I attended a Heyday Books event last night for David Mas Masumoto's Heirlooms: Letters from a Peach Farmer. My first visit to Heyday's Berkeley office. It was a cool event, well attended (and catered!)--a pleasant and effective way to roll out a new book. Mas and his daughter Nikiko, a recent Cal grad, read selections from the book that were intermittently wry and heartfelt. She has decided to return to the family farm in Del Rey, 20 miles south of Fresno. See the link above for book details.
