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.
Easily one of San Francisco's most iconic authors, Armistead Maupin has recently penned his own personal tale of finding his Logical Family (Harper) in the city. On October 11th, spend the evening with Maupin at the Jewish Community Center of SF (tickets at jccsf.org).
