Join Oregon author Ellen Notbohm as she reads from and discusses the remarkable genesis and research for her award-winning novel The River by Starlight. Set in the waning years of the Montana frontier era, The River by Starlight weaves a sweeping century-old tale of passionate love, unimaginable loss, resilience and redemption embodied in one woman’s tenacious quest for self-determination in the face of devastating misfortune and social injustice. Based on a true story, its themes of women’s health, gender inequity, climate disaster and economic boom-and-bust remain powerfully relevant today.

The Eugene-Register Guard: “As rich in theme and detail as the Montana sky is in stars. . . impressive.”

Powell’s City of Books Staff Pick: “Really well done … don’t miss this.”

The Oregonian: “Mesmerizing debut novel features a woman fighting to keep her head above heartache in a world questioning her worthiness.”
