Peter & Tracy Fluke, Coast to Coast on a Tandem


In many respects, Tracy and Peter Flucke are like many other active couples. They work a business together, they enjoy long-distance bicycling for exercise and fun, and their shared interests play a key role in building a strong and loving family. What sets them apart is the length to which they will go in the name of scratching their adventuresome itch – 4,362 miles to be exact. Climb aboard and join the Fluckes on their tandem bicycle for their 2014 unsupported trip that began in Bellingham, across the Northern Tier of the United States.

Jim Herrington, The Climbers


Jim Herrington will present his photography book The Climbers, the culmination of a two-decade project to track down and document the surviving legendary climbers of the early-to-mid 20th Century ‘Golden Age’ of climbing. These are the men and women from around the world who were vertically active between the 1920s and 1970s and who were at the cutting edge of an activity mostly unknown to the general public of the time.


• Fri 2/9/18 at 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Denise Chanterelle DuBois, Self-Made Woman


Denise DuBois’s transformation into a woman wasn’t easy. Born as a boy into a working-class Polish American Milwaukee family, she faced daunting hurdles: a domineering father, a gritty 1960s neighborhood with no understanding of gender nonconformity, trouble in school, and a childhood so haunted by deprivation that neckbone soup was a staple. Defying all expectations, DuBois didn’t crash and burn. Embracing her identity as a woman, she remade herself. Writing with resolute honesty and humor, she confronts both her past and her present to tell an American story of self-discovery.

Chris Loperfido: Death, Disease & Life at War


Union surgeon James Dana Benton witnessed firsthand the suffering and death brought about by the ghastly wounds, infections, and diseases that wreaked havoc on both Union and Confederate soldiers. A native of New York, Dr. Benton penned a series of letters throughout the war to his family relating his experiences with the 111th New York Infantry as an assistant surgeon, and later with the 98th New York, as surgeon. This unique correspondence is the basis of Chris Loperfido's book, "Death, Disease & Life at War."

Mike Cook, Thriving in the Middle


This is a book for developing managers. It is about a way to develop managers that corresponds to the way managing unfolds on a daily basis; more a tutorial for building a framework of development. There is no “done” with management development, there is no “over,” no graduation, no final certification. There is today, and what we did or did not do, and what we can learn from it in either case.


• Sat 2/17/18 at 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Shirley Melis: Banged-Up Heart


Banged-Up Heart is an intimate and clear-eyed account of finding love late and losing it early and of the strength it takes to fall madly in love a second time, be forced to relinquish that love too soon, and yet choose to love again. It takes you deep inside an ordinary woman, her deeply felt grief butting up against her desire for more than companionship: passion, sexual fulfillment, and self-realization.


• Sun 2/18/18 at 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Rachel Hartman: Tess of the Road


Rachel Hartman once again pushes the boundaries of genre, addressing issues that are rarely dealt with in epic fantasy and balancing them perfectly with adventure and light humor. With writing that is beautifully crafted and irresistibly powerful, "Tess of the Road" is at once both a rich fantasy adventure and an inspiring and indispensable reminder that there is always a way back from trauma and grief.


• Thu 3/1/18 at 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Anna Quinn: The Night Child


This breathtaking debut novel examines the impact of traumatic childhood experiences and the fragile line between past and present. Exquisitely nuanced and profoundly intimate, The Night Child is a story of resilience, hope, and the capacity of the mind, body, and spirit to save itself despite all odds.
