Featured Speakers 

..........................................................................................................................

Stuart Brioza & Nicole Krasinski (State Bird Provisions)
Few restaurants have taken the nation by storm like San Francisco’s Michelin-starred State Bird Provisions. Inspired by the exciting diversity of passed hors d’oeuvres, chef-owners Brioza and Kasinski use dim sum style carts to offer guests small but finely crafted dishes that surprise and delight. Now, in their highly anticipated State Bird Provisions: A Cookbook, they share recipes for their most popular dishes alongside stunning photography, and inspire readers and home cooks to craft an unforgettable meal that excites all of the senses.

..........................................................................................................................

A sociologist and senior fellow at UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center, Dr. Carter is the author of The Sweet Spot: How to Find Your Groove at Work and Home and Raising Happiness. A sought-after keynote speaker, she combines scientific research and practical application, offering audiences not only a way to cope, but a way to truly thrive. The writer of a frequently syndicated, award-winning blog, she has appeared on The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, PBS, NPR, and BBC Radio.

Lee Child
Hot off the heels of last fall’s instant hit, Night School, and the big screen adaptation of Never Go Back, #1 international bestseller Child returns with The Midnight Line, the 22nd novel in the Jack Reacher thriller series. A former presentation director with the UK’s Granada Television, his debut, Killing Floor, won both the Anthony and the Barry awards for “Best First Mystery”, and The Enemy won both the Barry and the Nero awards for “Best Novel”. 2012 film Jack Reacher was a box office smash based on Child’s 9th novel, One Shot, starring Tom Cruise. The Associated Press writes, “Child has created an iconic character that other thriller writers try to emulate, but don’t come close to matching”.

..........................................................................................................................

Daniel Handler & Lisa Brown
Bestselling author of The Basic Eight, Why We Broke Up, and We Are Pirates, Handler is also known as Lemony Snicket, author of the book series All the Wrong Questions and A Series of Unfortunate Events, which has been adapted into an Academy Award-winning film and television series.

Her essays have appeared in dozens of publications and numerous collections. She has been a frequent performer with The Moth, a fellow of the MacDowell Colony and Yaddo, and founder of the Lake Atitlan Writers’ Workshop. This fall, her new memoir, The Best of Us, explores love and loss with her late husband, Jim Barringer, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer just after their one-year anniversary.

..........................................................................................................................

New York Times bestselling author of The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane, See’s novels include Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Peony in Love, Shanghai Girls, China Dolls, and Dreams of Joy, which debuted at #1. Her On Gold Mountain tells the story of her Chinese American family’s settlement in Los Angeles.

Matthew Weiner - Heather, the Totality (San Rafael)

Tuesday, November 14, 2017 - 7:30pm

In conversation with Michael Krasny
Hoytt Theater, Osher Marin JCC
Tickets: $45 (one ticket & one signed book); $65 (two tickets & one signed book)

This event is in association with the Osher Marin JCC

A collision course between a privileged family and a dangerous young man, Heather, the Totality is a chilling debut novel by Matthew Weiner.

"This short novel of upper-crust anomie and class-divide obsession is a scorcher! It's the classic noir construction: the short walk off the long ledge and the plummet to an indifferent Hell. Matthew Weiner demonically delivers the goods! Read this book in one gasping breath."—James Ellroy, author of L.A. Confidential and Perfidia

"Heather, The Totality is a tour de force of control, tone and razor-slash insight. In its clear-eyed anatomist's gaze and its remarkable combination of empathy and pitilessness I hear echoes of Flaubert and Richard Yates, with a deeply twisted twist of Muriel Spark at her darkest. I could not put it down." —Michael Chabon, author of Moonglow

"Heather, The Totality gripped me at once and had me spellbound. It was partly the absolute certainty of the world he was describing, the sense that beyond these brilliantly chosen details there was a wealth of similarly truthful social and psychological perception unstated. And partly the slightly fastidious form, the sound of a voice a hair's breadth away from affectation, but so firmly where it was that there was no question of turning away and not hearing what was going to come next. Then there was the ice-cold mercilessness, of a kind that reminded me (oddly, I suppose, but there it was) of Evelyn Waugh."—Philip Pullman, author of His Dark Materials

"I cringed and shuddered my way through this short, daring novel to its terrible inevitable end. Each neat, measured paragraph carpaccios its characters to get to the book's heart - one of Boschian self-cannibalising isolation. A stunning novel. Heather, The Totality blew me away."—Nick Cave

Matthew Weiner has been entertaining audiences for two decades, most recently as writer, creator, executive producer and director of Mad Men, one of television's most honored series. He also worked as a writer and executive producer on The Sopranos

Cooks with Books: Daniel Patterson and Mandy Aftel - The Art of Flavor (San Francisco)

Saturday, December 9, 2017 - 12:30pm

Tickets: $120 per person (includes meal & book)
Alta, San Francisco

Two masters of composition - a chef and a perfumer - present a revolutionary new approach to creating delicious food.

