|Jane Green book tour|
fundraiser for our local North County Hospice
North County Hospice
Jane Green is currently on book tour and has agreed to appear here in "small" Healdsburg, to participate in fundraising for our local North County Hospice that recently opened in Healdsburg. Her new book "Promises to Keep" resonates with the work of hospice staff, and the main character, is loosing her battle to breast cancer. We all have friends or family that have been affected by this terrible decease, and we are hoping to raise funds for the hospice, so that they can continue their wonderful work.
Here is the "run down"
New York Times Best Selling Author Jane Green to appear at Baci Café & Wine Bar, Healdsburg to raise funds for North County Hospice in Healdsburg
Baci Café & Wine Bar which opened in Healdsburg on April 1st, 2010 is hosting a fundraiser to benefit North County Hospice. The event is taking place on Tuesday, July 13th, 2010 from 3:00 to 7:00pm and will feature a book signing and talk by Jane Green, as well as a wine & food reception and raffle.
Jane Green has written twelve novels, including several New York Times bestsellers. She is the author of Straight Talking, Jemima J., Mr. Maybe, Bookends, Babyville, To Have and to Hold, The Other Woman, Swapping Lives, Second Chance, The Beach House and Dune Road. Winner of a Cosmopolitan Fun Fearless Fiction award in 2007, Jane, a native Londoner, now lives in Connecticut with her husband, their blended family of six children and many animals.
"We are thrilled that New York Times Best Selling author Jane Green will be in town to promote her new book "Promises to Keep" while raising funds for the St Joseph Health System hospice programs, which include North County Hospice, Memorial Hospice and Hospice of Petaluma. The timing of Ms. Green's trip to northern California gives us the opportunity to join in the promotion of her new book and celebrate the opening of North County Hospice in Healdsburg. We are delighted to be inviting the community to join us to hear Ms. Green's dynamic talk about her book and life experiences. "Promises to Keep" resonates with the work of hospice staff and volunteers as they enter into the lives of patients and families. Each day they hear life stories while supporting family members and friends who surround and care for loved ones. This time in life, often measured in moments, reminds us of how precious each day is," said Judy Ryder, Hospice Director.
The event takes place at Baci Café & Wine Bar, 336 Healdsburg Ave, Healdsburg and is generously underwritten by Lisbeth Holmefjord, owner of Baci Café & Wine Bar and Premier Cru Creative.
