Host Heather Hirschi interviews author Melissa Eskue Ously at KALA
KALA presents its monthly series on Friday, October 15 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. October welcomes Award-winning author Melissa Eskue Ousley.

A Constellation of Scars, a finalist in the 2021 International Book Awards, is Eskue Ousley’s 6th novel. Her suspense novel, Pitcher Plant won a 2018 Independent Publisher Book Award. Her young adult novel, Sunset Empire, debuted in a bestselling boxed set. Her short stories have been included in Rain Magazine, The North Coast Squid, and various anthologies. Eskue Ousley lives with “her family, a neurotic dog, two charming cats, and a piranha” on the Oregon Coast. When she’s not writing, she can be found “volunteering for her local wildlife center, caring for injured owls and hawks.”
