Local writer Mary Gentry will read selections from her new book, Quite Contrary, a collection of essays covering the three and a half decades she’s lived in Olympia.

Mary moved to Olympia in 1966 and taught English and drama at Tumwater High School for several years. From 1979 – 2007 she enjoyed a career as an estate-planning attorney with the Olympia firm of Bean and Gentry. “Quite Contrary” is a collection of humorous personal essays about what Mary refers to as the ‘homely things of life.’
