Julie Lindahl - The Pendulum (San Francisco Ferry Building Store)

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - 6:00pm

The Pendulum is a powerful memoir that traces Brazilian-born American Julie Lindahl's journey to uncover her grandparents' roles in the Third Reich as she is driven to understand how and why they became members of Hitler's elite, the SS. Out of the unbearable heart of the story--the unclaimed guilt that devours a family through the generations--emerges an unflinching will to learn the truth. In a remarkable six-year journey through Germany, Poland, Paraguay, and Brazil, Julie uncovers, among many other discoveries, that her grandfather had been a fanatic member of the SS since 1934. During World War II, he was responsible for enslavement and torture and was complicit in the murder of the local population on the large estates he oversaw in occupied Poland. He eventually fled to South America to evade a new wave of war-crimes trials. The pendulum used by Julie's grandmother to divine good from bad and true from false becomes a symbol for the elusiveness of truth and morality, but also for the false securities we cling to when we become unmoored. As Julie delves deeper into the abyss of her family's secret, discovering history anew, one precarious step at a time, the compassion of strangers is a growing force that transforms her world and the way that she sees her family--and herself.

Julie Lindahl is an author and educator living in Sweden. She is a contributor to WBUR Cognoscenti and has been featured on National Public Radio. Julie holds a BA from Wellesley College, an MPhil in international relations from Oxford University, and was a Fulbright Scholar in Frankfurt. She is the founder of Stories for Society, a nonprofit organization for renewing the art of story-making among youth for social transformation. WBUR 90.9 won the 2018 Edward R. Murrow Award for excellence in innovation and the 2018 Associated Press Media Editor's Award for innovation in storytelling based on a program series featuring her story.

Nolan Higdon & Mickey Huff - United States of Distraction (Corte Madera Store)

Monday, October 14, 2019 - 7:00pm

The role of news media in a free society is to investigate, inform, and provide a crucial check on political power. But does it?

It's no secret that the goal of corporate-owned media is to increase the profits of the few, not to empower the many. As a result, people are increasingly immersed in an information system structured to reinforce their social biases and market to their buying preferences. Journalism's essential role has been drastically compromised, and Donald Trump's repeated claims of "fake news" and framing of the media as "an enemy of the people" have made a bad scenario worse.

Written in the spirit of resistance and hope, United States of Distraction offers a clear, concise appraisal of our current situation, and presents readers with action items for how to improve it.

Karine Jean-Pierre - Moving Forward (San Francisco Ferry Building Store)

Wednesday, November 13, 2019 - 6:00pm

So many of us harbor pent-up anger about the political climate and the actions of those in power, yet politics seems like terra incognita. What can we do—and how? Karine Jean-Pierre implicitly understands our frustration. This former Obama White House staffer, now the chief public affairs officer for MoveOn.org, was not born into the privileged ruling class. The naturalized daughter of Haitian immigrants, she is an openly gay woman of color. Her own political awakening came relatively late—while in graduate school—and her political education and path to activism followed an unusual learning curve. In her inspiring memoir-slash-call-to-arms, Moving Forward, Jean-Pierre offers a timely manifesto for progressive change.

“Perhaps you’ve never voted and need friendly encouragement,” Jean-Pierre writes. “Perhaps you are embarrassed to admit you don’t know how to register to vote. Maybe you keep up with the news but don’t understand the core differences between Democrats and Republicans. Maybe you have a yearning to run for office yourself but need guidance. I’m here to help. Everyone, regardless of their age, their socioeconomic status, their location, their education, has something unique to offer. My goal in writing this book is not just to tell my story, but to show that politics can be accessible to anyone who wants to take part, no matter how or where they grew up or how young or old they might be.”

As she chronicles her own life story—born in Martinique and raised in Queens and on Long Island by hardworking immigrant parents—Jean-Pierre knows she speaks for the millions of people who do not have a voice in our society. Woven into the details of her unique, yet in many ways universal experience, she offers step-by-step, specific and practical advice for getting involved in progressive causes. She explains the difference between policy and politics and how engagement in making society more just and fair doesn’t always mean working with a politician. Jean-Pierre believes there has been a sea change in this country, making millions of people want to engage in politics as never before. In the age of Donald Trump, the need for all of us to participate has never been more crucial, she says, and together we will create positive change.

Karine Jean-Pierre's professional experience has ranged widely from presidential campaigns to grassroots activism, to local politics, to working in the White House. Jean-Pierre is the Chief Public Affairs Officer for MoveOn and an MSNBC Political Analyst. In 2011, Jean-Pierre served as Deputy Battleground States Director for President Obama's 2012 re-election campaign, managing the President's political engagement in key states while leading the delegate selection and ballot access process. Before joining the re-election campaign, Jean-Pierre served as the Regional Political Director for the White House Office of Political Affairs. She received her MPA from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) in 2005 and joined its faculty in 2014. She lives in Washington, D.C.

