John Hargrove - "Beneath the Surface" (Wednesday, April 1 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's is hosting former SeaWorld orca trainer John Hargrove on Wednesday, April 1st at 7:30pm to present his first-hand account of the lives of captive killer whales, Beneath the Surface: Killer Whales, SeaWorld, and the Truth Beyond Blackfish. John has 14 years’ experience as a killer whale trainer spanning both SeaWorld of California and SeaWorld of Texas where he was promoted to the highest ranking Senior Trainer. He resigned his position with SeaWorld in August 2012. This event is free and open to the public. Reserved Seating is available. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Department at 858-454-0347 for more information. Over the course of two decades, John Hargrove worked with 20 different whales on two continents and at two of SeaWorld's U.S. facilities. For Hargrove, becoming an orca trainer fulfilled a childhood dream. However, as his experience with the whales deepened, Hargrove came to doubt that their needs could ever be met in captivity. When two fellow trainers were killed by orcas in marine parks, Hargrove decided that SeaWorld's wildly popular programs were both detrimental to the whales and ultimately unsafe for trainers. After leaving SeaWorld, Hargrove became one of the stars of the controversial documentary Blackfish. The outcry over the treatment of SeaWorld's orca has now expanded beyond the outlines sketched by the award-winning documentary, with Hargrove contributing his expertise to an advocacy movement that is convincing both federal and state governments to act. In Beneath the Surface, Hargrove paints a compelling portrait of these highly intelligent and social creatures, including his favorite whales Takara and her mother Kasatka, two of the most dominant orcas in SeaWorld. And he includes vibrant descriptions of the lives of orcas in the wild, contrasting their freedom in the ocean with their lives in SeaWorld. Hargrove's journey is one that humanity has just begun to take--toward the realization that the relationship between the human and animal worlds must be radically rethought.

Margaret Dilloway - "Sisters of Heart and Snow" (Tuesday, April 7 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's is hosting author Margaret Dilloway on Tuesday, April 7th at 7:30pm with a launch event to present her brilliant story of estranged sisters reunited, Sisters of Heart and Snow. She teaches creative writing classes at San Diego Writers Ink and to high school students at her alma mater. You can learn more about her by visiting her “American Housewife” blog at www.margaretdilloway.com. This event is free and open to the public. Reserved Seating is available. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details. The award-winning author of How to Be an American Housewife returns with a poignant story of estranged sisters, forced together by family tragedy, who soon learn that sisterhood knows no limits.

Rachel and Drew Snow may be sisters, but their lives have followed completely different paths.

Married to a wonderful man and is a mother to two strong-minded teens, Rachel hasn't returned to her childhood home since being kicked out by her strict father after an act of careless teenage rebellion. Drew, her younger sister, followed her passion for music but takes side jobs to make ends meet and longs for the stability that has always eluded her. Both sisters recall how close they were, but the distance between them seems more than they can bridge. When their deferential Japanese mother, Haruki, is diagnosed with dementia and gives Rachel power of attorney, Rachel's domineering father, Killian becomes enraged.

In a rare moment of lucidity, Haruki asks Rachel for a book in her sewing room, and Rachel enlists her sister's help in the search. The book--which tells the tale of real-life female samurai Tomoe Gozen, an epic saga of love, loss, and conflict during twelfth-century Japan--reveals truths about Drew and Rachel's relationship that resonate across the centuries, connecting them in ways that turn their differences into assets.

She eagerly jets off to France while Chase stays home, working with her father, a former senator, on his upcoming mayoral campaign.

Everything feels unbelievably perfect...until the hotel loses her reservation hours before her big interview. Serena fears that she'll have to go home without her story, but then she meets Zoe, a quirky young woman staying in the suite below Yvette's who invites Serena to stay with her. Serena is grateful for her mysterious roommate's generosity, but it seems that there's more to her story than meets the eye. To make matters worse, soon after arriving in Cannes, Serena learns a shocking secret about her parents' marriage, and it isn't long before she begins to question her own relationship. With her deadline looming and pressure mounting, Serena will have to use her investigative journalism skills, new friendships, and a little luck to get her life and love back on track.

With penetrating insight, Fagan shows how the powerful bond between Homo Sapiens and other species has determined the course of civilizations, and shaped human character.

With his historic win at the 2014 Boston Marathon, Meb Keflezighi cemented his legacy as one of the great champions of long-distance running. Runners everywhere wanted to know: How did someone two weeks shy of his 39th birthday - who had only the 15th best time going into the race and years of injuries and setbacks - run his personal best, and become the first American man to win Boston since 1983? For the first time, and in unprecedented detail, Meb reveals his complete training program in his new book, Meb for Mortals: How to Run, Eat and Think like a Champion Marathoner (co-written with Runner’s World senior content editor Scott Douglas I April 7, 2015) in which he instructs everyday runners how to put into practice the training, nutritional, and mental principles that have guided Meb through his long career.

