Events:

Booksigning: Meet local YA author Hannah R. Goodman author of Till it Stops Beating. Seventeen-year-old Maddie Hickman’s senior year begins with the good (the reemergence of The One That Got Away), the bad (a cancer diagnosis, not hers, but it might as well be) and the WTF (an anxiety attack that renders her writhing on the floor like an upside down crab). Adding to her spiraling anxiety is Senior Project, in the form of I’ve Decided To Write A Book about The Other One That Got Away (And Crushed My Heart). Compounding it all is applying to college and keeping up with her friends. The ever mounting stress eventually rips her tight grip on all that she holds dear. Her break down leads to an unexpected road trip where she is forced to listen to her wildly beating heart. It is only in the back of a convertible with pop music blasting, that she discovers she must risk everything in order to really live.

Book Signing & Discussion: Meet Cara Robertson author of The Trial of Lizzie Borden - FALL RIVER PUBLIC LIBRARY

Ink Fish Books is co-hosting this event at the Fall River Public Library

Is she a cold-blooded murderess or an unjustly persecuted lady? Did she or didn’t she?
The popular fascination with the Borden murders and its central enigmatic character has endured for more than one hundred years. Immortalized in rhyme, told and retold in every conceivable genre, the murders have secured a place in the American pantheon of mythic horror, but one typically wrenched from its historical moment. In contrast, Cara Robertson explores the stories Lizzie Borden’s culture wanted and expected to hear and how those stories influenced the debate inside and outside of the courtroom. Based on transcripts of the Borden legal proceedings, contemporary newspaper accounts, unpublished local accounts, and recently unearthed letters from Lizzie herself, The Trial of Lizzie Borden offers a window into America in the Gilded Age, showcasing its most deeply held convictions and its most troubling social anxieties.

Through her inventive, highly personal reading of To the Lighthouse, and her artful adaptation of its groundbreaking structure, Smyth guides us toward a new vision of Woolf’s most demanding and rewarding novel—and crafts an elegant reminder of literature’s ability to clarify and console.

Their raft—a mere four logs—separates them from the piranha-and-caiman-infested water until they finally realize that there is no way out but to swim. Vintage Original.

presentation: Local author Donna Harrington-Lueker author of Books for Idle Hours - BARRINGTON PUBLIC LIBRARY

Ink Fish Books is co-hosting this event at the Barrigton Public Library

Reading at the beach or in the backyard on the hammock is a great way to relax in the summer. But what if we told you that at one time in our history, there were fears about the danger of leisurely reading. Would you believe us?

Books for Idle Hours: Nineteenth-Century Publishing and the Rise of Summer Reading by Donna Harrington-Lueker details the publishing phenomenon of summer reading and the backlash against it. Countering fears about the dangers of leisurely reading---especially for young women---publishers framed summer reading not as a disreputable habit but as a respectable pastime and welcome respite. Books for Idle Hours sheds new light on an ongoing seasonal publishing tradition when more readers indulge in lighter fare and print culture and tourist culture come together.

Join us for an author reception with punch and cookies from 6 to 6:30 pm and a presentation at 6:30 pm. Books will be for sale by Inkfish Books and the author will be signing copies. 

Donna Harrington-Lueker is professor of English at Salve Regina University in Newport. Her work has appeared in Nineteenth Century StudiesJournalism History, and the Keats-Shelley Journal.

BOOK SIGNING : Katharine Smyth author of All The Lives We Ever Lived: Seeking Solace in Virginia Woolf - TIVERTON PUBLIC LIBRARY

INK FISH BOOKS IS CO-HOSTING THIS EVENT AT THE TIVERTON PUBLIC LIBRARY
Katharine Smyth was a student at Oxford when she first read Virginia Woolf’s modernist masterpiece To the Lighthouse in the comfort of an English sitting room, and in the companionable silence she shared with her father. After his death—a calamity that claimed her favorite person—she returned to that beloved novel as a way of wrestling with his memory and understanding her own grief.

Smyth’s story moves between the New England of her childhood and Woolf’s Cornish shores and Bloomsbury squares, exploring universal questions about family, loss, and homecoming. Through her inventive, highly personal reading of To the Lighthouse, and her artful adaptation of its groundbreaking structure, Smyth guides us toward a new vision of Woolf’s most demanding and rewarding novel—and crafts an elegant reminder of literature’s ability to clarify and console.

FOOD POP-UP: Breakfast & Books with KRAEV -Chef René Sanchez Tex-Mex breakfast

We are opening at 11:00 AM. Like to brunch on Sunday? Come join us for an amazing Brunch & Books at Ink Fish Books!

KRAEV was started because of the passion for making mornings better. Rene was working a monotonous job with a long commute, which resulted in early mornings and food to go. He would grind up his coffee beans, make himself a pour over, and grab whatever was quick (and somewhat nutritious), consuming it all in the car. Like that, the morning was gone and his day didn’t get much better. Something needed to change.

While organizing inventory for a hospital in Boston, Rene would dream about the delicious breakfast tacos he grew up eating in the small town of Poteet, Texas. His nana knew how to make them right - homemade and hand-rolled flour tortillas, holding any breakfast ingredient he was craving - eggs, sausage, chorizo, beans - you name it. And of course, breakfast wasn’t complete without a side of a southern classic - sweet tea. Rene is a firm believer in a good meal consisting of both sweet and savory flavors, so with every event or meal he dreams up, there are always items in both categories. The main dishes we make are breakfast tacos and sweets like homemade poptarts.

