Eric Torney - Marinship (Sausalito)

Wednesday, December 6, 2017 - 6:00pm

Eric Torney's most recent movie, Marinship: World's Most Amazing Shipyard, is the result of a passion he have developed due to the discovery of a trove of historic material about the shipyard. This totally nonfiction, not for profit, and not for sale video made on a zero budget tells the amazing story of how a shipyard was hastily built in Sausalito during the opening months of the United States of America's involvement in WWII to fulfill a dire need for cargo ships. The U. S. Maritime Commission had the onerous task of replacing cargo ships which were being sunk by German Wolf Pack U Boats at a rate approaching 80 per month (on some days 4 ships were sunk). A shipyard was requested for the West Coast. The Sausalito site was chosen because the recently opened Golden Gate Bridge had caused the demise and closure of the local NWP Commuter Railroad, leaving a fully operable rail transportation system with an adjacent deep water channel originally used by the NWP ferry boats. On 28 March, 1942 construction was begun on a vacant mudflat. Three months later a cargo ship's keel was laid on a not yet complete shipway. Amazingly, six months after construction began on the mudflat a ship was launched. The movie tells this amazing story.

Eric Torney is a 4th generation California native. His great great grandfather, Charles Fardon Langley, arrived in San Francisco in 1851, after an ocean voyage from New York to San Francisco as crew on the famous Clipper Ship Flying Cloud. Charles had booked passage with his cargo of medicine to sell to gold miners. The Flying Cloud made the passage in the world record time of 89 days. Charles set up a tent near what today is Union Square and sold his entire cargo in one day. The company Charles founded, after several buyouts, today is McKesson. Living in Marin all of his life, Eric graduated from Kent School, Redwood High School, College of Marin, and U.C. Berkeley. Now a retired remodeling contractor living in Greenbrae he volunteers at Sausalito Historical Society and has produced several exhibits featuring Marinship.

Cara Black - Murder in Saint-Germain (Sausalito)

Saturday, November 4, 2017 - 5:00pm

Paris, July 1999: Private investigator Aimee Leduc is walking through Saint-Germain when she is accosted by Suzanne Lesage, a Brigade Criminelle agent on an elite counterterrorism squad. In Murder in Saint-Germain Suzanne has just returned from the former Yugoslavia, where she was hunting down dangerous war criminals for the Hague. Back in Paris, Suzanne is convinced she's being stalked by a ghost--a Serbian warlord her team took down. She's suffering from PTSD and her boss thinks she's imagining things. She begs Aimee to investigate--is it possible Mirko Vladic could be alive and in Paris with a blood vendetta?

Aimee is already working on a huge case; plus, she's got an eight-month-old baby to take care of. But she can't say no to Suzanne, whom she owes a big favor. Aimee chases the few leads she has, and all evidence confirms Mirko Vladic is dead. It seems that Suzanne is in fact paranoid, perhaps losing her mind--until Suzanne's team begins to die in a series of strange, tragic accidents. Are these just coincidences? Or are things not what they seem?

Cara Black is the author of seventeen books in the New York Times bestselling Aimée Leduc series. She has received multiple nominations for the Anthony and Macavity Awards, and her books have been translated into German, Norwegian, Japanese, French, Spanish, Italian, and Hebrew. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and visits Paris frequently.

Wilford Welch - In Our Hands (Sausalito)

Wednesday, January 31, 2018 - 6:00pm

In Our Hands shows you the exciting, satisfying roles you can play to solve the climate crisis and just how you can create a better world for yourself, your children, and grandchildren by getting engaged.
The book explains why global warming and climate change do not have to be scary topics. It succinctly explains the science of global warming and the challenges it is causing, then offers a pathway to success.
Looking back from 2050, the author presents two futures, one if we do take affective individual and collective actions, the other if we do not. The final chapter of thirty pages is filled with extraordinary resources for those who want to explore the issues further, from the shift to renewable energy to dealing with plastics and climate refugees.

