Books Inc Flyer

A reading from my debut novel, Things Unsaid, on Wednesday, March 2, at 7:00 pm at BooksInc, in the Town & Country shopping center in Palo Alto, on El Camino Real across from Stanford University.     I am one of five authors (Donna Stoneham, Connie Hanstedt, Kate Jessica Raphael, and Rita Gardner) who  read for five minutes, followed by a discussion to celebrate Women’s History Month.  Wendy Tokunaga, award –winning author of Love in Translation and other novels, was the moderator.  This was a lot of fun!

IN HER OWN WORDS … Local authors will come together in Palo Alto for an evening of stories — both factual and fictional — as part of a panel presented by She Writes Press and Books Inc. The event will include Diana Y. Paul (“Things Unsaid”); Kate Raphael (“Murder Under the Bridge: A Palestine Mystery”); Constance Hanstedt (“Don’t Leave Yet: How My Mother’s Alzheimer’s Opened My Heart”); Rita M. Gardner (“The Coconut Latitudes: Secrets, Storms and Survival in the Caribbean”); and Donna Stoneham (“The Thriver’s Edge: Seven Keys to Transform the Way You Live, Love and Lead”). The event will take place at 7 p.m. on March 2, at Books Inc., 74 Town & Country Village, Palo Alto.
