She’s spent the last seven hundred years hiding in plain sight. But Mouse's past is about to catch up with her.
The Devil’s Bible. Once considered an eighth wonder of the world, the ancient book is shrouded in mystery. No one knows who wrote it or where it was written. Even dry-boned scholars whisper about the secrets hidden in the book: How it calls to the power-hungry. How it drives people mad. How it was written in the shadows by the hand of the devil himself.
But no one knows the truth—no one except Mouse.
She’s been running from the truth at the heart of the Devil’s Bible for so long that no one even knows her name anymore. She calls herself Emma Nicholas—a normal name for a normal college professor living a normal life. But all of it is a lie, and, when forces emerge that threaten to expose her, Mouse has no choice but to take flight once more.
Desperate and on the run, Mouse unexpectedly finds hope in a stranger’s kindness. But it will take more than hope to win this game of souls—a battle between good and evil set in motion long ago at the birth of the Devil’s Bible.

Peggy Senger Morrison - Miracle Motors
Tuesday, March 28, 7pm
Peggy was known as a storyteller from an early age - sometimes "a bit of a prevaricator" - so it stands to reason that a hooligan God set her on a path so full of the improbable that few would believe it. From a Holiness Womenʼs Clergy convention in Texas, to an African war zone, this motorcycle-riding, Gospel-preaching, trauma healing Quaker in high heels and leathers takes you on a wild ride as she learns to navigate life on Godʼs terms.
Peggy is a freelance provocateur of grace presently working in the field of education. She is twice a mother and once a grandmother (so far). Peggy is a Recorded Minister of the Gospel at Freedom Friends Chruch in Salem, Oregon, and she is married to the talented and beautiful Alivia Biko.
John M. Barry - RISING TIDE: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How It Changed America - 20th anniversary lecture
It is the 20th anniversary of the publication of RISING TIDE. Join us for a revisit with John M. Barry.
An American epic of science, politics, race, honor, high society, and the Mississippi River, Rising Tide tells the riveting and nearly forgotten story of the greatest natural disaster this country has ever known -- the Mississippi flood of 1927. The river inundated the homes of nearly one million people, helped elect Huey Long governor and made Herbert Hoover president, drove hundreds of thousands of blacks north, and transformed American society and politics forever.
John M. Barry is a prize-winning and New York Times best-selling author whose books have won multiple awards. The National Academies of Science named his 2004 book The Great Influenza: The story of the deadliest pandemic in history, a study of the 1918 pandemic, the year’s outstanding book on science or medicine. His earlier book Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How It Changed America, won the Francis Parkman Prize of the Society of American Historians for the year’s best book of American history and in 2005 the New York Public Library named it one of the 50 best books in the preceding 50 years, including fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. His books have also been embraced by experts in applicable field: in 2006 he became the only non-scientist ever to give the National Academies of Sciences annual Abel Wolman Distinguished Lecture, a lecture which honors contributions to water-related science, and he was the only non-scientist on a federal government Infectious Disease Board f Experts. His latest book is Roger Williams and The Creation of the American Soul: Church, State, and the Birth of Liberty, a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and winner of the New England Society Book Award.

Mark of the Dragonfly:
Piper has never seen the mark of the dragonfly until she finds the girl amid the wreckage of a caravan in the meteor fields. The girl doesn’t remember a thing about her life, but the intricate tattoo on her arm is proof that she’s from the Dragonfly Territories and that she’s protected by the king. The one sure way to the Territories is the 401, a great old beauty of a train. But a ticket costs more coin than Piper could make in a year. And stowing away is a difficult prospect—everyone knows that getting past the peculiar green-eyed boy who stands guard is nearly impossible. Life for Piper just tuned dangerous.
The Secrets of Solace:
Lina Winterbock lives in the mountain strongholds of Solace. She’s an apprentice to the archivists, the wise men and women whose lives are dedicated to studying the objects that mysteriously fall from the sky in the scrap towns, but the Iron War has changed everything. The strongholds are now a refuge, and the people Lina once counted on no longer have time for her, so she spends her days exploring. The strongholds are vast and old with forgotten rooms and collapsed chambers. And in one of those forgotten chambers, Lina discovers a secret, a half-buried airship like nothing she has ever seen before. She’s determined to dig it out and restore it. But Lina needs help, and she doesn’t know anyone she can trust with her secret. Then she meets Ozben, a mysterious boy who has a secret of his own—a secret that’s so dangerous it could change the course of the Iron War and the world of Solace forever.

An original, provocative contribution to the debate over rising economic inequality that argues that a strong and sizable middle class is in fact embedded in the very framework of our government and its founding document.
For two thousand years, constitutional republics assumed class divisions a priori. But as Ganesh Sitaraman reminds us in this exceptionally lucid study, our Constitution, growing as it did out of a society of almost unprecedented economic equality, made no provisions to prevent the upper class from seizing the levers of power, as other constitutions had. Now that the wealthy are doing just that, Sitaraman argues that Americans face a choice: Do we accept the kind of equal society our founders always assumed we would enjoy, or do we adapt our Constitution to fit the kind of inequality they believed America was an exception to? In deciding that question, he reasons, we should be heartened by the fact that we've taken steps before to reduce inequality and strengthen the middle class, and that we can and should take those steps again.
On Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at 7PM, Ganesh Sitaraman will appear at The Carter Library to read, discuss, and answer questions about his latest work. A Cappella Books is the official bookseller for this event.