Michelin two-star chef Daniel Patterson and celebrated natural perfumer Mandy Aftel are experts at orchestrating ingredients. Yet in a world awash in cooking shows and food blogs, they noticed, home cooks get little guidance in the art of flavor. In this trailblazing guide, they share the secrets to making the most of your ingredients via an indispensable set of tools and principles:

  • The Four Rules for creating flavor
  • A Flavor Compass that points the way to transformative combinations
  • "Locking," "burying," and other aspects of cooking alchemy
  • The flavor-heightening effects of cooking methods
  • The Seven Dials that let you fine-tune a dish

With more than eighty recipes that demonstrate each concept and put it into practice, The Art of Flavor is food for the imagination that will help cooks at any level to become flavor virtuosos.

Daniel Patterson founded San Francisco's Michelin two-star Coi and several other Bay Area restaurants; most recently, he cofounded the acclaimed "revolutionary fast food" venture LocoL. His awards include Food & Wine's Best New Chef and a James Beard Award for Best Chef in the West. Patterson is the author of two previous books, and his essays have appeared in The New York Times, Food & Wine, Financial Times, San Francisco Magazine, and Lucky Peach.

Mandy Aftel is an internationally known artisan perfumer and award-winning author, most recently of Fragrant: The Secret Life of Scent. She has participated in many exhibitions, panels, and conferences on scent and food, and regularly collaborates with chefs and mixologists. She and her work have been featured in The New York Times, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Gourmet, Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, O, The Oprah Magazine, and Elle, on CNN, and in countless blogs. Aftel lives in Berkeley, California.

Event tickets include the meal, wine, tip, tax, and a signed copy of the book.

#1 bestselling author John Green returns with his first new novel since The Fault in Our Stars

Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there's a hundred thousand dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett's son, Davis.

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza's story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.

John Green is the award-winning, #1 bestselling author of Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, Will Grayson, Will Grayson (with David Levithan), and The Fault in Our Stars. His many accolades include the Printz Medal, a Printz Honor, and the Edgar Award. John has twice been a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize and was selected by TIME magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. With his brother, Hank, John is one half of the Vlogbrothers and co-created the online educational series CrashCourse. You can join the millions who follow him on Twitter @johngreen and Instagram @johngreenwritesbooks or visit him online at johngreenbooks.com. John lives with his family in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Curly hot dogs, spinach with croutons, sushi salmon cakes, skillet bread and homemade butter, raspberry cake: These recipes will become irresistible new classics for kids. In A Grandfather's Lessons, Jacques also imparts lessons in kitchen etiquette, from how to set a table to how to fold a napkin properly—even how to load a dishwasher. And perhaps the most important lesson of all: that the best meals are the ones shared at home with family.

The winner of sixteen James Beard Awards and author of twenty-nine cookbooks, including Jacques Pépin Heart & Soul in the Kitchen and Essential Pépin, Jacques Pépin has starred in twelve acclaimed PBS cooking series. He was awarded France's highest distinction, the Legion of Honor.

Dan Rather - What Unites Us (San Rafael)

Wednesday, December 6, 2017 - 7:00pm

In conversation with co-author Elliot Kirschner

Angelico Hall, Dominican University of California
Tickets: $40 (includes signed book)

*This event is now sold out. Please call the store at (415) 927-0960 ext. 1 for waitlist availability.*  

"I find myself thinking deeply about what it means to love America, as I surely do."

At a moment of crisis over our national identity, Dan Rather has been reflecting—and writing passionately almost every day on social media—about the world we live in, what our core ideals have been and should be, and what it means to be an American. Now, in a collection of wholly original essays, the venerated television journalist celebrates our shared values and what matters most in our great country, and shows us what patriotism looks like. Writing about the institutions that sustain us, such as public libraries, public schools, and national parks; the values that have transformed us, such as the struggle for civil rights; and the drive toward science and innovation that has made the United States great, Rather will bring to bear his decades of experience on the frontlines of the world's biggest stories, and offer readers a way forward.

After a career spent as reporter and anchor for CBS News, where he interviewed every living President since Eisenhower and was on the ground for every major event, from the assassination of John F. Kennedy to Watergate to 9/11, Rather has in the last year also become a hugely popular voice of reason on social media, with more than two million Facebook followers and an engaged new audience who help to make many of his posts go viral. With his famously plainspoken voice and a fundamental sense of hope, Dan Rather has written the book to inspire conversation and listening, and to remind us all how we are ultimately united.

What Unites Us will be a must-read for everyone you know who is engaged in the urgent national conversation right now—and interested in our place in history going forward.

With a storied career that has spanned more than six decades, Dan Rather has earned his place as one of the world's best-known journalists. He has interviewed every president since Eisenhower and, over that time, personally covered almost every important dateline in the United States and around the world. Rather joined CBS News in 1962. He quickly rose through the ranks, and in 1981 he assumed the position of Anchor and Managing Editor of the CBS Evening News—a post he held for twenty-four years. His reporting across the network helped turn 60 Minutes into an institution, launched 48 Hours as an innovative news magazine program, and shaped countless specials and documentaries. Upon leaving CBS, Rather returned to the in-depth reporting he always loved, creating the Emmy Award winning Dan Rather Reports on HDNet. Now, building upon that foundation, he is president and CEO of News and Guts, an independent production company he founded that specializes in high-quality nonfiction content across a range of traditional and digital distribution channels.
