A Man and His Mountain: A Book Talk and Holiday Wine Event
Saturday, December 7, 2013 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (PST)
Long Beach, CA
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join Pulitzer Prize winning Seal Beach author Edward Humes for a discussion of his new book, A Man and His Mountain, the biography of billionaire California winemaker Jess Jackson, who put Chardonnay on America's tables as he built the Kendall-Jackson wine empire.
This is the remarkable story of a lumberjack-turned-cop-turned-lawyer-turned-winemaker who worked his way onto the Forbes 400 list of wealthiest Americans and found his greatest success after age 50. Here's what renowned wine expert Robert M. Parker says about A Man and His Mountain: "A classic American story -- a man of the people becomes one of the greatest visionaries and qualitative titans the wine world has ever witnessed. Very highly recommended."
Apostrophe Books, a wonderful independent bookseller in Long Beach's Belmont Shores, is hosting this special wine and books event for the holiday season. Join Ed for a lively discussion and a glass of wine, and pick up a signed copy for your favorite wine lover.
*Free event; no ticket required.
