Authors at Third Place Books January 18 - 22

Saturday, January 15, 2011

Third Place Books at LFP Towne Centre is a major stop on the book circuit for 
authors promoting new books. Authors generally read from their books, sometimes answer a few questions, and then autograph the copies that people have purchased. Most of the events take place in The Den, a cozy area in the middle of the store.

Poser : My Life in Twenty – Three Yoga Poses (FSG)
Tuesday, January 18 at 7pm
Poser is unlike any other book about yoga you will read—because it is actually a book about life. Witty and heartfelt, sharp and irreverent, Poser is for anyone who has ever tried to stand on their head while keeping both feet on the ground. 
Check out the review in the New York Times.   And the review in The Seattle Times.

Jessica, a young runner, loses a leg in a car accident and isn’t comforted by news that she’ll be able to walk again with the help of a prosthetic leg.  But then she meets Rosa, a young woman with CP, who helps her to see through her current state of mind and decides that she isn’t just going to run again, she’s going to take Rosa with her.

Book of Days
Saturday, January 22 at 6:30pm
Cameron Vaux’s father tells him of the “book with all the days in it”  – which records the past, present, and future of every soul on Earth.  Thus begins a frantic search for the book in Central Oregon as a New Age guru begins his nefarious quest for the book as well.  It’s a race against time and the delicacy of memories slipping silently away.
