In 2012 the Author! Author! literary series began with a very lofty goal: Bring some of the brightest literary minds to Central Oregon four times a year to share their books and engage audiences in discussions and thought-provoking ideas regarding their work. Now, five years later and entering its sixth season, Author! Author! has successfully lived up to its goal. The extraordinary line-up for the 2017/18 season features four nationally recognized, award-winning authors who have all spent time on best-seller lists.
