Venue: Sydney Goldstein Theater


Richard Powers is the author of thirteen novels, including the 2019 novel The Overstory, which won the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction. The book is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of the natural world. His new novel, Bewilderment, brings Powers’ astute and compassionate eye for nature to the cosmos. His most intimate book yet, it is the account of a father and son’s ferocious love, and contains soaring descriptions of the natural world and its tantalizing vision of life beyond. Powers is a MacArthur Fellow and received the National Book Award.

You and your guests must be fully vaccinated to attend this event; proof of vaccination is required upon arrival. Full vaccination is defined as completion of the two-dose regimen of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or one dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine administered two weeks or more in advance of the event.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we are so excited to begin reintroducing the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In addition to meet-and-greet author events and standard author talks, we are also continuting virtual author events.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
