Join Book Passage and McSweeney's McMullens for afternoon filled with awesome books for kids!
 
First up is Recipe ($17.95), by Angela and Michaelanne Petrella. Are they sisters, you ask? They are! Step aside, Mother—it's Kristen's turn to pick the recipe and make the dinner! There's just one teensy problem: Kristen's imagination is far more developed than her cooking skills. With ingredients ranging from 400 hot dogs and 20 bags of marshmallows to a sweatshirt and a water pistol, Recipe is the laugh-out-loud chronicle of just about everything that can go wrong in a kitchen. 
 
Second up is Crabtree ($17.95), by Jon and Tucker Nichols. Are they brothers? They are! You seem skeptical, but I assure you it is true. Alfred Crabtree has lost his false teeth. But don’t worry, he’ll find them if he can just get his things organized! Alfred’s world is cluttered with surprising objects. Some are very uncommon, and some are probably not where they ought to be. Join Alfred on a romp through his far too many possessions and you’ll end up learning more about him than he knows about himself. And maybe he’ll find his teeth in all that stuff!

Enter to win a FREE vacation in Vermont by signing up for the Mud Season West Coast Book Tour raffle! Enter to win vouchers for a romantic "Vermonty" four-night stay at the Equinox Spa and Resort in Manchester, VT (and lots more!).

In self-deprecating and hilarious fashion, Mud Season ($23.95) chronicles Ellen Stimson's transition from city life to rickety Vermont farmhouse. When she decides she wants to own and operate the old-fashioned village store in idyllic Dorset, pop. 2,036, one of the oldest continually operating country stores in the country, she learns the hard way that "improvements" are not always welcomed warmly by folks who like things just fine the way they'd always been. She dreams of patrons streaming in for fresh-made sandwiches and an old-timey candy counter, but she learns they're boycotting the store. Why? "The bread," they tell her, "you moved the bread from where it used to be." Can the citified newcomer turn the tide of mistrust before she ruins the business altogether?

Follow the author to her wit's end and back, through her full immersion into rural life--swapping high heels for muck boots; raising chickens and sheep; fighting off skunks, foxes, and bears; and making a few friends and allies in a tiny town steeped in history, local tradition, and that dyed-in-the-wool Vermont "character."

Ellen Stimson lives in a beautiful old farmhouse nestled in a high valley in the mountains of Vermont with her wild pack of children,not-so-wild husband, and completely civilized group of chickens, sheep, dogs, and cats. She has a not-at-all-fashionable collection of muck boots. This is her first book.

Start: 4:00 pm

Over six hundred years ago, in an enclosure attached to a church in Norwich, England, a woman known only as Julian wrote a book detailing sixteen mystical encounters with Christ on the cross. At the time few women could read or write, and the writing or teaching of theology by “unlettered” lay people in the vernacular was strictly forbidden. Today, however, Julian’s Revelations are studied along with Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. Her theological insights and spiritual direction are compared to those of St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross. The twentieth century monk Thomas Merton called her “one of the most wonderful of Christian voices.”

But who was Julian? While her writings have increased greatly in popularity, the woman herself has remained a mystery. In Julian’s Gospel: Illuminating the Life & Revelations of Julian of Norwich ($38.00), Veronica Mary Rolf draws on extensive research and interpretation to reconstruct Julian’s life and times. First, Rolf introduces the world of fourteenth century Norwich, and the political, religious, and cultural context: the Hundred Years’ War, the Great Plague, the Peasants’ Revolt, the Papal Schism, and the hugely popular Corpus Christi mystery plays. Rolf traces Julian’s likely ancestry, recreating her childhood, education, and adulthood as wife, mother, widow, and finally, enclosed anchoress. Then, Rolf interprets the Revelations themselves, in a new and highly accessible translation from the Middle English that includes a complete chapter-by-chapter spiritual companion to the texts.

Unique among studies of Julian of Norwich, this work creates a strong, dramatic arc for the Revelations, interweaving Julian’s personal sufferings and burning theological questions with her visionary experiences, producing a compelling spiritual biography of one of Christianity’s most extraordinary voices.

An independent scholar of medieval studies and comparative literature, Veronica Mary Rolf was educated at Columbia University, New York. She has spent her life in the professional theatre as a performer and playwright, including more than two decades training and directing actors as a Master Teacher of Dramatic Arts at the Stella Adler Studio (New York City), The Actors’ Centre (London), Teatro Andamio ’90 (Buenos Aires) and Berkeley Repertory Theatre (California). Currently, she presents a lecture series, Mornings with Julian of Norwich, and writes frequently on her website: JuliansVoice.com.

