Rescheduled from October 15th. Tonight beloved Seattle writer and writing teacher Priscilla Long celebrates the publication of two new books. Fire and Stone: Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? (University of Georgia Press) is a collection of personal essays in which she (using her own story as a touchstone) explores our human roots and how they shape who we are today. Minding the Muse: a Handbook for Painters, Composers, Writers and Other Creators (Coffeetown Press), is a practical handbook for the aspiring and the experienced artist. Priscilla Long’s books include Crossing Over: Poems and The Portable Writer’s Mentor.
