Glen Ellen author/adventurer/artist launches her memoir at Readers’ Books

If you ever wondered what it would be like to arrive in this world at the end of WWII, be whisked off across the country at the age of nine months to meet her U.S. Marine dad for the first time, to grow up in the New Jersey ’50s and ’60s while being the only Catholic girl in school with a dad not around, to become a registered nurse (one of the very few socially accepted options for women at the time), to marry a twotime Ivy Leaguer, to give birth to a daughter, to earn a Fine Arts degree, to learn to pilot a BMW motorcycle in 40 countries, to survive the 1997 Peking to Paris Motor Challenge, to live bi-hemispherically — all the while finding the time to act on her passion for art and architecture — then please know that Glen Ellen memoirist, Linda Dodwell, will be reading from her recently published book The Road Taken: Men, Motorcycles, and Me, at Readers’ Books, 130 E. Napa St. in downtown Sonoma, on June 5, at 2 p.m. A Q& A and book signing will follow.
