Robert Moss - Mysterious Realities (Corte Madera Store)

Monday, October 29, 2018 - 7:00pm

Sigmund Freud called dreams the "royal road to the unconscious," but to bestselling author and world-renowned dream explorer Robert Moss, they are more: portals to the imaginal realm, a higher reality that exists at the intersection of time and eternity. The traveler's tales in Mysterious Realities are just-so stories in the sense that they spring from direct experience in the many worlds. As you journey from the temple of the Great Goddess at Ephesus to an amazing chance encounter on an airplane, from Dracula country in Transylvania to the astral realm of Luna, you'll confirm that the doors to the otherworld open from wherever you are. You'll see what it means to live on a mythic edge and to make a deal with your personal Death for a life extension. At any moment, you may fall, like the author, into the lap of a goddess or the jaws of an archetype.

Robert Moss is the author of Conscious Dreaming, Dreamgates, and Sidewalk Oracles, among many books on dreaming, shamanism, and alternate realities. He is a bestselling novelist, poet, independent scholar, and the creator of Active Dreaming, an original synthesis of dreamwork and shamanism. He leads creative and shamanic adventures all over the world.

H. Bruce Franklin - Crash Course (Corte Madera Store)

Tuesday, October 30, 2018 - 7:00pm

Growing up during the Second World War, H. Bruce Franklin believed what he was told: that America’s victory would lead to a new era of world peace. Like most Americans, he was soon led to believe in a world-wide Communist conspiracy that menaced the United States, forcing the nation into a disastrous war in Korea. But once he joined the U.S. Air Force and began flying top-secret missions as a navigator and intelligence officer, what he learned was eye-opening. He saw that even as the U.S. preached about peace and freedom, it was engaging in an endless cycle of warfare, bringing devastation and oppression to fledgling democracies across the globe.
 
Now, after fifty years as a renowned cultural historian, Franklin offers a set of hard-learned lessons about modern American history. Crash Course is essential reading for anyone who wonders how America ended up where it is today: with a deeply divided and disillusioned populace, led by a dysfunctional government, and mired in unwinnable wars. It also finds startling parallels between America’s foreign military exploits and the equally brutal tactics used on the home front to crush organized labor, antiwar, and civil rights movements.
 
More than just a memoir or a history book, Crash Course gives readers a unique firsthand look at the building of the American empire and the damage it has wrought. Shocking and gripping as any thriller, it exposes a decades-long deception of the American public and commemorates the millions who have been fighting for decades.

H. Bruce Franklin is a former Air Force navigator and intelligence officer, a progressive activist, and the John Cotton Dana Professor of English and American Studies, emeritus at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey. He is the author or editor of nineteen books, and has received lifetime achievement awards from the American Studies Association and other major academic organizations.

Gary Pomerantz - The Last Pass (Corte Madera Store)

Thursday, November 1, 2018 - 7:00pm

About to turn ninety, Bob Cousy, the Hall of Fame Boston Celtics captain who led the team to its first six championships on an unparalleled run, has much to look back on in contentment. But he has one last piece of unfinished business. The last pass he hopes to throw is to close the circle with his great partner on those Celtic teams, fellow Hall of Famer Bill Russell, now 84. These teammates were basketball's Ruth and Gehrig, and Cooz, as everyone calls him, was famously ahead of his time as an NBA player in terms of race and civil rights. But as the decades passed, Cousy blamed himself for not having done enough, for not having understood the depth of prejudice Russell faced as an African-American star in a city with a fraught history regarding race. Cousy wishes he had defended Russell publicly, and that he had told him privately that he had his back. At this late hour, he confided to acclaimed historian Gary Pomerantz over the course of many interviews, he would like to make amends.

At the heart of the story The Last Pass tells is the relationship between these two iconic athletes. The book is also in a way Bob Cousy's last testament on his complex and fascinating life. As a sports story alone it has few parallels: An poor kid whose immigrant French parents suffered a dysfunctional marriage, the young Cousy escaped to the New York City playgrounds, where he became an urban legend known as the Houdini of the Hardwood. The legend exploded nationally in 1950, his first year as a Celtic: he would be an all-star all 13 of his NBA seasons. But even as Cousy's on-court imagination and daring brought new attention to the pro game, the Celtics struggled until Coach Red Auerbach landed Russell in 1956. Cooz and Russ fit beautifully together on the court, and the Celtics dynasty was born. To Boston's white sportswriters it was Cousy's team, not Russell's, and as the civil rights movement took flight, and Russell became more publicly involved in it, there were some ugly repercussions in the community, more hurtful to Russell than Cousy feels he understood at the time.

