 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.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards

A groundbreaking work of science fiction, The Left Hand of Darkness tells the story of a lone human emissary to Winter, an alien world whose inhabitants can change their gender. His goal is to facilitate Winter's inclusion in a growing intergalactic civilization. But to do so he must bridge the gulf between his own views and those of the completely dissimilar culture that he encounters. Embracing the aspects of psychology, society, and human emotion on an alien world, The Left Hand of Darkness stands as a landmark achievement in the annals of intellectual science fiction.

Synopsis:

Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards for "Best Science Fiction Novel of the Year", this famous novel tells the story of a lone human emissary to Winter, an alien world whose inhabitants can change their gender. "An instant classic".--"Minneapolis Star-Tribune".

I was told this book was a classic and that I had to read it, so I wasn't expecting to enjoy it that much. But I couldn't put it down. The story is touching and compelling, and most of all human. Just a really beautiful book.
