Bookswap at Booksmith


With special guests Caroline Paul, author of East, Wind, Rain, and SF Writers’ Grotto resident, and Justine Sharrock, author of Tortured: When Good Soldiers Do Bad Things, and also a Grottoite.

For our Back to School special edition Bookswap, bring a book that moved you at some point in your education. Maybe your third grade teacher read it to you, maybe it was the first novel you read, or something assigned to you in high school or college. Whatever it was, it deepened your love for books somehow.

As always, we'll have delicious food, free-flowing wine, fantastic company and lots of laughter. We look forward to celebrating the end of the summer with you!
