Eureka Books Makes Its Feature Film Debut

November 17th, 2011  |  by  |  published in Bookstore, Feature 2

Behind the Scenes

Local filmmaker Maria Matteoli spent the morning shooting a scene of her feature film, Wine of Summer, at Eureka Books. In the scene filmed here, James (played by Ethan Peck, grandson of Gregory), finds the book, Tinto de Verano, that (if I understand it correctly) sets off the action, which soon heads to Spain where most of the movie was shot this October. More info at the NC Journal blog.

A photo snapped inside Eureka Books is in this week’s North Coast Journal. It was taken during a book signing with author Cathleen Cahill, who talked about her book Federal Fathers and Mothers: A Social History of the United States Indian Service, 1869-1933.  The book features a chapter on the Hoopa Valley Reservation.

Cahill writes this week’s cover story about how native and non-native workers with the Bureau of Indian Affairs sabatoged federal efforts to kill native cultures.

The photo caption reads “Cathleen Cahill talks with Erma Marshall of Hoopa, whose son insisted they get a copy of Cahill’s new book on June 19, when the New Mexico-based historian was signing copies at Eureka books.” Photo by Carrie Peyton-Dahlberg.

Stop in to Eureka Books pick up a copy of Cahill’s book. To reserve a copy call us at 707-444-9593.

 


New Old Journals

Blank Journals from Recycled Books: Covers selected by Eureka Books, journals made by Ex-Libris Anonymous

Blank Journals from Recycled Books: Covers selected by Eureka Books, journals made by Ex-Libris Anonymous

Come check out our freshly restocked blank book bins which are filled to the brim with a new shipment of unique journals recycled from old hardcover books.

We are especially fond of these journals because we hand-pick old or damaged hardbacks from our own overstocked shelves to be re-purposed for a new life as a blank book. Each journal is one-of-a-kind. They make great gifts but you’re bound to find one that’s perfect for your own strokes of genius.

Who needs Yelp when you have fans like these?

Thanks to Midge Raymond for the shout out to Eureka Books on her blog. Midge said she escaped the weather by ducking into Eureka Books on a recent visit here.

We wear the “book geeks” tag with pride.  Great photos, too.


Wicked Bugs — Hot off the presses!

April 15th, 2011  |  by  |  published in Books, Bookstore

 

Wicked Bugs by Amy Stewart

Wicked Bugs by Eureka author Amy Stewart

Eureka Books is excited to announce the arrival of Wicked Bugs, the latest book by best selling Eureka author Amy Stewart.

And don’t think we’re biased just because Amy is co-owner of Eureka Books.  This handsome little hardcover is beautifully illustrated by Briony Morrow-Cribbs, the same artist who put her talents to the Wicked Bugs’ big sister, Wicked Plants.

You can come get your copy now, but Eureka Books is hosting the official book launch party with Amy from 6-9pm on May 7th during Arts Alive!  We will also have Briony’s signed, hand-colored prints from the original copper plates used to illustrate the books on display (and on sale) for Arts Alive!

Blank Journals from Ex Libris Anonymous

Blank Journals from Ex Libris Anonymous

Our blank book bins are restocked with recycled blank journals — former hardcover books repurposed by Ex Libris Anonymous for a new incarnation to fit your blank book needs.

We are especially excited about this batch because our staff hand picked these great, old hardbacks from our very own overstocked shelves for a trip to the book doctor to have their guts ripped out and their spines severed so that you can keep your most intimate thoughts between two stylish covers.
