Meet Oregon Author John Larison
02/19/2019

The Stayton Public Library is excited to announce an author visit with Oregon author John Larison on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at 7:00 pm in the E. G. Siegmund Meeting Room. There will be a reception accompanying the event. 

 

John Larison was born in Philomath, OR in 1979 and was a fly fishing guide and high school English teacher before turning full-time to writing. His most recent novel, Whiskey When We’re Dry, was a Los Angeles Times Bestseller, an Indie Next Pick, and was named a Best Book by O Magazine, GoodreadsEntertainment Weekly, Powell's, and others. It is currently being developed for a feature film. He lives with his family in Bellfountain, OR.  

 

Whiskey When We’re Dry is a 2019 Oregon Book Award Finalist. In the spring of 1885, Jessilyn Harney finds herself orphaned on the family’s remote ranch. She cuts her hair, dresses in men’s clothing, and sets off on her undersized horse to reunite with the last family she has left--a big brother turned notorious gunfighter. Wrestling with her brother's outlaw identity, and haunted by questions about her own, Jess must outmaneuver those who underestimate her, ultimately rising to become a hero in her own right. Told in Jess's wholly original and unforgettable voice, Whiskey When We're Dry is an epic as expansive as America itself--and a reckoning with the myths that are entwined with our history. 

 

The Stayton Public Library’s speaking events for 2019 are sponsored in part by the Stayton Friends of the Library and the Marion County Cultural Corporation.
