Brentwood - Sunday June 5th at 3 PM - Nina LaCour in Conversation With Jennifer E. Smith Discusses and Signs "Yerba Buena"

Join us on Sunday June 5th 3:00 pm as we welcome back Nina LaCour (former indie bookseller at Diesel, Oakland!) to the store to discuss and sign Yerba Buena. Joining her in conversation will be Jennifer E. Smith.

This event is free to attend and will be held in the courtyard at DIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood. Masks are required to attend.

Sara Foster left her family behind and hitchhiked to LA at age 16. Years later, she takes a job as a bartender at Yerba Buena and uses the herb that got her through her journey to mix the restaurant’s signature cocktail.
Emilie Dubois is starting her seventh year of college and working as a florist. When she takes a job arranging flowers at the glamorous Yerba Buena, she never expects to have an affair with the married owner, or to catch sight of a mysterious woman behind the bar.
Emilie and Sara’s stories intertwine and intersect, but will the timing ever be right for their connection to bloom?
