We have signed editions of My Absolute Darling available, signed by Gabriel Tallent at our event with him on September 7th, 2017!

My Absolute Darling is a masterpiece. With language as clean as it is expressive, it’s a perfect combination of propulsive storytelling and languid observation, a hero’s journey in the form of Turtle Alveston, a meticulous near-feral girl who is difficult to care for but easy to love, who is at home in the expansiveness of the Northern California coastline but lost to the violence in her own home, imprisoned by the hands of her beloved father. Once awakened by her first crush, Turtle must continue along the dangerous path towards self-awareness and ultimately escape, accompanied by the deliciously smart repartee of her new friends and the safety of self-reliance within the deep backwoods. Gorgeous in its depiction of nature, human and otherwise, unafraid to tell the truth, even in its complexity, this novel both breaks your heart and patches it with hope. One cannot help but read with a new way of seeing, an unforgettable treasure within this incredible book. - Melinda, Head Book Buyer

We have signed editions of Glass Houses available, signed by Louise Penny at our event with her on August 31st, 2017!

When a mysterious figure appears in Three Pines one cold November day, Armand Gamache and the rest of the villagers are at first curious. Then wary. Through rain and sleet, the figure stands unmoving, staring ahead.

From the moment its shadow falls over the village, Gamache, now Chief Superintendent of the Sûreté du Québec, suspects the creature has deep roots and a dark purpose. Yet he does nothing. What can he do? Only watch and wait. And hope his mounting fears are not realized.

But when the figure vanishes overnight and a body is discovered, it falls to Gamache to discover if a debt has been paid or levied.

by John Burley
First Edition, First Printing, Signed in Person

We have signed copies of The Quiet Child available, signed in-person by John Burley at our in-store event with him on August 9th, 2017.

It’s the summer of 1954 and the residents of Cottonwood, California are dying. Suspicion and gossip swirl around a strange six year old boy who never speaks, but seems to bring ruin to those around him, even his mother. When a stranger whips into town and Danny and his ten-year-old brother Sean go missing from the backseat of their father’s car, a search ensues in which everyone is a suspect—even their own parents—and the consequences of finding the two brothers may be worse than not finding them at all.


by Amy Ettinger
First Edition, First Printing, Signed in Person

We have signed copies of Sweet Spot: An Ice Cream Binge Across America available, signed in-person by Amy Ettinger at our in-store event with her on July 17th, 2017.

For Amy Ettinger, ice cream is not just a delicious snack but a circumstance and a time of year--frozen forever in memory. As the youngest child and only girl, ice cream embodied unstructured summers, freedom from the tyranny of her classmates, and a comforting escape from her chaotic, demanding family. Now as an adult and journalist, her love of ice cream has led to a fascinating journey to understand ice cream's evolution and enduring power, complete with insight into the surprising history behind America's early obsession with ice cream and her experience in an immersive ice-cream boot camp to learn from the masters. From a visit to the one place in the United States that makes real frozen custard in a mammoth machine known as the Iron Lung, to the vicious competition among small ice-cream makers and the turf wars among ice-cream trucks, to extreme flavors like foie gras and oyster, Ettinger encounters larger-than-life characters and uncovers what's really behind America's favorite frozen treats.


by Jaimal Yogis
First Edition, First Printing, Signed in Person

We have signed copies of All Our Waves Are Water: Stumbling Toward Enlightenment and the Perfect Ride available, signed in-person by Jaimal Yogis at our in-store event with him on July 14th, 2017.

All Our Waves Are Water follows Jaimal's trek from the Himalayas to Indonesia; to a Franciscan Friary in New York City to the dusty streets of Jerusalem; and finally to San Francisco's Ocean Beach. Along his journey, Jaimal prays and surfs; mourning a lost love and seeking something that keeps eluding him, until he ultimately finds what he's been looking for--that the perfect ride may well be the one we are on right now. The poet Rumi wrote, "we are not a drop in the ocean. We are the ocean in a drop." All Our Waves Are Water is Jaimal's "attempt to understand the ocean in a drop, to find that one moon shining in the water everywhere"—to find the Divine that unites us all.
