Emily Ruskovich’s Idaho tells the story of a couple living in North Idaho, reaching to uncover secrets of the past that have colored their lives with grief. Ruskovich’s debut novel, published early last year, will come close to the heart of many Inland Northwesterners, as it’s filled with depictions of Idaho’s panhandle. The state’s community reading initiative, Everybody Reads, is hosting eight opportunities to come together and discuss the book in various locations around the area, including the Palouse and Lewis-Clark Valley. The author presents in Moscow and at Uniontown’s Dahmen Barn on Wednesday, Nov. 7. She’ll be in Colfax and Pullman for two separate readings on Thursday, Nov. 8. See the link below for complete details, and plan not to miss a chance to hear from this acclaimed regional author.
Nov. 5-8; times and locations vary • Details at everybody-reads.org