Speaking Memory: Remarkable Hidden Histories and Stories You Won't Forget (San Francisco Ferry Building Store)

Saturday, October 12, 2019 - 3:00pm

Presented with Litquake • Featuring Carole Bumpus, Donna DiGiuseppe, Meredith May, Deborah Tobola, and Fran Quittel (Moderator)

Celebrate National Reading Group Month with four renowned authors who will discuss their sources and inspiration for their new releases

Part culinary memoir and part travelogue, Searching For Family and Traditions at the French Table reveals French families at their best and at their own dinner tables. It is an intimate peek inside their homes and lives, a collection of traditional French recipes (cuisine pauvre or peasant foods), and accounts of families forced from their communities during the German occupation of WWII in the Alsace and Lorraine, only to continue to struggle for survival after finally making their way home. A retired family therapist, Carole Bumpus began writing about food and travel when she stumbled upon the amazing stories of women and war in France. She has traveled extensively throughout France and Italy, where she has interviewed more than seventy-five families to date for her food and travel blogs. Searching for Family and Traditions at the French Table is the first volume in her series, Savoring the Olde Ways. She is also author of an historical novel A Cup of Redemption and her unique companion cookbook, Recipes for Redemption: A Companion Cookbook to A Cup of Redemption.

Lady in Ermine: The Story of a Woman Who Painted the Renaissance reveals the captivating story of Italian Renaissance painter Sofonisba Anguissola, who embodies the struggle of women throughout the ages. Donna DiGiuseppe’s book vividly immerses the reader in the sixteenth century world of the Renaissance figures Anguissola paints, her ambitions, life story, and legacy. DiGiuseppe studied at U.C. Berkeley, including a year in Venice at Ca’ Foscari, focusing on the northern Italian Renaissance. Dividing her time between San Francisco and Abruzzo, Italy, Donna has been a practicing lawyer in San Francisco who returned to her first love of history. She lectures frequently on her favorite subject, artist Sofonisba Anguissola.

The Honey Bus: A Memoir of Loss, Courage and a Girl Saved by Bees reveals the compelling life lessons Meredith May learned beginning in her grandfather’s Big Sur beeyard. Part family history, part beekeeping odyssey, The Honey Bus is a rich and lyrical story of a girl who discovered that everything she needed to know about life and family was right before her eyes in the secret world of bees. May spent sixteen years at the San Francisco Chronicle, where her narrative reporting won the PEN USA Literary Award for Journalism and was shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize. She is co-author of I, Who Did Not Die, about a child soldier who risked his life to rescue a wounded enemy fighter during the Iran-Iraq War. She is a fifth-generation beekeeper and lives in San Francisco, where she keeps several hives in a community garden.

Hummingbird in Underworld Teaching in a Men’s Prison, A Memoir takes readers on an unforgettable literary journey that alternates between tales of creating drama in prison and Deborah Tobola’s own story. As she created a groundbreaking theatre program, Tobola engaged prisoners isolated from the outside world in the arts and helps them discover their own unique, powerful voices. Tobola is a poet, playwright and co-author of a children’s book. Her work has earned four Pushcart Prize nominations, three Academy of American Poets awards and a Children’s Choice Book Award. Tobola earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from the University of Arizona, and began teaching creative writing and theatre in prison in 1992. She is founding artistic director of Poetic Justice Project, the country’s first theatre company created for formerly incarcerated people.

Fran Quittel (Moderator) is an accomplished non-fiction author whose grassroots efforts successfully restored $270 million to 10,000 bank depositors by adding an amendment to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Her delightful children’s book, The Central Park Lost Mitten Party celebrates the rich history and beautiful architecture of America’s first urban public park.

Matthew Gutmann - Are Men Animals? (San Francisco Ferry Building Store)

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - 6:00pm

Why do men behave the way they do? Is it their male brains? Surging testosterone? From vulgar locker-room talk to mansplaining to sexual harassment, society is too quick to explain male behavior in terms of biology.

In Are Men Animals?, anthropologist Matthew Gutmann argues that predatory male behavior is in no way inevitable. Men behave the way they do because culture permits it, not because biology demands it. To prove this, he embarks on a global investigation of masculinity. Exploring everything from the gender-bending politics of American college campuses to the marriage markets of Shanghai and the women-only subway cars of Mexico City, Gutmann shows just how complicated masculinity can be. The result isn't just a new way to think about manhood. It's a guide to a better life, for all of us.

