Towne Center Books is happy to present author Bianca Marais as we celebrate her debut novel Hum If You Don’t Know the Words.
In this lyrical first novel, Marais transports readers to 1970s South Africa, when apartheid still ruled. Interwoven chapters follow the story of ten-year-old Robin, coming of age after her parents are found dead, and of Beauty, a Xhosa woman actively searching for her daughter, who goes missing after a Soweto uprising. With vivid imagery, Marais brings compelling characters to life to create a haunting novel about finding family in unexpected places and maintaining culture in the face of adversity.

Read It & Eat with Michelle Richmond & Gin Phillips
Towne Center Books is happy to present psychological thriller authors Michelle Richmond and Gin Phillips for a delicious lunch inspired by their newest books. The authors will be discussing their newest books, The Marriage Pact and Fierce Kingdom, respectively.
Michelle Richmond's The Marriage Pact takes the familiar marriage suspense plot and turns it upside down. Newlyweds Alice and Jake receive an enticing wedding gift: an invitation to join the exclusive and mysterious group known only as The Pact. The goal of The Pact seems simple: to keep marriages happy and intact. And most of its rules make sense. But when one of them breaks the rules, the young lovers discover that for adherents to The Pact, membership, like marriage, is for life. And The Pact will go to any lengths to enforce that rule.
[Gin Phillip's] electrifying novel explores the primal and unyielding bond between a mother, Joan, and her son, and the lengths she’ll go to protect him after the two become trapped in a zoo with a gunman on the loose. Joan’s intimate knowledge of her son and of the zoo itself—the hidden pathways and under-renovation exhibits, the best spots on the carousel and overstocked snack machines—is all that keeps them a step ahead of danger.
