From Towne Center's owner:
We are very excited to welcome bestselling author, Sarah Dunant. She is the author of bookclub favorites: In the Company of the Courtesan and the Birth of Venus. Her newest, Sacred Hearts, is set in a convent in Renaissance Italy. I loved it! Learn more about Sarah: http://www.sarahdunant.com/Sarah-Du
Sarah is on book tour from England so let's show her that warm Tri Valley Hospitality! There will be refreshments, interesting dialogue, reading, and autographing. It's free. Reservations are helpful but not required.
Synchronized Chaos note:
Yes, this is the heart of American suburbia - but people of all different kinds of subcultures and from all different kinds of countries love Sarah Dunant for her writing craftsmanship, technical skill, creativity, and incredible historical research without losing sight of the need to create readable suspense. In the Company of the Courtesan concerns whether people/things need to be 'true' to be beautiful and useful...one of my lifetime favorite books for both narrative and philosophy. Come on out and support a local bookstore and this dedicated author!
