Windfall Reading: Titus & Higgins

Tuesday, February 18, 2020

Hear writers Tom Titus and Steven L. Higgins.

This month’s Windfall Reading Series features writers Tom Titus and Steven L. Higgins.

Tom Titus is an “author, runner, forager, father, grandfather, and free-range philosopher who writes at the messy interface of human experience and the natural world.” His recent book, “Palindrome: Grateful Reflections from the Home Ground,” is a collection of short essays and poems “reveling in the emerald ripple of the Pacific Northwest.” Titus is co-creator of The Nature of Gratitude, a program of poetry, prose, music, and spoken word celebrating our grateful presence in the world. He is also a retired geneticist at the University of Oregon, having combined interests in music, education, and biology into a career in evolutionary genetics.

Steven L. Higgins is an avid reader who did not begin writing until he was 50 years old. He started writing fantasy/adventure when his youngest daughter was in middle school. That passion still remains with him even as that daughter now has middle school children of her own. He has published four novels: “Life and Death and the Stuff In-between,” “A Hero at Heart,” “Time After Time,” and “One Thing Leads to Another.” Higgins has lived at this end of the Willamette Valley since 1962, graduating from South Eugene High in 1967. He has been a part of the fiction writers group of the Lane Literary Guild since 1999.

The Windfall Reading Series is presented in partnership by Eugene Public Library and Lane Literary Guild. Refreshments served at intermission.
