Deb Taber event in Seattle

Tomorrow evening at 7 p.m., Deb Taber will be reading from and signing Necessary Ill at Seattle's University Bookstore ( 4326 University Way, N.E. – Seattle, Washington 98105). Necessary Ill has received starred reviews from both Publishers Weekly and Library Journal. Liz Bourke, reviewing the novel for, writes:

“At its heart, Necessary Ill concerns itself with character and situation; with the social experience of marked vs. unmarked bodies, and the ethics of preservation of life. Is it better to kill many in order that the species might survive? Is it right to permit the human race to drive itself to extinction, if by one's actions one can prevent it? Is it ever possible to act ethically in taking choices away from other people? Necessary Ill doesn't answer the questions it raises, or at least not all of them. But it asks them thoughtfully, and with an eye for character that makes for an enjoyable read.” (You can read her entire review here.)

I'll be there myself, of course.
