Annie Bloom's welcomes Denver writer, professor, and literary journal editor Joanna Luloff to read from her debut novel, Remind Me Again What Happened.

Claire wakes in a hospital room in the Florida Keys. She has no idea how she got there or why. The loss of so many memories is paralyzing. Some things she can piece together by looking at old photos saved by her husband, Charlie, and her best friend, Rachel, and by combing through boxes of letters and casual jottings. But she senses a mystery at the center of all these fragments of her past, a feeling that something is not complete. Is Charlie still her husband? Is Rachel still her friend?

Told from alternating points of view that pull the reader into the minds of the three characters, the story unfolds as the smudge that covers Claire's memory is gradually, steadily wiped away, until finally she can understand the why and the how of her life. And then maybe she and Charlie and Rachel can move forward, but with their lives forever changed.

In Remind Me Again What Happened, debut novelist Joanna Luloff has written a moving and beautifully nuanced story of transience, the ebb and flow of time, and how relationships shift and are reconfigured by each day, hour, and minute.

Annie Bloom's Books welcomes children's authors Jane Kurtz, Trudy Ludwig, and Cate Berry to read from their latest books.

Jane Kurtz's new book is What Do They Do with All That Poo?. There are so many different kinds of animals at the zoo, and they each make lots and lots (and sometimes LOTS ) of poo. So what do zoos do with all of that poo? This zany, fact-filled romp explores zoo poo, from cube-shaped wombat poo to white hyena scat, and all of the places it ends up, including in science labs and elephant-poo paper--even backyard gardens.

In Trudy Ludwig's Quiet Please, Owen McPhee!, Owen doesn't just like to talk, he LOVES to talk. He spends every waking minute chattering away at his teachers, his classmates, his parents, his dog, and even himself. But all that talking can get in the way of listening. And when Owen wakes up with a bad case of laryngitis, it gives him a much-needed opportunity to hear what others have to say.

Cate Berry's latest is Penguin and Tiny Shrimp Don't Do Bedtime!. They DO NOT have a bedtime story to share with you. There are no soft beds or cozy covers here. There are fireworks! And shark-infested waters!! This book will never make you sleepy. Not at all. Not even a little. . .
