Jack Remick - Citadel

September 13, 2018 - 7:00pm

Ravenna

Local author Jack Remick is a Third Place regular, and in Citadel he gives us a thrill-ride of a book. Meta-fictional, political, and weaving between timelines, Citadel is an unapologetic look, through fiction, at the myth of male superiority, and the violence it causes. To call Citadel “timely” would be an understatement.

Shamus Award-winner John Straley returns to his critically-acclaimed Cecil Younger series, set in Alaska, a land of perfect beauty and not-so-perfect locals.

Carolyn Wood - Tough Girl

September 19, 2018 - 7:00pm

Ravenna

A coming-of-age memoir of a young swimmer's triumphs and heartbreaks on the path to winning Olympic gold at age 14. Some 50 years later, author Carolyn Wood embarks on a solo pilgrimage to walk the 500 miles of the Camino de Santiago in an attempt to reclaim her "inner tough girl" as she reflects on coming out as gay in the 1970s after a brief marriage and motherhood, and the disillusionment and loss she experiences when her 30-year relationship suddenly ends. Carolyn's childhood road to the Olympics, as well as her journey on the Camino, will thrill and inspire readers.

Chris Buckley - Bluing