As the subtitle suggests, this book is indeed a Handbook for Intergenerational Actions to Solve the Climate Crisis

Wilford Welch has been exploring the driving forces impacting our world for over five decades: as a U.S. diplomat in Asia; as an economic development and business consultant in Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the U.S.; as the publisher of a world affairs magazine that appeared in 26 countries in six language editions; and as the leader of educational trips to numerous countries and cultures. Wilford has also been deeply involved in outdoor and environmental education, including being chair of the board of the NatureBridge Golden Gate campus in the Marin Headlands and the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). In 1994 Wilford led the support team on Mount Everest of NOLS instructors who removed 5,000 pounds of trash off the high camps and introduced the notion of Leave No Trace to Everest mountaineering. Over the past decades, Wilford has created and led several large conferences exploring the issues addressed in this book, including two Quest for Global Healing gatherings in Bali, Indonesia in 2004 and 2007 for over 1,000 participants from forty countries, and the Beyond Sustainability conference that took place at the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii in 2010. Wilford has a BA from Yale, a law degree from Berkeley, and a PMD degree from the Harvard Business School. He lives on a houseboat in Sausalito with his wife Carole Angermeir.

Matthew James - Collecting Evolution (Sausalito)

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 - 6:00pm

In 1905, eight men from the California Academy of Sciences set sail from San Francisco for a scientific collection expedition in the Galapagos Islands, and by the time they were finished in 1906, they had completed one of the most important expeditions in the history of both evolutionary and conservation science. These scientists collected over 78,000 specimens during their time on the islands, validating the work of Charles Darwin and laying the groundwork for foundational evolution texts like Darwin's Finches. Despite its significance, almost nothing has been written on this voyage, lost amongst discussion of Darwin's trip on the Beagle and the writing of David Lack. 

In Collecting Evolution, author Matthew James finally tells the story of the 1905 Galapagos expedition. James follows these eight young men aboard the Academy to the Galapagos and back, and reveals the reasons behind the groundbreaking success they had. A current Fellow of the California Academy of Sciences, James uses his access to unpublished writings and photographs to provide unprecedented insight into the expedition. We learn the voyagers' personal stories, and how, for all the scientific progress that was made, just as much intense personal drama unfolded on the trip. This book shares a watershed moment in scientific history, crossed with a maritime adventure. There are four tangential suicides and controversies over credit and fame. Collecting Evolution also explores the personal lives and scientific context that preceded this voyage, including what brought Darwin to the Galapagos on the Beagle voyage seventy years earlier. James discusses how these men thought of themselves as "collectors" before they thought of themselves as scientists, and the implications this had on their approach and their results. 

In the end, the voyage of the Academy proved to be crucial in the development of evolutionary science as we know it. It is the longest expedition in Galapagos history, and played a critical role in cementing Darwin's legacy. Collecting Evolution brings this extraordinary story of eight scientists and their journey to life.

Matthew James is a Fellow of the California Academy of Sciences, and Professor of Geology and Paleontology at Sonoma State University. He has been writing about the Galapagos in historical, scientific, and research capacities for over thirty years.

Left Coast Writers® Salon: Albert Flynn DeSilver - Writing as a Path to Awakening (Sausalito)

Monday, November 6, 2017 - 7:00pm

The best writers say their work seems to come from a source beyond the thinking mind. But how do we access that source? "We must first look inside ourselves and be willing to touch that raw emotional core at the heart of a deeper creativity," writes Albert Flynn DeSilver. In Writing as a Path to Awakening, this renowned poet, writer, and teacher shows you how to use meditation to cultivate true depth in your own writing--so your words reveal layers of profound insight that inspire and move your readers.

- How to approach writing and reading with a greater level of presence and immersion
- Engaging curiosity, playfulness, and spontaneity to keep your regular practice fresh
- Meditating with poetry to deeply embody the power of language
- How you can spark your imagination by connecting to the groundless source of creation
- The meditative approach to storytelling--how not being trapped in your story liberates your capacity to create
- Editing, rewriting, and the path of spiritual transformation

"Writing and meditation practice are a powerful pair, a dynamic duo," Albert Flynn DeSilver teaches. "Together they nourish and push, trigger and define, inform and inspire, enable, and energize. To engage in both practices fully is to activate a more complete, creative, and spiritual self." With a mixture of engaging storytelling and practical exercises, Writing as a Path to Awakening invites you on a yearlong journey of growth and discovery--to enhance your writing through the practice of meditation while using the creative process to accelerate your spiritual evolution.

