Speak from Your Heart Diane Rehm Watergate Girl
Dr. Kixx Goldman presents her new collection of short stories Bestselling author and renowned radio host Diane Rehm presents her latest book Jill Wine-Banks shares The Watergate Girl: My Fight for Truth and Justice Against a Criminal President

Featured Event

CO-PRESENTED BY KJZZ MODERATED BY LAUREN GILGER AND STEVE GOLDSTEIN OF KJZZ'S "THE SHOW"
Diane Rehm: When My Time Comes: Conversations About Whether Those Who Are Dying Should Have the Right to Determine When Life Should End

OFFSITE | 2PM SUNDAY, MARCH 1

Book Cover
Bestselling author and renowned radio host Diane Rehm presents her latest, a book of candor and compassion, addressing the urgent, hotly contested cause of the Right-to-Die movement, of which she is one of our most inspiring champions.

Through interviews with terminally ill patients, and with physicians, ethicists, spouses, relatives, and representatives of those who vigorously oppose the movement, Rehm gives voice to a broad range of people who are personally linked to the realities of medical aid in dying. The book presents the fervent arguments--both for and against--that are propelling the current debates across the nation about whether to adopt laws allowing those who are dying to put an end to their suffering. With characteristic even-handedness, Rehm skillfully shows both sides of the argument, providing the full context for this highly divisive issue. With a highly personal foreword by John Grisham, When My Time Comes is a response to many misconceptions and misrepresentations of end-of-life care; it is a call to action--and to conscience--and it is an attempt to heal and soothe our hearts, reminding us that death, too, is an integral part of life.

IN CONVERSATION WITH CIVIA TAMARKIN
Jill Wine-Banks: The Watergate Girl: My Fight for Truth and Justice Against a Criminal President

PHOENIX | 7PM TUESDAY, MARCH 3

Book Cover
Jill Wine-Banks shares her book taking us inside her trial by fire as a Watergate prosecutor.

It was a time, much like today, when Americans feared for the future of their democracy, and women stood up for equal treatment. At the crossroads of the Watergate scandal and the women’s movement was a young lawyer named Jill Wine Volner (as she was then known), barely thirty years old and the only woman on the team that prosecuted the highest-ranking White House officials. Called “the mini-skirted lawyer” by the press, she fought to receive the respect accorded her male counterparts―and prevailed.

In The Watergate Girl, Jill Wine-Banks opens a window on this troubled time in American history. It is impossible to read about the crimes of Richard Nixon and the people around him without drawing parallels to today’s headlines. The book is also the story of a young woman who sought to make her professional mark while trapped in a failing marriage, buffeted by sexist preconceptions, and harboring secrets of her own. Her house was burgled, her phones were tapped, and even her office garbage was rifled through.

At once a cautionary tale and an inspiration for those who believe in the power of justice and the rule of law, The Watergate Girl is a revelation about our country, our politics, and who we are as a society. More »

TWEEN EVENT
Jewell Parker Rhodes: Black Brother, Black Brother

TEMPE | 7PM WEDNESDAY, MARCH 4

Book Cover Book Cover
Award-winning and bestselling author Jewell Parker Rhodes presents the powerful coming-of-age story about two brothers, one who presents as white, the other as black, and the complex ways in which they are forced to navigate the world, all while training for a fencing competition.

Sometimes, 12-year-old Donte wishes he were invisible. As one of the few black boys at Middlefield Prep, most of the students don't look like him. They don't like him either. Dubbing him "Black Brother," Donte's teachers and classmates make it clear they wish he were more like his lighter-skinned brother, Trey.

When he's bullied and framed by the captain of the fencing team, "King" Alan, he's suspended from school and arrested for something he didn't do.

Terrified, searching for a place where he belongs, Donte joins a local youth center and meets former Olympic fencer Arden Jones. With Arden's help, he begins training as a competitive fencer, setting his sights on taking down the fencing team captain, no matter what.

As Donte hones his fencing skills and grows closer to achieving his goal, he learns the fight for justice is far from over. Now Donte must confront his bullies, racism, and the corrupt systems of power that led to his arrest.

Powerful and emotionally gripping, Black Brother, Black Brother is a careful examination of the school-to-prison pipeline and follows one boy's fight against racism and his empowering path to finding his voice. More »

Donte wishes he were invisible. As one of the few black boys at Middlefield Prep, he feels as if he is constantly swimming in whiteness. Most of the students don't look like him. They don't like him either. Dubbed the "Black Brother," Donte's teachers and classmates make it clear they wish he were more like his lighter skinned brother, Trey. Quiet, obedient. When an incident with "King" Alan leads to Donte's arrest and suspension, he knows the only way to get even is to beat the king of the school at his own game: fencing. With the help of a former Olympic fencer, Donte embarks on a journey to carve out a spot on Middlefield Prep's fencing team, and maybe learn something about himself along the way. More »

Weather

by Jenny Offill | Hardcover, $23.95 »

The Night Masquerade In sparse and at times fragmented prose, Jenny Offill captures the anxiety, panic and near-existential dread of our times in her new book Weather. It's near impossible to sum up this book except to say it's about a librarian who's coming to terms not just with her mortality but with that of our planet and doesn't know what that means for herself, her family and her child. How does one parent when the world might collapse? How do you wake up every day knowing the world around you is quietly crumbling at an exponential rate? How does one live in times of crisis? The book doesn't offer any answers. But it raises all the right questions for now.  —Michelle
