Local author, Matthew Robinson, reads from his debut novel, The Horse Latitudes, in the Portland Art Museum galleries. 

Robinson will be paired with Patriot’s Barn in the Wyeth Family exhibit on the 2nd floor, gallery 209.


The Horse Latitudes follows one Cavalry platoon’s time in Baghdad, Iraq. The book observes not only the firefights and their aftermath, but also the soldiers’ struggles within themselves: how to fight a faceless enemy, what it means to serve, how one soldiers, what makes a man, what makes a good man, what it might mean to die for this, and what it might mean not to.
