06/09/2019 - Discussion: Where the Angels Lived
Every month the Women's Museum of California and San Diego Writers, Ink invites a woman author to talk about their inspiration, their writing process, and to read an excerpt from their latest project. Historical, authentic and family-oriented, Where the Angels Lived tells the tale of a somewhat parallel universe that exists even in the 21st century—dealings with Soviet-style bureaucracy; skepticism; anti-Semitism; and ironically the same sort of isolation and rejection Margaret's Jewish Hungarian family experienced in 1944 before they were forced into concentration camps. Straddling memoir and reportage, past and present, this story reminds us all that we can escape a country, but we can never escape history.

06/15/2019 - Book Signing: Cindy Henson
Meet Cindy Henson on Local Author Day. A mysterious illness changed the course of Cindy's life. She was forced to give up her project-managing ways and instead listen to that small voice inside of her that was calling her to a different place-, a different way of being. That voice called her to Costa Rica, where she earned her master's in International Peace and Conflict Studies. Cindy wrote a book about her journey, called Jungle: A Journey to Peace, Purpose, and Freedom. Cindy lives in San Diego and works with nonprofits, government agencies, and triple-bottom-line organizations to increase the positive difference they are making in the world.

He currently lives with his wife in La Jolla, California.

Nick has always been a keen photographer, and his extensive travels have given him plenty of opportunities to indulge his passion. A few years ago he left a hectic corporate career to focus on photography. Nick's images of La Jolla have been published in a book titled La Jolla: A Photographic Journey by Sunbelt Publications and featured in the press and on TV. He has a broad body of work from the US, Europe, India, China and elsewhere, which he is constantly expanding.

05/21/2019 - Romeo & Juliet: Open Reading
The play's prologue calls the two protagonists "star-crossed lovers", a most fitting description of their story - one in which the Universe seems to conspire against them. The play draws elements from classical Greek tragedies, but William Shakespeare's take on the theme of forbidden love is unique, proven by endurance in the public's conscience and by adaptations, spanning over four centuries.

05/14/2019 - Book Signing: Lost Roses
Warwick's hosts Martha Hall Kelly as she discusses and signs her new book, Lost Roses. Martha Hall Kelly is the New York Times bestselling author of Lilac Girls. She lives in Connecticut, where she spends her days filling legal pads with stories and reading World War II books. This event is free and open to the public. Reserved Seating is available when the book is pre-ordered from Warwick's for the event.

It is 1914 and the world has been on the brink of war so many times, many New Yorkers treat the subject with only passing interest. Eliza Ferriday is thrilled to be traveling to St. Petersburg with Sofya Streshnayva, a cousin of the Romanovs. The two met years ago one summer in Paris and became close confidantes. Now Eliza embarks on the trip of a lifetime, home with Sofya to see the splendors of Russia. But when Austria declares war on Serbia and Russia's Imperial dynasty begins to fall, Eliza escapes back to America, while Sofya and her family flee to their country estate. In need of domestic help, they hire the local fortuneteller's daughter, Varinka, unknowingly bringing intense danger into their household. On the other side of the Atlantic, Eliza is doing her part to help the White Russian families find safety as they escape the revolution. But when Sofya's letters suddenly stop coming she fears the worst for her best friend.

Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Reserved Seating is available when the book is pre-ordered from Warwick's for the event. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details.
