Governor Mike Huckabee Friday, January 30, 2015at 4:00pm – 5:30pm We’re thrilled to welcome Governor Huckabee to FoxTale Book Shoppe! In God, Guns, Grits and Gravy, Mike Huckabee asks, “Have I been taken to a different planet than the one on which I grew up?” The New York Times bestselling author explores today’s fractious American culture, where divisions of class, race, politics, religion, gender, age, and other fault lines make polite conversation dicey, if not downright dangerous. As Huckabee notes, the differences of opinion between the “Bubble-villes” of the big power centers and the “Bubba-villes” where most people live are profound, provocative, and sometimes pretty funny. Where else but in Washington, D.C. could two presidential golf outings cost the American taxpayers $2.9 million in travel expenses? Government bailouts, politician pig-outs, and popular culture provocations from JAY Z and Beyoncé to Honey Boo-Boo to the Duck Dynasty on A&E’s Robertson family. Gun rights, gay marriage, the decline of patriotism, and the mainstream media’s contempt for those who cherish a faith-based life…these subjects and many more are covered with Mike Huckabee’s signature wit, insight, and honesty. At times lighthearted, at others bracingly realistic, Huckabee’s brand of optimistic patriotism highlights American ideals, offering a bright outlook for future generations. With a wry eye for the ridiculous and a clear-eyed look at the most controversial issues of our time, God, Guns, Grits and Gravy is Mike Huckabee at his very best. Your $30 event ticket will include a copy of GOD, GUNS, GRITS and GRAVY, to be picked up at the event and signed by Mike Huckabee.

Gustavo Pérez Firmat - A Cuban In Mayberry - Gables : [01/30/2015, 06:30 pm ]

Coral Gables, FL
(305) 442-4408
http://www.booksandbooks.com
About Event :
Gustavo Pérez Firmat - A Cuban in Mayberry - Gables Start: Jan 30 2015 6:30 pm Half a century after viewers first watched a father and son walking to the local fishing hole, whistling a simple, yet unforgettable, tune, The Andy Griffith Show remains one of the most popular sitcoms in the history of American television. Tens of millions of viewers have seen the show either in its original run, its ongoing reruns, on DVD, or on the internet. Websites devoted to the show abound, hundreds of fan clubs bring enthusiasts together, and a plethora of books and Mayberry-themed merchandise have celebrated all things Mayberry. A small cottage industry has even developed around the teachings of the show's episodes. But why does a sitcom from the 1960s set in the rural South still evoke such devotion in people today? In A Cuban in Mayberry, acclaimed author Gustavo Pérez Firmat revisits America's hometown to discover the source of its enduring appeal. He approaches the show from a unique perspective—that of an exile who has never experienced the rootedness that Andy and his fellow Mayberrians take for granted, as folks who have never strayed from home or lived among strangers. As Pérez Firmat weaves his personal recollections of exile from Cuba with an analysis of the show, he makes a convincing case that the intimacy between person and place depicted in TAGS is the secret of its lasting relevance, even as he reveals the surprising ways in which the series also reflects the racial, generational, and political turbulence of the 1960s. About the Author: Born in Havana and raised in Miami, GUSTAVO PÉREZ FIRMAT is currently the David Feinson Professor in the Humanities at Columbia University in New York City, as well as a resident of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. A noted writer and scholar, he is the author of many books, including the award-winning Life on the Hyphen: The Cuban-American Way, and numerous essays and reviews. Newsweek included him among “100 Americans to watch for in the 21st century” and Hispanic Business Magazine selected him as one of the “100 most influential Hispanics” in the United States.

Sande Boritz Berger - The Sweetness - Gables : [01/30/2015, 08:00 pm ]

Coral Gables, FL
(305) 442-4408
http://www.booksandbooks.com
About Event :
Sande Boritz Berger - The Sweetness - Gables Start: Jan 30 2015 8:00 pm Vilna 1941. An inquisitive young girl asks her grandmother why she is carrying nothing but a jug of lemons and water when they are forced by the Germans to evacuate their Vilna ghetto. "Something to remind me of the sweetness," the wise woman tells her, setting the theme for what they must remember to survive. Set during World War II, the novel is the parallel tale of two Jewish girls, cousins, living on separate continents, whose strikingly different lives promise to converge. Brooklyn-born Mira Kane is the talented eighteen-year-old daughter of a well-to-do manufacturer of women's knitwear in New York. Her cousin, eight-year-old Rosha Kaninsky, is the lone survivor of a family abroad exterminated by the invading Nazis. Yet, unbeknownst to her American relatives, the orphaned Rosha did not perish. Desperate to save his child during a round-up, her father thrust Rosha into the arms of a Polish Catholic candle maker, who hides her─ putting her own family at risk. The headstrong Mira, who dreams of escaping Brooklyn for a career as a fashion designer, finds her ambitions abruptly thwarted when, traumatized at the fate of his European relatives, her father becomes intent on safeguarding his loved ones from all threats of a brutal world. Everyone must challenge his injurious and spiraling survivor guilt. Though the Kanes endure the experience of the Jews who got out, they reveal how even in the safety of our lives, we are profoundly affected by the dire circumstances of others. Like The Book Thief and Those Who Save Us, The Sweetness is a poignant portrait of life during a most tragic time in history.

