S-R mail call for novelist Jess Walter

Though he has not worked here in this century, former S-R reporter Jess Walter, now an acclaimed novelist, still gets mail at the newspaper.

The Slice has noted this before.

“He gets more mail here than I do,” said his brother Ralph, a talented S-R page designer.

The latest piece of mail sent to Jess here at the paper is a brochure for the “2013 Four Directions/Tree of Healing Conference on Spiritual, Emotional, Intellectual, and Physical Healing and Addictions Awareness.”

The Oct. 1-4 event is to take place at Northern Quest Resort in Airway Heights.

The return address is the Evergreen Council on Problem Gambling in Olympia.

Don't know a thing about them. Maybe they do great work. But their mailing list sure is out of date.
