Hector Tobar - "Deep Down Dark" (Tuesday, October 21 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's is hosting Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Hector Tobar on Tuesday, October 21st at 7:30pm to present his extraordinary new book, Deep Down Dark.

Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details.

The exclusive, official story of the survival, faith, and family of Chile's thirty-three trapped miners.

When the San Jose mine collapsed outside of Copiapo, Chile, in August 2010, it trapped thirty-three miners beneath thousands of feet of rock for a record-breaking sixty-nine days. Across the globe, we sat riveted to television and computer screens as journalists flocked to the Atacama desert. While we saw what transpired above ground during the grueling and protracted rescue, the story of the miners' experiences below the earth's surface--and the lives that led them there--hasn't been heard until now.

In Deep Down Dark, a master work by a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Hector Tobar gains exclusive access to the miners and their stories. The result is a miraculous and emotionally textured account of the thirty-three men who came to think of the San Jose mine as a kind of coffin, as a "cave" inflicting constant and thundering aural torment, and as a church where they sought redemption through prayer while the world watched from above. It offers an understanding of the families and personal histories that brought "los 33" to the mine, and the mystical and spiritual elements that surrounded working in such a dangerous place.

From the author of Fight Club, the classic portrait of the damaged contemporary male psyche, now comes this novel about the apocalyptic marketing possibilities of female pleasure. Sisters will be doing it for themselves. And doing it. And doing it. And doing it some more . . . Penny Harrigan is a low-level associate in a big Manhattan law firm with an apartment in Queens and no love life at all. So it comes as a great shock when she finds herself invited to dinner by one C. Linus Maxwell, aka "Climax-Well," a software mega-billionaire and lover of the most gorgeous and accomplished women on earth. After dining at Manhattan's most exclusive restaurant, he whisks Penny off to a hotel suite in Paris, where he proceeds, notebook in hand, to bring her to previously undreamed-of heights of orgasmic pleasure for days on end. What's not to like? This: Penny discovers that she is a test subject for the final development of a line of sex toys to be marketed in a nationwide chain of boutiques called Beautiful You. So potent and effective are these devices that women by the millions line up outside the stores on opening day and then lock themselves in their room with them and stop coming out. Except for batteries. Maxwell's plan for erotically enabled world domination must be stopped. But how?

Rob Bell and Kristen Bell - "The Zimzum of Love" (Tuesday, October 28 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's is hosting New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell and his wife and co-author Kristen Bell on Tuesday, October 28th at 7:30pm to present their new book, The Zimzum of Love. 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 he revolutionized traditional teaching on hell in the phenomenal New York Times bestseller Love Wins, Rob Bell now transforms how we understand and practice marriage in The Zimzum of Love, co-written with his wife, Kristen.

Despite the divorce statistics, people are still committing to each other, instinctively believing and hoping that theirs is a sacred union that will last forever. Yet when these couples encounter problems, they often lack the resources that keep them connected to this greater mystery surrounding marriage.

Rob and Kristin Bell introduce a startling new way of looking at marriage, The Zimzum of Love. Zimzum is a Hebrew term where God, in order to have a relationship with the world, contracts, creating space for the creation to exist. In marriage, zimzum is the dynamic energy field between two partners, in which each person contracts to allow the other to flourish. Mastering this field, this give and take of energy, is the secret to what makes marriage flourish.

Rob and Kristin Bell are brutally honest about their own struggles, their ups and downs, as together they pass along what matters most for couples. In this wise book, they explore the secret of what makes a happy union—probing the mystery at the heart of the extraordinary emotional connection that binds two people. With his down-to-earth charm, a dose of whimsy, and memorable stories, Rob, writing with his wife Kristen, changes how we consider marriage, providing insight that can help all of us create satisfying and sacred unions of our own.

Harry Katz - "Mark Twain's America" (Wednesday, October 29 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's is hosting author and former curator Harry Katz on Wednesday, October 29th at 7:30pm to present his latest historical work, Mark Twain's America. Harry Katz is a former Head Curator in the Division of Prints & Photographs at the Library of Congress. His books include Civil War Sketch Book, Baseball Americana, and Herblock. 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. Mark Twain is an American icon. We now know him as the author of classics, but in his day he was a controversial satirist and public figure who traveled the world and healed post-Civil War America with his tall tales, witty anecdotes, and humorous but insightful novels and stories. Twain's legacy continues to flourish over 100 years after his death.

