Last night's visit from former Portlander Heidi Durrow was a major treat for those willing to ignore the forecasted bad weather. A full house of well-bundled fans greeted Heidi in her return to her hometown to celebrate the release of her debut novel in a paperback edition, after enjoying a year of tremendous acclaim in hardcover (including being named by both The Oregonian and The Washington Post as one of the top books of the year).
Here is a link to a review of the event by Oregonian writer George Rede. Below that is an interview Heidi did in the afternoon on Koin's Studio 6 -- and yes, she CAN do a very convincing southern grandma accent! We have a limited number of signed copies of The Girl Who Fell from the Sky available at Broadway Books! Congratulations, Heidi, on your well-deserved success!
