Which scientific landmark in San Jose moonlights as a mausoleum? Where can you find sacred street-food that will bring you closer to enlightenment? What's the real story behind Sarah Winchester's mysterious house? Find the answers to these and other questions you didn't know you had in Secret San Jose: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure. From player pianos to disappearing lakes, ghost towns, and buried limbs, this unconventional guidebook will take you through bizarre and fascinating stories that define San Jose's history and shaped this one-of-a-kind city. Whether you are a life-long San Jose resident, new transplant, or first-time visitor, local travel writer Cassie Kifer will introduce you to quirky and beautiful places and share stories about the city that never get told. Part tour and part scavenger hunt, this guide will take you to some of the weirdest and most wonderful places in Northern California's biggest and most misunderstood city.

Virtual 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 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.
