Seattle Books http://www.kplu.org en Searching for 'Bernadette' in the wilds of Seattle http://www.kplu.org/post/searching-bernadette-wilds-seattle The narrator of Maria Semple's newest book, <em>Where'd You Go, Bernadette,</em> is 15-year-old Bee Fox. She's a nice kid, a good musician and a great student. In fact, she's such a great student that her parents have promised her anything she wants — and she chooses a family trip to Antarctica.<p>But Bee's mom, Bernadette, doesn't really want to go. She doesn't enjoy travel. She doesn't like people. And, as Semple tells NPR's David Greene, she really does not love Seattle. "I was trying to capture my feelings for the city when I first moved here," she says. Fri, 24 Aug 2012 15:27:45 +0000 6088 at http://www.kplu.org Searching for 'Bernadette' in the wilds of Seattle
