Lake Oswego Public Library Third Tuesday Author Series: Ellen Notbohm

Date: September 18, 2018

Time: 7:00 p.m.

Location: Lake Oswego Public Library

Join Portland author Ellen Notbohm as she reads from her award-winning debut novel, The River by Starlight, 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.

Set in the waning years of Montana’s homestead period, Annie and Adam Fielding’s dreams of prosperity and family shatter as an enigmatic illness of mind and body plagues Annie’s pregnancies and exacts a terrible price. Confronted with the societal stigma, ignorance, and gender-biased laws of the day, their happiness and way of life begins to unravel, and the only path ahead leads to an unthinkable turn of events.

Based on a true story researched across six states and provinces, The River by Starlight explores a history rarely seen in fiction. Its themes of women’s mental health, gender inequity, climate disaster and economic boom-and-bust remain powerfully and painfully relevant today.
