AZAR NAFISI: THE REPUBLIC OF IMAGINATION

THE IVY BOOKSHOP

Wednesday, December 3, 2014 – 7:00pm

Critically acclaimed author Azar Nafisi defends her position that Americans do care about books.

 By The Author

Ten years ago, Azar Nafisi electrified readers with her million-copy bestseller, Reading Lolita in Tehran, which told the story of how, against the backdrop of morality squads and executions, she taught The Great Gatsby and other classics to her eager students in Iran. In this exhilarating follow up, Nafisi has written the book her fans have been waiting for: an impassioned, beguiling, and utterly original tribute to the vital importance of fiction in a democratic society. What Reading Lolita in Tehran was for Iran, The Republic of Imagination is for America.  Read More

As the American century draws to an uneasy close, Philip Roth gives us a novel of unqualified greatness that is an elegy for all our century’s promises of prosperity, civic order, and domestic bliss. Roth’s protagonist is Swede Levov, a legendary athlete at his Newark high school, who grows up in the booming postwar years to marry a former Miss New Jersey, inherit his father’s glove factory, and move into a stone house in the idyllic hamlet of Old Rimrock.

Carine McCandless: The Wild Truth

Thursday, November 13, 2014 – 7:00pm

Carine McCandless opens up about the family life and upbringing that contributed to her brother’s inspiring adventure and untimely end.

  By The Author

In April 1992, a young man named Chris McCandless walked into the Alaska wilderness, where he survived for more than 100 days before perishing in an abandoned bus. For over twenty years his story has captivated millions, and yet only one person knew the truth behind his remarkable journey– until now.

Through a tumultuous childhood, the McCandless siblings clung to each other amidst a chaotic home life, forming a lifelong bond and an unbreakable trust. So when Chris forged an anonymous existence on the road, Carine understood what drove Chris away from all he had known. Having to face her own truth, Carine embarked on a unique journey finding strength in the love and connection she shared with her now absent brother.

Carine McCandless is an entrepreneur, activist and mother. She has been successfully self-employed since she started her first company at the age of nineteen. As a public speaker her presentations are featured in education and corporate venues across the United States. Carine’s memoir, The Wild Truth, will be released on October 21st.

Carine is the sister of literary icon Chris Mcandless, a.k.a. Alexander Supertramp, whose life story captured the hearts of millions of people around the world. She played a vital role in the success of Into the Wild, the internationally bestselling book written by Jon Krakauer. Krakauer endorses Carine as “a gifted communicator, she is engaging, inspiring, and bracingly outspoken.” Into the Wild sold millions of copies in thirty-one languages and is required reading at universities all over the globe including the U.S., U.K., Italy, Germany, Canada and France.

Generic Drugs: What You Should Know About Their Surprising History And Use

THE IVY BOOKSHOP AND JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY

Co-sponsored with Johns Hopkins University Press and the Johns Hopkins Healthy Living Program.

Wednesday, October 29, 2014 – 7:00pm

Generic drugs are now familiar objects in clinics, drugstores, and households around the world. We like to think of these tablets, capsules, patches, and ointments as interchangeable with their brand-name counterparts: why pay more for the same? And yet they are not quite the same. They differ in price, in place of origin, in color, shape, and size, in the dyes, binders, fillers, and coating used, and in a host of other ways. Claims of generic equivalence, as physician-historian Jeremy Greene reveals in this gripping narrative, are never based on being identical to the original drug in all respects, but in being the same in all ways that matter.

Book Club Pick From the Ivy Bookshop – Book Worms Book Club

Starting this week, Baltimore Fishbowl will feature a current read from a local book club that is currently registered with the Ivy. Lucky for us, their pics are noted online at Club Ivy.

This week’s pick from the Book Worms Book Club:

When Britain Burned the White House: The 1814 Invasion of Washington (Hardcover)

$25.99
Usually Ships in 1-5 days

Description


In August 1814, the United States army was defeated just outside Washington, D.C., by the world’s greatest military power. President James Madison and his wife had just enough time to flee the White House before the British invaders entered. British troops stopped to feast on the meal still sitting on the Madisons’ dining-room table before setting the White House on fire. The extent of the destruction was massive; finished in wood rather than marble, everything inside the mansion was combustible. Only the outer stone walls would withstand the fire.

The tide of the War of 1812 would quickly turn, however. Less than a month later, American troops would stand victorious at the Battle of Fort McHenry. Poet Francis Scott Key, struck by the sight of the American flag waving over Fort McHenry, jotted down the beginnings of a poem that would be set to music and become the U.S. national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner.”

In his compelling narrative style, Peter Snow recounts the fast-changing fortunes of that summer’s extraordinary confrontations. Drawing from a wealth of material, including eyewitness accounts, Snow describes the colorful personalities on both sides of those spectacular events: including the beleaguered President James Madison and First Lady Dolley, American heroes such as Joshua Barney and Sam Smith, and flawed military leaders like Army Chief William Winder and War Secretary John Armstrong. On the British side, Snow re-creates the fiery Admiral George Cockburn, the cautious but immensely popular Major General Robert Ross, and sharp-eyed diarists James Scott and George Gleig.

When Britain Burned the White House highlights this unparalleled moment in British and American history, the courageous, successful defense of Fort McHenry and the American triumph that would follow, and America’s and Britain’s decision to never again fight each other.

About the Author


PETER SNOW is a highly respected British journalist, author, and broadcaster. He was ITN’s diplomatic and defence correspondent from 1966 to 1979 and presented Newsnight from 1980 to 1997. An indispensable part of election nights, he has also covered military matters on and off the world’s battlefields for forty years. Peter is married and has six children.

Praise for When Britain Burned the White House: The 1814 Invasion of Washington…


“[An] excellent account…Snow, an experienced British journalist, has told the story of those engagements with brio and a fine gift for making sense of the complexities of battle… a fine example of serious and literate popular history… It ranks with Anthony S. Pitch’s fine “The Burning of Washington” (2000) as among the best accounts of a war that hardly deserves to be forgotten.”—Washington Post

“With ample quotes from English letters and diaries, Snow ably brings out the humanity of his subjects.”—Kirkus Reviews

Keith Donohue: The Boy Who Drew Monsters

Wednesday, October 22, 2014 – 7:00pm

Celebrate Halloween early with Keith Donohue and a hair-raising discussion of his newest novel.

By The Author

Ever since he nearly drowned in the ocean three years earlier, ten-year-old Jack Peter Keenan has been deathly afraid to venture outdoors. Refusing to leave his home in a small coastal town in Maine, Jack Peter spends his time drawing monsters. When those drawings take on a life of their own, no one is safe from the terror they inspire. His mother, Holly, begins to hear strange sounds in the night coming from the ocean, and she seeks answers from the local Catholic priest and his Japanese housekeeper, who fill her head with stories of shipwrecks and ghosts. His father, Tim, wanders the beach, frantically searching for a strange apparition running wild in the dunes. And the boy’s only friend, Nick, becomes helplessly entangled in the eerie power of the drawings. While those around Jack Peter are haunted by what they think they see, only he knows the truth behind the frightful occurrences as the outside world encroaches upon them all.

In the tradition of The Turn of the Screw, Keith Donohue’s The Boy Who Drew Monsters is a mesmerizing tale of psychological terror and imagination run wild, a perfectly creepy read for a dark night.

Keith Donohue is an American novelist, the author of the national bestseller The Stolen Child, Centuries of June and Angels of Destruction. He has also written reviews for The Washington Post. Donohue has a Ph.D. in English with a specialization in modern Irish literature and wrote the introduction to the Complete Novels of Flann O’Brien.
