Reading Tonight

posted by on August 20 at 9:43 AM


We have a poetry slam and one reading tonight, at Elliott Bay Book Company. Linda Hogan reads from People of the Whale, which is (according to Publishers Weekly) an “engrossing tale” that “employs just the right touch of spiritualism.” It’s about a fictional Native American tribe and a young man who might have “mystical whaling powers.” Hogan was shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize for a previous novel, Mean Spirit. I haven’t read her, but it’s a safe bet that if you’re interested in Native American fiction, this will probably make you happy.

The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.

she is actually a very good writer. i would recommend 'mean spirit' it's one of my favorites. she includes a bit of the mystical but its a good whodunnit set at the time when there was oil at osage.
