Burnt_Toast_Makes_You_Sing_Good_High_ResViking/Penguin and  Elliott Bay Book Co. are thrilled to announce the official launch party for Burnt Toast Makes You Sing Good, by author Kathleen Flinn (that’s me!).

Join us August 14th atop the Swedish Cultural Center overlooking Seattle’s beautiful Lake Union. Take in sweeping views of the city and mountains, hang out with Seattle’s culinary and literary crowd, enjoy food, music and entertainment of the 50s, 60, and 70s featured in my Midwest multi-generational memoir, which Kirkus reviews has called “a warm and quietly poignant treat.”

I’m Swedish…
which makes me sexy
& I’m Irish
…which makes me talk about it
