Author Talk: Burnt: A Memoir of Fighting Fire

September 5, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Presenting Clare Frank, author of Burnt: A Memoir of Fighting Fire, in partnership with Napa Bookmine.

When Clare Frank was 17 years old, she became a firefighter in Northern California. Clare was five foot two and too young to officially join the service—she left her birthdate blank on her paperwork, hoping no one would notice.

Burnt is Clare’s inspiring, richly detailed, and open-hearted account of an extraordinary life in fire. It chronicles the transformation of a young adult determined to prove her mettle into a scarred and sensitive veteran, grappling with the weight of her duties as Chief of Fire Prevention—one of the highest-ranking women in Cal Fire history—while record-setting fires engulf her home state.
