The son of a World War II veteran and himself a decorated former Marine who fought a year in Vietnam, Karl Marlantes based his first two books on his military and post-military experiences. In Deep River, he draws movingly from his roots in a small logging town in the Pacific Northwest.

The new novel follows three Finnish siblings—two brothers and their sister—who emigrate to America at the turn of the 20th century, settling and coming into their own in a logging community in Washington state. Marlantes masterfully weaves a story of family, of immigration, of a region of our country carving out an identity.

Marlantes, a native of Oregon now living in rural Washington, discusses his vivid family chronicle in an event co-presented by Rainy Day Books.
