Very Hungry Catepillar Storytime

Arcadia Publishing presents

Page 1 Books welcomes
Authors Dawn-Marie Lopez and Raul Lopez Ponce on
Wednesday, March 25th at 6:30pm

to share their book: The Turquoise Trail from Arcadia Publishing

The Turquoise Trail National Scenic Byway is located in the heart of Central New Mexico. Linking Albuquerque to Santa Fe, the trail weaves its way north from Tijeras to the Lone Butte area, ending just south of the “City Different.” The trail is renowned for its mountainous landscapes, brilliantly painted skies, and diversity of cultures, all of which are reflected in local theater and dance traditions that are found along this 62-mile route. These arts have been important to Native American, Hispanic, and Anglo cultures. There is also a chapter that highlights the flourishing film industry and the popular entertainments of the Turquoise Trail.

Author Dawn-Marie Lopez is a former adjunct professor of theater and dance at the University of New Mexico, Valencia campus. She received her master’s degree in dance history/criticism from the Department of Theater and Dance at the University of New Mexico. Photographer Raul Lopez Ponce is a Southern Californian transplant who came to New Mexico in 2000 and fell in love with the natural beauty of the Southwest desert. He and his wife, Dawn-Marie, live on the Turquoise Trail.

This event is free and open to the public.

Men are the thing to fear

History sometimes suggests that the only thing worse than a man without a purpose is a man with one. Be that as it may, Danny Kaneen, failed novelist, womanizer, part-time gourmet chef and problem drinker, is unwittingly and hilariously failing his way toward a better understanding of the suffering world, right here in the benighted landscape of the American masses. He's stumbling toward a purpose. Together with his unscrupulous lawyer friend Dale Credenza, Danny is unwittingly on a collision course with human need. And with love. Look out. Be afraid. Such discoveries don't always have the effect you'd expect.

This event is free & open to the public.

Darynda and Jeffe return

Darynda Jones & Jeffe Kennedy return to Page 1 Books on May 30th at 3:30pm

We are elated to welcome these two fine local authors back to our store. Darynda will be talking about the highly anticipated Eighth Grave After Dark and Jeffe Kennedy will have the latest in her fantastic series The Talon of the Hawk.

First, let's tell you about the third book in Jeffe Kennedy's Twelve Kingdoms series:


Three daughters were born to High King Uorsin, in place of the son he wanted. The youngest, lovely and sweet. The middle, pretty and subtle, with an air of magic. And the eldest, the Heir. A girl grudgingly honed to leadership, not beauty, to bear the sword and honor of the king.

Ursula’s loyalty is as ingrained as her straight warrior’s spine. She protects the peace of the Twelve Kingdoms with sweat and blood, her sisters from threats far and near. And she protects her father to prove her worth. But she never imagined her loyalty would become an open question on palace grounds. That her father would receive her with a foreign witch at one side and a hireling captain at the other—that soldiers would look on her as a woman, not as a warrior. She also never expected to decide the destiny of her sisters, of her people, of the Twelve Kingdoms and the Thirteenth. Not with her father still on the throne and war in the air. But the choice is before her. And the Heir must lead…

For fans of Darynda Jones' Charley Davidson series, the latest book is sure to give the fans the fix their looking for:

With twelve hellhounds after her, pregnant Charley Davidson takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can’t get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. But after months of being cooped up there, Charley is ready to pop. Both metaphorically and literally since she is now roughly the size of a beached whale. Fortunately, a new case has captured her attention, one that involves a murder on the very grounds the team has taken shelter upon. A decades-old murder of the newly-vowed nun she keeps seeing in the shadows is almost enough to pull her out of her doldrums.

Charley’s been forbidden to step foot off the sacred grounds. While the angry hellhounds can’t traverse the consecrated soil, they can lurk just beyond its borders. They have the entire team on edge, especially Reyes. And if Charley didn’t know better, she would swear Reyes is getting sick. He grows hotter with every moment that passes, his heat scorching across her skin every time he’s near, but naturally he swears he’s fine.

While the team searches for clues on the Twelve, Charley just wants answers and is powerless to get them. But the mass of friends they’ve accrued helps. They convince her even more that everyone in her recent life has somehow been drawn to her, as though they were a part of a bigger picture all along. But the good feelings don’t last for long because Charley is about to get the surprise of her crazy, mixed-up, supernatural life…

This event is free and open to the public.

Anthology of Change

Join us for a group local authors
discussing The Change: Tales of Downfall and Rebirth
on Saturday, June 27th at 4pm


by S.M. Stirling, Harry Turtledove, Walter Jon Williams, John Birmingham, John Barnes, Jane Lindskold, and more...

“[A] vivid portrait of a world gone insane,”* S. M. Stirling’s New York Times bestselling Novels of the Change have depicted a vivid, utterly persuasive, and absorbingly unpredictable postapocalyptic wasteland in which all modern technology has been left in ashes, forcing humankind to rebuild an unknowable new world in the wake of unimaginable—and deliberate—chaos.

Now, in this startling new anthology, S. M. Stirling invites the most fertile minds in science fiction to join him in expanding his rich Emberverse canvas. Here are inventive new perspectives on the cultures, the survivors, and the battles arising across the years and across the globe following the Change.

In his all-new story “Hot Night at the Hopping Toad,” Stirling returns to his own continuing saga of the High Kingdom of Montival. In the accompanying stories are fortune seekers, voyagers, and dangers—from the ruins of Sydney to the Republic of Fargo and Northern Alberta to Venetian and Greek galleys clashing in the Mediterranean.

These new adventures revisit beloved people and places from Stirling’s fantastic universe, introduce us to new ones, and deliver endlessly fascinating challenges to conquer, all while unfolding in a “postapocalyptic landscape that illuminates both the best and the worst of which our species is capable,”** “a world you can see, feel, and touch.” ***
