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 fiancĂ©, 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.
