Best-selling author James Conaway’s latest piece of fiction, “Nose,” will be the topic of a book talk and signing at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 14 at the St. Helena Library.
The book, which will be released March 12, is set in a “gorgeous wine valley in northern California” like the Napa Valley. Its hero is a wine critic with an ego almost as large as his substantial girth. While investigating the origin of a superb cabernet sauvignon that he discovers during a blind tasting, the book’s hero becomes involved in a dangerous series of events that involves scandal, redemption and love.
After a wine reception and talk, there will be time for questions. Books will be available for purchase and signing. The event is free, open to the public and is presented by the Napa Valley Wine Library Association. No reservations are necessary.
James Conaway is well-known for his two books about our valley: “Napa: The Story of an American Eden” and “The Far Side of Eden.” He has also authored two other novels, “The Big Easy” and “World’s End,” and writes for numerous magazines.
