First Person: Authors Talk
Guest Author Deborah Reed at KALA
KALA presents its monthly series on Friday, September 24 at 8pm. First Person: Authors Talk is an interview show featuring conversation about all things writerly. Each month, Host Heather Hirschi interviews a local writer live on the KALA stage, with questions from the audience and a few surprises. September welcomes guest Deborah Reed, novelist and owner of Cloud & Leaf Bookstore in Manzanita. A few years ago, Reed bought the well-loved bookstore and is now a vibrant contributor to the Coasts literary community.

Reed is the author of seven novels, including most recently, “Pale Morning Light with Violet Swan,” and “The Days When Birds Come Back,” both published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. She taught novel writing at the Hellenic American University in Athens, Greece, and the UCLA extension program in Los Angeles. Reed also was the co-director of the Black Forest Writing Seminars at Albert-Ludwig University in Freiburg, Germany. She now splits her time between the Oregon Coast and Berlin.
