Meet Bestselling Author Vanessa Diffenbaugh

Saturday, August 17, 2:00 p.m.

Hayward City Hall, Council Chambers, 777 B Street


Language of FlowersThe Language of Flowers, Vanessa Diffenbaugh’s moving and elegantly written debut novel, creates a vivid portrait of a young woman whose gift for flowers helps her change the lives of others even as she struggles to overcome her own troubled past as a foster care child. Don’t miss this special opportunity to talk with the author of this well-loved book. The Language of Flowers was Hayward’s 2013 World Book Night selection distributed by volunteer book givers locally to 340 readers on April 23. 


Vanessa DiffenbaughWelcome Vanessa back to the Bay Area and hear from representatives of organizations that support youth transitioning from foster care, including the Camellia Network, a group that she cofounded. In The Language of Flowers, Camellia means “My Destiny is in Your Hands.”


Born in San Francisco and raised in Chico, Vanessa Diffenbaugh studied creative writing and education at Stanford. She went on to teach art and writing to youth in low-income communities. She and her husband have three children, including a former foster child currently attending New York University on a Gates Millennium Scholarship.
