A homecoming of sorts, Román Leão’s latest reading from inside a broken clock: a modern fable packed the independent Bookshop Benicia with friends, family, and lovers of quality independent literature of all stripes.
A few years back, owner Christine moved the shop to an historic building across the street from the Old Capitol. Of California. That’s right, Benicia was the capital of the greatest state in these United States back in the ’50s (that’s the Eighteen 50s, long before the iPhone, Rolling Stones, or Civil War).
Read a book (or two). Your brain will thank you for it.
