[Bookstore Day] Meg Lentz - Ready, Set, Build (San Francisco)

Saturday, April 29, 2017 - 10:00am

 

Special Independent Bookstore Day Event!

In Ready, Set, Build, readers follow a busy dog builder as he sketches and plans his dream, clears rubble to make space, and gets to work digging, lifting, and sawing. He builds a house for himself and his bird friend, and satisfied after a hard day's work, they takes in all they've done and look forward to the next day of building.

Meg Fleming has built many wonders in the field of construction. Her greatest architectural achievement is a 17-foot gum wrapper chain that she made in the car when she was eleven years old. She loves hatching ideas, then building . . . and building . . . until they become her favorite thing: a story. Meg writes from her home outside of San Francisco, California, with her husband and kids who build things out of wood and wheels, flour and sugar, and bits and bytes. She also has a dog who always wears a hardhat.

[Bookstore Day] Chris Santella - The Tug is the Drug (San Francisco)

Saturday, April 29, 2017 - 12:00pm

 

Special Independent Bookstore Day Event!

The thirty stories in The Tug is the Drug take readers from leaping makos near the fairways of Torrey Pines to midnight Atlantic salmon fishing on the fabled Ponoi to encounters with very friendly mujeres on the streets of Havana . . . and even offer an unauthorized (yet unequivocal) account of Bob Dylan’s 1970s obsession with fishing. Santella’s peripatetic lifestyle and eye for entertaining details--even those that have little to do with the act of throwing flies at fish--will make you look at fishing in a whole different way. 

Chris Santella is a freelance writer based in Portland, Oregon, where he resides with his wife and two daughters. He is the author of 19 books, including Fifty Places To Fly Fish Before You Die, Fifty Places To Play Golf Before You Die, Why I Fly Fish and Fifty Places To Drink Beer Before You Die, and Cat Wars: The Devastating Consequences of a Cuddly Killer. The Fifty Places series has sold over 500,000 copies. Santella is a frequent contributor to the New York Times, Washington Post, Trout, Fly Rod & Reel, The Drake, American Angler, and Fly Fish Journal. His writing has also appeared in The New Yorker, Wall Street Journal, Travel & Leisure, and Links, among many other publications. When he’s not at his desk, Santella loves to swing flies for steelhead on the Deschutes, Sandy, and North Umpqua Rivers, and to front Catch & Release, a four-piece rock band that plays original compositions…including a tune called “The Tug is the Drug.”

Paul Scheuring - The Far Shore (Sausalito)

Saturday, April 29, 2017 - 4:00pm

Stuck in a dead-end job, single, and discontented, Lily receives a most unexpected visitor: an “heir finder” who informs her she is the sole beneficiary to an unclaimed fortune—$16 million left behind by a grandfather she never met. The boon comes with a caveat: the money can only be claimed if the remains of her grandfather—a man who went missing in action in World War Two—are located and he’s proven legally dead.

The Far Shore follows Lily as she embarks on a global odyssey—from the shores of South Carolina to the deepest jungles of Myanmar—in a quest for answers. In the process, she uncovers an incredible story—that of a stricken, shell-shocked soldier who left the battlefield and went to the ends of the earth in an attempt to answer the age-old questions of mankind: Why do we suffer? Is there a God? Is there a way out? It is a journey that will change Lily forever; for, like her grandfather, she finds herself going further afield in search of answers, deeper into harm’s way, into both the unmapped places of the world and of the heart, where she will find either unimaginable wisdom and wealth . . . or madness and death. 

Paul Scheuring was born in Aurora, Illinois. He grew up in Davis, California and attended the School of Theater, Film and Television at UCLA. Early post-collegiate employment included working in the stock room for a prosthetics company, driving a forklift for a prune company, and working as undercover enforcement for a cable company. Scheuring's first produced film project was the Vin Diesel picture, A Man Apart (co-written with Christian Gudegast). After that he went on to write and showrun the hit TV drama, Prison Break from 2005 to 2009. Prison Break received the People’s Choice Award for Favorite New Television Drama in 2006, and has been nominated for a string of awards since its inception such as the Golden Globe, the People's Choice Award, and multiple Teen Choice Awards. He subsequently directed The Experiment, starring Oscar winners Adrien Brody and Forrest Whitaker.

Eric Harrison - The Foundations of Mindfulness (Corte Madera)

Saturday, April 29, 2017 - 4:00pm

Discover the wisdom of the Buddha’s original teachings on mindfulness.

Usually translated as The Foundations of Mindfulness, the Satipatthana Sutta—taken from the 2,500-year-old teachings of the Buddha himself—is the original “DIY manual” on how to meditate and be mindful. Just a few pages long, with 13 recommended practices, it provides the authority for the worldwide practice of mindfulness. However, this influential text has been neglected of late—not least because the common translation, in Victorian English, is virtually indecipherable. So, many modern mindfulness students—focused instead on the Zen practice of “just sitting”—risk missing the benefits of the Buddha’s more sophisticated approach.

Eric Harrison first translated the Satipatthana Sutta in 1975 and made it the basis of his decades-long teaching career. Now, with a new translation and commentary informed by a lifelong consideration of the Buddha’s original teachings, Harrison makes mindfulness more accessible than ever—to psychologists, teachers, and everyone with a serious interest in the practice looking for deeply informed, sparklingly clear insights and guidance.

Eric Harrison is the author of seven books on meditation and mindfulness that have been translated into 13 languages and published in 15 countries. He began teaching meditation as a secular, science-based therapy decades ago-long before the modern mindfulness movement began-and has taught tens of thousands of students. He lives in Perth, Australia.
