A Fantastic Local Author


Local author Ayelet WaldmanOne of my new favorite authors is Ayelet Waldman. My mom recommended her novel, Daughter’s Keeper to me a while ago and I finally got around to reading it this summer. Set in Berkeley, this novel about a mother and daughter is enthralling. You may even recognize some of the settings!

Her Newest Book

Over the summer, Ayelet Waldman published a new book, Red Hook Road. Beautifully written and full of imagery, this novel follows two families as they struggle to get through a tragedy. You won’t want to put it down!

A Great Speaker Too

I had a chance to see Ayelet and her husband, Michael Chabon, speak together at the California Library Association Conference in 2008. As wonderful as both of their books are, seeing them together was even better! For more information about Ayelet Waldman and her books, check out her website.
