Jennie Shortridge will read from her latest book, Love Water Memory at the Hoffman Center.
The novel’s main character, Lucie, wakes up knee-deep in the San Francisco Bay with no understanding of how she got there. After being diagnosed with a rare form of amnesia, the thirty-nine-year-old returns to her previous life with a fiance’ in Seattle only to find evidence of the "old" Lucie—an insecure and shallow personality she no longer recognizes, or wants to.
In addition to five novels, Jennie’s nonfiction work has appeared in national magazines and newspapers. When not writing, teaching writers workshops, or volunteering, Jennie stays busy as a founding member of Seattle7Writers.org, a collective of authors devoted both to raising funds for community literacy projects and to raising awareness of Northwest literature.
Jennie kicked off the Manzanita Writer’s Series in June 2008, so it’s only fitting that she’s back to celebrate MWS’s fifth year.
Please note: this event is on a Friday night, not the Writers’ Series usual Saturday night.
Following Shortridge’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.
