Light posts again this week. The sun is shining in the Bay Area, it’s balmy – so unlike summer – and my daughter will have her bat mitzvah on Saturday. So there’s so much to do, so much left undone, that I think it’s a week to concentrate on family, not books. That said I hope to hear Bill Keller, the executive editor of the New York Times, talk tonight at the Commonwealth Club. And I'd really like to hear Kevin Boyle talk at Book Passage on Wednesday. He's the author of Arc of Justice: A Saga of Race, Civil Rights, and Murder in the Jazz Age, which won the National Book Award this year and is one of my all-time favorite non-fiction books. But time is scarce, unfortunately.
