Kusiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey

Our good friend Jacqueline Carey just published a book called Kushiel's Dart, Piers Anthony, the legendary Science Fantasty writer reviewed and quoted -- "This is a considerable story, beautifully written. It's a book the reader can live in for a while, and be sorry to leave, the best fantasy I've read in years." Jacqueline is having a reading at the Saugatuck Women's club on June 27th at 7:00 p.m. You can read more about the author and the book on her website at http://www.jacquelinecarey.com/.

Ruin & Recovery, Michigan's Rise as a Conservation Leader by Dave Dempsey

If someone asked for a history of Michigan, this is the first book I would place in their hands." The reading is free of charge and takes place on Saturday, September 8 at 7:30 pm at 131 Mason - downtown Saugatuck in the Old Post Office Shop. For further info call 616-857-4553.

The Blue Guide to Indiana by Michael Martone

The official book selection by Bill Galligan from the Old Post Office Shop/Blue Rhino Books & Other Necessities: "The Blue Guide to Indiana" by Michael Martone. Take a whimsical tour of Indiana with author Michael Martone, from a recipe for Pork Cake to the Tomb of Orville Redenbacher (after all, Valparaiso actually does have a Popcorn Festival--proof that truth is stranger than satire). This tongue-in-cheek tour guide is a wry look at the Hoosier State and travel guides.

Having Faith by Sandra Steingraber

This months official book selection is from our Saugatuck friend, local writer, editor, and poet Alison Swan. Her pick is "Having Faith" by biologist and writer Sandra Steingraber. This poignant memoir of her pregnancy blends intimacy, science, and personal transformation with revealing information about the environmental hazards facing pregnant women today. "Poetry and science combine in a lyrical celebration and a passionate call to arms."
