Early Warning

Pulitzer Prize winning author Jane Smiley brings us the second volume in The Last Hundred Years trilogy, which started with Some luck, long-listed for the National Book award. Come help us celebrate the publication of Early Warning, the book that chronicles the Langdon's family journey through mid-century America.

Early Warning opens in 1953 with the Langdons at a crossroads. Without spoiling it for those of you who haven't read Some luck, the five Langdon children are left looking to the future. One remains to work the Iowa farm, while the others scatter to Washington, DC, California, and everywhere in between.

The Langdon children then have children of their own: twin boys who are best friends and vicious rivals; a girl whose rebellious spirit takes her to the notorious Peoples Temple in San Francisco; and a golden boy who drops out of college to fight in Vietnam—leaving behind a secret legacy that will send shockwaves through the Langdon family into the next generation.

The book captures an indelible period in America - the Cold War, the social and sexual revolutions of the 1960s and '70s, and the unprecedented wealth of the early '80s - through the lens of richly drawn characters we come to know and love.

Jane Smiley is the author of numerous novels, including A Thousand Acres, which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. A member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, she has also received the PEN USA Lifetime Achievement Award for Literature.

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes by Anita Loos

This delirious 1925 Jazz Age classic introduced readers to Lorelei Lee, the small-town girl from Little Rock, who has become one of the most timeless characters in American fiction. Outrageous and charming, this not-so-dumb blonde has been portrayed on stage and screen by Carol Channing and Marilyn Monroe and has become the archetype of the footloose, good-hearted gold digger (not that she sees herself that way).

PREMIER EVENT: ANDREW KEEN
Kepler's Books, Wednesday, May 20 at 7:30pm
PREMIER EVENT: Andrew Keen

Wednesday, May 20, 7:30 p.m.

The Internet Is Not the Answer Tickets are available at Kepler's and online at Brown Paper Tickets

Called the "Christopher Hitchens of the Internet," Andrew Keen describes the ways in which an expanding circle of wealthy "monopolistic" companies like Amazon, Uber, Airbnb, Spotify and others are disrupting in ways that are hardly as noble as they want us to believe.

Watch the provocative book trailer HERE and prepare for a deluge of intellectual debate and controversy. He has been called the "conscience of the internet" and "the voice of humanity amidst the digitization of our world," and The Internet Is Not the Answer is "the best and most readable critique of Silicon Valley yet."

This book traces the technological and economic history of the Internet, from its founding in the 1960s to the creation of the World Wide Web in 1989, through the waves of startups and the rise of the big data companies to the increasing attempts to monetize almost every human activity. In this sharp, witty narrative, informed by the work of other writers, reporters, and academics as well as his own research and interviews, Keen shows us the tech world, warts and all - from hoodie-wearing misfit millionaires to the NSA's all-encompassing online surveillance to the impact of the Internet on unemployment and economic inequality.

Andrew Keen is an entrepreneur who founded Audiocafe.com in 1995 and built it into a popular first generation Internet company. He is the executive director of the Silicon Valley salon FutureCast, the host of the Techonomy web series "Keen On," a columnist for CNN and has been featured in the national media, including on CNN, NPR and "Colbert Report." He has spoken at LeWeb, DLD, Disrupt, Next Web and TEDx. His books include Digital Vertigo and the Cult of the Amateur, and he lives in San Francisco.

Planck: Driven by Vision, Broken by War

Max Planck, one of the most famous physicians in the world and described by Albert Einstein as "the basis of all twentieth-century physics," is credited with being the father of quantum theory. His work laid the foundation for our modern understanding of matter and energetic processes. But, until now, Planck's story was not well known, especially in the United States. All of his personal documents were destroyed in World War II, so other than his contributions to science, what remains are handwritten letters in German shorthand and tributes from other scientists of the time.

Brandon R. Brown interweaves the voices and writings of Planck, his family, and his contemporaries to create a portrait of a groundbreaking physicist working in the midst of war. The story of a brilliant man living in a dangerous time, Brandon Brown gives Max Planck his rightful place in the history of science, and shows how war-torn Germany deeply impacted his life and work.

Brown is a Professor of Physics at the University of San Francisco. His biophysics work on the electric sense of sharks, as covered by NPR and the BBC, has appeared in Nature, The Physical Review, and other research journals. His writing for general audiences has appeared in New Scientist, SEED, the Huffington Post, and others.
