Author Event: A Short Story Reading by Richie Swanson

September 24 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Richie Swanson will celebrate the American Library Association’s Banned Books Weeks 2022, which champions “the freedom to read,” by reading Eden Never Heard, a short story set during early logging days on the upper Mississippi River. Though the story was never banned, it depicts two men in love who face the ban of their lifestyles by the values of colonial settlement circa 1850s.

Richie will sign copies of his novel First Territory, the story of a 16-year-old emigrant in love with a Native girl during the U.S. invasion of Yakama Indian homelands, 1855-1856. A reviewer in Whispering Winds Magazine called it “the most convincing piece of historical fiction I’ve ever read.”
