Next Yuba Lit September 15th: FRANCES STROH

Please save the date for our next Yuba Lit:

Thursday, September 15th, 7 p.m.: FRANCES STROH

When Frances Stroh was growing up in Detroit, her family’s Stroh Brewing Company had become the largest private beer fortune in America, worth $700 million. But the fortune dissolved in a decade, torn apart by divorce and drugs. Stroh’s memoir is elegantly written and mercilessly clear-eyed in its self-appraisal.


“How does a family dynasty die? In her image-rich memoir, ‘Beer Money,’ Frances Stroh asks the question with heroic honesty, from the inside.”


“Stroh’s compelling memoir vividly portrays the aching permanence of loss and the palpability of hope that accompanies starting over.”


Frances will read with Nevada City emerging fiction writer Elizabeth Soderstrom, and a third reader to be announced soon.  The next Yuba Lit starts 7 p.m. Thursday, September 15th, at The Open Book, 671 Maltman Dr., Grass Valley.
