Literati is thrilled to welcome Detroit-based author Kat Gardiner, in support of her debut collection of short fiction, Little Wonder. The collection springs from the year Gardiner spent in Anacortes, Washington, during her early twenties. Young and idealistic, she opened a coffee shop and music venue with her husband in the hopes of finding a home in the city's artistic community. The experiment lasted exactly one year. Gardiner closed the coffee shop and moved away from Anacortes, ending a stressful and dreamlike chapter in her life. Musical performance by Eliza Godfrey.
