Wednesday September 19th at 5pm: Ready for the freshest new voice in historical fiction? Come meet Signe Pike, author of The Lost Queen. Already compared to Camelot, Outlander and Mists of Avalon, The Lost Queen is the first in an historical fiction trilogy about the life of Languoreth, a forgotten queen of sixth century Scotland, and the twin sister of the man who inspired the legend of Merlin. In a land of mountains and mist, tradition and superstition, Languoreth must assume her duty to fight for the preservation of the Old Way and the survival of her kingdom, or risk losing them both forever.
We were all enchanted by Signe when she visited the store several years back when her memoir, Faery Tale, was released, and are thrilled to have her back for the launch of her first novel. Signe's beautiful writing, historical precision, and magical storytelling will transport you to a world where bravery, loyalty and conflicted love reign—a world that you won't want to leave. Hope you can join us to meet this amazing women and get an insider's look into new scholarship (based on six years of research and travels) that's brought this lost queen to life.

Friday September 21st at 4pm: join author and photographer Nonnie Thompson as she reads from her memoir, Time it Was: Memoir of a Modern Pioneer. On an icy Rocky Mountain highway, the winter sun was setting on a teenaged girl hitchhiking alone. In the 1970s Nonnie Thompson was running away from her parents’ home yearning for the freedom and wildness of a pioneer wagon train. She found what she was looking for in a Colorado commune. Time it Was captures the youthful enthusiasm of those years while tracing the joys and sorrows of a woman who lived them deeply.
Sunday September 23rd at 2pm: local author and life coach, Claudine Nordren is launching her children's book Quigley the Quiet Hedgehog with a reading and signing. Quigley is a self-confident, assertive hedgehog who enjoys reading, creating, adventure, friends, and solitude. In a world where the extrovert ideal is celebrated, Quigley stands up for the introvert and demonstrates finding freedom in serenity. Aimed at preschool and elementary aged children, this colorful storybook with hand-painted illustrations encourages the quiet temperament at home, at school, and in social situations.
Tuesday September 25th in the Finkel Auditorium in the Breckenridge CMC at 6 pm Helen Thorpe will be discussing her latest book Newcomers: Finding Refuge, Friendship, and Hope in an American Classroom . In her book she tells personal stories of child refugees as they integrate into American society, focusing on one classroom in South High School in Denver, Colorado. Thorpe dives deep into the lives of 22 students, all refugees, who were just some of the many who enrolled in South High School's newcomer class, a basic English acquisition class taught by kindhearted Eddie Williams. The students came from the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America, running from civil war, extreme persecution, drought, famine, and a variety of other atrocities. As in her previous books, Thorpe writes with great compassion, and she demonstrates a profound understanding of how difficult it must have been for these children to leave everything they'd ever known and move to a foreign country where the language, customs, and culture were so vastly different.
