Nina Lorez Collins, What Would Virginia Woolf Do?, Tuesday, April, 17th, Watchung Booksellers

 

http://www.watchungbooksellers.com/event/nina-lorez-collins-what-would-virginia-woolf-do

 

When Nina Collins entered her forties, she found herself awash in a sea of hormones. As symptoms of perimenopause set in, she began to fear losing her health, looks, sexuality and sense of humor- perhaps all at once. Craving a place to discuss her questions and concerns, and finding none, Nina started a Facebook group with the ironic name, "What Would Virginia Woolf Do?”, which has grown exponentially into a place where women most with strong opinions and fierce senses of humor have surprisingly candid, lively, and intimate conversations.

http://www.watchungbooksellers.com/event/elinor-blake-were-going-be-friends

 

In We're Going to be Friends, Elinor uses the signature colors of The White Stripes—red, white, and black—to follow the adventures of the song’s protagonist, Suzy Lee, as she goes to school with her books and pens, looks for bugs, shows and tells, and finds a friend. Fans of The White Stripes will delight in this new way of experiencing the song—and sharing it with their children—while a new generation of music and book lovers will be introduced to the beloved song and its whimsical evocation of the simplicity and nostalgia of childhood, for the first time.

Atmospheric and intense, The Soul of a Thief captures the turbulent emotional rush of those caught behind the lines of occupied France, where one false step could spell death, and every day brings a new struggle to survive. Steven Hartov is a New York Times bestselling author, a former Israeli Defense Forces paratrooper and current New York Guard commander; the book is built from his interesting family history - he had family on both sides of World War II.
