Paula Carter with Carol Guess & Hannah Faith Notess
Chicago based writer Paula Carter, author of the flash non-fiction essay collection No Relation (Black Lawrence Press) joins us today as part of a series of appearances at a variety of Pacific Northwest writing programs.
“In finely-wrought scenes as charged with meaning as images in haiku, Paula Carter tells the story of finding and then losing a lover and his two young sons. In retrospect, her separation from the boys appears to be the greater loss. For as the years tick by, she realizes that these stepchildren, although never fully her own, may be the only children she will ever have. Bittersweet, captivating, No Relation carries the burden of memory in elegant and seemingly effortless prose.” – Scott Russell Sanders.
Also reading tonight are Seattle writers Carol Guess, author with Kelly Magee of With Animal (Black Lawrence Press) and Hannah Faith Notess, author of The Multitude (Southern Indiana Review Press).
