Ross Gay’s The Book of Delights.

Each year, Literary Arts presents the culminating event of Multnomah County Library’s community reading program—an author lecture. This year, the event will be held virtually on Thursday, April 8 at 6:00 p.m (PDT) and will feature a talk from Ross Gay, followed by an interview with local bestselling author, Lidia Yuknavitch.

Our mission is to engage readers, support writers, and inspire the next generation with great literature.
