Corky Parker with Jeff Hoyt
Reading and discussing Parker’s illustrated memoir, LA FINCA, Love, Loss & Laundry on a Tiny Puerto Rican Island.
La Finca begins with her family-rearing years on Vashon and moves to her island dream on Vieques, Puerto Rico, with words and images and a tale as colorful as the tropics she’s drawn to.
“Corky’s passion for the land, food, and culture of that tiny Puerto Rican island was infectious. The beauty of Vieques and La Finca shines brightly through in this enchanting memoir.” — Alice Waters
