Signed Booklist

Signed books make great gifts, for others or yourself.  If you're a book collector, you know the value a signature can add.  If you're a book lover, having that personal connection with the author makes a favorite book even more special.  We do not charge extra for signed or personalized copies. 

We can usually reserve signed or personalized books for you at our events, even if you can't make it to one—just give us a call in advance. And we usually have some signed copies available after an author event.

We also order a limited number of signed copies of some upcoming books by authors in a variety of genres. Where available, this will be noted next to the book.

Here are some of our current supply of signed books or available signed book plates.  We strive to keep this current, but sometimes a book will sell out suddenly.  If you add a book to your cart while ordering online, please indicate if you only want it if it is signed, or only want it if it is a first edition.  

This list is updated on Tuesdays. Please, feel free to call or email to double check if something is still in stock.

Where is “away”? Environmental artist Bryant Holsenbeck had long wondered where trash goes when we throw it “away.” Realizing that what we discard never really goes away, she became concerned about all the disposable plastic that piles up in landfills and clogs our streams. Bryant began saying NO to single-use plastic and spent a year discovering ways to live without it. This book documents her journey and the creative alternatives she found.

In The Last Straw, Bryant Holsenbeck tells the story of how she learned to live differently, to become more aware of the world around her, and to understand more about plastic and its impact on us and our environment. The book is based on the blog she wrote during the year she tried to live without plastic. In it she provides reflections on environmental initiatives, tips for living with a reduced plastic footprint, and artistic inspiration for the journey.

Bryant Holsenbeck is an environmental artist in Durham, NC, who makes art out of stuff people usually throw away. After her realization that there is no “away,” that there is only out of sight, she resolved to create beauty out of trash. She has been making art out of recycled materials ever since, in an attempt to draw people’s attention to how much we throw away and to encourage individuals and communities to be better stewards of the environment.
