Meet Tracy! Tracy is a lifelong bookseller and general awesome person. She doesn't typically introduce herself as such, but since we get to write her bio while she's not looking we'll go ahead and give you the truth: Tracy is fantastic. She knows books upside down and inside out, and can help you find the right middle grade or young adult novel for even the most picky of readers. We are extremely fortunate here at Books Inc. to have Tracy on our team. 
Also, she makes a mean carrot soup. That's not relevant to her book knowledge, that's just cool. And delicious.
Call or visit Books Inc. Alameda... they are your ONLY source for tickets to this fabulous event!

Courtney Ann Van Antwerp is a girl from the "The Last Frontier" who detests vegetables, listens to motown more than anything else, daydreams 90% of the day & hopes to one day own her own cafe. She treasures her family more than anything else, and will always read your kid a story if you simply ask.

Lucille the bear is back in this adorable new picture book from Peter Brown! She’s moved on from trying to get a pet… now she wants a friend! But finding a new friend is harder than it looks. As the faux-pas add up, and her attempts become more and more desperate, poor Lucille becomes despondent. Doesn’t anybody want to be her friend?

Lucille’s lack of social skills will leave little ones rolling on the floor, but may also serve to provide a surprising element of solidarity. It IS hard to make friends, and Lucille’s battle will allow kids to feel comforted by the fact that it’s not just hard for them. They may even be better at it than Lucille, and even she's (eventually) able to find a like-minded flamingo. Adorably illustrated in the same style as Children Make Terrible Pets, this new picture books has the makings of a contemporary classic. For ages 3+

Make friends with Peter at Oh My Gosh, Stories
