Here’s what happened that night:
“Loved it! It was fun and tasty and informative. I learned about a new author and got a chance to buy an autographed book! Thanks ANV!” -GYI Attendee
The evening began at the VIP gathering at Lungomare Restaurant in Jack London Square, featuring drinks and lite bites. Then a beautiful ferry ride over to San Francisco’s historic Ferry Building. Once there, host DeAngela Cooks of The Mosaic Collaborative helped to create a wonderful, fun, memorable night.
Deepest gratitude to our guest author Wayétu Moore, author of “She Would Be King”, who read a powerful excerpt from her book then signed copies for our guests!
