Deschutes Public Library is pleased to celebrate Oregon author Molly Gloss during the month of March with a series of programs and readings as part of the Celebrate Oregon Authors project. The programs are free and open to the public.



Molly Gloss, a fourth-generation Oregonian, lives in Portland. In 1996 she was the recipient of a prestigious Whiting Writers’ Award. Her novel The Jump-Off Creek is a Pacific Northwest classic, a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award, and winner of the Oregon Book Award and the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award. The Dazzle of Day, a novel of the near future, received the PEN West Fiction Prize and was a New York Times Notable Book. Wild Life, set in the woods and mountains of Washington State at the turn of the twentieth century, won the James Tiptree Award. The Hearts of Horses, recently released, takes place during the winter of 1917 among the farms and ranches of Eastern Oregon, and has already garnered widespread attention and praise in the national press.
