Jordan E. Rosenfeld presents Forged in Grace ($15.39). At age 15, a horrific fire left Grace Jensen scarred and highly sensitive to the pain of anyone she touches. Thirteen years later, living with her hoarder mother and half-in-love with her former doctor, her long-absent best friend, Marly Kennet, returns to town and convinces Grace to make a leap-of-faith trip to Las Vegas. There, Grace discovers she doesn’t only feel others’ pain, she can heal it. This healing gift soon turns darker when the truth of Marly’s past and the fire that scarred Grace is revealed, pushing the boundaries of loyalty and exposing both women to danger.

Included is plotting a page-turning story structure, developing quintessential characters, creating vivid story worlds, and practicing the art of revision. Writers learn how to give and receive feedback in the spirit of generosity. The mission of this university-level workshop is to guide writers to publish their work. Included is research into publishing houses and literary agencies, and the art of writing cover/query letters, synopses and sample chapters that stand out from the crowd.

Testimonials:

What I most appreciate about Andrea is her optimism and support--a self-described "cheerleader." She has been like a college professor giving me valuable lessons in picture book creation. Her honesty and writing exercises helped me find my voice. It's been an incredible journey with Andrea as my story midwife!

Based on the life of an Iranian princess, this is “a fine historical novel, a story of intrigue and action…its scheming and parricide rival A Game of Thrones…and may remind you of Mary Renault’s stunning The Persian Boy” (San Francisco Chronicle).

Iran in 1576 is a place of wealth and dazzling beauty. But when the Shah dies without having named an heir, the court is thrown into tumult. Princess Pari, the Shah’s daughter and protégée, knows more about the inner workings of the state than almost anyone, but her maneuvers to instill order after her father’s sudden death incite resentment and dissent. Pari and her closest adviser, Javaher, a eunuch able to navigate the harem as well as the world beyond the palace walls, possess an incredible tapestry of secrets that explode in a power struggle of epic proportions.

Legendary women—from Anne Boleyn to Queen Elizabeth I to Mary, Queen of Scots—changed the course of history in the royal courts of England. While they are celebrated, few people know of the powerful and charismatic women in the Muslim world. Based loosely on Princess Pari Khan Khanoom, Equal of the Sun ($17.00) is a riveting story of political intrigue that brings one extraordinary woman to light. Anita Amirrezvani is a master storyteller, and her lustrous prose brings to life this rich and labyrinthine world with a stunning cast of characters—passionate and brave men and women who defy or embrace their destiny in a Machiavellian game played by those who lust for power and will do anything to attain it.

Anita Amirrezvani is the author of the novel The Blood of Flowers which has been published in more than twenty-five languages and was longlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction. She teaches at the California College of the Arts and Sonoma State University.

Imagine being able to fly. Walk through walls. Shape-shift. Breathe underwater. Conjure loved ones or total strangers out of thin air. Imagine experiencing your nighttime dreams with the same awareness you possess right now fully functioning memory, imagination, and self-awareness. Imagine being able to use this power to be more creative, solve problems, and discover a deep sense of well-being.

This is lucid dreaming the ability to know you are dreaming while you are in a dream, and then consciously explore and change the elements of the dream. A Field Guide to Lucid Dreaming ($12.95), with its evocative retro illustrations, shows exactly how to do it. Written by Thomas Peisel, an experienced lucid dreamers, this manual for the dream world takes the reader from step one learning how to reconnect with his or her dreams through the myriad possibilities of what can happen once the dreamer is lucid and an accomplished oneironaut (a word that comes from the Greek oneira, meaning dreams, and nautis, meaning sailor).

Mitchell S. Jackson grew up black in a neglected neighborhood in America’s whitest city, Portland, Oregon. In the ’90s, those streets and beyond had fallen under the shadow of crack cocaine and its familiar mayhem. In his commanding autobiographical novel, Mitchell writes what it was to come of age in that time and place, with a break-out voice that’s nothing less than extraordinary.

