Diana Abu-Jaber kicks off 2013-2014 Reading Series

Join the celebration this Tuesday, October 8, as we kickoff our 2013-2014 Reading Series with the "witty and entertaining" novelist Diana Abu-Jaber. Named "one of the most notable Arab authors in the United States," Diana's latest novel, Birds of Paradise, has received tremendous praise and has been selected as an Indie Books Pick.

Diana is also the author of the award-winning memoir, The Language of Baklava, plus the best-selling novels Origin and Crescent, the latter of which was awarded the 2004 PEN Center USA Award for Literary Fiction and the American Book Award. Her first novel Arabian Jazz won the 1994 Oregon Book Award and was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award. Diana teaches at Portland State University.

The reading begins at 6:00 pm at Darvill's Bookstore in Eastsound, followed by wine & hors d'oeuvres and open mic. The event is free and open to the public.
