Irvin D. Yalom in conversation with Barry Hughes

Wednesday, March 4, 7:30 p.m.

Creatures of a Day: And Other Tales of Psychotherapy

The newest from eminent psychotherapist and leading author of late-20th century writing on psychotherapy, Irvin D. Yalom, is an absorbing collection of ten tales of psychotherapy that uncover the mysteries, frustrations, pathos, and humor at the heart not only of the therapeutic encounter but of life itself. Yalom grapples with two of the biggest challenges everyone faces: how to live a life worth living, and how to deal with its inevitable end.

Never maudlin or cheap, Yalom's writing is funny, earthy, and often shocking, an act of radical honesty about the facts and ultimate destiny of human life that most of us spend too much time trying to avoid recognizing.

Irvin D. Yalom is an emeritus professor of psychiatry at Stanford and a psychiatrist in private practice in San Francisco. He is the author of many books, including Love's Executioner, Theory and Practice in Group Psychotherapy, and When Nietzsche Wept.

Barry Hughes is a clinical psychologist who has practiced as a psychotherapist and clinical administrator for the last thirty years. Most of his career was spent in the Southwest, where he was in private practice, then directed the clinical services for Southwest Counseling Center, a community mental health center. He is currently the Clinical Administrative Director for the inpatient Psychiatric Health Facility at Kaiser Permanente in Santa Clara, California. He serves on the Board of Directors for JW House, a healthcare hospitality house also located in Santa Clara.

In the Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick

In 1819, the Essex left Nantucket for the South Pacific. In the middle of the South Pacific the ship was rammed and sunk by an angry sperm whale. The crew drifted for more than 90 days in three tiny whaleboats, succumbing to weather, hunger, disease, and ultimately turning to drastic measures in the fight for survival.

Nathaniel Philbrick uses little-known documents-including a long-lost account written by the ship's cabin boy-and penetrating details about whaling and the Nantucket community to reveal the chilling events surrounding this epic maritime disaster. An intense and mesmerizing read.

Book Swap featuring ELIZABETH ROSNER
Kepler's Books, Saturday, March 7 at 6:30pm
EAT, DRINK, TALK AND SWAP BOOKS: An Evening at Kepler's

Saturday, March 7, 6:30 - 9:00 p.m.

If you're interested in spending an evening with fun, smart, creative and lit-minded souls, Kepler's has put together an event for you: a Book Swap. If not tempted by the good company and great atmosphere, be tempted by delicious food and free-flowing wine. Bring a book you love, one you can talk about all night and are willing to part with at the end of the evening.

You'll go home with a book highly recommended by another BookSwapper, a free Advanced Reader's Edition of a book from Kepler's, and some great suggestions to add to your never-ending 'Must Read' list. There are also rumors of surprise giveaways.

AND THAT'S NOT ALL! Because we're featuring ELIZABETH ROSNER with her novel Electric City. Yes, Elizabeth will be joining us to discuss her book about which Booklist said "Rosner's richly imagined historical novel richly conveys an abiding sense of time and place. A deeply evocative paean to the wonders of science, the perils of technology, and the sacrifices of people in thrall to their power."

Come at 6:30 to mingle over drinks and munchies. We'll start the book discussions at 7pm and we'll wrap up the Book Swap festivities around 9pm.

Tickets are $25 and are now on sale in the store or from Brown Paper Tickets. "Think cocktail party, with a bookish twist." - Litquake

Sangre en el ojo by Lina Meruane

At a party, Lucina leans down to pick up her insulin syringe when she notices a thin thread of blood invading her eye. These hemorrhages will leave her blind, permanently or temporarily it is not known. She will be faced with darkness, helplesness and a return to Chile from New York and to her parents house, to everything she had fled, and this will lead her down the path of cruelty, and finally hatred.

PREMIER EVENT: DAVE BARRY

Premier Event: Dave Barry

Tuesday, March 10, 7:30 p.m.

Live Right and Find Happiness (Although Beer is Much Faster): Life Lessons from Dave Barry Sorry, this event is sold out.

Ready to laugh so loud you'll fall out of your chair?

During the course of living (mumble, mumble) years, Dave Barry has learned much of wisdom,* (*actual wisdom not guaranteed) and he is eager to pass it on—to the next generation, the generation after that, and, you get the idea...

In brilliant, brand-new, never-before-published pieces, Dave passes on home truths to his new grandson and to his daughter Sophie, who will be getting her learner’s permit in 2015. (“So you’re about to start driving! How exciting! I’m going to kill myself”). He explores the hometown of his youth, where the grown-ups were supposed to be uptight 50s' conformists but seemed to have a lot of un–Mad Men–like fun—unlike Dave’s own Baby Boomer generation, which was supposed to be wild and crazy, but somehow turned into neurotic hover-parents.

He dives into everything from the inanity of cable news and the benefits of Google Glass (“You will look like a douchebag”) to the loneliness of high school nerds (“You will never hear a high school girl say about a boy, in a dreamy voice, ‘He’s so sarcastic!’”), from the perils of home repair to firsthand accounts of the soccer craziness of Brazil and the just plain crazy craziness of Vladimir Putin’s Russia (“He stares at the camera with the expression of a man who relaxes by strangling small furry animals”), and a lot more besides.

Dave Barry has been a professional humorist ever since he discovered that professional humor was a lot easier than working. He has won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary (one of Barry's columns was largely responsible for the movement to observe International Talk Like a Pirate Day every year on September 19). In addition, he has written more than 30 books, including the novels Big Trouble, Lunatics, Tricky Business and, most recently, Insane City. He has also written a number of books with titles like I'll Mature When I'm Dead, which are technically classified as nonfiction, although they contain numerous lies.

Complimentary valet parking.

The Improbability Principle: Why Coincidences, Miracles, and Rare Events Happen Every Day by David J. Hand

In The Improbability Principle, the renowned statistician David J. Hand argues that extraordinarily rare events are anything but. In fact, they’re commonplace. Not only that, we should all expect to experience a miracle roughly once every month.

But Hand is no believer in superstitions, prophecies, or the paranormal. His definition of “miracle” is thoroughly rational. All we need, Hand argues, is a firm grounding in a powerful set of laws: the laws of inevitability, of truly large numbers, of selection, of the probability lever, and of near enough.

“In my experience, it is very rare to find a book that is both erudite and entertaining. Yet The Improbability Principle is such a book. Surely this cannot be due to chance alone!” —Hal R. Varian, chief economist at Google and professor emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley
