Today we celebrate Valentine’s Day, Oregon’s statehood, and … the publication of Seven Stitches! Ooligan Press is thrilled to bring you the third companion book of the Blue Thread Saga. Read more about Seven Stitches, then join us on Thursday at Another Read Through for the official launch party.
It’s been a year since the Big One—the Cascadia subduction zone earthquake—devastated Portland. While Meryem Zarfati’s injuries have healed and her neighborhood is rebuilding, her mother is still missing. Refusing to give up hope, Meryem continues to search for her mother, even as she learns to live without her in a changed Portland. Along the way, she struggles with her Jewish-Vietnamese heritage and what it means to honor her ancestry. After she receives a magical prayer shawl handed down from her maternal grandmother, a mysterious stranger appears and Meryem is called to save a young girl living in slavery—in sixteenth-century Istanbul. The third companion in the Oregon Book Award–winning Blue Thread saga explores how we recover—and rebuild—after the worst has happened.
Help the author, Ruth Tenzer Feldman, celebrate the launch at Another Read Through on February 16 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Ruth will be answering questions, reading an excerpt, and signing copies. Refreshments will be provided by the team at Ooligan Press.
