JENNY FORRESTER with IJEOMA OLUO

 

Jenny Forrester reads tonight from her memoir, Narrow River, Wide Sky , another fine book published by Portland’s Hawthorne Press.

Narrow River, Wide Sky unwrites the story of family and America through the flutter of hearts beating or beaten up, through a skull on the piano, through the desert of our longings into the river of our sorrow—or is it hope, or maybe love, that keeps us alive in spite of ourselves. Jenny Forrester has hit the mother lode.” --Lidia Yuknavitch.

Jenny Forrester, curates Portland’s Unchaste Readers series. She appear in conversation with Seattle writer Ijeoma Oluo, who was one of Seattle Magazine’s, “Most Influential People in Seattle.” She's the Editor-At-Large at The Establishment - a media platform run and funded by women, and is due to have her own new book, So You Want to Talk About Race, out later this year from Seal Press.
