This month’s debut author has us especially excited. Laura McBride grew up in Spokane and will be returning as an author whose debut novel, We Are Called to Rise, has earned starred reviews from Library Journal, is the #1 Indie Next Pick for June and is the American Booksellers Association “Indies Introduce” selection. We Are Called to Rise is a boomtown tale, in which the lives of disparate people collide in a stunning coincidence. When presented the opportunity to sink into despair, these characters rise. Through acts of remarkable charity and bravery, they rescue themselves. Emotionally powerful yet tender and intimate, this is a novel of redemption and unexpected love. Three lives are bound together by a split-second mistake, and a child’s fate hangs in the balance. What happens next will test-and restore--your faith in humanity.

Tin Roof Bistro in Manhattan Beach
Please join me on July 2 at the fabulous Tin Roof Bistro in Manhattan Beach for a delicious lunch with an amazing author. Laura McBride has written a stunning debut, We Are Called to Rise. With Las Vegas, as much a character as the background for this multi-person narrative, you will be drawn into four distinct lives: a broken-hearted mom who has just been told that her husband has been unfaithful and is leaving her, a social worker who lives and breathes the lives of the disenfranchised youth she tries to save, an Albanian 5th grader who is wise beyond his years, and a broken veteran who is not sure he wants to save himself. Fall in love with these characters and with this lovely author when you come to lunch!
