Earthsea Cycle #06: The Other Windby Ursula K Le Guin
Thursday, May 15, 2014 07:00 PM
Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, Beaverton, OR
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.
Synopses & Reviews
The sorcerer Alder fears sleep. The dead are pulling him to them at night. Through him they may free themselves and invade Earthsea. Alder seeks advice from Ged, once Archmage. Ged tells him to go to Tenar, Tehanu, and the young king at Havnor. They are joined by amber-eyed Irian, a fierce dragon able to assume the shape of a woman. The threat can be confronted only in the Immanent Grove on Roke, the holiest place in the world and there the king, hero, sage, wizard, and dragon make a last stand.
In this final book of the Earthsea Cycle, Le Guin combines her magical fantasy with a profoundly human, earthly, humble touch.
An exciting re-launch of the classic Earthsea Cycle, by fantasy literature legend Ursula K. Le Guin, winner of a Newbery Honor, the National Book Award, Pushcart Prize, and six Nebula Awards.
"Le Guin understands magic and dragons better than anyone, and her writing only gets better with each new book. THE OTHER WIND is a triumph."
--Michael Swanwick, author of Stations of the Tide
"I adored THE OTHER WIND. Real mythmaking, done by a master of the craft. . . . The magic of Earthsea is primal; the lessons of Earthsea remain as potent, as wise, and as necessary as anyone could dream."
--Neil Gaiman, author of The Sandman
