Orca Books reading:
Lance Weller will read from his debut novel, Wilderness, published by Bloomsbury. Taking placein the time after the Civil War, with the setting divided between the battle-scarred South and the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, this is the story of a country torn in two and of the hard healing afterward. Annie Dillard wrote: “Here is a book in the great tradition of the novel: a vivid world that wraps and holds the reader who can well lose himself [or herself] in its grandeur."
Orca Books is located at 509 4th Ave E in downtown Olympia.
