Sarahlee Lawrence Reading and Discussion
Sarahlee Lawrence, author of River House, traveled the world and became an experienced river guide. In this memoir uniting stories of nature and travel with a journey of self-discovery, the author delivers her life, rooted in a childhood in the American West, like few authors can. Allison Hallett of the Portland Mercury writes "It's very simple: If you call Oregon your home… then you need to go to a bookstore and purchase a copy of Sarahlee Lawrence's River House. . . ."
Lawrence is in her element in the space between, whether that means an exotic river on the borders of Bolivia and Peru, or the log cabin she builds in a wilderness at the edge of an encroaching city. From a review in the Seattle Times: "Lawrence writes with remarkable candor about her loved ones; the joys and pitfalls of life in a small community; and the creeping development from upscale Bend 40 miles away. She is in her element writing about nature, and it's a treat to share her journey."
On March 8th, you can do one better than owning the book already on its way to becoming an Oregon classic: you can attend the book discussion and meet the PNBA-award-winning author in person at Annie Bloom’s Books in Portland, Oregon! The reading and discussion starts at 7:00 pm – see you there.
