Soup and Suspense: Chris Holm

6:30pm

Join us for our popular Soup and Suspense mystery author program! Portland author Chris Holm will read from and talk about the latest book in his Michael Hendricks mystery series, Red Right Hand, out this September, and answer questions from the audience. The Michael Hendricks novels (two so far, The Killing Kind and Red Right Hand) tell the story of a man who makes his living hitting hitmen, only to wind up a target himself. Chris has written a mystery/fantasy crossover series, The Collector Trilogy, about Sam Thornton, a collector of souls. The novels recast the battle between heaven and hell as old-fashioned crime pulp. Chris also writes short stories, many of which have been nominated for or won awards. Sample delicious soups made by our dedicated volunteers. Door prizes! $8 suggested donation.

Movie Night: Midnight Special

7pm

Second in our Third Thursday movie series! In this cryptic sci-fi adventure from writer/director Jeff Nichols, Roy (Michael Shannon) rescues his son Alton (Jaeden Lieberher) from a religious cult in Texas, whose members worship the boy for his supernatural powers. Along with a state trooper (Joel Edgerton), the pair go on a cross-country journey as they are hunted by federal agents, who believe Alton might be a threat to national security. Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver, and Sam Shepard co-star. Are you interested in movies? We’d love to have movie “clubs”, who might like to show movies in all different genres. These could include recent releases, “chick flicks,” comedies, classics, foreign films, documentaries, kids’ movies, you name it. Different movies could be at different times to best accommodate the audiences—some in the afternoon, some at night. Donations towards our movie license are appreciated.

Food That Works: Local Author Malia Dell

7pm

Local cookbook author Malia Dell will talk about her self-published cookbook, Food That Works: Real Meals to Survive the 9 to 5.

This book is the result of years of traveling, working in the restaurant industry, and talking to people about their lives. Malia will share recipes and handy tips to incorporate into your routine, answer questions from the audience, and sign copies. Come be inspired!
