Award-winning authors reading at Corvallis
On Monday, April 20th at 7pm, we are honored to have three Oregon Book Award winning and nominated authors visiting our library. They will be reading from their books, and afterward there will be conversation with the authors, book sales and book signing.
Booklist says about Havazelet’s novel: “Havazelet writes with almost hallucinatory acuity of the mind’s endless churning of memories, fears, and dreams, of how the body manifests the soul’s torment, and of the way the past is forever bleeding into the present, creating a darkly perceptive, transcendently rapturous drama of devastation and renewal.”
School Library Journal says about Ryan’s book: “Ryan does a wonderful job of portraying a group of creative young people with limited finances, fluid sexuality, and complicated relationships. This novel celebrates the process of becoming an adult without providing any easy answers.”
Neil Browne’s book, The World In Which We Occur, was a finalist for the Sarah Winnemucca Award for General Nonfiction.
About Browne’s book: “The degradation of the physical environment and democratic decay, for Browne, are rooted in the same problem: our persistent belief that humans are somehow separate from their physical environment.”
Thanks to Literary Arts, the organization responsible for the Oregon Book Awards, for organizing this event. Thanks also to the Friends of the Library for their sponsorship. Books will be sold by the OSU Bookstore.
