Join us for a celebration of the late Lucia Berlin's newly published short story collection, A Manual for Cleaning Women, with editor Stephen Emerson, Bobbie Louise Hawkins, Jennifer Dunbar Dorn, Keith Abbott, Staci Amend, Steve Katz, Erika Krouse, Peter Michelson, and Jenny Shank on Tuesday, October 13th at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
A Manual for Cleaning Women compiles the best work of the legendary short-story writer Lucia Berlin. With the grit of Raymond Carver, the humor of Grace Paley, and a blend of wit and melancholy all her own, Berlin crafts miracles from the everyday, uncovering moments of grace in the Laundromats and halfway houses of the American Southwest, in the homes of the Bay Area upper class, among switchboard operators and struggling mothers, hitchhikers and bad Christians.
Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased in advance, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
