Press Release_

Viana La Place, author of “My Italian Garden: More Than 125 Seasonal Recipes from a Garden Inspired by Italy,” will be at Readers’ Books on Sunday, September 23rd, from 4:30-6 p.m., to talk about an Italian garden as a state of mind. La Place relishes meals that require only a few of the freshest ingredients. In this book, she brings the earth to the table for readers who want to cook delicious dishes with minimum effort and maximum flavor. She says that cooking from the garden is the most uncomplicated way to cook and, reminding us that the most satisfying food is the simplest, she fills her book with seasonal offerings such as New Fava Bean and Spring Greens Soup, Panini with Grilled Zucchini and Ricotta Salata, and Meyer Lemon Gelato with Fresh Figs and Pistachios. The book is charmingly illustrated and the author firmly believes that any patch of land can become an Italian garden.

La Plante is also the author of “Cucina Fresca,” “Cucina Rustica,” and “Panini, Bruschetta, Crostini.” She lives in San Francisco.

Readers’ Books is at 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 707-939-1779.

Graham Hancock, author of “Supernatural: Meetings with the Ancient Teachers of Mankind,” will be at Readers’ Books on Tuesday, September 25th, at 7:30 p.m. Hancock has traveled the world to investigate the nature of consciousness and reality. In the book he looks at the mysteries of the Sphynx, the Unicorn, and the Centaur; he examines medicinal and pharmacological plants and their effect on our physical and mental well-being through history; and he shows how ceremonies to communicate with the dead developed.

Hancock is an unconventional thinker who raises interesting questions about humanity’s history and prehistory and offers a popular challenge to the entrenched views of orthodox scholars. He is the author of “Heaven’s Mirror,” “Underworld: Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age,” “The Sign and the Seal,” and is a public lecturer and television producer. His works have been translated into 27 foreign languagues.

Press Release_

Linda Morganstein, author of “Ordinary Furies: An Alexis Pope Mystery,” will be at Readers’ Books on Thursday, September 27th, at 7:30 p.m.

Morganstein’s heroine thinks she’s found a life of guaranteed security and comfort, but her husband’s accidental death casts her into self-imposed solitary confinement in her Northern California suburban mansion. An unexpected incident jerks her out of her isolation and lethargy. She enters the refreshingly frantic world of restaurant resort cooking in the “funky chic” town of Guerneville, CA. Things go well and then not so well as she is forced to face up to her own involvement in her husbande’s death! A great read for mystery fans.

Although the author now lives in the Midwest, she lived in Sonoma for many years and still thinks of it as home.

Readers’ Books is at 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 707-939-1779.

Victoria Zackheim, editor of “The Other Woman, Twenty-One Wives, Lovers, and Others Talk Openly about Sex,” will be at Readers’ Books on Friday, September 28th, at 7:30 p.m., with three of the contributors to her book: Jane Smiley, Lynn Freed, and Pam Houston.

Twenty-one writers, including Zackheim, examine the lot of the other woman from every point of view. Some of the contributors are unrepentant adulterers. Some have vivid tales of the damage the other woman wrought, some were the other woman. Zackheim has never been wronged by the other woman, but realized that the phrase itself is a potent feature of every woman’s experience.

Zackheim is also the author of “For Keeps: Women Tell the Truth about Their Bodies, Growing Older, and Acceptance” which will be published in November.

Readers’ Books is at 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 707-939-1779.
