Kyle Boelte reads from and discusses his new memoir The Beautiful Unseen (Soft Skull Press), which is about fading memory, his brother's suicide and San Francisco's fog. "Boelte's sure-footed prose makes The Beautiful Unseen a lovely journey. And a moving one," the Los Angeles Book Review writes. Free.
