John Daniel reading from his new novel GIFTED


Friday, April 14, 2017 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM


     JOHN DANIEL’s books of prose, including Rogue River Journal and The Far Corner, have won three Oregon Book Awards for Literary Nonfiction, a Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award, and have been supported by a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, among other grants and awards. A former Wallace Stegner Fellow and Jones Lecturer at Stanford University, he has taught as a writer-in-residence at colleges and universities across the country. Daniel lives with his wife, Marilyn Daniel, in the Coast Range foothills west of Eugene, Oregon.  Gifted is his first novel.

      “When Huck Finn lit out for the Territory, no doubt he found a mysterious, magical world much like that in John Daniel's modern coming-of-age tale.  The glories, the violence, the stirring spirit that fashioned our nation continue, and are vividly chronicled in this bold and generous novel.  Daniel has re-seen and re-gifted us all with our deepest, most cherished American stories, expressed here with poetic precision, amplitude, grace.”   —Tracy Daugherty, author of What Falls Away and The Boy Orator
