Kris Frieswick - The Ghost Manuscript (Sausalito Store)

Friday, April 12, 2019 - 5:30pm

The Ghost Manuscript follows rare book authenticator Carys Jones, who wanted nothing more than to be left alone to pursue her obsession with ancient manuscripts. But when her biggest client is committed to an asylum, he gives Carys an offer she cannot refuse. In exchange for his entire library of priceless, Dark Age manuscripts, Carys must track the clues hidden in a previously unknown journal, clues that lead to a tomb that could rewrite the history of Western civilization.

But there are people who would do anything to stop Carys from finding what she seeks—for reasons both noble and evil. The hunt takes Carys to places she never thought she’d go, physically and emotionally; first to Wales, her estranged father’s homeland, then to bed with Dafydd, a mysterious Welshman who agrees to help her with the search, and finally, deep inside her own psyche, when the monk who wrote the journal 1,500 years ago appears and assists her in her search.

Kris Frieswick is a journalist, editor, humorist, teacher and author whose work has appeared in national magazines, newspapers and books for over twenty years. She is an avid cyclist, cook and traveler. She lives on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and St. Croix, USVI, with her handsome Welsh husband.

Tom Clavin - Wild Bill (Sausalito Store)

Saturday, March 30, 2019 - 4:00pm

Wild Bill: The True Story of American Frontier's First Gunfighter is the definitive narrative of Wild Bill, the first lawman of the Wild West, by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dodge City.

In July 1865, "Wild Bill" Hickok shot and killed Davis Tutt in Springfield, MO—the first quick-draw duel on the frontier. Thus began the reputation that made him a marked man to every gunslinger in the Wild West. James Butler Hickock was known across the frontier as a soldier, Union spy, scout, lawman, gunfighter, gambler, showman, and actor. He crossed paths with General Custer and Buffalo Bill Cody, as well as Ben Thompson and other young toughs gunning for the sheriff with the quickest draw west of the Mississippi. Wild Bill also fell in love—multiple times—before marrying the true love of his life, Agnes Lake, the impresario of a traveling circus. He would be buried however, next to fabled frontierswoman Calamity Jane.

Even before his death, Wild Bill became a legend, with fiction sometimes supplanting fact in the stories that surfaced. Once, in a bar in Nebraska, he was confronted by four men, three of whom he killed in the ensuing gunfight. A famous Harper’s Magazine article credited Hickok with slaying 10 men that day; by the 1870s, his career-long kill count was up to 100. The legend of Wild Bill has only grown since his death in 1876, when cowardly Jack McCall famously put a bullet through the back of his head during a card game. Bestselling author Tom Clavin has sifted through years of western lore to bring Hickock fully to life in this rip-roaring, spellbinding true story.

Tom Clavin is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and has worked as a newspaper and web site editor, magazine writer, TV and radio commentator, and a reporter for The New York Times. He has received awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, Marine Corps Heritage Foundation, and National Newspaper Association. His books include The Heart of Everything That Is, Halsey's Typhoon, and Reckless. He lives in Sag Harbor, NY.

Katie Arnold - Running Home (Sausalito Store)

Tuesday, March 12, 2019 - 6:00pm

In Conversation with Natalie Goldberg

Katie Arnold learned early how her legs had the ability to carry her away to where no one could catch her. Scrappy and adventurous as a child, Katie moved between suburban New Jersey, where she lived with her mother, and rural Virginia, which her elusive father, a National Geographic photographer, called home.

Later, Katie chased her dreams to Santa Fe, where she became a writer for Outside Magazine. By her mid-thirties she had the world on a string. Katie relished the life she and her husband had built for their growing family among the rivers and mountains of New Mexico. But after welcoming her second daughter, Katie received shocking news: Her father had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Three months later, he was gone.

In the aftermath, Katie slid into a dark hole of anxiety and panic, while a stream of if-onlys looped through her mind: If only I hadn’t waited to get married and have babies, if only I lived closer, if only I’d spent more time with him. She tried every means to stanch her fear, but the only remedy that seemed to work was running long distances alone through the wilderness. Then on New Year’s Eve a year after her father’s death, Katie found herself making a startling resolution: to train for and run a 50k trail race.

Running Home traces Katie’s journey to outrun her grief over thirty-two miles of rugged terrain, mourning the father she lost and grieving for the man she never knew, while learning to let go. Clocking miles across mesas and mountains, from one side of the Grand Canyon to the other, Katie redefined her relationship to fear, motherhood, and running itself. This memoir is inspiring reading for anyone knocked over by life, who has struggled to put one foot in front of the other to find the right path forward.

