Reina Menasche Signs in San Diego

Local author Reina Menasche, part of our festive Holiday Party, debuts her second book, Silent Bird, with friends, music, and refreshments.

A picture book called The House That Sneezed will be coming soon! This is a book “written” by the protagonist in Silent Bird, and aims to help small children talk about and understand loss. Reina also hosts East County Magazine’s “Bookshelf” radio program on KNSJ FM.

Artist and New Yorker Pilar Russell
has always been a sexual woman—as long as the commitment is light, the
feelings aren’t overwhelming and certain memories are kept at bay. When
that stops being possible, she runs away from everything she’s ever
known— friends, family and past—to reinvent herself in a place she’s
never been before. In the south of France she knows no one and nothing.
She doesn’t even speak the language. She can start all over.

But the past is not so easily left behind, and feelings cannot be ignored forever.

And love, in any language, will not be denied.
