by Daniel Levitin
Paperback, Signed in Person

We now have signed paperback copies of This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession, signed in-person by author Daniel J. Levitin at our in-store event with him on January 20th, 2020.

“I loved reading that listening to music coordinates more disparate parts of the brain than almost anything else - and playing music uses even more! Despite illuminating a lot of what goes on, this book doesn't 'spoil' enjoyment—it only deepens the beautiful mystery that is music.”—David Byrne, founder of Talking Heads and author of How Music Works


by Kristin J. Wilson
Paperback, Signed in Person

We have signed copies available of Others' Milk: The Potential of Exceptional Breastfeeding, signed in-person by author Kristin J. Wilson at our in-store event with her on January 24th, 2019.

Exceptional breastfeeders find creative ways to feed and care for their children—such as by inducing lactation, sharing milk, or exclusively pumping. They want to adhere to the societal ideal of giving them “the best” but sometimes have to face off with dogmatic authorities in order to do so. Kristin J. Wilson argues that while breastfeeding is never going to be the feasible choice for everyone, it should be accessible to anyone.  


by Michelle Obama
Deluxe Collector's Edition, Signed

We have limited copies available of the deluxe, collector's edition of Becoming, signed by author Michelle Obama in a beautiful package that includes the special signed cloth-bound edition of her bestselling memoir, additional content of Michelle Obama's "Notes to Self", two beautiful prints of her inspirational words, and a fine-art photo portrait of Michelle Obama by renowned photography Miller Mobley.

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words.

by Beth Pettingill Riley
First Edition, First Printing, Signed In-Person

We now have signed first edition, first printing copies of A Moving Inquiry, signed in-person by author Beth Pettengill Riley.

Is it possible to remain connected to the wholeness of embodied experience, as modern life becomes increasingly disembodied, fragmented and fast-moving? Many people hunger for a meaningful movement practice, but struggle to find it. The movement practice offered in this book is an inquiry into the nature of human flourishing. Our lives are made of movements, and bringing an organizing consciousness to our moment-by-moment experience opens a flow of intelligence from the natural world through our senses and tissues. Instead of living “on the surface,” we can know ourselves as part of nature’s body, connected to nature’s life force. This book is a guide to establishing a personal movement practice that can serve as the foundation of daily life, with the body itself as teacher.


by Christian Robinson
First Edition, Second Printing, Signed In-Person

We now have signed first edition, second printing copies of Another, signed in-person by author and illustrator Christian Robinson at our in-store event with him on December 6, 2019.

"I’m a huge fan of Christian Robinson’s colorful and playful illustrations which, in previous books, have illuminated the words of notable authors like Matt de la Peña. Another is a book all his own. In this wordless romp, a little girl and her cat venture through a portal into another world where left is right, up is down, and doppelgangers abound. This topsy-turvy book is so much fun and is sure to inspire the curiosity, creativity, and imagination of young readers everywhere." - S.B., Bookshop Santa Cruz staff


by Christian Robinson
First Edition, Signed in Person

We now have signed copies available of Last Stop on Market Street, signed in-person by illustrator Christian Robinson at our in-store event with him on December 6th, 2019.

"San Francisco, in all its bustling eccentricity, comes alive in this moving homage by Matt de la Peña. CJ is taking the bus down to Market Street with his Nana and he’s dragging his heels. Why don’t they have a car? Why do they have to go at all? But with a few knowing words from Nana, CJ remembers to look around at the surprising city wonders: a man with a guitar who strums them a tune, a woman with a magical jar of butterflies on her lap, and their friends from all walks of life who greet them along the way. Robinson brings a joyous mix of bright acrylic and collage art to an important and unique story." - Tera, Bookshop Santa Cruz Children's Dept. Staff


by Jacqueline Woodson
First Edition, First Printing, Signed Title Page

We now have signed first edition, first printing copies available of Red at the Bone, signed by author Jacqueline Woodson on the title page.

An unexpected teenage pregnancy pulls together two families from different social classes, and exposes the private hopes, disappointments, and longings that can bind or divide us from each other, from the New York Times-bestselling and National Book Award-winning author of Another Brooklyn and Brown Girl Dreaming.


by Casey Cep
First Edition, First Printing, Signed Title Page

We now have signed first edition, first printing copies of Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee, signed on the title page by author Casey Cep.

"When Harper Lee learned of the vigilante murder of Reverend Willie Maxwell, the many deaths that preceded his, and the lawyer who both defended him and his assailant, she knew she’d found the story she wanted to write, a true crime narrative with an underlying complexity of race, place, and politics. Almost 50 years later, Casey Cep has realized the same in her first book, a remarkable work of nonfiction that distills extensive research into a broad, insightful exploration of not only the reverend and his lawyer but of Harper Lee, her drive, her demons, and the book she never finished." - Melinda, Bookshop Santa Cruz Head Book Buyer
