A Novel Idea 20 Year Celebration Author Event at Bend High

Loading Events

A Novel Idea, the largest community read program in the state of Oregon, celebrates 20 years of building community one book at a time.

This is an in-person program.

This event is free by but tickets are required. Tickets will be available at https://www.dplfoundation.org/ starting April 10. Two per person.

A Novel Idea has taken readers around the world and throughout time. We’ve read amazing books, joined in on powerful programming, and had thought-provoking discussions over the last 19 years. Four authors from years past return to honor this special occasion: David James Duncan (2004), María Amparo Escandón (2006), Peter Heller (2014), and Anne Griffin (2020).
