This Thursday, venture to Sausalito’s quirky Studio 333 to kick off the sixth season of Why There Are Words, a monthly event featuring a selection of readings by renowned and respected authors.
This year’s inaugural event is headed up by Tom Barbash, who has penned a slew of novels and short stories that are well-loved by the people at Amazon; his 2003 nonfiction book, On Top of the World: Cantor Fitzgerald, Howard Lutnick & 9/11: A Story of Loss and Renewal, was a New York Times best seller. Also present will be award winning author Ann Packer — whose short fiction has appeared in The New Yorker — Rob Roberge, Jason Roberts, Lalita Tademy (featured frequently in various media outlets for her three historical novels) and Ayelet Waldman, author of best-selling novels, personal essays and profiles for the likes of The New York Times and Vogue.
Whether you’re a writer yourself or simply a fan of the form, one trip to this event will have you coming back for more.
