Bellingham, WA 98225-7015

Meets 1st & 3rd Sundays, 3-5pm

We have eclectic tastes that range from biography, history, nature writing, and self-help, but tend to focus primarily on the memoir. Our process is to bring a printed copy of your piece for each member of the group to follow while you read aloud. The group critiques aloud and also writes notes on your print out, and returns the print outs to you for you to keep. Critiquing is honest and encouraging. We ask that new members attend at least two meetings before submitting their own works for critique.

An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon

Aster has little to offer folks in the way of rebuttal when they call her ogre and freak. She's used to the names; she only wishes there was more truth to them. If she were truly a monster, she'd be powerful enough to tear down the walls around her until nothing remains of her world.

Aster lives in the lowdeck slums of the HSS Matilda, a space vessel organized much like the antebellum South. For generations, Matilda has ferried the last of humanity to a mythical Promised Land. On its way, the ship's leaders have imposed harsh moral restrictions and deep indignities on dark-skinned sharecroppers like Aster. Embroiled in a grudge with a brutal overseer, Aster learns there may be a way to improve her lot--if she's willing to sow the seeds of civil war.
