Book Launch with Laurie Ann Doyle & Special Guest Alia Volz

October 25, 2017
7:00 pm

Join award-winning Berkeley author, Laurie Ann Doyle, who will be in conversation with Alia Volz at Green Apple Books on the Park in San Francisco to celebrate the launch of her debut collection, World Gone Missing. NY Times bestselling author, Edan Lepucki, praised Doyle for delivering "astute portrayals of people who desire connection, hope, and renewal." Set against the backdrop of San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area, the collection provides a sense of familiarity while featuring a cast of memorable characters struggling to fill the void of a vanished loved one. From the newly married couple anxiously searching for a brother who simply didn't come home one night, to the San Francisco businesswoman increasingly obsessed with the high school friend whose mother drove the girls apart years before, to the insurance clerk on her way to meet her son's lost birth mother, Doyle's writing vividly evokes the loss and liberation absence can bring.