Matthew Gutmann is a professor of anthropology at Brown University who has spent thirty years exploring notions of masculinity across the United States, Latin America, and China. He is also a visiting professor at El Colegio de México and Nanjing University, as well as the author of eight books. He lives in Providence, Rhode Island.

Aarti Shahani - Here We Are (Corte Madera Store)

Saturday, October 19, 2019 - 1:00pm

Who really belongs in America? That question has chased every newcomer and many native born since the founding of the republic. In this heart-wrenching, vulnerable and witty memoir, journalist Aarti Shahani digs deep inside herself and her family for an answer—one that she finds in an unlikely place.

The Shahanis came to Queens—from India, by way of Casablanca—in the 1980s. They were undocumented for a few years and then, with the arrival of their green cards, they thought they'd made it. This memoir is the story of how they did, and didn't.

Here We Are: American Dreams, American Nightmares follows the lives of Aarti, the precocious scholarship kid at one of Manhattan's most elite prep schools, and her dad, the shopkeeper who mistakenly sells watches and calculators to the notorious Cali drug cartel. Together, the two represent the extremes that coexist in our country, even within a single family, and a truth about immigrants that gets lost in the headlines. It isn’t a matter of good or evil; it's complicated.

Ultimately, Here We Are is a coming-of-age story, a love letter from an outspoken modern daughter to her soft-spoken Old World father. She never expected they'd become best friends.

Aarti Namdev Shahani is a correspondent for NPR based in Silicon Valley, covering the largest companies on earth. Her reporting has received awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, a regional Edward R. Murrow Award, and an Investigative Reporters & Editors Award. Before journalism, Shahani was a community organizer in New York City, helping prisoners and families facing deportation. Her activism was honored by the Union Square Awards and Legal Aid Society. She received a Master's in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, with generous support from the university and the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans. She completed her bachelor's degree in anthropology at the University of Chicago. She was among the youngest recipients of the Charles H. Revson Fellowship at Columbia University and is an alumna of A Better Chance, Inc. Shahani grew up in Flushing, Queens—in one of the most diverse zip codes in the country—and believes every American should visit her hometown to understand what makes America great.

Paul Tough - The Years That Matter Most (Corte Madera Store)

Wednesday, October 2, 2019 - 7:00pm

Does college still work? Is the system designed just to protect the privileged and leave everyone else behind? Or can a college education today provide real opportunity to young Americans seeking to improve their station in life?

The Years That Matter Most tells the stories of students trying to find their way, with hope, joy, and frustration, through the application process and into college. Drawing on new research, the book reveals how the landscape of higher education has shifted in recent decades and exposes the hidden truths of how the system works and whom it works for. And it introduces us to the people who really make higher education go: admissions directors trying to balance the class and balance the budget, College Board officials scrambling to defend the SAT in the face of mounting evidence that it favors the wealthy, researchers working to unlock the mysteries of the college-student brain, and educators trying to transform potential dropouts into successful graduates.

With insight, humor, and passion, Paul Tough takes readers on a journey from Ivy League seminar rooms to community college welding shops, from giant public flagship universities to tiny experimental storefront colleges. Whether you are facing your own decision about college or simply care about the American promise of social mobility, The Years That Matter Most will change the way you think—not just about higher education, but about the nation itself.

Paul Tough is the author of Helping Children Succeed and How Children Succeed, which spent more than a year on the New York Times hardcover and paperback bestseller lists and was translated into twenty-eight languages. He is also the author of Whatever It Takes: Geoffrey Canada’s Quest to Change Harlem and America. He is a contributing writer to the New York Times Magazine and a regular contributor to the public-radio program This American Life.

Jack Gibson - Images of America: Mount Tamalpais and the Marin Municipal Water District (Corte Madera Store)

Saturday, September 28, 2019 - 2:00pm

Mount Tamalpais rose from the land that has become Marin County. As the crown jewel of the Marin Municipal Water District, the mountain and adjoining watersheds total 22,000 acres. These properties sit adjacent to county open space as well as holdings of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Mount Tamalpais State Park. Together, the land provides an unparalleled world-class recreation and wilderness area only 30 minutes from the city of San Francisco. Amidst the upheaval of the Progressive Era, the Water District was chartered in 1912 by citizens of Marin County to create a public water system and to fulfill the promise of a park. Rich with possibility, the land had remained surprisingly undeveloped throughout the 19th century. Surviving the Gold Rush, a notorious period of wanton greed for natural resources, the mountain needed protection. Armed with the power of eminent domain, the Water District started the conversion of the vast watershed areas from private to community ownership, a process that ultimately saved the mountain and left in its formidable shadow the beloved and beautifully preserved natural land of the Mount Tamalpais Watershed. Journey through that history with the photographs captured in Mount Tamalpais and the Marin Municipal Water District.

