Another Hugo House launch happens at the Sorrento’s lovely Fireside Room this evening as Janet Buttenweiser, a Seattle writer and Hugo House instructor celebrates publication of her memoir, Guts (Vine Leaves Press).
“You’ll be hooked from the very first scene, intrigued by the story’s promise: a woman’s decisive, tenacious journey through illness and loss. This book is about friendship, family, and the challenge to accept—and survive—the events in our lives beyond our control.” –Nicole Hardy.
“Blunt, eloquent, piercing, honest, witty, heartaching, startlingly funny, and beautifully, refreshingly unique. Can you read a book about pain while grinning and trying not to cry and not being able to think of a single book that’s anything like it? Yup. This one. Guts.” –Brian Doyle.
Free admission. Hotel Sorrento is at 900 Madison Street. For more information, please see www.hugohouse.org.
