Michael Barsa discusses his debut novel The Garden of Blue Roses @ Flyleaf Books
May 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

A car lies at the bottom of an icy ravine. Slumped over the steering wheel, dead, is the most critically acclaimed horror writer of his time. Was it an accident? His son Milo doesn’t care. For the first time in his life, he’s free. No more nightmarish readings, spooky animal rites, or moonlit visions of his father in the woods with a notebook and vampire make-up.

Or so he thinks.

Milo is forced to confront the power of fictional identity as he uncovers the shocking truth about his own dysfunctional family—and the supposed accident that claimed his parents’ lives.

Seamus McGraw discusses his book, “A Thirsty Land: The Making of an American Water Crisis” @ Flyleaf Books
May 31 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

As a changing climate threatens the whole country with deeper droughts and more furious floods that put more people and property at risk, Texas has become a bellwether state for water debates. Will there be enough water for everyone? Is it in the nature of Americans to adapt to nature in flux?

The most comprehensive—and comprehensible—book on contemporary water issues, A Thirsty Land delves deep into the challenges faced not just by Texas but by the nation as a whole, as we struggle to find a way to balance the changing forces of nature with our ever-expanding needs.
