Edan Lepucki

Last night, we had the absolute pleasure of welcoming Edan Lepucki to our store for her new novel, California. This was a much-anticipated event for many reasons. A few weeks ago, author Sherman Alexie recommended California while he was a guest on The Colbert Report. A few days later, Colbert mentioned the book again on his […]
