HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Book Passage!
Marin's Queen of Magical Realism - Isabel
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to Book Passage's owners Bill and Elaine Petrochelli. We enjoyed their special kick-off our celebration of their 40th anniversary on April 30th. Renowned authors Isabel Allende (The House of the Spirits, The Japanese Lover, Ripper) and Anthony Marra (A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, The Tsar of Love and Techno) held a conversation in the event room, followed by remarks from Book Passage founders Elaine & Bill. Champagne. A reception followed where fans spoke to the authors. At the reception we chatted with the lovely Isabel Allende, who agreed to a future interview with MillValleyLit. Our friend, Jennie Marchant of Fairfax (Marchant Realty) joined us with Elaine and Bill Petrochelli. Elaine told us an amusing Robin Williams Book Passage anecdote and Bill spoke of writing.
