Upcoming Events

David Davies signing copies of "Mask of Deceit", new Chris Morehouse Novel

Join us as we welcome David Davies, May 28th at Uppercase Bookshop.

He’s back. Chris is on the road again in my latest novel  Mask of Deceit. This time he’s stepped up a bit and is now a contractor for the CIA, no more the unassuming driver at an Embassy, now he’s in the thick of it. Here’s the synopsis cut from the back of the book:

 In this fast-paced, tightly woven espionage story, Chris Morehouse, a British contractor for the CIA, must intercept an assassin in Berlin. The shooter’s target: an Iranian nuclear scientist who wants to defect to the West. With minimal intelligence on the assassin—positioned somewhere in a specific high rise—Chris must find and eliminate the threat.

 One split-second before the trigger pull, Chris realizes the assassin is someone he knows … very well. He freezes in the gut-wrenching decision—save the defector and kill his friend, or fail in his mission and let the shooter go free—and then …

 In Mask of Deceit, David Davies takes readers on a journey that spans the globe from the United Kingdom to Germany, India to Greece, and the United States to Sweden. The plot weaves and spins, pitting intelligence agencies and spies against each other who all have one thing in common—deceit. Will Chris play the pawn and complete his mission, or will he let his emotions rule?

Red Light to Starboard: Recalling the Exxon Valdez Disaster

Join author Angela Day at Uppercase Bookshop, author of Red Light to Starboard. Angela will be signing copies and discussing her book from 1pm to 4pm on Sunday May 29th, 2016.

Four Stars on

“Minutes before supertanker “Exxon Valdez” ran aground on Bligh Reef, before rocks ripped a huge hole in her hull and a geyser of crude oil darkened the pristine waters of Alaska’s Prince William Sound, the ship’s lookout burst through the chart room door. “That light, sir, it’s still on the starboard side. It should be to port, sir.” Her frantic words were merely the last in a litany of futile warnings. “Red Light to Starboard” documents an event that stunned the world– recounting how futile warnings, regional and national history, as well as failed governmental and public policy decisions led to disastrous environmental consequences for a spectacular, fragile ecosystem. Cordova native Bobby Day’s intimate story lends a local fisherman’s perspective and conveys the damage suffered by individuals, communities, and the fishing industry”

Larry Welch at Uppercase Bookshop June 4th

Uppercase Bookshop hosts author Larry Welch on Saturday June 4th, signing copies of his book Read to Me Now Grandpa. 

Help is here for grandparents wanting to acquaint their grandchildren with exceptional children’s books “Read to Me NOW, Grandpa”. When a young grandchild wants to be read to, a grandparent does it right then, regardless of whether or not it is convenient at that particular moment. Larry Welch’s experience, including 20 years of teaching college-level children’s literature courses, has enabled him to write a useful guidebook for grandparents and great-grandparents in Read to Me NOW, Grandpa, A Guide for Sharing Books with Grandchildren. It suggest to grandparents good books that they can share with their grandchildren of many different ages, thereby exposing them to the best in contemporary children’s literature. The books and ideas about how to use them cited in this guidebook will help grandchildren build skills- not only in reading, but also in writing, listening, speaking and imagining. Grandparents have a unique opportunity to foster these skills and attitudes

Anything Goes Book Club - June Meeting

My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry

Join us for another great evening of discussion and debate at the Hungry Pelican on June 29th at 7:00pm.

“My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry”. 

By Frederick Backman

From the author of the internationally bestselling ‘A Man Called Ove’, a novel about a young girl whose grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters, sending her on a journey that brings to life the world of her grandmother’s fairy tales.

Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy, standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintball-guns-at-men-who-want-to-talk-about-Jesus-crazy. She is also Elsa’s best, and only, friend. At night Elsa takes refuge in her grandmother’s stories, in the Land of Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas where everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal.

When Elsa’s grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, Elsa’s greatest adventure begins. Her grandmother’s letters lead her to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and totally ordinary old crones, but also to the truth about fairytales and kingdoms and a grandmother like no other
