Participants will meet and share an intimate conversation with the authors of a gripping look deep into 1960s and '70s San Francisco; a vivid, intimate tale centered on an intrepid world traveler and her personal baggage; a raucous yet art-learned mystery, by a "sweetly demented" author, in which Toulouse-Lautrec and his sidekick seek Van Gogh's murderer; and a fascinating novel starring a princess in 16th-century Iran, negotiating court politics and tribal animosities with her closest advisor, a eunuch. Pamela Feinsilber is a book editor and writing consultant, and blogs about the arts for Huffington Post and Examiner.com.
