We now have signed copies of Tides: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean, signed by Jonathan White at our in-store event with him on June 25th, 2018.

In Tides: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean, writer, sailor, and surfer Jonathan White takes readers across the globe to discover the science and spirit of ocean tides. In the Arctic, White shimmies under the ice with an Inuit elder to hunt for mussels in the dark cavities left behind at low tide; in China, he races the Silver Dragon, a twenty-five-foot tidal bore that crashes eighty miles up the Qiantang River; in France, he interviews the monks that live in the tide-wrapped monastery of Mont Saint-Michel; in Chile and Scotland, he investigates the growth of tidal power generation; and in Panama and Venice, he delves into how the threat of sea level rise is changing human culture--the very old and very new. Tides combines lyrical prose, colorful adventure travel, and provocative scientific inquiry into the elemental, mysterious paradox that keeps our planet's waters in constant motion. Photographs, scientific figures, line drawings, and sixteen color photos dramatically illustrate this engaging, expert tour of the tides.

Hardcover

We now have signed copies available of Florida, signed by Lauren Groff on the title page.

"Set in the steamy, seemingly dangerous landscape of Florida, Lauren Groff’s new stories play on the boundaries of humanity and wildness, the contradictions within human nature, and the conflicts faced by women in the assumed roles of motherhood and marriage. They are dark, exploratory, and as always with Lauren Groff, a thing of literary beauty." - Melinda, Bookshop Santa Cruz Head Book Buyer

by Bill Petrocelli
First Edition, First Printing, Signed in Person
Hardcover

We now have signed copies available of Through the Bookstore Window, signed by Bill Petrocelli at our in-store event with him on May 14th, 2018.

Gina Perini manages a bookstore in one of San Francisco's most lively neighborhoods. Although she thrives in her world of books, her harrowing escape from the war in the Balkans years earlier remains fresh in her mind. There are still those who are searching for her and who are intent on vengeance. Gina suddenly gets news that someone from her past is still alive--someone she had given up hope of finding. This sets in motion a chain of events that will stretch across the country and push her love and resourcefulness to the limit.

Through the Bookstore Window grapples with the grim effects of war and violence while exploring how love can transcend age, gender, background, and--perhaps--the readers' expectations.

by David Sedaris
First Edition, First Printing, Signed in Person
Hardcover

We now have signed copies of Calypso available, signed in-person by David Sedaris at our in-store event with him on June 27th, 2018.

"Every one of Sedaris’s books has made me laugh, but this is the first one to make me cry. Sedaris uses his keen sense of humor to turn mundane activities into sidesplitting stories, and he also applies it as a balm to ease the trials of getting older and the heavy burdens of loss. Most of the stories in this collection focus on his family, all just as funny as he is; because of this, Calypso is Sedaris’s most personal work yet." - Jade, Bookshop staff

by Aja Gabel
First Edition, First Printing, Signed in Person
Hardcover

We now have signed copies available of The Ensemble, signed in-person by Aja Gabel at our in-store event with her on July 11th, 2018.

"I found a refracted reflection of myself in the lives of the four 20-something musicians at the center of Aja Gabel’s debut novel, The Ensemble. The alienation, hedonism, love, loss, and beautiful music in their lives is depicted with such ferocity that Gabel’s romantic yet sardonic prose began to whirl around in my head during the day’s quiet moments. If you liked Celeste Ng’s Little Fires Everywhere or Nell Zink’s Nicotine, you will like The Ensemble." - Gabe, Bookshop staff
