Erica Bauermeister will read from her latest book, The Lost Art
of Mixing, at the Hoffman Center.
A Seattle-based author, Bauermeister has published two non-fiction
books and three novels.
Frustrated by the lack of women authors in her university
curriculum, she co-authored 500 Great Books by Women: A Reader's
Guide with Holly Smith and Jesse Larsen and Let's Hear It For the
Girls: 375 Great Books for Readers 2-14 with Holly Smith. In the
process Erica read, literally, thousands of books, good and bad,
probably one of the best educations a writer can have.
Turning later to fiction, the first result was The School of
Essential Ingredients. It's about food and people and the
relationships between them - about taking those "unimportant" bits
of life and making them beautiful. The response to School has been
a writer's dream; the book has been published in 23
countries. Her second book, Joy for Beginners, is a book club
The Lost Art of Mixing is her latest, published in January, 2013,
and continues the stories begun in her first novel. A Booklist
review describes the book as "Warm, funny, and deeply
comforting, The Lost Art of Mixing is a delight."
Following Bauermeister's reading and Q&A, we'll have our
popular Open Mic where up to nine local writers will read 5 minutes
of their original work.
