Local Book Author is PEOPLE Magazine's Book Pick of the Week

 

It's the book that won the 2012 Oregon Book Award in Creative Nonfiction and was recently named PEOPLE Magazine's Book Pick of the Week. George Estreich joined us to talk about his award-winning memoir, The Shape of the Eye.
 
Unlike any memoir on the market, it centers on Estreich’s life as a stay-at-home father raising his Down syndrome daughter, Laura. Critics call it a “moving, heartbreakingly lucid story” that is a “poignantly eloquent meditation on the genetics of belonging.”
  • The Shape of the Eye Book Event
  • Thursday, May 23 at 7:00pm
  • Grass Roots Books, 227 SW 2nd Street, Corvallis
