Tina Kelley Book Reading at The Elliott Bay Book Company

July 7, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Poet and journalist Tina Kelly returns to Elliott Bay – and Seattle – this evening to read from her new collection, Abloom & Awry (CavanKerry Press). Winner of a Washington State Book Award in 2003, for her collection, Gospel of Galore, she has also served as a reporter at The New York Times (where she won a shared staff Pulitzer Prize for coverage of 9/11). Her previous books also include Almost Home: Helping Kids Move from Hope, (co-authored with Kevin Ryan), a book about Covenant House.

Seattle poet Judith Skillman, author of Prisoner of the Swifts, a Washington State Book Award Finalist, also makes a most welcome return visit tonight, and she’ll read from her new book, Kafka’s Shadow (Deerbrook Editions). Kafka’s Shadow takes the reader through Franz Kafka’s life from childhood through adulthood, as he came of age under his authoritarian father, Hermann, who desired that Franz become entrepreneurial and insensitive—in short, a replica of himself. Judith Skillman, also a fiction writer and collaborative translator, is a two time Jack Straw Fellow.
