Oregon author Brian Doyle's The Mighty Currawongs is a collection of headlong tales—exploring such riveting and peculiar topics as chess in the Levant, tailors who specialize in holes, how to report stigmata to your attending physician, the intense hilarity of basketball, how to have a bitter verbal marital fight in your car, an all-Chinese football team in Australia, soccer and Catholicism, what it's like to be in a ska band, a singing Korean baker, an archbishop who loses his faith between the salad and the entrée, genius Girl Scouts who save a radio station, and a baby born from a lake in Illinois. And some other fascinating stories. Really. Trust us.

Froelich's Ladder, the debut novel from Portland author Jamie Duclos-Yourdon, is a fabulist adventure novel set in a reimagined nineteenth-century Pacific Northwest. When Froelich disappears from the fourth-tallest ladder in the world, his nephew's quest to find him interlaces with the journeys of two spunky young women who outwit their guardians. In a Wild West populated with immigrants, skittish Civil War veterans, hungry clouds, a circus menagerie, and a few murderers, this fairy-tale twist on the American dream explores the conflict between loyalty and ambition, and the need for connection, even at the highest rungs.

Therese Oneill will be joined in conversation with fellow Oregon author Laurie Notaro.

A scandalously honest guide to the secrets of Victorian womanhood. If Unmentionable does not secure the Pulitzer Prize for Most Fascinating Book Ever, the whole gig is rigged. Therese Oneill opens the doors to everything we secretly wanted to know about the Victorian era, but didn't think to ask. Knickers with no crotches? Check. Arsenic as a facial scrub? Check. The infrequency of bathing and the stench of the Victorian human body? Check mate.

Soar back to the fearless 1920s in Crossing the Horizon,  Laurie Notaro's stunning historical novel that tells the true, little-known story of three aviatrixes in a race to be the first woman to fly across the Atlantic. The year is 1927, and Amelia Earhart has not yet made her record-breaking cross-Atlantic flight. Who will follow in Charles Lindbergh's footsteps and make her own history? Through striking photos, meticulous research, and atmospheric prose, Notaro brings Elsie Mackay, Mabel Boll, and Ruth Elder to life, pulling us back in time as the pilots collide, struggle, and literally crash in the chase for fame and a place in aviation history.