About I Was Here: When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything--so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg's college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there's a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, and some secrets of his own. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can't open--until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend's death gets thrown into question. About Gayle Forman: Gayle Forman is an award-winning, internationally bestselling author and journalist. She is the author of Just One Day and Just One Year, as well as the New York Times bestsellers If I Stay and Where She Went. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband and daughters.

Her New York Times bestselling novel, Out of the Easy is set in the French Quarter of New Orleans in 1950. A historical tale of secrets and lies, Out of the Easy is a story of identity, family, and the haunting reminder that decisions can shape our destiny. Ruta lives with her family in Tennessee.

About Event :
Greer Macallister, Colleen Oakley & Ariel Lawhon Saturday, January 31, 2015at 1:00pm That’s right, three fabulous authors at one time, at one place – FoxTale Book Shoppe! We’re excited to welcome back friend and bestselling author Ariel Lawhon along with debut authors Greer Macallister and Colleen Oakley! Three COMPLETELY different books, from three completely different authors. The ladies will share their publishing journeys, what inspired them to write what they did and of course, share about their novels. The Magician’s Lie — Water for Elephants meets The Night Circus in The Magician’s Lie, a debut novel in which the country’s most notorious female illusionist stands accused of her husband’s murder — and she has only one night to convince a small-town policeman of her innocence. Before I Go — A heart-wrenching debut novel in the bestselling tradition of P.S. I Love You about a young woman with breast cancer who undertakes a mission to find a new wife for her husband before she passes away. The Wife, the Maid and the Mistress — One summer night in 1930, Judge Joseph Crater steps into a New York City cab and is never heard from again. Behind this great man are three women, each with her own tale to tell: Stella, his fashionable wife, the picture of propriety; Maria, their steadfast maid, indebted to the judge; and Ritzi, his showgirl mistress, willing to seize any chance to break out of the chorus line. As the twisted truth emerges, Ariel Lawhon’s wickedly entertaining debut mystery transports us into the smoky jazz clubs, the seedy backstage dressing rooms, and the shadowy streets beneath the Art Deco skyline.

About Event :
McIntyre's Books Author Events Seth Darling – How to Change Minds About Our Changing Climate 11 a.m. | McIntyre's Books Books For A Better Life Award — Green category finalist “With humor and copious research, the authors . . . take 15 of the most common arguments against climate change and turn them upside down. For those who want a more thorough grasp of the situation or need facts and figures to help sway others, this book is right on target.” — Shelf Awareness This is the essential climate change debate handbook – everything you need to know about climate science to change minds Have you ever heard someone say that climate change is simply the result of natural cycles? Or that there can’t be global warming because it still gets so cold out? While the claims climate-change deniers make can seem, on their surface, quite plausible, they simply don’t hold up against the evidence: Beyond a shadow of a doubt, science proves that climate change is real and primarily human-driven. But the next time a skeptic puts you on the spot, will you know what to say to end the argument? How to Change Minds About Our Changing Climate dismantles all the most pernicious misunderstandings using the strongest explanations science has to offer. Armed with airtight arguments, you’ll never be at a loss for words again, no matter how convincing or unexpected the misconception you’re faced with. And with our planet’s future in our hands, the time to change minds is now. The sooner we can agree, once and for all, that climate change is a significant threat to our well-being, the sooner we can start to do something about it. Seth B. Darling received his PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Chicago, after which he was awarded the Glenn Seaborg Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois. He is now a scientist in the Center for Nanoscale Materials at Argonne National Laboratory and a fellow at the Institute for Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago. His research touches on many aspects of molecular science and engineering, with a particular focus on solar energy. Through well over a hundred public lectures, tours, and outreach events, he has honed his skills for communicating complex scientific concepts to non-scientists.

Mimi Lutz - I'm Right Here, With You - Gables : [01/31/2015, 05:00 pm ]

