Book Launch Party for Nicole Hardy’s CONFESSIONS OF A LATTER-DAY VIRGIN
Celebrate the launch of Nicole Hardy’s Confessions of a Latter-day Virgin, a funny, intimate, and poignant memoir about faith and identity in the Mormon Church, with a summertime party featuring DJ Chris Porter, a roving photographer, a stylist to do your hair in a beehive, food, and a raffle to benefit Hugo House.
Nicole will also give a short reading from the book followed by a Q&A with Hugo House Program Director Brian McGuigan. The reading is free. The bar will be open, and books will be for sale by Elliott Bay Book Company.
