4 Great Author Events in the Next 2 Weeks at VHOB

Get ready for 4 outstanding authors who are making their way to Village House of Books this week and next.  We'll do them in order:

#1 - Thursday, November 21, Katie Hafner, Mother Daughter Me.  As many of you know by now, I loved this book.  I just finished it Saturday and had to write a review immediately.  I have seen Katie read from her book and talk about her experiences living with her mother and daughter back in 2009.  It's a fascinating story, and the book makes you want to give Katie a hug.

#2 - Saturday, November 23, Alice Rhea Mitchell, My Mama's Closet.  I haven't read it yet, but 4 reviewers on Amazon each gave it a 5/5.  It talks about a young girl who goes into her mother's closet and finds clothes hiding there for her.  It's a 40-page narrative poem.  Sounds very cool, no?

#3 - Friday, November 29 (Black Friday), David Kinch, An Edible Reflection.  All of us locals (and many of us nationals, too) know that David is the chef-owner of Manresa (conveniently located immediately next door to VHOB).  He will be at VHOB from 2-4 signing his new cookbook.  We have many luminaries that live in our town and the greater Bay Area.  David is certainly one of them.

#4 - Saturday, November 30, Pascal Lee, Mission to Mars.  This is ostensibly a children's author because he has written a children's book about travel to Mars.  But I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Pascal will most definitely appeal to adults.  Here is a very brief bio (the actual bio is way longer):

Pascal Lee is co-founder and chairman of the Mars Institute, a planetary scientist at theSETI Institute, and the Principal Investigator of the Haughton-Mars Project (HMP) at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California.

Are you totally intrigued by now?

Okay, people, let's get those butts in the seats.  These are authors you will want to experience.  I hope to see you at some/all of these events over next 2 weeks.


  1. Wow ... lots of terrific events coming up! You'll be a busy man. I'm sure they'll all be great.

  2. Just want you to know that if you get to come back to Northern California, that we will fit you in whenever it works for you - even if we already have an author event scheduled for the week you're here - guaranteed!
