From the events coordinator of San Francisco's amazing Book Passage comes Pieces of My Mother, a provocative memoir that explores the complex emotional landscape of a child abandoned by her mother

One summer, Melissa Cistaro's mother drove off without a word. Devastated, Melissa and her brothers were left to pick up the pieces, wondering why their mother abandoned them. Decades later, Melissa finds herself in Olympia, Washington with her dying mother and just days to find out what happened that summer and confront the fear she could do the same to her kids. She never expects to stumble on a cache of letters her mother wrote but never sent her, which could hold the answers she seeks. Haunting yet ultimately uplifting, Pieces of My Mother reveals how our parents' choices impact our own and how we can survive those to forge our own paths.

Melissa Cistaro is an events coordinator at Book Passage, the legendary San Francisco Bay Area independent bookstore. A writer and mother, she has been published in numerous literary journals, as well as in two anthologies alongside Anne Larnott, Jane Smiley, and others. She lives in San Francisco.

Spare Parts: Four Undocumented Teenagers, One Ugly Robot, and the Battle for the American Dream is the story of four Latino teenagers, who in 2004, arrived at the Marine Advanced Technology Education Robotics Competition at the University of California, Santa Barbara. They were born in Mexico but raised in Phoenix, Arizona, where they attended an underfunded public high school. No one had ever suggested to Oscar, Cristian, Luis, or Lorenzo that they might amount to much--but two inspiring science teachers had convinced these impoverished, undocumented kids from the desert to build an underwater robot.Their robot wasn't pretty, especially compared to those of the competition. They were going up against some of the best collegiate engineers in the country, including a team from MIT backed by a $10,000 grant from ExxonMobil. The Phoenix teenagers had scraped together less than $1,000 and built their robot out of scavenged parts. This was never a level competition--and yet, against all odds . . . they won!

Joshua Davis is a contributing editor at Wired, and cofounder of Epic magazine. In 2014, he was nominated for a National Magazine Award for feature writing. The movie Spare Parts is based on his reporting. He lives in San Francisco, California.

Patti Smith - M Train

Wednesday, November 18, 2015 - 7:00pm

Please note: ticket sales are now closed. To inquire about waitlist availability, please call (415) 927-0960 x 1.

In conversation with Dave Eggers

Angelico Hall, Dominican University of California
Tickets: $35 (includes signed copy of M Train)

From the National Book Award winning author of Just Kids an unforgettable odyssey of a legendary artist, told through the prism of the cafes and haunts she has worked in around the world. It is a book Patti Smith has described as a roadmap to my life. M Train begins in the tiny Greenwich Village cafe where Smith goes every morning for black coffee, ruminates on the world as it is and the world as it was, and writes in her notebook. Through prose that shifts fluidly between dreams and reality, past and present, and across a landscape of creative aspirations and inspirations, we travel to Frida Kahlo's Casa Azul in Mexico; to a meeting of an Arctic explorer's society in Berlin; to a ramshackle seaside bungalow in New York's Far Rockaway that Smith acquires just before Hurricane Sandy hits; and to the graves of Genet, Plath, Rimbaud, and Mishima. Woven throughout are reflections on the writer's craft and on artistic creation. Here, too, are singular memories of Smith's life in Michigan and the irremediable loss of her husband, Fred Sonic Smith. Braiding despair with hope and consolation, illustrated with her signature Polaroids, "M Train" is a meditation on travel, detective shows, literature, and coffee. It is a powerful, deeply moving book by one of the most remarkable multiplatform artists at work today.

Patti Smith is a writer, performer, and visual artist. She gained recognition in the 1970s for her revolutionary mergence of poetry and rock. Her seminal album Horses, bearing Robert Mapplethorpe's renowned photograph, has been hailed as one of the top 100 albums of all time. Her books include Witt, Babel, Woolgathering, The Coral Sea, and Auguries of Innocence. In 2005, the French Ministry of Culture awarded Smith the prestigious title of Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres, the highest honor awarded to an artist by the French Republic. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. Smith married the late Fred Sonic Smith in Detroit in 1980. They had a son, Jackson, and a daughter, Jesse. Smith resides in New York City.

Dave Eggers is the bestselling author of seven books, including A Hologram for the King, a finalist for the National Book Award; Zeitoun, winner of the American Book Award and Dayton Literary Peace Prize; and What Is the What, which was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and won France's Prix Medici.

Brian Selznick - The Marvels

Thursday, October 29, 2015 - 7:00pm

Presented by Book Passage and Throckmorton Theatre

Throckmorton Theatre, Mill Valley
Tickets: $38 (includes signed book)

Join Brian Selznick, who will discuss his newest book, The Marvels, followed by a Q & A session with the audience.  An autographed copy of the book is included with your admission.   Don’t miss this fascinating and insightful evening with this award-winning author and illustrator!

