Maria Semple: Puyallup Festival of Books

11/01/2019 - 7:00pm

Maria Semple is a Seattle-based novelist and screenwriter. She is the author of several novels, including This One is Mine and Today Will be Different. Her New York Times, best-selling comedy novel, Where'd You Go, Bernadette was released in August 2019 as a major motion picture starring Cate Blanchett. Her work as a screenwriter includes Beverly Hills 90210, Mad About You, Saturday Night Live and Ellen. If writing ability has a genetic component, Maria has that angle covered. Her great uncle, Philip Barry, wrote The Philadelphia Story and her father, Lorenzo Semple, Jr. wrote the pilot for the TV series Batman. Holy screen credits, that's impressive!  

6 pm reception, 7 pm book talk with signing to follow.
