Frances Rivetti Book Reading

  • Second Street Flowers 140 2nd Street Petaluma, CA, 94952 United States (map)

Petaluma based author and indpendent journalist Frances Rivetti will read from an evocative Mushroom Foraging chapter in her southern Sonoma County and coastal west Marin farmstead fireside companion book, Fog Valley Winter, Pioneer Heritage, Backroad Rambles and Vintage Recipes.

Savor the season and enjoy festive refreshments as we visit the forest floor during the winter rains in the comfort of the lamp-lit store. Ramble in your mind’s eye a secluded, private woodland in search of the edible mushrooms that provided sustenance for the region’s early French, Italian and Eastern European settlers. 

Fog Valley Winter takes its readers back in time as the author peels back layer after delicious layer on coastal pioneer heritage and its distinctive holiday season food culture. 

Cover art, Fog Valley map and local vintage recipes all hand illustrated by Sonoma County artist Nicky Ovitt. 

No admission fee just curious minds.
