BH: Jessica Hornik reads and signs, A Door on the River.

In this remarkable first book, Hornik's poems carry a quiet power rooted in nature, place, and family. We find our own lives in hers--in lyrics that sing of the natural world, the close-held territory of home, the unvoiced drama of family life, of what it means to be the "Invisible Woman." A Door on the River marks the emergence of a beautiful, confident voice in the landscape of American poetry.

BH: David Pietrusza signs and discusses, TR's Late War.

An amazingly fresh approach to a much covered subject.... TR's Last War is a riveting new account of Theodore Roosevelt's impassioned crusade for military preparedness as America fitfully stumbles into World War I, spectacularly punctuated by his unique tongue-lashings of the vacillating Woodrow Wilson, his rousing advocacy of a masculine, pro-Allied "Americanism," a death-defying compulsion for personal front-line combat, a tentative rapprochement with GOP power brokers--and, yes, perhaps, even another presidential campaign. Roosevelt is a towering Greek god of war.

BH: Miriam Pawel will be signing her newest book, The Browns of California: The Family Dynasty

A Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist's panoramic history of California and its impact on the nation, from the Gold Rush to Silicon Valley-told through the lens of the family dynasty that led the state for nearly a quarter century.

Even in the land of reinvention, the story is exceptional: Pat Brown, the beloved father who presided over California during an era of unmatched expansion; Jerry Brown, the cerebral son who became the youngest governor in modern times--and then returned three decades later as the oldest.

BH: Fran Yardley signs and discusses, Finding True North:A History of One Small Corner of the Adirondacks.

In 1968 Fran and Jay Yardley, a young couple with pioneering spirit, moved to a remote corner of the Adirondacks to revive the long-abandoned but historic Bartlett Carry Club, with its one thousand acres and thirty-seven buildings. The Saranac Lake-area property had been in Jay's family for generations, and his dream was to restore this summer resort to support himself and, eventually, a growing family. Fran chronicles their journey and, along the way, unearths the history of those who came before, from the 1800s to the present.

BH Alan Ballard signs and discusses, Keep on Moving!: An Old Fellow's Journey Into the World of Rollators, Mobile Scooters, Recumbent Trikes, Adult Trikes and Electric Bike .

This book chronicles one senior citizen's struggle to maintain his independence when he is forced, at age 85, to stop driving. In an effort to maintain his mobility and avoid the ever-threatening wheelchair, he plunges into a search for something -- be it a rollator, recumbent bike or adult trike -- to substitute for the loss of his beloved car, his personal chariot. He knows that bikes of all sorts are used for transportation and commuting in Europe. Why not here?
