Author Event: Lisa Yaszek

January 17th, 2019- 6:30pm

We are thrilled to welcome local author and professor of science fiction, Lisa Yaszek to Read It Again!

Space-opera heroines, gender-bending aliens, post-apocalyptic pregnancies, changeling children, interplanetary battles of the sexes, and much more: a groundbreaking new collection of classic American science fiction by women from the 1920s to the 1960s

SF-expert Lisa Yaszek presents the biggest and best survey of the female tradition in American science fiction ever published, a thrilling collection of twenty-five classic tales. From Pulp Era pioneers to New Wave experimentalists, here are over two dozen brilliant writers ripe for discovery and rediscovery, including Leslie F. Stone, Judith Merril, Leigh Brackett, Kit Reed, Joanna Russ, James Tiptree Jr., and Ursula K. Le Guin. Imagining strange worlds and unexpected futures, looking into and beyond new technologies and scientific discoveries, in utopian fantasies and tales of cosmic horror, these women created and shaped speculative fiction as surely as their male counterparts. Their provocative, mind-blowing stories combine to form a thrilling multidimensional voyage of literary-feminist exploration and recovery.

An Afternoon of Romance- Author Event

February 23th, 2019- 1:00pm

We love to start conversations at Read It Again. This month one of our conversations will be about Romance! We have a very special panel of romance authors lined up for your personal pleasure. We plan on discussing what it means to be a romance writer, how romance has effected other genres and how the genre has changed over the years. So come, join the conversation!

Tracy Solheim  is an old friend of the store. She received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Tennessee landed me in Washington, DC, where she wrote reports for Congress while pursuing a Master’s degree in Legislative Affairs from The George Washington University. Later Tracy worked briefly in television production for NBC Sports at the Seoul Olympics. Currently, Tracy live in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, with her husband, and a wild Labrador Retriever named Harper.  Tray is happiest when my two young adult kids are home for a visit.  When she's not writing, she enjoys photography, cooking, and, what else, reading!

Natasha Boyd is a USA Today bestselling and award-winning author of contemporary romance and historical fiction. She has lived on three continents, and currently lives and writes full-time in the Southeast USA. 
Her work is available in English, Italian, Turkish, German, French, and Indonesian.

Bestselling author Jillian Neal likes her coffee strong and sweet with a shot of sinful spice, the same way she likes her cowboys. In fact, her caffeine addiction is quite possibly considered illicit in several states as are a few of the things her characters do. When she’s not writing or reading, you’ll find her in the kitchen trying out new recipes or coming up with excuses reasons to purchase yet another handbag or make an additional trip to Sephora. Though she’ll always be a Bama girl at heart, Jillian hangs up her hat and kicks up her boots outside of Atlanta with her hunk-of-a-husband and her teenage sons.

The Lost Girls of Paris

1946, Manhattan

Grace Healey is rebuilding her life after losing her husband during the war. One morning while passing through Grand Central Terminal on her way to work, she finds an abandoned suitcase tucked beneath a bench. Unable to resist her own curiosity, Grace opens the suitcase, where she discovers a dozen photographs - each of a different woman. In a moment of impulse, Grace takes the photographs and quickly leaves the station.

Grace soon learns that the suitcase belonged to a woman named Eleanor Trigg, leader of a ring of female secret agents who were deployed out of London during the war. Twelve of these women were sent to Occupied Europe as couriers and radio operators to aid the resistance, but they never returned home, their fates a mystery. Setting out to learn the truth behind the women in the photographs, Grace finds herself drawn to a young mother turned agent named Marie, whose daring mission overseas reveals a remarkable story of friendship, valor and betrayal.

Vividly rendered and inspired by true events, New York Times bestselling author Pam Jenoff shines a light on the incredible heroics of the brave women of the war, and weaves a mesmerizing tale of courage, sisterhood and the great strength of women to survive in the hardest of circumstances.