Gayle Brandies & Andrea Jarrell - An Evening In Conversation (Sausalito)

Thursday, November 16, 2017 - 6:00pm

Gayle Brandeis's mother disappeared just after Gayle gave birth to her youngest child. Several days later, her body was found: she had hanged herself in the utility closet of a Pasadena parking garage.

In this searing, formally inventive memoir, Gayle describes the dissonance between being a new mother, a sweet-smelling infant at her chest, and a grieving daughter trying to piece together what happened, who her mother was, and all she had and hadn't understood about her.

Around the time of her suicide, Gayle's mother had been working on a documentary about the rare illnesses she thought ravaged her family: porphyria and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. In The Art of Misdiagnosis, taking its title from her mother's documentary, Gayle braids together her own narration of the charged weeks surrounding her mother's suicide, transcripts of her mother's documentary, research into delusional and factitious disorders, and Gayle's own experience with misdiagnosis and illness (both fabricated and real). Slowly and expertly, The Art of Misdiagnosis peels back the complicated layers of deception and complicity, of physical and mental illness in Gayle's family, to show how she and her mother had misdiagnosed one another.
Gayle's memoir is both a compelling search into the mystery of one's own family and a life-affirming story of the relief discovered through breaking familial and personal silences. Written by a gifted stylist, The Art of Misdiagnosis delves into the tangled mysteries of disease, mental illness, and suicide and comes out the other side with grace.

Gayle Brandeis is the author of Fruitflesh: Seeds of Inspiration for Women Who Write and the novels The Book of Dead Birds, which won the Bellwether Prize for Fiction of Social Engagement (judged by Toni Morrison, Maxine Hong Kingston, and contest founder Barbara Kingsolver), Self Storage, Delta Girls and My Life with the Lincolns, which received a Silver Nautilus Book Award and was chosen as a Read on Wisconsin pick, as well as a collection of poetry, The Selfless Bliss of the Body.

Loraine Van Tuyl - Amazon Wisdom Keeper (Sausalito)

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 - 6:00pm

With captivating lyricism, Amazon Wisdom Keeper transports us into the multicultural upbringing and transformation of Loraine Van Tuyl, a graduate psychology student and budding shamanic healer who's blindsided by startling visions, elusive drumming, and her inseverable mystical ties to the Amazon rainforest of her native Suriname. 

Is she in the wrong field, or did her childhood dreams, imaginary guides, and premonitions somehow prepare her for these challenges? Did Suriname's military coup and her family's uprooting move to the US rob her from all that she knew and loved at thirteen to help reveal her soul's purpose, or is she losing her mind by entertaining far-fetched questions and hunches that can't be answered or proven--like wondering if her perplexing life story is shedding light on the double-binds in her field on purpose, and suspecting that her soul's daunting blue print was plotted long before she was even born? Van Tuyl wrestles with these questions and more as she embarks upon her risky quest, enduring test upon test in search of her true self and calling while enrolled in a rigorous academic program that regards intuitive healing methods as unscientific--and even unethical.

Loraine Van Tuyl, PhD, CHT, holistic psychologist, shamanic healer, and Depth Hypnosis practitioner, is happiest when exploring how the natural world relates to our true nature in healing sessions, on the page, and in her journeys and dreams. She has guided visionaries, educators, holistic healers, artists, change-makers, and psychotherapists from the Native American Health Center, the UC Berkeley Counseling Center, the Space Clearing Society of the Sacred Stream, and at her private practice, the Sacred Healing Well. She is the author of Amazon Wisdom Keeper: A Psychologist’s Memoir of Spiritual Awakening, and is currently designing Awaken your Amazon Wisdom Goddess retreats for women who are ready to unbox, renature, and re-tree-t their denatured, fragmented selves (www.retreatsfornaturewisdomkeepers.com).
