THURSDAY July 20th at 7pm: SONGS OF LOVE & DEATH - Demon Dancer

"Songs of Love & Death"
DEMON DANCER
In tonight’s book we find stories from the heart and about the heart, tales of endangered love played out against every kind of setting, from ghost-haunted fantasy landscapes to mile-long spaceships in transit between the stars, stories where a lover’s heart is put in danger, and love, life, and happiness are at risk with great odds to be overcome to achieve them. Star-crossed lovers who are really star-crossed, with grave obstacles to be overcome before they succeed in finding love (if they do):

WEDNESDAY, July 19th at 7pm: THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON Concludes

“And the more they asked, the more they wondered. And the more they wondered, the more they hoped. And the more they hoped, the more the clouds of sorrow lifted, drifted, and burned away in the heat of a brightening sky.” 

Characters collide, volcanoes erupt, transformations, confrontation, revelations ... all tonight

TUESDAY, July 18th at 7pm: MORE WORDS from Stephen Vincent Benét

Still image from the 1954 Movie Musical "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers"
which was based on Benét' short story "The Sobbin' Women."

Stephen Vincent Benét adapted the Roman myth of the abduction of the Sabine Women into the story "The Sobbin' Women". 

Set in 1850 in the wilds of Oregon, the Pontipee brothers are tired of bad cooking and broken chairs. They draw straws and send one of their number traveling from their mountain into the nearest town to "get a woman to take care of this place."  They agree that it can't just be a "hired girl" -that wouldn't be proper.  There's nothing for it, one of them has to do right by the family and get married.

It sounds like such a reasonable plan to a bunch of backwoodsman brothers.  Of course, it turns out to not be quite as simple as all that.

Benét's story was adapted into the 1954 movie musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, starring Howard Keel and Jane Powell, Directed by Stanley Donan and with iconic choreography by Michael Kidd. Enjoy this clip in which the oldest brother ("Adam" in the screenplay) "interprets" Plutarch  as an object lesson for his brothers.



Join Corwyn, Kayden, and Caledonia in the Seanchai "SKai" Box for Benét's story, and more selected poems, live in voice.

In January 1903, at Baker Street, James M. Dodd sees Holmes about a missing friend, Godfrey Emsworth. Dodd and Emsworth served together in the Imperial Yeomanry in South Africa during the Second Boer War, which has only just ended. Emsworth was wounded during this war. Dodd has not seen him since the report of his injury, and "not a word for six months and more". Since Emsworth has always been such a good friend, Dodd believes something is amiss.

TUESDAY, July 11th at 7PM: IN STEPHEN'S WORDS


Stephen Vincent Benét was an American poet, short story writer, and novelist. Benét is best known for his book-length narrative poem of the American Civil War, "John Brown's Body" (1928), for which he won a Pulitzer Prize in 1929, and for two short stories, "The Devil and Daniel Webster" (1936) and "By the Waters of Babylon" (1937). 

His story "The Sobbin' Women" was adapted into a motion picture in 1954, featuring music by Johnny Mercer and retitled "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers."  The screenplay and score have since been adapted for the stage. In 2009, The Library of America selected Benét’s story "The King of the Cats" (1929) for inclusion in its two-century retrospective of American Fantastic Tales, edited by Peter Straub.

Corwyn Allen presents "Jacob and the Indians" plus selected poems, time permitting, live in voice.

SUNDAY, July 9th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME at Baker Street Returns

Have you missed him?  Conan-Doyle's "Great Detective."  While we have been involving ourselves with moves, Fantasy Faires, and Other Detectives, Sherlock Holmes has been taking a break.  Now he's back with THE CASEBOOK OF SHERLOCK HOLMES, in a brand new series of adventures we have not presented in over three years.

THIS WEEK: The Adventure of the Illustrious Client.


Sir James Damery comes to see Holmes and Watson about his illustrious client's problem (the client's identity is never revealed to the reader, although Watson finds out at the end of the story). General de Merville's young daughter Violet has fallen in love with the roguish and sadistic Austrian Baron Adelbert Gruner, whom Damery and Holmes are convinced is a shameless philanderer and a murderer. The victim was his last wife, of whose murder he was acquitted owing to a legal technicality and a witness's untimely death.

How will Holmes dissuade a woman in love, where others (including her father) have failed.

Join us in the Fireside Room as we launch a new series of Holmesian adventures, live in voice.

WEDNESDAY, June 28th at 7pm: THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON Continues

Witches, Swamp Monsters, and Dragons!  Oh My! Caledonia Skytower continues Kelly Barnhill’s
2017 Newbery Medal winner.

Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian.

Xan rescues the abandoned children and deliver them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey.

One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this enmagicked girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own.

To keep young Luna safe from her own unwieldy power, Xan locks her magic deep inside her. When Luna approaches her thirteenth birthday, her magic begins to emerge on schedule–but Xan is far away. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her–even if it means the end of the loving, safe world she’s always known..

What does "special" look like anyway?

Curling hair, high cheekbones, lyrical voice, alabaster skin, grace, beauty.  These are the blessings of a storybook princess.  But "Princess Amy" is not your typical storybook princess.  What is unique about her, is that she is completely ordinary and unremarkable.  Along with Wit, Charm, Health, and Courage, Princess Amy of Phantasmorania receives a special fairy christening gift: Ordinariness. Why, she might just be you or me!

THURSDAY June 22nd at 7pm: THE SOUTHERN THING

"a rugged, brutal landscape of exquisite beauty"
THE SOUTHERN THING

Stories that demonstrate the tensions between the traditional and the modern, the old and new south, tenderness and violence, man and nature; evoking the heart and soul of this land and its people — men and women inexorably tethered to the geography that defines and shapes them. The focus is regional, but the themes are universal, striking an emotional chord that resonates deep within each of our lives - suspense and myth, hope and heartbreak.

WEDNESDAY, June 21st at 7pm: THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON Continues

"Many books we read when we’re young want to teach us lessons about life. True, the things we learn in them can stay with us forever. But lessons can be so dull. Luckily, Kelly Barnhill’s wonderful fourth novel, “The Girl Who Drank the Moon,” educates about oppression, blind allegiance and challenging the status quo while immersing the reader in an exhilarating story full of magical creatures and derring-do."

TUESDAY, June 20th at 7pm: THE ORDINARY PRINCESS Begins!

Faerie Maven-Pralou begins MM Kaye’s 2002 novel.

In true fairytale style, the seventh princess is blessed with gifts by a host of fairies, but as her father fears, it goes wrong and one slightly bitter fairy ‘blesses’ her with ordinariness.

So no golden curls, stunning beauty and sublime grace for Princess Amethyst Alexandra Augusta Araminta Adelaide Aurelia Anne. Her dark hair and freckles make Amy (no ordinary princess can be called anything else) stop every suitor from pursuing her. She decides to run away and make her own life, away from boring princes and a confined life.

A life in the forest is bliss, but eventually Amy realizes she will need some money, and must find work. So it is that she becomes the fourteenth assistant kitchen maid at a neighboring palace. And there  – much to everyone’s surprise – she meets a prince just as ordinary (and special) as she is!
