Melanie Benjamin, author of THE SWANS OF FIFTH AVENUE, THE AVIATOR’S WIFE, and most recently, THE GIRLS IN THE PICTURE, is here giving a presentation about the birth of Hollywood, the first movies (silent), and two of the women that made it all possible: Mary Pickford and Frances Marion, the most recognized actress of old Hollywood, and the highest paid screenwriter (and most awarded) of their time.
It was a fascinating time when women and men held equal standing in the film business, when women had a hand in starting some of the most influential processes and companies. Thanks to everyone who came out in the cold to see Melanie Benjamin!

Pierce Brown's Red Rising Saga fast became a bookseller favorite here at BookPeople, and we couldn’t be happier that Brown is returning to our hallowed halls.
In IRON GOLD he returns to our beloved golden son and sets the stage for the new players to enter. Unsurprisingly, it already comes recommended by master bookseller Thomas who says "With new characters, bigger stakes, and the same sense of epic scope, Brown brings us back to the world of Red Rising in a future that never became what was promised. As ever, Brown writes a fast and thrilling action-adventure story that dives far deeper than it's thrilling facade and questions the very nature of humanity." And guess what? Our favorite valentine is coming back to BookPeople NEXT WEEK! Don't miss Pierce Brown, here at BookPeople January 22nd at 7PM! Our Ludicrous Speed book club will be meeting before the event at 6PM to discuss the first three Red Rising books if you'd like to join us!

In RED CLOCKS, Leni Zumas imagines a future in which women's reproductive rights are fiercely regulated--abortion is illegal and dangerous, in-vitro fertilization has been criminalized, and no one may adopt unless partnered. Beautifully written, Zumas' story is perfect for readers of Margaret Atwood and Octavia Butler. Our booksellers are so excited that it's finally out! Hanna and Sara have high praise --Hanna says "Zumas beautifully wove the stories of five women together and gave each individual a strong & unique voice while also maintaining suspension of belief. These characters felt real and this world felt possible. I suspect this will be one of the best books published in 2018." And Sarah says "In RED CLOCKS, Leni Zumas does a fantastic job of exploring the question "what is a woman for?" with five very different characters. Zumas’s writing is refreshingly unique, and each thread of this story finds its perfect place as the main characters are drawn together.” This is one killer novel, y’all! If you loved THE HANDMAIDS TALE, or THE POWER, check out RED CLOCKS!

Check out the covers on these new fiction releases!! We try really hard not to judge books by their covers, but we might drool just a little over the prettiest ones.
On the left: MUNICH by Robert Harris—From the internationally best-selling author of FATHERLAND and the Cicero Trilogy—MUNICH is a new spy thriller about treason and conscience, loyalty, and betrayal, set against the backdrop of the fateful Munich Conference of September 1938. Plus, we got SIGNED COPIES! Don't miss out on this thrilling new novel from Robert Harris!
In the center: This beautiful debut novel has been highly anticipated by some of our booksellers for it's deeply felt narrative of a sibling relationship, one sister a protector, and the other sister who lives her life on the grandest scale until she's torn back to earth by her mental illness. Told in alternating points of view, EVERYTHING HERE IS BEAUTIFUL is, at its heart, the story of a young woman’s quest to find fulfillment and a life unconstrained by her illness. But it’s also an unforgettable, gut-wrenching story of the sacrifices we make to truly love someone—and when loyalty to one’s self must prevail over all.
And on the right: An exhilarating, original novel, set in Brazil, Idaho, and outer space, about an obsessive librarian, a down-at-heel author, and a Mormon historian who go on the hunt for a mystical, life-changing book—and find it. The INFINITE FUTURE is only Tim Wirkus' second novel but it's a wild ride and a half through a fantastic landscape that gets stranger at every turn--a deep nesting egg of story. Plus can you really resist these covers?

LARGESSE OF THE SEA MAIDEN is the long-awaited follow-up to JESUS', SON, and the final collection of stories from the beloved American writer Denis Johnson. Our booksellers can't recommend it highly enough! Master bookseller Uriel says "LARGESSE OF THE SEA MAIDEN bookends the career of a great American writer. It is with the same brutal honesty of JESUS' SON that Johnson captures a feeling of mortality and regret that pervade each page of this haunting collection."And Events Coordinator Lindsey says "What can I say besides: I love Denis Johnson, and everything he touched turns to gold, and these stories are deeply sad and seem to predict his death in such a poetic, beautiful, visceral way. Such an important writer with a recognizably strong voice. This is a book to be cherished." Don't miss the final stories from Denis Johnson!

It’s cold out there folks, the perfect time to curl up with some new reads! These two new books are for upcoming events and we’re thrilled that they’re finally on our shelves.
On the right: We're so excited to be hosting the bestselling author of THE SWANS OF FIFTH AVENUE and THE AVIATOR'S WIFE, Melanie Benjamin, for her new historical novel THE GIRLS IN THE PICTURE. This beautiful book is about the creative friendship between two old Hollywood icons, Frances Marion and Mary Pickford, and the exhilarating early years of Hollywood. It explores the concepts of power, women, and female friendships--we can't wait for the event with Melanie Benjamin TOMORROW NIGHT (Jan 17) at 7PM!
On the left: Stefan Merrill Block’s first two novels were widely praised for their lyrical intensity and keen emotional insight. Now comes his most ambitious and satisfying novel yet, a mesmerizing, compulsively readable look at the complicated threads that bind a family, and what happens when those ties are tested by tragedy. Oliver Loving was shot while at school and has been in a coma ever since. But when new technology promises to give voice to the unconscious Oliver, could it answer all the lingering questions and bring a torn up family back together? Author Stefan Merrill Block will be here at 7PM January 31st for what is sure to be an incredible literary event!
