Jane O'Connor & Robin Preiss Glasser ~ March 5
Hicklebee's, Thursday, March 5 at 3pm
Hold on to your tutus!

Hicklebee's is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the fabulously fun Fancy Nancy books with author Jane O'Connor and illustrator Robin Preiss Glasser.

Thursday, March 5th @ 3:00 (presentation at 3:30)

Fancy Nancy celebrates a decade—that's fancy for ten years!—in this special anniversary edition of the first Fancy Nancy. This extra-fancy edition features a link to a free downloadable song from Fancy Nancy the Musical and includes a sheet of lyrics to the song in the back of the book.

This book introduces Nancy, who believes that more is ALWAYS better when it comes to being fancy. From the top of her tiara down to her sparkly studded shoes, Nancy is determined to teach her family a thing or two about being fancy. Fancy Nancy fans and little girls alike are sure to delight in this special edition of a household favorite.

Jane O'Connor has always had a secret fondness for froufrou. An editor at a major publishing house, she has written more than thirty books for children. She lives with her family in the glamour capital of the world – New York City.

Robin Preiss Glasser, who habitually sports glasses and jeans, discovered her "inner Nancy" while illustrating this book. "Wearing lace-trimmed socks helps me draw better," she says. She has illustrated many books and lives in Southern California with her family and tiara collection.

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.

Wednesday, March 11, 7:30 a.m.

I Dare Me

Sharon Heights Golf & Country Club Ballroom, 2900 Sand Hill Road, Menlo Park Tickets are available online at Bay Area Cancer Connections

Ready to reboot and recharge your life? Lu Ann will help you design your own personal I Dare Me adventure. Be prepared to play, share, and “wear your dare” in this workshop limited to 50 people. Signed book included.

Lu Ann Cahn is an 8-time Emmy award-winning journalist, breast cancer survivor and author. Her memoir, I Dare Me, is an entertaining look back on a year that changed everything for her. The book grew out of a blog called "Year of Firsts", which chronicled her daily adventures as she pushed herself to try something new for every single day – an effort to get her life “unstuck,” as her daughter put it.

Complimentary valet parking.

Jacqueline Davies ~ March 12
Hicklebee's, Thursday, March 12 at 3:30pm
Jacqueline Davies drops by Hicklebee's with the fifth and final book in The Lemonade Wars series, The Magic Trap.

Thursday March 12th at 3:30

"One of the pleasures of reading The Lemonade War Series, which began with The Lemonade War (2007), is watching the gradual development of the two main characters and the subtle shifts in their relationship, never more apparent than in this story. As the third-person narrative switches from one child’s point of view to the other, the contrast between the two is marked and consistently believable. Readers intrigued by the magic theme will also appreciate the appended instructions for a card trick. The series’ many fans won’t want to miss this one."—Booklist

Come meet this amazing author!
