Obi Kaufmann for May Arts Alive

March 4th, 2018  |  by  |  published in Arts Alive, Eureka Books, Events

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:

Miss Kopp’s Midnight Confessions Now Available

September 10th, 2017  |  by  |  published in Arts Alive, Books, Eureka Books, Events, Local Authors

The latest from Eureka Books’ own Amy Stewart has arrived! Miss Kopp’s Midnight Confessions is the third novel in the extraordinary journey into the real lives of the forgotten but fabulous Kopp sisters.

Deputy Sheriff Constance Kopp is outraged to see young women brought into the Hackensack jail over dubious charges of waywardness, incorrigibility, and moral depravity. The strong willed, patriotic Edna Heustis, who left home to work in a munitions factory, certainly doesn’t belong behind bars. And sixteen year old runaway Minnie Davis, with few prospects and fewer friends, shouldn’t be publicly shamed and packed off to a state run reformatory. But such were the laws – and morals – of 1916.

Constance uses her authority as deputy sheriff, and occasionally exceeds it, to investigate and defend these women when no one else will. But it’s her sister Fleurette who puts Constance’s beliefs to the test and forces her to reckon with her own ideas of how a young woman should and shouldn’t behave.

Against the backdrop of World War I, and drawn once again from the true story of the Kopp sisters, Miss Kopp’s Midnight Confessions is a spirited, page turning story that will delight fans of historical fiction and lighthearted detective fiction alike.

Hear more of their story and see pictures from the time period which inspired the book from local author Amy Stewart herself at the Eureka Theater on Saturday October 7th at 7pm. Arrive early for conversation and cocktails.

Preview Children’s Author Festival at Eureka Books

August 14th, 2017  |  by  |  published in Arts Alive, Bookselling, Eureka Books, Events, Humboldt County, Local Authors

The 2017 Humboldt County Children’s Author Festival kicks off with a preview at Eureka Books on Saturday, September 2 from 6 pm to 9 pm during Arts Alive. Every two years the Author Fest brings dozens of children’s book authors and illustrators to local schools to promote reading.

The Festival began in 1975 with goals of bringing well known, published authors to Humboldt County. This now biennial event enables authors and artists to talk with students about books including the business and craft of writing. These efforts reinforce the idea that people create books and that children and students can write as well as read. This now biennial event features picture books, chapter books, children’s non-fiction, and even graphic novels.

During Arts Alive Eureka Books will have a display of books from all the authors participating in the Children’s Author Festival. Local children’s book authors are also expected to be available to sign books featured in the festival. Volunteers from the festival will provide refreshments and help families select appropriate titles as parents are encouraged to pick up copies of visiting authors’ books ahead of time.


Book Clubs Save at Eureka Books

June 24th, 2017  |  by  |  published in Arts Alive, Blog, Bookstore, Events, Feature 3

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 info@eurekabooksellers.com to sign your book group up for the discount program. See our book club program webpage for details.

“Constance and her sisters are every bit as enjoyable in this outing as their first. Stewart deftly combines the rough-and-tumble atmosphere of early 20th-century New York City with the story of three women who want to live life on their own terms. The addition of supporting female characters who are also pushing societal boundaries is a welcome touch to the series.”—Library Journal Starred Review
