An Evening with Lesley Nneka Arimah
Friday, April 20th, 6:30-8:30pm

How do stories of war live on in memories, families, and nations? This event with Lesley Nneka Arimah, author of the award-winning collection of short stories “What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky” and 2017 Kirkus Prize winner, will explore how human experiences of war filter down through generations—both at home and in public life.
In an engaging, unfiltered dialogue with Minnesota author and educator Marian Hassan, Arimah will discuss war, grief, girlhood, and human connection as she draws on her short fiction and personal experience.
Don’t miss this final event in our four-part War and Memory discussion series with lauded, celebrated, and inspiring authors! 
Reception and book signing to follow.

This is a ticketed event.  Please purchase tickets here.

Independent Bookstore Day
April 28th, 2018 11am-5pm

Rain Taxi's Twin Cities Literary Calendar is teaming up with 18 great independent bookstores in the Twin Cities to celebrate Independent Bookstore Day on Saturday, April 28. For patrons of our vibrant bookstore community, Rain Taxi has printed up the 2018 Twin Cities Independent Bookstore Passport. Jam-packed with bookstore coupons and illustrations by local artist Kevin Cannon, the Passport is the best way to maximize your Independent Bookstore Day experience—and if you get it stamped at multiple stores, you might just win big!
 Passports will be available to pick up at any of the participating bookstores on April 28 only. Get your Passport stamped at every location you visit, because each and every stamp activates a store coupon. Visiting multiple stores will increase your chance of winning gift cards, literary prize packs, and a grand prize worth over $500 in books!

Check here for details on all participating bookstores and the prize packs you could win!

At Addendum Books, in addition to participating in the passport above, we will be offering complimentary coffee, tea, and treats (until they run out).  For every customer who spends $100 or more, we have book-related t-shirts for free (while supplies last).  In addition, select books will be on sale!  We look forward to seeing you at Addendum on Saturday, April 28th!



  
Sixteen-year-old werewolf princess Ashling Boru is different from other wolves—she was able to shift to wolf form at birth. Rather than bringing pride to her family, it brings fear, and as a result, she is forced to live in seclusion in Ireland’s countryside. Ashling’s reputation is further blackened when she refuses her betrothed and defies the ancient laws. When her pack’s oldest rivals begin hunting her, she finds herself in the small town of York Harbor, Maine—far from everything she’s ever known.
In Maine, she crosses paths with the dark and rebellious Grey Donavan, and something ignites within her soul. There’s just one problem: Grey is human. Their instant connection turns into a passionate romance, and Ashling begins to believe she can create her own life outside of wolf laws. When she begins to uncover long-buried pack secrets—secrets that threaten to destroy all she holds dear—Ashling’s courage and tenacity are tested. Will she choose her deep and enduring love for Grey, or will she follow Old Mother’s path to her destiny?
