San Francisco Chronicle columnist Kevin Fisher-Paulson shares his heartwarming essay collection, How We Keep Spinning...!: the journey of a family in stories: selected writing from the SF Chronicle columns

"Kevin tells a compelling story about a family that finds both a community and each other. They prove in the most powerful way possible that love really is all that matters." -- Glynn Washington, host of "Snap Judgment" on National Public Radio

Kevin Thaddeus Fisher-Paulson is beloved all over the San Francisco Bay area, and beyond, for the stories of family he has told as a weekly columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle. While telling his stories, Kevin has stumbled over more than a few truths about foster care, gay marriage, interracial family, rescue dogs, and cupcakes. Many thousands of print readers in northern California, as well as digital readers around the world, are touched every week by those truths. This book is the first bound collection of selected columns. These are the stories of Kevin, a cop, and his husband Brian, a dancer, along the journey of raising two challenging boys in the Bedlam Blue Bungalow of the outer, outer, outer, outer Excelsior, that most mysterious edge of San Francisco. These stories have drawn a loyal readership of interracial and adoptive families, families dealing with learning challenges and disabilities, gays and lesbians, and people who love the City.When not writing and parenting, Kevin serves as the Chief Deputy of the San Francisco Sheriff's Department. He earned a degree in Writing and American Studies from the University of Notre Dame, with subsequent coursework at the University of Iowa Writer's Workshop and the University of Oregon. His memoir A Song for Lost Angels, originally published by Fearless Books, earned finalist status in two different independent book publishing contests and is now available under his own imprint, Two Penny Press.

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 when we can assure authors and guests that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on an exciting list of virtual events for both adults and children and we look forward to exploring this new format with you.

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.
