Author Vendela Vida joins us in studio to talk about her latest book, "The Diver's Clothes Lie Empty." Part travel novel, part psychological thriller, the story follows a grieving American woman in Casablanca who is robbed of all of her money and identification. As a result, she gains the surprising freedom to redefine her identity. We talk with Vida, who is appearing at this weekend's Bay Area Book Festival. We'll also get a preview of the festival with Executive Director Cherilyn Parsons.
