PLOP! April 17th Installment: Memoir & Cello

April 6, 2010

PLOP! is back and inviting you for our second installment of literary and music performance.

I’m especially excited to introduce two medical memoirists from Seattle hospitals reading first hand accounts and stories of patients, health care, healing and residency; combined with the gracious humor, affect and emotion of Emily Ann Peterson’s cello, and the touch of Young Adult Fiction by a soon to be published Alexa Martin, ala Olympia.

Bios and RSVP below …
