Shoreless - An Evening with Enid Shomer Virtual Event
Friday October 30 | 7:00PM - 8:00PM
Enid Shomer joins Tombolo Books for an evening of poetry and conversation. Shomer will share her latest collection, Shoreless, and we promise the words inside are just as beautiful as the cover! Shomer will be in-conversation with Helen Pruitt Wallace, Florida Book Award winner and St. Petersburg's Poet Laureate.
Register for the event through our GOOGLE FORM and a Zoom link will be sent to you closer to the event date. Pre-order your copy of the book HERE.
Winner of the 2019 Lexi Rudnitsky Editor’s Choice Award, this sensuous collection bravely endeavors to share the wisdom age confers.
In Shoreless, her fifth collection of poetry, Enid Shomer continues to explore her passionate relationship with the Florida landscape, Judaism, the inextricable web of family, and the challenges of the body. While studded with the austere recognitions of growing older, these poems are punctuated by humor and play—formally elegant and inventive, beautifully textured and nuanced. Throughout the book, Shomer employs the language of science and Eros to uncover the exquisite truths of pain and pleasure.
In the author's own words: "The Florida landscape is essential to my very being. I don’t make a distinction between
where my body ends and where the landscape begins; they are contiguous!" -From an interview with Persea Books

Selena Murphy is commuting home from her job in the city when the train stalls out on the tracks. She strikes up a conversation with a beautiful stranger in the next seat, and their connection is fast and easy. The woman introduces herself as Martha and confesses that she's been stuck in an affair with her boss. Selena, in turn, confesses that she suspects her husband is sleeping with the nanny. When the train arrives at Selena's station, the two women part ways, presumably never to meet again. But days later, Selena's nanny disappears. Soon Selena finds her once-perfect life upended. As she is pulled into the mystery of the missing nanny, and as the fractures in her marriage grow deeper, Selena begins to wonder, who was Martha really? But she is hardly prepared for what she'll discover.

The horror genre is experiencing a boom right now and includes some of the highest quality fiction writing you’ll find anywhere. Together, we explore how horror can help us confront horrifying times, how it can be terrifically empowering, and the nature of fear on both a societal and a personal level. Join us!
The Social Justice Book Club reads Caste
Tuesday November 10 | 7:30PM - 8:30PM
Tombolo Books' social justice book club celebrates books that tackle deep-seated issues from race to capitalism to immigration to criminal justice. We aim for thought-provoking discussions and actionable steps in a welcoming space. We hope that our discussions will lead us to interrogate how these issues show up in the communities in which we live and how we can think about social change at local, national, and international levels.
For now, we're meeting virtually. There is no cost to join.
For our November meeting, we'll be discussing Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson, longlisted for the National Book Award.
“As we go about our daily lives, caste is the wordless usher in a darkened theater, flashlight cast down in the aisles, guiding us to our assigned seats for a performance. The hierarchy of caste is not about feelings or morality. It is about power—which groups have it and which do not.”
In this brilliant book, Isabel Wilkerson gives us a masterful portrait of an unseen phenomenon in America as she explores how America today and throughout its history has been shaped by a hidden caste system, a rigid hierarchy of human rankings.
Beyond race, class, or other factors, there is a powerful caste system that influences people’s lives and behavior and the nation’s fate. Linking the caste systems of America, India, and Nazi Germany, Wilkerson explores eight pillars that underlie caste systems across civilizations, including divine will, bloodlines, stigma, and more. Using riveting stories about people—including Martin Luther King, Jr., baseball’s Satchel Paige, a single father and his toddler son, Wilkerson herself, and many others—she shows the ways that the insidious undertow of caste is experienced every day. And she points forward to ways America can move beyond the artificial and destructive separations of human divisions, toward hope in our common humanity.
Copies are available at tombolobooks.com. Our facilitators are Matthew and Susie, who are both white folks and community-engaged residents of St. Pete passionate about justice, equity, and acting locally while thinking globally.

