May 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

TICKETS ON SALE NOW! Bookshop Santa Cruz presents Adam Savage—MythBusters and Discovery Channel star and one of the most beloved figures in science and tech—as he shares his golden rules of creativity, from finding inspiration to following through and successfully turning your idea into reality. This offsite and ticketed event will take place at DNA’s Comedy Lab, 155 River Street, Santa Cruz. Tickets are $30 and include one presigned copy of Every Tool’s a Hammer. Available though Brown Paper Tickets, while supplies last.

Adam Savage is a maker. From Chewbacca’s bandolier to a thousand-shot Nerf gun, he has built thousands of spectacular projects as a special effects artist and the cohost of MythBusters. Adam is also an educator, passionate about instilling the principles of making in the next generation of inventors and inspiring them to turn their curiosity into creation. In his practical and passionate guide Every Tool’s a Hammer, Adam weaves together vivid personal stories, original sketches and photographs from some of his most memorable projects, and interviews with many of his iconic and visionary friends in the arts and sciences to demonstrate the many lessons he has picked up from a lifetime of making.

The most important thing, always, is just that you make something. Every Tool’s a Hammer is sure to guide and inspire you to build, make, invent, explore, and most of all, enjoy the thrills of being a creator.

“Adam has drawn for us an imperative how-to for creativity that goes well beyond scissors, saws, and glue, to include vulnerability, self-confidence, and self-deprecating humor. I am aware of no human outside of fiction more qualified to pen this rousing paean to making. I adore this book.”
