San Francisco, CA - Booksmith - Bookswap 2.0

Join me at Booksmith on July 28 at 7 PM for Bookswap 2.0, a new and improved version of a much-beloved event. Improved how, you say? Tickets are now only $10, and this includes an open bar and snacks! To have fun, all you have to do is show up with ten bucks, and if you're interested in swapping books with friends or strangers, bring a copy of a book that loosely fits the theme of exile. You'll get 20% off anything you decide to buy that night and will leave with some new titles on your must-read list.

In addition, I will read from the recently released paperback of The Girl Who Slept with God and we'll all hang out and discuss the books we brought. It promises to be a great night! Hope to see you all there!