The Gabber Book Club reads Summer of Cicadas — with author Chelsea Catherine!
Wednesday November 11 | 7:00PM - 8:00PM
The Gabber Book Club, in partnership with Tombolo Books, aims to celebrate Florida authors and great books set in our state. We meet every second Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Historic Peninsula Inn (though, for now, we're meeting virtually). There is no cost to join.
November's selection is Summer of the Cicadas by St. Petersburg author Chelsea Catherine, who has agreed to join us for the discussion!
Summer of the Cicadas is about a West Virginian town where a brood of Magicicadas emerges for the first time in 17 years. The cicadas damage crops and trees, and swarm locals. Jessica, a former cop whose entire family was killed in a car crash two years earlier, is deputized during the crisis. Throughout the book, Jessica must deal with her feelings for her sister’s best friend, Natasha, who is a town council member. After Fish and Wildlife removes the swarm, Jessica must also confront the two-year anniversary of her family’s death, Natasha’s budding romance with a local editor, as well as a sudden but devastating loss that changes everything.
"Many authors are good at writing about the body. Few authors excel at writing the body of the world, the way it moves through everyone: cicadas owning us, making us restless, flirtatious, fearful even; shadows hiding our shadows; the defeating pines; the teasing sun. Chelsea Catherine creates a natural world as real as her characters. But it’s not about her deft ability at description or setting; it’s about her deep understanding of how everything moves as one—people, moods, moments, manifestations—and the modern Romance (with a capital R) of it all."—Erica Dawson, author of When Rap Spoke Straight to God
Every month, we aim to feature a facilitator from the Gulfport community. If you'd like facilitate a book club, reach out to the Gabber here.
If you want to download the audiobook or read the book virtually, you can support indie bookstores by doing so from libro.fm.
To RSVP and receive a Zoom link, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Superb…. a splendid postmodern rendition of the social realist novels of the 1930s by Henry Roth, John Steinbeck, and John Dos Passos, updated with strong female characters and executed with pristine prose. This could well be Walter’s best work yet."
─Publishers Weekly, starred review
Spokane, 1909. Orphans Gig and Rye Dolan don’t have a penny between them. The brothers work grueling odd jobs to feed themselves, and sleep wherever they can with other day laborers. Twentythree-year-old Gig is a passionate union man, fighting for fair pay and calling out the corrupt employers who exploit the working class. Eager to support his older brother, 16-year-old Rye joins the struggle, though he can’t quite muster Gig’s passion for the cause. But when Rye’s turn on the soap box catches the attention of well-known activist and suffragette Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, he is swept into the world of labor activism—and dirty businessmen. Caught between the two worlds, Rye must ultimately figure out for himself where he truly stands.

Spanning centuries, WE GATHER TOGETHER, is anchored amid the strife of the Civil War, and driven by the fascinating story of Sarah Josepha Hale, a widowed mother with no formal schooling who became one of the 19th century’s most influential tastemakers. Despite personal tragedy and ongoing political conflict, she
campaigned for decades to make real an annual day of thanks.
Populated by an enthralling supporting cast of characters including Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln—the man who finally granted Hale’s wish—Sojourner Truth, Walt Whitman, and others, WE GATHER TOGETHER is ultimately a story of tenacity and dedication. Alongside the story of Hale, Kiernan brings to the fore the stories of Indigenous peoples, immigrant communities, women’s rights activists, abolitionists, and more, offering readers an inspiring tale of how imperfect people in challenging times can create powerful legacies.
Denise Kiernan is an author, journalist and producer.

Her previous title, The Girls of Atomic City, is a New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and NPR bestseller and has been published in multiple languages.

