Yes, Bill Haywood, the reporter turned reluctant sleuth, is back. When an old flame from Eritrea shows up at reporter Haywood’s door in San Francisco, he reluctantly agrees to let her stay with him. But there is no room in his life for a former paramour with a jealous husband. He would prefer weeding the garden behind his apartment, studying haiku, and smoking an occasional bowl of hashish when he isn’t working for the small, community paper that pays his salary. The murder of a shady jazz musician, Ayana’s disappearance, and the unwelcome visit by the cops shocks Haywood out of his complacency…

Bestselling SF Author of A Portrait In The Tenderloin, John Goins, will read from his latest book Coptic Cross, and a discussion will follow.ww

With homegrown insight and sensitivity, John Goins’ Coptic Cross uncovers cross sections of the City--the city of grace, the city of humor and the tragedies that shroud the landscape like fog. He not only sifts evidence of the present but gives insight into the future. John Goins honors San Francisco by removing its mask.
--Tony Robles, author of Cool Don’t Live Here No More

John Goins writes beautifully about the vanishing parts of San Francisco. Read his books and know the city behind the tourist brochures. Meet its people living in the margin of the margins. Goins is the storyteller’s storyteller who conducts the tragic and the tender into books that will keep you up all night.
--James Tracy, author of Dispatches Against Displacement

Snacks will be served.
