One of our favorite authors, Brandon Sanderson, will read from and sign his latest, The Emperor's Soul.

This new original fantasy tale of magic, intrigue, and shifting loyalties is a taut, entertaining adventure. A heretic thief is the empire’s only hope in this fascinating tale that inhabits the same world as the Elantris. Shai is a Forger, a foreigner who can flawlessly copy and re-create any item by rewriting its history with skillful magic. Condemned to death after trying to steal the emperor’s scepter, she is given one opportunity to save herself. Though her skill as a Forger is considered an abomination by her captors, Shai will attempt to create a new soul for the emperor, who has been attacked by assassins. Probing deeply into his life, she discovers Emperor Ashravan’s truest nature—and the opportunity to exploit it. Her only possible ally is one who is truly loyal to the emperor, but councilor Gaotona must overcome his prejudices to understand that Shai’s forgery is as much artistry as it is deception. Brimming with magic and political intrigue, this deftly woven fantasy delves into the essence of a living spirit and those who seek to alter it.

Collectors Book Salon +info

During our Collectors Book Salon for the month of November, members of our rare book staff will present great gift ideas from our rare book department.

The Collectors Book Salons are social events for rare book collectors and those curious about collecting books. The salon is held on the last Friday of each month. The bookstore provides refreshments, and guests don semi-formal but eclectic and possibly playful or unusual attire. At 7:30 p.m. we interrupt conversations for a bibliophilic presentation. Past presentations have included talks on the revolutionary potential of readers, the cultural importance of antiquarian bookstores, English literature about Viet Nam and important early Mormon works from California. For the immediate holiday season, our staff will present examples of remarkable rare book gift ideas for the book lovers in your life. While most salon guests are self-avowed collectors, we welcome those who are curious about old books and may be considering starting a collection. This month we are encouraging anyone with a love of books to attend.
