The San Francisco chapter of Women’s National Book Association is proud to announce a special event celebrating National Reading Group Month this October. Please join us for what promises to be an exceptional afternoon.
About the authors:In A Life in Stitches, Rachael Herron tells us that when life unravels there’s always a way to knit it back together again. Each story, inspired by something she knits or something knitted for her, will speak to anyone who has ever picked up a pair of needles. Herron received her MFA in writing from Mills College, and has been knitting since she was five-years-old. It’s more than a hobby; it’s a way of life.
Touch and Go, Thad Nodine’s first novel and winner of the Dana Award for the Novel, is a rich and rangy story about the careful and careless ways we treat each other—and ourselves—in a fast-paced, changing world. Kevin, the novel’s blind narrator, is one of the most perceptive figures in recent fiction. Nodine gives us a multicultural portrait of a true America.
The Women’s National Book Association launched National Reading Group Month in October of 2007 to celebrate the organization’s ninetieth birthday. This year, WNBA will continue its tradition of promoting women and the book and literacy in general by hosting events in their chapter cities: Boston, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.
