Please join us in celebrating Writing Salon teacher Jess Wells' launch of her new collection of stories -- an audio book narrated by the author -- The Disappearing Andersons of Loon Lake. Whether it’s the story of a young dreamer and a bully, a teacher facing ethical choices, or a family coping with disaster, critics say "these stories delight" and convey “a real sense of the contradiction and ambivalence that goes on within the family circle…through writing that has a lyrical style." She's providing free copies of the book and champagne. Please join us in the celebration!
Jess Wells is the author of thirteen volumes of work, including the novel A Slender Tether on the early years of Christine de Pizan, a pioneering thinker of the 14th century French court; and the novel The Mandrake Broom, dramatizing the fight to save medical knowledge during the witch-burning times in Europe (1465-1540). Wells is the winner of a San Francisco Art Commission Grant for Literature and a four-time finalist for the national Lambda Literary Award. Her work is included in dozens of anthologies and literary journals.
