Friday Night Jazz -- Joshua Smith Trio
5:30pm - 8:30pm

Joshua Smith is a jazz saxophonist living in West Marin. He began gigging around his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio at age 14, becoming well versed in straight ahead jazz, through playing with some of the  area’s best jazz players. Joshua has performed throughout the U.S. and Europe, playing jazz both as a band leader and sideman. Since moving to San Francisco in 2004, he has been playing with many of that area's finest jazz musicians. Joshua’s jazz groups (quartet, trio, duo) have a wide-ranging repertoire of well-loved (as well as more obscure) jazz standards and straight-ahead jazz classics. 

 
Kids' PJ Party with Sandra V. Feder
6:00pm

Pull on your PJs and bring your teddy bear to the bookstore! Author Sandra V. Feder will be here to read you a bedtime story from The Moon Inside. Get cozy, listen to a story or two, have some milk and cookies and get your books signed, then head home for bed.

Yellow is Ella's favorite color. She loves the bright, sunny daytime, but every night, as darkness falls, she becomes afraid. When her mother encourages her to look at the soft glow of the moon, fireflies dancing in the night, and to listen to the chirping of crickets and the gentle rustling of the wind, Ella gradually realizes that nighttime can be something to look forward to rather than something to fear. 
With sweet, luminous illustrations by Aimee Sicuro, The Moon Inside will inspire parents and children to welcome the peaceful nature of nighttime into their homes and hearts.

Sandra V. Feder worked as a newspaper journalist after graduating from Stanford University. She joined a writing group when she became a mother and began to write children's books, drawing inspiration from her own young children. She is also the author of the popular Daisy series.

Shaun David Hutchinson discusses and signs "At the Edge of the Universe"
6:30pm

DIESEL, A Bookstore in Larkspur proudly welcomes Shaun David Hutchinson to the store to discuss and sign his new young adult book, At the Edge of the Universe.

From the author of We Are the Ants and The Five Stages of Andrew Brawleycomes the heartbreaking story of a boy who believes the universe is slowly shrinking as things he remembers are being erased from others memories. 
Tommy and Ozzie have been best friends since the second grade, and boyfriends since eighth. They spent countless days dreaming of escaping their small town and then, Tommy vanished. More accurately, he ceased to exist, erased from the minds and memories of everyone who knew him. Everyone except Ozzie. Ozzie doesn't know how to navigate life without Tommy, and soon he suspects that something else is going on: that the universe is shrinking. 
When Ozzie is paired up with new student Calvin on a physics project, he begins to wonder if Calvin could somehow be involved. But the more time they spend together, the harder it is for him to deny the feelings developing between them, even if he still loves Tommy. Ozzie knows there isn't much time left to find Tommy because once the door closes, it can't be opened again, and he's determined to keep it open as long as it takes to get his boyfriend back.

Shaun David Hutchinson is the author of numerous books for young adults, including The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley, which won the Florida Book Awards Gold Medal in the Young Adult category and was named to the ALA's 2015 Rainbow Book List; the anthology Violent Ends, which received a starred review from VOYA; and We Are the Ants, which received five-starred reviews. He lives in South Florida with his adorably chubby dog, and enjoys Doctor Who, comic books, and yelling at the TV. Visit him at ShaunDavidHutchinson.com.

Puppy Training at Marin Country Mart

Puppy Classes at Marin Country Mart in February

Marin Country Mart at Larkspur Landing is pleased to announce that Michal Wombacher will offer Level 1 puppy training classes starting Tuesday, February 21st at 11:30am.

There are three elements that make up the classes: trust and respect exercises that teach your pup to allow you to handle them without biting or rebelliousness; socialization and puppy play – the leading preventer of future aggression with other dogs; and obedience exercises.

Because the classes will take place in several outdoor areas at the mall all puppies must have completed their Parvo vaccinations.

Classes will meet at the Clarke Park located between Pressed Juicery and Farmshop. In the event of rain, classes will meet in front of George Pet Store.

Classes will run for six sessions and cost $245.

About the Trainer

Nationally known author, lecturer and dog trainer Mike Wombacher will teach the classes.

Mike has been training dogs for 22 years and has performed over 30,000 in-home private training consultations covering the entire spectrum of dog behavior from the mundane to the bizarre. He has also trained thousands of puppies in his group classes all over the Bay Area, trained hundreds of dogs in his boarding/training programs and trained other trainers.

He is the author of There’s a Puppy in the House (recommended companion book for the course) and Good Dog-Happy Baby as well as creator of the Good Dog, Happy Baby online video course. He is currently working on a new book, Hey, What’s with the Collar – Inside the War in the World of Dog Training, slated for publication by end 2017.

Mike has been certified as an expert in dog behavior by the California Superior Court, has been a featured speaker at the State Animal Care and Control Convention, has been featured on radio and television programs nationwide and written regular columns in national dog magazines.

Mike’s training approach focuses on channeling a dog’s natural drives into behaviors acceptable in the human pack, primarily through the principles of positive reinforcement as well as through methods that appeal to the dog’s canine sensibilities.

Finally, Mike has trained dogs for high profile celebrities in the entertainment, technology and financial worlds, including Robin Williams, Michael Tilson Thomas (SF Symphony), Kirk Hammet (Metallica), Linda Ronstadt, Charles Schwab, Jeremy Stoppelman (founder of Yelp), Max Levchin (co-founder of PayPal), Chad Hurley (founder of YouTube) and many others.
