John Hargrove - "Beneath the Surface"
Warwick's, 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.

S.G. Browne signs in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Friday, April 3 at 6pm
S.G. Browne, hailed by Jonathan Maberry as “One of today’s very best writers,” turns his satirical and darkly comedic senses to better living through drugs in Less Than Hero. Publishers Weekly noted: “While Browne’s novel has the trappings of a superhero story (including a shout-out to cult film Mystery Men), it works equally as a critique of a broken and corrupt pharmaceutical industry, one in which medicines often exacerbate the problems they’re designed to cure while introducing new ones.” (Please note the 6:00 start time in observance of Passover.) Scott will also appear at WonderCon in Anaheim.

Margaret Dilloway - "Sisters of Heart and Snow"
Warwick's, 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.
