George Wright to Read at Broadway Books

On Tuesday night, George Wright will be at Broadway Books at 7 pm to read from his newest novel, Driving to Vernonia. The story is told by Edmund Kirby-Smith, who is approaching his fiftieth birthday. Just when his life should be at its peak, he loses everything. With compassion and daring, the author explores one man’s loss of self and chronicles his journey to reconnect with his past and reclaim what is there. Driving to Vernonia is a penetrating story of deprivation, laced with love and anger, violence and self-discovery. George is also the author of the Oregon Trio: Baker City 1948, Tillamook 1952, and Roseburg 1959 – three novels set in small-town Oregon in the forties and fifties. After the reading and Q&A, George will be available to sign copies of his newest book as well as books from the Oregon Trio.
