Unbelievable energy at Rebecca Solnit last night! Thank you to our crowd of 250 passionate “people of the word.” It was electric! Remember: YOUR VOTE IS YOUR VOICE. The first 📷 by @emmakmorris. Second photo: most of our amazing Bookminer squad + Rebecca signing stock.
Yesterday I met John, who drove all the way from Angwin to purchase a ticket for Rebecca Solnit and this book of hers. He was absolutely *giddy* and it was a pleasure to get to know him a bit. John defies stereotypes and breaks barriers, and strongly believes in keeping conversations open with his conservative friends and colleagues, and is even bringing one of them a flyer for the event. Tix still available (link in profile) and we should have some at the door, too!
We have been following Claire Fuller since her debut novel, Our Endless Numbered Days, came out in 2015. We were obsessed and it continues to be one of our top hand-sold books. Then we loved Swimming Lessons (2017) and that book just sold itself! Bitter Orange does NOT disappoint. Three of our booksellers have already devoured it, as one must do with her novels. Elayna describes Fuller as “a skilled author with a deft hand at revealing plot lines piece by delicious piece.” Ready for pick up at both shops!
Celebrate FALL with a six-week poetry workshop, led by Napa County’s Poet Laureate, Jeremy Benson! $100 includes this beautiful book and six 2-hour meetings. Starts tomorrow and there are still some seats available! Call us at 707-733-3199.
