Writers-in-Conversation Series

Cascadia is thrilled to announce a new monthly program called Writers-in-Conversation. In partnership with the Edmonds Book Shop the program will highlight the thoughts, creativity, and work of wonderful writers from the area. The focus of the series will be interviews with Pacific Northwest writers before an audience of lovers of art, literature, and the NW.
 
We start the series with a writer whose work is creative and engaging and who represents the Northwest in all the best ways. Sharma Shields is the author of a short story collection, Favorite Monster, and two novels, The Sasquatch Hunter’s Almanac and The Cassandra.
The interviewer and MC for the series is Michael N. McGregor a Seattle-based author whose book Pure Act: The Uncommon Life of Robert Lax was a finalist for a Washington State Book Award. After living his early life in Seattle, he spent 17 years as a professor of creative writing at Portland State University, where he helped found the M.F.A. in Creative Writing program.
 
The series’ kick-off conversation will take place at the museum on Thursday, August 8, starting at 6 p.m. and lasting until about 7:30.
 
Reserve your space for this inaugural event with Sharma Shields and Michael McGregor in conversation. McGregor will talk with Shields about her books, her life, and literature in general.
