"James, a mixed-blood Navajo in his twenties . . . begins his life-transforming odyssey: getting used to ranch-life, getting into alcohol-drug trouble and serving jail-time, working as a tour-guide at Hubbell Trading Post, getting involved with heavy metal rez band, Putrefaction, in which he plays guitar. A Navajo story, a good one! Yes, read it."--Simon J. Ortiz, Acoma Pueblo native, author of Out There Somewhere and from Sand Creek

Kathy and her son Brendan (who co wrote the book) will be doing the event with her!
 Tory Brennan, niece of acclaimed forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (of the Bones novels and hit TV show), is the leader of a ragtag band of teenage "sci-philes" who live on a secluded island off the coast of South Carolina. When the group rescues a dog caged for medical testing on a nearby island, they are exposed to an experimental strain of canine parvovirus that changes their lives forever.
As the friends discover their heightened senses and animal-quick reflexes, they must combine their scientific curiosity with their newfound physical gifts to solve a cold-case murder that has suddenly become very hot--if they can stay alive long enough to catch the killer's scent.
Fortunately, they are now more than friends--they're a pack. They are Virals.

The New York Times bestseller by the former governor and presidential candidate-an instant classic, reissued for 2010. 

Christmas has become synonymous with shopping, overindulging, and stress. But according to Mike Huckabee, that was never God's intention. Going back to the Nativity, Christmas is supposed to be about simple things: faith, love, family, and hope. The hard part, in today's crazy world, is remembering that those simple things are the most precious. 

Huckabee recounts twelve Christmas memories that range from his childhood in Arkansas to his years as a young husband and father to his time as a governor and then a presidential candidate. These true stories will help you smile, take a deep breath, and maybe slow down your own holiday treadmill. 

For instance, as kids, Mike and his sister would sneak open their gifts before Christmas, play with them, then rewrap them so their parents wouldn't notice. The plan worked great until one Christmas when young Mike unwrapped a brand-new football...that was covered in mud. That led to a powerful lesson about patience and a reminder that the best Christmases are the simple ones.