Often considered the “little things” - cross-training, nutrition, stretching and recovery - Meb treats these as fundamental to being the best runner he can be. Meb includes practical guidance on a wide range of topics including: How to set goals to succeed and experience joy from accomplishing something meaningful – whether this is to establish a regular running routine, or more competitive goals like running a race or setting a personal record. The importance of form and how you can improve your form, no matter the starting point. Meb’s training program principles, including detailed strategies for strength training, stretches and recovery – all integral to being a healthy runner - and 4 samples of Meb’s real training schedules for running a 5-k, 10-k, half-marathon and marathon. The basic elements of a daily diet to best fuel running; a detailed breakdown of Meb’s typical training diet and what he eats before a race, and how Meb gets to his preferred racing weight. How to prep mentally for race day, including tips for the morning-of warm-up and how to stay ahead of the mind games during the race.

Whether you’re a long-time marathoner or looking to become a regular runner, Meb for Mortals shares the secrets of a champion athlete who wasn’t born a champion, but became one through hard work, discipline, and a set of guiding principles all runners can use to improve, enjoy and stay on the track as long as possible.

Meb Keflezighi (Kef-lez-ghee) is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest runners of our time. The three-time Olympian is the only person in history to win the New York Marathon (2009), the Boston Marathon (2014) and an Olympic medal (2004), on top of more than 20 national titles. He is the founder of the MEB Foundation, which funds programs that promote fitness and other positive lifestyle choices for children. His first book, Run to Overcome, came out in October 2010. He lives in San Diego, CA.

Andrew Roe - "The Miracle Girl" (Wednesday, April 29 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's is proud to host Andrew Roe on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 at 7:30pm to present his debut novel, The Miracle Girl. Andrew Roe's fiction has been published in Tin House, One Story, The Sun, Glimmer Train, Slice, The Cincinnati Review, and other publications. His nonfiction has been published in the New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Salon.com, and elsewhere. He lives in Oceanside, California, with his wife and three children. This event is free and open to the public. Reserved Seating is available. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details. The Miracle Girl is set in suburban Los Angeles, where eight-year old Anabelle lies in her bedroom. Day in and day out, she lies there, eyes open, but otherwise immobile in a coma-like state, as a result of a car accident. She is cared for by her mother, since her father has left them, unable to deal with the guilt from having caused the accident. After a family friend experiences a miracle when visiting with Anabelle, word spreads and people start coming from all over, lining up down the block in the hot sun, camping out, vendors selling bottles of water, the media knocking on the door.

Told in many voices, including Annabelle’s herself, The Miracle Girl keeps you turning pages until the very end to find out what happens, and if indeed it is anything miraculous. This novel earnestly tackles the questions of what to believe in, or how to believe in anything, when we’re barraged with as much information as we are.

Eric Blehm - "Legend" (Thursday, April 30 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's is proud to host Eric Blehm, the New York Times bestselling author of Fearless: The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator Adam Brown (2012) on Thursday, April 30, 2015 at 7:30pm to present his new book Legend, an eye-opening account of a Special Forces operation during the Vietnam War. Eric's mountain literature classic, The Last Season (2006) was named by Outside magazine one of the ten “greatest adventure biographies ever written” in 2009. In 1999, Blehm became the first journalist to accompany and keep pace with an elite Army Ranger unit on a training mission. Reserved Seating is available. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details.

In Legend, acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Eric Blehm takes as his canvas the Vietnam War, as seen through a single mission that occurred on May 2, 1968. A twelve-man Special Forces team had been covertly inserted into a small clearing in the jungles of neutral Cambodia—where U.S. forces were forbidden to operate. Their objective, just miles over the Vietnam border, was to collect evidence that proved the North Vietnamese Army was using the Cambodian sanctuary as a major conduit for supplying troops and materiel to the south via the Ho Chi Minh Trail. What the team didn’t know was that they had infiltrated a section of jungle that concealed a major enemy base. Soon they found themselves surrounded by hundreds of NVA, under attack, low on ammunition, stacking the bodies of the dead as cover in a desperate attempt to survive the onslaught.

When Special Forces Staff Sergeant Roy Benavidez heard the distress call, he without hesitation jumped aboard the next helicopter bound for the combat zone. Orphaned at the age of seven, Benavidez had picked cotton alongside his family as a child and dropped out of school as a teen before joining the Army. Although he was grievously wounded during his first tour of duty in Vietnam and told he would never walk again, Benavidez fought his way back—ultimately earning his green beret.

What followed would become legend in the Special Operations community. Flown into the foray of battle by the courageous pilots and crew of the 240th Assault Helicopter Company, Benavidez jumped from the hovering aircraft, and ran nearly 100 yards through withering enemy fire. Despite being immediately and severely wounded, Benavidez reached the perimeter of the decimated team, provided medical care, and proceeded to organize an extraordinary defense and rescue. During the hours-long battle, he was bayoneted, shot, and hit by grenade shrapnel more than thirty times, yet he refused to abandon his efforts until every survivor was out of harm’s way.

