The NW Authors Series will open 2023 with a presentation by author Liz Prato. This is a hybrid event; join us at the library on the day of the event, or watch online: www.cannonbeachlibrary.org. This event is FREE and open to the public; masks will be required per author’s request.
Prato’s writings are a clever mix of memoir and cultural critique, and have been described as poetic, vivid, and compelling. Prato’s newest essay collection is “Kids in America: A Gen X Reckoning.” Her previous book, “Volcanoes, Palm Trees, and Privilege: Essays on Hawai‘i” was named a Top Summer Travel Read by the New York Times, and was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award. She is the author of the short story collection “Baby’s on Fire,” and her stories and essays have appeared in dozens of literary journals and magazines.
Liz Prato teaches writing, has guest lectured at a number of workshops and conferences, and is the Editor at Large for Forest Avenue Press. She currently lives in Portland with her husband and their furry feline friends. She lives for small presses, indie bookstores, community, and palm trees.
