Tired of sulking in the rain?

Author Leslye Walton reads from her new book from Candlewick, The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender, on Friday, March 28, at 7:00 p.m. at the Secret Garden Bookshop in Ballard. Leslye is a PNW native whose book tells the magical realist story of a girl born with birds' wings. About the author the publicity materials say, "She has developed a strange kinship with the daffodil — she too can achieve beauty only after a long, cold sulk in the rain. Her debut novel was inspired by a particularly long sulk in a particularly cold rainstorm spent pondering the logic, or rather, lack thereof, in love."