The Residue Years ($24.00) switches between the perspectives of a young man, Champ, and his mother, Grace. Grace is just out of a drug treatment program, trying to stay clean and get her kids back. Champ is trying to do right by his mom and younger brothers, and dreams of reclaiming the only home he and his family have ever shared. But selling crack is the only sure way he knows to achieve his dream. In this world of few options and little opportunity, where love is your strength and your weakness, this family fights for family and against what tears one apart.

Start: 7:00 pm

Introduced by Daniel Handler!

The stories in Tom Barbash's evocative and often darkly funny collection explore the myriad ways we try to connect to one another and to the sometimes cruel world around us. The newly single mother in "The Break" interferes with her son's love life over his Christmas vacation from college. The anxious young man in "Balloon Night" persists in hosting his and his wife's annual watch-the-Macy's-Thanksgiving-Day-Parade-floats-be-inflated party, while trying to keep the myth of his marriage equally afloat. "Somebody's Son," tells the story of a young man guiltily conning an elderly couple out of their home in the Adirondacks, and the young narrator in "The Women" watches his widowed father become the toast of Manhattan's mid-life dating scene, as he struggles to find his own footing.

The characters in Stay Up with Me ($22.99) find new truths when the old ones have given out or shifted course. In the tradition of classic story writer like John Cheever and Tobias Wolff, Barbash laces his narratives with sharp humor, psychological acuity, and pathos, creating deeply resonant and engaging stories that pierce the heart and linger in the imagination.

Tom Barbash is the author of the award-winning novel, The Last Good Chance, and the nonfiction book, On Top of the World: Cantor Fitzgerald, Howard Lutnick, and 9/11: A Story of Loss and Renewal, which was a New York Times bestseller. His stories and articles have been published in Tin House, McSweeney's, VQR, and other publications, and have been performed on National Public Radio for their Selected Shorts Series. He currently teaches in the MFA program at California College of the Arts.

All it takes is a quarter to change pediatric psychiatrist Dr. Owen Lerner’s life. When the coin he’s feeding into a parking meter is struck by lightning, Lerner survives, except that now all he wants to do is barbecue. The bolt of lightning that lifts Lerner into the air sends the entire Lerner clan into free fall. Mary Kay Zuravleff depicts family-on-family pain with generosity and devastating humor as she explores how much we are each allowed to change within a family—and without. Man Alive! ($27.00) captures Owen and Toni Lerner and their nearly grown children so vividly you’ll be looking over your shoulder to make sure the author hasn’t been watching your own family in action.

Mary Kay Zuravleff is also the author of The Bowl Is Already Broken, which The New York Times praised as “a tart, affectionate satire of the museum world’s bickering and scheming,” and The Frequency of Souls, which the Chicago Tribune deemed “a beguiling and wildly inventive first novel.” Honors for her work include the American Academy’s Rosenthal Award and the James Jones First Novel Award, and she has been nominated for the Orange Prize. She lives in Washington, D.C., where she serves on the board of the PEN/Faulkner Foundation and is a cofounder of the D.C. Women Writers Group.

In Smarty Marty's Got Game ($17.95), Amy Gutierrez ("Amy G" to San Francisco Giants fans) tells the inspiring story of older sister Marty, who teaches the game (and love) of baseball to her younger brother Mikey. Marty has always loved baseball and is known as "Smarty Marty" to her friends at school because she knows more about baseball than most grown-up baseball fans.

However, her younger brother, Mikey, couldn't be bothered and just doesn't get it...UNTIL, Marty and Mikey attend a real baseball game, where Marty gradually teaches Mikey the ins and outs of baseball, the lingo, strategy, and more, often using real-life examples so Mikey can better understand. Before long, Mikey is no longer solely interested in the salted pretzels and garlic fries of the ballpark but is soon engrossed in the game and cheering along with his older sister.

