Juliet Wittman Live at Colfax

Tattered Cover is pleased to welcome Juliet Wittman to our Colfax location on May 8th at 6:00pm! She will be celebrating the launch of her new book, Again and Again! This event is free to the public and no ticket is required for entry.

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

Again and Again takes place in cancerland, a world no one wants to visit. The novel's story is told by Paula, a nurse, and Chloe, a 23-year-old with a terminal diagnosis. Chloe, fierce, fragile, passionate, generous and self-absorbed--yes, all those things--is determined to defeat her own death and to save four-year-old Colin, whose insurance company is refusing the treatment that can save his life. The two women and a handful of other patients embark on a quest that veers between comedy and tragedy. They help and encourage each other, weep and rejoice together, and refuse to give up a task that often seems impossible. After all, they reason, what do they have to lose? Again and Again is about illness, female bonding, love and fear, and the intense joy and vitality that can inform lives lived in the shadow of death.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Wittman is an investigative reporter, theatre critic and University of Colorado writing instructor. She has published a critically praised novel with food at its heart, Stocker’s Kitchen, along with short stories and essays, and has won several journalism awards. Her memoir, Breast Cancer Journal: A Century of Petals, won the Colorado Book Award and was named a finalist for the National Book Award. Wittman also received a True West Award as Person of the Year, given for Denver arts coverage. This described her as “a rabble-rousing Brit and self-described hippie, adding, “Wittman loved the local theatre community, and no one could articulate that love as poetically as she could. But she could also lay the hammer down.”
