Third Tuesday Author: Amy Schutzer
Enjoy an evening with author Amy Schutzer on Tuesday, April 21 at 7pm. Amy Schutzer's second novel, Spheres of Disturbance, is a Finalist in the 2015 Oregon Book Awards.
From Karen Ackland’s ForeWord Review (Summer 2014): "A pregnant potbellied pig and a dying woman are at the heart of this novel about birth, death, and the power of love. Amy Schutzer’s whimsical Spheres of Disturbance is narrated by nine different characters, including a pig named Charlotta, during a single day, as a small town comes to terms with one woman’s decision to die, even as she acknowledges all that she loves and will miss."
Amy Schutzer’s first novel, Undertow, was a Lambda Literary Award finalist, a Violet Quill Award finalist, and a Today’s Librarian “Best of 2000” Award-winner. She is the recipient of an Astraea Grant for Fiction and a grant from the Barbara Deming Memorial Fund. Finishing Line Press published Taking the Scarecrows Down, a chapbook of her poetry, in 2011. Her poetry has appeared in a variety of national literary reviews and magazines.
She lives in Portland, Oregon and is an avid organic gardener.
