Isabel Allende & Elaine Petrocelli - My Bookstore: Writers Celebrate Their Favorite Places to Browse, Read, and Shop

Saturday, November 17, 2012 - 7:00pm
 “The only place as comforting as a friendly bookstore is probably your grandmother’s kitchen.”
- Isabel Allende in her essay about Book Passage, Corte Madera, CA
 
Bestselling author Isabel Allende and Book Passage owner Elaine Petrocelli invite you to peek behind the scenes at Book Passage. See how a bookstore really works and meet the people who make it all happen. We'll celebrate the publication of My Bookstore: Writers Celebrate Their Favorite Places to Browse, Read, and Shop ($23.95). We admit our favorite chapter is the one in which Isabel Allende writes about Book Passage (her favorite bookstore), but many famous authors contributed wonderful chapters about great independent bookstores all over the country. Wine and cheese will be served: join us and toast independent bookselling!
