ALIYAH TSABO-DAWSON: The world’s most dangerous eight-year-old girl. Burned by a terrorist’s magic, gifted strange powers beyond measure. She’s furious that she has to hide her abilities from her friends, her teachers, even her mother – and her temper tantrums can kill.
PAUL TSABO: Bureaucromancer. Magical drug-dealer. Desperate father. He’s gone toe-to-toe with the government’s conscription squads of brain-burned Unimancers, and he’ll lie to anyone to keep Aliyah out of their hands – whether Aliyah likes it or not.
THE KING OF NEW YORK: The mysterious power player hell-bent on capturing the two of them. A man packing a private army of illegal ‘mancers.

J. Everett Prewitt: A Long Way Back
Thursday, October 29, 2015, 7:00PM
~ special event ~
Black soldiers thought to be killed in action mysteriously reappear in Cu Chi, Vietnam. A curious war correspondent uncovers an illegal army mission gone awry. **  I was drafted into the Army and graduated from Infantry Officer Candidate School in 1967. I missed the Glenville riots in 1968 because I was in Viet Nam. But Viet Nam had its own racial conflicts, and as a first lieutenant, I was made the commander of a supply battalion that experienced a racial clash in 1969. The division commander told the men who he considered the leaders in the brawl that “Since you want to fight so badly, I’m going to send you to the front line.” I don’t know if he ever did, but my novel, A Long Way Back, was based on the colonel’s declaration.

Richard Hawley: Greeves Passing
Wednesday, November 4, 2015, 7:00PM
~ special event ~
In this third novel in the classic saga which includes The Headmaster’s Papers and The Headmaster’s Wife, Richard Hawley brilliantly weaves the diary writings of headmaster John Greeve's cancer-stricken wife and estranged grown son into a tale which, when combined with the letters of John Greeve, paints a haunting picture of the spiraling sadness which comes from the dread of impending loss, the distant wanderings of grown children, and the tragedy of unexpressed love punctuated by death. Greeves Passing completes a poignant trilogy told entirely through the written expression of unfortunate events, unfulfilled dreams and the untold secrets of a well-educated American family. As John Irving writes, "Richard Hawley has the poise and vision to create an entire world."
