Book Club, 'Epitaph for a Peach', Tue 6/6 at 6:30, Visalia Library

First Tuesday Book Club
Epitaph for a Peach by Mas Masumoto
June 6th at 6:30 pm
Visalia Branch Library
“Del Rey-area peach grower David Mas Masumoto’s “Epitaph for a Peach” is at once a contemporary look at Valley agriculture and a look back at the ties that bind farmers to their land. But it’s so much more. His seductive, spare-prose style invites readers to share his observations and emotions but doesn’t preach. Masumoto’s brilliant descriptions about the seasonal looks and sounds and smells of Valley farming remind the reader of Peter Mayle’s A Year in Provence.” —Fresno Bee Book Review
