We are thrilled to welcome to our virtual stage three of our favorite authors to celebrate the publication of the paperback edition of Verge, the story collection by Lidia Yuknavitch.

The landscape of Verge is peopled with characters who are innocent and imperfect, wise and endangered: an eight-year-old black-market medical courier, a restless lover haunted by memories of his mother, a teenage girl gazing out her attic window at a nearby prison, all of them wounded but grasping toward transcendence. Clear-eyed yet inspiring, Verge challenges us with moments of uncomfortable truth, even as it urges us to place our faith not in the flimsy guardrails of society but in the memories held--and told--by our own individual bodies.

Lidia Yuknavitch is a writer of rare insight into the jagged boundaries between pain and survival. She is the author of the bestselling novels The Book of Joan, The Small Backs of Children, and Dora: A Headcase, and of the memoir The Chronology of Water. She is the recipient of two Oregon Book Awards and has been a finalist for the Brooklyn Public Library Literary Prize and the PEN Center USA Creative Nonfiction Award. She lives in Portland.

Cheryl Strayed is the author of the bestselling memoir Wild, the essay collection Tiny Beautiful Things, the novel Torch, and the collection of quotations Brave Enough. Her books have been translated into forty languages, and her essays and other writings have been published in numerous publications, including The Best American Essays, the New York Times, the Washington Post Magazine, Vogue, Salon, The Sun, and Tin House. She lives in Portland.

Pam Houston is the co- author of Air Mail: Letters of Politics, Pandemics, and Place, which she wrote with Amy Irvine. She is also the author of the memoir, Deep Creek: Finding Hope in The High Country, as well as two novels, Contents May Have Shifted and Sight Hound; two collections of short stories, Cowboys Are My Weakness and Waltzing the Cat; and a collection of essays, A Little More About Me. She teaches in the Low Rez MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts, is Professor of English at UC Davis, and is cofounder and creative director of the literary nonprofit Writing By Writers. She lives at nine thousand feet above sea level near the headwaters of the Rio Grande in Colorado.
