Author Paul Chutkow reads from his award-winning, Zelda, The Queen of Paris,and shares stories of his odyssey -- and Zelda’s! -- from India to Paris to the Napa Valley. He’ll tell us about his memorable encounters with Mother Teresa, Ernest Hemingway’s son Jack, and Robert Mondavi, which gave birth to The Oxbow School and Robert’s celebrated memoir, Harvests of Joy. Paul will also talk about creating Val de Grace Books, the Napa Valley-based publishing company that has produced a host of books on American wine, business and culture -- including Tom Hummel’s Journey Through Literary America and Monroe Katz’s Dare To Create. Tom and Monroe will be on hand to chat and sign their books. Wine will be served!

Monroe Katz cuts right to the heart of it: "The artist must find his own way to say what he has to say in paint, pencil or clay, but he has to be in a proper frame of mind, as a passionate artist, playing, experimenting, agonizing over subject matter, daring, failing, cutting free, trusting his or her inner voice, being in the ring rather than in the grandstand."
