A Broken Badge Healed? The FBI, a Special Agent, and the Cancer within Both

Tuesday, April 22nd
6:00pm - 7:30pm


Former FBI Special Agent Frederic Donner traces the FBI’s history and provides a thoughtful commentary on its structure and operations, drawing parallels from his own battle with cancer. As a twenty-year veteran, Mr. Donner has worked primarily in undercover capacities, combating narcotics and terrorism in cities around the United States and the world. This experience has allowed him to closely observe the transformation of the bureau from a predominantly crime-fighting group to one that combats terrorism domestically and abroad.


Signed books will be available for purchase.

STEVE HIRST OneBookAZ Award Winner !

Tuesday, April 29th
10:30am - 12:00pm


In 1967, Steve Hirst began a lifelong relationship with the Havasupai people of Arizona’s Grand Canyon. During the eleven years Steve and his wife lived in Havasu Canyon, their daughter was born and the Havasupai asked the Hirsts to research and document the case for winning back ancestral land. Steve’s award-winning book, I Am the Grand Canyon, and the historic enlargement of the Havasupai Reservation were the outcome of that work. Steve will join us to talk about his new novel Lauren Greasewater’s War, the 2014 OneBookAZ Winner. The story traces a Havasupai woman’s quest from the streets of New York to the canyons of the Southwest finding her way back to her birthplace to reinvent herself as Lauren Greasewater. Caught between two worlds, she turns a cultural misunderstanding into an armed conflict.


Limited seating.
