Book Club Fun

I had the pleasure of spending time with two book groups this weekend.  Thanks for having me, ladies–and gentleman.

An Oakland book group. More homemade cookies, more wine. These women knew my book better than I did! We had a great discussion about class issues, addiction, astronomy, Oakland vs. San Francisco, etc. Thanks for having me!

Met with this lovely group in San Francisco. We met in a group member's office building in the financial district. Wine, cheese, homemade cookies. FUN.Met with this lovely group in San Francisco.
