An Evening with THAT Brian Doyle
April 4, 2016 at 7pm
Suitable for mature audiences only

“Brian James Patrick Doyle of New Yawk is cheerfully NOT the great Canadian novelist Brian Doyle, nor the astrophysicist Brian Doyle, nor the former Yankee baseball player Brian Doyle, nor even the terrific actor Brian Doyle-Murray. He is, let’s say, the ambling shambling Oregon writer Brian Doyle, and happy to be so. Brian (born in New York in 1956) is the editor of Portland Magazine at the University of Portland, in Oregon. He is the author of many books, among them the novels Mink River (big) and Cat’s Foot (little; a friend of his says it is a ‘novella’ but that sounds like a disease or a sandwich spread), the story collection Bin Laden’s Bald Spot, the nonfiction books The Grail and The Wet Engine, and many books of essays and poems.”

Spend the evening with THAT Brian Doyle, the much beloved award-winning Oregon author. His latest novel, Martin Marten has received rave reviews, as do all of his public appearances. We’ll start the evening with a brief interview with the author, followed by Brian waxing poetic on whatever topics come to mind while interacting with the audience. After the presentation, meet the author at a book signing in the Lobby hosted by Waucoma Bookstore.
