7:30 PM Book Signing: How to Stop Time Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries. Tom has lived history—performing with Shakespeare, exploring the high seas with Captain Cook, and sharing cocktails with Fitzgerald. Now, he wants just an ordinary life.

So Tom moves back to London, his old home, to become a high school history teacher—the perfect job for someone who has witnessed the city's history first hand. Better yet, a captivating French teacher at his school seems fascinated by him. But the Albatross Society, the secretive group which protects people like Tom, has one rule: Never fall in love. As painful memories of his past and the erratic behavior of the Society's watchful leader threaten to derail his new life and romance, the one thing he can't have just happens to be the one thing that might save him. Tom will have to decide once and for all whether to remain stuck in the past, or finally begin living in the present.

8:00 PM Music: Voz a Voz Sevilla is the home of Bachata and we're excited to bring you another great artist! Don't miss the smooth and sexy sounds of Voz a Voz.

Voz a Voz was discovered performing in the Hotel Bavaro in Santo Domingo by a record producer from the Urban Box Office label. Inspired by the rhythms and melodies of their native island, the young men created a new "R&B" -- Rhythm and Bachata. They craft soulful, urban influenced three-part vocal arrangements in a style that is as much Dominican born as U.S. inspired.

Admission/Cost: $10 - $12
