We're pleased to welcome back Bay Area bookstore owner Bill Petrocelli for a reading, discussion, and signing of his latest novel, "Through the Bookstore Window" on Friday, April 20th at 7:30 p.m.
Gina Perini manages a bookstore in one of San Francisco’s most lively neighborhoods. Although she thrives in her world of books, her harrowing escape from the war in the Balkans years earlier remains fresh in her mind. There are still those who are searching for her and who are intent on vengeance. Gina suddenly gets news that someone from her past is still alive—someone she had given up hope of finding. This sets in motion a chain of events that will stretch across the country and push her love and resourcefulness to the limit.
Through the Bookstore Window grapples with the grim effects of war and violence while exploring how love can transcend age, gender, background, and—perhaps—the readers’ expectations.
