Local Authors Read and Sign at the Boulder Book Store
The Boulder Book Store, a valuable resource for writers and readers, is hosting its “Local Authors Afternoon” on Sunday, March 18, at 2 p.m. Featured authors will be speaking about and signing their books.
Emily Kemme’s book, In Search of Sushi Tora, caught my eye not only because of its beguiling title and cover, but because it explores the breakdown of a family through a fictional story based on the myth of King Minos and the Minotaur. Midwest Review called it “a choice and much recommended read, not to be overlooked.” To learn more, visit www.emilykemme.com.
Paul Kendel will share his memoir, Walking the Tiger’s Path, about his spiritual awakening as a soldier in Iraq. When his internal conflict about his loyalties to his fellow soldiers and his concern for the Iraqi people deepened, he turned to Buddhism and Shambahla International in Boulder, for assistance. His book was a Best Books Award Winner from USA Book Awards and received an honorable mention from the 2011 Holywood Book Festival. Visit his website at www.walkingthetigerspath.com.
Fans of speculative fiction and young adult literature will enjoy hearing Ian T. Healy share his most recent book, Just Cause. The book features a third-generation superhero, Mustang Sally—the fastest girl in the world–who must avenge her father. Ian claims to steal his ideas from different versions of himself in alternate universes. He adds: “If any of those guys figure me out, I’m toast.” For more wit, visit www.ianthealy.com.
Rounding out the bunch is J. Tamar Stone, author of Selves in a Box, a card deck and guidebook that features collaged, detailed portraits of 52 selves, useful for self exploration. Stone says that these “inner peeps” compete for our attention; her boxed set promises to help us understand them and, by doing so, allows us to live outside the box.
