 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.

Even though I really didn't like the first Earthsea book, I'm so glad I decided to read this second one. I found this setting of mysterious priestesses belonging to an ancient order to be much more intriguing than the barrage of countless islands in the first book. I also felt the "eaten one" to be a much more interesting character, full of depth, as compared to the mostly one-dimensional angry Ged of book one. The wait to see how this new storyline connected with the first also kept me interested. Worth checking out!
