Callum Angus will join us for the NW Authors Series October presentation to discuss “A Natural History of Transition.” This short story collection disrupts notions of transformation, as characters grow as tall as buildings, turn into mountains, unravel hometown mysteries, and give birth to cocoons. His work is infused with a rich variety of alternative history, horror, and fantasy, and was a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award in Transgender Fiction, the Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction, and an Oregon Book Award/Ken Kesey Award in Fiction.
Callum Angus is a trans writer and editor living in Portland, Oregon. He holds an MFA in fiction from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, a BA in geography from Mount Holyoke College, and has taught writing at Smith College, UMass Amherst, and Clark College. Cal has worked as a bookseller, a fishmonger, a barista, a reporter, and an advocate helping transgender youth and their families navigate the world. He’s also worked in publicity and edits the literary journal smoke + mold.
This season is the return of in-person author events at the library. This season is also the launch of hybrid events, specifically tailored to blend live viewing and live streaming.
