Molly Gloss: Outside the Gates, The Dazzle of Day, and Wild Life

We are thrilled to be welcoming Molly Gloss back to our bookstore twice this year: first on Tuesday, April 2ndd, to read from three of her earlier works, just reissued by Saga Press (Simon & Schuster) and then again on Wednesday, September 18th, to read from her forthcoming new collection of stories, Unforeseen, to be published this summer by Saga Press.

The reissued titles include her very first book, a dystopian fantasy novel entiled Outside the Gates; the futuristic novel The Dazzle of Day, and one of her most-loved novels, Wild Life, set at the fringe of the Northwest frontier in the early 1900s and featuring a cigar-smoking, trouser-wearing, free-spirited writer AND Sasquatch. This is going to be one fun evening!

A fourth-generation Oregonian, Molly Gloss grew up in rural Oregon and current lives in Portland.Her two most recent novels are Hearts of Horses and Falling from Horses. She has won several awards for her writing, including an Oregon Book Award, a Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award, the PEN West Fiction Prize, the James Tiptree Jr. Award, and a Whiting Award. She has taught writing and literature of the American West at Portland State and was a visiting professor at Pacific University's low-residence MFA program in writing. If you didn't get a chance to see the tribute to Ursula K. Le Guin at which Molly spoke, you should watch it online.
