March Events at Bookworks Include Mohsin Hamid, Marjorie Agosin, TaraShea Nesbit and More
March brings another round of both nationally-touring authors and local authors to the Bookworks' event calendar. The first half of the month, internationally acclaimed novelists Mohsin Hamid and Jan-Philipp Sendker visit with new novels. Hamid, at Bookworks March 5, will present his latest novel, How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia, just released in paper by Penguin. The book is told in first-person, as a satirical how-to based on the life of a young ambitious business man in Asia who falls in love, falls out of love, and tries to strike it rich as an industrialist. Sendker, a German fiction writer, will read from his new book, A Well-Tempered Heart, the sequel to his much-loved The Art of Hearing Heartbeats, at Bookworks on March 11.
On March 13, the Minimalists, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, will talk about the life-altering affects of leading a simple life. With a new book, Everything that Remains, the Minimalists expand upon the work they've created on their popular blog theminimalists.com.
March 25, award-winning cartoonist Stephan Pastis visits Bookworks on tour for a new Pearls Before Swine collection, Pearls Fall Fast. Pastis' humor will be on full-display and what promises to be a fun, visual evening that will feature new and old work from Pearls before Swine treasury and a new book, Timmy Failure.
Bookworks collaborates with Women and Creativity for several events with women authors in March, including two features with authors Marjorie Agosin and TaraShea Nesbit.
Agosin will talk about her new YA novel, I Lived on Butterfly Hill, March 8 at 1pm at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. About a young woman who must flee war-torn Chile, the novel draws from Agosin's own experiences growing up in dictatorial Chile. TaraShea Nesbit's book also gives voice to women-this time the wives of Los Alamos scientists-in a new novel published by Bloomsbury, The Wives of Los Alamos. Nesbit's novel is receiving acclaim and attention from the American Booksellers Association as an early Indie favorite. She will present the book March 9 at 3pm at Bookworks.