The Last Pass situates the Celtics dynasty against the full dramatic canvas of American life in the 50s and 60s. It is an enthralling portrait of the heart of this legendary team that throws open a window onto the wider world at a time of wrenching social change. Ultimately it is a book about the legacy of a life: what matters to us in the end, long after the arena lights have been turned off and we are alone with our memories.

Gary Pomerantz, historian, journalist and Stanford University lecturer, is the author of six nonfiction books on topics ranging from history to sports to civil rights. His first, Where Peachtree Meets Sweet Auburn, on Atlanta's racial conscience, was named a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. He also authored Wilt, 1962, about Wilt Chamberlain's legendary 100-point game (a New York Times Editors' List selection), Nine Minutes, Twenty Seconds, about an aviation crash, and The Devil's Tickets about a Jazz Age murder and trial. His most recent book, Their Life's Work, a narrative about the 1970s Pittsburgh Steelers, explores football's gifts and costs. For the past twelve years, he has taught reporting and writing at Stanford's Graduate Program in Journalism.

Victoria Golden - A Last Survivor of the Orphan Trains (Corte Madera Store)

Saturday, November 3, 2018 - 1:00pm

When he died in Santa Rosa in 2017, William Walters was among the few remaining survivors of the Orphan Trains that transported 250,000 children from the East Coast into the emerging West during 75 years of American history. William’s story unfolds in A Last Survivor of the Orphan Trains, a new memoir co-authored with Victoria Golden.

William Walters was little more than a toddler when his sister deposited him and his brother on an Orphan Train heading to destinations unknown. Separated from his brother and handed over to a cruel New Mexico couple, William faced a terrible trial. Through his strength and resilience, however, his life became a remarkable adventure. Whether escaping his abusers, jumping freights as a hungry twelve-year-old during the Great Depression, infiltrating Japanese-held islands as a teenage Marine in special ops during World War II, or courting the woman with whom he would finally build a loving home, William’s astonishing quest paralleled the tumult of the twentieth century—and personified the American dream.

Victoria Golden is a former book reviewer for Santa Rosa’s Press Democrat (“Book Club Favorites”), public relations writer, and editor. She is the author of Independent Photography with photographer Robert Foothorap (Simon & Schuster) and The Readers’ Choice: 200 Book Club Favorites (HarperCollins). She holds a degree in sociology from UCLA and for several years was a volunteer at The Children’s Village, a home for foster children in Santa Rosa. She lives with her husband in the northern California wine country where she currently is writing fiction.

From 1854 to the early 1930s, the American Orphan Trains transported 250,000 children from the streets and orphanages of the East Coast into homes in the emerging West. Unfortunately, families waiting for the trains weren't always dreams come true--many times they were nightmares.

Warren Farrell & John Gray - The Boy Crisis (Corte Madera Store)

Saturday, November 3, 2018 - 4:00pm

What is the boy crisis?

It's a crisis of education. Worldwide, boys are 50 percent less likely than girls to meet basic proficiency in reading, math, and science. It's a crisis of mental health. ADHD is on the rise. And as boys become young men, their suicide rates go from equal to girls to six times that of young women. It's a crisis of fathering. Boys are growing up with less-involved fathers and are more likely to drop out of school, drink, do drugs, become delinquent, and end up in prison. It's a crisis of purpose. Boys' old sense of purpose -- being a warrior, a leader, or a sole breadwinner -- are fading. Many bright boys are experiencing a "purpose void," feeling alienated, withdrawn, and addicted to immediate gratification.

So, what is The Boy Crisis? A comprehensive blueprint for what parents, teachers, and policymakers can do to help our sons become happier, healthier men, and fathers and leaders worthy of our respect.

Dr. Warren Farrell is the author of books published in 17 languages. They include two award-winning international bestsellers: Why Men Are The Way They Are plus The Myth of Male Power.

He is the only man in the U.S. to have been elected three times to the Board of the National Organization for Women (NOW) in New York City. He started more than 300 men and women's groups, including ones joined by men from John Lennon to John Gray. Dr. Farrell has appeared repeatedly on Oprah, TODAY, and Good Morning America, and been the subject of features on 20/20, in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, People, Parade, and The New York Times.

