The Eagle Tree by Ned Hayes

Sunday • March 26 • 4pm

Mill Creek store

Fourteen-year-old March Wong knows everything there is to know about trees. For this young, autistic boy, trees are a passion and an obsession. March is devastated when he learns that the Eagle Tree—a monolithic Ponderosa Pine near his home in Olympia—is slated to be cut down by developers. Now, he will do anything in his power to save this beloved tree, including enlisting unlikely support from relatives, classmates, and even his bitter neighbor. But even if he manages to save the tree, March may be putting himself and his mother at risk by taking a stand. Intertwining themes of humanity and ecology, The Eagle Tree eloquently explores what it means to be part of a family, a society, and the natural world.

Ties by Domenico Starnone

Monday • March 27 • 6pm

The book store cafe fireside

Unravel the emotional knots of a messy marriage.

Charmingly intimate, disarmingly chatty, and laced with some walloping surprises, this short, expertly crafted novel so charmed Pulitzer Prize winner Jhumpa Lahiri in its original Italian that she translated it into English.

Author Domenico Starnone has frequently been suspected of being behind the award-winning works of pen name Elena Ferrante. The current top suspect is Starnone's wife.

His new novel is a meditation on what we gain when we love, what we lose when we love too much, and just who is affected when love goes wrong.

Starnone's natural theatricality and full-bodied characters, combined with a sneaky, clever plot riddled with unexpected potholes, makes for a delightful book about love—the frustrated, truncated, too much and not-quite-enough love that holds families together.

The Sellout by Paul Beatty

Wednesday • March 29 • 6:30pm

Mill Creek store

Paul Beatty's award-winning satire is a droll, biting look at racism in modern America. Born in an "agrarian ghetto" located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, the narrator resigns himself to the fate of lower-middle-class Californians: "I'd die in the same bedroom I'd grown up in, looking up at the cracks in the stucco ceiling that've been there since '68 quake." But when his neighborhood is erased from the map by gentrification, he decides to bring it back by segregating the local school and reinstating slavery. The Sellout gleefully catalogues offensive racial stereotypes, but also reaches further, questioning what exactly constitutes black identity in America. Prepare for outrageous caricatures, comedic genius and scorching social critique.
