by Jesmyn Ward
First Edition, First Printing, Tip-In

We have signed copies available of the 2017 National Book Award for Fiction Winner Sing, Unburied, Sing, signed by Jesmyn Ward on a tip-in.

"In a small town along the Mississippi coast, one American family struggles with the ebbs and flows of a roller-coaster life grappling with addiction, connection, imprisonment, belonging and multi-generational strife. Jesmyn Ward, author of National Book Award winner Salvage the Bones, writes with gloriously, lyrical prose – a true mix of magical realism and honest observation of human nature which fully demonstrates that she is one of the greatest American authors writing today. " - Casey, Bookshop Santa Cruz Owner


by Ta-Nehisi Coates
First Edition, Tip-In

We have signed copies available of We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy, signed on a tip-in by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

"Ta-Nehisi Coates exploded into our world after Between the World and Me hit the shelves. He has a keen eye for the issues facing America and uses his blistering words to highlight what needs to be done. His newest work is no exception. He has collected some of his best articles and combined them with his own personal stories. What emerges is a powerful look at the Obama years. By looking back, Coates has given us hope for the future." - Ivy, Bookshop Staff


by Amy Tan
First Edition, Tip-In, Specially Bound

We have signed copies available of Where the Past Begins: A Writer's Memoir, signed on a specially-bound, illustrated tip-in by Amy Tan.

"The first thing you’ll notice is the writing—Amy Tan’s gorgeous prose. The second will be the almost casual references to her incredible family history and personal tragedy. You’ll be drawn in by the insight of one of our greatest living writers. Orbiting an emotional core, this collage of poetic thoughts and essays on art and language are intermingled with chapters of Tan’s heart-breaking real-life stories, creating a unique memoir that I can’t stop thinking about." - Jocelyn, Bookshop Staff


by Kelly and Zach Weinersmith
First Edition, First Printing, Tip-In

We have signed copies available of Soonish: Ten Emerging Technologies That'll Improve and/or Ruin Everything, signed on a tip-in by Kelly Weinersmith and Zach Weinersmith.

"This book is like the ultimate party companion: it’s funny and smart and it feeds you lines that will make you seem funny and smart. From the creator of the web comic Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal (and his super-cool wife) comes a book that will tell you everything you need to know to explain to your smarmy friend why certain technologies aren’t here (yet). Perfect for anyone who loves Bill Nye or just loves looking to the future." - Jax, Bookshop Staff


by Gabrielle Union
First Edition, Tip-In, Specially Bound

We have signed copies available of We're Going to Need More Wine, signed by Gabrielle Union on a specially-bound tip-in page.

"Badass and gripping, this memoir feels like the most honest conversation you’ve ever had with a best friend about the important topics of your lives. Captivating whether you know Union or not, I want to hand this to every feminist with a reading list. Union’s transparency, intensity, and grace merit both awe and a prodigious red wine toast." - a.c., Bookshop Staff


by Neil Patrick Harris
First Edition, First Printing, Illustrated Tip-In

We have signed copies available of The Magic Misfits, signed on a special tip-in by Neil Patrick Harris.

From award-winning actor, Neil Patrick Harris, comes the magical first book in a new series with plenty of tricks up its sleeve. 
When street magician Carter runs away, he never expects to find friends and magic in a sleepy New England town. But like any good trick, things change instantly as greedy B.B. Bosso and his crew of crooked carnies arrive to steal anything and everything they can get their sticky fingers on. After a fateful encounter with the local purveyor of illusion, Dante Vernon, Carter teams up with five other like-minded illusionists. Together, using both teamwork and magic, they'll set out to save the town of Mineral Wells from Bosso's villainous clutches. These six Magic Misfits will soon discover adventure, friendship, and their own self-worth in this delightful new series.

by Joe Tone
First Edition, First Printing, Signed Title Page

We have signed copies available of Bones: Brothers, Horses, Cartels, and the Borderland Dream, signed on the title page by Joe Tone.

Joe Tone's riveting, exquisitely layered crime narrative, set against the high-stakes world of horse racing, is an intimate story about family, loyalty, and the tragic costs of a failed drug war. Compelling and complex, Bones sheds light on the perilous lives of American ranchers, the morally dubious machinery of drug and border enforcement, and the way greed and fear mingle with race, class, and violence along America's vast Southwestern border.


by Alexander McCall Smith
First Edition, Tip-In

We have signed copies available of The House of Unexpected Sisters, the new No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency Novel, signed by Alexander McCall Smith.

Precious Ramotswe learns valuable lessons about first impressions and forgiveness in this latest installment of the beloved and best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series.

Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi are approached by their part-time colleague, Mr. Polopetsi, with a troubling story: a woman, accused of being rude to a valued customer, has been wrongly dismissed from her job at an office furniture store. Never one to let an act of injustice go unanswered, Mma Ramotswe begins to investigate, but soon discovers unexpected information that causes her to reluctantly change her views about the case.


by Lynn Freed
First Edition, First Printing, Signed Title Page

We have signed copies of The Romance of Elsewhere available, signed on the title page by Lynn Freed.

"If Joan Didion and Fran Lebowitz had a literary love child, she would be Lynn Freed--or, at least, the resulting book would be Lynn Freed's essay collection, The Romance of Elsewhere . . . The collection of 20 previously-published essays spans decades and continents, and is in equal turns funny, wise, and sardonic; charting both Freed's evolution as a traveler and her evolution as a writer. Travelers and readers seeking an unusually un-romanticized take on wandering the world will love it." --Bustle