The Pittsburgh Steelers of the 1970s won an unprecedented and unmatched four Super Bowls in six years. A dozen of those Steelers players, coaches, and executives have been inducted into the Hall of Fame, and three decades later their names echo in popular memory: Mean Joe Greene, Terry Bradshaw, Franco Harris, Mike Webster, Jack Lambert, Lynn Swann, and John Stallworth. In ways exhilarating and heartbreaking, they define not only the brotherhood of sports but those elements of the game that engage tens of millions of Americans: its artistry and its brutality. In 1981, when the Steelers failed to make the playoffs for the first time in nine years, acclaimed author Gary M. Pomerantz, then a sportswriter for the Washington Post, interviewed them in training camp. At that time, Pomerantz asked himself, "What will life be like for these guys when they're sixty?" Without knowing it, he began writing Their Life's Work:The Brotherhood of the 1970s Pittsburgh Steelers, Then and Now ($26.99).

Intimate, poignant, and thrilling, Their Life's Work does for football what Roger Kahn's The Boys of Summer did for baseball. It is a story of victory, fortitude, renown, and, above all, the brotherhood of players who said they'd do it again—all of it. 

Gary M. Pomerantz is a nonfiction author and journalist and has served the past seven years as a visiting lecturer in the Department of Communication at Stanford University. His work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Washington Post. Pomerantz has written four books, including the New York Times Notable Book of the Year, Where Peachtree Meets Sweet Auburn (1996).

Coi Restaurant, San Francisco

This event is a book launch and reception to celebrate the cookbook Coi: Stories and Recipe. Rather than a sit down dinner, Patterson is preparing a sampling of his recipes, served with wine.

Daniel Patterson is the head chef/owner of Coi (pronounced "Kwa"), a two Michelin star restaurant in San Francisco. At Coi, Patterson mixes modern culinary techniques with local, wild, and cultivated ingredients to create original dishes that speak of place, memory, and emotion. His approach has earned him a worldwide reputation as pioneer of a new Californian cuisine. Also renowned for his food writing, Patterson has been published in The New York Times, Food & Wine, and Lucky Peach. Now, in his highly anticipated new book Coi: Stories and Recipes, Patterson shares a personal account of the restaurant, its dishes, and his own unique philosophy on food and cooking. Patterson begins by examining his relationship with California after his arrival from the East Coast and as he began to feel more at home throughout the years. He then takes readers into the Coi kitchen with 70 of the restaurant's original dishes, including Chilled Spice Ratatouille Soup; Carrots Roasted in Coffee Beans; Monterey Bay Abalone with Nettle-Dandelion Salsa Verde; Inverted Cherry Tomato Tart; and Lime Marshmallow with Coal-Toasted Meringue. The dishes are explained through a series of personal essays and narrative recipes, offering insight into Patterson's life, philosophy, and inspirations.

Daniel Patterson was born in Massachusetts and moved to California in 1989, where he now has three restaurants: Coi (2006) in San Francisco, and Plum (2010) and Haven (2011) in Oakland. He is the winner of many awards, including "Best New Chef" by Food & Wine Magazine and "Chef of the Year" by San Francisco Magazine. He has been nominated for five James Beard Awards including "Best Chef: West" in 2013. Coi holds 2 Michelin stars, and is ranked #58 on the San Pellegrino World's Best Restaurants list.

Introduction by Isabel Allende

Blending literature and memoir, Ann Patchett, author of State of Wonder and Bel Canto examines her deepest commitments: to writing, family, friends, dogs, books, and her husband in This is the Story of a Happy Marriage. Together these essays, previously published in The Atlantic, Harper's, Vogue, and the Washington Post, form a resonant portrait of a life lived with loyalty and with love.

This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage
takes us into the very real world of Ann Patchett's life. Stretching from her childhood to the present day, from a disastrous early marriage to a later happy one, it covers a multitude of topics, including relationships with family and friends, and charts the hard work and joy of writing, and the unexpected thrill of opening a bookstore.

As she shares stories of the people, places, ideals, and art to which she has remained indelibly committed, Ann Patchett brings into focus the large experiences and small moments that have shaped her as a daughter, wife, and writer.

On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was murdered in front of hundreds of onlookers. Everything was over in mere seconds, but the events of that day have been the subject of heated debate for five decades. The presidential commission tasked with finding the truth, headed by then-Chief Justice Earl Warren, published its findings the following year--Oswald had acted alone--but the report did little to quell conspiracy theorists. Many seized on what they saw as inconsistencies in the report and branded the whole investigation a cover-up. Warren himself calmly dismissed the criticism, assuring his fellow commission members that "history will prove us right."

Now, in this eye-opening new account of the Commission and its findings, Howard Willens sets out to prove that Warren's advice was prescient in his book, History Will Prove Us Right ($29.95) Willens, one of the few surviving staff members of the Warren Commission, supervised the investigation from the very beginning and has waited until now to silence the critics and well-intentioned armchair detectives. Drawn from Willens' own journals and extensive notes on the investigation--which have never before been published--History Will Prove Us Right tells the true and complete story, perhaps for the first time, of every aspect of the investigation into one of the century's most harrowing events from a uniquely first-person perspective.

