What earth shattering secret is the Vatican hiding? And what connection does it have with a small roadside attraction called Captain Kendrick's Memorial Hot Dog Wildlife Preserve in Skagit County, Washington, and a former Duke University football star? The answer can only be found in Tom Robbin's first novel. A quirky, hilarious tale with memorable characters and a touch of Sixties ideology. One of my favorite novels of all time. - Tim
From Nancy- I must mention again how much I liked, no, loved The Dog Stars by Peter Heller, now in paperback. "A stupendous debut, Heller's voice is both haunted and irresistible. A post-apocalyptic novel with so much emotional truth it reads like a memoir from the future. About a worn-out pilot, his beloved Cessna, his copilot dog and our endless longing for connection — even in a world undone." — Junot Diaz

Mystery fans have a great night ahead, with two authors joining us. Jenny Milchman shares Cover of Snow. Lee Child (who knows a thing or two about thrillers) says it's "everything a great suspense novel should be -- tense, emotional, mysterious and satisfying." Raleigh author and artist Lee Mims brings us Hiding Gladys: A Cleo Cooper Mystery. Her solid debut introduces a plucky geologist and her deerhound, who almost lose their lives in NC.

This quiet, powerful story, set in the High Plains of Colorado, tells how the terminal illness of a much beloved citizen in the community affects his family and friends. It's a beautiful, deeply moving story. - Nancy
