The selection for Multnomah County Library’s 19th annual community reading project, Everybody Reads, is acclaimed author and poet Ross Gay and his collection of essays, The Book of Delights.

Each year, Literary Arts presents the culminating event of the program—an author lecture. This year, the event will be held online on Thursday, April 8 at 6 p.m (Pacific) and will feature a 30-minute talk from Ross Gay, followed by an approximately 40-minute interview with local bestselling author, Lidia Yuknavitch.

The program will offer free registration for community members suffering financial hardship, as well as a range of ticket rates, to ensure this event can be accessible to all.
