Town Hall Seattle says
Who and what makes a family? Is it our blood relations, the people we work with, the people we pray with, our pets? "New York Times" bestselling author Annabelle Gurwitch offers "Wherever You Go, There They Are: Stories About My Family You Might Relate To," a collection of essays about the meaning of family. In conversation with, Portland-based author Nancy Rommelmann, she delves into family mythology, her southern Jewish roots, and her inheritance of a small plot of land split between five relatives on an ill-fated sliver of sand known as Massacre Island. Discussing the sisterhoods, temporary tribes, communities and cults she’s joined by accident or on purpose, she shares her realization that no matter how hard you try to escape your crazy family, you just end up in another crazy family.
