The month of September is a very busy month for guild members. So, we have a
program that members can sit back and enjoy. Not only that, but it’s a month
where we can possibly make a little money for the guild with our annual book
We welcome Leslie Karst as speaker. Leslie has published three books in the
well-received Sally Solari mystery series. Leslie Karst has degrees in
English literature, law and culinary arts. After graduating from Stanford
Law School, she worked for twenty years as a research and appellate attorney
before retiring. Leslie now splits her time between Santa Cruz and Hilo,
Hawaii and spends her time cooking, gardening, cycling, singing alto in the
local community chorus, and of course, writing.
Leslie’s books will feel familiar to anyone who has spent at least a couple
years in Santa Cruz and are available at Bookshop Santa Cruz and Amazon.
The Annual Book Sale will benefit the Guild. Please donate any books you no
longer want, providing they are not textbooks. We accept fiction,
nonfiction, hard cover, paperback and of course any knitting related books.
The proceeds of this sale will go to the guild coffers for programs and
Paperbacks: 50 cents

Knitting Books will be priced (in general) $1 to $5 – the pricing will be
