Headlining the next WordFest gathering will be Pam Young, co-author of the best-selling book, Sidetracked Home Executives: From Pigpen to Paradise, which has sold over one million copies. Pam has appeared on hundreds of television talk shows, including The Today Show, Live with Regis, CBS Morning Show, and Oprah. She finally makes it to the big-time by appearing at WordFest next Tuesday.
Pam will be reading from her newest book, The GOOD Book: Get Out Of Debt, on organizing one’s personal finances. Key to her popularity and success is her combination of humor with insight, providing readers with effective strategies and practical steps in achieving their personal goals.
Also reading that evening will be Dale Duman, a retired Lockheed engineer, who is working on his first novel. Dale will read a short story, entitled, “A Cowboy’s Last Days,” which is set in 1950s Montana, reflecting a tragedy that changed a man’s life forever.
Poet and short story writer Elizabeth Evans returns to read a story, “Favorite Novels,” about an encounter in a book store.
Local attorney and writer Patrick Kubin will be this month’s Guest Reviewer, providing feedback to the three presenters. Patrick’s fiction and nonfiction writing has been published in The Salal Review and The Columbia River Reader.
As usual, there will be an open mic time following the presenters, and The Brits owner Alice Dietz will be offering a select menu for those who wish to enjoy a meal with the readings.
Doors open at 5:30 pm.
