Somehow, incredibly, Powell’s Books included PEOPLE LIKE YOU in their 2019 list of 25 Books To Read Before You Die.
The title is alongside works by Ursula K. LeGuin, Raymond Carver, Katherine Dunn, Ken Kesey, Charles D’Ambrosio, Lidia Yuknavitch, Barry Lopez, Brian Doyle, Terese Marie Mailhot, Mitchell Jackson, Joe Sacco, Beverly Cleary, Tom Spanbauer, Pete Rock, Ruth Ozeki, Jim Lynch… It’s really quite an incredible honor.
Thanks so much to the booksellers at Powell’s for supporting Northwest writers and for bringing them to the attention of readers everywhere.
Tonight is the launch reading at Powell’s City of Books for the beautiful art and literary anthology THE UNTOLD GAZE with stories by a whole host of incredible writers and brilliant paintings by the incomparable Stephen O’Donnell.
I’ll be reading at tonight’s event along with Lidia Yuknavitch, , Scott Sparling, Jude Brewer and Monica Drake.
