 Upcoming Event

Thursday, May 15, 2014 07:00 PM
Welcome three of Portland's most talented authors as they discuss books near and dear to their hearts that have long languished out of print and are now available again through Pharos Editions: The Lists of the Past, a technically mesmerizing collection of stories by Julie Hayden; The Tattooed Heart and My Name Is Rose, two emotionally charged literary novels by Theodora Keogh; and Crazy Weather, an American Indian coming-of-age tale by Charles McNichols that serves as "an important document in our cultural history." Cheryl Strayed, Lidia Yuknavitch, and the legendary Ursula K. Le Guin will explore the history, context, and reasons they chose to introduce these titles and help bring them back to readers once more. The panel discussion will be moderated by editor-in-chief of Bitch Media Kjerstin Johnson. This event is sponsored by Bitch Media: Feminist Response to Pop Culture.

Please note: Signed copies will be signed by the title's respective curator and not by the original author.

About the Author

Robert Atwan has been the series editor of The Best American Essays since its inception in 1986. He has edited numerous literary anthologies and written essays and reviews for periodicals nationwide.

Cheryl Stayed's award-winning stories and essays have appeared in more than a dozen magazines, including the New York Times Magazine, Allure, Elle, and Nerve. Widely anthologized, her creative nonfiction has been selected twice for The Best American Essays, and Joyce Carol Oates singled her out for the opening piece in The Best New American Voices 2003. In its review of the anthology Women Who Eat: A New Generation on the Glory of Food, Publishers Weekly highlighted her tale of learning to make the perfect pudding for a tapioca-loving man. Raised in Minnesota, Strayed has worked as a political organizer for women's advocacy groups and was an outreach worker at a sexual violence center in Minneapolis. She holds an MFA from the Syracuse University Graduate Creative Writing Program.
