Tonight at The Ivy Bookshop: FREE STATE REVIEW LAUNCH PARTY

FREE STATE REVIEW LAUNCH PARTY

THE IVY BOOKSHOP AND FREE STATE REVIEW

Thursday, September 18, 2014 – 7:00pm

Join us for a night of some snazzy lit by Free State Review Issue 4 contributors Jenny Keith, Timmy Reed and The Ivy Bookshop’s very own Kyle Solomon.

 BY THE AUTHOR

Jenny Keith’s fiction, poems, essays and reviews have appeared in City Paper, The Pearl, Swanee Theological Review, the Patuxent Review, and The Nebraska Review. Jenny lives in Baltimore where she collects estate tea, and plays bass guitar for Batworth Stone.

Timmy Reed is the author of the short story collection Tell God I Don’t Exist, and has a novel forthcoming from Dig That Book Co. The Marylander’s recent work has appeared in Akashic Books, Vol. 1 Brooklyn, Everyday Genius, Atticus Review, and Necessary Fiction.

Kyle Solomon is a puzzle of sorts. The lifelong Baltimore native has yet to taste crab. Trying to make sense of this, he majored in Philosophy at Towson University. He subsequently applied his existentialism to running the light-board op/tech for a handful of shows with Run of the Mill Theater Company. His only other poem was published in The New Poet.

Tonight at The Ivy Bookshop – NATALIE WEXLER: THE OBSERVER

NATALIE WEXLER: THE OBSERVER

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 – 7:00pm

Natalie Wexler takes us back in time to a Baltimore we’d hardly recognize to discuss her newest title of historical fiction.

Baltimore 1807: Eliza Anderson, 26 years old, defies prevailing ideas about a woman’s proper place to become editor of the Observer, a magazine that blends serious commentary and satire. But while Eliza mocks her neighbors, someone in her household is observing her — and feeding scandalous information to her enemies.

Based on real events and incorporating excerpts from actual publications, The Observer sheds light on an era when the young nation was both insecure and feisty. At the same time, it spins a universal tale of forbidden ambition, frustrated love, and ultimately, hard-won empathy across boundaries of class and culture.

Natalie Wexler is the author of two previous novels, The Mother Daughter Show and the award-winning historical novel, A More Obedient Wife. She is the editor of the blogGreater Greater Education, which focuses on public education in Washington, D.C., and a reviewer for the Washington Independent Review of Books. She has also worked as a freelance writer and essayist, a newspaper reporter, a Supreme Court law clerk, a legal historian, and (briefly) an actual lawyer. She lives in Washington, D.C., with her husband.

Tomorrow at The Ivy Bookshop: DAN FESPERMAN LAUNCH PARTY

 fesperman unmanned-1

Dan Fesperman Launch Party

Tuesday, August 12th 7pm

Click Here to RSVP

Dan Fesperman launches his new novel of suspense and intrigue.

Unmanned is a psychologically gripping descent into the eerie realm of drone warfare, led by one pilot’s risky quest to expose its darkest secrets.

As an F-16 fighter pilot, Darwin Cole was a family man on top of his world. Now he’s a washout – drunk and alone in a trailer in the Nevada desert, and haunted by what he saw on the display of the Predator drone he “piloted,” especially by the memory of an Afghan child running for her life. He reluctantly teams up with three journalists seeking to discover the identity of the anonymous – and possibly rogue – intelligence operative who called the shots in Cole’s ill-fated drone mission. But in a surveillance culture, even the well-intentioned must sometimes run for their lives, especially when what they’re tracking leads to the very heart of that culture – in intelligence, in the military, and among the unchecked private contractors who stand to profit richly from the advancing technology . . . technology not just for use “over there,” but for right here, right now.

Dan Fesperman‘s travels as a writer have taken him to thirty countries and three war zones. Lie in the Dark won the Crime Writers’ Association of Britain’s John Creasey Memorial Dagger Award for best first crime novel, The Small Boat of Great Sorrows won their Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award for best thriller, and The Prisoner of Guantanamo won the Dashiell Hammett Award from the International Association of Crime Writers. He lives in Baltimore.

The Haunting Of Hill House

By SHIRLEY JACKSON,LAURA MILLER

$15.00

The classic supernatural thriller by an author who helped define the genre.

First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a “haunting”; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.
