The launch party for Kim Henderson's chapbook...

...The Kind of Girl held at Cafe Aroma last weekend got a lovely write-up in the Valley Chronicle today.

"Here is what I love about writers," the party's host, author Eduardo Santiago is quoted as saying in the article. "We are a generous bunch. Kim chose to include her colleagues in her celebration today and I am here to celebrate them all."

...has a blog and that blog has a review, today, of The Kind of Girl by Kim Henderson. In it, reviewer Dymon Lewis writes:

"Perhaps the most striking feature of The Kind of Girl’s thirteen short-shorts is Henderson’s deft juxtaposition of adolescence and adulthood—the hazy, sun-bleached memories of youth slammed against the gradual onslaught of disappointments and concessions that is adulthood for these girls who are older but still so very unwise. The pieces are presented in almost chronological order, and we flash to a new girl in each story just a little further in her life than the girl before her."

Thanks, Dymon!
