Alia Volz, Home Baked: My Mom, Marijuana, and the Stoning of San Francisco, kicks off the first TOTAL SF Book Club. 


San Francisco Chronicle columnist Heather Knight and pop culture critic Peter Hartlaub, founders of the Chronicle’s TotalSF program, celebrate San Francisco through the pages with their new TotalSF Book Club. Knight, Hartlaub and SFPL will curate a quarterly event with local authors and books celebrating San Francisco. They’ll include a wide array of genres—fiction, nonfiction, history, YA and even graphic novels—focused on the City they love. Follow their TotalSF podcast to hear upcoming episodes featuring interviews with the authors.


During the '70s in San Francisco, Alia's mother ran the underground Sticky Fingers Brownies, delivering upwards of 10,000 illegal marijuana edibles per month throughout the circus-like atmosphere of a city in the throes of major change. She exchanged psychic readings with Alia's future father, and thereafter had a partner in business and life.


Alia Volz is a homegrown San Franciscan. Her writing appears in The Best American Essays 2017, the New York Times, Tin House, Threepenny Review, Utne Reader, New England Review and the recent anthologies Dig If You Will the Picture: Writers Reflect on Prince and Golden State 2017: Best New Writing from California. She was runner-up of The Moth’s GrandSLAM Championship in 2014 and has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. 


Total SF, Chronicle journalists Heather Knight and Peter Hartlaub explore and celebrate the wonder and whimsy of San Francisco, with the Total SF podcast, events, spotlights on small business and more adventures.
