Peter Damm - Wild Blueberries (Corte Madera Store)

Saturday, September 7, 2019 - 7:00pm

Some writers look at life with their eyes, others with their heart. In this beautifully written and illustrated collection of generous, poignant and humorous stories, Peter Damm recalls the joys of fishing on a northern lake, the rigors and confusion of childhood, or feasting on blueberries in autumn. These vignettes of growing up in small town rural Michigan, and a closely observed portrait of mid-century America are not just pretty postcards. Damm's family experienced difficulty, alcoholism and loss, and he writes with a survivor's compassion. Wild Blueberries features tales for all the senses, held in place by strands of memory alternately steel and gold
