Come join Amoeba Hollywood for California Bookstore Day on May 2.
"NCIS" star Pauley Perrette and co-author Matthew Sandusky will be at the store at 2 p.m. to sign copies of their new book, Donna Bell's Bake Shop: Recipes and Stories of Family, Friends, and Food (limited to first 100 purchasers of the book). The book tells of how Perrette and her friends opened a Southern-style bake shop in Manhattan and includes recipes.
We’ll have limited edition pieces for sale from Stephen King, Christopher Ware and Allie Brosh, among others. Quantities are limited. And we’ll also be giving away goodies like Grateful Dead rolling papers to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary and the publication of DEAL: My Three Decades of Drumming, Dreams, and Drugs with the Grateful Dead, the forthcoming autobiography by drummer Bill Kreutzmann.
California Bookstore Day also expanded into Independent Bookstore Day this year. About 400 bookstores around the country are taking part, selling art pieces and books. Find out more about it here.
Here are the pieces we’ll have on hand, along with a short description:
Stephen King - Finders Keepers Broadside
This color broadside reads as a love letter from King to passionate readers. It comes from his forthcoming novel, Finders Keepers, which is the second volume in a crime fiction trilogy (after Mr. Mercedes) and comes out June 2.
