John Larison presents

Whiskey When We're Dry

Friday October 12th at 6:30pm

We welcome Oregon novelist John Larison to share his book, Whiskey When We're Dry.  This is a splendid tale of what the western US was like in the late nineteenth century, especially as lived through the eyes of young Jessilyn Harney, heroine of the entertaining story.  At the age of 17, the young sharp shooter finds herself orphaned on her family's homestead.  She disguises herself as as a young boy and takes off to find her outlaw brother, Noah, to bring him home.  Finding herself employed by the territory's violent Governor, whose militia is also hunting her brother - dead or alive, she discovers her true self.
