Isabel Allende to read at Bookpeople in Austin

Acclaimed author Isabel Allende (House of the Spirits) will appear at Bookpeople to read from her most recent book The Japanese Lover, a love story between two people whose lives were differently torn by WWII:  one from Polish-Jewish heritage, the other Japanese-American.


Set in present-day San Francisco, it is a multi-generational story, featuring the love story of another pair from different backgrounds.  The novel promises to share Bay Area history, the inner lives of those in their eighties all captured through a passionate, immigrant lens.

Named one of the most anticipated novels of the year by New York Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar, Publishers Weekly, The Huffington Post, and more. 

SF Gate has a review of the book here.

Tickets are available at Bookpeople.
