While Alameda’s shelter-in-place order is in effect, the Friends of the Alameda Library will sponsor a series of author appearances to be conducted via Zoom. The first author is Helen Joyce Harris, who wrote Visible Means of Support. She will read from the novel and answer questions about the story from 7:00-8:00pm on May 13th.
Visible Means of Support is the story of an impetuous young man who is imprisoned for conspiracy to deal cocaine, and his middle class mother’s shame, which leads her to concoct an elaborate, convoluted cover story to keep his whereabouts secret from her friends and colleagues, as well as the young man’s aristocratic grandmother. The book is available in both printed and electronic form. Alameda’s Books Inc. carries the novel, as well as national online retailers.
Helen Joyce Harris is an Alameda resident who taught English in Alameda for 22 years. She holds a BA in English from Stanford, a teaching credential from UC Berkeley, and an MFA in Writing from the University of Montana. She has taught college level writing in Colorado, and at Laney College and Alameda’s Argosy University.
