Author Lily King’s “Euphoria” has been chosen for the 2016 A Novel Idea … Read Together, the Deschutes Public Library Foundation announced at tonight’s official unveiling.
Set in 1933, “Euphoria” is the story of three anthropologists caught in a love triangle. According to King’s website, it was “inspired by events in the life of revolutionary anthropologist Margaret Mead.” It won the 2014 Kirkus Prize for Fiction.
In its 13th year, A Novel Idea is a community-wide reading event held each spring, featuring free book discussions, workshops and other book-related programming, culminating with a visit by the author. A Novel Idea 2016 kicks off April 9 at the Downtown Bend Library. King will appear at Bend High School on May 1. Tickets become available to the public April 16 online and at all Deschutes Public Library branches.
