Literati! Here in the ‘Cow, the land of Heming-by-the-way and the double entundra, stuff does happen! The University of Idaho, where I am jump-staring my career as a full time student, hosted Anthony Doerr last night, to an audience of about 900 people.
After discovering who does his hair, we exchanged stories and books: I have just read “All the Light We Cannot See,” which won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize, and he is about to read our own Fred Rivera’s “Raw Man” –Pulitzer nominated and winner of the Isabelle Allende Miraposa Award for Best New Fiction, 2015. Excellent reads, both, but only Raw Man is available on www.rawmanthebook.com or in our store.
A Word with You Press is re-scheduling Fred, Victor Villasenor, and Pulitzer Prize winner Jonathan Freedman to come to the ‘Cow this spring, rather than November as originally planned, as Idaho local Anthony Doerr will be coming back in November himself for a followup performance. We don’t want the events elevating blood pressure and leading to heavy beer consumption among those who will be in that impossible quandary of deciding which of these competing events to attend.
Look for our new contest launch this weekend, btw.
