Mark Pomeroy

Please join us as we welcome Mark Pomeroy who will be reading from his new novel The Tigers of Lents, published by the University of Iowa Press (2024).

The Tigers of Lents tells the story of the Garrison family, who live in Lents, an outer neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. At the heart of it all, there are the three Garrison sisters: Sara, the eldest, a fiery soccer star on the precipice of pulling herself out of the life of poverty she's always known; Elaine, shy and struggling with the weight she carries both physically and mentally; and Rachel, a reader and poet whose imagination stalls at trying to picture a better life.

Mark Pomeroy leads writing workshops in Portland Public Schools. His first novel The Brightwood Stillness was published by Oregon State University Press in 2014. He is a recipient of an Oregon Literary Fellowship for fiction, and his short stories, poems, and essays have appeared in a variety of publications. He lives with his family in NE Portland.
