NYMBC Presents DANA REINHARDT & WHITNEY MILLER at Books Inc. Opera Plaza

Join Not Your Mother's Book Club™ for a launch party celebrating award-winning author Dana Reinhardt's latest great work, We Are the Goldens. Nell worships her older sister, Layla. They're one unit, intertwined: Nellayla. As Nell and her best friend, Felix, start their freshman year in high school, on Layla's turf, there's so much Nell looks forward to. But the year takes a very different turn. Layla is changing, withdrawing.  She's hiding something, and when Nell discovers what it is, and the consequences it might have, she struggles.

Dana will be in conversation with local debut author Whitney Miller, author of The Violet HourSome call VisionCrest the pinnacle of religious enlightenment.

Others call it a powerful cult.

For seventeen years, Harlow Wintergreen has called it her life.

As the adopted daughter of VisionCrest's patriarch, Harlow is expected to be perfect at all times. The other Ministry teens must see her as a paragon of integrity. The world must see her as a future leader.

Despite the constant scrutiny, Harlow has managed to keep a dark and dangerous secret, even from her best friend and the boy she loves. She hears a voice in her head that seems to have a mind of its own, plaguing her with violent and bloody visions. It commands her to kill. And the urge to obey is getting harder and harder to control . . .

Praise: "The Violet Hour takes readers on a dark, delicious thrill ride . . . [a] gripping debut."--Gwenda Bond, author of The Woken Gods

The Jewish Community Library presents DARA HORN

The Jewish Community Library presents Dara Horn, author of A Guide for the Perplexed. Dara will be in conversation with executive director of the Contemporary Jewish Museum, Lori Starr.

About the book: Software prodigy Josie Ashkenazi has invented an application that records everything its users do. When an Egyptian library invites her to visit as a consultant, her jealous sister Judith persuades her to go. But in Egypt s postrevolutionary chaos, Josie is abducted leaving Judith free to take over Josie s life at home, including her husband and daughter, while Josie s talent for preserving memories becomes a surprising test of her empathy and her only means of escape.

A century earlier, another traveler arrives in Egypt: Solomon Schechter, a Cambridge professor hunting for a medieval archive hidden in a Cairo synagogue. Both he and Josie are haunted by the work of the medieval philosopher Moses Maimonides, a doctor and rationalist who sought to reconcile faith and science, destiny and free will. But what Schechter finds, as he tracks down the remnants of a thousand-year-old community s once-vibrant life, will reveal the power and perils of what Josie s ingenious work brings into being: a world where nothing is ever forgotten.

An engrossing adventure that intertwines stories from Genesis, medieval philosophy, and the digital frontier, A Guide for the Perplexed is a novel of profound inner meaning and astonishing imagination.
