Join us in celebration of the 10th Book in the Sebastion St. Cyr series.

London, 1813. The vicious decapitation of Stanley Preston, a wealthy, socially ambitious plantation owner, at Bloody Bridge draws Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, into a macabre and increasingly perilous investigation. The discovery near the body of an aged lead coffin strap bearing the inscription King Charles, 1648 suggests a link between this killing and the beheading of the deposed seventeenth-century Stuart monarch. Equally troubling, the victim’s kinship to the current Home Secretary draws the notice of Sebastian’s powerful father-in-law, Lord Jarvis, who will exploit any means to pursue his own clandestine ends.

Working in concert with his fiercely independent wife, Hero, Sebastian finds his inquiries taking him from the wretched back alleys of Fish Street Hill to the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair as he amasses a list of suspects who range from an eccentric Chelsea curiosity collector to the brother of an unassuming but brilliantly observant spinster named Jane Austen.

C. S. Harris discusses and signs her book, Who Buries The Dead.

This book is available in hardcover ($24.95).

If you are unable to attend, you must call the book shop to order signed books.

Laura Cayouette: Lemonade Farm

Mar 4 2015 6:00 pm

Wednesday, March 4th

6-7:30PM 

 

Tall and skinny Ariel is an awkward, observant, insecure and insightful 12-year-old who feels every one of her growing pains. It's 1976 and Ariel's parents have split, as have all of the neighboring families in her suburban town. The broken bits of these families move into a 200-year-old farmhouse deep in rural Maryland and begin to form a new family. 

As the grown-ups begin dating and playing with their new freedom, the children are often left to their own devices - sometimes with heartbreaking results. Every family is a world unto itself, but the longer the Lemons live at the farm, the more they become a semi-utopic oddity in post-Vietnam, bicentennial times. 

What starts as a coming-of-age odyssey of a hyper-aware preteen evolves into the story of an era and the evolution of the American family. As families today continue to disintegrate and reintegrate, Lemonade Farm serves as a highly relevant, humorous and endearing story of loss and renewal.

An actor for 20 years, Laura Cayouette is best known as Leonardo DiCaprio's sister in Django Unchained, her fourth collaboration with Quentin Tarantino.  Laura received the 2014 Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of South Alabama where she earned her M.A. in creative writing and English literature. She also holds a B.A. in English literature from the University of Maryland.  She is also the author of Know Small Parts: An Actor's Guide to Turning Minutes into Moments and Moments into a Career with a foreword by Richard Dreyfuss which has been endorsed by Kevin Costner, Lou Diamond Phillips and a dozen other industry luminaries.  Laura currently lives in New Orleans where writes a blog, LAtoNOLA, about her beloved city.

Kevin Sessums: I Left it on the Mountain: A Memoir

Mar 13 2015 6:00 pm

Friday, March 13th

6-7:30PM

 

On his 53rd birthday, Kevin Sessums woke up in his L.A. hotel room wondering how he would get through his scheduled interview with Hugh Jackman. For years he had interviewed the bright lights: Madonna, Courtney Love, Jessica Lange, and all the other usual suspects; but, Kevin knew that his rapidly unraveling life was as shallow as the hotel's hip furniture and he was hanging on by his fingertips.

In I Left It on the Mountain, Sessums chronicles his early days in NY as an actor, his years working for Andy Warhol at Interview and Tina Brown at Vanity Fair, countless nights of anonymous sex, his HIV Positive diagnosis and his descent into addiction. It's also the chronicle of one man's spiritual redemption found while climbing to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, walking the Camino de Santiago de Compostelo and trudging across the cold, lonely winter beaches of Provincetown. 

Kevin Sessums discusses and signs his book, I Left it on the Mountain: A Memoir.

This book is available in hardcover ($25.99). 

If you are unable to attend, you must call the book shop to order signed books.
