Christi Phillips 

When: Thu., May 1, 7 p.m. 2008

In Christi Phillips' novel The Rossetti Letter, scholar Claire Donovan is writing her Ph.D. thesis on a 17th-century courtesan who secretly warned Venetian officials of a conspiracy. Visiting Venice, Claire is startled to learn of another scholar's campaign to vilify the long-dead lady -- and potentially wreck Claire's career. Phillips ruminates on the Renaissance at A Great Good Place for Books (6120 La Salle Ave., Oakland) on Thursday, May 1. 7 p.m. GGPBooks.
