Reading at Third Place Books, Lake Forest Park, Seattle

Abigail Carter, author and Lisa Fox, an intuitive medium met when Lisa was compelled to enter a Vashon Island coffee shop at the prompting of Abigail’s dead husband, Arron. That fateful day began a friendship and a crazy idea. Abigail asked Lisa if she could do a series of “readings” with Lisa where she could ask Arron real questions. Over a six month period and five separate readings, Abigail had a wealth of information, some of which became the basis of her new novel Remember the Moon.
Come and hear Abigail and Lisa tell the story of how they met, how they collaborated and hear Abigail read from her book.

We participating contributors will talk about how our writing helped us think through these matters, and in the end, helped us heal.
