reading & booksigning for "Steinbeck's Ghost"
Thursday, October 9 at 7:30 pm
"Steinbeck's Ghost" is new novel for young adults from San Francisco writer Lewis Buzbee. It tells the story of young Travis Williams, who thinks he sees a ghost in John Steinbeck’s childhood home while campaigning to save the public library in Salinas. With touches of magical realism, Buzbee resurrects Steinbeck’s characters and scenes to relate a beautifully told story embued with a love of books and reading.
Well known Bay Area author Lewis Buzbee is a former bookseller and publisher’s sales rep, and the author of the acclaimed adult memoir, "The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop," which was published in 2006. A native Californian, he lives in San Francisco with his wife and daughter. This is his first book for children.
