It’s easy for characters to get lost in the grandeur of an epic, but Annie Proulx always masterfully maintains focus on the small-scale humanity. The Pulitzer Prize– and National Book Award–winning and Seattle resident behind The Shipping News and “Brokeback Mountain” returns to read from her new book, Barkskins. The novel targets two illiterate seventeenth-century New France woodsmen and follows their kin over 300 years to illustrate mankind’s taming and destruction of the wilderness. Admission to this Seattle Arts and Lectures event includes a copy of Barkskins.
