Upcoming events for The Murderer’s Maid: A Lizzie Borden Novel
Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017: Why There Are Words reading series hosted by author Peg Alford Pursell. Held at Studio 333, 333 Caledonia St. in Sausalito with seven authors. Doors open at 7pm; readings begin at 7:15. Entry fee is $10 at the door, though donations to WTAW, a 501(c)3 nonprofit independent publishing press, are always welcome. Books from all authors available through Borderlands at the event.
Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017: 5-6 p.m. InsideStorytime DELUGE, part of Litquake’s Lit Crawl, at Muddy Waters, 521 Valencia, between 16th and 17th streets, San Francisco (please note: there are two Muddy Waters, and this is not the one at 24th and Valencia. Says the witty organizer James Warner, “Statistically at least one of you will go there instead by mistake, and if the past is any guide there will be a socialist workers meeting and a philosophy seminar in process there… but no Crawl event.”) Litquake is San Francisco’s enormously awesome weeklong literary festival and the Lit Crawl moving from pub to pub just adds liquor to an already fun evening. “Get drunk on words!” Okay, Muddy Waters is a coffeehouse, not a pub, but you do what you have to do.
Monday, Oct. 23, 2017: 6-9 p.m. EBUG Local Author Event, Montclair Presbyterian Church, 5701 Thornhill Drive., Oakland, CA. $10, ticketed event includes light appetizers and wine. Confirmed authors: Cara Black, Erika Mailman, Sylvia Brownrigg, Risa Nye and Ros McIntosh.
Friday, Oct. 27, 2017: 6-9 p.m. Book launch at the Pardee Home Museum, 672 Eleventh St. in downtown Oakland. Launch of House of Bellaver which is set in a fictional version of the Pardee Home (we’ll have limited edition print copies) and The Murderer’s Maid with slideshow lecture, light refreshments and a chance to explore the house which is reputed to be… wait for it…haunted. This event will be ticketed in advance; watch for more details later.
Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017: 2 p.m. Murderer’s Maid reading and signing, Book Passage bookstore in the Ferry Building, #1 at the foot of Market Street, San Francisco. Free.
Sunday, Oct. 29, 2017: 3 p.m. Murderer’s Maid reading and signing, Diesel Books, 5433 College Ave., Oakland. Free. There will be cupcakes with tiny hatchets burrowed into them: poor taste? But they will be delicious.
