Justin Go-"The Steady Running of the Hour"
Warwick's, Monday, April 21 at 7:30pm
Debut author Justin Go will be at Warwick's on Monday, April 21st at 7:30pm to discuss and sign The Steady Running of the Hour. Reserved Seating is available, call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 to purchase.

In 1924, the English mountaineer Ashley Walsingham dies attempting to summit Mount Everest, leaving his fortune to his former lover, Imogen Soames-Andersson, whom he has not seen in seven years. Ashley’s solicitors search in vain for Imogen, but the estate remains unclaimed. Nearly eighty years later, new information leads the same law firm to Tristan Campbell, the young American who could be the estate’s rightful heir. If Tristan can prove he is Imogen’s descendant, the inheritance will be his. But with only weeks before Ashley’s trust expires, Tristan must hurry to find the evidence he needs. From London archives to the battlefields of the Somme, to the Eastfjords of Iceland, Tristan races to piece together the story behind the unclaimed riches: a reckless love affair pursued only days before Ashley’s deployment to the Western Front; a desperate trench battle fought by soldiers whose hope is survival rather than victory; an expedition to the uncharted heights of the world’s tallest mountain. Following a trail of evidence that stretches to the far edge of Europe, Tristan becomes consumed by Ashley and Imogen’s story. But as he draws close to the truth, Tristan realizes he may be seeking something more than an unclaimed fortune.

On April 23, 25,000 passionate volunteers across America will give away half a million books within their communities to those who don’t regularly read. In 2013, World Book Night was celebrated in the U.S., the UK, Ireland, and Germany and saw over 80,000 people gift more than 2.5 million books.

2014 World Book Night USA
Warwick's, Wednesday, April 23 at 00am
World Book Night is April 23, 2014!

Once again, Warwick’s is honored to be a host bookstore for World Book Night. If you would like to participate in this worldwide event please visit http://www.us.worldbooknight.org or click here.

What is World Book Night? World Book Night is an annual celebration dedicated to spreading the love of reading, person to person. Each year on April 23, tens of thousands of people go out into their communities and give half a million free World Book Night paperbacks to light and non-readers.

World Book Night is about giving books and encouraging reading in those who don’t regularly do so. But it is also about more than that: It’s about people, communities and connections, about reaching out to others and touching lives in the simplest of ways—through the sharing of stories.

World Book Night is a nonprofit organization that exists because of the support of thousands of book givers, booksellers, librarians, and financial supporters. Set for April 23rd each year to honor Shakespeare’s birthday, World Book Night was successfully launched in the U.K. in 2011, and World Book Night was first celebrated in the U.S.A. in 2012.

Why does World Book Night exist? Reading for pleasure improves literacy, actively engaging emerging readers in their desire to read. Reading changes lives, improves employability, social interaction, enfranchisement, and can have a positive effect on mental health and happiness. Book readers of all ages are more likely to participate in positive activities such as volunteering, attending cultural events, and even physical exercise. Or more simply put, books are fun—and they can be life--‐changing.

This is a fantastic opportunity to give back to your community. Click here to sign-up or to learn more.

Warwick's, Friday, April 25 at 2pm
Meet Chelsea Handler, bestselling author and star of Chelsea Lately, at Warwick’s on Friday, April 25th at 2:00pm as she signs her new book Uganda Be Kidding Me. Tickets are $29.16 and include admittance for 2 adults as well as a copy of Uganda Be Kidding Me. Click here for tickets.

Only books purchased from Warwick’s will be signed.* Tickets must be printed and brought to the event. Will Call opens at 9:00am on April 25th. Books will not be available until that time. Doors to the signing will open at 1:30pm. Due to the high volume of tickets sold, we recommend you pick up your book prior to 1:30pm. Signing begins at 2:00pm. Signing Line is on a first come, first served basis. No photographs allowed. No signing of memorabilia allowed. Parking restrictions in La Jolla are strictly enforced, please plan accordingly.

*While supplies last

Whether it's finding a lion hogging the gym (Botswana) or enjoying the view of the Matterhorn from her medevac helicopter (a little incident involving a torn ACL and morphine) Chelsea Handler finds the ridiculous and writes about it. Uganda Be Kidding Me is a collection of tales from her travels and misadventures around the world, and it's hard to tell who's more dangerous, Chelsea or the wildlife. And when things get really scary, like finding herself stuck next to a passenger with bad breath, she knows she can rely on her family to make matters even worse. Thank goodness she has her beloved dog, Chunk by her side, until she loses him in Telluride. Of course she finds Chunk, and even more unexpected hi-jinks ensue!

Sue Ann Jaffarian and Naomi Hirahara Sign in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Saturday, April 26 at 12pm
Sue Ann Jaffarian Naomi Hirahara

As the Berkley Prime Crime imprint celebrates its 20th anniversary, MGSD is delighted to host a pair of Prime Crime local authors at high noon.

With three mystery series under her belt and a career as a paralegal, one might wonder when Sue Ann Jaffarian has downtime. Sue Ann waited until 1995 to undertake a career as a novelist, becoming a dedicated writer, and completing two novels before switching to the genre of mystery. With a background as a paralegal, writing mysteries seemed to fall into place. Ghost of a Gamble is the sixth book in the popular Ghost of Granny Apples Mystery series.

Naomi Hirahara’s first book, Summer of the Big Bachi, was not only a finalist for Barbara Kingsolver’s Bellwether Prize, but was also a nominee for a Macavity mystery award. Not bad for a debut! The former reporter and editor for The Rafu Shimpo wrote four more books in the Mas Arai series. Naomi’s latest book, Murder on Bamboo Lane, is the first book in the Officer Ellie Rush series, and features a 22-year-old LAPD bicycle cop. (See Sarah’s review on our website.)
