Virtual Event: Christine Hemp in Conversation with Erica Bauermeister - Wild Ride Home: Love, Loss, & a Little White Horse, A Family Memoir

Thu, 08/13/2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Village Books is pleased to welcome Christine Hemp to the Virtual Readings Gallery where she will be in conversation with fellow author, Erica Bauermeister! Order your signed copy of Wild Ride Home, or House Lessons exclusively from Village Books.
 
 
Wild Ride Home invites the reader into the close Hemp family, who believes beauty and humor outshine the most devastating circumstances. Such optimism is challenged when the author suffers a series of blows: a dangerous fiancé, her mother’s dementia, unexpected death and illness. Buddy, a feisty, unforgettable little Arabian horse with his own history to overcome, offers her a chance to look back on her own life and learn to trust again, not only others, but more importantly, herself. Hemp skillfully guides us through a memoir that is, despite devastating loss, above all, an ode to joy.  
 
Christine Hemp has aired her essays and poems on National Public Radio's Morning Edition. She has received a Harvard University Conway Award for teaching writing and a Washington State Artist Trust Fellowship for Literature. She lives on the Olympic Peninsula with two horses, two cats, and one husband.
 
Erica Bauermeister is the bestselling author of a new memoir, House Lessons, and four novels, including The School of Essential Ingredients and The Scent Keeper. She has a Ph.D. in literature from the University of Washington, and has taught there and at Antioch University. She is a founding member of the Seattle7Writers and currently lives in Port Townsend, Washington, in the house she renovated with her family.

To Our Beloved Community,

We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and against injustice and racism. We are encouraged by the many people who are making their voices heard and are advocating for real, substantial change. During times like these, it is up to each of us individually to be responsible for change and to involve ourselves in the conversation. We can find hope in people trying to educate themselves and their children. CLICK HERE to continue reading and for a few different book lists, sorted by age (including links to our website) with titles that can help explain and aid in our education and in our conversation.
