Writer Craig Lesley at the Library

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

At this month's Windfall Reading, hear Craig Lesley and Anita Sullivan.

This month’s Windfall Reading will feature writers Craig Lesley and Anita Sullivan.

Celebrated Northwest writer Craig Lesley writes about the rural people and places of this region, particularly working-class people who are rarely the focus of modern fiction. He is especially attracted to oddballs and eccentric characters from small towns. Widely known for his novels “Storm Riders,” “The Sky Fisherman,” “River Song,” and “Winterkill,” he has also written a memoir and edited anthologies. Lesley has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize twice, and has been honored with three Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Awards, the Western Writers of America Golden Spur Award for Best Novel, and an Oregon Book Award.

Anita Sullivan will read from her recent book “The Bird That Swallowed the Music Box,” inspired by her interests in music, the natural world, and language.  She has also published two poetry chapbooks, a novel, two essay collections, and many book reviews and anthologized works.

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