Book Shop West Portal June 28 2011

June 11, 2011

This week I had to begin with preparing all the appearances of this month.  The last event this month will be held at the Book Shop West Portal in San Francisco.

I visited the book store last week and the moment I set foot into the store I immediately got lost in the world of books. Needless to say I didn’t leave the store without buying a book and I am looking forward to be part of the program on Tuesday June 28   7 PM

West Portal Book Shop   at 80  West Portal Ave, San Francisco, CA  

The program is organized by the WNBA (Women National Book Association) where I am helping out with organizing future book readings and book introductions at West Portal and/or other independent book stores in San Francisco.

The shrinking number of independent book stores need our support so please join us for this first event where two of our WNBA authors present their work as per below invitation. We will have a little wine reception and short readings with following Q& A sessions. I would be happy to see some familiar faces in the store. It will be fun and inspirational.

See you there.

West Portal Book Shop reception

Birgit Soyka and Teresa LeYung-Ryan
Tuesday, June 28 at 7 PM

Women’s National Book Association (WNBA) celebrates “Rebuild Your Life Month” with a wine reception and a special reading.

Birgit Soyka will read from To Drink the Wild Air: One Woman’s Quest to Touch the Horizon, her account of being the only female breaking into the male dominated sport of motorcycle racing in California, winning a championship against all odds and encountering injuries, destitution, homelessness, and the threat of deportation.

Teresa LeYung-Ryan will read from Love Made of Heart, a novel that explores the life of Ruby Lin, an adult child of mentally ill parents. The author will discuss ways to speak openly about mental illness stigmas and how to access resources for affected families. She is also the author of Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase in 22 Days.
