Each month, So Cal Readers (WNBA-LA’s reading group) will be exploring a book written by a local author, who will in turn share with us their favorite independent bookstore. Our September Book is “The Woman in Red” by Diana Giovinazzo. Be sure to join WNBA-LA so you don’t miss out on the So Cal Readers monthly reading group (2nd Tuesday of the month).
Diana nominated Bel Canto Booksas one of her favorite indie bookstores. When asked why she loves Bel Canto Books, she said,
“What I love about Bel Canto is that Jhoanna always has a smile on her face and new books to discover. Likewise, if there is a book that she doesn’t have she’s willing to get it for me. I certainly can’t help but swing by for a new book and a plant.”
Stop by Bel Canto Books and see Jhoanna’s smiling face for yourself!