At this stage in our business, you can find us popping up at different events around Providence. And while we focus on breakfast, our food supersedes meal times - it is good for any time of day. We also do delivery and catering.

If we haven’t had the joy of meeting you yet, we can’t wait until we do! Until then -- don’t mess with breakfast!

DISCUSSION & BOOK SIGNING: Meet local author Donna Harrington-Lueker author of Books for Idle Hours

PART OF THE BRISTOL WARREN ART NIGHT

Books for Idle Hours focuses on the birth of the publishing phenomenon we today call the “beach read” in the last quarter of the nineteenth century.

Drawing on book reviews, readers’ diaries, and publishing records, it traces the ways in which nineteenth-century readers, authors, and publishing houses came to frame summer reading not as a disreputable indulgence, but as a respectable pastime and a welcome respite, especially for women readers. It also examines the development of a new genre—the American summer novel—which uses summer resorts as settings for the action and which was adopted by some of the most popular authors of the period, including William Dean Howells and Stephen Crane.

Book Signing & Discussion: Meet local author Mia Donohue author of Crossing the Bamboo Bridge: Memoirs of a Bad Luck Girl


Mai Donohue is a writer, beloved home cook, and re-tired educator of special needs students. After leaving Vietnam in 1970 she and her husband Brian settled in Barrington, Rhode Island. They have seven children and thirteen grandchildren. Mai holds a B.A. from the University of Rhode Island, an accomplishment that was the culmination of more than twelve years of study. Mai is known in her community for supporting various charitable causes with her delicious Vietnamese cooking. A PBS short documentary about Mai's life was nominated for a New England Emmy award in 2006.


This vivid, compulsively readable memoir of courage, grief and redemption illuminates the life of Mai, a young girl from Vietnam's rice fields, who risks everything to escape poverty, abuse and war. Her battle is not against soldiers but against her neighbors and a thousand years of tradition. Born during Ho Chi Minh's revolution against the French, she was just a baby when his followers in the village, out of spite, came to her home one night and murdered the men in the family, driving her mother mad with fear and rage. She was fourteen when her mother forced her to marry and have a child with a brutal man who beat and tortured her, finally leaving her for dead beside the road. Recovered, she ran away with her infant son, only to discover there was no place for them. To save her baby's life, she returned home in disgrace, only to face the Viet Cong. In desperation she escaped again, leaving her child in safety, she thought. On Saigon's deadly streets, with no identity papers, she became an outlaw, hiding from her ex-husband, grieving for her lost child. Homeless, penniless and pursued, only her dream of freedom kept her alive. Then one day she would meet a saintly woman, who gave her hope, and an Irish-American naval officer, who gave her love. Crossing the Bamboo Bridge is a tale of mothers and daughters, and of their children. It is a tale of war, and grief, and a young girl's dreams. It is a stunning epiphany of hope where there is none, of courage in the face of despair, of love, respect and freedom.

Authors

Author Schedule 2-4 PM

E. A. Mann author of One American Robin

Robin is a lonely, whip-smart twenty-five-year-old muddling her way through a rough summer. Her father’s losing his mind to dementia. He also might be falling in love, which is nice, but it has Robin wondering: is it adultery if you can’t remember you have a wife?

Robin answers these questions while juggling familial fissures, money problems, and a fruitless quest to capture her father’s rapidly deteriorating memories. Set in Providence, Rhode Island during the worst recession in generations, One American Robin is a funny and heartbreaking examination of love, dementia, and the life-changing power of home improvement.

Vikki Warner author of Tenemental

I'm a landlady. I'm responsible for a big, busted house and the people who live in it. Here's a book about what that's like.

In 2004, when I was in my mid-twenties, I bought an abused hundred-year-old three-family apartment building on the west side of Providence, Rhode Island—New England’s third-largest (and first-freakiest) city. I’ve lived on the third floor and rented out the two apartments below, ever since. Tenemental is an exploration of how sharing space with others has forced me to grow into myself.

Lucas Mann author of Captive Audience

An intimate portrait of a marriage intertwined with a meditation on reality TV and what it means to live an authentic life.  In Lucas Mann's trademark vein—fiercely intelligent, self-deprecating, brilliantly observed, idiosyncratic, personal, funny, and infuriating—Captive Audience is an appreciation of reality television wrapped inside a love letter to his wife, with whom he shares the guilty pleasure of watching "real" people bare their souls in search of celebrity.  Also the author o Lord of Fear and Class A

Book Signing: Katharine Smyth, local author of All The Lives We Ever Lived: Seeking Solace in Virginia Woolf

A wise, lyrical memoir about the power of literature to help us read our own lives—and see clearly the people we love most.
Katharine Smyth was a student at Oxford when she first read Virginia Woolf’s modernist masterpiece To the Lighthouse in the comfort of an English sitting room, and in the companionable silence she shared with her father. After his death—a calamity that claimed her favorite person—she returned to that beloved novel as a way of wrestling with his memory and understanding her own grief. 
Smyth’s story moves between the New England of her childhood and Woolf’s Cornish shores and Bloomsbury squares, exploring universal questions about family, loss, and homecoming. Through her inventive, highly personal reading of To the Lighthouse, and her artful adaptation of its groundbreaking structure, Smyth guides us toward a new vision of Woolf’s most demanding and rewarding novel—and crafts an elegant reminder of literature’s ability to clarify and console.
Braiding memoir, literary criticism, and biography, All the Lives We Ever Lived is a wholly original debut: a love letter from a daughter to her father, and from a reader to her most cherished author.
