Annie Bloom's welcomes local writers Penelope Scambly Schott and Sage Cohen for readings and discussions on "Honest Writing about Tough Personal Stuff."

Have you ever wondered what would happen if a mother and daughter could really talk? Penelope Scambly Schott's Serpent Love: A Mother-Daughter Epic is an intimate, intense, and, yes, courageous exploration of a common story, conflict between mother and adult daughter. In this version, the mother’s attempt to help the newly-divorced daughter is definitely not a success. We get the mother’s story in poetry–well-meaning love and terrible anger–and then the daughter’s honest essay in response. Perhaps the writing–or the reading–makes the mending.

Veteran author and writing guide Sage Cohen presents Fierce on the Page. You have everything you need--and you are everything you need--to do the writing you are meant to do. And yet the path to success can be difficult to find and follow. Cohen believes that ferocity is your best compass for finding your true way forward. In this collection of contemplative and inspiring essays, you'll unlock the secrets to naming your deepest desires, eliminating the challenges that hold you back, and committing to your practice. Fierce on the Page is your trustworthy companion for crafting your best writing and your best life.

Warren Easley returns to Annie Bloom's for his latest Cal Claxton mystery, Blood for Wine.

Cal Claxton's old farmhouse sits high in Oregon's Red Hills, home of scores of wineries and some of the most coveted acreage for growing the pinot noir grape in the world. Former Los Angeles prosecutor Cal settled in this haven to reboot his life as a widower, growing a small practice that includes some pro bono work in nearby Portland. Life is good, filled with food, wine, and friends. But this beautiful area is not the idyllic haven it appears to be.

When Cal's neighbor, Jim Kavanaugh, the owner and gifted vintner of an up-and-coming winery, is accused of murdering his wife, his freedom--and the grape harvest--is suddenly in jeopardy along with his reputation, and his business begins to slide. No gentleman farmer, this puts the rugged winemaker's property, his only financial asset, in play. When a blackmail plot is hatched against the owner of adjacent land, it begins to look like a brutal game of real-life Monopoly is underway.

Cal agrees to defend Jim, a good friend, which pulls him reluctantly into the blackmail plot. Emotions are running high over Lori Kavanaugh's bloody death. There is no shortage of suspects. There may be more than the one game in play. And defending Jim might well make Cal the next target of a vicious, cunning killer.
