Eureka Books is excited to announce that we will be hosting bestselling author and artist Obi Kaufmann for a book signing at Arts Alive on May 5th from 6pm to 9pm.
If you love California, you need this book. Obi Kaufmann grew up in the San Francisco East Bay and has spent decades exploring the Golden State’s natural wonders with paintbrush in hand. Now he has gathered his art and understanding of nature’s cycles in a unique collection of science and art like nothing we’ve seen before. The California Field Atlas is part atlas and part field guide, but so much more than both of these. It’s an art book and a exploration of our natural past and possible futures. Come meet Obi and see for yourself why this book sold out before Christmas and is destined to become a classic!
This is an excellent article from the San Francisco Chronicle found on Obi Kaufmann’s website:

Hiking Humboldt Volume 2 Author Rees Hughes and Cartographer Jason Barnes will be signing books for Arts Alive at Eureka Books in Old Town Eureka on December 2nd.
Hiking Humboldt Volume 2 provides an excellent companion to Volume 1. A love of trails and nature brought this team of authors, cartographers, and graphic designers together to create two books that are the definitive collection of hiking guides for Humboldt County. Published by Backcountry Press, Hiking Humboldt Volumes 1 & 2 are the perfect gift for the adventurers in your family.
Backcountry Press, based in Kneeland, is owned by Michael Kauffmann and Allison Poklemba. This husband and wife team have ensured that Volume 2 is 100% Humboldt-made. Allison and Michael do graphic design, website development, and book distribution. Times Printing in Eureka printed the book on recycled paper. The full-color, 216 page guide retails for $29.95 and can be found in all bookstores (and other stores) across the county.

Get 20% off your book club picks with the Book Club Program at Eureka Books. In addition to the discount, the program will give members of a listed book club a discount and help recruit new members.
“Each group has its own flavor and we cater to all kinds,” said Katie McCreary, Manager of Eureka Books. “Some folks love new fiction, some like the latest science writing, and some need a friend to help them through the classics. They can find one of the many local groups or even start their own. All it takes is getting a few people together once a month and a whole new world opens up.”
Eureka Books employee and book club member Solomon Everta added, “I was trying to get through the classics on my own and struggling, but after I joined the North Coast Great Books Discussion Group I’ve found it to be fun and I feel like I’m learning a lot. It’s comforting to know you have friends along for the read.”
Eureka Books is located at 426 Second Street in Old Town, across from the gazebo where you can drop off your book club’s information. Alternately, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign your book group up for the discount program. See our book club program webpage for details.
