25th Annual Oregon Book Awards
Join Literary Arts' annual celebration of the state's most accomplished published writers in the genres of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, young readers, and graphic literature.
Timothy Egan will host the ceremony. Timothy Egan is the author of several books, including "The Worst Hard Time," a history of the Dust Bowl, for which he won the National Book Award, and most recently, "The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire That Saved America", which details the Great Fire of 1910 that burned about 3 million acres and helped shape the U.S. Forest Service.
Egan is also an online opinion columnist for The New York Times. In 2001, he won the Pulitzer Prize as part of a team of New York Times reporters who wrote the series How Race Is Lived in America. He has done special projects on the West and the decline of rural America, and he has followed the entire length of the Lewis and Clark Trail. He lives in Seattle.
