We're hiring for a year-round part-time position.

Please introduce yourself (or say hi again if you're already a friend and customer) and fill out an application in the store. A cover letter and resume can also give us a great sense of who you are and how you'd fit with the team.

Book Reading & Signing


 

This book is a redo of Carole's 1994 book "In the Children's Garden," which was illustrated by Lynn Pauley. The book was sadly ahead of its time with its focus on urban gardening, and it went out of print, BUT it's back and better than ever!

This update centers the text and illustrations on the inspiration for the story: The Children's Garden created by Seattle Tilth at the Good Shepherd Center in Wallingford. Pierr, Carole, and Tegan (our children's book buyer was the editor) took field trips to the garden together to scout and photography for inspiration. 

Join QABC for pudding "dirt" cup snacks: chocolate pudding cups topped with Oreo crumbles and gummy worms, flower cookies, clementines, lemonade, and Arts and Crafts!
We will kick off our event inside with a quick book signing
and finish off in our back patio!

A shipwreck might end a dream of circumnavigating the globe. Not for the Wilcox family. In 1973, the Wilcox family sets off to sail around the world aboard the 40-foot sailboat, Vela. Thirteen months later, they are shipwrecked on a coral reef, with surf tearing a huge hole into the side of their boat. With years invested in saving money, preparing the boat, and learning to navigate by the stars, parents Chuck and Dawn refuse to give up. Fourteen-year-old Garth is determined to continue, while eleven-year-old Linda never wanted to go in the first place. Can they overcome the emotional, physical and financial challenges to transform from castaways into circumnavigators? To triumph, they must rebuild their boat on a remote Pacific island. Damage sustained on the reef and a lack of resources haunt them the rest of the way around the world as they face daunting obstacles, including wild weather, pirates, gun boats, mines and thieves, plus pesky bureaucrats and cockroaches as stubborn as the family. Without a working engine and no way to communicate with the outside world, they struggle to reach home before their broken rig comes crashing down and they run out of food in a trial that tests them to their limits.

It’s the year 2147. Advancements in nanotechnology have enabled us to control aging. We’ve genetically engineered mosquitoes to feast on carbon fumes instead of blood, ending air pollution. And teleportation has become the ideal mode of transportation, offered exclusively by International Transport―a secretive firm headquartered in New York City. Their slogan: Departure... Arrival... Delight!

Joel Byram, our smartass protagonist, is an everyday twenty-fifth century guy. He spends his days training artificial-intelligence engines to act more human, jamming out to 1980’s new wave―an extremely obscure genre, and trying to salvage his deteriorating marriage. Joel is pretty much an everyday guy with everyday problems―until he’s accidentally duplicated while teleporting. 

Now Joel must outsmart the shadowy organization that controls teleportation, outrun the religious sect out to destroy it, and find a way to get back to the woman he loves in a world that now has two of him.
