Cannon Beach Book Company will host an evening with author Karl Marlantes on Thursday, July 11th at 7 p.m.
Marlantes – a Vietnam vet, Rhodes Scholar, and North Coast native – made his name with the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller MATTERHORN: A NOVEL OF THE VIETNAM WAR. Now with his new novel, DEEP RIVER,Marlantes applies the same epic narrative sweep to a family saga about Finnish immigrants to the Pacific Northwest. Marlantes draws glancing inspiration from his own family history to tell a story against the backdrop of a logging industry clashing with the radical burgeoning labor movement, World War I, and the upheavals of early twentieth century America.
Bubbly and homemade treats will be served after the talk while Marlantes signs books and chats with attendees. Books will be available for purchase.
This event is free and open to the public.
Cannon Beach Book Company is located at 130 N. Hemlock, Suite 2. 503.436.1301
