Ayelet Waldman’s presentation Tuesday eve was terrific. She read from the new bestselling book and talked about FAILURE. And guess what … it was enlightening and uplifting. I love a woman unafraid. Great night at the ol’ Left Coast Writers Literary Salon! For a dose of more drama and … trauma, join the group at Book Passage in the Ferry Plaza in San Francisco as writers, Griffin Dix, Maria Finn, Diana Kelly, Marylou Schram and Paul Mchugh share tales of wonder and woe.
