Anne Gudger with Christie Tate "The Fifth Chamber"

Anne Gudger will be in store at The Book Cellar to celebrate her new memoir The Fifth Chamber, in conversation with Christie Tate!

About the Book:

THE FIFTH CHAMBER is Anne’s debut memoir. Annie is pregnant with her first child and married to her beloved husband when he dies in a car accident on a mountain road. Annie must navigate single motherhood, mourning, and learning to love again. Crafted with lightning bolts of joy and sorrow, THE FIFTH CHAMBER is a tender and honest memoir about the dance of loss and life, and how grief can make the heart beat stronger than ever before. It’s more than a loss story. It’s a love story. 

About the Author:

Anne Gudger is a Portland writer who loves language and space on the page. She writes about love and loss and how we get from there to here. She’s fascinated with the heart and its metaphorical fifth chamber that holds more love, that holds shadows. She’s been published in Real Simple Magazine, The Rumpus, Slippery Elm, NAILED Magazine, Entropy, Tupelo Press, Atticus Review, The Timberline Review, Columbia Journal, Sweet Lit, Cutbank, Cutthroat, The Normal School, and elsewhere. It’s been said that Anne eats books and has since she first decoded words.
