Jennifer Longo, Author of What I Carry

Jennifer Longo is joining us on Sunday, February 16 at 2:00pm to celebrate the release of her new book What I Carry, on sale at the end of January. Jen will be reading from her book, chatting about the process, and signing. Come on by for a fantastic evening!

In What I Carry, Muir has lived in many houses because of growing up in foster care. And if she's learned one thing, it is to Pack. Light. Carry only what fits in a suitcase.
Toothbrush? Yes.
Socks? Yes.
Emotional attachment to friends? foster families? a boyfriend? Nope!
There's no room for any additional baggage.
Muir has just one year left before she ages out of the system. One year before she's free. One year to avoid anything--or anyone--that could get in her way.

Then she meets Francine. And Kira. And Sean.
And everything changes.

Jennifer Longo is the author of Six Feet Over It and Up to This Pointe. She holds an MFA in Writing for Theater from Humboldt State University. Jennifer lives in Seattle with her husband and daughter and writes about writing at You can also find her on Twitter @JenLiaLongo.
