SOULS May 4th at Laurel Bookstore


Screen Shot 2016-04-07 at 9.15.08 AMA book of mine is never truly launched until I’ve read at my neighborhood bookstore!

Laurel Bookstore is no longer in my neighborhood; they’ve moved ‘up’ to downtown Oakland and have become the city’s new literary anchor. My reading on May 4th celebrates the release of The Souls of Her Feet in bookstores everywhere. Order it up at a bookstore near you!

See you at Laurel!
