Tonight: Vendela Vida at Kepler's


Vendela Vida will discuss her new novel, "The Lovers," at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 11, at Kepler's, 1010 El Camino Real in Menlo Park.

"The Lovers" is a story about a woman, Yvonne, whose husband has died. Hoping to immerse herself in memories of a happier time as well as sand and sea Yvonne returns to Datca, Turkey, where they honeymooned 28 years ago. But her plans for a restorative week in Turkey are quickly complicated. Instead of comforting her, her memories begin to trouble her.

Ms. Vida co-founded (with her husband, Dave Eggers) 826 Valencia, a tutoring space in San Francisco where kids can get help with their writing. Since its founding in 2002, it has gone national, with seven drop-in centers around the U.S.
