Join us to dicuss the Kittitas County One Book One County selection, A Tale for the Time Being, by author Ruth Ozeki.

The novel won the LA Times Book Prize, was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and the National Book Critic’s Circle Award, and has been published in over thirty countries. It puts the diary of a 16-year-old from Tokyo who, among other things, is documenting the life of her great-grandmother, a Buddhist nun, into the hands of a novelist who finds it in a Hello Kitty lunchbox washed ashore, possibly as debris from the 2011 tsunami. The novel is concerned with time, cultural sustainability, quantum physics, history and myth.

Author Ruth Ozeki is an internationally-recognized Asian-American novelist and filmmaker. She will be visiting Central Washington University on Monday, February 26 and will be giving a writer’s craft talk and a public evening presentation in the SURC ballroom at 7 p.m.
