Karl Marlantes made his name with the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller, the “powerful and moving” (James Fallows, Atlantic) Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War. Now with his new novel, Deep River, Marlantes applies the epic narrative sweep of Matterhorn to a family saga about Finnish immigrants to the Pacific Northwest. Marlantes draws glancing inspiration from his own family history to tell a story against the backdrop of a logging industry clashing with the radical burgeoning labor movement, World War I, and the upheavals of early twentieth century America. Layered with fascinating historical detail, and vivid evocations of the pristine beauty of the primeval forest, Deep River is an ambitious and timely exploration of the place of the individual, and of the immigrant, in an America still in the process of defining its own identity. Featuring musical guest, Saloon! Receive a free ticket with the pre-purchase of Deep River. This event is part of the North Cascades Institute’s Nature of Writing Series.
