Bess Lovejoy reads on March 12th (photo by Sean Bolan)

Finally! Bess Lovejoy’s book, Rest in Pieces: The Curious Fates of Famous Corpses, is coming out on Tuesday, March 12–and there’s going to be a big launch party at the Rendezvous Jewel Box Theater in Seattle. Not only will there be a reading and a book signing, but rumor has it that there will also be a guest skull or two. I can’t think of a better excuse to raise a glass. Na zdraví to Bess and to all those dead folks!

In the meantime, check out her article featured in The Stranger last week: “The Madam Who Turned to Stone.”
