Our Poetry and Prose group took a summer break and are planning to gear back up in the Fall. Meanwhile, here is information on a great book to add to your late summer reading list—and information on the author’s book reading coming up here in Seattle next month:
When Laura Estreich is born, her appearance presents a puzzle: does the shape of her eyes indicate Down syndrome, or the fact that she has a Japanese grandmother? In The Shape of the Eye, George Estreich, a poet and at-home dad, tells his daughter’s story while reflecting on her inheritance–from the literal legacy of her genes, to family stories, to Victorian medical history. To read an excerpt, and to read praise from Abraham Verghese, Michael Berube, Kim Edwards, Timothy Shriver, and others, visit georgeestreich.com.
George Estreich will be reading and signing books in Bellingham, at Village Books, on Saturday, September 10th, at 7 p.m.; and in Seattle, at Elliott Bay Book Company, on Sunday, September 11th, at 2 p.m.
