Leadership Lecture Series welcomes Isabel Allende

Internationally acclaimed author and Marin County resident Isabel Allende spoke at Dominican University of California on April 23 as part of the University’s 2013 Institute for Leadership Studies (ILS) Spring Leadership Lecture Series. The series is offered in partnership with Bay Area independent bookstore Book Passage.

Allende officially released her new book, Maya’s Notebook, on the day of her appearance. She is the author of 19 books that have been translated in 35 languages and sold more than 57 million copies. In that time, Allende has received 12 international honorary doctorates for her work in addition to 50 awards across more than 15 countries. Two of her books have been turned into international movies.

Elaine Petrocelli, president of Book Passage, appeared on stage at Angelico Hall in conversation with Allende.

Admission was free to the Allende event at Dominican with the purchase of Maya’s Notebook ($32).

The Leadership Lecture Series is a cooperative effort between Dominican’s Institute for Leadership Studies and Book Passage.
