Join us for lunch with Belva Davis as she discusses her memoir Never in My Wildest Dreams — the story of a journalist who helped change the face of television news, a history-maker, an award-winning reporter, and a pioneering feminist. Born to a 15-year old Louisiana laundress during the Great Depression and raised in the projects of Oakland, Davis overcame abuse, racism, and sexism to become the first black female news anchor on the West Coast. Davis reported on some of the most explosive stories of the past decades, including the rise and fall of the Black Panthers, the Jonestown massacre, the Moscone/Milk murders, and the onset of the AIDS epidemic. She recounts her interviews with world leaders, including Fidel Castro and three U.S. presidents.

Davis has traveled the world reporting on politics, terrorism, racial and gender issues, and the role of art and culture in increasing human understanding. She has anchored at three major network affiliates, and currently hosts a highly respected political affairs program on KQED-TV in San Francisco.

Book Passage hosts literary luncheons with celebrated authors at our Marin store. These events are catered by the outstanding Insalata’s Restaurant of San Anselmo.
