This Thursday, local author Hilary Zaid will be stopping by Diesel Bookstore in Brentwood to read, discuss, and sign her novel, “Paper is White.” Starting at 6:30, Zaid will join local playwright Josh Gershick to talk about her novel and take audience questions. Per Diesel’s website:
“When oral historian Ellen Margolis and her girlfriend decide to get married, Ellen realizes that she can’t go through with a wedding until she tells her grandmother. There’s only one problem: her grandmother is dead.
As the two young women beat their own early path toward marriage equality, Ellen’s longing to plumb that voluminous silence draws her into a clandestine entanglement with a wily Holocaust survivor–a woman with more to hide than tell–and a secret search for buried history. If there is to be a wedding Ellen must decide: How much do you need to share to be true to the one you love?
Set in ebullient, 1990s Dot-com era San Francisco, Paper is White is a novel about the gravitational pull of the past and the words we must find to make ourselves whole.”
