Join me on Nov. 5 at Book Passage Corte Madera for a lively panel on women in the world of books.

One hundred years ago, before women had even won the right to vote, an organization called Women’s National Book Association — the WNBA — was founded to support women writers, booksellers, publishers and editors.

Today, the organization continues the tradition with a network of writing coaches, publishers, authors — women in the world of books. Its local chapter, WNBA-San Francisco, will celebrate its 100 years of women and books on Sunday, Nov. 9, at the Book Passage book store in Corte Madera.

More information at Women in the World of Words.

I’ll be there and so will a slew of local writers, including Brenda Knight and Patricia V. Davis. See you there!
