Spend an evening with best-selling Oregon author Molly Gloss hosted by your local library in Christmas Valley on Thursday, April 25, 2019 and in Lakeview on Friday, April 26, 2019, both at 6:30 PM. A fourth-generation Oregonian, Gloss’ work often concerns the landscape, literature, mythology and life of the American West. 

May contain: advertisement, poster, person, face, head, horse, mammal, and animal

Gloss’ five novels, including The Hearts of Horses and Falling From Horses, span the time from homesteading the northwest in the 1890s to a near future space colony. “[To] my way of thinking, there’s a continuous line between historical fiction and science fiction. We are every bit as distanced from the past as we are from the future,” says Gloss.
Molly Gloss has been awarded the Oregon Book Award, a Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award, the PEN West Fiction Prize, the James Tiptree Jr. Award; as well as a Whiting Writers Award. In her writing she seeks to retell the classic American western story as a narrative of communities and human individuals, shaping it around the realities of the historical West and finding a central place in it for women.