Mark Twain's America features spectacular examples of Twain memorabilia and period Americana from the unsurpassed collections of the Library of Congress: rare illustrations, vintage photographs, popular and fine prints, period views, caricatures, cartoons, maps, and more. Excerpts from Twain's writings are framed in a lively narrative by author Harry L. Katz.

Covering the years between 1850 and 1910, the book gives readers an intimate view of Twain's many roles in life: Mississippi river boat pilot, California gold prospector, "printer's devil" at a small-town newspaper, muckraking journalist, novelist, public speaker extraordinaire, our first major celebrity author. Through letters, political cartoons, photographs and more, Mark Twain's America offers an inside look into Twain's life as well as the literary, social, and political life of America during his time.

Christine McKinley - "Physics for Rock Stars" (Thursday, October 30 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's presents the host of The History Channel's Brad Meltzer's Decoded and author Christine McKinley on Thursday, October 30th at 7:30pm to present her novel about the beauty of physics, Physics for Rock Stars: Making the Laws of the Universe Work for You. Christine McKinley is a licensed mechanical engineer. Her twenty-year engineering career has included projects in power generation, industrial facilities, and commercial construction. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details. In these uncertain times, it often seems like there’s nothing we can count on. Mechanical engineer and proud science geek Christine McKinley has some good advice: Trust the laws of gravity, motion, energy and entropy. In this funny, smart, and surprisingly practical book, McKinley offers a guided tour of the physical world, explaining everything from sound and light waves, momentum, friction, buoyancy, magnetism, and relativity—and offers advice on how to use them in our everyday lives and more glamorous pursuits.

Whether you’re a secret agent trying to cover your tracks, a war correspondent ducking into a bomb shelter, trying to jump off a high-speed train or execute the perfect stage dive, understanding physics can mean the difference between life and death (or at least looking kind of silly).

Part science book, part memoir, part extreme survival handbook, Physics for Rock Stars is the amazing science class you never had (or don’t remember.)

Teresa Rhyne - "The Dogs Were Rescued (and So Was I)" (Sunday, November 2 at 1pm)
Warwick's is hosting New York Times #1 bestselling author Teresa Rhyne on Sunday, November 2nd at 1:00pm to for a Meet & Greet. Representatives from Beagle Freedom, Labradors and Friends, and Pawtopia will be there as well. Afterwards, we'll have a Rescue Dog Parade up Girard Avenue! Teresa's latest book, The Dogs Were Rescued (And So Was I), is the passionate follow-up to the hit bestseller The Dog Will Live (and So Will I). Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details. A NEW memoir from #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Dog Lived (and So Will I).

We rescue dogs and bring them into our lives...and often they rescue us in return.

What would cause a cheese-loving, meat-eating lawyer to become a vegan? Her dog. Teresa Rhyme and Seamus the beagle both survived cancer once, so when Seamus develops yet another cancer, Teresa vows to fight again. Unsure of the best way to battle the unseen enemy, she embarks on some experiments to create a healthier life for her family. She finds better food for Seamus, and a plant-based diet becomes her own guide, but she realized that's not enough for her--and it's not enough for the animals. As she searches for a more compassionate lifestyle, she struggles to find her place somewhere between a hypocrite in leather high heels and a hippie in a hemp skirt, all while coping with the threat of Seamus slipping away.

When she encounters two other dogs who need help, including one rescued from animal testing, turning away seems impossible after everything she's discovered. Will turning her life upside down to rescue two more beagles be the best medicine for everyone?

Eben Alexander, M.D. - "The Map of Heaven" (Monday, November 3 at 7pm)
Warwick’s and the La Jolla Riford Library are pleased to host New York Times #1 bestselling author of Proof of Heaven Eben Alexander, M.D. presenting his latest book The Map of Heaven Monday, November 3rd at 7:00pm at: The La Jolla Riford Library 7555 Draper Ave, La Jolla, CA 92037 Reserved Seating is available by purchasing either the hardcover or paperback versions of the book. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details. The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Proof of Heaven teams up with the sages of times past, modern scientists, and with ordinary people who have had profound spiritual experiences to show the reality of heaven and our true identities as spiritual beings.

