‘The Green Tara’ author at Bump Cellars in Sonoma

Local writer and poet Lisa Summers has written a new novel, “The Green Tara – A Wine Country Caper.” She will be reading from the book and signing copies beginning at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 21, at Bump Cellars.

At her website, the author offers a synopsis: “Somewhere in Sonoma, a set of false teeth hides a clue to the unsolved mystery of the Green Tara, a famous emerald necklace that once belonged to a queen in India, only to be stolen, centuries later, from the vault of a Santa Monica Hotel right before the 1974 Oscars, and lost at sea. In the spring of 2016, news breaks that a sophisticated forgery has been discovered in the San Pedro Harbor. The hunt for the necklace begins anew.”

Following the reading and Q&A, the second half of the evening will feature music by the author’s daughter, local singer/songwriter Sarah Summers.

Bumps Cellars is located at 521 Broadway in Sonoma.
