Amy Greene, “Long Man”
March 11 at 7 p.m.
From the critically acclaimed author of “Bloodroot” Amy Greene’s latest book, “Long Man,” a gripping novel of a family in turmoil, set against the backdrop of real-life historical event—the story of three days in the summer of 1936, as a government-built dam is about to flood an Appalachian town, and a little girl goes missing.
According to Publishers Weekly, the book is “unforgettable.’
“Like a classical myth, Greene’s second novel, set in the summer of 1936, transforms a period of cataclysmic history into a gorgeous, tragic tale filled with heroes and heroines ... Greene’s enormous talent animates the voices and landscape of East Tennessee so vividly, and creates such exquisite tension, that the reader is left devastated,” the review said.

Erika Robuck, “Fallen Beauty”
March 12 at 6:30 p.m.
The owners of FoxTale said they are thrilled to welcome back Erika Robuck with her new historical fiction novel, “Fallen Beauty.”
Robuck’s previous novels, “Hemingway’s Girl” and “Call Me Zelda” continue to be reader favorites at the Woodstock book store, and the owners said they were certain “Fallen Beauty” will become a fast favorite too.
Owner Karen Schwettmann said “Erika Robuck’s novels are among our favorites at FoxTale Book Shoppe and her latest, ‘Fallen Beauty’ does not disappoint. Her powerful storytelling drew me in and her portrayal of the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay, flawless. She captures the raw humanity and spirit of womankind, our fierce need to protect our families while striving to be true to ourselves and the awful grace that carries us through. Erika’s stories only get better and I can’t wait to put this into the hands of many readers. It will certainly grace the shelves of FoxTale’s Rockin’ Strong Women section.”
Stephan Pastis, “Timmy Failure: Now Look What You’ve Done”
March 13 at 4:30 p.m.
The clueless, comically self-confident kid detective returns in a sequel to the New York Times bestselling “Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made.”
He doesn’t like to pull rank. To reveal that he’s this guy: Timmy Failure, founder, president, and CEO of the greatest detective agency in town, probably the state, perhaps the nation. But he is. And he’s about to crack the biggest case of his generation, a school competition to find a stolen globe. It’s his ticket to taking his own empire global, or at least to Peru. And to bringing home the $500 prize, which is guaranteed to set him up for life.
Stephan Pastis is also the creator of the devoutly followed comic strip Pearls Before Swine, which appears in more than 600 newspapers. His compilation Larry in Wonderland debuted at No.1 on the New York Times bestseller list for paperback graphic novels. Pastis lives in Northern California.
The book is perfect for ages 8 and above.
Pastis will sign all books purchased at FoxTale Book Shoppe.
