Bolen Books is honoured to welcome local anthropologist and rock art researcher Genevieve Von Petzinger to our store for the launch of her exciting new book, First Signs: Unlocking the Mysteries of the World's Oldest Symbols. 

The book, which goes on sale May 31st, is already being hailed as a breakthrough work in the field. Part scientific exploration, part travel narrative, First Signs reads with an edge of adventure as Von Petzinger reveals the layers of meaning behind symbols accompanying cave art around the world, and how they represent flickers of early language and symbolism. 

Join the author herself as she celebrates this monumental achievement right here in our store.
