The Oregon Book Awards Author Tour brings Justin Hocking, Cari Luna and Dawn Diez Willis to La Grande on May 27th.

Justin Hocking is the 2015 Oregon Book Award winner in creative nonfiction for The Great Floodgates of the Wonderworld.   John D’Agata calls the memoir ” a lovely, measured, and complex examination of how we manage to heal ourselves amidst the messy tumult of the world around us-a quiet and brilliant achievement of both emotion and technique.”

StillLifeDawn Diez Willis is a 2015 finalist in poetry for Still Life With Judas and Lightning. Brenda Shaugnessy says “This book is a marvel and Diez Willis a truth-teller with a major talent for breathtaking last lines.”
