Plans are in the works for a reading/conversation on the Puget Sound campus with Professor Frankel. The tentative date is September 23, and there will be copies of her book available for purchase. More as the plans coalesce.

We’re very excited that the debut novel of our talented colleague Professor Laurie Frankel, The Atlas of Love (St. Martin’s Press, 23.99) will be released next month, on August 17. Advance press describes the book as “highly literate,” “insightful,” and “beautifully written”–and some of you may have been fortunate enough to have heard Professor Frankel read from it this past spring. The rest of us are eagerly awaiting it.
If, like us, you can’t wait, you can pre-order the book (or a Kindle version thereof) from amazon.com here.
Congratulations to Laurie from all of us in the department!

Professor Ann Putnam’s memoir, Full Moon at Noontide receives a glowing review in today’s edition of the Seattle Times, which you can read here. Don’t forget that she will read from her work tonight, Friday, January 22, at Elliott Bay Books in Seattle. Congratulations to Ann!

First off, Professor Ann Putnam offers several chances this month to hear her read from her exquisite memoir, Full Moon at Noontide: A Daughter’s Last Goodbye (SMU Press, $22.50). The book is wise and touching, and in it, Ann addresses the full range of human experience with her characteristic stylistic precision and grace.
Ann will read at Seattle’s famed Elliott Bay Bookstore on Friday, January 22, 7 p.m. Check her website (linked above) or Elliott Bay’s for more information and an excerpt.
If you can’t get to Elliott Bay, you can catch Ann reading at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park, on Tuesday, January 26, also at 7 p.m..
And to keep in mind, Professor Dolen Perkins-Valdez is currently touring in support of her debut novel, Wench (Amistad, $24.99), and will be rejoining us on the left coast in March for readings and a workshop on campus. Wench has already garnered some exceptional reviews, and I’m looking forward to getting a signed copy from its gifted author. Professor Laurie Frankel also has a debut novel in press; more information as it becomes available. The department is planning a campus celebration of our gifted and prolific Creative Writing faculty later this semester…We’ll keep you posted.
