Lively reading in SF on October 23

Diane LeBow has been invited to read at the first anniversary celebration on October 23 of Weekday Wanderlust (Wednesday night this month). Diane will be reading either about her birthday dinner with Corsican terrorists, a decade-long love affair with a French baron from Brittany or some of her adventures in Afghanistan. This lively monthly reading series featuring Bay Area travel writers is hosted by Don George, Kimberly Lovato and Lavinia Spalding. The group meets at the Hotel Rex, 562 Sutter St., San Francisco. Drinks are at 6 p.m., readings at 7 p.m.
