A native Californian privileged to grow up in a family that treasured books and a town with a wonderful children’s library.

Former co-owner of a financial services company, Pearson-Wood Assoc.

My favorite books are mysteries and biographies.

My current goal is to contribute to the success of the bookstore. My long-term goal has been and continues to be obliterating the glass ceiling.


Webmaster

Webmaster

When not discussing the thermal properties of light with his friend Albert, Jim can be seen around Sausalito at the Dog Park, Sister City Events and the Portuguese Hall.

For reading, he enjoys 20th century non-fiction especially the people and events of that era. His favorite writer is Robert Penn Warren. Could it be because Mr. Warren was born only 15 miles from Jim’s hometown in Tennessee?

Quoting Jim, “ If you can have cows in Berkeley, you sure as heck should have a bookstore in Sausalito.
