What could be better than visiting the Napa Valley, touring wineries, eating great food and reading a wonderful work of historical women’s fiction with a group of like-minded readers and wine lovers? Not much.  Which is why we’re super excited about our Bookish Travel event to Napa Valley featuring Jan Moran’s latest release, The Winemakers.
