The Milner Book Club in March will pursue two very different stories: first, Sena Jeter Naslund's Abundance, which takes a story we believe we know (Marie Antoinette's) and restages it in a new light, and second Chris Cleave's Little Bee, a book that actually begs you not to spoil the plot!

If you loved Little Bee, don’t miss Chris Cleave’s upcoming visit to talk about his new novel, Gold: What would you sacrifice for the people you love? Kate and Zoe met at nineteen when they both made the cut for the national training program in track cycling—a sport that demands intense focus, blinding exertion, and unwavering commitment. Now at thirty-two, the women are facing their last and biggest race: the 2012 Olympics. Each wants desperately to win Gold, and each has more than a medal to lose. Echoing the adrenaline-fueled rush of a race around the Velodrome track, Gold (Simon & Schuster, $27) is a triumph of superbly paced, heart-in-throat storytelling. With great humanity and glorious prose, Cleave examines the values that lie at the heart of our most intimate relationships, and the choices we make when lives are at stake and everything is on the line. Presented in collaboration with the Centre for Literature and Theatre at Miami Dade College.

We welcome British-born author Chris Cleave with his new novel, ”Gold,” an exciting story that focuses on the world of track cycling that does for sport racing what Jon Krakauer’s ”Into the Wild” did for high-risk adventure. It’s also about ambition, love and the power of the human spirit in what People magazine calls ”an adrenalin-feuled plot.” Cleave’s debut novel ”Incendiary” won the 2006 Somerset Maugham Award and was made into a feature film. His second novel, ”Little Bee,” became a bestseller in Europe and the U.S. with more than two million copies in print. The author now lives in London. We hope you’ll mark this date on your calendar and come meet this gifted English writer. We’ll have copies of his book for sale and signing, as always. (jasbro)… (mer)

They've loved, fought, betrayed, forgiven, consoled, gloried, and grown up together. Now on the eve of London 2012, their last Olympics, both women will be tested to their physical and emotional limits. They must confront each other and their own mortality to decide, when lives are at stake: "What would you sacrifice for the people you love, if it meant giving up the thing that was most important to you in the world?"
