Tickets are now available for The Spokesman-Review’s Northwest Passages Book Club evening with Pulitzer Prize-winning Portland author Eli Saslow, whose highly anticipated book “Rising Out of Hatred” is due out next month.
Saslow will be in conversation on Sept. 24 with author Edward Humes, another Pulitzer Prize winning author, at the newspaper.
“Rising Out of Hatred” is based on Saslow’s PEN Award-winning story for The Washington Post and offers a window into America’s increasingly divided nature. The book explores the journey of a young man who grew up at the epicenter of white nationalism, then changed his views.
“No one can match Eli Saslow’s skill at telling the most improbable, humane and riveting tales of our time,” says Jane Mayer, New York Times best-selling author of “Dark Money.” “Anyone despairing at the hate that has fueled much of America’s politics ought to read this unforgettable story.”
The event is from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m at The Spokesman-Review Building, 999 West Riverside Ave. in Spokane. Tickets are available at Spokane7tickets.com.
General Admission tickets cost $5, and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The VIP Ticket Package costs $40 and includes a reserved seat, a copy of “Rising Out of Hatred,” and a glass of wine at the Terra Blanca Wine Bar during the author reception.
Auntie’s Bookstore will have copies of “Rising Out Of Hatred” for sale before and during the event at a 15 percent discount for Northwest Passage Book Club readers.
