In our culminating event for the 2014 One Book One Marin selection Farm City ($16.00), author Novella Carpenter is joined by KQED “Forum” host Michael Krasny for a discussion of her work. Ambivalent about repeating her parents’ disastrous mistakes, yet drawn to the idea of backyard self-sufficiency, Carpenter decided that it might be possible to have it both ways. Farm City is an unforgettably charming memoir, full of hilarious moments, fascinating farmers’ tips, and a great deal of heart.
Book Passage is pleased to work with the Institute of Leadership Studies at Dominican University of California in San Rafael to present these outstanding events sponsored by Private Ocean.
