Tracy Grant - The Glenister Papers (Sausalito Store)

Sunday, June 2, 2019 - 4:00pm

Every spy has a past. But Mélanie Suzanne Rannoch is not prepared to meet her husband Malcolm’s past literally walking towards them across a candlelit Mayfair ballroom in the person of brilliant, stunning Katelina Ashford, Malcolm’s first love. Nor is she prepared to find that Kitty is a former agent herself, who has come to London seeking Malcolm’s help. Mélanie, who misses her own past as a spy, always relishes the intrigue of espionage, but even as Kitty’s secret mission unsettles London society, it leaves Mélanie questioning her own assumptions about the man whose name and bed she has shared for seven years.

The quest that has brought Kitty to London began in Spain in the tumult of the Napoleonic Wars, but it stretches into some of the Britain’s most powerful families. From the gritty bustle of Bow Street to the scandalous (or intrigue-laced) grottos of Vauxhall, The Glenister Papers follows the Rannochs as they find themselves involved in a search for a mysterious operative known as the Goshawk, a painting that holds the key to unraveling a long-buried secret history, and a fiendishly clever killer working very much in the present. But even as they try to keep the revelations from overturning vital alliances and smashing the lives of their closest friends, Mélanie and Malcolm discover the greatest danger may be to their own personal alliance.

Tracy Grant has been making up stories as long as she can remember and writing them down since third grade when she was assigned writing a story and realized she had a wealth of characters and plots inside her head. She studied British history at Stanford University and received the Firestone Award for Excellence in Research for her honors thesis on shifting conceptions of honor in late fifteenth century England. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she is on the board of the Merola Opera Program, a training program for professional opera singers, coaches, and stage directors.

Jennifer Weiner - Mrs. Everything (Sausalito Store)

Saturday, June 22, 2019 - 2:00pm

Meet & Greet!

Jo and Bethie Kaufman were born into a world full of promise.

Growing up in 1950s Detroit, they live in a perfect “Dick and Jane” house, where their roles in the family are clearly defined. Jo is the tomboy, the bookish rebel with a passion to make the world more fair; Bethie is the pretty, feminine good girl, a would-be star who enjoys the power her beauty confers and dreams of a traditional life.

But the truth ends up looking different from what the girls imagined. Jo and Bethie survive traumas and tragedies. As their lives unfold against the background of free love and Vietnam, Woodstock and women’s lib, Bethie becomes an adventure-loving wild child who dives headlong into the counterculture and is up for anything (except settling down). Meanwhile, Jo becomes a proper young mother in Connecticut, a witness to the changing world instead of a participant. Neither woman inhabits the world she dreams of, nor has a life that feels authentic or brings her joy. Is it too late for the women to finally stake a claim on happily ever after?

Jennifer Weiner's most ambitious novel yet, Mrs. Everything tells the story of two sisters who, with their different dreams and different paths, offer answers to the question: How should a woman be in the world?

Jennifer Weiner is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of sixteen books, including Good in Bed, In Her Shoes, and her memoir, Hungry Heart: Adventures in Life, Love, and Writing. A graduate of Princeton University and contributor to the New York Times Opinion section, Jennifer lives with her family in Philadelphia. Visit her online at JenniferWeiner.com.

Carolyn Zaroff - Durano (Sausalito Store)

Wednesday, July 10, 2019 - 6:00pm

Bekah is a Ute Indian who was just a little girl when her cousin, Durano, left the tribe to live in Santa Fe to learn the language of the new people and the ways of the Americans and Spanish. Now he is an eighteen-year-old who is seemingly ready to accept his destiny, even though there is much about him that members of his tribe, including Bekah’s brother, both envy and hate. It is 1849 when seventeen-year-old Russian Jew, Benjamin Perlov, arrives in San Francisco, hoping to begin anew. As Durano steps into his role as Ute Indian chief, his life eventually intersects with that of Perlov who quickly becomes a friend of the Utes. As Perlov negotiates with the government so the Utes can remain on their ancestral lands instead of on new reservations created to ensure gold miners can stake their claims in Indian territory, fate leads him to Bekah’s arms and what he hopes is a future filled with love, hope, and new beginnings.

Carolyn Zaroff grew up in Washington, D.C. and graduated from George Washington University. She then lived and worked as a commercial writer in New York City and Boston, as well as Rochester, N.Y. where she was an advertising manager and she writer for the Rochester Institute of Technology and then an editor for Rochester Women Magazine. After Rochester, she lived for ten years in Aspen, Colorado, where she wrote freelance for Aspen Magazine. Her interest in the Ute Indians developed while she lived there, learned their history and visited their reservation in Utah. Since moving to Sausalito in 1995, she has become an avid landscape painter, whose artwork can be viewed at carolynzaroff.com.

Cuong Lu - The Buddha in Jail (Sausalito Store)

Tuesday, July 30, 2019 - 6:00pm

As a prison chaplain, Cuong Lu discovered that when the men inside allowed themselves to feel their pain--including remorse for committing crimes--knowing and feeling the truth became a source of strength for them.

This is a book of fifty-two vignettes--stories and teachings about Lu's six years as a prison chaplain. He found that when the inmates felt listened to, understood and not judged, it transformed their sense of who they are, and as a result changed their attitudes and their behavior. Cuong Lu opens our eyes beyond prejudice to see others--and ourselves--in a larger perspective. When we look at prisoners without judgment, we connect with those we might never know, and with our own basic goodness. The message of The Buddha in Jail is one of redemption.

This book is not just about the prisoners. It's about all of us. We're all caught in distorted and limiting ideas of ourselves. We don't believe freedom and happiness are attainable. But when we come to believe in ourselves, we discover the freedom and happiness already within. Cuong Lu shows us that this approach works. It can be applied to all prisons, and also to our own lives.

Cuong Lu, Buddhist teacher, scholar, and writer, was born in Nha Trang, Vietnam, in 1968. He majored in East Asian studies at the University of Leiden, and in 1993 was ordained a monk at Plum Village in France under the guidance of Thich Nhat Hanh. In 2000, he was recognized as a teacher in the Lieu Quan line of the Linji School of Zen Buddhism. In 2009, Lu returned to lay life in the Netherlands, where, together with five colleagues, he stood at the birth of the Buddhist Spiritual Care Program within Holland's penitentiary system. In 2015, he received a master's degree in Buddhist Spiritual Care at Vrije University in Amsterdam. Lu is the founder of Mind Only School, in Gouda, South Holland, where he teaches Buddhist philosophy and psychology, specializing in Yogachara Buddhism combined with the Madhyamaka (Middle Way) School of Nagarjuna.
