Seattle author Maria Semple joins us in the bookstore on August, 14th at 7:00 pm to read from her newest novel (yes, it happens to be an epistolary novel), the Seattle-set, Where’d You Go, Bernadette. This evening is a celebration for the publication of a book already garnering rave reviews. “At times bringing tears-to-your-eyes laughter that skewers my own hometown (and quite possibly my mother). Where’d You Go, Bernadette is also a compassionate look at family dysfunction, the paralysis of genius, and good old-fashioned parental love.” -Garth Stein. Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice—which figures prominently in the book—will also be on hand to provide audience members with delectable treats. Please, join us.
