Festivals, Caregiving & Salvation Get Booked

occbf.JPGOur Facebook users shared a host of literary events for our regular Booked feature.

Author Cindy Laverty will read portions and autograph her new book, Caregiving: Eldercare Made Clear & Simple at Chaucer’s Bookstore (Santa Barbara, CA) on Thursday, September 2nd from 7:00pm-9:00pm. She invites everybody to stop by and say hi!

Sigrid Nunez will be at 82nd Street Barnes & Noble (New York, NY) promoting her new book, Salvation City on Thursday, September 16th starting 7:00pm. Salvation City is a story of love, betrayal, and forgiveness. It is about spiritual and moral growth, and the consolation of art. It is about belief—belief in God and belief in self.
