A local branch of the American Association of University Women is sponsoring a joint appearance at the Rockridge library on Feb. 23 of three Bay Area novelists whose books are set in the City of Light.
The literary line-up includes Ellen Sussman talking about her New York Times bestselling French Lessons, San Francisco writer Cara Black on one of her Aimee Leduc private-eye mysteries, Murder at the Lanterne Rouge, and Oakland author Jacqueline Luckett on her time-leaping Passing Love.
The event, from 1:30-3 p.m., is sponsored by the Oakland-Piedmont chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). Books will be available for signing by the authors.
The flyer for the events offers the following description of the three authors:
- Jacqueline Luckett wrote Passing Love, a story that goes back and forth between contemporary Paris and the jazz scene post-WWII and Black American expats.
- Cara Black wrote Murder at the Lanterne Rouge, the twelfth Aimee Leduc Investigations — one plot intertwined with two themes.
- Ellen Sussman wrote French Lessons, telling the story of three French tutors and their students as they spend a day in Paris.
