Author Event

Gary Lark

     River of Solace and
In the House of Memory

Stacie Smith

Open Burning


Thursday, April 6, 2017
Grass Roots Books and Music
7:00 pm


Gary Lark will be reading from River of Solace and In the House of Memory: Voices from Valley View Manor, both published in 2016. In the House of Memory  is a collection of 51 stories, poems, and monologues as told by the residents of Valley View Manor, a home for the elderly. The River of Solace is a series of narrative poems of a place and people very much like Coos County, Oregon. Stacie Smith’s Open Burning consists of forty-one poems that explore and describe landscape—both inner and outer—and the place where the two realms dovetail and converge.

*The authors will be reading and signing books at this event.
