June 2017 book selection


by John Lescroart


Posts About Fatal 

May 24, 2017 | Vicki Lorini

I'm sure, since John Lescroart lives close by in Davis, we have a huge number of his fans in our audience.  John has been a member of our Community for many years, always giving his time and efforts to supporting great causes.  He has been a long time supporter of The Sacramento Public Library and even has a literary award that he gives, that has been named in honor of his father. I think it's about time we give back, so we have invited him to join us for one of our CapRadio Reads author nights.  He will be with us Tuesday, June 13 at 6pm in our Community Room.  He and Donna Apidone will be in conversation.  Join us for some wine, some terrific appetizers and a chance to ask John the questions you have always wanted to ask!

Come enjoy a one night stand with Author John Lescroart, "In Conversation" with Donna Apidone.  John Lescroart's latest book, a stand alone thriller, Fatal, starts out with a one night stand.  The rest of the book takes a look at the consequences, and there are many.  Lescroart introduces new characters to his readers in this book, and they are so enticing, I'm hoping we see some of them again.  Please join us for what is sure to be a fun evening.  Tuesday, June 13 at 6pm in our Community Room.
