LEFT COAST WRITERS BOOK PARTY: Joanna Biggar, Author of Melanie’s Song
Come to Book Passage in the Ferry Plaza and visit with an author and a character in her novel!
Joanna Biggar will be in conversation with one of her characters in Melanie’s Song: Evelyn, in the person of Ms. Chris Berardo. They will discuss what is real and what isn’t and what it feels like to become a character in a novel. What’s more: you can join in on the conversation, enjoy some wine and snacks and the Left Coast Writers literary vibe on the lovely San Francisco waterfront. Hope to see you there!
Joanna Biggar has traveled solo in the most remote areas of China, chaired a school board in Ghana, worked as a journalist in Washington, D.C., and taught school kids in Oakland, California. She is a member of the Society of Woman Geographers, mother of five, grandmother of eight, all of whom love books! Joanna’s first novel, That Paris Year, is written in English but captures that French novel feel in a truly classic style. If you’ve been to Paris, she will welcome you back, if you haven’t, you may just want to pack your bags! That Paris Year is a truly splendid read! Now, in Autumn of 2019, she follows Melanie, the heroine of That Paris Year, to California in her long-awaited sequel, Melanie’s Song.
