The Author! Author! series began in 2012 as a way to expand the literary landscape in Central Oregon while raising funds for the Deschutes Public Library Foundation. With best-selling writers visiting for each annual series, Central Oregon has played host to numerous authors who have won Pulitzer Prizes, National Book Awards, and Edgar Awards, among other literary prizes. Featured author in February is Anne Lamott who has written seven novels and several bestselling books. Lamott received a Guggenheim Fellowship, taught at UC Davis, and led writing conferences across the country.
