In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words.


by Lynda Barry

We now have first edition, first printing copies of Making Comics, affixed with stickers signed by author Lynda Barry, and with a monkey drawing.

"Do you remember the way you used to draw as a child? Most of us lose that as we grow older. Making Comics is a master class in the comic form. Barry, a powerhouse creator of strange and beautiful comic books, guides us through an intensive process to get the creative juices flowing and remind us of the courage we had as younglings. I was pleasantly surprised at my own daring as I worked my way through the book." - Ivy, Bookshop Santa Cruz staff

by Beth Pettingill Riley
First Edition, First Printing, Signed In-Person

We now have signed first edition, first printing copies of A Moving Inquiry, signed in-person by author Beth Pettengill Riley.

Is it possible to remain connected to the wholeness of embodied experience, as modern life becomes increasingly disembodied, fragmented and fast-moving? Many people hunger for a meaningful movement practice, but struggle to find it. The movement practice offered in this book is an inquiry into the nature of human flourishing. Our lives are made of movements, and bringing an organizing consciousness to our moment-by-moment experience opens a flow of intelligence from the natural world through our senses and tissues. Instead of living “on the surface,” we can know ourselves as part of nature’s body, connected to nature’s life force. This book is a guide to establishing a personal movement practice that can serve as the foundation of daily life, with the body itself as teacher.


by Christian Robinson
First Edition, Second Printing, Signed In-Person

We now have signed first edition, second printing copies of Another, signed in-person by author and illustrator Christian Robinson at our in-store event with him on December 6, 2019.

"I’m a huge fan of Christian Robinson’s colorful and playful illustrations which, in previous books, have illuminated the words of notable authors like Matt de la Peña. Another is a book all his own. In this wordless romp, a little girl and her cat venture through a portal into another world where left is right, up is down, and doppelgangers abound. This topsy-turvy book is so much fun and is sure to inspire the curiosity, creativity, and imagination of young readers everywhere." - S.B., Bookshop Santa Cruz staff
