Award-winning author Josefina López, best known as the creator of the play “Real Women Have Curves,” which spawned the popular Sundance Film Festival award-winning film of the same title starring America Ferrera, Lupe Ontiveros and George Lopez, will appear in The Fourth Annual Idyllwild Authors Series presented by Eduardo Santiago & Pen Center USA on Sunday, July 13 at 3 p.m. at Café Aroma in Idyllwild.

López will be interviewed by the host of the author series, Eduardo Santiago, followed by a signing of her novel, “Hungry Woman in Paris,” about a young attractive woman living in Paris searching for meaning in her life while exploring her emotional and sexual hungers. Free admission. Books will be sold at the event.

“Hungry Woman in Paris” is author Josefina López’ first novel. The story is about a journalist and activist named Canela who believes passion is an essential ingredient in life, but lately it seems to be in short supply. Using the ticket meant for her honeymoon, Canela escapes from Los Angeles to Paris, where she impulsively enrolls in the city’s most prestigious culinary institute. There, still haunted by her cousin Luna’s death, she begins a wondrous journey against the backdrop of a storied city and amid the enticing aromas of purees, sauces and broths. Making some new – and surprising – friends, and letting haute cuisine reawaken her spiritual and sensual sides, Canela discovers just who she is and what she wants, to hopefully once again savor the world around her.
