Michael Kauffman, author of the hiking guide, Conifer Country, has a new book coming out–a field guide to all 65 species of conifers on the West Coast: Conifers of the Pacific Slope. Conifers are some of the oldest plants on the plant and include a number of world-record holders (and right here in California):

1. The largest living thing: the giant sequoia

2. The tallest living thing: the redwood

3. The oldest living thing: the bristlecone pine

Michael will be at Eureka Books on June 1, from 6 to 9 pm, during Arts Alive. He’ll sign books and answer all your conifer questions.

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.