Written with extensive access to family members, surviving members of the 240th Assault Helicopter Company, on-the-ground eyewitness accounts never before published, as well as recently discovered archival and declassified military records, Legend is a riveting narrative both of Roy Benavidez’s life and career, and of the inspiring, almost unbelievable events that defined the brotherhood of the air and ground warriors in an unpopular war halfway around the world. The book recounts the courage and commitment of those who fought in Vietnam in service of their country, and the story of one of the many unsung heroes of the war, whose actions would be scrutinized for more than a decade in a battle for a long overdue, and what many believed was an unjustly denied, Medal of Honor.

Ryan Gattis - "All Involved" (Tuesday, May 12 at 7pm)
Warwick’s and the La Jolla Riford Library are pleased to host the author of the first major American novel about the Los Angeles race riots of 1992 Ryan Gattis presenting All Involved Tuesday, May 12th at 7:00pm at: The La Jolla Riford Library 7555 Draper Ave, La Jolla, CA 92037 Reserved Seating is available. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details. Ryan Gattis is a novelist, lecturer at Chapman University, and Creative Director for urban art crew UGLAR. He is the author of the novels Roo Kickkick & The Big Bad Blimp; Kung Fu High School, The Big Drop: Homecoming and The Big Drop: Impermanence. He lives in Los Angeles.

A propulsive and ambitious novel as electrifying as The Wire, from a writer hailed as the West Coast’s Richard Price—a brutal and mesmerizing epic of crime and opportunity, race, revenge, and loyalty, set in the chaotic streets of South Central L.A. in the wake of one of the most notorious, incendiary, and racially charged trials of the 1990s, involving the severe beating of a civilian black man and three white LAPD officers.

David Mitchell, author of Bone Clocks and Cloud Atlas has said of the novel, "a symphonic, pitch-perfect, superlative novel. It is visceral and adrenalin-fuelled, yet tender and even darkly comic. It is audacious, unflinching and subversive. It doesn't judge. It swallowed me whole."

At 3:15 p.m. on April 29, 1992, a jury acquitted two Los Angeles Police Department officers charged with using excessive force to subdue civilian Rodney King, and failed to reach a verdict on the same charges involving a third officer. Less than two hours later, the city of L.A., a powder keg of racial tension, exploded in violence as people took to the streets in a riot that lasted six days. In 144 hours, fifty-three lives were lost. Yet, that number does not account for the murders that occurred outside active rioting sites—some committed by gangbangers who used the chaos to viciously settle old scores.

A gritty and cinematic work of fiction, All Involved vividly recreates this turbulent and terrifying time through seventeen interconnected first-person narratives. Focusing on a sliver of Los Angeles almost completely ignored by the media during the riots, Ryan Gattis paints a portrait of modern America itself—laying bare our history, our prejudices, and our complexities. Resonant with the voices of gang members, firefighters, graffiti kids, and nurses caught up in these extraordinary circumstances, All Involved is a literary tour de force that catapults this edgy writer into the ranks of such legendary talents as Dennis Lehane and George V. Higgins.

Brandon Webb - "Among Heroes" (Thursday, May 28 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's is proud to be hosting former Navy SEAL and New York Times author of The Red Circle, Brandon Webb on Thursday, May 28th at 7:30pm to talk about and sign his newest book, Among Heroes. This event is free and open to the public. Reserved Seating is available. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details. As a Navy SEAL, Brandon Webb rose to the top of the world’s most elite sniper corps, experiencing years of punishing training and combat missions from the Persian Gulf to Afghanistan. Among the best of the best, he led the SEALs’ clandestine sniper training program as course manager after September 11, as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were heating up, instructing a new generation of the world’s top snipers. Along the way Webb served beside, trained, and supported men he came to know not just as fellow warriors, but as friends.

Among Heroes is Webb’s poignant tribute to the remarkable valor and abiding humanity of those “sheep dogs” (as they call themselves) who protect us from the wolves of the world. These include the story of Matt “Axe” Axelson, who perished on the Lone Survivor mission in Afghanistan. He shares the heroism of Chris Campbell, Heath Robinson, and JT Tumilson, who were among the thirty-eight casualties of Extortion-17, the Chinook helicopter shot down in August 2011. With the book nearly finished, Webb didn’t expect to have to include the legacy of Glen Doherty, his best friend for more than a decade, killed while helping secure the successful rescue and extraction of American CIA and State Department diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012.

Warwick's is hosting co-authors of the Blockbuster novel Your Perfect Life Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke on Monday, June 8th at 7:30pm to present their newest work The Status of All Things, a heartwarming and hilarious novel that follows a woman who discovers she can change her life through online status updates.

Kate is a thirty-five-year-old woman who is obsessed with social media. So when her fiancé, Max, breaks things off at their rehearsal dinner—to be with Kate’s close friend and coworker, no less—she goes straight to Facebook to share it with the world. But something’s changed. Suddenly, Kate’s real life starts to mirror whatever she writes in her Facebook status. With all the power at her fingertips, and heartbroken and confused over why Max left her, Kate goes back in time to rewrite their history.
