Mariel a la Mode

Mariel a la Mode is joining the September 20 Progressive Reading with her unique blend of singing and striptease!

West of Kabul, East of New York

Tamim Ansary's book, West of Kabul, East of New York has been chosen to be San Francisco's One City One Book read for 2008. Here is some praise West of Kabul, East of New York has garned:

“A book that steadies our skittering compass...It speaks with a modesty of tone and is all the more resonant for that reason....[It] sees things we cannot make out, and need to.” —The New York Times

“[An] emotional and moving memoir, driven by passion and intelligence...It breaks the heart.”
—The Times-Picayune (New Orleans)

In conjunction, the San Francisco Public Library has many events lined up. Please join us for a book mob at the Ferry Building on September 6, 11:45 am. Bring your copy of West of Kabul, East of New York. And if you can't make that, check here for more events.
