Arnie Hummasti will share selections from his publishing project – “Afraid of Goosequills: The Wit and Wisdom of Neil Hummasti” – at 3 p.m. Saturday, December 15, at the Astoria Library. Admission is free.
In 2011, Astoria resident Neil Hummasti died from cancer. He left behind over half a million words of unpublished writing. Arnie Hummasti, Neil’s brother, established Svensen Pioneer Press to publish phase one of Neil’s writing, which includes two 90,000 word novels – “I See London, I See France…” and “Forty Ways to Square A Circle” – and a collection of seven short stories. Phase two will feature three works of theology.
“I believe my brother was a gifted writer, worthy of broad exposure,” said Arnie Hummasti. “My hope is to complete, in some measure, what he was unable to: to share his literary gifts with a wider audience.”
