The Book Club of California announces the appointment of Jennifer Sime as Executive Director, effective October 1, 2013.
In making the announcement, BCC President Dr. Anne W. Smith said,
“Jennifer has impressed everyone with her poise, intelligence, and her insightful enthusiasm about the mission and programs of the Book Club. She has an extensive background in the cultural and editorial affairs that are so important to the Club, including work as Managing Editor for William Stout Publishers and as editor and project manager for many Bay Area galleries and architectural firms.”
