Our "In Conversation with" series of evenings gives us a chance to learn about books from notable local book-lovers. On Tuesday, June 4th from 6:30-8 pm, Face in a Book owner Tina Ferguson talks books with Wendy Pearl, sales representative for the prestigious publisher, Penguin Random House!
After an early start as a marketing assistant and copywriter in Los Angeles, Wendy moved north to San Francisco and up the ladder in the publishing industry - and has been selling books to independent bookstores in northern California for thirty years. She's well-known for her early and enthusiastic support for many debut, unknown authors who later became household names and bestsellers. Some of her past picks are Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner and Kathryn Stockett's The Help.
Join us to learn about Wendy's experiences in the book industry and some of her top-favorite books - and get a sneak-peek at books coming out over the next year. We'll hold a raffle for books and gifts, and anyone who purchases a book on this evening can pick a free advance reader copy of a book from Wendy's collection.
Sign up today to enjoy appetizers, wine, and great conversation! Tickets are $5.
