Today I’m in stunning San Francisco chatting with Elaine Petrocelli, owner of Book Passage. Later in the episode, I speak with Patti Niemi, author, and percussionist with the San Francisco Opera Company.
Book Passage has two locations; Corte Madera and the San Francisco Ferry Building. Elaine has been a bookseller for forty years, and her knowledge of the book industry is vast. She is a fierce advocate for new authors and much-loved in her community.
Patti Niemi’s novel Sticking It Out: From Juilliard to the Orchestra Pit, a Percussionist’s Memoir, recounts the story of a little girl’s dream of being a percussionist and the cutthroat world of auditions for coveted orchestra jobs.
