David Shafer presents Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

10/30/2014 7:00 pm

The Committee, an international cabal of industrialists and media barons, is on the verge of privatizing all information. Dear Diary, an idealistic online Underground, stands in the way of that takeover, using radical politics, classic spycraft, and technology that makes Big Data look like dial-up. Into this secret battle stumbles an unlikely trio: Leila Majnoun, a disillusioned non-profit worker; Leo Crane, an unhinged trustafarian; and Mark Deveraux, a phony self-betterment guru who works for the Committee.

Leo and Mark were best friends in college, but early adulthood has set them on diverging paths. Growing increasingly disdainful of Mark's platitudes, Leo publishes a withering takedown of his ideas online. But the Committee is reading--and erasing--Leo's words. On the other side of the world, Leila's discoveries about the Committee's far-reaching ambitions threaten to ruin those who are closest to her.

In the spirit of William Gibson and Chuck Palahniuk, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is both a suspenseful global thriller and an emotionally truthful novel about the struggle to change the world in- and outside your head.

Susan Winkler presents Portrait of a Woman in White

11/04/2014 7:00 pm

1940, France: The eccentric Rosenswig-Assouline family is immersed in a belle-epoque lifestyle filled with art and antiques in their splendid chateau, Le Paradis, and the Matisse portrait of Lili's mother hangs in their Paris salon. The day before ardent young lovers Lili and her distant cousin Paul plan to marry, the Nazi's invade Paris and they are irrevocably thrust into the pressure cooker of war. The family flees toward Lisbon, but at the border Paul is detained and compelled to join the French army, while Lili is forced ahead to America. As their fortunes fall, Lili and Paul and the others scramble to do what they must to survive while trying to adapt to the emotional devastation. When the beloved Matisse portrait is looted by top Nazi Hermann Goring, their fate is ultimately interwoven with that of their portrait. This is their search for lost love and lost art, set to romance and mystery, inspired by history.

The search for lost family, lost love and lost art was inspired by the Portland author's family history, and while the Rosenswig family is fictitious, other key players and events include the historic, from Matisse and Goring to French museum spy Rose Valland.
