SIGNED first edition of Barbara Kingsolver's Animal,
Vegetable, Miracle. We also have SIGNED books by Jeff

pleased to announce that while staffer Rebekka is interning at
the Kennedy Center this summer, Matthew Eggert will be filling
in. Matthew has worked for us for many years - with a hiatus to
Seattle in the middle. He is back for what we're calling his
'third tour of duty'! Expect to see him next week. Isabel, my 10
year-old daughter, will also be helping out as a junior staff
member this summer - you'll see her when school's out!
