Reading, discussion and book signing by Lisa Borders with “The Fifty-First State,” tells the story after her father’s death, Hallie Corson returns from her New York photographer’s life to her South Jersey hometown to care for her long-estranged brother, Josh, during his final year of high school. As they learn their family’s history, and to live together and love one another, Josh and Hallie will invite disaster into their lives, and will manage to navigate dangerous currents, keeping further losses at bay. Ron MacLean presents “Headlong,” it’s a hot Boston summer, and Nick Young, a washed-up journalist back in town to care for his dying father, is feeling the heat. Using his old skills to solve a mystery before the police do: to connect the dots between a major labor strike, a violent Occupy-style movement, and a murder that may involve his best friend’s teen son. Headlong is a literary thriller about fathers, sons, eco-terrorism, death, immaturity, anarchism, friendship, and failure.
