Jenny Offill: Weather
Author of the nationally bestselling novel "Dept. of Speculation", also one of the NYT Book Review's Ten Best Books of 2014, Jenny Offill visits San Francisco to read from her anticipated follow-up, "Weather."

She wonders: what does it mean to keep tending your own garden once you've seen the flames beyond its walls?
