March 2016 book selection

Posts About A Small Indiscretion 

February 10, 2016

It was very nice to get back in the groove with our first Face to Face Bookclub meeting last night. Good to see so many familiar faces.

In March, we have another opportunity to hear an author in conversation with CapRadio host Donna Apidone. Jan Ellison will be with us on March 8 at 6pm. 

A Small Indiscretion is the story of a California woman who, at the age of 19, spent a year in London. Drinking and wild romance were involved. Now she is a wife, mother and lighting designer in San Francisco, and a family tragedy forces her to look back at her misspent youth. 

Jan Ellison is an O. Henry Prize winner, and this book was named as one of the Best of The Year by The San Francisco Chronicle. 
You won't want to miss this interview on March 8 at 6pm.
