Breakfast with the Authors
Breakfast with the Authors has been a favorite of Cape Cod’s readers for years. This lively program is held twice a year and features popular authors speaking about their books over breakfast at a local eatery. Afterwards, the authors answer questions from the audience and sign their books.
Our Next Breakfast with the Authors
will be Friday, December 5, 2014, 9:30-11:30
at the Resort and Conference Center,
35 Scudder Avenue in Hyannis.
Arlene Kay, Cape Cod’s doyenne of fiendish and sultry mysteries, returns to Breakfast with the Authors with Gilt Trip, book three of the Boston Uncommons mystery series. Eja Kane joins a dojo hoping to shape up and zone out before her wedding to Boston blueblood Deming Swann. Instead of sweat and spiritual healing, she finds a simmering cauldron of sex, jealousy, and greed. When a con-woman’s corpse literally drops at her feet, Eja and the entire Swann clan plunge into a nasty bullion scam that imperils Deming’s clients and snares even the virtuous in its grip.
One of Cape Cod’s most beloved and prolific writers, Martin W. Sandler proudly presents Imprisoned: The Betrayal of Japanese Americans during World War II. Written for young adults but appropriate for all readers, the book documents the horror and incomprehensibility of locking up American citizens in prison camps simply because of their ethnic ancestry. Filled with moving black and white photographs, Booklist called Imprisoned “a clear view of an episode in American history that still receives too little focus.”
Veterinarian and author Dr. Nick Trout speaks about the charming sequel to his first novel, The Patron Saint of Lost Dogs. Dog Gone, Back Soon is a wild and delightful ride through one jam-packed week, where Dr. Cyrus Mills must figure out how to outsmart an evil veterinary conglomerate, win the heart of the alluring Amy, solve several tricky veterinary cases, find a home for an orphaned dog, and detangle himself from an absurd case of mistaken identity. With humor and charm, this book offers proof that all dogs, lost or not, on four feet or two, deserve a second chance.
The $20 cost of this event ($15 for Cape Cod Writers Center members) includes
a continental breakfast, book talks by three authors, Q and A, and a book signing.
