That Paris Year book coverCongratulations to journalist, poet, essayist, traveler, and writing instructor Joanna Biggar, whose new novel, That Paris Year, has inspired a lively west coast debut. All are invited to celebrate with food, music, and Paris-style ambiance at the reading.

SF Book Passage at the Ferry Building, Monday, July 12, beginning at 6 p.m.

Joanna will read from That Paris Year, a “novel in which intellect, eroticism, and art reverberate from the page to the heartbeat of the City of Light, Joanna Biggar has written an American book with the sweep and elegance of French literary tradition.”

“Written with heart, humor, and an ironic, yet humane hindsight, That Paris Year is a must-read for anyone of any age who has dreamt of escaping the confines of her or his personal reality – whether geographic, cultural, or psychological – to embark on a journey of self-discovery and renewal.” — Joan Mitric

James J. Patterson will read from his newly released Bermuda Shorts at the same event.