When Proof of Heaven was published, some readers contacted Dr. Eben Alexander to argue that his near death experience was impossible. But many more have written to say his story resonated with them in profound ways. Because of what these people have told him, Dr. Alexander has come to realize that sharing his story has allowed people to believe what so many in ancient times knew: there is more to life, and to the universe, than this single earthly life.

Dr. Alexander met and heard from thousands of individuals whom his story has affected. He also studied what the world’s religious traditions, and its philosophers, have had to say about the soul’s survival of death, and he has been deeply surprised at how often those voices from the past synch up with what he heard from people today. In The Map of Heaven, he shares some of the stories that the people have told him and links them up with what the world’s spiritual traditions have to say about the journey of the soul.

Part metaphysical detective story, part manual for living, The Map of Heaven explores humankind’s spiritual history and the birth of modern science in the seventeenth century, showing how we forgot, and are now at last remembering, who we really are and what our true destiny really is.

--*CANCELLED*-- Kimberley Hasselbrink - "Vibrant Food" (Tuesday, November 4 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's is hosting photographer and food blogger Kimberley Hasselbrink on Tuesday, November 4th at 7:30pm to present her new cookbook, Vibrant Food. Kimberley is a food photographer, writer, and creator of the acclaimed site The Year in Food, which was a finalist in Saveur's 2012 Best Food Blog Awards and has been nominated again this year. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details. The vivid colors of fresh produce inspire this artistic collection of whole foods recipes from the creator of the acclaimed blog The Year in Food. Photographer and food blogger Kimberley Hasselbrink looks at ingredients differently, regarding them in terms of what colors inspire her: the shocking fluorescent pink of a chard stem, the deep reds and purples of baby kale leaves, the bright shades of green that emerge in the spring, and even the calm yellows and whites of so many winter vegetables. Thinking about produce in terms of color has reinvigorated Hasselbrink's relationship with food, and in this collection of recipes, she employs color, flavor, and texture to build gorgeous yet unfussy dishes.

--*CANCELLED*--Robert Crais - "The Promise" (Wednesday, November 5 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's is hosting New York Times bestselling author Robert Crais on Wednesday, November 5th at 7:30pm to present his latest crime novel, The Promise. Robert Crais, one of the masters of modern crime fiction, is the author of many bestsellers including Suspect and Taken. 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. Elvis Cole and Joe Pike are joined by Suspect heroes Scott James and his K-9 partner, Maggie, in the new masterpiece of suspense from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.

Loyalty, commitment, the fight against injustice--these are the things that have always driven Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. If they make a promise, they "keep" it. Even if it could get them killed.

When Elvis Cole is hired to locate a woman who may have disappeared with a stranger she met online, it seems like an ordinary case--until Elvis learns the missing woman worked for a defense contractor and was being blackmailed to supply explosives components for a person or persons unknown.

Meanwhile, in another part of the city, LAPD officer Scott James and his patrol dog, Maggie, enter an abandoned building to locate an armed and dangerous thief, only to discover far more than they expected: The fugitive is dead, the building is filled with explosives, and Scott and Maggie are assaulted by a hidden man who escapes in the chaos, all as a bloodied Joe Pike watches from the shadows.

Soon, Scott and Maggie find themselves targeted by that man, and, as their case intertwines with Elvis and Joe's, joining forces to follow the trail of the missing woman as well. From inner-city drug traffickers to a shadowy group of Afghan war veterans with ties to a terrorist cell, the people they encounter on that trail add up to ever-increasing odds, and soon the four of them are fighting to find the woman not only before she is killed . . . but before the same fate happens to one of them.

Betty Ann Hoehn - "One River Two Oceans & Raindrops in Between" (Thursday, November 6 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's is hosting local Del Mar author and lecturer Betty Ann Hoehn on Thursday, November 6th at 7:30pm to present her compelling memoir, One River, Two Oceans & Raindrops in Between: My Journey Through Life, Love and Recovery. Betty Ann Hoehn is an author, speaker, art historian and lecturer, accomplished classical pianist and tennis player. She’s a former adjunct professor of Art History at the University of San Diego, and a guest lecturer at museums as well as the Betty Ford Center. This event is free and open to the public.

