Isabel Allende in ABQ for library fundraiser

Bks_j30Aug_Allende_CMYKInternationally renowned Chilean-American author Isabel Allende will make a visit to Albuquerque on Nov. 19 on her 13-stop U.S. book tour for her new romance novel of World War II, “The Japanese Lover.”

Bookworks will host the fundraiser for the Albuquerque Public Library Foundation.

Allende will be in conversation with veteran KUNM radio reporter Carol Boss, who hosts the “Women’s Focus” program.

The event will be at 7 p.m. at the KiMo Theatre, Fifth and Central in Downtown Albuquerque.

Tickets are $35 each and include a signed hardcover of “The Japanese Lover” and a $5 donation to the library foundation.

Tickets are on sale at bkwrks.com/allende-tickets or from Bookworks by calling 344-8139 or in person at the bookstore, 4022 Rio Grande NW.

Also at Bookworks, Adrienne Celt will sign her book debut novel “The Daughters” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 1. She infuses “The Daughters” with the spirit of the rusalka, a bewitching figure of Polish mythology that inspired Dvorak’s classic opera.

Tony Hoaglund will read from his fifth collection of poems, “Application for Release from the Dream,” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 3, at the bookstore.

And at Bookworks at 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 5, Margaret Randall will present her book “Haydee Santamaria.” Virtually unknown outside of Cuba, Santamaria was a trusted member of Fidel Castro’s inner circle and a friend of Che Guevara. She founded and ran the cultural and arts institution Casa de las Americas, which attracted cutting-edge artists.

AT TREASURE HOUSE: Eddie Tafoya reads from and signs his new novel, “Finding the Buddha,” from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 5, at Treasure House Books & Gifts, 2012 South Plaza NW in Old Town. It is a dark story of genius, friendship and stand-up comedy. A mysterious man with a Midas touch delights the world but still seeks release from his own personal nightmare.

IN PLACITAS: Anasazi Fields Winery, 26 Camino de los Pueblitos in Placitas, will be the setting for readings, presentations and book signings by New Mexico poet photographers Jim Fish and James Burbank at 2 today. Duende Press has just published “Dancing the Snow: A Guide to Skiing for an Old Man” by Fish and Burbank’s “The Oxbow Poems,” a collection of poems, essays and photographs about the Rio Grande.
