For those of us missing book clubs but heeding advice to avoid in-person gatherings as COVID-19 cases spike, Nowhere Bookshop and the San Antonio Book Festival have a treat in store.
On July 15, the store and festival will jointly hosts a Zoom conversation
between Clay Smith, SABF's Literary Director
, and Lara Prescott, author of The Secrets We Kept
The two will discuss Prescott's book, a New York Times Bestseller
based on a true story. The novel weaves together two seemingly disparate subjects: the origin of Boris Pasternak's novel Dr. Zhivago
and a story of two female spies working for the CIA in the 1950s. However, they're more interwoven than may appear at first glance.
The $5 ticket for the online event will be accompanied by a $5 coupon to purchase The Secrets We Kept
in paperback from Nowhere Bookshop.
With a few weeks to spare prior to the event, there's plenty of time to nab a copy and read up, especially now that Nowhere is offering curbside pickup
$5, 6-7 p.m. Wednesday July 15, Zoom, nowherebookshop.com.
