on her childhood, teens, and twenties--including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life--and brings readers into the present and the realities, pains, and joys of her daily life.

With the bracing candor, vulnerability, and authority that have made her one of the most admired voices of her generation, Roxane explores what it means to be overweight in a time when the bigger you are, the less you are seen. Hunger is a deeply personal memoir from one of our finest writers, and tells a story that hasn't yet been told but needs to be. More »

The End

by Fernanda Torres, Alison Entrekin (Translator) | Paperback, $16.99 »

The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. "It gives nothing away to say that this book is about the deaths of five macho male friends in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. Bound together by their love of women, partying, and drugs, Torres starts each character's narrative by describing their last moments. While it was hard to like any of the characters (Silvio leaves his wife for parties with a young bisexual woman who happens to be Ribiero's girlfriend and the Don Juan of the group, Ciro, inflicts horrible cruelty on the one woman he commits to), the marvelous writing and dark humor kept me flipping the pages. Torres, a debut author and Brazilian actress, deftly explores male sexuality and the disappointments and frustrations of aging. The characters in the periphery of these men's lives are really the key here, seeing how misogyny, vanity, and selfishness play out on the wives, sisters, lovers, and children of the gang is fascinating."  —Camilla

 

Meddling Kids

by Edgar Cantero | Hardcover, $26.95 »

Meddling Kids "When the grownup members of the Blyton Summer Detective Club return to their childhood haunt to reopen their last case, all hell breaks loose — and this time, it isn't just a man in a mask. A loving tribute to both Scooby Doo and H.P. Lovecraft, Meddling Kids performs an impressive juggling act, balancing zany cartoon antics, video game carnage, and seething, turn-on-the-lights-and-check-under-the-bed terror. Edgar Cantero conducts this glorious cacophony with a playful pen and a mischievous grin, uncovering wit and charm even in the darkest corners. His voice was a delight to read, clever and chaotic and wonderfully weird. I couldn't get enough. Even when I checked the clock and discovered that it was suddenly 2:00 in the morning, I had trouble putting the book down. So hop in the Mystery Machine and be sure to buckle up — you're in for a wild ride."  —Jason

 

Essential Essays

by Joshua Fields Millburn, Ryan Nicodemus | Paperback, $16.99 »

Often I Am Happy "When you are finished with Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, next is Essential Essays by The Minimalists. Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus are The Minimalists. It interests them to live focused, intentional lives - not busy ones. They respect what C. S. Lewis eloquently said about happiness: 'Don't let your happiness depend on something you may lose.' Suggestions abound - dumping everything in the closet that you don't love; letting go of your DVD collection 'to live your life instead;' 'keeping real friends, not fake friends from the past.' What is Essential in your life?"  —Pinna