Steven Johnson - Farsighted & How We Got to Now (Corte Madera Store)

Sunday, November 4, 2018 - 1:00pm

Did you drink a glass of water today? Did you turn on a light? Did you think about how miraculous either one of those things is when you did it? Of course not -- but you should, and New York Times bestselling author Steven Johnson has. This adaptation of his adult book and popular PBS series How We Got To Now explores the fascinating and interconnected stories of innovations -- like clean drinking water and electricity -- that changed the way people live.

Innovation starts with a problem whose solution sets in motion all kinds of unexpected discoveries. That's why you can draw a line from pendulums to punching the clock at a factory, from ice blocks to summer movie blockbusters, from clean water to computer chips.

In the lively storytelling style that has made him a popular, bestselling author, Steven Johnson looks at how accidental genius, brilliant mistakes, and unintended consequences shape the way we live in the modern world. Johnson's "long zoom" approach connects history, geography, politics, and scientific advances with the deep curiousity of inventors or quirky interests of tinkerers to show how innovation truly comes about.

His fascinating account is organized into six topics: glass, cold, sound, clean, time, light. Johnson's fresh exploration of these simple, single-syllable word concepts creates an endlessly absorbing story that moves from lightning strikes in the prehistoric desert to the herculean effort to literally raise up the city of Chicago to laser labs straight out of a sci-fi movie.

In other words, it's the story of how we got to now!

..........................................................................................................................

Big, life-altering decisions matter so much more than the decisions we make every day, and they're also the most difficult: where to live, whom to marry, what to believe, whether to start a company, how to end a war. There's no one-size-fits-all approach for addressing these kinds of conundrums.

Steven Johnson's classic Where Good Ideas Come From inspired creative people all over the world with new ways of thinking about innovation. In Farsighted, he uncovers powerful tools for honing the important skill of complex decision-making. While you can't model a once-in-a-lifetime choice, you can model the deliberative tactics of expert decision-makers. These experts aren't just the master strategists running major companies or negotiating high-level diplomacy. They're the novelists who draw out the complexity of their characters' inner lives, the city officials who secure long-term water supplies, and the scientists who reckon with future challenges most of us haven't even imagined. The smartest decision-makers don't go with their guts. Their success relies on having a future-oriented approach and the ability to consider all their options in a creative, productive way.

Through compelling stories that reveal surprising insights, Johnson explains how we can most effectively approach the choices that can chart the course of a life, an organization, or a civilization. Farsighted will help you imagine your possible futures and appreciate the subtle intelligence of the choices that shaped our broader social history.

..........................................................................................................................

Steven Johnson is the popular, bestselling author of Wonderland and How We Got to Now, among other adult books.He was the host and co-creator of the PBS series How We Got to Now and has written for many blogs and publications, including TIME, Wired, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal.

She Writes Press - Courageous Pursuits Panel (Corte Madera Store)

Sunday, November 4, 2018 - 4:00pm

Courageous Pursuits: Four Authors Share Their Stories of Courage and Discovery

..........

Floundering in her second career, the one she’s always wanted, forty-eight year old Cheryl Suchors resolves that, despite a fear of heights, her mid-life success depends on hiking the highest of the grueling White Mountains in New Hampshire. All forty-eight of them. She endures injuries, novice mistakes, and the heartbreaking loss of a best friend. When breast cancer threatens her own life, she seeks solace and recovery in the wild. Her quest takes ten years. Regardless of the need since childhood to feel successful and in control, climbing teaches her mastery isn’t enough and control is often an illusion.
 
Connecting with friends and with nature, Suchors redefines success: she discovers a source of spiritual nourishment, spaces powerful enough to absorb her grief, and joy in the persistence of love and beauty. 48 Peaks inspires us to believe that, no matter what obstacles we face, we too can attain our summits.

Cheryl Suchors began writing at age six when she wrote a play starring her sister and herself. She continued to write poetry until she took a twenty-year detour through the business world. She holds degrees from Harvard Business School and Smith College. Her fiction, poetry and essays have appeared in Limestone, The Distillery, RE:AL, and HerSports magazine as well as in the anthology My Other Ex: Women’s True Stories of Losing and Leaving Friends. In her business career, she co-authored the book Own Your Own Cable System. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts with her husband and a plethora of plants. In her spare time she visits their daughter, travels, and engages in political activism. She continues to hike every chance she gets, most recently in Poland and Canada.

Our world is in the midst of an epidemic of incivility, but we have the power to counter that rudeness by claiming the superpower of kindness.

