    Auntie's hosts Katrina Carrasco, author of new historical fiction hit, "The Best Bad Things." In 1887, former Pinkerton Women’s Bureau agent Alma Rosales, the complex heroine of Carrasco’s stellar first novel, goes looking for stolen opium in Washington Territory. In order to catch the thief and recover the drugs, she disguises herself as a female ingénue and also as her cocky, pugnacious male alter ego, dockworker Jack Camp. Deeply relatable, palpable erotic energy, and powerful storytelling make this book a standout. 838-0206

    Growing up in Beverly Hills, the only child of a comedy writer and a fashion designer, Amy Dresner believed that everything was always funny and turned out right. And she needed to believe it. If you could snort it, smoke it, shoot it, or have sex with it, she did. It was never her dream to become an Olympic athlete of self-destruction, but that's what happened. MY FAIR JUNKIE is the shameless, hilarious, and unfortunately-to Amy-true account of it all. A safari through the wild world of addiction, it's a raucous, inspiring story of redemption, and ultimately an insightful. 838-0206

    Stephanie Land: Maid

    Wed., March 27, 7-8:30 p.m.
    Auntie's Bookstore 402 W. Main Ave., Spokane Spokane - Downtown


    As a single mother, Stephanie Land scrubbed the toilets of the wealthy and lived in a dank studio with her young daughter. Her journey is one of resilience and determination as she hops from home to home and survives on $9 an hour and public assistance. MAID is an illuminating dive into the secret underbelly of middle-class America, and what it’s really like to work in service jobs. In 2015, Stephanie wrote an impassioned viral essay in Vox, which detailed her life as a domestic worker, a field largely dominated by women working as housecleaners, nannies, and in elder care, 838-0206
