Everett reads Where'd You Go, Bernadette

February is the Everett Public Library's 4th annual, month-long Everett Reads! celebration. All of Everett is invited to read the same book. This year the selected title is Maria Semple's bestseller, Where'd You Go, Bernadette?.

Semple comes from a Hollywood writing background, having been a writer for Mad About You, and a producer on Arrested Development. Her writing reflects the quirky humor of both shows. Bernadette is set in Seattle, where Semple currently resides.

Boing Boing's founder and editor-in-chief Mark Frauenfelder describes the book as a "funny and dark novel about the disintegration of a Microsoft family". It's a book we think that you will enjoy talking about, and Semple is a humorous and engaging speaker who we think will capture your interest.

Maria Semple will be at the Everett Performing Arts Center in a free appearance and book signing at 7 p.m. on Sunday, February 23rd. There are two book discussion opportunities, 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 12 and 11:45 a.m. on Monday, February 24 (both at the Main Library).

We hope to catch you reading Where'd You Go, Bernadette? in February!
