SANTA ROSA --

Copperfield's Books welcomes friend and author Joan Frank to Montgomery Village in celebration of her two upcoming books - Late Work and Juniper Street

The discussion will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing. This is a free event. 

Masks required for in-store events.

Late Work -

Curious, ruminative, and wry, this literary autobiography tours what Rachel Kushner called the strange remove that is the life of the writer. Frank's essays cover a vast spectrum — from handling dismissive advice, facing the dilemma of thwarted ambition, and copying the generosity that inspires us, to the miraculous catharsis of letter-writing and some of the books that pull us through. Useful for writers at any stage of development, Late Work offers a seasoned artist's thinking through the exploration of issues, paradoxes, and crises of faith. Like a lively conversation with a close, outspoken friend, each piece tells its experience from the trenches.

Juniper Street -

Winner of the C&R Press 2021 Fiction Award

Reflecting on the charged, difficult passage from childhood and the arbitrary nature of personality, Juniper Street explores, in an interspersed series of snapshots, its narrator’s memory of her strange, formative adventures with her then-best friend, a spirited young artist who lives down the street. In autumnal tones, Juniper Street considers the movement of time, the selves we shed over years, and—like remembered music—a mysterious, burnished quality of inevitability about the past.

Joan Frank is the award-winning author of twelve books of literary fiction and essays including Because You Have To: A Writing Life and Try to Get Lost: Essays on Travel and Place. She lives with her husband, playwright Bob Duxbury, in the North Bay Area of California.
