Over at The Inlander, I wrote a piece about Seattle memoirist Elissa Washuta, who'll be reading at Get Lit!, Spokane's wonderful annual book festival. We talked about the distinction of being a memoirist versus being an essayist, whether people got mad at Washuta for the way they were presented in her memoir, and what the most surprising thing about publishing a memoir. I love introducing Seattle's authors to new audiences; I hope you'll go take a look at the piece.
