Storytime at KiDiMu, with Toni Yuly!
Eagle Harbor Book Company, Saturday, February 28 at 10:30am
Preschoolers can stay in their jammies Saturday, Feb. 28, and come to the Kid's Discovery Museum for a special 10:30 a.m. storytime with Bremerton author Toni Yuly!

Many youngsters enjoyed Yuly's first book, Early Worm, about a little bird who sets out early to find breakfast. Now they can hear a story about the end of the day in Night Owl. In this tale, a baby owl waits, and listens to different sounds, hoping to hear his mother. Yuly will play sound games with toddlers are she reads from her books!

"This charming exploration of sound words will stand up to repeat bedtime reads for young preschoolers," says Kirkus Reviews.

Rescheduled: Passionate Nutrition, with Jennifer Adler
Eagle Harbor Book Company, Sunday, March 1 at 3pm
Bainbridge author and nationally recognized nutritionist Jennifer Adler will be at Heydey Farm March 1 at 1pm for her rescheduled event! Passionate Nutrition: A Guide to Using Food as Medicine from a Nutritionist Who Healed Herself from the Inside Out is a great, inspirational read on making your relationship with food a happy and healthy one! The event will include a food demonstration and book signing by Jennifer,as well as a tour of Heyday Farm.

If you have bought a book from Eagle Harbor and did not get a ticket, call us at 206-842-5332 or buy the ticket below, adding a customer comment that you bought the book here. This healthy-living guidebook will inspire readers to eat well, lose or gain weight, and embrace food as a healing component of their life, and not an enemy. “Food as medicine” is a powerfully healing way to eat and was embraced by nutritionist Jennifer Adler as she recovered from a malnour­ished childhood and adolescence. Part power-foods cookbook, part handbook for healthy living and eating, and part memoir, Passionate Nutrition provides digestible information, tips, and techniques for how to find your way to optimal health. She focuses on abundant eat­ing (as opposed to restrictive eating), and explores what she calls “the healthy trinity”—digestion, balance, and whole foods. Adler guides and encourages readers to shift their diet to achieve this desirable bal­ance, introduces power foods we should all eat, and provides healthy ways to lose weight, along with simple recipes to optimize health. With her personal story interwoven, readers will be inspired to embrace the healthy power of food.

"Adler's book is an essential healthy living primer that's equal parts no-holds-barred memoir and low-key self-help tome, and a vital resource for anyone who wants to live a healthier, more empowered life. " -- Publishers Weekly

Carson Ellis, Home
Secret Garden Books, Friday, March 6 at 7pm
We are delighted to share Carson Ellis’ first picture book as both author and illustrator, Home. It is a whimsical work of art, filled with elegant full-page spreads, delicate hand-lettering, and unexpected surprises strewn throughout. From a country Home to an Atlantian one, to the familiar and unfamiliar, the book asks, What is Home? What does Home mean to you? A simple but deeply personal question, Ellis explores the concept of Home from the inside out. Carson Ellis has provided art for numerous book covers, including The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart and Penguin’s most recent reissue of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night. She is the illustrator of The Composer is Dead by Lemony Snicket and Dilweed’s Revenge by Florence Parry Heide, and collaborated with her husband Colin Meloy on the best-selling Wildwood series. She is the official illustrator-in-residence for the band The Decembrists. This event will be an evening soiree aimed primarily at her adult fans (we know you are legion!) rather than a story-time-type format. Bring your questions and bring your picture-book-loving friends and come meet one of your art heroes! In the meantime, visit Carson online here.

C.S. Harris signs Who Buries the Dead
Seattle Mystery Bookshop, Saturday, March 7 at 12pm
Saturday March 7th at Noon – C.S. Harris signs Who Buries the Dead

London, 1813. The vicious decapitation of Stanley Preston, a wealthy, socially ambitious plantation owner, at Bloody Bridge draws Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, into a macabre and increasingly perilous investigation. The discovery near the body of an aged lead coffin strap bearing the inscription King Charles, 1648 suggests a link between this killing and the beheading of the deposed seventeenth-century Stuart monarch. Equally troubling, the victim’s kinship to the current Home Secretary draws the notice of Sebastian’s powerful father-in-law, Lord Jarvis, who will exploit any means to pursue his own clandestine ends.

Working in concert with his fiercely independent wife, Hero, Sebastian finds his inquiries taking him from the wretched back alleys of Fish Street Hill to the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair as he amasses a list of suspects who range from an eccentric Chelsea curiosity collector to the brother of an unassuming but brilliantly observant spinster named Jane Austen. But as one brutal murder follows another, it is the connection between the victims and ruthless former army officer Sinclair, Lord Oliphant, which dramatically raises the stakes. Once, Oliphant nearly destroyed Sebastian in a horrific wartime act of carnage and betrayal. Now the vindictive former colonel might well pose a threat not only to Sebastian but to everything—and everyone—Sebastian holds most dear. (SeaMystery)
