  1. The Queen of the Tearling Used Hardcover $18.50

@ 7:30 pm

1005 W Burnside St. Portland, OR 503 228 4651

Magic, adventure, mystery, and romance combine in Erika Johansen's epic debut, The Queen of the Tearling (Harper), in which a young princess must reclaim her dead mother's throne, learn to be a ruler — and defeat the Red Queen, a powerful and malevolent sorceress determined to destroy her. The Queen of the Tearling introduces readers to a world as fully imagined and terrifying as that of The Hunger Games, with characters as vivid and intriguing as those of The Game of Thrones, and a wholly original heroine. Johansen's debut novel is the first in a trilogy.

3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd. Beaverton, OR 503 228 4651

The Todd Glass Situation (Simon and Schuster) is a hilarious, poignant memoir from comedian Todd Glass about his decision at age 48 to finally live openly as a gay man — and the reactions and support from his comedy pals, from Louis C.K. to Sarah Silverman. Glass offers a front-row seat to the last 30-plus years of comedy history and a deeply personal story about one man's search for acceptance.

  1. High as the Horses' Bridles Signed... New Hardcover $26.00

@ 7:30 pm

1005 W Burnside St. Portland, OR 503 228 4651

Scott Cheshire's High as the Horses' Bridles (Henry Holt) is an urgent, electric debut novel about inheritance, belief, and a father and son divided by a dangerous prophecy. In rhapsodic language steeped in the oral tradition of American evangelism, Cheshire brings us under his spell. Remarkable in scale — moving from 1980 Queens, to sunny present-day California, to a tent revival in 19th-century rural Kentucky — and shot through with the power and danger of belief and the love that binds generations, High as the Horses' Bridles is a bold, heartbreaking debut from a new American voice.

  1. Excavation Signed Edition New Paperback $15.00

@ 7:30 pm

3723 SE Hawthorne Blvd. Portland, OR 503 228 4651

Wendy C. Ortiz was a bookish, insecure girl living with alcoholic parents in the late 1980s and early '90s. Her relationship with a charming and deeply flawed private school teacher 15 years her senior appeared to give her the kind of power teenagers wish for. Her teacher — now a registered sex offender — continually encouraged her passion for writing while making her promise she was not leaving any written record about their dangerous sexual relationship. In Excavation: A Memoir (Future Tense Books), a beautifully written and powerful story of a woman reclaiming her whole heart, the black and white of the standard victim/perpetrator stereotype gives way to unsettling grays. Ortiz will be joined in conversation by Kevin Sampsell, Ortiz's editor and publisher of Future Tense Books.
