Coming up on Friday, 02/23: FROZEN BUTTEFLIES WITH SIMONA GROSSI 7:30PM . The Last Bookstore is pleased to present Simona Grossi and her new book, Frozen Butterflies. Come join the wine and cheese party, hear the author read passages from the book, answer questions from the audience, and sign copies of the book. . Susan Blanc teaches psychology at a university in Los Angeles. She lives alone and suffers from insomnia. One night she meets Nick, a blogger who seemed to be “consumed by something, someone, or himself.” Attracted to Nick’s silences and shadows, Susan embarks with him on a search for an artist whose journal Nick found one day on a bus. Nick and Susan’s stories melt with the artist’s story, in a cocktail of passion, sex, lies, and self-discovery. . Simona Grossi was born and raised in a small town in Italy, surrounded by books and music. She studied piano for several years, then became a lawyer, a teacher, a writer. She considers art as a form of love and love as a form of art.

TONIGHT, 02/21: WARNING CALL WITH DANNY BELL 7:30PM . The second book in the series The Black Pages is here, and The Last Bookstore is pleased to present USA Today best-selling author Danny Bell and his book, Warning Call. Join us as Danny will be on hand to provide Q&A about the series and sign copies of the book. The Black Pages follows Elana Black, a young woman with social anxiety and an avid reader who happens to have the power to make herself fictional. But when she discovers that fiction is not what we think it is, and the worlds she enters are every bit as real as our own, she decides that her new mission is to save all of the nameless characters who tend to die for the sake of advancing the plot. Of course, Elana isn’t the only one with her powers, and not everyone wants to see the stories change. . An unbeatable mythological horror has its sights set on Elana, and that’s not the worst of her problems. Gods want to use her, shadowy agents want to eliminate her, and a powerful sorcerer wants to kill her; all as she rushes to stop an event which portends the death of her best friend. It’s all catching up with her, and just in time for Christmas. Elana is going to have to figure out how all of it is connected but she’s in over her head, outnumbered, and running out of time. . And she always thought magic would make her life easier. . Elana Black. Saving the day even if she has to tear a hole in the universe to do it. . Warning Call is Vol. 2 of Danny Bell’s award-winning, best-selling series, The Black Pages and is the follow up to Vol. 1 of the series, Empty Threat. . Please note that our store has limited capacity (a mere 300!), so get here early. . Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase a copy of the author’s title from The Last Bookstore. Any outside books must be checked with security upon entering the store. This policy applies to all Last Bookstore events unless otherwise noted. Save your receipt; it will be checked when you enter the signing line.

His research has focused on the evolution of continents and the processes that energize them. He is the author of over seventy research articles and a textbook on geothermal energy. A Wilder Time is his first book for a general audience. He has lived in Norway, Australia and Denmark, and traveled throughout the world. His current home is in Santa Fe, New Mexico. .
