Author Events at VHOB for the Month of April

We have a ton of events in April, and they run the gamut in terms of content and style. They all start at 7:00, except for the VHOB Book Club meeting on the 16th.  Here they are, in order:

Tuesday, April 1, VHOB Book Club - Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, by and with Beth Hoffman.  This will be the 1st time that we have an author appear by phone (she lives in Kentucky).  Discussion goes from 6:30-7:00, and Beth will join us at 7:00.  This event is open to everybody.  You can join us for the discussion or just come at 7:00 to talk to Beth.

Tuesday, April 8, poetry workshop - Erica Goss, Los Gatos Poet Laureate, will be conducting a workshop.  Please go to for more details about the workshop, or just to connect with Erica.

Wednesday, April 9, Jan Harwood - the author of Dangerous Women:  A Raging Granny Mystery.  Come hear our 2nd octogenarian this year (she's 1 year younger than Betty Auchard), and Jan's birthday is July 21, one day before mine (I know how much you wanted to know my birth date!).

Wednesday, April 16, Tracy Guzeman - The Gravity of Birds is our in-house VHOB Book Club event of the month.  Tracy has already been to VHOB once, and you will want to see her, especially if you didn't have a chance the 1st time.  And, as before, everybody is welcome for the discussion and/or the Q&A with Tracy.

Friday, April 18, Kim Yen Nguyen, PharmD - come here the amazing true story of a woman who came to America during the Vietnam War and who, ultimately, raised 3 autistic children - by herself!  I think we all want to meet this remarkable woman.

Thursday, April 24, Jenn Castro - she has been to VHOB before, reading her book to children.  This time, she will read to both children and adults in anticipation of Mother's Day.

Tuesday, April 29, Edward Mendez - this ex-San Jose native, who currently lives in New Mexico, has written a novel called One Calamitous Spring:  A Novel of Santa Fe. Welcome back one of our own (even if it's only for 1 night).

Wednesday, April 30, Kate Mitchell - her book, Fashioning Women, "speaks to women of all ages about the conflicting messages we receive to attain the feminine ideal."  Sounds fascinating, doesn't it?

We've got an unbelievable line-up for you in April.  We hope to see you numerous times(!) during the month.


  1. It will be fun talking with y'all on April 1st. I'm looking forward to it!
