The Map and the Territory: Risk, Human Nature, and the Future of Forecasting by Alan Greenspan

Like all of us, though few so visibly, Alan Greenspan was forced by the financial crisis of 2008 to question some fundamental assumptions about risk management and economic forecasting. No one with any meaningful role in economic decision making in the world saw beforehand the storm for what it was. How had our models so utterly failed us?

To answer this question, Alan Greenspan embarked on a rigorous and far-reaching multiyear examination of how Homo economicus predicts the economic future, and how it can predict it better.

Joshua Gressel's Embracing Envy
Green Apple Books, Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 7pm
Please join Green Apple in welcoming local author, Joshua Gressel, as we celebrate the release of his first book, Embracing Envy, on January 11, 2015 at 7pm in the Granny Smith Room. Envy is a universal emotion, yet people are very reluctant to confess their envy of another. In Embracing Envy, Josh Gressel suggests it is our shame at admitting we feel inferior to another person that keeps envy so hidden. Through interviews with everyday people, reviews of mainstream psychological research, and lessons from wisdom literature, this book delves into how envy can be seen as meaningful and useful in our daily lives.

Spare Parts: Four Undocumented Teenagers, One Ugly Robot, and the Battle for the American Dream

Join us for an evening with Joshua Davis, the author of Spare Parts, the book that tells the incredible story of a team of undocumented Mexican American students who win a national robotics competition against all odds.

From Carl Hayden High, a scrappy, underfunded public school in West Phoenix, the newly formed robotics team, under the guidance of two unconventional teachers, took part in a national, NASA-sponsored underwater robotics competition. A seemingly classic underdog story, the Carl Hayden team beat out not only other better funded high schools with top-notch robotics programs, but also college teams, including a team of students from MIT.

Set against the backdrop of urban desert decay, a faltering school system, and our country’s cutthroat immigration policies, this becomes more than a book about triumph, it reveals the startling truth about what it means to be an American and where we will find the next generation of talent. The book is soon to be adapted into a major motion picture starring George Lopez, Marisa Tomei, and others.

Joshua Davis is an SF-based contributing editor for Wired magazine, a Stanford alum, and the cofounder of Epic magazine (www.epicmagazine.com). He is the author of The Underdog: How I Survived the World’s Most Outlandish Competitions, a memoir about his experiences as an arm wrestler, backward runner, and matador. In 2014, his work for Wired was nominated for a National Magazine Award for feature writing. He has also written for The New Yorker and other periodicals, and his writing is anthologized in the 2012 edition of Best American Science and Nature Writing, as well as in the 2006, 2007, and 2009 editions of Best Technology Writing.

Group f.64: Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, and the Community of Artists Who Revolutionized American Photography

Join us for an evening of photography and history with Mary Street Alinder, the author of Ansel Adams: A Biography, as she discusses perhaps the most famous movement in the history of photography, and shares her favorite photographs.

Revolutionary in its day, Group f.64 was one of the first modern art movements defined by women and men working as equals and contributed significantly to the recognition of photography as fine art. The group - first identified as such in a 1932 exhibition - was comprised of strongly individualistic artists brought together by a common philosophy and held together in a tangle of dynamic relationships. Their name, f.64, they took from a very small lens aperture used with their large-format cameras, a pinprick that allowed them to capture the greatest possible depth of field in their lustrous, sharply detailed prints.

The book contains over 100 different photographs (included a special 16 page insert), as well as chapters on individual artists such as Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, and Sonya Noskowiak, and more. Mary is an wonderful storyteller, expertly rooting the reader in the lives and thoughts of these famous photographers.

As a former assistant to Ansel Adams from 1979 until his death in 1984, Alinder personally knew most of the featured artists, and is perfectly situated to write this narrative. In addition to her writings, Alinder has curated exhibitions worldwide, including the 1987 Adams blockbuster at the de Young Museum and a 2002 Adams centennial exhibition.

The Boston Girl

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Red Tent and Day After Night, comes a character written with such powerful emotional resonance that you will hurt when she hurts and rejoice when she rejoices. That character is Addie Baum, born in 1900 to immigrant parents. The novel is framed as 85-year-old Addie telling her life story to her 22-year-old granddaughter, Ava, who has asked her, "How did you get to be the woman you are today?"

As a young Jewish woman growing up in Boston in the early twentieth century, Addie's intelligence and curiosity take her to a world that would've shocked her parents - a world of short skirts, movies, celebrity culture and new opportunities for women. Addie's controversial desires (for the times) complements and contrasts to Ava's own life desires, including her wish to become a rabbi.

The Boston Girl, written with the same historical detail as Diamant's previous books, is a moving portrait of one woman’s complicated life in twentieth century America, and a fascinating look at a generation of women finding their places in a changing world.

Anita Diamant is the bestselling author of the novels The Red Tent, Good Harbor, The Last Days of Dogtown, and Day After Night. An award-winning jouranlist whose work has appeared in The Boston Globe magazine and Parenting, she is the author of six nonfiction guides to contemporary Jewish life.

Alice LaPlante is the author of five books, including Turn of Mind, a New York Times, NPR, and American Independent Booksellers Association bestseller. She teaches creative writing at both Stanford and San Francisco State.
