Tuesday | August 29 | 7pm

Join us for the launch of Noe Valley author Rebecca Winterer’s debut novel, The Singing Ship, winner of the Del Sol Press First Novel Prize for 2016.  Rebecca will be in conversation with  Peg Alford Pursell of Why There Are Words Press.  Set in the outback, and a coastal town in Australia where Winterer grew up, the novel portrays a complex environment, where drought, floods, and human cruelty can be commonplace. Del Sol Press Editor in Chief Chris Stewart says, “I was captivated by THE SINGING SHIP immediately. It’s a rare thing to be swept away by a good book these days, but Rebecca’s novel has that power.”