One River, Two Oceans, and Raindrops In Between is a memoir of one woman's journey through the raindrops of life, love, recovery. It is a story of an abiding friendship that crossed racial lines, an unbreakable bond that developed against all odds. Author Betty Ann Hoehn came from a wealthy white family in Memphis. Her black nanny, Corinne, came from the poor, black section of Memphis. Yet they came together in a place that knows no boundaries--the heart. "One River, Two Oceans, and Raindrops in Between" not only addresses segregation among races, but segregation among mankind as a whole. It address the impact addiction has on families, the havoc it wreaks from one generation to the next. It addresses the impact of the loss of loved ones, as well as the mistake we too often make by not saying "I love you" or "thank you" to those we love. Readers will discover there is hope.

Edward Larson - "The Return of George Washington" (Monday, November 10 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's is hosting Pulitzer Prize winning historian Edward Larson on Monday, November 10th at 7:30pm to present his compelling biography about The Return of George Washington: How the United States Was Reborn. Edward J. Larson is a professor of history and law at Pepperdine University and the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Summer for the Gods: The Scopes Trial and America's Continuing Debate Over Science and Religion. 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. Pulitzer Prize winning historian Edward J. Larson recovers a crucially important yet almost always overlooked chapter of George Washington's life, revealing how Washington saved the United States by coming out of retirement to lead the Constitutional Convention and serve as our first President.

After leading the Continental Army to victory in the Revolutionary War, George Washington shocked the world: he retired. In December 1783, General Washington, the most powerful man in the country, stepped down as Commander in Chief and returned to private life at Mount Vernon. And yet as Washington contentedly grew his estate, the fledgling American experiment floundered. Under the Articles of Confederation, the weak central government was unable to raise revenue to pay its debts or reach a consensus on national policy. The states bickered and grew apart. When a Constitutional Convention was established to address these problems, its chances of success were slim. Jefferson, Madison, and the other Founding Fathers realized only one man could unite the fractious states: George Washington. Reluctant but duty-bound, Washington rode to Philadelphia in the summer of 1787 to preside over the Convention.

Although Washington is often overlooked in most accounts of the period, this masterful new history from Pulitzer Prize winner Edward J. Larson brilliantly uncovers Washington's vital role in shaping the Convention and shows how it was only with Washington's support and his willingness to serve as president that the states were brought together to ratify the Constitution, thereby saving the country.

Lorna Landvik - "Best to Laugh" & "Mayor of the Universe" (Tuesday, November 11 at 7:30pm)
Warwick's is hosting best selling author Lorna Landvik on Tuesday, November 11th at 7:30pm to present two of her hilariously funny new books, Best to Laugh and Mayor of the Universe. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details. Best to Laugh No one steps up to life's banquet, holds out her tray, and orders, "Grief, please!" But as a child, Candy Pekkala was served a heaping helping of it. Every buffet line has a dessert section, however, and when a cousin calls with a Hollywood apartment to sublet, it seems as though Candy is finally offered something sweet. It's good-bye to Minnesota and hello to California, where a girl who has always lived by her wits has a real chance of making a living with them. With that, the irrepressible Lorna Landvik launches her latest irresistible character onto the world stage--or at least onto the dimly lit small stage where stand-up comedy gets its start.

Herself a comic performer, Landvik taps her own adventurous past and Minnesota roots to conjure Candy's life in this strange new Technicolor home. Her fellow tenants at Peyton Hall include a female bodybuilder, a ruined nightclub impresario, and a well-connected old Romanian fortune-teller. There are game show appearances and temp jobs at a record company and an establishment suspiciously like the Playboy Mansion, and of course the alluring but not always welcoming stage of stand-up comedy. As she hones her act, Candy is tested by humiliation, hecklers, and the inherent sexism that insists "chicks aren't funny."

Written with the light touch and quiet wisdom that have made her works so popular, this is classic Lorna Landvik--sometimes so funny, you'll cry; sometimes so sad, you might as well laugh; and always impossible to put down. Mayor of the Universe A mild-mannered actuary, Fletcher Weschel lives at the crossroads of Bland and Humdrum--or so he thinks until a cosmic contest catapults him into the fantasy world he made up as a boy. Suddenly his childhood bedroom is aswarm with aliens, all bent on discovering the human who best personifies their mission--in this case, the deeply serious pursuit of fun.

