Yanni’s Sausage Grill will be serving sausage, along with Lagunitas beer and wine. Readers Books will have Bruce and Michele’s books for sale and for signing.The event is offered on a sliding scale, from $40 to $60, free for children 12 and under and is a benefit for the Sonoma County Book Festival.
