Eric Peterson, author of ÒLife as a Sandwich,Ó will be the featured writer for the October installment of Venezio WineryÕs Grape Gatsby Writers Series.

Peterson will appear at the Pilot Hill winery, 5821 Highway 49, on Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. to read from his novel, discuss the writing process and answer questions.

ÒIt seems only fitting that Eric Peterson would return to CaliforniaÕs Gold Country,Ó said Jill Treadwell-Svendsen, managing director of Huckleberry House, the small press founded at Lake Tahoe that serves as PetersonÕs publisher. ÒHis hilarious novel of greed, treachery and the quest for riches in a high tech start-up is the quintessential California story.Ó

Gina Venezio, owner of Venezio Winery, and author Samantha Dunn conceived the writersÕ series as an opportunity for wine tasters to get to know authors in a relaxed, casual setting.

ÒPeople with a passion for food and wine often share a similar passion for the written word,Ó said Dunn. ÒThese informal gatherings afford our visitors a unique view of what makes an author really tick.Ó

PetersonÕs ÒLife as a SandwichÓ has been praised by critics for its sharp-witted and biting humor. VenezioÕs wine tasters are in for an enjoyable afternoon, promises Treadwell-Svendsen.

ÒWeÕre grateful that the Venezio Winery has opened its doors to us,Ó said Treadwell-Svendsen. ÒEric has an acerbic sense of humor. His book signings are like his novels Ñ never dull, and guaranteed to entertain.Ó
