On Thursday, March 10th, the Oregon Book Awards Author Tour visited the North Bend Public Library. Oregon Book Awards finalists Jennifer Richter and Carol Ann Bassett offered free workshops at the library on Thursday afternoon. On Thursday evening, they were joined by Oregon Book Awards finalist Henry Hughes (pictured at left) for a reading at the library.
During her workshop, Carol Ann Bassett showed slides from her visits to the Galapagos, and participants had the chance to write about nature and share their writing with the group. Jennifer Richter led workshop participants in writing poems about mothers and other family members. In the videos shown below, each of them talk briefly about the focus of their workshops.
After the 7:00 p.m. reading, audience members asked all three authors questions about their work and their writing lives, and stayed to buy books and continue their conversations. Thanks to the North Bend Public Library for their support for this tour!
