This Common Secret: My Journey as an Abortion Doctor (Public Affairs)
by Susan Wicklund
Monday, February 11th at 6pm

In This Common Secret Dr. Susan Wicklund chronicles her emotional and dramatic twenty-year career on the front lines of the abortion war. This is the story of Susan's love for a profession that means listening to women and helping them through one of the most pivotal and controversial events in their lives. Hers is also a calling that means sleeping on planes and commuting between clinics in different states—and that requires her to wear a bulletproof vest and to carry a .38 caliber revolver. This is also the story of the women whom Susan serves, women whose options are increasingly limited.

New from Local Author

James M. Brantingham
The Winnowing Fan
(Seattle Small Books Company)

This lovely playful book takes exquisite care with words and images, giving us one quiet moment hung upon another until the seas of its imagination stretch blue or dark before us. Brantingham's translations create cutting verses sharper than butchers' knives, and he plays satirically with academic speculation about a supposed fragment from paleo-literature. Read this book for its spare lines, where Eden, Attica, and an abandoned cabin somewhere in the western hills become one, and references to orchestral music match the music of his words.

- Linda J. Clifton, Ph.D. -- founding editor, "Crab Creek Review"
