Books Inc. Alameda proudly welcomes local author Edwina Phillips to the shop for a celebration of her delicious cookbook, Superhero Desserts!
When Edwina Phillips isn't writing, she's watching re-runs of the IT Crowd or the Great British Bake Off, and is the lead singer for a NIN cover band. She recently retired from running her award-winning dessert shop. She's also a martial-arts instructor who teaches free self-defense seminars to LGBT youth and other at-risk groups. You can catch her as the host of the HEROES 101 podcast and in PEOPLE Magazine's mini documentary about her life as a "Real-Life Superhero" (American Doers: Roxanne Cai).