Amy G's story appeals to both boys and girls and also defies the strong gender stereotypes that Amy herself has battled in her 16-year career as a sports journalist and reporter.

Amy Gutierrez, a Bay Area native is entering her 16th year in the broadcasting industry and embarking upon her fourth season as the San Francisco Giants in-game reporter. She also serves as a contributing reporter for G-Mag, Giants Pregame Live and Giants Postgame Live.

"To have great poets," Walt Whitman said, "There must be great audiences too." What makes a poem worth reading? This group looks at famous poets from several centuries and from several literatures. Widely-published local poet and author John Hart co-edits the venerable all-poetry journal Blue Unicorn, now in its 36th year.

Like so many of us, award-winning writer Katy Butler always assumed her aging parents would experience healthy, active retire­ments before dying peacefully at home. Then her father suffered a stroke that left him incapable of easily finishing a sentence or showering without assistance. Her mother was thrust into full-time caregiving, and Katy became one of the 24 mil­lion Americans who help care for aging parents. In an effort to correct a minor and non–life threatening heart arrhythmia, doctors outfitted her father with a pacemaker. The device kept his heart beating but did nothing to prevent his slide into dementia, incontinence, near-muteness, and misery. After several years, he asked his wife for help, telling her, “I am living too long.”

Mother and daughter faced a series of wrench­ing moral questions: When does death cease being a curse and become a blessing? Where is the line between saving life and prolonging a dying? When is the right time to say to a doctor, “Let my loved one go”?

When doctors refused to disable the pace­maker, sentencing her father to a protracted and agonizing death, Katy set out to understand why. Her quest had barely begun when her mother faced her own illness, rebelled against her doctors, refused open-heart surgery, and instead met death head-on. Knocking on Heaven’s Door ($25.00), a revolution­ary blend of memoir and investigative reporting, is the fruit of the Butler family’s journey.

Why? Why Not? ($35.00) is a novel novel, a diary, a high-flying history, an academic adult comic book with visions of utopia, dystopia and myopia. Illusions, confusions, and conclusions form the thirty-six plays, each contained on a single page. The setting for each play is a piece of paper. Characters are listed. Scene and characters are drawn on the top half of the page; five columns of lines of type, newspaper style, are arranged below. The dialogue is minimal, a poetic shorthand determined by the number of letterforms per line, a text-message for today's limited attention spans, mostly in rhyme.

Barbara Solomon is a graphic designer, landscape architect, writer, and artist. Her innovative logo design and building graphics for The Sea Ranch in Northern California brought her fame in the 1960s as the inventor of supergraphics. Her first book, Green Architecture and the Agrarian Garden, reinvigorated the view of the classical garden by creating a sophisticated pictorial language. In Good Mourning California, Solomon presented a provocative and acerbic look at the social topology of the Golden State.

The Ayurvedic Vegan Kitchen ($19.95) is a celebration of the benefits of ayurveda and a vegan diet. Certified ayurvedic practitioner, Talya Lutzker opens a new world of healing that previously had been off limits to vegans and anyone who needs to avoid dairy.

Ayurveda, a holistic healing system developed in ancient India, organizes the elements of ether, air, fire, water, and earth into three body types or doshas. Each individual's dominant dosha needs to be balanced on a regular basis. Dairy products are important foods in conventional ayurveda; however, for every milk-based food that ayurvedic healers revere, Talya has substituted an equally effective whole-food vegan alternative. Over 120 delicious recipes provide healing flavors and harmony to the mind and spirit. Easy-to-follow symbols on each recipe page show how that recipe can balance the body's constitution. This cookbook is the perfect marriage of a healing diet and exquisite taste.

Talya Lutzker is a certified practitioner in Ayurvedic healing and massage, a yoga teacher and professional chef, and the founder of Talya’s Kitchen, an organic, nutrition-focused catering business. She has studied with DeAnna Batdorff, founder of the dhyana Center of Health Sciences in Sebastopol, California, and has a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies.
