We are so pleased to welcome back Erica Bauermeister.  She was a delight at last year’s brunch.  

Erica is the bestselling author of four novels including The School of Essential Ingredients, Joy for Beginners, The Lost Art of Mixing and her most recent release, The Scent Keeper. Her memoir-in-essays, House Lessons, will be published in March of 2020. Erica is also the co-author of two nonfiction books: 500 Great Books by Women: A Reader’s Guide and Let’s Hear It For the Girls: 375 Great Books for Readers 2-14. She lives in Port Townsend, WA and loves to talk with book groups. 

Christine Hemp is an author, poet, musician, speaker, and creator of some unique curriculum that has brought rave reviews and has generated groundbreaking change within organizations that have found themselves “stuck.” Having taught at Harvard University, University of New Mexico, and most recently the University of Iowa Summer Writing Festival, Christine also brings a creative, fresh approach to the business world. 

She has aired her poems and essays on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition. Her essay about sending a poem of hers into space on a NASA rocket won her a First Place Northwest Society of Professional Journalism Award. Hemp’s work has appeared in numerous publications and in anthologies by Macmillan, Simon & Schuster, and Orchard Press. Her poetry chapbook “That Fall” was selected for the New Women’s Voices Series at Finishing Line Press. 

“Connecting Chord,” Hemp’s program with police officers and youth-at-risk, began in 2000 when she spent a week in England with Metropolitan Police officers and youth offenders in the highest crime-rate borough of London – using poetry as a tool for crime prevention.
