Adrienne Rubin discusses her action-packed memoir, Diamonds and Scoundrels: My Life in the Jewelry Business.  

When Adrienne Rubin enters into the jewelry business in 1970s Los Angeles, she is a maverick in a world dominated by men. She soon meets a young hotshot salesman who doesn't seem to struggle at all, and when he asks her to be his partner, she is excited to join him. She doesn't know him well, but she does know his father, and she believes he is as trustworthy as the day is long . . .
Diamonds and Scoundrels shows us how a woman in a man's world, with tenacity and sheer determination, can earn respect and obtain a true sense of accomplishment. Following Rubin's experiences in the jewelry industry through the '70s, '80s, and '90s--with the ups and downs, good guys and bad--this is a tale of personal growth, of how to overcome challenges with courage and resilience. It's a story for the woman today who, in addition to a rich family life, seeks a self-realized, fulfilling path toward a life well lived.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores when we can assure authors and guests that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on an exciting list of virtual events for both adults and children and we look forward to exploring this new format with you.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
