Rebecca Solnit - An Evening at the Lodge

Tuesday, August 6, 2013 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Please join Green Apple Books and the San Francisco Elks Lodge in welcoming Rebecca Solnit to the historic Elk’s Lodge on Tuesday August 6th from 7:00 – 8:30 to celebrate the publication of her enchanting new book, The Faraway Nearby, a meandering exploration of empathy and the power of storytelling.

Rebecca Solnit is one of San Francisco’s greatest literary treasures, author of more than a dozen books, and our best hope for a Nobel Prize in Literature.  The San Francisco Elk’s Lodge, located on Union Square, is a normally private club housed within a stunning historic building.  There can be no finer combination of cocktails and conversation than this . . . and you have been invited!

Enjoy a rare opportunity to kick your heels in one of The City’s finest secret spots, while having a drink with the woman who gave us the most unique and well-loved book yet on San Francisco, Infinite City.  Don’t miss your chance to experience an evening that will be long remembered by all that attend.  Get a signed copy of The Faraway Nearby, and then raise a glass in celebration – it’s going to be that kind of night.  Plus, you don’t even know yet that we have a special guest in Dawn Oberg, who will be entertaining us on the piano.

Don’t miss this very special evening with Rebecca Solnit and Dawn Oberg; but if you simply can’t get there, please let Green Apple Books know, and we’ll have a copy of The Faraway Nearby personally inscribed for you – it’s just how we roll.
