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!
Saturday night is Arts Alive! in Eureka from 6 to 9 pm, and stores will be open late showing art.
Local author and artist Joan Dunning will be at Eureka Books signing her new children’s book about the marbled murrelet, Seabird in the Forest. It’s a very touching and beautifully illustrated tale about the life cycle of one of the North Coast’s endangered creatures.
Come meet the author and check out Joan’s original paintings from the book which will be on display on the Eureka Books art wall.
Seabird in the Forest is Joan’s latest book on the natural world. Her previous works include From the Redwood Forest, Secrets of the Nest and The Loon. She also illustrated the children’s book, Leaving Home.
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.
We recently acquired a fab collection of books on rock n' roll's most famous band. Early Beatles, post-Beatles, Beatle wives, Beatle magazines, coffee table book Beatles, paperback writer Beatles — we have it all. The picture shows a sample of the full collection. Come check it out, we're here to Help! But please, no screaming.
Our selection of literary t-shirts just got bigger. We now have shirts bearing the covers of such classics as Catcher in the Rye, Catch-22, On the Road, Slaughter House Five, Atlas Shrugged, Invisible Man, Fahrenheit 451 and Animal Farm.
If you stopped by Eureka Books during the February Arts Alive! you were no doubt impressed with our guest Jacqueline Suskin and her Poetry Store. Suskin creates poems made to order on her typewriter while you wait. And you don’t have to wait long! Her well of inspiration is clearly close at hand.
Now Suskin is raising money for a 2011 book tour. She needs $5,000 by February 27th.
I will travel across the country doing different events, reading my work, collaborating with local artists and musicians, and creating celebrations based around poetry. My hope is to earn enough funds in order to support each event (food, entertainment, venue fees, etc..), printing costs, and travel expenses.
I will also be doing Poem Store whenever I can (www.yoursubjectyourprice.com). This will be an added way to bring poetry into as many lives as possible. I am excited to interact with anyone who is still engaged in the importance of poetry as a driving part of American culture.
She’s almost halfway to her goal. You can pledge your support here.
Jacqueline usually sets up on the Arcata Plaza during the Farmers Market; we were glad to have her in the store on this winter night. And it was lovely to have the sound of the typewriter clattering around the store all evening.
