Monika Trobits - Antebellum and Civil War San Francisco
Green Apple Books, Monday, November 24 at 7pm
Please join Green Apple Books on Clement in our Granny Smith Room on November 24 at 7:00 p.m. as we host Monika Trobits, who will be reading from her latest book Antebellum and Civil War San Francisco: A Western Theater for Northern & Southern Politics! Spurred by the promise of gold, hungry adventurers flocked to San Francisco in search of opportunity on the eve of the Civil War. The city flourished and became a magnet for theater. Some of the first buildings constructed in San Francisco were theater houses, and John Wilkes Booth's famous acting family often graced the city's stages. In just two years, San Francisco's population skyrocketed from eight hundred to thirty thousand, making it an "instant city" where tensions between transplanted Northerners and Southerners built as war threatened the nation. Though seemingly isolated, San Franciscans took their part in the conflict. Some extended the Underground Railroad to their city, while others joined the Confederate-aiding Knights of the Golden Circle. Including a directory of local historic sites and streets, author Monika Trobits chronicles the dramatic and volatile antebellum and Civil War history of the City by the Bay.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple

Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.

Then Bernadette disappears. To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence--creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world.

Blackmail, My Love: A Murder Mystery
Green Apple Books, Tuesday, November 25 at 7pm
Please join Green Apple Books on November 25th at 7:00 p.m. as we welcome Katie Gilmartin who will be from her new book Blackmail, My Love: A Murder Mystery.

Facebook RSVP requested but not required

First-time novelist Katie Gilmartin breaks into noir fiction with her brilliantly conceived, illustrated thriller, Blackmail, My Love: A Murder Mystery. With a doctoral background in Queer Studies, Gilmartin reveals secret histories of San Francisco’s mid-century queer underground as we follow her into a world of corruption, coercion, murder, and mystery.

Set in such legendary locations as the Black Cat Cafe, the Fillmore, the Beat movement's North Beach, and the sexually complex Tenderloin, the novel’s action is fueled by a 1951 California Supreme Court ruling that homosexuals have a right to congregate: the decision incited tavern owner resistance to customary payoffs in exchange for police protection, but provoked new tactics to justify raids and extortion. Blackmail, My Love distills fiction and queer history into a singular, visually stunning experience.

"Katie dives so deep … that you’ll feel like you’ve time-traveled.”

—Carol Queen, author of The Leather Daddy and the Femme

Katie Gilmartin received a Ph.D. in cultural studies from Yale, with an emphasis in queer history. After teaching the history of sexuality and queer studies for a decade at the University of California, Santa Cruz, the University of California, Berkeley, and The New College, she became a printmaker. Her prior publications are academic essays based on interviews she conducted with lesbians about their lives in the 1940s and 1950s. This is her first work of fiction. Gilmartin lives in San Francisco.

PREMIER EVENT: TIM SHRIVER
Kepler's Books, Wednesday, December 3 at 7:30pm
Premier Event: Tim Shriver

Wednesday, December 3, 7:30 p.m.

Fully Alive: Discovering What Matters Most Tickets are available at Kepler's and online at Brown Paper Tickets

Remember when you believed you could actually change the world? Perhaps you imagined, as Timothy Shriver did, that the world could be changed “into a place of love and mystery and eternity.” The son of Eunice Kennedy and Sargent Shriver, founder of the Special Olympics, and nephew of John, Robert and Ted Kennedy, Timothy was born to families who have spent their lives advocating for people on the margins, inspired largely by Tim’s aunt Rosemary who was born with intellectual disabilities. Join us for an evening with Tim as he reveals how his meetings with world icons and cultural leaders such as Nelson Mandela, and through his own work with the Special Olympics, he changed his life from one focused on power, to a life of humility and vulnerability.

Tim Shriver’s new book, Fully Alive: Discovering What Matters Most, is at once a memoir and a roadmap for a life that is radically different and inspiring. This new life is inspired by the time he has dedicated to people with intellectual disabilities as chairman of the Special Olympics and co-founder of the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), the leading research organization in the United States in the field of social and emotional learning. Is disability to be feared or welcomed, pitied or purged? Shriver argues that we all have different abilities and challenges we should embrace. Here we see how those who appear powerless have turned this seeming shortcoming into a power of their own, and we learn that we are all totally vulnerable and valuable at the same time.

Support the Special Olympics by buying a Premier Ticket; Tim is donating all of his proceeds from the book to the organization.

Pull on your PJs and bring your teddy bear to the bookstore! Author Jon Agee will be here to read you a bedtime story. Get cozy in front of the fireplace, listen to a story or two, have some milk and cookies, get your books signed, and then head home for bed.Everyone knows Santa Claus: his merry laugh, his fashionable winterwear, his penchant for milk and cookies, his teams of elves and reindeer who assist him in his mammoth, once-a-year task. But what we don't know is how Santa became Santa. For example, did you know about his siblings: Larry, Mary, Willy, Millie, Joey, and Zoe? Or that his unique method of entry, chimney-sliding, is because it's fun? Just in time for the holiday season, Jon Agee's delightful new book shows us what Santa was like as a child. Jon Agee is the creator of many acclaimed books for children, including the New York Times Best Illustrated Book Terrific, and ALA Notable Books Milo's Hat Trick and The Incredible Painting of Felix Clousseau. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, Audrey, and their Havanese puppy, Charlotte.

RICHARD FORD

Richard Ford

Friday, December 5, 7:30 p.m.

Let Me Be Frank With You

A brilliant new work that returns Richard Ford to the hallowed territory that sealed his reputation as an American master: the world of Frank Bascombe, and the landscape of his celebrated novels The Sportswriter, the Pulitzer Prize and PEN/Faulkner winning Independence Day, and The Lay of the Land.

In his trio of world-acclaimed novels portraying the life of an entire American generation, Richard Ford has imagined one of the most indelible and widely discussed characters in modern literature, Frank Bascombe. Through Bascombe—protean, funny, profane, wise, often inappropriate—we’ve witnessed the aspirations, sorrows, longings, achievements and failings of an American life in the twilight of the twentieth century.

Now, in Let Me Be Frank With You, Ford reinvents Bascombe in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. In four richly luminous narratives, Bascombe (and Ford) attempts to reconcile, interpret and console a world undone by calamity. It is a moving and wondrous and extremely funny odyssey through the America we live in at this moment. Ford is here again working with the maturity and brilliance of a writer at the absolute height of his powers.

Time reborn: From the Crisis in Physics to the Future of the Universe by Lee Smolin

"If you are looking for a bracing alternative vision of physics built from the ground up, Smolin's "Time reborn" will take you to the mountaintop." -- NPR.

Smolin's groundbreaking theory postulates that physical laws can evolve over time and the future is not yet determined. Newton's fundamental laws may not remain so fundamental." Time reborn" serves as a popular primer and investigation of time, both what it is and how the true nature of it impacts our world.

"One of the essential books of the twenty-first century . . . Smolin provides a much-needed dose of clarity about time, with implications that go far beyond physics to economics, politics, and personal philosophy." -- Jaron Lanier, author of You Are Not a Gadget.
