Very happy to be joining Molly Giles, Laurie McAndish King, Mark Susnow, Catharine Bramkamp and Judie Rae at the Words off Paper writers’ event on Sunday, January 25, 2015, 3:00 p.m., at Insalata Restaurant, 120 Sir Francis Drake Blvd., San Anselmo. In their own words: “Words Off Paper is a celebration of the literary arts. It’s meant to give writers a chance to expose their work and for the community to enjoy what they share. WoffP is “genre agnostic” welcoming good writing in all forms, literary fiction, genre fiction, memoir, poetry, erotica, YA, and even the occasional singer/songwriter or mini-play.” The theme for this reading is LOVE AND OTHER DISTRACTIONS; fun, yes? I shall be reading from new work involving an encounter on a PanAm Clipper between London and Boston (via Shannon, Ireland, and Gander, Newfoundland) back in the good old turbo prop days .
WHAT SHE HAD TO DO — in the Wine Country! Join me at the Saint Helena Public Library on Thursday, 18 September, 7:00 p.m. I’ll be reading from my latest novel, signing, and discussing the pros and cons of turning memoir into fiction. 1492 Library Lane, St. Helena, 94574. Note: This is Elsie, the resident Library Cat, who will greet you. She is famous.
