Meet & Greet with Linda Sonrisa Jones, author of Romancing the Sur

March 10, 2018 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Romancing the Sur, tells of the passion it takes to embrace the chaos, impermanence and wild beauty of life on the Big Sur coast. Up a dirt road, on the ridge Henry Miller called home, you’ll find views of the lunar goddess, lupine blossom sorbet, and bathing in a claw-foot tub as condors soar above. There are also life-changing wildfires, sneaky rattlesnakes, and a host of marvelous eccentric characters with wisdom to share.
“Linda Sonrisa’s writing, like a car she once had, is convertible—she converts her experiences of Big Sur so that we get to step into her rural, effervescent life. She’ll take you for a spin in her red Miata along the highway’s tight curves, and you too will find that ‘everything is beautiful again.’ Get right up close to her experience of the transformation of fire into ash into gratitude. Here’s a writer who listens with such care that she can hear a friend’s sadness in a raven’s voice and his joy in singing finches. If we could all live our lives with such attention, the world would be a better place. If we could all write like this, wouldn’t that be something!” Patrice Vecchione, author, Step into Nature: Nurturing Imagination & Spirit in Everyday Life
