with live music from Matthew Edwards


Sixteen-year-old Allie, a self-professed music geek, has her dream job working at Berkeley’s independent record store, Bob and Bob’s Records. It’s shaping up to be a summer like never before, what with her mother starting to date again after the divorce, business at Bob and Bob’s getting dangerously slow, Allie crushing on a handsome stranger and, biggest of all, her new blog, The Vinyl Princess, which seems to be gaining interest one vinyl junkie at a time…


THE VINYL PRINCESS is a love letter to music, and the perfect companion for readers who walk through life with their earphones in, heads nodding to the rhythm of song, dreaming of all the great things that are to come.


Yvonne Prinz has written three books in the Clare series; Still There, Clare was was nominated for an IPPY Award (an Independent Publisher Award) and a Red Cedar Award. Not Fair, Clare was recently shortlisted for the Red Maple Award. A Canadian living in San Francisco, Prinz founded the famed independent music store Amoeba Records (our neighbor!)  with her husband. There, she keeps her finger on the pulse of hip teen culture. You can read the blog of The Vinyl Princess at


Matthew Edwards, the driving force behind The Music Lovers, will play a short acoustic set this evening; his song, “The Former Miss Ontario” is on the CD mix that accompanies Yvonne’s book. He will be joined by accordianist Isaac Bonnell


Be prepared for some cool giveaways, too!