Most of us aspire to be kind. But being kind isn’t always easy. Our best intentions often fade when the realities of daily life intrude: traffic, telemarketers, crowded spaces, time constraints, and our own ineptness. Being kind when we don’t feel like it, or when all of our buttons are being pushed, is hard. But that’s also when it’s most needed.

In A Year of Living Kindly, you’ll see how committing to kindness will improve your life in countless ways, and ultimately can be world-changing.

Though she lives in Seattle now, Donna Cameron grew up in Marin County (Greenbrae). She went to Redwood High School and Sonoma State University. Donna has spent her career working with nonprofit organizations and causes, where she has seen kindness in action and been awed by its power to transform. While she considered herself a reasonably nice person (with occasional lapses into bitchiness), she knew that true kindness was a step above. When she committed to A Year of Living Kindly, she learned that it takes practice, patience, and understanding...and a sense of humor helps, too. Award-winning author of numerous articles, and coauthor of the 2011 book, One Hill, Many Voices: Stories of Hope and Healing, Donna believes that if enough of us exert our strength to choose kindness, we will change the world.

Medicinal herbs hanging from rafters. People of color dancing in Congo Square. Creoles and their code of honor. A pirate’s gift to a young nation. Gators, swamps, saints and loas. All would be the invaders’ after an easy rout. They had the leadership, experience, manpower, and superior weaponry. Of course they would prevail.

But three women got in their way, along with Andrew Jackson.

1814: It’s the third year of the United States second War of Independence. The British are on the verge of capturing the strategically important port of New Orleans. In the midst of the Americans’ chaotic preparations for battle, three women play key roles in the defense of the city: Catherine, a free woman of color, voodoo priestess, and noted healer personally summoned by General Andrew Jackson; Marguerite, a pampered Creole plantation mistress prone to out-of-body experiences; and Millie, a plucky, patriotic prostitute inspired by her pirate lover to serve in the most dangerous capacity of all. These three women’s lives and fates become intertwined as they join forces to defend their country.

Inspired by the contributions of real-life women during the Battle of New Orleans, The Cards Don’t Lie is a story of love, rebellion, intimacy, betrayal, and heroism in the face of terror and barbaric brutality.

Sue Ingalls Finan is a graduate of University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and Loyola University Chicago. She has taught creative writing and American history in Chicago, IL, Pittsburgh, PA, and Sonoma County, CA, and her stories have appeared in textbooks, anthologies, magazines, and newspapers. Now living in Sonoma County with her husband Jim, she writes for her local newspaper and volunteers at hospitals and libraries with Duffy, her Irish wolfhound therapy dog.

Winter’s Graces is filled with unexpected good news about growing older and highlights eleven qualities that ripen with age—including audacious authenticity, courageous ingenuity, necessary fierceness, self-transcending generosity, and a growing capacity to savor life and to ride its ups and downs with humor and grace.

Decades of research have established that the catastrophic conditions often associated with late life, such as severe dementia and debilitating frailty, are the exception, not the rule. Still, the mistaken idea that aging equals devastating decline persists, causing enormous suffering, especially for women.

Weaving together recent research, ancient stories, elders’ experience, and insights from the social sciences and the world’s spiritual traditions, Dr. Susan Stewart presents a balanced and heartening view of aging and reveals the developmental trends, attitudes, and behaviors that help make the winter of life a richly rewarding season. She draws on decades of experience as an educator and therapist and includes a wealth of tools and practices for nurturing the graces of later life and navigating its challenges.

Susan Stewart, PhD, is an emerita professor of psychology, a retired psychotherapist, and a Bay Area native who lives in Petaluma. She is blessed with two grown sons and four grandchildren, and has been part of a women's group that has been meeting since 1970. Susan is also a singer and a cellist and loves to dance.

Special Event for Kids!

The Magic of We is a children's picture book by Danielle Anderson-Craig and illustrated by her friend and fellow teacher (they teach at same school!), Carly Dooling. It is a tender tale of blossoming friendship in which two children meet and are transported into a world where the ordinary becomes fantastic and the known becomes surreal as their shared experience creates unlimited imagination and play.

A first book for both Anderson-Craig and Dooling, The Magic of We combines the magic of music and the music of words to describe the amazing feeling of finding someone who "fits" you.

Poet and kindergarten school teacher Danielle Anderson-Craig was the longtime love of the late organ and keyboard player Ikey Owens. Anderson-Craig wrote the The Magic of We as an homage and a celebration of connection and closeness. She graduated from the University of Southern California with an American Studies & Ethnicity/Philosophy degree.
