The Open Book is a used book store, meeting space and event center in Grass Valley, CA.  They supplied the venue for me and fellow authors to read from our books.  Mine was Buhari — A Family Odyssey in Nepal.  Each author read for 15 minutes and the audio was recorded.  Listen here as I read from each of the three parts of my book.
