Dave Eggers Secret Signing at Black Bird + Poetry Event Saturday

October 2021
This weekend Dave Eggers will be signing copies of his new work of fiction The Every at Black Bird on a 'drive-by tour' of his favorite SF indie bookstores. We are so excited but we can't tell you when it is happening. Only that you should buy a copy ASAP so yours can be personalized by Dave!
**Special Event with Limited # of Signed Copies Available**
(where Dave will personalize your copy) 
More Info on this Happening:
Dave Eggers will be signing our store copies of The Every at some point over the weekend. No, you won't be able to sit and talk with Dave to tell him all about your own love of lycra clothing or flip phones, but you will get a pretty unique copy of his latest book, The Every

If you want your copy personalized, please include the message in the order notes. We will notify you asap when pick up is ready. And we are also offering FREE shipping! We will have a very limited number of books - so pre-order your copy now!

Poetry Book Event

Saturday October 30, 4pm

Book Launch Event with local poet extraordinaire Amanda Moore

Join us in celebration of Outer Sunset poet, Amanda Moore, of her debut and already-award-winning Requeening.

"Moore's Requeening is a rare feat for any book of poems, let alone a debut, in that the lines, wrought with such deft precision and care, mark the sum total of a life richly lived and felt at the seat of poetry. Each poem is both a new vision of familiar themes and also, as the title suggests, a recommitment to the central questions of motherhood, language, the natural world, and their precarity in the American body. Moore leaves nothing unobserved, not because of some allegiance to poetic duty but because the objects of her world and the people in them deserve attention, which, to this poet, is synonymous with care. These poems care, first and foremost, for what they write of and through, which is a much needed—yet increasingly rare—achievement." -Ocean Vuong

In her outstanding debut collection, Requeening, Amanda Moore imaginatively parallels the life of a woman in her family with the life of the queen bee in the hive. These poems take us through the sleepless nights of early parenthood, drunk with joy, through illness and recovery, through grief and fierce love" -Ellen Bass

Event will be held outdoors in Black Bird Bookstore's backyard.

Masks will be required. Event is free and open to all.
