Author event with Karl Marlantes
Tue, Aug 13 6:30 pm
Parnassus Books is thrilled to welcome Karl Marlantes author of Deep River. Karl Marlantes made his name with the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller, 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.
