Davis, a nationally renowned surgeon and weight loss specialist, shifts the paradigm on protein with this new book. So much of what we eat gets loaded up with protein…but how healthy is it? Davis is one of Houston’s great doctors, and his book is cause for much Bayou City pride!
The author of EMPIRE OF THE SUMMER MOON returns to Brazos with his equally amazing REBEL YELL: THE VIOLENCE, THE PASSION AND REDEMPTION OF STONEWALL JACKSON. “This well-researched portrait of a well-studied figure of the Civil War defies the odds and measurably adds to the scholarship surrounding Jackson and the conflict that defined him.” – Dallas Morning News
Houston’s favorite neuroscientist, Eagleman will discuss his new book, which ties into an eagerly anticipated PBS series which he will host.
Brooks is a beloved American writer who won the Pulitzer Prize for MARCH, her reimagining of LITTLE WOMEN. Now, she turns her skills toward King David, telling a classic story in a new way. She will visit Houston for a special presentation and signing during her new book’s publication week.
What happens when a fearless yet naive woman scuttles her plans to be a midwestern housewife and builds a career in the humanities, negotiating the world of dating at the same time? Texas writer and professor Monroe returns to Houston with her new memoir for what’s sure to be another great reading.

THE NEW AND IMPROVED ROMIE FUTCH by Julia Elliott
Oh man, I’m so sick of this kind of novel—you know, your standard story about a down-on-his-luck Southern taxidermist who gives himself over to a scientific experiment, getting the entirety of the humanities uploaded into his brain, and then using that new knowledge to track a giant, evil boar, Ahab-like, through the woods. Haven’t we seen enough books like this? Okay, okay, I’m joking. But a year from now, when you’re fed up with the trend of taxidermy, scientific experiments, and evil hogs in contemporary fiction, remember that Julia Elliott’s stunning, original novel started it all.

WED, OCTOBER 21 AT 7PM
Best known for her Neapolitan Quartet, Elena Ferrante’s earlier novels are no less masterful. An exercise in minimalism, THE LOST DAUGHTER is the story of Leda, a divorced teacher on holiday on an Italian beach. A run-in with another family however brings up deep issues in Leda’s psyche. Eloquent, brave and utterly original, THE LOST DAUGHTER is the ideal anti-beach read.
