Abeer Y. Hoque (author of short story collection The Lovers and the Leavers and monograph The Long Way Home) will visit Elliott Bay to share her latest work, a memoir titled Olive Witch. Poems and weather conditions punctuate the narrative, which focuses on Hoque's experiences as a young Bangladeshi girl living first in Nigeria and then in Pittsburgh. It's a meditation on culture and identity—with detailed and intimate depictions of depression, including institutionalization—that Kirkus Reviews called "quietly moving." Hoque will be joined by poet and prose writer Carol Guess, comics artist Amanda Davidson and poet, critic and book artist Deborah Poe.
