San Mateo County is Reading Daughter of Fortune this Fall

Original post made by Kathleen Beasley, Atherton, on Sep 19, 2007

The libraries of San Mateo County produced over sixty cultural programs and book discussions in addition to hosting a personal appearance by the author. These activities were wildly successful. Mr. Hosseini’s appearance at the San Mateo Performing Arts Center filled all 1800 seats and the entire standing room area. We reluctantly had to turn people away due to overcapacity.