Jack Gibson has been on the board of directors of the Marin Municipal Water District since 1995. He is an avid historian, a former history teacher, and a practicing Marin County attorney.

Benita Matofska & Sophie Sheinwald - Generation Share (San Francisco Ferry Building Store)

Friday, September 13, 2019 - 6:00pm

The rising economic inequality that followed the worldwide recessions of the late 2000s led many to question the prevailing modes of capitalism that brought about this state of affairs. Since then, innovative forms of wealth redistribution have sprung up around the world in response, some fueled by anger and despair, others by hope and good will. In this book, Benita Matofska tells the story of one of the simplest, yet most revolutionary, of these new methods: sharing.

Generation Share builds on the foundations Matofska laid in her successful TED talk, taking readers on a global journey to meet the inspiring people building this new “sharing economy.” She introduces us to the everyday visionaries from around the world who are reinvigorating businesses like cafes, restaurant kitchens, and sports clubs to expand our conceptions of property and ownership. She introduces readers to innovators like the creator of a food sharing app that connects citizens with local supermarkets and restaurants to help ensure that food waste becomes a thing of the past; and numerous others around the world who happily choose to share their knowledge, their possessions, and even their homes with total strangers. Illustrated throughout with photography from coauthor Sophie Sheinwald, Generation Share is an inspiring look at a phenomenon whose effects continue to ripple through the global economy.

Benita Matofska is an international public speaker, change-maker, and world-leading expert on the Sharing Economy. An award-winning social entrepreneur, she created the charity The People Who Share and Global Sharing Week. Through social innovation, Benita helps organisations become change-makers and features regularly in the media worldwide. @benitamatofska

Sophie Sheinwald is an award-winning visual storyteller who specialises in photography with purpose. Drawing on her background in fine arts, visual studies and community art, she combines her ability to connect with her passion to help people and businesses create meaningful, mission- driven brands. @sophie_snap

Dan Kovalik - The Plot to Overthrow Venezuela (Corte Madera Store)

Tuesday, August 20, 2019 - 7:00pm

Since 1999 when Hugo Chavez became the elected president of Venezuela, the US has been conniving to overthrow his government and to roll back the Bolivarian Revolution which he ushered in to Venezuela. With the untimely death of Hugo Chavez in 2013, and the election of Nicolas Maduro that followed, the US redoubled its efforts to overturn this revolution. The US is now threatening to intervene militarily to bring about the regime change it has wanted for twenty years.

While we have been told that the US’s efforts to overthrow Chavez and Maduro are motivated by altruistic goals of advancing the interests of democracy and human rights in Venezuela, is this true? The Plot to Overthrow Venezuela answers this question with a resounding “no,” demonstrating that:

  • The US’s interests in Venezuela have always centered upon one and only one thing:  Venezuela’s vast oil reserves;
  • The US has happily supported one repressive regime after another in Venezuela to protect its oil interests;
  • Chavez and Maduro are not the “tyrants” we have been led to believe they are, but in fact have done much to advance the interests of democracy and economic equality in Venezuela;
  • What the US and the Venezuelan opposition resent most is the fact that Chavez and Maduro have governed in the interest of Venezuela’s vast numbers of poor and oppressed racial groups;
  • While the US claims that it is has the humanitarian interests of the Venezuelan people at heart, the fact is that the US has been waging a one-sided economic war against Venezuela which has greatly undermined the health and living conditions of Venezuelans;
  • The opposition forces the US is attempting to put into power represent Venezuela’s oligarchy who want to place Venezuela’s oil revenues back in the hands of Venezuela’s economic elite as well as US oil companies.

The battle for Venezuela which is now being waged will determine the fate of all of Latin America for many years to come. The Plot to Overthrow Venezuela lets readers know what is at stake in this struggle and urges readers to reconsider which side they are on.

Dan Kovalik is the author of critically-acclaimed The Plot to Scapegoat Russia, The Plot to Attack Iran, and The Plot to Control the World and has been a labor and human rights lawyer since graduating from Columbia Law School in 1993. He has represented plaintiffs in ATS cases arising out of egregious human rights abuses in Colombia. He received the David W. Mills Mentoring Fellowship from Stanford Law School, has appeared on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle, has written extensively for the Huffington Post and Counterpunch, and has lectured throughout the world.