Ejected from the boring comfort of his office chair, Fletcher finds himself astride the bare back of a horse, in front of a safe (that he happens to be cracking), and then . . . in the cabin of a weight-loss camp for kids? Apparently adventures come in all shapes and sizes, and it's up to Fletcher to make the most of these, conducted by his alien guide, Tandala, who takes on the corporeal form of a big-boned Jamaican and tends to get distracted by Earth's many surprising pleasures (garlic! libraries! love!).

But even fantasies can have consequences, and as Fletcher struggles through them, he is cheered and assisted by Wanda Plum, a plucky second-grade teacher who helps him realize what his ultimate role really is on this highly mysterious, infinitely marvelous pale-blue dot in a vast universe. Though its cast includes aliens, this charmed and charming book is quintessential Lorna Landvik--less about outer space than about the crowded, complex inner space of the human heart.

    Howard Schultz & Rajiv Chandrasedaran - "For The Love of Country" (Thursday, November 13 at 6:30pm)
    Warwick’s and Qualcomm present The Chairman and CEO of Starbucks

    Howard Schultz & The National Editor of The Washington Post

    Rajiv Chandrasedaran discussing and signing For The Love of Country Thursday, November 13th, 6:30PM at:

    Irwin M. Jacobs Qualcomm Hall 5775 Morehouse Drive San Diego, CA 92121 This is a ticketed event Check-in and doors open at 5:30PM and seating is first-come first-served. Please call the Warwick's Book Department at 858-454-0347 for more information.

    A celebration of the extraordinary courage, dedication, and sacrifice of this generation of American veterans on the battlefield and their equally valuable contributions on the home front.

    Because so few of us now serve in the military, our men and women in uniform have become strangers to us. We stand up at athletic events to honor them, but we hardly know their true measure. Here, Starbucks CEO and longtime veterans' advocate Howard Schultz and National Book Award finalist Rajiv Chandrasekaran of The Washington Post offer an enlightening, inspiring corrective.

    The authors honor acts of uncommon valor in Iraq and Afghanistan, including an Army sergeant who repeatedly runs through a storm of gunfire to save the lives of his wounded comrades; two Marines who sacrifice their lives to halt an oncoming truck bomb and protect thirty-three of their brothers in arms; a sixty-year-old doctor who joins the Navy to honor his fallen son.

    We also see how veterans make vital contributions once they return home, drawing on their leadership skills and commitment to service: former soldiers who aid residents in rebuilding after natural disasters; a former infantry officer who trades in a Pentagon job to teach in an inner-city neighborhood; a retired general leading efforts to improve treatments for brain-injured troops; the spouse of a severely injured soldier assisting families in similar positions.

    These powerful, unforgettable stories demonstrate just how indebted we are to those who protect us and what they have to offer our nation when their military service is done.

    María Dueñas - "The Heart Has Its Reasons" (Wednesday, November 19 at 7:30pm)
    Warwick's is hosting New York Times bestselling author María Dueñas on Wednesday, November 19th at 7:30pm to discuss and sign her new novel, The Heart Has Its Reasons. Maria holds a PhD in English Philology and is currently a professor at the University of Murcia. 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. Declared "a writer to watch" (Publishers Weekly, starred review), New York Times bestselling author María Dueñas pours heart and soul into this story of a woman who discovers the power of second chances. With her debut novel The Time in Between María Dueñas garnered outstanding acclaim and inspired a TV series, dubbed the "Spanish Downton Abbey" by the media. USA TODAY said of the book: "From a terrific opening line to the final page, chapters zip by at a pulsing pace." Now Dueñas returns with a novel about a heartbroken woman's attempt to pick up the pieces of her shattered world. Blanca Perea is a college professor in Madrid who seems to have it all. But her perfect career and marriage start to unravel when her husband of twenty years suddenly leaves her for another woman. Devastated, Blanca is forced to question the life she once had and how well she truly knows herself. She leaves Madrid for San Francisco, where she becomes entrenched in the history of an enigmatic Spanish writer who died decades earlier. The more Blanca discovers about this man, the more she is enthralled by the ill-fated loves, half truths, and silent ambitions that haunted his life. With lush, imaginative prose and unforgettable characters, The Heart Has Its Reasons is a journey of the soul that takes readers from Spain to California, between the thorny past and all-too-real present. It is a story about the thrill of creating one's life anew.
