WordFest will be celebrating two book launches on Tuesday, May 4, with wine and dinner.
Robin Cody will be reading from his newest book, Another Way the River Has. Robin has written two other books set in the Pacific Northwest, a novel, Ricochet River, and Voyage of a Summer Sun, about his solo canoe trip from the source of the Columbia River to the ocean, and which received an Oregon Book Award.
Jane Isfeld Still, a WordFest regular, will be reading from her book, Mother’s Daze, a collection of short humorous pieces on motherhood. In March of last year, Jane read one of the essays which was well received by those attending WordFest. Encouraged by this response, she sent off her manuscript and it was accepted by Cedar Fort Publishers.
Both Robin and Jane will have copies of their books available for sale and to autograph.
WordFest’s literary experience will now be enhanced with wine. Each month Joel McNelly will be offering a selection of wines from Capstone Cellars for participants’ enjoyment, and Brits owner Alice Dietz will be adding a special dish for that night only to her usual menu offerings.
For Tuesday, May 4, The Brits will be offering Crab Cake Caesar Salad, and Capstone Cellars will be offering a special wine to complement the dish, along with other wines.
A select menu of dinners and desserts is available for those who wish to enjoy food with the readings. The Brits opens at 5:30 pm.
