Just in case you missed it, Readers' Books owner Andy Weinberger is proud to present his first novel, An Old Man's Game: An Amos Parisman Mystery. It's a PI novel like you've never seen before, featuring retired private eye Amos Parisman, who is hired by the local temple's board when a controversial rabbi drops dead over his matzoh ball soup at Canter's Deli in Los Angeles. As he looks into what seems to be a simple, tragic accident, Amos uncovers a world of treachery and hurt that shakes a large L.A. Jewish community to its core.

The book launch party is on Friday, November 29th at 5pm here at Readers' Books and we're looking forward to seeing everyone! There will be a reception featuring close up magic tricks from Tobias Weinberger followed by a reading and Q&A from Andy--and, of course, book signing! And if you want to cut down on your wait time at the event, we're taking paid pre-orders for the book. Come on in, buy the book, and pick it up on launch day--as easy as that.

Lilla Gilbrech Weinberger, beloved Sonoma bookseller and political organizer, died suddenly and unexpectedly, Sunday, March 24th, following a tragic fall down a flight of stairs.That was how it ended. But that one sentence doesn’t begin to encompass her life. 

Born in Pasadena, California, on October 8, 1941, she grew up in a mixed-raced, working class neighborhood. Her father was an engineer who spent the bulk of his career in aero-space and her mother was a skilled gardener and seamstress.
