It all started when…

NEA Big Read: Into the Beautiful North Kick-Off Author Event

Award winning author and poet, Luís Alberto Urrea, will be reading from and discussing his book, Into the Beautiful North, to kick-off the NEA Big Read: Columbia Gorge. Into the Beautiful North tells the story of an idealistic 19-year-old woman who is inspired by the film The Magnificent Seven to travel from her home in Mexico to the United States to enlist seven men who’ve left her town to return and help protect it from drug-dealing criminals.

This FREE event will take place at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 4th at The Dalles Civic Auditorium 323 E 4th St, The Dalles, OR.

There will be free copies of the book, in both English and Spanish, available at The Dalles Public Library, and the Hood River Library, as well as other locations.
