And! Current Hugo House writer-in-residence Karen Finneyfrock will be reading tonight, too. (Here's why you should love Karen Finneyfrock.) I hear she's going to be debuting a piece from her upcoming young adult novel, making this, as far as I know, the first time an audience will hear any of this book.
There's a lot of exciting stuff coming out from Seattle authors in the next year, and Finneyfrock's novel is one of the most-anticipated of the upcoming books, making this event the unofficial kickoff for what could be the biggest year in recent Seattle literary history.
