Spend an evening with Christina Baker Kline, Pam Houston & Amy Irvine
Dear Literary Sojourn fans,
The spirit of Literary Sojourn will linger into the season!
Did you miss our incredible conversation with Nancy Pearl, a.k.a. America's Librarian, sharing her brand-new book, The Writer's Library: The Authors You Love on the Books That Changed Their Lives? We recorded it, and it’s still available on Crowdcast for a limited time. Watch Nancy Pearl’s talk here.
More free author events!
We’re excited to share two more literary events presented by Bud Werner Memorial Library this fall. These are free talks that are specially curated for Sojourn lovers like you!
Library Author Series: Christina Baker Kline
Spend an evening with Christina Baker Kline, author of the No. 1 New York Times bestseller Orphan Train, as she talks about The Exiles, her new, ambitious, emotionally resonant novel about three women whose lives are bound together in 19th-century Australia and the hardships they weather together as they fight for redemption and freedom in a new society.
In this gorgeous novel, Christina Baker Kline brilliantly recreates the beginnings of a new society in a beautiful and challenging land, telling the story of Australia from a fresh perspective, through the experiences of Evangeline, Hazel and Mathinna. While life in Australia is punishing and often brutally unfair, it is also, for some, an opportunity: for redemption, for a new way of life, for unimagined freedom. Told in exquisite detail and incisive prose, The Exiles is a story of grace born from hardship, the unbreakable bonds of female friendships, and the unfettering of legacy.
Join the virtual talk at 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 8 on Crowdcast, where you can watch and ask questions from the socially distant comfort of your home. Sign up so you can sign in.

Library Author Series: Pam Houston & Amy Irvine
Spend an evening in conversation with Amy Irvine and past Sojourn author Pam Houston as they share their new book, Air Mail: Letters of Politics, Pandemics, and Place. When the state of Colorado ordered its residents to shelter in place in response to the spread of coronavirus, award-winning writers Houston and Irvine—who had never met—began a correspondence based on their shared devotion to the rugged, windswept mountains that surround their homes, one on either side of the Continental Divide. As the numbers of infected and dead rose and the nation split dangerously over the crisis, Houston and Irvine found their letters to one another nearly as necessary as breath. Part tribute to wilderness, part indictment against tyranny and greed, Air Mail reveals the evolution of a friendship that galvanizes as it chronicles a strange new world.
Join the virtual talk at 7 p.m. on Monday, October 26 on Crowdcast, where you can watch and ask questions from the socially distant comfort of your home. Sign up so you can sign in.

Save the Date

Following our pandemic pause, the next Literary Sojourn is scheduled for Saturday, September 11, 2021 at the beautiful Strings Pavilion. Like you, we long for the time when we gather again with stellar authors for a full afternoon of literature among the fall foliage.
Watch for more 2021 author announcements in the new year. In the meantime, visit www.literarysojourn.org for reading lists surrounding the three authors who are still set to join us next year: Maaza Mengiste (who is now shortlisted for the Booker Prize!), Julia Phillips, and our MC Jess Walter (whose new novel, The Cold Millions, comes out in October — and Nancy Pearl raves about how great it is!). Keep watching your Literary Sojourn newsletters for more information.
