Bette Lynch Husted, All Coyote's Children

 

Pendleton author Bette Lynch Husted joins us on Monday, June 11th, at 7 pm to read from her debut novel, All Coyote’s Children, published by Oregon State University Press.

Husted’s first collection of essays, Above the Clearwater: Living on Stolen Land, was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award and the WILLA Award in creative nonfiction. She is also the author of At This Distance: Poems and Lessons from the Borderlands, a collection of essays. She has been a Fishtrap fellow and an Oregon Arts Commission recipient.

Her newest book, a haunting novel, tells the story of Jack and Annie Fallon, living what seemed the ideal life. But a good way of life can disappear almost overnight. The book explores the shifting boundaries of family and community while grappling with the conflicts and consequences of white settlement of native ground, weaving a tale of cultures and families caught in the inescapable web of who they are and what they have inherited.

Ursula K. Le Guin said of this book, “The emotional intensity of All Coyote’s Children might be overwhelming, if the characters weren’t so humanly lovable.”
