February 9 we had the honor of presenting one of my favorite authors, Pam Houston. She braved the snow to give an entertaining account of her memoir, Deep Creek. Daniel Youmans of the Sunriver Magazine kindly shared pictures of the event with us. I hope you enjoy them. And I hope you read Deep Creek!
Deep Creek explores Pam’s deep connection to the land written with power, liveliness, and humor. Her home is at the 9000 foot level in Colorado is surrounded by dramatic snowcapped peaks. Pam Houston is one of the most vibrant voices in literature today. https://www.sunriverbooks.com/event/pam-houston-deep-creek

Reading is a joy! There are great new releases for your reading pleasure.
Lets remember the words on our Statue of Liberty, New Colossus, penned by Emma Lazarus in 1883.
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
MOTHER OF EXILES. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
We look forward to seeing you at Sunriver Books & Music!
