Daniel is coming to the Twin Cities with his new book in tow: Strategy & Soul: a campaigner's tale of fighting billionaires, corrupt politicians, and Philly casinos. He'll be reading from the book and talking about strategy and group dynamics.

About the Book:
How do social movements grow from a handful of people to thousands? How do campaigns for justice escape the dull cycle of marching and create vibrant tactics that use our power? How do organizers keep going in the tough times? How do we win when all odds are against us?

Through the eyes of a local development fight, this book takes on these questions -- not in the abstract of an organizing textbook, but in the heat and fire of a lively campaign. This thrilling read is filled with lessons for even the most savvy campaigner.

Shadow on the Mountain recounts the adventures of a 14-year-old Norwegian boy named Espen during World War II. After Nazi Germany invades and occupies Norway, Espen and his friends are swept up in the Norwegian resistance movement. Espen gets his start by delivering illegal newspapers, then graduates to the role of courier and finally becomes a spy, dodging the Gestapo along the way. During five years under the Nazi regime, he gains - and loses - friends, falls in love, and makes one small mistake that threatens to catch up with him as he sets out to escape on skis over the mountains to Sweden.

Recommended for ages 10 and up.

Wallace: The Book on Feb 9

February 9, 2013 - 1:00pm

The author of the New York Times bestseller The Lost Dogs shares the heartwarming tale of one plucky, unwanted pit bull who achieved international celebrity.

Today, Wallace is a champion. But in the summer of 2005, he was living in a shelter, a refugee from a suspicious pit bull breeding operation. Then Andrew "Roo" Yori entered the picture. A scientist and shelter volunteer, Roo could tell immediately that Wallace was something special. While on his honeymoon, Roo learned that Wallace was about to be put down. Frantic - and even though they already had two dogs - Roo and his wife fought to keep Wallace alive until they could return home to adopt him.

Jim Gorant, Roo Yori AND WALLACE will all be at Boneshaker Books on Feb 9 at 1pm.

Movingly told by bestselling author Jim Gorant, Wallace will capture the hearts of animal lovers everywhere - and help rescue this popular breed's unfairly tarnished reputation.