Howard Willens is the only surviving member of the three-person supervisory staff of the Warren Commission. After the commission's report was published, he left the Department of Justice and in 1965 served as the Executive Director of the President's commission on Crime in the District of Columbia. In 1967, he joined a private law firm, where he has worked for over forty years. He lives in Washington, D.C.

Southern Italian Desserts ($29.99) is an authentic guide to the festive, mouthwatering sweets of Southern Italy, featuring regional specialties that are virtually unknown in the United States as well as variations on well-loved desserts such as cannoli, biscotti, and gelato. As a follow-up to her acclaimed My Calabria, Rosetta Costantino has gathered 76 favorite desserts and master recipes from her Southern Italian homeland, including the regions of Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Puglia, and Sicilia.

How can I become more disciplined? How do I know if I'm talented? Should I self-publish? These are just a few of the perennial and contemporary questions addressed in The Creative Compass: Writing Your Way from Inspiration to Publication ($14.95). The authors - from different generations and writing genres - first help the reader assess where they are on their path. They then walk aspiring writers through five universal stages - Dream, Draft, Develop, Refine, and Share. While these stages apply to writers of every stripe, the emphasis is always on the reader navigating his or her own challenges, process, and goals. Insight-producing prompts and the wisdom of diverse artists (from Steinbeck and Thoreau to Spike Lee, Marilyn French, and Tom Clancy) help make every writer's journey of creation as rewarding as its destination.

The author of the acclaimed Sala's Gift delivers the definitive biography of Josephine Marcus Earp, a Jewish woman from New York who became the common-law wife of famed lawman and gambler Wyatt Earp.

In this fascinating biography, The Lady at the O.K. Corral: The True Story of Josephine Marcus Earp ($27.99), Ann Kirschner brings Josephine out of the shadows of history to tell her full story--a spirited and colorful tale of ambition, adventure, selfinvention, and romance reflective of America itself, from the post-Civil War years to World War II.

She began her career as a lecturer in Victorian literature at Princeton University, where she earned her Ph.D. A writer of wide-ranging interests, she is the author of Sala’s Gift (Simon and Schuster, 2006) and an innovator in education, media, and technology.

 The concept is simple: no essay works if the opening paragraph is weak. In this course, we’ll work on that introductory paragraph until it’s compelling, and only then will we move on to the body of the piece. There’s always resistance to this process—students hate going back over and over to revise one paragraph—but the ones who complain loudest are always the ones who say it changes their entire writing process.

Aristotle believed that plot was the most important and difficult challenge the writer faced. But by plot he meant the architecture of change in the hero’s fortunes. Character and structure are inextricably linked, and it is through structure that most of a story’s meaning is imparted. In this two-day class and workshop, David Corbett will demonstrate how the architecture of story, when properly understood, deepens our understanding of character, and how integrating character with story helps the writer avoid both formulaic plotting and episodic meandering. Special attention will be paid to individual student projects, with the goal of fashioning a strong narrative arc for each student’s work-in-progress.

The saga of the legendary Los Angeles band Little Feat is one of rock 'n' roll's great stories. Formed in 1969 by ex-members of Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention, Little Feat created groove-heavy music that was an irresistible mix of rock, blues, R&B, country, jazz, soul, and funk.

Fronted by the charismatic but doomed vocalist and brilliant slide guitarist Lowell George, the band recorded such classic studio albums as Sailin' Shoes and Dixie Chicken, as well as Waiting for Columbus, which many consider to be one of the best live albums of all time.

Acclaimed journalist Ben Fong-Torres-working with Little Feat's surviving members, their friends, and associates-wrote Willin': The Story of Little Feat ($26.99) based on hours of brand new interviews with the key players. The result? The first definitive biography of this beloved rock 'n' roll institution.

Ben Fong-Torres is a journalist, author, and broadcaster, best known for his work in Rolling Stone and the San Francisco Chronicle. He is the author of nine books and lives in San Francisco.

War-Toys: Israel, West Bank, Gaza Strip ($32.00) by Brian McCarty is a photo essay that uniquely explores the perspectives of children living in war zones using principles of play and art therapy. Girls and boys who have been affected by conflict become art directors for McCarty's narrative photographs of locally available toys, placed and posed against war-torn locations to recreate witnessed events and shared fears. Using proceeds from the sale of his book, McCarty will be exanding the War-Toys project to include the perspectives of children living in additional areas of conflict, including Southwest Asia, Africa, and South America.

The first volume of War-Toys chronicles McCarty's collaborations over the course of two years with Israeli and Palestinian children. Working with humanitarian organizations including the United Nations Relief and Works Agency and the Israel Trauma Coalition, McCarty gathered children’s firsthand accounts in classrooms, clinical settings, and even bomb shelters.

In 2007, McCarty’s work was featured in the first museum exhibition to focus solely on toys as a purposeful means of artistic expression.
