This year's fall reading list comes to you courtesy of some mighty Bay Area pen-wielders, including a few who are making magic of the memoir.
Step inside the one-track dirty mind of a teenage boy with Daniel Handler; empathize with the childhood trauma of Amy Tan; find your "logical family" with Armistead Maupin; go through cancer with Joyce Maynard; and let Dave Eggers tell your kids the real story of the Statue of Liberty.
You've got a lot of reading to do.
When former New Yorker Dave Eggers took his family to visit the Statue of Liberty in 2015, he noticed something new: "The lady was on the move." Get the story in Her Right Foot (Chronicle Books), illustrated by Shawn Harris, and meet the authors at Book Passage in Corte Madera on October 14th (bookpassage.com).
