Darvill’s Bookstore will host the launch of Seattle author Jeff Henigson’s young adult memoir “Warhead: The True Story of One Teen Who Almost Saved the World” at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 2. Jeff is the son of Phyllis and Robert Henigson, known for their generous support of the Orcas community. The conversation will be moderated by author Ayn Gailey and will explore Jeff’s teen battles against brain cancer, nuclear war and for his father’s love.
Booklist describes the memoir as “always gripping, often heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting.” David Ebershoff, the bestselling author of “The Danish Girl” and “The 19th Wife,” says: “Touching, vivid, full of humor and heart, Warhead shows what is possible when we refuse to accept a diagnosis of despair.”
Contact Darvill’s to pre-order or reserve a signed copy of “Warhead.” Refreshments will be served at the launch event.
Formerly an emergency officer with UNICEF and the United Nations, Jeff is now a full-time writer based in Seattle. He is a board member of the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival and a volunteer for a number of cancer-related causes. His website can be found at www.jeffhenigson.com.
