About the Event

Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum is thrilled to welcome authors Jeanne Heuving, Julie Carr, and Donna Stonecipher for an author panel discussion. 

T. S. Eliot famously wrote, "Time present and time past. Are both perhaps present in time future. . . . If all time is eternally present / All time is unredeemable." The authors will take on the questions raised by T.S. Eliot, reflecting on which considerations of time are elemental to their work.

Enjoy readings of passages from their books, Indigo Angel, Mud, Blood and Ghosts: Populism, Eugenics and Spiritualism in the American West, and The Ruins of Nostalgia, and join us for a wine reception to conclude the evening.
