Joy McCullough discusses her debut young adult novel, Blood Water Paint. The novel is based on the true story of 17th century Italian Renaissance painter Artemisia Gentileschi's rape and subsequent trial. The heartbreaking story transports you to the artist's mind and explores the importance of speaking your truth.

Joy will discuss and sign copies of Blood Water Paint on Saturday, March 10, at 3:00 pm at University Bookstore in Seattle.
