Design*Sponge founder and bestselling author Grace Bonney discusses Good Company (Issue 2): The Fear(less) Issue. Joining Grace for this special event are Good Company (Issue 2) contributors Windy Chien, artist and creator of The Year of Knots exhibition; Esmé Weijun Wang, award-winning author of The Border of ParadiseShakirah Simley , San Francisco-based writer, educator, and community organizer; and Reem Assil, founder and owner of the bakery Reem’s California.


Inspired by her New York Times bestseller In the Company of Women, Grace Bonney's Good Company is the innovative and supportive journal for women and nonbinary creatives at every stage of life, founded on the power of inclusivity, diversity, and celebrating the differences that unite. Its mission is to provide motivation, inspiration, advice, and a vital sense of connection and community. Sharing everything from overarching philosophy and pep talks to useful, targeted advice, the debut Community Issue brought together diverse voices (including Tavi Gevinson, Cynthia Erivo, Julia Turshen, Emma Straub, Ashley C. Ford, and Beejoli Shah) and experiences (from woodworkers, tattoo artists, bakers, mental health advocates, designers, and more). 

The Fear(less) Issue continues Good Company's mission to provide an energetic and highly stimulating place to connect, learn, grow, and work through the challenges that women across the spectrum experience in pursuing their passions and dreams. The Fear(less) Issue focuses on the subject at the heart of any kind of ambition: failure. We all fail--but it's how we fail, and how we recover, that separates a positive experience from a negative one. This issue shares words, stories, life lessons, and more as it explores something we all shun, yet which has a power unlike any other to help us succeed.

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 look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In the meantime, we have an exciting list of virtual events and meet-and-greet booksignings on our calendar and we look forward welcoming you into this new format.

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.