Katie Arnold is a contributing editor at Outside Magazine, where she worked on staff for twelve years. Her “Raising Rippers” column about bringing up adventurous, outdoor children appears monthly on Outside Online. She has written for The New York Times, Travel + Leisure, Sunset, Runner’s World, ESPN: The Magazine, Elle, and many others, and her narrative nonfiction has been featured in Best American Sportswriting. She is the 2018 Leadville Trail 100 Run women’s champion. She lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with her husband and two daughters.

Kate Gustin - The No-Self Help Book (Sausalito Store)

Wednesday, February 6, 2019 - 6:00pm

Written by a clinical psychologist and student of Eastern philosophy, this handy little guide offers a radical solution to anyone struggling with self-doubt, self-esteem, and self-defeating thoughts: "no-self help." By breaking free of your own self-limiting beliefs, you'll discover your infinite potential.

There is an insidious, global identity theft occurring that has robbed people of their very recognition of their true selves. The culprit -- indeed the mastermind of this crisis -- has committed the inside job of creating and promoting the idea that we are all a separate self, which is the chief source of our daily distress and dissatisfaction.

No more than a narrative of personhood pieced together from disparate neural activations, the self we believe ourselves to be in our own minds -- although quite capable of being affirming, inspiring, and constructive -- often spews forth a distressing flow of worry and second-guessing, blaming and shaming, regret and guilt. This book offers an antidote to this epidemic of stolen identity, isolation, and self-deprecation: no-self (a concept known in Buddhist philosophy as anatta or anatman).

The No-Self Help Book turns the idea of self-improvement on its head, arguing that the key to well-being lies not in the relentless pursuit of bettering one's self but in the recognition of the self as a false identity born in the mind. Rather than identifying with a small, relative sense of self, this book encourages you to embrace a liberating alternative -- an expansive awareness that is flexible and open to experiencing life as an ongoing and ever-changing process, without attachment to personal outcomes or storylines.

To help you make this leap from self to no-self, the book provides forty bite-sized chapters full of clever and inspiring insights based in positive psychology and non-duality -- a philosophy that asserts there is no real separation between any of us. So, if you're tired of "self-help" and you're ready to explore who you are beyond the self, let The No-Self Help Book be your guide.

Kate Gustin, PhD, is a clinical psychologist practicing in the San Francisco Bay Area. She received her education from Princeton University and the University of California, Berkeley; and has worked in a variety of settings over the past twenty-five years as a mental health practitioner: outpatient psychiatry, community mental health clinics, VA Hospital, college counseling services, and currently in private practice. Gustin integrates the science of positive psychology into her psychotherapy, teaching, and consultation, and leads classes and trainings for students, patients, and health care professionals. Foreword writer JP Sears is an emotional healing coach, YouTuber, author, international teacher, event speaker, curious student of life, and satirist best known for his popular YouTube channel. JP's "Ultra Spiritual" videos have accumulated over 100 million online views.

Dr. Barbara Adams with Gloria Dunn-Violin - Women, Minorities & Other Extraordinary People (Sausalito Store)

Saturday, January 12, 2019 - 3:00pm

In Conversation with Gloria Dunn-Violin

More and more, diverse organizations have been achieving unprecedented growth in all the major industries and on a global scale. But true inclusive diversity in our organizations is difficult to attain, hard to sustain, and honestly, about a lot more than just economic benefit.

This book is for all of you who want change in the workplace and know your companies could do more and be more. It's for business leaders, hiring managers, human resources and people operations teams, all those within your organization who believe things could be and should be done differently. And it's for people who understand that workforce diversity is a better way to do business but are looking for guidance on how to do something about it to change their organizations.

In Women, Minorities, and Other Extraordinary People, Barbara Adams not only explains the economic and moral crisis that businesses and industries face when inclusion isn't achieved but also lays out clear, actionable steps you can take to develop diverse and inclusive workforces and begin the process of change. As an organization development expert in diversity who's been helping companies create systemic processes of change for over 20 years, Adams offers tangible solutions to complex issues that will enable you to walk a new path of diversity and inclusion, heightening your organization's performance and success.

Barbara Adams is Founder and Chief Learning Officer at GAR (Gender, Age, and Race) Diversity Consulting, based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She holds a Doctorate of Psychology degree in Organizational Development. Dr. Adams is a former director in the National Diversity & Inclusion office at Kaiser Permanente (KP), the largest nonprofit, integrated healthcare system in the United States, consistently ranked among the top five performers in the DiversityInc Top 50 annual survey. Before KP, Dr. Adams spent over a decade in global management and technology consulting with American Management Systems (now CGI).

Gloria Dunn-Violin is a talent strategist & OD consultant, thought leader, keynote speaker, and author of Revivement: Having a Life After Making a Living. She works with organizations to evaluate how to design and deliver programs to mitigate the risk and impact of baby boomers retiring and leaving jobs that require their knowledge and seasoned skills.  She also helps pre- and post-retirees understand their huge transition to retirement, and shows them how to adapt to this new phase in their lives.
