We are thrilled to host Meet & Greet events with authors frequently in our bookstore. We also offer our space to larger groups for lectures or workshops after hours with prearrangement. If you would like us to consider a certain occasion, please e-mail an overview of the proposed event to Cynthia at firstname.lastname@example.org with several potential dates.
Some of the other functions we have hosted include art demonstrations, musical concerts, lunch time discussion groups, collaborative community events and private groups or parties.
Dr. James Lindholm is the James W. Rote Distinguished Professor of Marine Science and Policy and the Director of the Institute for Applied Marine Ecology at CSU Monterey Bay. A native Californian, James has conducted research around the world, including the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans, as well as the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and Red Seas using technologies ranging from submarines to undersea robots to SCUBA. Through his work, James has found himself alone on the seafloor staring into the eyes of a hungry female white shark, and he’s been to the White House to draft text for an executive order. He’s lived underwater for five 10-day missions to the world’s only undersea laboratory and he’s briefed members of the House and Senate on issues of marine science and policy. He’s even been part of an ocean-themed interpretive dance film that debuted at the Smithsonian. James has published 38 research articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, a textbook, and now a novel, Into a Canyon Deep. He is currently finishing a sequel. James lives in Carmel-by-the-Sea with his daughter.
