Wed April 14  |  7:00 - 8:00 pm


This tale of a six­ty-year love affair exam­ines the age-old ques­tion of why we love the peo­ple we do. Elayne Klas­son was born in Chica­go and now lives on the cen­tral coast of Cal­i­for­nia. Love is a Rebel­lious Bird is her debut nov­el. She has had a long career in acad­e­mia and jour­nal­ism both in Cal­i­for­nia and in the Caribbean. In her sev­en­ties, she has pub­lished her first nov­el to excel­lent crit­i­cal review — win­ning and being short-list­ed for sev­er­al prizes for con­tem­po­rary and debut fic­tion (includ­ing being a final­ist for The Gold­berg Prize for Debut Fic­tion from the Nation­al Jew­ish Book Awards).
