Connie Connally Book Launch

05/05/2024 - 2:00pm

Join us as we celebrate the release of Fire Music, the new novel by Connie Hampton Connally. Antal Varga, a Budapest violinist, is 78 years old when a young American stranger places a yellowed music sheet into his hands. With shock he recognizes his own teenage handwriting, for he himself wrote this piece in 1945, when his city was under siege.

Connie Hampton Connally has loved music and the written word all her life. She holds a BA in English from the University of Washington and an MFA in creative writing from Antioch University. She’s published magazine stories and newspaper articles, worked as an editor, taught high school English and elementary music, and is currently a respected presenter at writing conferences. Through teaching music Connie discovered the work of Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodály, who uplifted his nation through decades of war, political oppression, and social upheaval. She wrote her novels Fire Music and The Songs We Hide as a result. Connie is currently writing a third novel, set in Peru. Connie and her husband live in Tacoma. They travel frequently, since they have family members living abroad.
