Janet Buttenwieser: GUTS | Book Launch

January 24, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm  — Free

Fireside Room

Join Hugo House in the Fireside Room for the launch of Janet Buttenweiser’s GUTS

At age 24, Janet Buttenwieser—writer and Hugo House instructor—moved to Seattle with a resume devoted to public service and fantasies of single-handedly ending poverty. But within a year, she’d developed an intestinal illness so rare, she wound up in a medical journal. GUTS (Vine Leaves Press) is the story of navigating misdiagnoses, multiple surgeries, and life with a permanent colostomy.

Janet will read selections from the memoir, followed by an onstage Q&A with Elizabeth Austen. Hugo instructor and writer Stephanie Barbé Hammer will emcee and books will be for sale from Elliott Bay Book Company.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, please come early to secure a spot. RSVPs are not available. Food and Beverage will be available for sale to the public.
