Introducing our latest project–bringing CALYX authors and literature to life through video. This month, we’re featuring Katherine Malmo, author of our Fall 2011 Creative Nonfiction release Who in This Room: The Realities of Cancer, Fish, and Demolition.

Based in autobiography, Who in This Room explores a young woman’s experiences with breast cancer with an emotional honesty and cutting humor that’s rarely represented in mainstream publishing.  Who in This Room is not your typical “cancer book”–this is a story about fly fishing, lemon trees, and a stubborn woman’s drive to survive.

Who in this Room will be available for presale at www.calyxpress.org in summer 2011, and will be released in October 2011.

CALYX Books is currently seeking donations to help with publicity costs for Who in This Room. Our goal is to raise enough funds to donate copies of this collection to oncology support groups across the Pacific Northwest.  Click here to help CALYX Books with this important project.
