Ed Steckley - Rube Goldberg's Simple Normal Humdrum School Day (San Francisco Store)

Saturday, March 17, 2018 - 10:00am

Special Children's Event!

Join us for a Saturday morning story time with the illustrator of Rube Goldberg's Simple Normal Humdrum School Day. A must for young inventors, tinkerers and makers.

Inspired by her grandfather, cartoonist Rube Goldberg, Jennifer George mixes humor and education in Rube Goldberg’s Simple Normal Humdrum School Day. Readers follow Rube as he sets out on a typical school day, overcomplicating each and every step from the time he wakes up in the morning until the time he goes to bed at night. If Rube’s inventions are any indication, “normal” means something very different in the Goldberg household. For Rube, up is down, in is out, and the simplest path to accomplishing an everyday task—like brushing his teeth or getting dressed—is a humorously complicated one.

Ed Steckley is an award-winning illustrator whose clients include MAD magazine and innumerable advertising agencies worldwide. He lives in Queens, New York.

Patt Lind-Kyle - Embracing the End of Life (Corte Madera Store)

Saturday, March 17, 2018 - 11:00am

Explore the Resistance to Death, and Awaken More Fully to Life

Death is simply one more aspect of being a human being, but in our culture, we’ve made it a taboo. As a result, most of us walk through life with conscious or unconscious fears that prevent us from experiencing true contentment. Embracing the End of Life invites you to lean into your beliefs and questions about death and dying, helping you release tense or fearful energy and awaken to a more vital life now.

Preparing mentally, emotionally, and spiritually for this inevitable transition provides improved clarity and strength. This book shares the idea of death as a journey of three steps—resistance, letting go, and transcendence. With dozens of exercises, practices, and meditations, author Patt Lind-Kyle helps you experience your truest, most expansive self. Exploring multiple aspects of life and death—with everything from chakras and the Enneagram to living wills and health care directives—this book is meant to help you unwind the challenge of death and discover the truth of your own path to inner freedom.


“The fear of dying keeps countless people from living fully—as well as keeping countless others trapped in endless suffering. Embracing the End of Life will help all of us prepare joyously for the inevitable.”—Christiane Northrup, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Goddesses Never Age

Jan Jacobi - Young Lincoln (Corte Madera Store)

Saturday, March 17, 2018 - 5:00pm

Special Children's Event

Young Lincoln is a novel about the childhood and young adult years of Abraham Lincoln. Abe himself tells the story of his years in Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois. Abe encounters the same problems that young adults have faced for generations: tension with a demanding parent; the need for friendship and the need to be alone; feeling shy and awkward around girls; recurrent depression; and what path to follow in his life.

Using primary sources, drawing mostly on materials gathered by Lincoln’s law partner, William H. Herndon, Jan Jacobi gives young adult readers a portrait of Abraham Lincoln they do not encounter in their history books. Abe has serious doubts and concerns about his future, his ability to cope with loss, his lack of religious faith, and his relationship with his father. It is a youth and young adulthood of struggle, doubt, and loss—and there is no guarantee he will survive it.

Jan Jacobi has taught middle school English and humanities in three schools for over 40 years. He grew up in New York and came to St. Louis in 1982. For 27 years, he served as Head of Lower School at St. Louis Country Day School and Head of Middle School at MICDS. In 2014 he was recognized as middle school teacher of the year by St. Louis Magazine. Ever since he came to St. Louis, he has been reading and writing about Abraham Lincoln. To celebrate Lincoln’s birthday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has published a number of his articles. He and his wife Ginger have three grown children, and they live with three dogs and a cat. His interests are gardening, and like Abraham Lincoln, reading the newspapers.
