This month's Night Readers selection will be RUMP: the true story of Rumpelstiltskin by Liesl Shurtliff.   "In a magic kingdom where your name is your destiny, 12-year-old Rump is the butt of everyone's joke. But when he finds an old spinning wheel, his luck seems to change. Rump discovers he has a gift for spinning straw into gold. His best friend, Red Riding Hood, warns him that magic is dangerous, and she’s right. With each thread he spins, he weaves himself deeper into a curse.
To break the spell, Rump must go on a perilous quest, fighting off pixies, trolls, poison apples, and a wickedly foolish queen. The odds are against him, but with courage and friendship—and a cheeky sense of humor—he just might triumph in the end."

Author Kristen Harnisch drew upon her extensive research and experiences living in the San Francisco Bay Area and visiting the Loire Valley to create the story for The Vintner's Daughter, the first in a series about the changing world of vineyard life at the turn of the 20th century. Harnisch has a degree in economics from Villanova University and resides in Connecticut.

“One of the novel’s highlights is its rich history of the wine-making process through the eyes of a woman who is passionate and meticulous about each step.... In the beginning, [Sara] endures nonstop pain and loss, but these tragedies transform her from a smart, hardworking girl into an independent, resourceful woman. At its core, The Vintner’s Daughter is a story of perseverance and transcending one’s past.”—Booklist

“Poor Howard" Stith has performed 12-string barrelhouse blues on guitar for over forty years, in a style drawn from the tradition of Huddie Ledbetter (Leadbelly) and Blind Willy McTell. His guitar work and poignant vocals carry audiences into the world of rowdy barrelhouses, or the fields, at the end of a long day of weeding crops. Harmonica player, Mike "Bullfrog" Rogers, a forty year veteran whose styles range from folk to blues, has opened for John Hammond, Luther "Guitar" Johnson and Emmie Lou Harris.