The Tombolo Book Club reads The Cold Millions
Thursday November 26 | 6:30PM - 7:30PM
The Tombolo Book Club highlights the best of literary fiction and non-fiction. Moreover, it's a gathering space for our smart, funny, thoughtful and incisive literary community.
We meet every other month, on the fourth Thursday, at 6:30 p.m. For now, we're doing things virtually. There is no cost to join.
For our November meeting, we'll be reading The Cold Millions, the hotly anticipated novel by Jess Walter, author of a number of great, critically acclaimed books (Beautiful Ruins was his most recent). Here's a bit about The Cold Millions:
Walter delivers another “literary miracle,” according to NPR — a propulsive, richly entertaining novel about two brothers swept up in the turbulent class warfare of the early twentieth century.
The Dolans live by their wits, jumping freight trains and lining up for day work at crooked job agencies. While sixteen-year-old Rye yearns for a steady job and a home, his older brother, Gig, dreams of a better world, fighting alongside other union men for fair pay and decent treatment. Enter Ursula the Great, a vaudeville singer who performs with a live cougar and introduces the brothers to a far more dangerous creature: a mining magnate determined to keep his wealth and his hold on Ursula.
Dubious of Gig’s idealism, Rye finds himself drawn to a fearless nineteen-year-old activist and feminist named Elizabeth Gurley Flynn. But a storm is coming, threatening to overwhelm them all, and Rye will be forced to decide where he stands. Is it enough to win the occasional battle, even if you cannot win the war?
An intimate story of brotherhood, love, sacrifice, and betrayal set against the panoramic backdrop of an early twentieth-century America that eerily echoes our own time, The Cold Millions offers a kaleidoscopic portrait of a nation grappling with the chasm between rich and poor, between harsh realities and simple dreams. Featuring an unforgettable cast of cops and tramps, suffragists and socialists, madams and murderers, it is a tour de force from a “writer who has planted himself firmly in the first rank of American authors” (Boston Globe).
Our facilitator is local librarian Mallory Arents. To RSVP and receive a Zoom link, email email@example.com. This book is special — Readers who shop through us, please stay tuned for further announcements!

“It deserves prominent placement on LGBTQ history bookshelves. . . An indelible collection of wise voices resonating with experience, pride, resilience, and revolution.”
- Starred Kirkus Review
In The Stonewall Generation: LGBTQ Elders on Sex, Activism, and Aging, sexuality researcher Jane Fleishman shares the stories of fearless elders in the LGBTQ community who came of age around the time of the Stonewall Riots of 1969. In candid interviews, they lay bare their struggles, strengths, activism, and sexual liberation in the context of the political movements of the 1960s and 1970s and today.
A sex-positive and unapologetic depiction of LGBTQ culture and identity, The Stonewall Generation includes the voices of those frequently marginalized in mainstream tellings of LGBTQ history, lifting up the voices of people of color, transgender people, bisexual people, drag queens, and sex workers. We need to hear these voices, particularly at a time when our country is in the middle of a crisis that puts hard-won civil and human rights at risk, values we’ve fought for again and again in our nation’s history.
Jane Fleishman, PhD, MS, MEd, is a certified sexuality educator, researcher, and writer with more than forty years of experience. In her recent TEDx talk, “Is it OK for Grandma to have sex?” she articulates her mission to promote the sexual well-being of older adults. She has co-chaired national conferences for the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) and the Sexuality and Aging Consortium; launched a popular column on sex and aging for Live Well magazine; co-hosted the Our Better Half podcast with Dr. Ashley Mader and Dr. Rosara Torrisi; and hosted a monthly radio show, Sex Matters.

In 2012, she was inducted into the International Federation of Black Pride’s Black LGBT Hall of Fame.

When Lana Lewis's best—and most difficult—employee abruptly quits
and goes to work for the competition just days before the Sunshine
State Barista Championship, her café's chances of winning the contest are creamed. In front of a gossipy crowd in the small Florida town of Devil's Beach, Lana's normally calm demeanor heats to a boil when she runs into the arrogant java slinger. Of course, Fabrizio "Fab" Bellucci has a slick explanation for jumping ship. But when he's found dead the next morning under a palm tree in the alley behind Lana's café, she becomes the prime suspect.

She lives on the Gulf coast with her husband and two dogs.
