  • A Virtual Book Discussion

    Tuesday, March 16 at 7:00 pm

    Join us for an evening with Mark Kurlanksy to celebrate the release of his new book, The Unreasonable Virtue of Fly Fishing.

    From the award-winning, bestselling author of Cod—the irresistible story of the science, history, art, and culture of the least efficient way to catch a fish.

    Fly fishing, historian Mark Kurlansky has found, is a battle of wits, fly fisher vs. fish—and the fly fisher does not always (or often) win. The targets—salmon, trout, and char—are highly intelligent, wily, strong, and athletic animals. The allure, Kurlansky finds, is that fly fishing makes catching a fish as difficult as possible. There is an art, too, in the crafting of flies, while the cast as well is a matter of grace and rhythm, making it as much an art as a sport.

    Kurlansky is known for his deep dives into the history of specific subjects, from cod to oysters to milk. But he spent his boyhood days on the shore of a shallow pond. Here, where tiny fish weaved under a rocky waterfall, he first tied string to a branch, dangled a worm into the water, and unleashed his passion for...

  • Love Like That, Stories

    Wednesday, March 17 at 7:00 pm

    Join to celebrate the release of Emma Duffy-Comparone's new collection of stories, Love Like That.  Emma will be in conversation with Jill McCorkle.

    Love Like That is a joyfully subversive and moving debut collection of stories about brilliant, broken women that are just the right amount wrong.

    Whether diving into complicated relationships or wrestling with family ties, the girls and women who populate this collection—misfits and misanthropes, bickering sisters, responsible daughters, and unhappy wives—don't always find themselves making the best decisions. 

    A woman struggles with a new kind of love triangle when she moves in with a divorced dad. A lonely teenage beach attendant finds uneasy comradeship with her boss. A high school English teacher gets pushed to her limits when a student plagiarizes. Often caught between desire and duty, guilt and resentment, these characters discover what it means to get lost in love, and do what it takes to find themselves again.