Caldecott Award winner and bookmaking trailblazer Brian Selznick once again plays with the form he invented and delivers a moving and mesmerizing adventure about the power of story. Two seemingly unrelated stories -- one in words, the other in pictures -- come together with spellbinding synergy! The illustrated story begins in 1766 with Billy Marvel, the lone survivor of a shipwreck, and charts the adventures of his family of actors over five generations. The prose story opens in 1990 and follows Joseph, who has run away from school to an estranged uncle's puzzling house in London, where he, along with the reader, must piece together many mysteries. How the picture and word stories intersect will leave readers marveling over Selznick's storytelling prowess. Filled with mystery, vibrant characters, surprise twists, and heartrending beauty, and featuring Selznick's most arresting art to date, The Marvels is a moving tribute to the power of story.

Brian Selznick is the Caldecott award-winning author and illustrator of The New York Times bestsellers The Invention of Hugo Cabret and Wonderstruck. He is also the illustrator of many celebrated picture books and novels, among them Caldecott Honor Winner The Dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins by Barbara Kerley, and Sibert Honor Winner When Marian Sang by Pam Muñoz Ryan. Brian has previously worked as a set designer and a puppeteer.

Dining with Writers: Cat Cora - Cooking As Fast As I Can

Tickets: $95 (Includes meal and signed book)

Please note: online ticket sales have closed. To inquire about ticket availability, please call Karen West at (415) 518-0338.

Before she became a celebrated chef, Cathy Cora was just a girl from Jackson, Mississippi, where days were slow and every meal was made from scratch. Her passion for the kitchen started in her home, where she spent her days internalizing the dishes that would form the cornerstone of her cooking philosophy incorporating her Greek heritage and Southern upbringing from crispy fried chicken and honey-drenched biscuits to spanakopita. But outside the kitchen, Cat's life was volatile. In Cooking as Fast as I Can: A Chef's Story of Family, Food and Forgiveness, Cat Cora reveals, for the first time, coming-of-age experiences from early childhood sexual abuse to the realities of life as a lesbian in the deep South. She shares how she found her passion in the kitchen and went on to attend the prestigious Culinary Institute of America and apprentice under Michelin star chefs in France. After her big break as a co-host on the Food Network's Melting Pot, Cat broke barriers by becoming the first-ever female Iron Chef. Cora writes movingly about how she found courage and redemption in the dark truths of her past and about how she found solace in the kitchen and work, how her passion for cooking helped her to overcome hardships and  find happiness at home as a wife and a mother to four boys. Above all, this is an utterly engrossing story about the grit and grace it takes to achieve your dreams.

Cat Cora grew up in Jackson, Mississippi, and attended the Culinary Institute of America and worked in New York City before travelling overseas to apprentice in Europe with world-renowned French chefs Georges Blanc and Roger VergE. She settled in Napa Valley in her first job as a chef. After The Food Network discovered her in 1999, she went on to become the first female Iron Chef for the Network. She is the founder of the charitable organization Chefs for Humanity, a grassroots organization that mobilizes chefs to lend their skills to communities in need, and she has built a brand that includes two food lines, cookware a shoe line, cookbooks and restaurants, in Orlando, Costa Mesa, Houston, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Atlanta, and Singapore. She lives in Santa Barbara with her wife and four sons.

Ted Koppel - Lights Out

Monday, November 2, 2015 - 7:00pm

In conversation with Brian Copeland

Angelico Hall, Dominican University of CA

Please note: online ticket sales are now closed. Please call (415) 927-0960 x 1 to inquire about ticket availability.

In this tour de force of investigative reporting, Ted Koppel reveals that a major cyberattack on America's power grid is not only possible but likely and that the United States is shockingly unprepared.  A well-designed attack on just one of the nation's three electric power grids could cripple much of our infrastructure and in the age of cyberwarfare, a laptop has become the only necessary weapon. Several nations hostile to the United States could launch such an assault at any time. In fact, as a former chief scientist of the NSA reveals, China and Russia have already penetrated the grid and a cybersecurity advisor to President Obama believes that independent actors from hacktivists to terrorists have the capability as well. As Koppel makes clear, the federal government, while well prepared for natural disasters, has no plan for the aftermath of an attack on the power grid. In the absence of a government plan, some individuals and communities have taken matters into their own hands. However the critical question is how will ordinary civilians survive? With urgency and authority, Lights Out: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath examines a threat unique to our time and evaluates potential ways to prepare for a catastrophe that is all but inevitable.

Ted Koppel, a thirty-seven-year veteran of ABC News, has been anchor of Nightline since March 1980. He has won every significant television award, including thirty-two Emmys, six Peabodys, nine Overseas Press Club awards, two George Polk Awards, and two Sigma Delta Chi Awards. Before creating Nightline, he was a foreign, domestic, and war correspondent and bureau chief for ABC, and its chief diplomatic correspondent. He is the author, with Marvin Kalb, of In the National Interest. He lives with his wife in Maryland.

Brian Copeland is an American actor, comedian, radio talk show host, playwright and author based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Copeland has been the opening act for artists such as Ray Charles, Natalie Cole, Aretha Franklin and Ringo Starr.
