Original post made by abbyboyd on Sep 18, 2007


This book is the 2008 Silcon Valley Reads selection.
It is available now at the Palo Alto City Library. People all over Santa Clara County will be reading it and going to events planned by libraries.

Get your book group to read it and come to the events planned in February 2008. The author will be speaking, Red Panda Acrobats will perform in South Palo Alto, and book discussions will be held at the Palo Alto City Libraries.
