Northwest Passages Book Club: Pam Houston

Pam Houston talks with columnist and author Shawn Vestal at the Bing Crosby Theater. Her new book is an elegy to the disappearing wild places on Earth, like her 120-acre ranch, where cellphone towers are banned and the pantry is always stocked against the next three-day snowstorm. An English professor at the University of California–Davis, Houston also is the author of  “Cowboys are My Weakness” and “Contents May Have Shifted.” Her new book, "Deep Creek," is on the Pacific Northwest Independent Bestseller List.