http://www.booksandbooks.com
About Event :
Mimi Lutz - I'm Right Here, With You - Gables Start: Jan 31 2015 5:00 pm There is more to life than this!... she hears inside herself. Within a split second, Lili grabs the wall again, preventing herself from falling from the eighth floor into the moving traffic. Shaking, she slowly lowers herself down onto the terrace. She needs to redefine her life. She had been quiet about a physically abusive husband, as she was trained to be. Who could she trust? She finds a way to leave, find a job, go back to school. As a single mother, her life opens to a new page. About the Author: Sixteen years in the making, Mimi Lutz’s whirlwind personal chronicle begins when her parents divorced and she and her mother immediately relocated to Portugal. As a child, Lutz loved her mother’s stories of being a young Manhattan debutante (even rushing off to a glamorous Hollywood film audition), but “Mummy’s” lifestyle meant shuffling her young daughter around to international locations such as São Paulo, where Lutz became inspired with dance lessons. With her father absent and long-since divorced from her mother, Lutz describes being partly raised by relatives, including her wealthy aunt and elegant uncle, as well as by her stately grandmother Marie Thérèse. She also details the first stirrings of romantic passion and a rocky, abusive first marriage. Her infrequent reunions with her father were awkward at best before his death when she was 22. Lutz writes of visitations by Joan, an inner voice that counseled her and offered guidance throughout her adolescence and beyond. As an adult, Lutz sometimes dated philandering men, made careless decisions and had unfulfilling relationships. She attempted to alleviate worries about her weight and her appearance, then dabbled in acting. Lutz’s memoir offers some intriguing snapshots of a childhood spent in private school in France, of her rich, European family, and of an adulthood careening from New York to Europe to Miami while struggling with life, love and eventual motherhood. But these rapid-fire snippets fail to create a flowing, chronological autobiography. Instead, it’s a jumble of memories. The work concludes on a high note; Lutz, now in her mid-60s, has found well-earned stability and happiness after overcoming numerous trials. While earnestly written and heartfelt, Lutz’s unwieldy life story may confound readers.

About Event :
Author Event: A Murder Country - Brandon Daily Start: 11:00 am The nineteenth century looms just a few years away, bringing with it the belief in progress and a new world. But for Josiah Fuller, William Corvin, and the Rider in the Appalachian backwoods and small towns of the late nineteenth century, there is nothing but a world where bloodshed is paid for in blood, and violence is the ultimate law of the land. When seventeen-year-old Josiah Fuller comes home to find his parents hanged and mutilated and the family house burned to the ground, he sets off to find the man responsible for their murders and avenge their deaths. His journey takes him through new towns and wildernesses he has not seen before. He meets people who show him the realities of living in a violent world, forcing Josiah to decide what is most important to him: vengeance or grace. Years after running away from home as a young boy, William Corvin returns with his new bride to take over the family's coal mining operation. Though he is haunted by the violence of his past, he sets out to live a peaceful life and start a family there. However, Corvin's hopes of peace are challenged when a horrible act of violence causes him to revert back to the man he once was. After being visited by an angel in a dream years earlier, the Rider has become a man with violence in his blood, believing himself to be appointed by God to collect the souls of sinners. He travels around on his horse, killing whoever he feels is deserving of God's wrath and vengeance. These three men move along their own individual paths, their stories intersecting with one another, continually searching for an understanding of the violent world in which they live and their own actions within that world. The novel examines the power and fragility of belief and conviction within humans, showing how one small act often leads to consequences that reach far beyond anyone's imagining.

About Event :
Lee Mandel- Unlikely Warrior:A Pacifist Rabbi’s Journey from the Pulpit to Iwo Jima Discussion from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. followed by Signing Saturday January 31st, 2015 A brilliant student, orator, and debater, Rabbi Roland Gittelsohn was an outspoken social activist and frequent lecturer on political topics during the 1930s. Despite his passionate support of pacifism, Gittelsohn voluntarily joined the navy when the United States entered World War II, becoming the first Jewish chaplain assigned to the United States Marine Corps. Gittelsohn’s remarkable story, told here from his surviving notes, chronicles the evolution of his crisis of conscience and gives an insider’s view into the Battle of Iwo Jima. Author Lee Mandel’s research provides an unprecedented look at how the US Navy took clergymen of all religions and molded them into a highly effective support force for America’s fighting forces. Mandel traces the Gittelsohn family from their emigration from Russia through Roland’s ordination and his excursions into the political and Zionist movements that shaped the 1930s. Delving into Gittelsohn’s pivotal decision to join the armed forces as a chaplain and his experiences in battle, Mandel details the behind-the-scenes anti-Semitic power struggles that almost prevented what was to become one of the most famous oratories in military history. At the dedication of the Fifth Marine Division Cemetery, Gittelsohn delivered a eulogy known as “The Purest Democracy” and often referred to as the “Gettysburg Address of WWII.” In this dramatic narrative, Mandel draws from many historical sources, including Gittelsohn’s 1988 autobiography, extensive personal papers, and the rabbi’s unpublished war memoir-including his analysis of why pacifism failed-to present a complete picture of this unusual man. About the Author: Lee Mandel was born in New York City, graduated from Washington and Jefferson College, and received his medical degree from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. As a doctor in the United States Navy, he earned numerous honors for service and leadership. Dr. Mandel’s talent for research is in high demand, and he has been featured on “Ten Things You Don’t Know About John F. Kennedy,” an episode of the History Channel’s Ten Things You Don’t Know About series. He is the author of Moryak: A Novel of the Russian Revolution, winner of the 2010 Grand Prize for Fiction from the Santa Fe Creative Arts Council. A retired navy captain, Mandel is a staff physician at the Newport News Shipyard Clinic. He and his wife live in Suffolk, Virginia.
