Author Pam Houston at Midtown Reader

Midtown Reader is very excited to present author Pam Houston, who will be reading from and signing her latest book, DEEP CREEK.
At 31 years old, fresh off a tour promoting her first collection, Cowboys Are My Weakness, Pam Houston had “no job, no place to live except my North Face VE 24 tent.”
On an impulse and a good instinct, she spent her royalties on a 120-acre ranch near Creede, Colorado. It was more than she could afford, and required more maintenance than she could manage. And yet, twenty-five years later, it’s the piece of land that’s defined the largest part of her life. DEEP CREEK: FINDING HOPE IN THE HIGH COUNTRY [W. W. Norton & Company; January 29, 2019; $25.95 hardcover] tells the remarkable story of “that girl who dared herself to buy a ranch, dared herself to dig in and care for it, to work hard enough to pay for it, to figure out what other people meant when they used the world ‘home.”’
“There is so much beauty, wisdom, and truth in this book, I felt the pages almost humming in my hands. I was riveted and enlightened, inspired and consoled. This is a book for all of us, right now.” —Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild
